Harry Warren House

Harry Warren House is a picturesque 19th century country house set in 4 acres of spectacular seaside grounds.  Visitors are immediately struck when they round the bend in the drive by the breath-taking sweeping views over the bay, the scale and drama of these are quite unexpected.

The gardens and grounds have interesting features in the nicely laid out conifer garden with many rare species, the steps to the beach, the little amphitheatre, the woodland walk, and the bridge over the pond.  The grounds are mainly open lawn making them an ideal and flexible venue with plenty of room for guests to enjoy the scenery and children to run around and explore.

A wedding at Harry Warren is very much a bespoke experience. The grounds are dominated by the by the expansive sea view that changes from moment to moment and as dusk falls the lights of Bournemouth twinkle across the water. The beach steps lead directly down to the sandy beach and the lawn overlooks the beach, the cliffs and the bay. Spectacular. The ready access to the beach – just down the steps, through the gate and you are there – means that swimming is a real possibility.
