Old Somerley

Old Somerley sits magnificently on the private Somerley estate, home to the 6th Earl of Normanton. This unique venue, which is exclusively yours, provides a truly spectacular setting for any private party, corporate meeting or team building day.

Just 20 minutes from Bournemouth, 35 minutes from Salisbury and 35 minutes from Southampton, Old Somerley is at the heart of 7,000 acres of spectacular rolling parkland, scattered with ancient trees, with the River Avon meandering its peaceful way towards the sea.

Old Somerley consists of newly renovated buildings adjacent to the original house which, while retaining the original features of exposed wooden beams, have been transformed in a truly contemporary style and are surrounded by the seemingly endless Grade I listed Walled Garden, with a backdrop of a 17th century folly.

The Estate and Old Somerley is one of England’s best kept secrets – because it is not open to the public, you can enjoy your special occasion in private.

Old Somerley provides a truly unique, inspiring and breathtaking venue for your very special day and is yours to enjoy in complete privacy.

Why not combine your party with a wide range of activities? The listed 2-acre Walled Garden, once the preserve of Victorian gardeners, affords an ideal location for ‘fun’ activities, including laser clay shooting, falconry, archery and even an “It’s a Knockout” competition for larger numbers of guests.

For further information and prices, please telephone 01425 473621 during office hours. The Somerley Estate is not open to the public, so we must ask that you call to book an appointment.
