The Great Hall is regularly used for civil ceremonies and can seat up to 100 guests. It has a grand and luxurious feel and there is a good flexibility on room configuration, making it easier to ensure that your ceremony is unique to you. The staircase leads down to the Great Hall, making it the perfect entrance for a bride or groom.

The Victorian Ballroom
The Victorian Ballroom is most usually used for the Wedding Breakfast and can seat up to 100 guests. It boasts high ceilings, beautiful chandeliers and a picturesque fireplace and, is a bit of a dream for photographers due to the amount of natural light!
The beautiful gazebo is situated between Crowcombe Court and the Quantock Hills. This really is the perfect place for your outside ceremony
The Vaulted Undercroft
The Vaulted Undercroft at Crowcombe Court is often described by guests as ‘your own private nightclub’. Bands or DJs are able to set up in this unique location ahead of the celebrations upstairs. Adjacent to the party room is The Quantock Bar and this is fully stocked with a good range of beers, ciders, wines and spirits. It is also usually where the evening buffet is served.
The Honeymoon Suite
This gorgeous bedroom includes a super-king 4 poster bed, relaxing sofa, and luxurious bathroom and is available for newlyweds on their wedding night as part of their wedding package. I love the two large windows as it provides some beautiful light. It is also a great alternative to the Getting Ready room and is the place where I get up high to take the overhead group guest photograph from!
The Getting Ready Room
One of the newer locations at Crowcombe Court, this is the second of the two getting ready rooms. It is up a few flights of stairs, whilst the first getting ready room is down in the basement of the building – meaning neither side runs the risk of glimpsing each other before the ceremony! In contrast to the soft light tones of the downstairs room, the gallery consists of wooden floors, brown leather sofas and a pool table.

Denis Turner, Crowcombe Court’s talented Head Chef together with his accomplished team create the most wonderful food for your wedding. I am well-placed to confirm this thanks to the couple’s who kindly provide me with a suppliers meal!
