the house - QUINTESSENTIALLY ENGLISH & exclusively yours

Situated in the heart of Amesbury, this historic, Grade II Listed building, built in 1923 in the Queen Anne style, and set in three acres of attractive formal gardens and parkland, boasts beautiful, original, ornate features and will, without doubt, provide the perfect backdrop for your big day… not to mention all your photos – picture memories to last a lifetime!

For weddings, Antrobus House is hired on an exclusive use basis and affording couples, their family and friends privacy, it has two large function rooms; The Edmund Hall on the ground floor and The Lady Florence Room on the first floor – both rooms measure 8m x 13.5m.

“An absolute hidden gem. all of our guests commented on the beauty of the house and gardens, the convenient location and the helpful staff. We would not hesitate in recommending this venue." Laura & Harry

THE EDMUND HALL

The Edmund Hall, with its parquet flooring, wood panelling, floor to ceiling ornate windows and sumptuous drapes, is a light and airy space that lends itself perfectly to wedding receptions.  This room can accommodate up to 90 guests for a formal seated reception at 6' round tables, increasing to 150 guests for a more informal standing/seated evening reception.  It also has its own raised stage, which measuring 3m x 4m, is perfect for live music or a DJ.

There are two sets of double doors in the centre of the hall; one opening on to the lawned area at the front of the House, and the other opening on to the attractive Edmund Terrace at the rear of the House, overlooking the bowling green. 

"We cannot recommend this venue enough. If you are looking for a venue full of charm and beauty, then look no further. Antrobus House has all that and more!" Saskia & Aaron

THE LADY FLORENCE ROOM

The charming Lady Florence Room on the first floor, with stylish windows allowing the light to flood in, is perfectly suited to ceremonies, relaxed drinks receptions or perhaps a chillout room, whilst everyone parties on downstairs. The Lady Florence Room is only accessible via stairs - we do not have a lift.

“From the moment we made our enquiry about booking Antrobus House for our wedding and right through to the day, every person we had contact with was friendly, helpful and supportive. Stood inside those gates in the magnificent surroundings of Antrobus House, hosting our celebration was magical. We wouldn’t hesitate to do it again!" Alexa & Rob

THE FRONT LAWNS

Once you arrive at Antrobus House, it’s time to make your entrance! Step out of your wedding car and walk through our ornate wrought iron gates at the front and up the garden path towards the House - your guests will ALL be gathered together in excitement, waiting to greet you. 

The double-lawned garden at the front of the House offers couples plenty of space and is extremely versatile.  Weather permitting, you and your guests may like to enjoy ‘al fresco’ welcome drinks and canapés here, prior to taking your seats inside for your wedding breakfast… and as mentioned before, this area provides plenty of photo opportunities, with the House your perfect backdrop. 

With shrubs and bushes all around, our front garden can also be used for garden games, a chillout area for guests and is large enough to accommodate a bouncy castle, or even a small marquee.

“The venue is beautiful. The staff are highly efficient. I honestly couldn't have wished for a more welcoming, warm, friendly and grand location for our day. It was simply perfect." Anya & David

THE edmund terrace & REAR lawns

Our attractive Edmund Terrace at the rear of the House, overlooking the bowling green is a great place to have your wedding bar and/or outside catering, so if you’re planning a more ‘relaxed’ wedding and are considering a BBQ, Hogroast, Wood-Fired Pizza, Fish ‘n’ Chips or any other kind of outdoor ‘Street Food’, your caterers can all be easily accommodated here. Another private spot to chill, enjoy drinks and catch up with your guests, it’s just off the Edmund Hall and therefore conveniently just a small hop away from the Dance Floor!

We also have extensive lawns with beautiful mature trees beyond the bowling green, offering plenty more photo opportunities - Antrobus House and its grounds are much bigger than you might think!

"We held our wedding here in August. All I can say is "Wow!". What a beautiful venue, run by amazing people.” Erin & Stuart

Extensive Renovation

Having recently undergone extensive renovation, Antrobus House is now open and available to hire, having been completely refurbished throughout.  A modern heating system has been installed, there is a brand new industrial catering kitchen as well as all-new toilets, disabled and baby-changing facilities.

The building has also been given a complete makeover with new décor throughout, new sumptuous curtains in the Edmund Hall, a new parquet floor, refurbished radiators, refurbished wood panelling and a stylish new fire escape has been installed from the Lady Florence Room on to the Edmund Terrace at the rear of the building.  Antrobus House has never looked better and everybody loves it!

A brand new wi-fi system, alarm system and new CCTV cameras have also been installed.

our Bar & Kitchen

Antrobus House is licensed for the sale of alcohol and live entertainment.  Our appointed Licensee will provide a fully-staffed bar for you, the cost of hire is payable direct to them and is just £75.  A minimal charge for corkage applies if you would like to supply your own wine/champagne for toasting – this is normally just £3/bottle to include glass hire, chilling and serving.  It’s not possible to arrange or book an external bar or to provide your own bar, including any "free bars".

YOUR Suppliers - you choose

With the exception of the bar, we do not have ‘preferred suppliers’ so you have freedom of choice as to which suppliers you wish to book.

However, we will be only too pleased to suggest suppliers to you, should you wish.  Our ‘Little White Book of Weddings’ is brimming with fantastic local wedding experts we know, love and trust.
