Set at the foot of the Mendip Hills close to both Bristol and Bath, with the most breathtaking views across Blagdon Lake and the Chew Valley, Coombe Lodge is a truly beautiful venue in which to celebrate your momentous occasion. With the house and the grounds always exclusive to brides and grooms and their guests, the venue has earned an outstanding reputation for hosting all kinds of special events over the last eight years.
Coombe Lodge’s philosophy is simple – they want you and your guests to have an amazing day, beyond comparison with any other. From your very first consultation, the coordinators are dedicated to helping you plan every moment, with a warm, welcoming and engaging approach. Add to this an in-house team of expert chefs who revel in creating gorgeous cuisine with local produce. Explore the magnificent and romantic building for yourselves, which so perfectly blends history with luxurious styling, and wander through the charming gardens that will complete such a splendid backdrop for your special day.
Designed by the architect Sir George Oatley, creator of many distinguished buildings in and around Bristol, Coombe Lodge was originally built between 1928 and 1932, and became home to the notable Wills family for the next 30 years. Since then the house has been carefully restored into a gorgeous contemporary venue, whilst still remaining faithful to its elegance of old.
Whether you have 50 or 160 guests, Coombe Lodge presents a great choice of locations in which to hold your civil ceremony.
The Billiard Room
The quaint Billiard Room is fully licensed for civil marriages, and can easily hold 90 seated guests.
Civil Ceremony Capacity - 90 Guests
If you would prefer an outdoor wedding, with the capability to seat many guests, their outside ceremony option under the charming veranda is perfect for summery ceremonies.
Civil Ceremony Capacity - 160 Guests
The Music Room
Ideal for larger gatherings, your entire day, from ceremony to evening party, can be celebrated in the magnificent Music Room.
Civil Ceremony Capacity - 160 Guests
Wedding Breakfast Capacity - 160 Guests

The care and imagination taken to prepare Coombe Lodge's menus is paramount - the credit for this lies with their team of skilled chefs who take delight in creating a tempting selection of delicious menus with mouth-watering dishes. After your ceremony is over, enjoy some celebratory drinks and a delicious selection of canapés, choosing from an array of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Alternatively, how about a garden party styled miniature afternoon tea to delight your guests?
A unique idea for the wedding breakfast is the Valencienne Menu, in which each course will be served as a banquet to the table on platters, allowing your guests to help themselves to dishes you have chosen. Some of the platters include Italian antipasti, Somerset platters, Spanish tapas nibbles or Persian delicacies, and this can be an ideal choice if you do not want to commit to just one dish for your guests. Alternatively, you could opt for a traditional wedding breakfast using either the Mechlin or Reticella menu. The chefs also offer equally delectable buffet options, always welcome at the evening party.
Once you have tired from all the dancing, you won't have to go too far to rest your head! Coombe Lodge features 12 luxurious ensuite rooms, ideal for your closest friends and family to stay overnight. The Garden House located in the idyllic grounds of Coombe Lodge can offer your guests a further 10 bedrooms. There is certainly further accommodation of all types and styles available nearby for more guests.

We got married here on Saturday and it was absolutely perfect, in fact more than we ever could of dreamed of! Davy and his team worked tirelessly to ensure that the day ran perfectly and that we and all of our guests were catered for to the highest standard (and often beyond!). The venue was decorated beautifully with attention to detail in even the smallest of areas, Coombe Lodge is an absolute dream come true for any bride and groom and we will cherish the memories made here forever x
