Our conjoined dining rooms can accommodate up to 60 people seated for the wedding banquet, or we can accommodate tipis outside for larger parties of up to 200 people. Our weddings come as a catering package that can be tailored to suit dietary needs. We’re lucky to be surrounded by Somerset farmland, so all the produce we use in our breakfasts is locally sourced – from meat to veggies to herbs.

Over night Luxury

A sweeping staircase leads up to 9 richly appointed bedrooms, with furnishings designed to reflect the traditional elegance of the house while incorporating all modern facilities and a little bit of fun in the detail.

All bedrooms are doubles with en-suite facilities and views over the estate. All room rates include a cooked breakfast.

Backwell House is a lovely place to relax for a few days before or after your wedding day.

Let’s Party

Our unique bar is a spectacular location for your sparkling champagne reception or a late night party after your big day. To a soundtrack of tinkling keys, celebrate with bubbles, or prop your elbows on the bar for a late night scotch on the rocks. Our four indoor reception rooms can be hired exclusively and on warmer evenings your guests can wander out onto the lawn.
