Grittleton House is a private wedding venue, as such when the couple book the house, it is normal that it also includes the bedrooms.  If you would like to book a room this MUST be coordinated through the couple. 

If the rooms are in use the night prior to your event, this is not usually possible.

All our luxury House bedrooms are individually designed and marry a traditional elegance with contemporary style. All bathrooms are equipped with toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.  There is a hairdryer in each room, and a shared iron and ironing board for guests’ use.  Each room has tea and coffee making facilities and a snack basket.

Our Stables bedrooms are more moderately priced, but still offer the same toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities.

We have wheelchair ramps throughout the ground floor, however due the House being a grade 2 listed building we do not have lift facilities to the first floor. We have a large ground floor toilet with wide easy access and plenty of space.  We can’t however call it a disabled toilet as it doesn’t have an emergency pull cord, grab rails or a raised seat.

The bar takes both cash & card payments.
