Tie the Knot at backwell


We are licensed for a civil ceremony of up to 60 people indoors or an unlimited number of guests on the front steps of the house.

Whether you're going for something more traditional or a handfasting out in Backwell's beautiful grounds, we'll help you find the perfect spot for your ceremony.

Our conjoined dining rooms can accommodate up to 60 people seated for the wedding banquet, or we can do tipis for bigger parties of up to 200 people. We offer seasonal in-house catering that can be tailored to your request.

We're lucky to be surrounded by Somerset farmland, so all the produce we use in our breakfasts is organic and locally-sourced – from meat to veggies to herbs. We also grow our own vegetables and herbs - that's as fresh as they come!


We have nine luxury double bedrooms for the bridal party, all sumptuously decorated with a soulful spirit. The house also has an ornamental walled gardens, as well as in room massages and treatments being available, so it's a lovely place to relax for a few days before or after your wedding day.


Our unique ground-floor bar is a spectacular location for a sparkling champagne reception or late-night party. To a soundtrack of tinkling keys, celebrate with bubbles, or prop your elbows on the bar for a late-night scotch on the rocks. We have four indoor rooms for the party, and larger receptions can be hosted in tipis on the lawn.
