Award-winning barn wedding venue in Somerset with accommodation, Quantock Lakes perfectly blends the old with new. The exclusive-use venue features three barns for your wedding celebrations, each with its own unique character but sharing spectacular views. Just a short stroll away, you will find a beautiful courtyard of barns called "The Wedding Village" including "The Posh Piggery" bridal suite. The most recent barn conversion, "The Granary" is a nine bedroomed, three-storey barn featuring an indoor swimming pool, outside hot tub, a unique barbecue hut set within The Granary Barn grounds and much more. From 2021 there will be additional accommodation available at the old Farmhouse.

Licensed to host ceremonies from 80 to 250 guests and ideal for reception celebrations, here you can gaze at uninterrupted views across the lakes and the nearby Quantock Hills. Imagine toasting marshmallows while sat around the fire pit overlooking the lakes in the expansive grounds. The lakes feature their own pontoon and jetty and the ancient oak tree boasts a large rope swing, ideal for photo opportunities and more! Providing their own team of experienced in-house wedding coordinators to pander to your every wedding whim, you can sit back and relax while they help your day run smoothly.

Facilities

Located in 200 acres of Somerset countryside, this makes the perfect place to hold any kind of wedding, with your choice of barns for your ceremony and an outside ceremony license for the warmer months.

The lake pontoon is licensed for your outside ceremony during the warmer months and available for perfect weather conditions. You really are spoiled for choice at Quantock Lakes and with the arrival of the Granary Barn, you won't want your wedding celebrations to end. Quantock Lakes comes into its own when couples turn the best day of their lives into a two-day celebration and, with accommodation on site - thoughtfully designed and converted by the family owners - sleeping up to 60 guests for two nights, it can be hard to resist.

Rustic Barn

Have your ceremony in the original Rustic Barn, a gorgeous, bright and airy space with the capacity to seat up to 110 guests, and even has its own log burner. This is the original feature of the venue and this is where all of the magic started thirteen years ago when the family converted the barn from the remains of an old wagon repair shop into what it is today. Still with the original floor and much of the original stone walls and oak beams, the barn is bursting with character and charm.

Ceremony capacity - 110 guests

Quantock Barn

As one of two choices for your ceremony or main wedding reception, this purpose built, modern barn is larger than the Rustic Barn and features its own walk-in inglenook fireplace, and is able to seat up to 250 for a ceremony. The breathtaking handcrafted oak bar complements the jaw-dropping oak beams that are strung with fairytale lights. The barn boasts stunning views across the lakes where you can watch the sun set and light the fire pit after your first dance to toast marshmallows under the stars.

Ceremony capacity - 250 guests
Evening reception capacity - 500 guests

Meadow Barn

The Meadow Barm is the perfect eating space for your wedding breakfast. This purpose-built barn is bursting with elegance and sophistication with beautiful drapes hung to perfection from tall ceilings, four twinkling chandeliers and large bifold doors boasting panoramic views across the lakes and famous Quantock Hills.

Reception capacity - 250 guests

The Grounds

The venue's lovely grounds feature a picture perfect lake pontoon with light-up jetty, an ancient oak tree complete with swing, and an outside fire pit that can be lit after your first dance and maintained throughout the evening. Quantock Lakes can also give you a glass Kilner jar full of marshmallows to toast under the moonlight! And new for the 2019 wedding season, the family owners have thought of every detail by introducing outside feature lighting so the magic of being outdoors can continue long into the evening.

Catering

An in-house catering team is available at Quantock Lakes, saving you all the stress of finding one; and with a vast range of food to choose from (from barbecue feasts to a fabulous three-course meal with canapés for your wedding breakfast to traditional hog roasts and quirky nachos stations for the evening) you're bound to find something that suits your wedding! There is even a bespoke menu option available.

Accommodation

Besides the lovely on-site "Posh Piggery" bridal suite, Quantock Lakes are featuring luxury guest accommodation located just a two-minute walk from the venue. These perfectly restored barn conversions include:

  • The Piggery
  • The Wagon House
  • The Stables
  • The Granary
  • Coming soon for 2021 - The Farmhouse

The accommodation, that Quantock Lakes calls "The Wedding Village", features BBQ areas and a games room, and the amazing Wagon House Barn includes an outside hot tub, perfect for staying the night before the big day. The Granary Barn is the most recent barn conversion that Quantock Lakes has to offer, which is also the most spectacular, boasting an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor hot tub and picture perfect barbecue hut located within the Granary grounds.

The Granary is a three-storey, nine bedroom super luxury barn conversion that you quite simply will never want to leave. Like with all of the barns at Quantock Lakes, the family owners have thoughtfully designed and built the conversions with over thirteen years' experience in the wedding business.

Reviews

  • Philip and Wendy Hotton

    Where do we begin when conveying how amazing Quantock Lakes was as our wedding venue? From the very moment we first met Laura to view the venue and accommodation, we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. The team there are absolutely fantastic and so friendly. They pay unbelievable attention to even the smallest details to make sure your wedding is perfect so you can relax and enjoy your special day with your guests. Everyone who was there kept telling us how beautiful Quantock Lakes is, how great the food is, how comfortable the accommodation is and how it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Wendy and I can never thank you all enough, especially Laura, Naomi, Nadine and Sarah, for helping us have the perfect wedding.

  • Jaymee and Matt Smyth

    We found this amazing venue two years ago. We met with the lovely Laura and secured our date! Naomi and Sarah are exceptional wedding planners/co-ordinators; nothing was too much trouble. We had Sarah on our special day and she made it run perfectly! The venue, the food, the three different rooms and the staff made our day the absolute best! The comments we have had about the venue are amazing! The accommodation for the weekend was again out of this world!
    Quantock Lakes team, you are truly amazing and thank you for making our day one we will not ever forget! Absolutely five stars! We are so sad it's over but so glad we found such a unique and stunning venue!

  • Joe Charles

    We had our wedding at Quantock Lakes at the end of August and the day was absolutely perfect. The venue is incredible and the planning team were all brilliant. Our guests all absolutely loved it, especially the food! I would definitely recommend!

  • Charlotte and Paul

    Paul and I wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you for all your support in helping make our wedding dreams come true! We can't quite believe we've been married just a little over three months now and we already wish we could relive the day; it truly was incredible!

    Thank you to all there but a special shout out to Sarah, Naomi and Laura for helping us right from the beginning and making the booking process so enjoyable. From the tastings, wedding planning meetings and the days leading up to the wedding itself, you guys really mastered delivering amazing service in the wedding industry!

    The whole weekend was incredible; every one of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue and the village were. You really have thought of every single detail and the whole weekend felt like one big exciting holiday with a big party in the middle for everyone. The whole day ran effortlessly. Thank you so much Sarah - your attention to detail was incredible. The hospitality and food were amazing and our guests said it's the best food they've had a wedding (the evening food of nachos and pizza were particularly raved about). We loved that we could create our own menu!

    Honestly, we wish we could do it all again and we hope we can have a little reunion in the years to come and hopefully stay in the Granary Barn for the weekend, which again is just amazing. Thank you so much for making everything perfect for us, always being there to answer our messages and just make the day truly incredible!

    Thanks, Charlotte and Paul

  • Sam and Becki

    Thank you so much for making our dreams a reality! You were all so amazing and we couldn't fault a thing. So many guests have commented on how smoothly and beautiful the day was run. Thank you. Love, Sam and Becki

  • Sarah Lane, Mother of the Groom

    From start to finish, the team at Quantock Lakes have been so friendly, helpful and professional. I'd thoroughly recommend this beautiful wedding venue to anyone - one of our guests was so impressed she's even told her newly engaged sister about it.
    A special thank you to Nadine and Naomi for answering all our questions no matter the time of day (and often night) in the run up, and for genuinely caring about our day. The entire team made it a seamless, stress free and special experience. We had the best day ever!

  • Lindsey and Damien

    Thank you so much. We genuinely could not be any happier with the wedding weekend - everything was absolutely perfect and we feel incredibly lucky to have had such an amazing venue, great weather and wonderful guests. We have been so spoilt we are a bit stunned by it all!

    We have had a sneaky peak at a few of our wedding photos which are amazing! One of the lake at sunset in particular!

    We are so grateful for all of your help and advice on the run up to the day. Thank you for all of your hard work on our wedding day - you and the team were fantastic and we have had so much lovely feedback from our guests who are very impressed with Quantock Lakes. The venue and accommodation were stunning and we cannot thank you enough for providing us with such an amazing wedding.

  • The Norgate's

    Having recently spent the most magical day at Quantock Lakes I can't thank Naomi, Laura and all the team enough.
    From the moment we met Laura on a rainy day in January, complete with champagne and canapés, we knew this was the wedding venue for us! Nothing was too much trouble and the girls strived to create the perfect day for us - which we had!

    Not only is the venue stunning, the accommodation is to die for. As we had travelled from London, we wanted a venue where we could stretch the celebrations over the course of the weekend. At Quantock Lakes we were able to do this. Pool party the night before, wedding and then a huge BBQ for all our friends and family the next day.

    The memories we have made will last a life time.

    If you are thinking about having your wedding here, you must! It was simply stunning. All our friends and family complimented us on such a wonderful and unforgettable day. We can't wait to return for our 10 year anniversary bash!
    Naomi, you're family have created something so special and we feel so privileged to have had our day at Quantock Lakes.

    Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

  • Mr and Mrs Witchell

    We just wanted to say thank you for everything that you did for us on the lead up to the wedding and the actual day.
    We had the most amazing time and can't thank you enough for how smoothly the day went, you attend to our ever need.
    The venue is perfect in every way and we are so glad we had the most perfect day in the most perfect venue.

    The feedback we have had from family and friends is they had an amazing day and the venue was in a great location.
    Our accommodation was first class, and breakfast was amazing!

    We can't thank you enough, we are a very happy husband and wife and it's all down to you!

  • Pete & Hannah Rose

    We wanted to take this opportunity to write to thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding day the best day of our lives.

    We loved the venue from the first time we saw it, but your personal approved, attention to detail and knowledge of local 'weddingy people' made it all we could have hoped for.

  • Scott & Amy

    We would like to say a big thank you to you for everything. Quantock Lakes is beautiful but you make it amazing and that extra bit special. Leading up to the event you were there throughout and on the day nothing was too much trouble. A lot of guests commented on how brilliant our Events Manager was. Thank you so much.

  • Hillary Hagen

    I want to thank you warmly for the success of Robert and Laura’s wedding reception and party on Saturday. All the guests had a wonderful time; the staff were very discreet but efficient; the food, excellent, the venue very pretty and the band, a great hit! Well done for organising it all so marvellously. I would have no hesitation in recommending others to come to Quantock Lakes for their function.
