"Grittleton House is owned by the Shipp family and has been in their careful hands for more than 50 years. With its impressive tree lined drive it certainly offers the wow factor as you arrive. Step inside and you will find many beautiful features and exquisite architecture, including the high decorative ceilings, working fire places and breath-taking sweeping staircase. Look a little closer and you may spot the secret doors and hidden passageways. The House was built for entertaining, with its large ballroom, cosy library and elegant social spaces, not forgetting the impressive orangery overlooking the Italian sunken gardens. Grittleton House offers a magical charm, you can’t help but fall in love with it."

I could not recommend it more
by Isabella Shayegan & Berni Asante

We got married at Grittleton House in September 2019 and I could not recommend it more.
The setting is incredible and there are so many rooms in the house it really is perfect for a wedding. Emma could not have been more helpful throughout the process and on the day she and Nelson were amazing.
Given we have Ghanian and Persian family we wanted a bespoke wedding breakfast, we liaised with Andreas for a number of months and the food was excellent, so many of our guests complimented it.
The bedrooms at the top of the house are a wonderful touch and it is fabulous to stay and have breakfast with all of your guests the next day. The staff were all so kind and helpful, especially when we were packing everything up!
If you are thinking of booking a wedding here - DO IT, you will not regret it.
