The Day Before

Wedding mornings are for drinking champagne rather than hanging bunting, so feel free to join us the afternoon before your wedding to decorate the venue in your chosen colours. Some of our packages include pre-wedding accommodation, meaning there’s no need to worry about booking a wedding car. (We find that brides often like to share their room with the chief bridesmaid and a bottle of fizz.)

Ceremony

Will you opt for the opulent Panelled Hall or the more intimate Study? Perhaps you fancy an outdoor wedding ceremony? With 32 acres of ancient Devon woodland and lush green spaces, Tawstock Court is ideal for garden weddings, and our Elizabethan Gatehouse certainly makes for a memorable location to exchange your vows. Many of our couples have their hearts set on a church-wedding – luckily the pretty St. Peter’s Church is just two minutes’ walk away. Once you’ve signed the register, join your friends and family on the lawn for a glass or two of bubbly.

You’ll be sitting down to eat in our light and bright Morning Room. ‘Do you want the chicken or the beef?’… At Tawstock Court, we believe you deserve rather more choice for your big day. So we’ll work with our chefs to give you the food you want, whether that’s a traditional wedding breakfast, vegetarian buffet or hog roast. We’re not precious though – if you’d rather book your own caterer, they’re welcome to make full use of our professional kitchen*. We’ve also got plenty of space outside if you want a fish & chip van or ice-cream kiosk. This is North Devon after all…

"I wish I could do my day all over again, I wouldn’t change a moment of it. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a 5 star wedding or function in a five star venue with 5 star staff. Thank you all at Tawstock Court. x"

Once you’ve eaten your fill, you’ll move into the historic Old Refectory to dance the night away with your friends and family. We can share details of local bands, entertainers, musicians and DJs to make sure the night goes off with a bang. Tawstock Court is a licensed venue and the original country kitchen has been converted into a well-stocked bar. We have over 15 brands of gin, and plenty of different wines and other tipples to keep your guests happy.

Once you've recovered and slept off the night before. Meet with family and friends the morning after for a freshly cooked English Breakfast. The perfect way to round off your special weekend.

Exclusive Use

You’ll have the run of several rooms for the day*, so guests can escape to a comfy chair in a quiet corner if they like, or challenge each other to a table football match in the Games Room. Fancy being Lord and Lady of the manor for a day? Why not opt for exclusive use of Tawstock Court? If you all decide to start singing Abba’s greatest hits at 2am, at least you won’t wake anyone else up.

We recently had our wedding at Tawstock Court and the whole experience has absolutely exceeded expectations and we could not be happier! There really is something so special about this venue and the family behind it.

Family Friendly

Family Friendly

We welcome children and have plenty of space to set up games and activities to keep them
happy. We know that younger guests often struggle to sit still during speeches, so you’re
free to transform one of the halls into a playroom if you wish*. In our experience, happy
children equal happy parents, so just ask if you want to book a bouncy castle, magician, or
other entertainment.

No Hidden Extras

No Hidden Extras

Your honeymoon suite is included in the cost of hiring Tawstock Hall and we won’t charge
you extra for playing our games or using our cake slice. We’re a family-run business and we
pride ourselves on transparent pricing.

And Breathe...

There’s no getting away from the fact that planning a wedding can be a bit stressful at
times. (Who knew there were so many words for off-white?) We want to take some of the
burden off your shoulders if we can.
Meet Laura – your Devon wedding co-ordinator. Laura will be the person you talk to about table
settings, suppliers and all those little details that go into creating your perfect wedding.
