Corporate & Venue Hire

Historic venue with bags of character and modern amenities.

North Devon Venue

Booking a venue for a corporate event can be a bit of a nerve-wracking experience. You need decent acoustics, reliable technology, break-out areas and excellent customer service. You want to know that your event is going to run smoothly. And you’re hoping that everyone who attends agrees that you chose the right venue. At Tawstock Court, we can give you all of that, and a lot more besides.

As a historic events venue, we have all the period charm that you want, with all the modern facilities that you need. Take a look at all that we can offer you. Who knows, it could end up gaining you a promotion (or at least a pat on the back).

“We hired Tawstock Court for an away day for 35 staff and trustees from The Plough Arts Centre which is a registered charity. The arrangements in advance, the welcome on the day, the beautiful facilities, the ambience, the friendly helpful staff and the delicious lunch were all first rate. It was the perfect setting in which to generate new ideas and plans for our organisation.”

Corporate Hire

Whether you’re organising a training event for 20 managers or a conference for 100 delegates, Tawstock Court has a space to suit your needs. You can expect excellent customer service, reliable technology and delicious food to keep attendees happy (and focused).

Courses & Workshops

If you’re looking for an inspirational setting for a workshop, retreat or course, Tawstock is pretty hard to beat. (We may be biased but that doesn’t mean it’s not true.) We can host a wide range of events, from week-long writers’ retreats to two-hour creative workshops.

Christmas Parties

Fancy celebrating the festive season a bit differently this year? Pull on your dancing shoes and join us for an evening of fine dining and even finer dancing. We can’t guarantee it’ll be a white Christmas, but we can guarantee there’ll be plenty of cocktails, music, entertainment, twinkling lights and laughter.

Special Occasions

Have a special birthday coming up? A landmark celebration like a golden wedding anniversary? At Tawstock we offer a special backdrop to host your event. We have a number of catering options for your party and a fully licensed bar for your guests.

Film & Photography Shoots

From our Georgian panelled hall to our grand staircase, there’s certainly no shortage of impressive backdrops at Tawstock Court. And that’s before you head outdoors to our 32 acres of woodlands and lawns with their stunning views across North Devon.

Concerts & Shows

As the saying goes, all the world is a stage. Well, we reckon our lawn and ballroom make rather good stages. Whether you need a venue for a touring children’s play or a Shakespearian masterpiece, we have the space, the acoustics and the period settings you’re looking for.

Spent the day here for a cardiology study day. Can I just say I was very impressed with the venue. The location was stunning, the food was far superior to any other venue I have been too, all the staff were welcoming and friendly, the old school had been refurbished to a high standard and even the sun shone. Look forward to my next visit.

Our Facilities

Modern Technology
When you’re presenting to a packed hall, the last thing you need to be worrying about is the technology. At Tawstock Court, you’ll have fast Wi-Fi speeds and access to reliable Audio Visual equipment*. So, whether you need a projector, video conferencing equipment or just a microphone and speaker, you’re covered.
Onsite Catering
Our new professional kitchen is well-equipped for catering to large parties. We’re also happy to let you arrange your own catering if you’d prefer. Most of our guests choose to eat in the light, bright Morning Room, but if you want to take full advantage of the glorious Devon sunshine and beautiful countryside views, you’re welcome to picnic on the lawn.
Licensed Bar
We’ve transformed the old manor house kitchen into a spacious bar and café area for guests to use during events. It’s well-stocked with a wide selection of wines, beers, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks, from artisan gin to good old builder’s brews.
Break Out Areas
We have several spaces available to hire, including a banqueting hall and large conference room. For weddings, courses and large corporate events, you may want to opt for exclusive use of the venue – giving you the run of all of the rooms. Your guests can set the world to rights in the Study, enjoy delicious local food in the Morning Room, or let off some steam in the Games Room.
Our recently renovated accommodation can cater for up to 50 guests, making Tawstock Court ideal for weddings, residential retreats and corporate parties. Find out more about our group accommodation.
Stunning Grounds
We have over 30 acres of beautiful grounds and ancient woodlands to explore. Guests are welcome to borrow our lawn games if they fancy trying croquet or giant Jenga. Evenings can get chilly, so we’ve built a fire pit* to keep you warm. (You can even toast marshmallows if you fancy.)
Free Parking
Don’t you hate it when you rock up somewhere for a weekend and get hit with an unexpected fee for parking? Our carpark is free for our guests and there are plenty of spaces.
Tawstock is accessible to all our guests and has a disabled toilet onsite. There are three large steps separating parts of the building, but we have a ramp on hand if you need it. We also have a fully accessible ground floor bedroom, with a roomy ensuite bathroom and space for a carer to sleep if required.
