Pauntley Court is painted a reddish earth colour, reflecting the iron-rich soil of the area, and curled around a central courtyard, it glows rosily in the evening sun, surrounded by munching cows and sheep, its only neighbours, The Dovecote and the Norman Church.



Mark and Melissa, the current owners, were married at Pauntley Court in 1996 and their 3 children were christened in the church.  They took over the running of the estate from Melissa's mother in 2008 and have continued the restoration each year, culminating in launching as a wedding venue in 2019. Mark and Melissa are very excited to be welcoming you to this romantic and unique place.

As a family business, we love nothing more than to welcome couples and other families to this wonderfully warm, characterful and special place. 

Melissa will always meet every couple and show them around the house and gardens giving them the history and many interesting facts about the house over the last 800 years. She is passionate about Pauntley !


We have a wonderful team here at Pauntley that help us to restore, conserve and improve the house and gardens at all times.

Melissa's mother, Christine and Nikki manage the beautiful gardens, looking after the details and design of the flowerbeds. Christine planted and created all of the gardens you see today.

Richard and Andrew work hard to maintain the extensive yew and box hedging, lawns and grounds.

Rachel, the housekeeper and her team of cleaners ensure the house is up to the high standard and quality that all our guests expect.

Holly and Rebecca, our new wedding coordinators, ensure that the planning and the wedding day are as perfect as you had imagined.

We all cannot wait to welcome you to Pauntley Court and help you create your dream wedding day!
