Situated right in the heart of Somerset in between Taunton and Chard, this delightful 19th-century corn mill set in its picturesque grounds offers an idyllic rural location for exceptional wedding ceremonies and receptions.

As Hornsbury Mill holds a civil wedding ceremony licence, couples are able to stage their entire celebration at the venue, and should your guests wish to stay over, there's a choice of 9 luxurious bedrooms, as well as a gorgeous complimentary bridal suite!

This highly-reputed venue offers a range of flexible packages suitable for weddings of all sizes and most budgets, and each couple will receive the friendly assistance of an experienced in-house coordinator to help ensure the perfect day they have dreamt of and always fondly imagined.


Hornsbury Mill was constructed from local flint and fine honey-coloured Ham stone, and although recently extensively restored, has retained many of its original features. The fantastic working watermill, for example, makes a stunning backdrop for unique wedding photographs, as does the mill's four acres of picturesque parkland, now populated with free-roaming peacocks.

Two separate locations are currently licensed to host civil marriage and partnership ceremonies: the romantic, candlelit, atmospheric Corn Loft, and the idyllic lakeside Gazebo with stunning views over the landscaped gardens. Both the Gazebo and the Corn Loft have brilliant PA systems through which background music can be played, or you could hire live musicians to play you up the aisle.

Included in the cost of a wedding ceremony is exclusive use of the Lakeside Suite or Wheelroom for your wedding breakfast, the Lakeside Suite for an evening reception celebration, and a complimentary bridal suite.

Self-contained with its own bar and beautiful lakeside terrace with panoramic garden views, The Lakeside Suite can seat up to 80 guests for a wedding breakfast, with an additional 40 in an adjoining marquee, and up to 200 for an evening reception with a live band and/or a DJ.

Featuring a working watermill, The Wheelroom can seat up to 40 guests for a slightly more compact wedding breakfast, and to host even more intimate celebrations, the cosy Coachroom is perfect.

After the evening party, your nearest and dearest can stay over in one of Hornsbury Mill's nine luxurious bedrooms, without having to worry about the long drive home!

Meet with Hornsbury Mill's experienced wedding coordinator well before the big day to discuss your exact wishes and requirements, and a bespoke package can then be created especially for you.


Hornsbury Mill's outstanding in-house caterers create exceptional cuisine, all to the highest standards. Organic, fresh produce is locally sourced from nearby suppliers, the dishes can be adjusted to meet any dietary requirements, and a bespoke menu to meet your exact needs and budget can readily be created on request.

    6 years ago we had the perfect wedding here. Just popped back for afternoon tea to celebrate our anniversary and it was amazing. Delicious food in a stunningly beautiful setting. I wish we didn't live 4 hours away - we'd come every week if we could!
