Wedding Venue in Somerset

The charming Oakhouse Hotel and Courthouse Gardens situated in Somerset, near Cheddar Gorge offer wedding clients a unique wedding ceremony and reception experience for up to 120 guests. We are licensed for civil ceremonies and should your preference be a church wedding, the stunning St. Johns the Baptist Church sits right next door to us too. 

Our venue grants you both indoor and outdoor, stunning, exclusive-use settings. Delight in the best of both worlds, where formal elegance is married with rustic charm; the perfect partnership you never knew you needed until discovering the Oakhouse Hotel and Courthouse Gardens.

As an exclusive-use venue, our stunning hotel becomes private to you from 11am on your wedding day until 11am the following day, including a fully licensed, staffed bar throughout. 

In the Spring/Summer months our beautifully manicured Courthouse Gardens play host to your daytime marquee reception between 1pm – 6pm on your special day, allowing you to bath in the sunshine before enjoying the cosy atmosphere of your very own private English Country Inn in the evening. 

In the winter months, when a marquee is less appropriate, we are fortunate to be located directly opposite the Axbridge Town Hall as a further option for your daytime activity.   

We have lovingly crafted a signature all-inclusive wedding package for both the Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter months, so leave all of the work to us and book a package that is based on tried and tested favourites.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to receive an entirely bespoke quotation, then please let us know and we can build the wedding day of your dreams from scratch from your own vision and desires. We are very flexible to the needs of our couples and can customise menu’s and work around your budgets It really is your wedding, tailored your way. 

Not forgetting that we are a dog friendly hotel too! Your four legged friends can be part of your special day, along with any of your guests dogs.
