Full Description
  • Minterne caps the number of weddings it hosts to 6 a year to assure that exclusivity is maintained. 27 acres of woodland garden form a backdrop for a photographers paradise with lakes, streams, cascades and bridges a major feature. We can cater for up to 80 guests in the house, or for larger numbers a marquee can be sited in the field opposite the house. There are 4 ensuites, all decorated in an individual style.
  • Personal Message from the Manager
    Name of Wedding Contact: Mrs Maureen Panchen
    Minterne can promise you the day of your dreams. This stunning manor house nestles in the Cerne Valley with a lake and water features providing a stunning backdrop. Drinks on the East Terrace overlooking the lake is just one of several options; a house for all seasons, Minterne is an equally romantic setting for a winter wedding with log fires in the Drawing Room, Trafalgar Hall and Garden Room.
