Hestercombe is the quintessential romantic English country garden and a stunning wedding location. The fifty acre estate has been lovingly restored to its original period splendour and is a scene of lakes, temples and waterfalls.

Nestled in Somerset countryside, this picture-perfect venue is conveniently located for your wedding guests - only 3 miles from Taunton and just 15 minutes from junction 25 of the M5.

Hold your ceremony in the Edwardian Orangery or the Temple Arbour, high up in the Landscape Garden. Party the night away in the Bampfylde Hall with its high timber beams and canopy of fairy lights.

From intimate, outdoor ceremonies in the ornate garden Temple to the light-filled Orangery with garden views and the charming and spacious 17th-century Bampfylde Hall, you’ll discover the perfect places for your dream wedding at Hestercombe.
