Syrencot House is a Grade II-listed Georgian country house in Wiltshire dating back to 1738.  The estate was acquired by the UK government’s War Office in 1898 and, during World War II, served as the residence of Lt Gen Browning, Gen Sir Richard Gale and Lord Alanbrooke.

During that time it was used in the planning and mounting of Operation Overlord, the codename for the Battle of Normandy, in particular, the plans for the taking of Pegasus Bridge.

After falling into disrepair, the house was restored in 2000 and is now owned by Artemis Venue Services.

Supported by Carter Planning and Lewandowski Architects, Artemis submitted plans to Wiltshire Council for change of use to an exclusive-use wedding venue.

The modern agricultural buildings on the site were demolished to make way for a ceremony and reception buildings, with the walled garden and grounds being restored to their former glory as part of the development.

Carpenter Oak were brought in at the early design stages by Lewandowski to help design a modern contemporary space that would be in juxtaposition to the Georgian house.
