Devon benefits from having some of the most awe inspiring scenery in the UK. What’s more, the county also boasts a seaside view of the English Channel, Dartmoor National Park, Exmoor National Park, and has its own fair share of Country Estates. Not forgetting the South Devon coast often referred to as The English Riviera, which has Global Geo-park status and the beautiful historic city of Exeter, with one of the oldest Cathedrals in the UK. Devon truly is a romantic county to celebrate your special day.

Look for Individuality, Personal Service and Atmosphere

Devon is a place that most fall in love with on their first visit. If a romantic country house hotel set in acres of land with gardens, orchards and tranquil views sounds interesting, we recently attended a wedding at a country house Hotel near Exeter overlooking a country estate. With a reputation built over many years for outstanding food, service and panoramic views of Devon countryside, we were not disappointed. With a gracious welcome offered to all, the food in the restaurant was equally refined. Roaring log fires and generous hospitality created the ideal atmosphere. They also had a marquee and the whole venue offered a wonderful sense of occasion – something that’s difficult to find in larger hotels. Exquisitely designed rooms, amazing views and attentive staff – it’s the individuality, personal service and outstanding location that made this Devon wedding venue stand out.

Beautiful Scenery and a Warm Welcome

So if you are lucky to be engaged and looking for a place to get married, do consider the County of Devon as your ideal location. Beautiful scenery, a rich history, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere regardless of the season awaits you.

Coastal Devon Wedding Venues

Devon is a county lucky enough to have two coastlines. The south coast is home to the calmer shores with fabulous South Hams scenery and pretty coastal towns such as Salcombe and Dartmouth. The north coast is a popular holiday destination with its long stretching beaches and fabulous coastal hotels.

So if you are lucky to be engaged and looking for a place to get married, do consider the County of Devon as your ideal location. Beautiful scenery, a rich history, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere regardless of the season awaits you.
