Best wedding hotel venues in Somerset
Find your perfect hotel wedding venue in Somerset Think of Somerset and you are probably thinking of lush rolling hills, postcard perfect villages and sweeping landscapes as far as the eye can see, and of course you would be entirely right - what better backdrop for an English wedding? Somerset has a certain magic about it that's hard to find, bringing together a continuous beauty from its natural countryside to its towns and cities. Bath, for example, continues to have a regency elegance that dates back to its heyday, and of course its spa hotels are true to the area's relaxation history. Of course, that is not where Somerset stops. This is the home of Arthurian legends, Glastonbury festival and Mulberry handbags. It's the home of spectacular Christmas markets, superb local produce and beautiful beaches, so the opportunity to have a wedding that suits you and your style is abundant, and the hotels reflect that. Apart from the beauty of the area, food is very much a defining factor and Robin Hutson's The Pig restaurants, including The Pig near Bath are a testament to that. So for foodies looking for a location where the cuisine is as marvellous as the decor, this is the place to be. History is also a defining factor in Somerset, so whether your style of choice is a country pub with an extra flourish, or a Bath stone Regency hotel with all the luxurious trimmings, the area's past belies an opportunity to find a location that suits you, your ideas, your budget and the number of people you wish to have with you on your big day.
