Just outside Bristol is the city's little-known gem: Backwell House, a beautifully-refurbished Georgian country house complete with curiosities galore. We have a licence for civil ceremonies of up to 60 people in the house or an unlimited number on the front steps, and we welcome same sex couples.
This 19th century country house and wedding venue is oozing with Georgian charm, boasting a magnificent interior and nestled in breath-taking surroundings. It's hard to believe that you’re only a few miles from Bristol city centre; the tranquil surroundings and beautiful rural landscapes give you the sense of being a world away from everyday life. With an ornamental walled garden and acres of gorgeous woodland, you'll be sure to lose a bit of your heart to Backwell House!
Backwell House boasts nine luxury ensuite bedrooms, sleeping up to 18, all uniquely furnished with vintage treasures. The house’s crowning jewel is the stunning Cider Barrel Bar room, perfect for a champagne reception. There is also a breakfast room, lounge and a cinema room for the cosy Sunday slumber party. With its stylish, quirky interiors and beautiful surroundings, Backwell House is the destination-du-jour for the most unique of weddings.
