  • I'm a Dorset based wedding photographer, and I work at many venues acress the County. I just thought I'd let the world know what a great wedding venue this is, superb food, helpful staff, attention to detail, and most importantly for me the best photo backdrops in Dorset. Athelhampton has it all, I love photographing weddings here, and I hope I'm back for another visit again soon.
  • Great gardens, well done conversion of an old house. Cafe service a little slow
  • I was there for a wedding reception which was fantastic. A great place to visit with real character.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit - beautifully preserved house of historic interest and magical gardens. The restaurant is also first-class.
  • Nowhere in Dorset is more wonderful for a wedding 5***** all the way , perfect venue, perfect service, perfect wedding venue xx
