Hamswell House is a Jacobean, Queen Anne and Georgian Manor House set in a terraced garden.

The early Jacobean façade with its elaborate carved stone portico is a fine example of the English Renaissance. The garden façade is Queen Anne with a stone shell hood on brackets carved with acanthus leaves and beasts above the door. The orangery in the grounds is 18th-century with high arched windows and a Cotswold stone roof.

The extensive gardens are terraced with a network of decorative stone walls and feature a pergola, a herb garden, a kitchen garden and traditional greenhouses.

The house is set in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with wide-ranging rural views.

A word from the owner

Did you know, the house was featured in Tess of the D'Urbervilles starring Eddie Redmayne and Gemma Arterton.

A wedding at Hamswell House


Hamswell House is a historic manor house on its own estate. It has an orangery and picturesque walled gardens and is surrounded by stunning countryside. It is a private estate not a hotel, a golf club or a corporate events venue and that is what makes it so different.

When you hold your ceremony and wedding reception at Hamswell, you will have the exclusive use of the orangery and the grounds for the day and evening to share with your guests.

Many thanks for the most perfect wedding weekend. So many people said it was the most amazing wedding venue and it felt so incredibly special. You were both wonderful throughout the planning and we cannot thank you enough.
