Enter the house through the impressive portico, into the imposing double-height hall with its beautiful cupola. The hall is spacious, and connects the reception rooms, all of which are styled with period French furniture, paintings and antiques.
At the end of the hall is the Dining Room, a 10m x 5m room with large windows running down its length. This gives the room a beautiful light throughout the day, and lovely views over the grounds. There are two fires here, both of which can be used on cooler days.
The Dining Room is a truly special setting for an intimate dinner. Fourty-eight people can be seated on round tables, or if you would prefer to dine in banqueting style, then one long table running the length of the room can seat 32.
The Dining Room can seat 60 for a wedding ceremony, and can also be used for the evening entertainment.
Steeped in elegance with French empire furniture and a magnificent bay window with views of the lake, this is a beautiful room.
There is a grand piano so you could entertain your guests with a pianist during the drinks reception, or simply use the Ceremony Room as a quieter sitting room during the evening entertainment, with chairs and sofas pulled up close to the log fire.
The Ceremony Room is licensed to seat 50 for a wedding ceremony, and is also a lovely space to cut the cake, and can also be used for the evening entertainment.
The bar is set up here in this intimate, atmospheric room. It has a large fireplace, windows overlooking the grounds and doors leading out to the garden.
Here’s a floor plan of the reception rooms at Purton House. There is also a loo and cloakroom downstairs, and a larger bathroom upstairs.
