Rollestone Manor Bed & Breakfast is stunning Grade II listed building surrounded by ancient parkland, forests and gardens. Now privately owned by a friendly family who have decades of experience in hosting special occasions, this historic home was built in 1242 and still sits in the countryside just outside of Shrewton, just a few minutes drive from Stonehenge. The façade of the house was added in 1700 to add grandeur and enlarge the front of the building, and the newest extension was added in 1839 – meaning that this venue is truly historic and boasts a wealth of character features.
This is the ideal venue for an intimate wedding ceremony and reception. The Lounge serves as the perfect place for pre-diner drinks in front of a roaring log fire, and the Restaurant at Rollestone Manor offers a relaxed, comfortable environment for dining with views across the gardens. The Restaurant is licensed for civil ceremonies, and so is the Crystal Room – where you can enjoy the glittering surroundings of the family’s crystal glassware displayed in stunning antique cabinets and an original 1750s chandelier. A maximum of 22 guests can be seated in theatre style in each room, but intimate wedding packages at Rollestone Manor are offered for 10 guests at a time (see the all-inclusive package deal below).
After your ceremony, a Champagne reception can be served in the gardens of the Manor during summer months or in one of the beautiful function rooms in winter, before sitting down for your bespoke three-course meal.
For £120pp for 10 guests, you will receive exclusive use of this stunning venue for the duration of your event, with a champagne afternoon tea, accommodation in the seven luxurious bedrooms, a three-course dinner with a glass of wine each and a full English breakfast in the morning. This really is a cracking deal for such a picturesque venue, especially considering that the Bridal Suite boasts a four-poster bed and roll-top bath!
All the other rooms feature en suite bathrooms, antique furniture and beautiful views across the gardens, and some even come with cots and other facilities for small children. The Twin Room is on the ground floor, and the beautiful Colonel’s Room features a stunning open fireplace. The Bar will stay open for as long as your guests require it, and they’re also free to roam the grounds and the house as they wish.
Although this is a traditional countryside venue, you’ll find all the mod cons and contemporary facilities needed to have a 21st century wedding. There’s complimentary high speed WiFi that stretches throughout the entire building, iPod docking stations for the built-in sounds systems, spacious well-equipped bathrooms and central heating in all the events spaces and bedrooms.
