Venue Fact File: Clevedon Hall, Somerset

19 Sep 2016

Poised to create your happily ever after, Clevedon Hall in North Somerset is a majestic wedding venue which offers a personal approach

Owned and run by the McCarthy family, Clevedon Hall has undergone extensive refurbishment since 2010 to create one of the most desirable venues in the South West.


Overlooking Clevedon Bay, Clevedon Hall sits in the centre of Clevedon, a Victorian seaside town in North Somerset. The venue is conveniently located a few minutes from the M5 motorway and the team can arrange for collections from nearby airports (Bristol airport is 30 minutes away) and train stations (Yatton station is the closest at 15 minutes away by car). The venue also has space for a helicopter to land if necessary.




Clevedon Hall is a Grade II listed building, built in 1852. Originally named Frankfort Hall, it was the home of Bristol-based sugar tycoon Conrad William Fitzel 1st. It was renamed to Clevedon Hall in 1877 and served many functions which included a hospital, army mess, girls’ school and offices. The McCarthy family bought the establishment in 1991.




Having unveiled a new look following recent refurbishment, Clevedon Hall now boasts beautifully restored historic features and bespoke furnishing. Numerous elegant and stylish reception rooms serve to accommodate various sizes of wedding party – from 20 to 200 people. Such rooms include the Great Hall, Grand Library, Orangerie and The Snug.

Several acres of landscaped grounds also offer a glorious setting for photo opportunities and outdoor celebrations. Set amidst the manicured gardens, the recently constructed gazebo can be taken advantage of by couples who wish to wed outside. Seating up to 150 guests, the bespoke gazebo – made from accoya wood, can be reached by a sweeping path that takes in the venue’s surroundings and overlooks the flower-lined lake.



Complemented by the affable events team, wedding concierge services offer couples the opportunity for support and advice throughout their wedding planning journey. With a focus on personalisation, the team also pride themselves on a bank of expertise which includes wedding trends, financial planning and event management. The team can also recommend a host of local suppliers to fulfil the wedding day of your dreams.




In-house Michelin-trained executive chef, Alan Jones, is on hand to tailor-make each wedding menu. From cocktails and canapés to a lavish dinner and evening barbeque, no request is too big for Alan's talented team. Menu highlights include Cornish crab and avocado to start, followed by a trio of suckling pig and honeycomb parfait for dessert. 



Designed by the Bath-based Jane Clayton Interiors team, the venue’s 25 en suite bedrooms present charm and character that is in-keeping with Clevedon Hall’s country house style. The bridal suites boast additional lounges, dressing rooms and bathrooms containing Neals Yard products.
