Babington House & its 17 acre estate dates back to early Georgian times. The House, nestling in the midst of rolling Somerset Hills, offers a perfect setting & backdrop for a traditional country wedding.
Babington House is an ideal location for a wedding at any time of the year from the warm inviting spaces and big open fire places in the winter months to champagne and bites on the lawn on a sunny day.
With the views of lake & grounds the Orangery can seat up to 80 people and along with the Logroom can seat up to 120.
Wedding ceremonies can be held in St.Margarets Church. It was built by Elizabeth Long the owner in 1750 and has retained most of its original features. The romantic chapel can seat up to 70 people. St.Margarets Church is a redundant former Church of England Parish Church that is owned and operated by the St. Margaret's, Babington, Charitable Trust.
You can hold a civil ceremony in Babington House itself, the less formal setting of the Library with up to 40 guests.
