Welcome to all you lovely romantics, following the impact of Covid, we are thrilled to have had a very very busy eighteen months.  It has been just wonderful to welcome our couples back to the Estate and play a part in their most special of days.  Each and every occasion has been special and individual, although the one thing always in common is the love shared between the couple and between them and their guests.  Our job really is the best and we love it when the House is full of happiness.

We always like to keep busy and continue to make improvements and keep the house dressed and looking at its best.  We have two more gorgeous bedrooms in the main house, now taking us to a total of 11 luxury rooms and a further 20 at the Old Stables.  We’ve also been continuing the work on the roof and reinstating some of the old Victorian heating systems (they really were amazing engineers).  We’ve also introduced a new room, which was previously kept by the family, ‘The Billiard Room’.  This is located in the heart of the House and opposite the bar, the perfect location for your evening dancing.  There are also lots of other lovely new touches throughout the House.  We know you will be as excited as we are, to see what we have been up to.

Our Wedding Open House, is a regular date in the calendar, and offers the perfect opportunity for those that have already booked and those that are still searching for the perfect venue to come and explore.  Our fabulous suppliers will dress the house for a wedding, giving you lots of ideas as to how your special day at Grittleton House could also look.  You will also be able to sample some delicious canapés and enjoy a glass of fizz.  If you would like to come and visit, please book your free tickets HERE 

We very much look forward to welcoming you.

Best wishes

Matthew & Vanessa Shipp & The Grittleton House Team

Testimonial August 2022

“What can we say about Grittleton House…phenomenal! We got married almost two weeks ago and we have been wishing to do it all over again ever since. We can’t praise Emma, Vanessa, Ben and the rest of the team enough, they made our day incredible from start to finish. Anything we needed, they were on it. From setting everything up, checking our guests in, making sure we always had a drink in our hand, to telling me to think about boring shopping lists to calm my nerves as I walked to the ceremony! The planning process wouldn’t have been the same without Emma, no question was silly or too much trouble, she couldn’t have done anything more for us. The house and grounds itself are just absolutely stunning, we have had no end of comments from our guests about how beautiful everything was. The food and drinks were outstanding, the coordination, the service, the gorgeous rooms, the list goes on and on. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. R & L”
