Hatch House

A Beautiful Country House Wedding Venue in Wiltshire
Hatch House is home to Sir Henry and Lady Rumbold (Frances), who have lived here together since 1977. They married the following year! Sir Henry succeeded to the family baronetcy five years later, following his father’s death. Hatch is a family home; Sir Henry came here when he was six, with his three sisters, and their collective childhood memory of life at Hatch is vast and picturesque. Lady Rumbold has always regarded the Dutch Garden as “the best room in the House” and she and Sir Henry dreamed of using it as a theatre. 

For years the dream lay dormant, until Matt Brady came, cast his eye upon it, and was immediately moved to ask if he could produce a ballet evening here. Matt has now been doing this for 5 years:  it was the beginning of events at Hatch. The Rumbolds now greatly enjoy sharing their spectacular house & garden for weddings and other events.

Hatch House consists of the picturesque remains of a 17th century manor house, the former home of the Hyde family (Anne Hyde was the mother of Queens Anne & Mary). The house was partly burnt down in the 18th century. It was bought in the 1840s by the Bennet family, from whom the Rumbolds are descended. The Bennets resurrected the house in 1908, employing the romantic Arts & Crafts architect, Detmar Blow.

Armorial gates lead into a lofty lime avenue, which sweeps down to the house and garden. The house’s theatrical facade faces the exquisite 17th century walled Dutch Garden. The Dutch Garden has two tiers of lawn framed by herbaceous borders and offers spectacular pastoral views across the Vale of Wardour to the downs.

The garden is available to hire for weddings and other social functions. It offers a good  choice of sites for erecting marquees, as there are four capacious level lawns.
