Exploring Bristol: Clevedon Hall


Just outside the hustle and bustle of Bristol is a gorgeous get-away: Clevedon Hall. A mere 25 minutes from the city but seemingly a world away is a charming, idyllic country estate, perfect for hosting a party or wedding of any size.

The History

Originally named Frankfurt Hall, this estate has served many different uses over the centuries. It was built by Conrad William Finzel the 1st in 1852. Finzel was also the owner of a prosperous sugar refinery in Bristol.

In 1877, the property was sold and renamed Clevedon Hall. The property intermittently served as a family home until 1945 when it was transformed into a boarding school. In 1991, it became commercial offices. 

Finally, in 2010, Clevedon Hall was restored to its original glory as a place of fun, family, and friends. Clevedon Hall currently serves as a premier place for parties, corporate events, and weddings.

The Grounds

The hall itself may be the centerpiece of Clevedon Hall, but the grounds are just as impressive. With two and a half acres of sprawling, elegantly manicured lawns, tree-lined drives, and a private lake, Clevedon Hall provides a picture-perfect setting for any event.

For any event taking place in warm weather, the beautiful surroundings offer even more space for the party to continue out of doors. The grounds are ideal for party games, a barbeque, or a drinks reception.

The grounds also feature a rustic, handcrafted gazebo in the garden. The gazebo is a popular wedding spot, as 150 guests can be seated on the surrounding terrace. It’s an idyllic location for a wedding or wedding photos.

And not only are the grounds gorgeous, but Clevedon Hall is committed to keeping them that way. As a Green Tourism certified venue, Clevedon Hall is committed to preserving the environment of the estate.

The Hall

As beautiful as the grounds are, its hard to distract from the crown jewel of Clevedon: the hall itself. Crafted in a show-stopping Jacobean Revival style, the hall has the feel of stepping into the past, with all the comforts of the modern-day.

Among the modern amenities, Clevedon Hall offers complimentary Wi-Fi in all room and around the estate. Clevedon Hall also offers electric car charging and AV capabilities.

One of the many benefits of Clevedon Hall is the sheer size and number of different room ideal of any event. There are twenty-five en-suite bedrooms, each one thoughtfully decorated and designed. There are nine stunning meeting rooms, perfect for a corporate event.

If neither of those options catches your eye, there’s the Grand Library, the Conservatory, or the Great Hall. Clevedon Hall is truly equipped to provide an unforgettable setting for any event.

And Clevedon Hall is continuing to grow! An orangery was recently added for year-round events, with stunning views of the garden. Clevedon Hall is continuing to invest in the estate to make it as beautiful and welcoming to guests as possible.

Potential Clevedon Hall Events

With its myriad of rooms and sprawling grounds, Clevedon Hall is perfect for just about any event. Unlike many other venues, such as a hotel, Cleveland Hall can be booked exclusively for your event.
