Why hold a wedding day when you can have a whole wedding week or weekend? This historic venue is available to hire on an exclusive use, self-catering basis.

There are 20 bedrooms and bathrooms, with a maximum sleeping capacity of 50 people. The Palm House, Dining Room and Drawing Room are all licensed to hold civil ceremonies. The glass-roofed Palm House encompasses under-floor heating; air-conditioning; a modern bar area; dining capacity for 120 people and spectacular views across the landscaped grounds and lakes. The large semi-commercial kitchen makes food preparation a breeze and the three downstairs toilets mean less time queuing; more time dancing! A large gravelled car park allows ample room for coach and car parking.

Knowle Manor is situated in the stunning Exmoor National Park, which offers a wealth of medieval monuments, castles and breathtaking scenery. The local town of Dunster is an idyllic hub of restaurants, coffee shops, galleries and boutique shopping. The spectacular West Somerset coastline can be found less than ten minutes away.

Walk out through one of the Manor’s many French windows and you will discover large patios, enclosed lawns and picturesque outdoor seating areas. For the more active, Knowle offers an indoor heated swimming pool and a range of sports equipment to keep everyone entertained on one of the many lawns.

We take pride in our friendly and accommodating service. At Knowle there are no added extras; there are no additional charges for logs and heating; no fees for recycling collections and there is no corkage. Years of experience in the wedding industry have enabled us to compile extensive lists of recommended caterers; marquee companies; photographers, florists; bands and DJ’s to help you plan your big day.
