About Sparkford Hall
Sparkford Hall is a Georgian mansion in Somerset. It’s suitable for parties of friends or family, reunions, special celebrations and weddings. It also works well for corporate and business use, or retreats.
The main house sleeps 26 in 11 bedrooms (6 of which are en-suite). The Gardners Cottage sleeps a further 8. In total, there are six separate bathrooms shared by nine bedrooms, two of which are singles/bunk-style, and perfect for children. Some beds can be made up as twins or doubles.
The reception rooms in the house are all big, and include the Salon (which is acts as a living and dining space), a library and kitchen, with a huge table for breakfast. There is also a basement, in which to create your very own club night, as well as an outdoor swimming pool.
The Hall sits in 23 acres of gardens, parkland and farmland. There are large terraces and lawns – perfect for a marquee off the Salon – and a newly renovated walled kitchen garden, from which fruit and vegetables for the Estate are provided. There are also over 2 acres of orchard to wander in on a summer’s eve, and which produce cider and cider vinegar.
The management team at the house can arrange for accommodation for up to 200 people, in a combination of tents, tipis, and yurts, in the orchard where there are separate facilities for campers. Perfect for wedding guests, or a tiny, clandestine summer festival.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“Perhaps one of the best things about Sparkford Hall is its privacy. The village is quite some distance away, and there are very few neighbours within party-earshot. Anyone wishing to set-to with a whistle and neon tutu, can do so in complete secret.”
About The Location
Sparkford Hall is just off several A roads, between the M5 and M3, just below Glastonbury. The nearest main-line train station is in Castle Cary, and a taxi from the station would take about 20 minutes.
Things To Do
There’s lots to do in the surrounding area – Sparkford is on the very edge of the West Country with all of its attractions – Glastonbury Tor is nearby (and Glastonbury town), as is Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge and Haynes Motor Museum. There is also the ancient hill-fort of Cadbury Castle – where it is said on fine nights you can see horsemen with torches, galloping through the dappled moonlight, protecting King Arthur as he sleeps.
Having a wedding at Sparkford Hall is like having a wedding at your own house. The place is yours to do with what you wish (within some boundaries of course!) and you can create your day exactly as you envisage it. The owners are happy for you to plan everything yourselves as you would if it was your own home. But if you prefer, they can put you in touch with one of their wedding planner partners with great knowledge of local suppliers and can assist you all the way. There is no corkage fee so you can bring all your own alcohol.
Mid-week weddings can be offered (including a two-night stay) for a reasonable price, and suppliers are often cheaper mid-week too.
