The Bedford Hotel, Tavistock
This historic hotel wedding venue sits just across the road from St. Eustachius' Church and the Pannier Market that this quaint town is well known for. It reflects the style and grandeur of the area and is packed full of charm, with original features and antiques on display in the public areas, and 31 individually styled bedrooms ranging from the comfortable classic ones to the indulgent four-poster rooms and the elegant bridal suite. The pretty front garden is delightful, especially in spring and summer with its flowers in full bloom, and one of the hotel's best-kept secrets is its ancient Walled Garden, often referred to as The Secret Garden, with its manicured lawn, formal borders and a herb garden used by the hotel's chefs.
Ceremonies take place in the historic wood-panelled Woburn Room for up to 90 guests while the reception for up to 100 loved ones is hosted in the Gallery 26 function suite, a bright and contemporary space at the heart of the hotel. It features floor-to-ceiling windows, atmospheric lighting, a dancefloor, air conditioning and underfloor heating. Although the room is contemporary in style, the historic features of the hotel are cleverly revealed in the design, giving it a unique flair.
We love... that the hotel encourages exclusive-use weddings with stylish accommodation available for guests.
