Pythouse Kitchen garden is a stunning 18th Century walled garden and is a truly unique and distinctive setting in the Wiltshire countryside. Because of its individuality and set up, we have many different options for your event whether a small, intimate party or a grand wedding reception.
Our sister and neighbouring venue, Hatch House, has a licence to hold Civil Ceremonies in their 17th Century walled garden so you could get married there and take a short, picturesque stroll over our private bridge to your wedding celebration.
Our Orchard can accommodate a marquee to seat up to 200 guests with a dance floor and stage. Our Potting Shed can seat up to 60 guests or be transformed into a disco for later on in the celebrations.
