A grand country house in its own estate, on the North Somerset coast.

Clevedon Hall is a Victorian Mansion between Portishead and Weston Supermare, within walking distance of the sea. It makes the ideal venue for smart, country weddings, special celebrations, or for corporate use.

The house has 25 en-suite bedrooms, and sleeps up to 50 guests. Some of the bedrooms have additional dressing-rooms and sitting-rooms, and there’s an elevator to access both the second and third floors.

Downstairs, there are two large rooms in which to hold a dinner or party – the Great Hall, or the Grand Library. The Great Hall is at the heart of the house, and is double-height, with large, open fireplaces and balustraded balconies above. The Grand Library is mostly used for dining, it can seat up to 80.

As well as the larger rooms, there are some more intimate spaces, including the Bar, Snug and Oak Room. There’s also the Conrad Finzel Room, and the Dame Rosa Burden Room, both of which may have been the Morning Room and Drawing Room originally. Leading from the Grand Library is the Orangery, which in turn leads down into the gardens.

The kitchens are at the back of the house, and manned by a professional catering team.

The house sits within gardens laid to lawn, with both a courtyard fountain, and a lake (complete with a heron called Harold) . There’s also a gazebo, licensed to hold weddings.

The sea is within walking distance, as is the village of Clevedon, and the Clevedon Pier, which poet Sir John Betjeman declared ‘the most beautiful pier in England’.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“Hard to choose with this house, between the Grand Library, or the Great Hall – although the Great Hall might just pip it, on account of its grandeur. It really is a splendid room, up to a wedding ceremony, a dinner, or a dance.”

About the Location

Clevedon Hall is on the North coast of Somerset, not far from Bristol or Bath, and just off the M5. The nearest train station is Yatton (about 10 minutes’ taxi drive).

Weddings

Clevedon Hall was designed with large, private events in mind, and most of the rooms hold a civil ceremony license, as does the outside gazebo. There is a team on site to help you organise every aspect of your day, and there’s also an on-site catering team, who will work withyou in developing menus.

Corporate Use

Clevedon offers a great standard of corporate entertaining, including its 25 en-suite bedrooms.

A year ago today, Clevedon Hall took centre stage as our venue for starting life's new adventures. When searching for our wedding venue, we knew we wanted an all-in-one place considering most of our friends and family would be travelling. After attending our first wedding fayre, we were in awe and loved what this venue had to offer. We knew instantly this was the location for our wedding day. Throughout the process we had the pleasure of working with Leonora and Simon, to plan, what was in our opinion, the most perfect day. They were always prompt in responding to our enquiries, gave us checklists and deadlines to keep on top of tasks, provided excellent recommendations for suppliers and vendors and their team did an amazing job of setting up the ceremony and reception spaces with our decorations. Our family and friends still rave about the beautiful location and the delicious food every time we see them! We couldn't have been more happy with our special day and we owe a lot of that to Clevedon Hall. Thank you x Lauren & Owen Beresford 15th July 2017

I got married here on the 7th of April and fell in love with the venue when I first went and viewed it. The staff are amazing and so friendly. Through planning the wedding we was seen and spoke to by ellie, who was amazing at getting back to us on emails and showing us around the venue. On the day sola was looking after us. I can’t describe how amazing she was and so friendly. All the staff on the day was amazing and so friendly they all made the day go so smoothly. Thank you.

We've always loved Clevedon Hall as a venue and for it's location but when we found out we could get married there we had to go book a viewing. My husband and I left Clevedon Hall the day of our viewing and decided there and then we had to book despite being the first venue we looked at. We don't think you could ask for a more stunning venue. Throughout the process of organising our wedding the team at Clevedon Hall were brilliant. They made every part of the process easy and nothing was too big an ask for them to achieve. Simon looked after us and made sure every detail we wanted in our wedding, down to a gluten free peroni was catered for. They really did put our wishes first, even if it meant it was not part of their usual request. At our drop off meeting we met with Sola who put us at ease and told us she would take care of everything, including the weather. She didn't disappoint and organised the whole day for us including the sun to come out for our photos. Myself, my mum and bridesmaids stayed in the cottage the night before the wedding which was a great decision. We had such a relaxing evening and it was a great start to the wedding so would recommend that to all brides. Every member of the team were absolutely brilliant. We felt so welcomed and like every person was there for us and to make our dream wedding come true. Clevedon Hall have got hospitality and customer service perfected and we couldn't have wished for nicer people to helping us on our special day. We had the best day our lives, and the team at Clevedon Hall helped make that possible. Our guests loved the day as well, commenting on how beautiful the venue and grounds were, to enjoying the gorgeous food and wine. Everyone that stayed over were impressed with the beautifully decorated bedrooms. My parents had one of the suites and my dad could not get over how big the room was, and that it had an adjoining room too. The toilets in the bedrooms were also a talking point for our guests. Thank you so much for making out day so memorable and perfect. David and Nakita

I had my wedding here 4-6 April and i have no words. From the moment I stepped through the door, the staff took over and took care of me and all of my guests with patience, kindness and utmost professionalism. All of my stress just melted away and I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding. It should be noted that I was planning everything from Hong Kong and could only come to the venue once or twice in the 18 months of my engagement. They made everything so easy and lovely. Even with last minute changes (literally the day before). Everyone who stayed there was equally blown away by the staff and the venue. I could not have asked for a better place to be married, for better coordinators and better suggestions of vendors. It was really so amazing. I 200% recommend Clevedon Hall to any bride and groom looking for a venue.

What an amazing venue. We new this was the place to celebrate our special day as soon as we saw it. We were very lucky to get one of the last remaining Saturdays available in March 2018 and were so pleased it lived up to our expectations. The planning and lead up to the day was a pleasure and not stressful at all, thanks to Simon who made it so easy for us. Verity, James and all the staff were fabulous on the day and made everything run so smoothly. Paul and I and the guests thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from start to finish. What a fantastic celebration at a fantastic place.

Wow I can not fault this venue at all. Attended close friends wedding on 29th September and everything went smoothly. The bride and groom could relax and enjoy the day. Rooms are just out of this world and every bit a credit to its historic building as is the grounds. Food is out of this world and I was not at all hungry in between the day and evening in fact I only managed a little food in the evening. I hope to return one day

Got married here on 9th June - absolutely amazing from start to finish. Staff were exceptional, and Jess made the day run so smoothly. She was also fab at helping with my morning nerves! The food was exceptional, and all our guests loved it. We were the first people to use the cottage. What a great idea it is - decorated to top spec, it's perfect to chill out in the night before the wedding. Following our big day, we've had one of our guests book the venue for their wedding, and my uncle book it for his companies Xmas party - think that in itself shows how amazing it is.

It is a very posh hotel with an old style feeling about the place. It still has the latest gadgets e.g. smart tvs and wifi. The staff are very kind and polite. I believe it is more of a place that holds e.g. weddings, business conferences

We got married at clevedon hall in December last year & the day could not have been more perfect. The lead up to our day was very well organised thanks to Leonora & her team. Unfortunately, there were a couple of hiccups with some of our other suppliers on the day but Sola & the rest of the staff at Clevedon Hall took control & sorted the situation for us. Also, the food on the day was absolutely fantastic, we still get compliments to this day. We cannot thank you all enough, we had the best day & would highly recommend Clevedon Hall.

Thanks to lovely staff at Clevedon Hall for looking after us on Friday 5th May. Spill The Whisky Ceilidh Band performed a great evening of entertainment for a Wedding and the very thoughtful chef whipped up some gluten free batter at very short notice, so our drummer could join in the supper. That is real attention to detail on a busy night. Look forward to working with you again soon

On 22/04/17 we were lucky enough to hold our wedding reception at Clevedon Hall. The whole experience from start to finish was truly exceptional. As soon as we walked into Clevedon Hall as a possible venue, we felt completely at ease and just knew this was 'the place!' Every single member of the team could not do enough to help us before, during and after the wedding. We felt completely looked after and throughly spoiled by the attentiveness and attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble. On the actual day a special mention must go to our co-ordinator Jess as she was superb! Very calm with the bride helping with some minor last minute dress issues, taking on wedding photographer duties before leaving for the church and just generally bringing an air of calm to the whole day. Nothing was too much trouble for ANY of the staff and they always seemed to be just in the right place at the right time. The food was fabulous and we had so many comments from our guests with the general consensus being 'the best wedding food they have ever had'. The grounds are stunning and we were blessed with a day of sunshine which just highlighted the true beauty of the grounds and building, however on a grey day it all still looks stunning. The rooms are something else too, luxurious, modern and comfortable with the best bathrooms we have ever seen. We really cannot recommend Clevedon Hall enough to anyone. Every single expectation of ours was exceeded beyond anything we could have imagined and that is all down to the special people and place of Clevedon Hall.

We recently got married at Clevedon Hall March 2017 and had the most amazing day of our life. It is a magnificent building which has been lovingly restored and thoughtfully upgraded ensuring quality and character remain the main focus of the building.I think sumptuous elegance is the best way to describe this venue. I couldn't fault the communication prior to our big day and the efficiency of Jessica on the day. The canapés and afternoon tea were perfect for what we wanted and the hog roast in the evening was a big hit. Thank you all for your efforts and breakfast the following morning in the rosa burden room was beautifully laid out. I wish I could do it all again I can't recommend this place highly enough.

My husband and I got married a couple of weeks ago and had the best day possible! All of our guests are still on a wedding come down saying that they had the most amazing day! Jess made everything run so smoothly and put us completely at ease. The venue itself is truly stunning. The weather was awful on our day and all photos had to be taken indoors, but that really didn't matter as the venue interior was a perfect back drop!

I'm a little confused on the status of Clevedon Hall - I think it's mainly a wedding venue that operates as a hotel when room occupancy / wedding bookings are lower... We stayed for one night, and cannot fault the buildings, surroundings or staff. Exceptional. We were slightly surprised that some of the more normal hotel facilities such as a bar were not available. Not a major problem - and links into not being sure whether it's a wedding venue or a hotel... The breakfast was beautiful and not to be missed. Breakfast ending at 9.30AM and checkout at 10:30AM did feel slightly early at the weekend. Luckily we were not fighting a hangover...

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Clevedon Hall in October last year and we honestly can't praise this venue highly enough. If I could give it 7 stars I would! The experience was pure luxury from start to finish. Emily the wedding planner, was fantastic from the start, answering all of my questions before we booked the venue and was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. I just felt immediately at ease talking to her and knew that we would be in very good hands. That was a sign of things to come as ALL the staff were wonderful and went out of their way to accommodate our every whim and really made us feel at home there! There was always a friendly voice at the end of the phone if we had another question to ask. Nothing was too much trouble for them. All of our guests said the same thing on the day, which made for very happy and wonderful day! Clevedon Hall really is an exemplary wedding venue. The standard and quality of everything from the luxuriously decorated bedrooms (and bathrooms with cast iron baths and heated loo seats!) to the impeccably kept gardens, which looked stunning in all the photos, is outstanding. The food was also superb. We were able to speak directly to the chef in our catering meeting, so really felt that the menu was exactly what we wanted, right down from the canapes to the evening snack! We were even able to offer our guests a choice of fish, meat or vegetarian for a small supplementary charge. Plus all their ingredients are locally and ethically sourced which was another big tick for both of us! Verity, the master of ceremonies on the day was just fantastic and even when things ran behind a little (due to photos on the pier taking longer than expected!), she very kindly delayed the meal for us without us even needing to ask, giving us enough time to have some photos taken in the gardens as well. She did a superb job on the day, ensuring that everything ran seamlessly, which just shows her professionalism and experience. We chose the 'Elegant package', so many of us stayed overnight at the venue, which included a cooked breakfast the next day, giving everyone the chance to catch up from the night before and concluded with a sunny stroll to Clevedon Pier, just ended our weekend perfectly! I really can't imangine how any other venue could better the experience that we had. The staff at Clevedon Hall really do think of everything. We just feel so lucky to have found this venue. A truly beautiful place, which is excellent value for what you get and with staff who will go out of their way to make your wedding day perfect! Thank you so much to all at Clevedon Hall, it was really was a weekend we will never forget!

We held our wedding at Clevedon Hall in October 2016 and we really could not have chosen a better venue. The building itself is beautiful both inside and out and we got some lovely photographs in the grounds. All our guests commented on the great venue and everyone who stayed loved their bedrooms. The team at Clevedon Hall are fantastic - every single staff member that we had contact with both during the planning and on the day was friendly and helpful. We would especially like to thank Leonora for all her help in the run up to the wedding and Sola who did an exceptional job running everything on the day. We were told numerous times by guests how impressed they were with all the staff and how well run the day was. Finally, we have to mention the wonderful food! Our meal was delicious and the portion sizes were just right. Thank you so much to everyone at Clevedon Hall for helping us have an amazing day!

Throughout the whole process the staff have been exceptional, nothing has ever been to much and they go out of their way to make sure that your day is perfect. Emily and Leonora, thank you so much for helping us organise our special day you have been fantastic. Sola, what can we say, you made our day run smoothly and had everything organised to a T! I couldn't have asked for anymore! The food was delicious, the best wedding food I have ever had. Having the option to design our own menu was important to us and you created our vision perfectly. The guests couldn't stop talking about the quality of the service and food! Clevedon Hall itself is stunning! The rooms inside the building are stunning, newly furnished the rooms a vibrant and elegant, the bedrooms are something else, it felt like I was a princess in my own castle! The grounds are beautiful, you could not ask for a better setting for photographs and videos, they are extremely well looked after by the gardeners. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a venue.

We had our wedding here two days ago and what a special day it was. The whole process from the moment we booked it has been a pleasure. The day was truly magical and with the attention to detail you have captured every moment that we have been dreaming about for the last 16 months. We couldn't have picked a better venue for us it was perfect, the grounds house and rooms are stunning but it is you guys that make it. The service throughout the day was faultless and we were made to feel very welcomed all day long. Emily you did an amazing job throughout the planning and put an answer to our every last question. Ellie you went above and beyond very friendly and nothing was too much hassle when whenever we spoke to you. Verity and the team helping set up, hands down to all of you. You spent the time to go through everything in the drop off meeting and you truly captured everything we asked for. Thankyou all for our special day and all the fond memories that we have created here. Five stars really doesn't give you the credit that you deserve. With many thanks and much love Ben Chapman-Gale

How do I even begin writing this review. What an amazing wedding venue. The building, grounds and rooms are all fantastic, made our day that bit more special having it there. Now where do I begin with staff, what a brilliant team they have. You could not ask for more professional, caring wonderful people as they have working there. Big thank you to Emily, verity and Ellie to name but a few without them our day would not have ran so smoothly. Ever detail was done with the best care and quality, all the room prep was done brilliantly, they couldn't do enough to help us. Big credit to the chef and kitchen staff the food was amazing, people were talking about the amazing food all day. Thank you so much in making our special day really sparkle and be something that people talk about for years to come. From the bottoms of our hearts thank u so much. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Wow! That was my thought when I first walked through the door. Absolute hidden gem on the Clevedon sea front, a perfect location for a wedding venue. The use of so many spectacular rooms on our special day just made it so special, plus having all of my family staying overnight (half of which live a long distance away in Leicester and Derby). As passionate wildlife and nature enthusiasts the venue fitted perfectly with our woodland and nature theme, with Harold the heron, the resident Roe deer, the beautiful lake and all of the stunning daffodils. All the rooms are beautifully decorated with nature themes and named after British birds of prey. The staff were passionate, professional and organised and really did come together on the day to do a splendid job, particular thanks to Solar on the day, who put us all at ease when the nerves kicked in. After hand making all of our decorations, I was nervous to see what the venue would look like with all of my bits and bobs. I was completely overwhelmed with what the staff had done. It looked beautiful, they had used every last decoration and even made more decorations out of my left over craft resources. Above and beyond! The food was also very tasty!! So this is a thank you from Mr and Mrs Gibbs x
