Originally constructed in the 16th Century and converted in the late 19th Century, the property offers a network of exquisite state rooms, a fabulous outdoor courtyard and luxurious period touches. Couples can marry in a local church or one of the two splendid ground floor reception rooms, the open air Courtyard or the Churchill Room, followed by a wedding breakfast in the Long Drawing Room or Small Drawing Room on the first floor.
The Churchill Room is equally as sumptuous; the original grand ballroom of the property, it features a sparkling statement crystal chandelier and magnificent Louis XIV walnut panelling.
The Long Drawing Room and the Small Drawing Room are both tastefully decorated in a late 18th Century style in keeping with the history of the property and giving a grand and luxurious feel to both spaces. The Long Drawing Room is particularly special with its Adams fireplace, beautifully draped full length windows and ornately carved ceiling.
Along with its majestic sweeping staircase, which provides the perfect location for memorable group wedding photos, Dartmouth House boasts one of London’s rarest features; an enclosed external courtyard.
