You can't fail to be charmed by Dewsall, a 10-bedroom country house whose owners shudder at the words 'wedding package'.


There are oodles of options to create your own unique day here, including a choice of indoor and outdoor ceremony venues. Cuddle up on the tree swing for pics with a romantic vibe, then take to the rustic Wain House for your wedding breakfast- they'll even throw in the house's pretty china and vintage silverware.

Ceremony capacity: 140; Plate cost per head: £65;

Dreaming of your very own big house in the country for the weekend? Your wish is Dewsall's command.

The emphasis here is on tailor-made - they declare themselves a 'package-free zone' - and, with two nights' exclusive use, you have plenty of scope to make the place (including 11 boutique-style bedrooms) your own.

Choose to hold your ceremony in the house or gardens; followed by a reception in the unique, canvas-sided Wain House, or a marquee in the gorgeous 12-acre grounds.

Ceremony capacity: 120; Packages per person: £55; Corkage: £6
