  • Due to get married here on the 20th august. Beautiful house and gardens and really good food and service. Highly recommended. 😃
  • Fantastic gardens and interesting historical house. Very helpful friendly staff.
  • 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.
