An ancient castle and comfortable country home with dramatic vistas and subtropical gardens. Dramatically sited on a wooded hill, a castle has existed here since at least Norman times, with an impressive medieval gatehouse and ruined tower giving a reminder of its turbulent history.
The castle that you see today became a lavish country home during the 19th century for the Luttrell family, who lived here for 600 years. The castle boasts spectacular views toward the Bristol channel, the Quantock hills and up to the moors of Exmoor.
The beautiful Tenants Hall is where we hold civil ceremonies. Located in the upper storey of the 15th-century gatehouse, the Hall is well suited to summer weddings.
You'll be illuminated by Tudor windows and chandeliers, hanging from its open timberwork roof. Or you might choose this majestic area of the castle for winter and Christmas ceremonies. Brides can make their entrance down the magnificent oak and elm staircase, dating back to the Stuart era.
