Full Description
Upton Barn & Walled Garden is an award winning exclusive use wedding venue nestled amidst the beautiful Devon countryside. Providing not one but three unique spaces all under one roof, allowing your wedding party to flow seamlessly from one to the other, and licensed for indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies giving you the freedom to design your wedding day to suit you. The Walled Garden was formerly the Victorian farm kitchen garden and has been reimagined to become the perfect setting for outdoor wedding ceremonies. With manicured lawns and footpaths leading through fragrant flower beds to the beautiful hand-crafted oak arbour that is licensed for civil ceremonies. The lovingly restored Cider Barn is a blend of traditional and contemporary architecture with exposed roof trusses, polished concrete floor and a full height, glazed gable end which bathes the venue in natural light bringing the outside in. This stunning feature provides breath-taking views over the walled garden and Blackdown Hills and an idyllic spot for indoor wedding ceremonies. The Press is a chic and stylish bar which complements the Cider Barn and flows beautifully into the walled garden. It is a laid back, social space where your guests can relax with old and new friends on the built in, modular soft seating or mingle over drinks and canapes in front of the wood burning stove. As you step into The Stable Barn you find yet another warm and inviting venue. Architecturally inspired with elegant lighting, warm timber interiors, well-stocked bar and captivating views across the paddocks; perfect for your wedding breakfast. Upton offers every couple the exclusivity and flexibility to design and create a day entirely unique to you. Our dedicated and passionate team will work with you throughout the planning process and on the day to ensure every detail is considered and executed, allowing you the freedom to relax and enjoy your wedding.

The most perfect day ever! I cannot recommend this venue enough!
Our son was married here on Friday 25th June. The place, both inside & the gardens are just incredible! So well kept, clean & tidy. The most perfect setting for a romantic wedding. It was absolutely COVID compliant - but did not impact on the joy & fun we all had during the day & evening. The staff were also just amazing. They were there for what ever we asked - they were kind & helpful & just so lovely. The food served was the most delicious duck I have ever eaten - it could have been served in a top class restaurant, not a meal for over 50 people. I cannot thank the hosts & staff enough for everything they did for us. I am sure they have hosted lots of weddings, but they truly made us feel like it was an extra special occasion, which they were enjoying as much as we were! The most perfect day ever! I cannot recommend this venue enough!

Absolute Boss Wedding!!
Since the first time we went to view the venue, we knew this was where we wanted to share our amazing day with all our friends and family. The venue had just the right amount of that vintage modern take we were both after. The staff were amazing, friendly and great sense of humour which we found really took the pressure off of all the wedding stresses! The day went without a hitch, well except us ofcourse... A massive shout out to Pickle Shack for their amazing food, they were a must for us and have since been to the open kitchen evening. Upton accommodated all of the special requests we wanted, our memory table, my husbands vintage car and all of our awesome decorations. We can not thank everyone enough, what an amazing day we had! Big love to everyone. Katie and Tim

A Perfect Corona Wedding
We were due to get married at Upton Barn in June 2020 but because of the coronavirus pandemic we had to postpone to October 2020. Throughout the whole experience and the ever-changing guidance we found Upton Barn to be flexible and accommodating with us. We decided to go ahead with the limited number of guests and despite all the rules and regulations Upton Barn made this day so intimate and special for us. After such a rubbish year it was so nice to come together and celebrate happiness (although at a distance). The venue is absolutely stunning, as are the views - makes for some great photos! We are so happy we went with a corona wedding and even happier that we decided to have this at Upton Barn.

A perfect place for a perfect day
We had such an incredible day celebrating our wedding at Upton. The location is stunning, the garden and grounds are beautiful (whatever the Devon weather throws at you) and the lawn and lake make for a perfect back drop to photos. Each room in the venue works beautifully and has its own distinct character whilst linking up to make a really lovely, relaxed space to host the day in. What really makes Upton Barn unique and truly special are the people. Claire, Natalie and the team were wonderful from the very start of the planning process. They listened to all our ideas and were super helpful. They could not have been more supportive, flexible and understanding when Covid restrictions came into place and they helped us navigate through the ever-changing government guidelines with such empathy. Upton is such a special place, just being there makes your heart feel full. The team delivered us the perfect day, even if it was rather different from how we had imagined it might be. We could not recommend Upton enough to any prospective couples – it really is perfect!

Wish I’d never booked this venue!
We made a huge mistake booking Upton Barn as our wedding venue. Felt completely helpless and heartbroken at the poor service we received from Upton Barn. I completely regret booking this venue for our wedding and would not recommend them to other prospective brides/grooms.

SHOCKING ATTITUDE!
My daughter was due to get married at Upton Barn this year and, due to Covid, they had to postpone. As upsetting as this was, the conduct and attitude of Upton Barn made the whole situation so much worse. They would not provide a ‘like for like’ alternative date, stating that Saturday slots would not be given to existing customers as they were being saved for ‘new customers’. My daughter felt she had no choice but to go with a mid-week day but was then told that she would still have to pay the premium weekend rate (over £3,000 more) and pay all remaining charges straight away, some 12 months before the revised wedding date. There was no empathy, or consideration, for what my daughter and her fiancé were going through and it seemed the whole process was about how much money Upton Barn could secure from this pandemic. They say people show their true colours in tough times and Upton Barn certainly did. I would never have believed that a company selling the perfect wedding day fantasy, could be so lacking in compassion, understanding and reason in what has been a very difficult year for everyone. Needless to say, my daughter decided not to stay with Upton Barn and found an amazing wedding venue who have gone out of their way to help accommodate her and achieve the wedding that she has always dreamed of… thank you Quantock Lakes Wedding Venue for changing a terrible experience into one of excitement and joy.
