Hestercombe Gardens

Taunton, Somerset

Hestercombe is a classic, romantic English garden and a perfect setting for your wedding.

This breathtakingly beautiful garden, covering over fifty acres – once neglected – has been lovingly restored to it original splendour, becoming one of Britain’s best-loved gardens with international acclaim.

Hestercombe is licensed for civil ceremonies and has the advantage of being able to cater for your ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening party all at one magnificent location.

Lakes, cascades, temples, rills, shade-dappled pathways, romantic corners and views to take your breath away, crate a spectacular backdrop to capture your memories. We offer one overall venue hire cost giving you the freedom to use as many of our facilities as you wish to suit the style and theme of your wedding.

The Bampfylde Hall - seats up to 150 guests for your ceremony and 112 for formal dining with an adjoining covered Courtyard and patio for live music and al fresco dining.

The Orangery - offers quiet solemnity for your ceremony for up to 70 guests with the option of ‘marquee ends’ to increase capacity. The Orangery lawn and Victorian Terrace are perfect for an elegant drinks reception with magnificent views across the Great Plat with Hestercombe House as a backdrop.

The Woodland Barn - in the heart of the Formal Garden is a self-contained rustic barn accommodating up to 40 guests seated and 80 guests for an informal reception.

The Temple - in the Landscape Garden is a romantic, intimate and unique venue for your ceremony. Perched high above the Pear Pond, the Temple has breathtaking views across the garden and beyond to Taunton Vale. It holds 12 to 14 people inside with a space on the lawn for up to 70 additional guests.
