English Country Weddings ♥It’s lots of fun getting married in the country, sipping Pimms and homemade lemonade in the sunshine, drinking English tea from vintage tea cups and nibbling dainty little cakes in the farmhouse garden, festooned with bunting, overlooking the beautiful fields! Huntstile is a relaxed and friendly wedding venue giving a professional service and serving outstanding delicious food. Huntstile is a working organic farm nestled into the beautiful foothills of the Quantocks, among some of the most breath-taking scenery on offer. There is a very pretty little church just 1 mile from Huntstile or you can use the stone circle for a ceremony of your choice
Relaxing surroundings and a friendly team of staff to look after your every need – you name it and we can provide it at Huntstile.
Civil Ceremony ♥We have 2 lovely rooms licensed for Civil Ceremonies at Huntstile: the Garden Room (seated capacity 75 + standing) and the Dining Hall (seated capacity 65 + standing).We do not make any charges for this facility but you will need to pay the registrar fees for them to come and marry you – click here for further details.
Hand-Fastings at our stone circle ♥The Stone Circle was built in 2005 for a very special hand-fasting ceremony.
Made from ancient staddle stones, the circle lies on the edge of a wood upon a hilltop with breathtaking views across the county. We can recommend an excellent celebrant to perform the ceremony if required. Guests will be transported to and from the farm on a hay-bale ride in our tractor & trailer – great fun! (please remember: sensible footwear is a must)
The views from this beautiful spot are just amazing… Click here for more photos…
The stone circle is a magical spot to celebrate your marriage and make your vows to each other, as there are no legal restrictions you are free to write your own ceremony which can be a profound or as simple as you wish, because the choice is yours.
