Where to stay for one night after our wedding in West Country?

Hullo, hoping someone can help! We're getting married in the west country in November and would like to stay in a hotel locally the night after the wedding. Wooley Grange would have been our choice but they only accept 2 night bookings at weekends (as do Babington) so they're no good since we will travel home on Sunday and can't stay on Friday as well for various reasons. We could drive to Gloucestershire or anywhere within about 50 miles of Bath. There will be about 10 children and assorted adults. It needs to be somewhere that accepts children - Lucknham Park for example, doesn't apparently - and with baby listening. Money no object (well, pretty much) Thanks to anyone who has any ideas.

charlton house hotel. shepton mallet. i got married there. it is a blissful place of gorgeousness. if you explain the circs i'm sure they'll let you have one night. DO NOT go to ston easton (overpriced) bishopstrow (ditto)...charlton house isn't cheap (at all) but god it is so lovely. ask for Folly or Adam and Eve (most romantic rooms imo)...argh, wish i could go back (but have a 8 month old and altho they do baby listening, it is a romantic a deux place for me).

Just a word of waring- some friends of mine stayed at Charlton House recently with their dd; they had previously stayed as a couple and loved it, but when going with their dd they found it not nearly as child-friendly as they had expected. I can't remember exactly what the problem was I'm afraid, but they were very disappointed. You could try Calcot Manor- they say that they "normally" only accept two night bookings at weekends, but as there are so many of you they might make an exception? We stayed there recently and I had some reservations, but it wasn't bad.

Also have a look at Whatley Manor near Malmesbury - very very nice.

Just thought of Woolley Grange in Bradford upon Avon. DH went on a business do there and apparently it's sumptuous, and they are massively geared up for children (high tea, games rooms, nannies, baby listening etc).
