Full Description
You have use of a suite of rooms, both period and modern, with comfortable on-site accommodation for up to 50 people, a licensed bar and fairy lit courtyard. When you choose Tawstock Court you are booking your own country estate for your special day. The Panelled Hall (Max. 90 people) provides the perfect indoor space to say your vows. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, the 16th century Elizabethan Gatehouse is a great choice for a fine weather day. If you wish to have a church wedding, St. Peter’s Church is situated only a 2 minute walk away. You and your guests can mingle outside on the balustrade or indoors in the Morning Room whilst enjoying welcome drinks. The Study, Lantern Staircase, Courtyard and outdoor spaces along with the ancient woodlands offer numerous photo opportunities. The licenced bar is a modern yet vintage style space complete with a carefully selected gin list, lager, ales, cider, spirits and soft drinks. The Old Refectory (max. 108 people), is an elegant function room to host your wedding breakfast. It has a stunning Parquet floor and reclaimed wood feature wall and, in the evening, sets the stage for a band or disco with mood lighting. We are happy for you to choose your own professional external caterers to suit your requirements.

More than picture perfect
Stunning location, with the added bonus of the church being at the bottom on the lane Calm, stress free and perfect Attention to detail in every aspect, from the accommodation to naming drinks at the bar So many compliments on the venue, the location, the stunning views and the amazing atmosphere The variations in places to go made the whole day flow and maintain the entertainment Front of house with garden games, the clutterbuck bar-newly opened to start the flow of the day guests, the back courtyard was perfect for the night atmosphere, games room, dance floor and the list goes on! The staff were lovely and all really complimented the venue The accommodation was beautiful!Welcoming, comfortable and relaxing I would do it all again in a heartbeat

Couldn't have wished for a better day
We both have no words about how amazing our day was. We couldn't have imagined a better day than we had. Everyone said how perfect the venue was and the Tawstock team were just brilliant. We wish we could re-live the day all over again! A huge thank you to everyone at Tawstock for making our day so special, personal and just 'us'

The wedding weekend of our dreams!
After much research during lockdown in London, we only needed to visit one venue in Devon - Tawstock Court. As soon as we looked around we knew it was the only venue we wanted to get married at! We were so impressed with how Laura and family continued to add new features to the house and grounds each time we visited. Laura and her team were so accommodating and really helped us create the wedding weekend of our dreams, as well and ensuring everything ran smoothly on the day. Our reception for 92 people was just the right size for the venue. We were able to get married outside in front of the Tudor gatehouse, which made for stunning photos and a totally unique experience. We had chosen a spring wedding so we could get some photos in the bluebell woods and the photos here were breathtaking, Tawstock team made sure we knew how to find the best spot and had cut a path for us too. The extra features like the games room, courtyard with fairy lights and the comfy lounges were all well used too. The accommodation on site is stunning and beautifully finished, particularly the honeymoon suite which also made for the perfect wedding prep area. The shared kitchen / sofa areas are brilliant communal spaces eg for the night before as well. We cannot recommend Tawstock Court highly enough. Thank you! Photos by Amy Chapple Photography

Tawstock was totally stunning!
Laura and team at Tawstock Court made possible our perfect wedding this April 2022! We looked at many venues in North Devon but Laura and Tawstock stood out both to us. Laura was friendly, welcoming and accommodating and Tawstock was totally stunning! Their team worked hard to make sure the day went without a hitch! We also loved that we could decorate the tables and venue ourselves the day before and stay all weekend with our friends and family. Could not have imagined a more perfect place to celebrate our wedding! A huge thankyou to Laura and the team!
