Somerley is a privately owned Country Estate located on the Hampshire/Dorset border, just 25 minutes from Bournemouth, 30 minutes from Southampton and 90 minutes from London.
A hidden jewel; not open to the public, Somerley offers that perfect mix of luxury, elegance, style and grandeur - whilst never feeling intimidating or impersonal. The House is home to Lord and Lady Somerton and their family, so comfort and a warm welcome are always at the forefront of every guest’s experience, along with utmost privacy and a meticulous attention to each detail.
The Main House itself, can comfortably accommodate a wedding ceremony for up to 160 guests, a seated wedding breakfast for up to 140 guests and an evening reception for up to 200 guests. Alternatively, the gardens or grounds make the perfect setting for outdoor ceremony followed by a marquee reception for up to 300 guests. The House has 9 large and beautifully appointed bedrooms with spectacular views of the surrounding gardens, woodland and rolling parkland for guests or family groups who wish to stay.
Set in 7,000 acres of glorious Hampshire countryside, Somerley offers couples a venue for almost every style of wedding or celebration. Whether elegant luxury is your heart’s desire or you have dreams of a marquee reception with a more relaxed boho festival vibe, a spot of woodland magic or a touch of country garden chic, the Somerley Weddings Team will give you a friendly welcome and work with you so that every detail of your special day is just perfect and unique to you.
