Our Devon Country House Party & Wedding Venues
Sleeps 82 | 35 bedrooms | Events for 130
Your giant home from home
We are a wonderful and very large exclusive use private Devon wedding venue & country house party venue near Tiverton, Taunton & Exeter just 2 miles away from the Somerset border. We’re not stuffy here and whilst we have period character we also have modern comfort with a very open and flexible ethos to accommodate guest’s wishes and wants – from fully self catering to staffed silver service. Our 5 large reception rooms are all beautiful but furnished to be enjoyed – not just looked at! The 35 bedrooms, include the Gate House lodge and 5 bedroom Garden Wing and luxury vaulted top floor, so you can rent the house with as the right number of bedrooms from 19-35 to suit your stay – but it is always an exclusive use rental in a wonderful 5 acre private garden surrounded by rolling countryside.
We are the Un-Hotel Country House Venue – with as much, or as little, help from our house team as you’d like. The rental fee includes 5 hours of an experienced event planner’s time to help you organise you stay from self catering to fully staffed using our suppliers. So you can do it all yourself, arrange everything so it feels like a traditional hotel with silver service. Often clients decide on a bit of both, pix and mix so it’s private and homely with help where you feel you need it. Our large suppliers network is on line under the ‘inspiration’ tab in the menu and is the best of everything we can think of in the SW from the casual to the formal and covers as many things as we can think of from food suppliers, styling ideas and on site activities. Although the network is great you also have the freedom to use them or not, as you wish. So often clients bring their own chefs or caterers with them for their exclusive use country house rental. We also charge no corkage so you can buy your booze when and where you want and get it delivered. There are also no hidden fees with our banqueting furniture and utensils for 130 guests all included. Every guest is unique and so is their country house party vision so we are all about you having complete privacy and freedom to tailor the manor house and choose your suppliers to suit your specific want and style. Sleeps 80. Wedding venue and party events for up to 130.
