Our Venue

A unique wedding venue specialising in outdoor weekend weddings with unique woodland ceremony and celebration spaces.

The Old Dairy Barn

Our elegantly restored rustic barn – The Old Dairy – is the heart of the wedding venue.

With views of the meadows and woodland fringes, your guests will enjoy being surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside.

There’s plenty of space for live music bands, DJs and a dance-packed wedding celebration party.

The Silver Birch Church

Woodland weddings don’t come more beautifully elegant than this!  The silver birch church is romantic and secluded.  It’s just perfect for your woodland wedding ceremony.

Rows of white-bark silver birch trees form a natural woodland wedding aisle, the leaves offering a natural and pretty, shady canopy.

It’s also a great location for a woodland bar, an al fresco meal in the shade or even your first dance!

The Willow Cathedral

You can also choose to get married in the hill-top willow cathedral – a unique place for you to hold an truly memorable and special outdoor wedding ceremony with views of rolling Devon hills.

This has also been used for welcome drinks receptions, an open air music soiree and and the location for a surprise brass band serenade!

“it really was the best day ever”

“Just wanted to say an enormous thank you again for everything you did to make our day so perfect. I’m sure every couple says this, but it really was the best day ever and we are so grateful for everything you did to make it happen!”
