Beautiful Wedding Venue in
Ilchester, Somerset

Our wedding venue is a stunning space and can be decorated to suit any style. Large glass windows face onto our enchanting gardens with 400-year-old horse chestnut and views over the South Somerset countryside. During the day, sunlight pours in whilst at night it can be beautifully lit with fairy lights 

We can accommodate up to 90 guests for formal dining and up to 140 in a less formal setting or for dancing! At The Northover, we pride ourselves on delivering great tasting food in relaxed and comfortable surroundings. We use locally sourced produce and all our dishes are cooked to order, using fresh ingredients. Just let us know what you’d like at your wedding. 

We even supply our own hand dried natural petal confetti from the plants in our garden!
