A few 2016 highlights

Splotts Moor is now booked up for events and weddings through 2017, with just a few weekends available in 2018 - if you want to hold an event at Splotts Moor, contact Hilary and Gordon now at to avoid disappointment.

We are very grateful to all of the couples who have chosen to host their wedding parties here this Summer. Here are some of the amazing testimonials we've received:

We had such a wonderful wedding day at Splotts Moor. We really cannot recommend the beautiful, unique venue more. Hilary, Gordon and the whole team were absolutely wonderful. They were incredibly helpful, creative and supported us in all our decisions - from having fireworks to a hot air balloon. It was a truly superb day and we cannot thank everyone at Splotts Moor enough for their hospitality. So many amazing memories.

We are so happy we chose Splotts Moor as our wedding venue. We booked almost exactly a year in advance and loved every moment or organising it. Hilary, Gordon and the team are an absolute dream to work with. I'm fairly sure we used every tip when it came to local suppliers. We researched all the same but came back to the same suggestions each time. The venue is beautiful. We left it on the Friday and when we returned on the Saturday it was laid out not only with our decor but lots of gorgeous touches which really brought it to life. Last but not least were the team. All guests commented on how great they were, how friendly and helpful. I myself noticed through the night the little touches that only a bride would notice.
We can't thank them all enough for their hard work and definitely can't recommend them enough!! 
Mr & Mrs Weston
We are beyond happy that we chose Splotts Moor for our wedding day! We were looking for somewhere a little different where we could create an outdoorsy and festival feel and Splotts Moor was just perfect. The gardens sold it to us, they are just beautiful, getting married in the garden was exactly what we had imagined, the marque is gorgeous and the wooden beaming makes such a difference. Hilary, Gordon and Sam could not do enough to support us with planning and they worked tirelessly to set up, it was just gorgeous on the day, we were able to have individual bits to create the feel we wanted, but to be honest the nature around it amazing on its own! We had the best best time, as did all our guests, it was laid back and fun from start to finish...we cannot thank you three enough xx

The most magical, beautiful place; run by such an amazing family. So many special memories made here.

Splotts Moor was also featured on Tilley's Vintage blog this year as #1 Woodland Wedding venue near Bristol: "I defy any couple not to find the exact spot they are looking for here..."

What can we say? We are really looking forward to more celebrations next Summer!

Looking forward to Summer 2015 - booking now for 2016 events!

It's always both an honour and a delight to host important moments in people's lives, and especially such happy occasions as weddings, on our Farm.

In the last twelve months we've seen Splotts Moor events featured on several wedding blogs - have a look to get a feel of how special your day can be here:

Susie and Leo by Hacker Wedding Photography
"...they mounted their ‘just married’ tandem, and did a lap of the ground past the stone circle and tree-carving of a smiling person, before gathering in the timber framed marquee unique to the venue. And what a venue."

Lou and Kev by Sian Robinson

"It had the feel of a music festival and it was just lovely..."

Pete and Hollie on the 'Festival Brides' blog
(photographed by Emma Stoner)
"...the venue is just perfect for a laid back festival wedding"

...and most recently, in Pagan Wedding Planners' top 10 Handfasting Venues 
(along with Chalice Well, Wookey Hole, and Avebury Stone Circle!)

"This is an amazing place just outside of Glastonbury. It has wonderful views of Glastonbury Tor one side and the stunning Somerset levels on the other. The owners are simply lovely and bend over backwards to give you the day you want. They have a purpose built stone circle on their land that, although it is modern, has been created with intent and love and the space is full of a gentle energy. There is accommodation in their B & B, and they allow camping if you want a “festival feel” to your celebrations. The marquee is stunning and is of a high standard, as is everything about this amazing venue. They book up for weddings very quickly so it is always good to enquire way in advance of your date."

...speaking of which, the whole of this year has been booked up for some time. We are really looking forward to welcoming more couples and partygoers onto our Farm this year. And there are just a few slots left next Summer, so get in touch now to book our grounds and purpose-built marquee for 2016!

Welcome to Splotts Moor

Splotts Moor Farm is a guesthouse and venue for weddings and special occasions, run by Gordon and Hilary White on the outskirts of Glastonbury.

Once part of Wick Farm where the famous old oaks Gog and Magog stand, the Splotts Moor grounds now host thousands of its own trees in twenty five acres of woodland, planted in recent years, which guests are welcome to explore.

We'll occasionally post news from the farm here, and we'd be glad if you also want to follow us on facebook - please explore the pages at the top of the site for all the details of our guesthouse, event provision and more.
