For Pleasure. Wedding & Function Venue in Dorset


Unlike many venues Merley House can be booked exclusively for you and your guests to enjoy. As such it offers elegance, refinement and seclusion for important and special occasions. Our events team provide a service tailored to your individual requirements.

As a wedding venue our Civil Ceremony licence makes Merley House a magical and affordable alternative to a registry office and a lovely venue for a renewal of vows or baby naming ceremony.

Our in-house catering enables you to choose from a variety of dining options from an afternoon tea, to a buffet, barbeque or three course wedding breakfast.

Rooms to suit any occasion


The Drawing Room and Dining Parlour are similar in size and each incorporate enchanting ceilings ad impressive fireplaces. These rooms are perfect for smaller ceremonies, drinks receptions or buffets.

The largest of the rooms, The Old Library can accommodate a wedding breakfast, dancing and live music. The spacious classical entrance hall makes for a grand impression and leads to a magnificent staircase.

Upstairs the Old Nursery is perfect for the convenience of the Bridal party, a creche or for the safe storage of personal items. The facilities also include disabled access, kitchens, separate toilets, and ample parking.
