Warmwell House is a beautiful Jacobean manor house with super-comfortable bedrooms, elegant dining and drawing rooms, set amidst formal gardens, and informal parkland in the Dorset countryside. It is 15 minutes from mainline trains at Dorchester or Wool, and 10 minutes from the coast.
The perfect setting for a destination wedding for up to 24 house guests and 120 guests overall. Start with a cream tea on Friday afternoon and guests can enjoy the pool and tennis court or get busy with all those finishing touches. The Jacobean Dining Room provides a traditional ambience for an intimate dinner for close friends and family in the evening. On Saturday couples can get married in the 13th century church at the end of the drive or alternatively they can enjoy a wonderful ceremony with a registrar or celebrant in the elegant gardens.
After the marriage the Georgian Square Garden is an idyllic spot for a traditional champagne reception with far-reaching views over the Dorset countryside. As evening draws in guests make their way to the Kitchen Garden marquee for a delicious Wedding Breakfast. The adjacent double-height Coach House is a spectacular place for dancing the night away with a rustic bar area and cosy chill-out booths in the old stables. To guarantee against inclement weather the luxury amenity block (with disabled facilities) is right next door.
The eight beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms in the house, along with the cosy shepherd’s huts and bijou Lodge, will ensure every guest sleeps soundly before waking up to a well deserved full-English breakfast on Sunday. There’s no rush to pack up and leave. Guests can take their time and maybe enjoy a little more time by the pool before heading home. Alternatively the beach is a 10 minute drive away if guests want to round off the weekend with some bracing sea air.
Steeped in history and the personal touches of a much-loved family home, Warmwell House is the perfect backdrop for a unique and memorable weekend.
