Priory Bay Hotel
Whether you're looking for an elegant country house steeped in grandeur, or a simple, yet chic, barefoot wedding on a magnificent private beach — Priory Bay can accommodate a host of different wedding requirements.

This wildly romantic country retreat - set in its own 70-acre estate — boasts a range of period rooms and buildings, it's own sandy beach, panoramic views across The Solent, spectacular gardens, coastal and woodland walks, first-class dining and superb service.

The 18-bedroom hotel and neighbouring Tithe Barns are available for exclusive use. Many couples like to hire the whole hotel and treat this historic country house as their own, for the wedding weekend.

Our Head Chef and kitchen team can create a selection of special or bespoke menus, using homegrown and locally sourced produce: from sumptuous canapes to a seven-course banquet; a lobster/seafood barbecue to a simple pig roast on the beach.

Your Event Manager will create your own tailored wedding package: maybe a simple civil ceremony followed by a Champagne and canape reception; a relaxed barbecue overlooking the sea or a lavish wedding breakfast (for up to 180).

Well-serviced by fast trains from London, catamaran services and car ferries — the hotel is approximately 2.5 hours from the capital. Guests can also arrive by helicopter or directly onto the hotel's private beach by hovercraft.

Priory Bay can accommodate up to 100 guests overnight on its coastal estate.
