You are spoilt for choice at this Palladian mansion which has a gorgeous Mendip Hill setting.

There are six rooms available for a ceremony, from the grand Saloon, pictured, to the historic Print Room. The restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes (think luxe dishes of game, lobster and truffles).

There are just 22 bedrooms, so you could hire it for exclusive use - just make sure you book the Master Bedroom, with its views over the valley of the River Norr, which runs through the mansion's 36 acres of parkland.

Ceremony capacity: 120; Food cost per head: £33; House wine: £21; Corkage: £20; Marquee available; Countryside setting
