Yarlington House – country house & wedding venue

Yarlington House

Situated in the South West of England in Somerset near Wincanton, the house it set within its own grounds and secluded private parkland. Yarlington House is a family home, owned and lived in by Count Charles and Countess Carolyn de Salis. The house was built in 1782 on the outskirts of the pretty little village of Yarlington, the first house to be formed in the area. The elegant Georgian architecture is carried out throughout the exterior and interior, clearly demonstrating the period with mellow bricks and textiles. The house has many features including a walled kitchen garden and dovecote. In the mid-1800’s the west wing was added to create more space for entertaining.

The extension is home to the music room with oak-panelled walls, large windows and paintings. The main hall of the house is bright, roomy and exquisitely furnished. It works really well as a meeting or drinks area for guests. The dining room with its light and airy feel looks out on to the gardens. Hung with tapestries and furnishings the room is extremely popular for receptions and formal dinners.

Since owning the house the count and countess have complemented the grounds and gardens by building the sunken wall knows as a “ha ha”, planting many trees and creating a sunken garden by the lawn.

What our clients have to say


“I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work. Your Building up/Breaking down team is brilliant. Such lovely, polite and hard-working boys. The lights were incredible. The lights against the tree were magnificent. The fairy lights along the hedge were pretty and so many people commented about the coloured dimmable lanterns in the dancing area…The dance-marquee itself was so pretty. And the rest of the marquees fitted really well. It really contributed towards making my dream come true!”
