Yarlington House, situated near the outskirts of the village of Yarlington in Somerset, is a stunning Georgian stately home wedding venue that perfectly embodies the quintessential British period property. Crafted with mellow brick and stone facings, the estate is nestled in private parkland and boasts beautifully landscaped formal gardens.
Capacity and Facilities
Upon entering the property via a private drive, guests are greeted by woodlands on one side and mature trees on the other. The gardens are set within their own parkland, offering an expanse of breath-taking beauty as far as the eye can see. The rose garden provides a charming ceremony location, surrounded by pleached limes and featuring a central lily pond. In May, the wisteria arbour serves as a stunning backdrop for weddings. The sunken Italian garden bursts with colourful roses and flowering shrubs during the summer months, transitioning to autumnal yellows and oranges. The contemporary kitchen garden is perfect for creating a memorable meal, with original brick walls and 18th-century box-edged beds adding to the attractive ambiance. The apple pergola and golden laburnum walk offer romantic settings for wedding photographs, while the front of the house is floodlit after dark, extending the enjoyment of the estate. Yarlington House works closely with leading marquee hire company Abbas Marquees to offer outdoor celebration options.
Constructed in 1782, Yarlington House was the first house to be built in its area. Passing by on his way from Weymouth to Longleat, King George III is said to have exclaimed, "Hah! Hah! a bold man, a bold man, to build a house there." Today, lush trees and a mature garden envelope the estate, making it a hidden gem for those seeking a stunning setting for their special day.
