7. Brympton House, Somerset
Brympton House has bags of charm and is packed to the 14th-century rafters with atmospheric spaces. Marry in the dramatic Castle House then capture photos by the lake.

But the stunning scenery isn't the jewel in this South West wedding venue's crown. That award goes to the accommodation, with room for over 80 guests and the chance to enjoy it for an entire weekend.
9. The Green, Cornwall
A country house wedding venue with an altogether different character, The Green is full of surprises. That's because nestled beside the Georgian villa are not one but three wedding barns.

Dinner and dancing take place in the Red Brick Barn, lovingly reimagined from its former life as a cattle shed.
