Tucked away in the heart of Exmoor National Park near the village of Wheddon Cross, Little Quarme offers a stunning setting for weddings. A mere 45 minutes’ drive from Taunton and the M5, it provides convenient access to both nature and town.
Little Quarme’s picturesque location is ideal for weddings of various styles, especially suited for more intimate gatherings. The outdoor gazebo, with its scenic view of the Quarme Valley, serves as a charming spot for ceremonies. For flexibility, couples can choose alternative sites in the gardens, with a licensed barn available for less favourable weather. The marquee lawn, alongside the gazebo, opens onto 18 acres of gardens and fields, including a tranquil lily pond and stream.
Little Quarme invites couples to create their dream wedding with freedom and flexibility. Whether envisioning a relaxed and informal celebration, a festival-inspired vibe with fire pits and florals, or a vintage charm with retro props, the options are limitless. The venue accommodates gatherings ranging from elopements to weddings with around 80 guests.
Little Quarme provides the canvas for your vision and the freedom to choose your suppliers. Couples can opt for their own caterers, DJs, live bands, bars, and more. Alternatively, the venue is happy to recommend local suppliers with a successful track record at Little Quarme.
The team at Little Quarme is ready to help every step of the way, offering support if you’d like. Alternatively, they respect the couple’s autonomy, allowing them to independently take the reins and orchestrate every detail. It’s about crafting a wedding that resonates with the couple’s unique style, creating an unforgettable experience for themselves and their loved ones.
Yes, of course - we don't charge any corkage fees.
No, you are free to choose your own suppliers. All we ask is that if a marquee company or caterer has yet to work here, they do a site inspection so there are no nasty surprises before the wedding. Of course, we are also delighted to recommend local suppliers if you want us to.
Couples and any helpers can access the site at 10.30am on the day the hire starts - so if you have booked a Friday to Sunday wedding, you can begin decorating at 10.30am on Friday morning. The site must be clear by 4pm on the Sunday.
Yes, you can book a ceremony only for up to 50 guests. Ceremony-only weddings are generally held Tuesday to Thursday outside of school holidays, but please contact us to discuss a suitable date. The price for parties of under 10 is £395 or £595 for larger parties.
We'd like to ask that amplified music be turned off at midnight, but you can continue your celebrations with a small personal speaker after this. We just ask you to respect the nearest neighbours, around 1/2 a mile away across the fields.
