Pynes House Full Description
Believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, we think you will agree that Pynes House is a wonderful place to host your perfect wedding weekend. Built in the beautiful Exe Valley in about 1700, just three miles from the centre of Exeter, Pynes House makes the ideal year-round private retreat for intimate groups or larger wedding ceremonies and receptions. During the summer, make the most of our manicured lawns, ornamental terraces and pretty woodland, and in the winter enjoy the cosy romance of our beautiful interiors, stunning views and open log fires. We specialise in country house wedding weekends so that you can spread your wedding celebrations across the weekend and make the most of gathering your closest friends and family in one place. Alongside luxurious accommodation for up to 28, there are a number of magnificent state rooms, with capacity to seat up to 96 for a sit-down meal. For larger weddings, or if you’d like your wedding reception to be outside, a marquee can be positioned on the lawns. With the house as a magnificent backdrop and surrounded by breathtaking countryside, the grounds of this charming wedding venue in Exeter are the perfect setting for a marquee and outdoor celebration. Always exclusively yours, we pride ourselves on the personal touch, helping you to create the perfect wedding for you.

Perfect Weekend!
We booked Pynes House as our wedding venue without having visited, so that made it all the more sweeter when we showed up and it felt like we walked into a fairy tale. The house is spectacular and the grounds were absolutely beautiful with the colorful gardens and the rolling hills in the background. We had an amazing sunny day one night and a rainy day another night, but regardless of the weather conditions, the venue's charm shone through. It was also incredibly fun to have our closest friends and family staying under one roof for the entire weekend. We couldn't imagine a better venue and location and we're so happy we chose it sight unseen! Our assigned day-of planner, Natalie, was amazing, too. We talked through our vision with her, and when the weekend arrived, she executed it perfectly. We didn't have to worry about anything, which allowed us to fully enjoy our weekend. Thank you to Pynes House for giving us some of our best memories! We hope to get back some day.

Stuck with us through it all
Not only was the value the most beautiful place we had ever seen. My wife-to-be ended up having emergency heart surgery the day of our flight to the UK for our wedding. We had to cancel last minute. Instead of punishing us, the whole team graciously postponed our wedding so that we could celebrate at a later date. Beautiful venue. First class hosts.

The day of our dreams!
Pynes house really was our dream venue and it exceeded all expectations on the day! The epic driveway and grandeur is only the start of how amazing it is. The whole venue is ran impeccably and the wedding coordinator you’re assigned will be the best of the best, ours certainly was! Couldn’t have had a more special day.

The Most Perfect Place in The World
There is not enough good I can say about Pynes House, its staff, or the people who own it. Not only is it the most beautiful and magical place you'll come across, it's run and managed by the kindest people. If you can believe it, it's even better in person than in any photo. My husband and I went through a lot to finally have our wedding here. We live in the US, and I thought planning a wedding overseas would be extremely challenging to begin with, but Pynes House always had amazing recommendations, helpful tips, and did everything they could personally to support us. We were supposed to get married in July 2022, but the week we were set to fly out for our wedding I had to have emergency open heart surgery and our wedding was cancelled on extremely short notice. Not only did Pynes House express sympathy and understanding, they worked tirelessly with us to finally make our wedding happen this past June. They were kind, caring, incredible. Phoebe never left my side and made me feel like I was there with a best friend. If you want an incredibly beautiful place, arguably one of the most beautiful places on Earth, to get married - this is it. (The rooms all thoughtful and stunning, views, gardens, fountain - it's magic and a fairytale). If you want a venue run by people who care about you and your life and your day - there isn't anywhere better. We will always be thankful <3

Better than our dream wedding
The venue, the rooms, the team, the suppliers, our wedding coordinator - all perfection. On the final day we walked the venue sharing our fondest moments with tears rolling down our faces. Pynes made our dream wedding come true and we wish we could do it again every year !

The most incredible venue for our perfect day!
We got married back in May 2023, I had originally viewed Pynes house back in 2019 when my sister had got engaged and was looking for a venue. I instantly fell in love and knew from that moment that is where I’d get married in years to come. Fast forward to 2021, engaged and our turn to wedding plan, we only viewed 2 other venues as I knew deep down where we wanted to get married, that being Pynes. The most beautiful, breathtaking venue and even to this day so many of our guests always talk about it. I could not fault Kate & Phoebe throughout, and on the day everything went perfectly.
