Detailed Description

Country Life described Hatch House as the "quintessence of perfection." Set in an elevated position with uninterrupted views across the Vale of Wardour Hatch House provides a private and extremely unique location for a wedding. Hatch House, owned by Sir Henry and Lady Rumbold, is a privately owned family home and consists of the remains of a 17th century manor house, the former home of the Hyde family (Anne Hyde was the mother of Queens Anne & Mary). The house was partly burnt down in the 18th century and then bought in the 1840s by the Bennet family, from whom the Rumbolds are descended. The Bennets resurrected the house in 1908, employing the romantic Arts & Crafts architect, Detmar Blow, who had been commissioned to work on several grand houses locally. Armorial gates lead into a lofty lime avenue, which sweeps down to the house and garden and is the perfect entrance for the wedding couple and their guests to arrive at Hatch House. The house’s theatrical facade faces the exquisite 17th century walled Dutch Garden, formed by two tiers of lawn framed by herbaceous borders and incredible views across the countryside. The gardens are encased by gracefully aged stone walls and clipped hedges, which create a series of rooms. There are three licensed areas for weddings and civil ceremonies, in the dining room and hall within the house and in the Pavilion at the centre of the walled garden. Marquees can be erected on the lawns and are particularly popular within the Dutch Garden itself where there is plenty of room for seated receptions followed by dancing and creates a very intimate setting. Lady Rumbold refers to this garden as the "best room in the house." At Hatch House there is the choice to use the venue for the whole ceremony and reception or just reception if a church service is preferred. Whichever you choose your guests will enjoy the celebrations at Hatch House. We look forward to meeting you.
