Pylewell has a sensational parkland setting, with a spectacular position overlooking the Solent. The house is located on the edge of the New Forest National Park, with 27 acres of gardens, a 15-ache lake and private beach access. Host your wedding here, and you will have both sumptuous backdrops and perfect vistas for your wedding photography. From the grand 17th century house, to the sweeping view from the Pavilion to the stunning woodland gardens.
Pylewell is close to the sailing town of Lymington in the New Forest, and has a new one of a kind Pavilion. This extraordinary space has been built adjacent to the main house offering panoramic views across the Solent. It is able to seat up to 150 guests for your wedding breakfast. Situated where the old ballroom once stood, it was designed by Simon Bond. The impressive structure has a bar, dance-floor and floor to ceiling glass panels all overlooking the Solent.
Stunning chandeliers, bespoke antiqued trestle tables and oak cross back chairs have been made to order for Pylewell, adding a statement style, to a unique, elegant space which is complimented by a private terrace, lawn and ha-ha. The South Park overlooks the water and is a perfect spot for dodgems, fairground rides, glamping villages or outside games. We are not short of space, or imagination, and we would love nothing more than for you to turn Pylewell into the perfect venue for your wedding, and love it as much as we do!
There is a beautiful gazebo within the balustrade for your wedding ceremony or a small Church a quarter of a mile from the end of the drive. The hallway of the house is licensed for wet weather options also. Further benefits are a beautifully refurbished, intimate wing of the house made available for bridal getting ready space. There is disabled access and parking space on site. Basically, through the consultation and development of Pylewell Park the team in consultation with the family have thought of absolutely everything a couple would need, and have subsequently delivered it on a truly sublime level.
Tell us what makes your business special.
Aside from everything above, Pylewell has the added luxury of complete exclusivity being set majestically on a 1500-acre estate with 27 acres of rambling house gardens. The combination of panoramic views of the Solent as well as the natural beauty of the New Forest really does make the house unique. Dating back to the 17th century, the estate is keen to create a modern and beautiful space tying the wild beauty of Pylewell, the location and history of the house effortlessly together. Working with some of the most imaginative and professional wedding suppliers from Hampshire (the estate is keen to keep recommended suppliers local). Over the last six months they have curated such varied looks for the space, it only demonstrates just what is possible when you combine the best with the best. The estate is delighted to feature these adventures on the Hampshire Wedding Club, and national wedding blogs such as Whimsical Wonderland Weddings.
