Situated on the edge of the South Gloucestershire village of Tortworth, surrounded by a curtain of woodland and positioned next to a serene lake, you will find an alluring Victorian manor house.

Besides the Grade II*-listed mansion itself, the Tortworth estate actually contains a number of separately listed items, such as landscaped gardens and a magnificent Orangery. With 30 acres of private parkland to explore, an arboretum of protected and endangered trees and a convenient location just four minutes from junction 17 of the M5, the setting of Tortworth Court as a wedding venue is indeed hard to beat.


The estate of Tortworth has been home to many eminent Dukes, Lords, Knights and Barons over its hundreds of years of history. Records begin as far back as the reign of Edward I (The Hammer of the Scots) in the late 13th century, when the manor was owned by Sir Nicholas Kingston.

After changing hands a number of times, the manor was occupied by the Ducie family for over 300 years, before the current mansion was constructed in 1849.

The fascinating edifice was designed and wrought in the Gothic Tudor style coming into fashion at the time, and following a number of additions and restorations, today resembles something between a substantial country manor house and a castle - thoroughly beautiful both inside and out.



This intricate and fascinating space is the 'talk of the town', and arguably one of the principal selling features of the house. Grade II-listed in itself, it's perfect for hosting civil wedding ceremonies, formal receptions and even evening celebration parties.

Westminster Suite

This contemporary space has stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, a dancefloor, a bar and beautiful views across the grounds. It is also licensed to host civil ceremonies.
