We’re really lucky to live this close to Smedmore House. Smedmore house, an ideal venue nestled in the Purbeck hills. Forever welcoming to weddings or parties. We are surrounded by so much beautiful countryside (even if we don’t always see it as we rush off with our photo booths to a new event!), but this house draws us back again and again.
We have Bournemouth as our backstop with many great venues for wedding receptions, birthday an ideal monitor for parties or corporate shindig; but it’s outside the big cities that I think Dorset comes into it’s own. Smedmore House is one example of a wonderful country venue with vast views, excellent facilities and peace and quiet (you might notice a theme with these blogs at the moment). Stay in the house, have the marquee in front …. ideal!
Wedding venue - Smedmore House
As always with Smedmore House an ideal venue is any day is beautiful which just shows it off to it’s best advantage. Of course, there’s much more to the estate than just the house. Whilst today we didn’t have time to get down to the Jurassic Coast or into the village, it’s certainly worth doing. If you are staying at the house during the wedding then we’d particularly recommend Clavell’s Cafe - locally sourced food doesn’t get much more local than this. And The Etches Collection Museum.
