This exclusive-use wedding venue is positioned in the beautiful Devon countryside allowing for panoramic views of the Blackdown Hills and surrounding areas. It's ideal for couples searching for privacy in a quiet, rural setting yet still easily accessible and offering a bespoke service.
The property is unlike many other barn venues because it marries contemporary and traditional architecture and is accessible for everyone, with gently sloping inclines and step-free access. The Walled Garden, with its neatly manicured lawns, fragrant flower beds and hand-crafted oak arbour at the end of a lavender-lined aisle, provides a stunning ceremony backdrop for up to 156 loved ones and is also ideal for al fresco drinks and canapés, and garden games. The grounds beyond offer the opportunity to capture picture-perfect photographs by the fountain in the lake, the horses in the paddocks, and against the incredible countryside views at sunset.
The Cider Barn, with its polished concrete floor and oak trusses, provides a beautiful indoor space for ceremonies of up to 156 guests, a great indoor option depending on the weather. The fully glazed gable end allows for uninterrupted views of the Walled Garden and the romantic fairylights decorating it creates a stunning setting for the first dance.The Stable Barn is the newest space, designed with warm timber panelling, stylish bespoke lighting and a floor-to-ceiling window that floods the room with light. When set-up for a wedding breakfast, it can seat up to 156 guests and has a bar for evening receptions of up to 200 loved ones.
The Press Bar, with its cosy wood-burning stove, comfortable seating and bar serves a wide selection of artisanal beverages while The Tack Room is a quiet space away from the excitement of the wedding for couples to steal a moment together.
We love... the firepits that guests can use to toast marshmallows over. The romantic lighting throughout really adds to the magical feel of the venue, whatever the season. The lighting in the Walled Garden adds a glow to the arbour and the pathway during the evening.
