External Georgian stateliness relaxes into contemporary interiors and a tranquil atmosphere at this stunning Devon country house. Licensed for civil ceremonies and boasting 80 lush acres of grounds in addition to the myriad indoor spaces, Deer Park makes a fine exclusive-use wedding venue that promises endless photo opportunities and a big day you’ll never forget.
Weddings are this venue’s forte, so whether you know exactly what you want or need some help planning your special day, staff are on hand to provide whatever you need. In summer, knots can be tied amid the wild flowers of its secret garden while pheasants roam and bees buzz among the hawthorn bushes, while underfloor heating means the light and bright Orangery is a handsome year-round option for ceremonies and wedding breakfasts.
As well as the pristine lawns, fragrant flowers and serene riverside trails that make up the estate’s parkland, there’s also an exceptionally romantic luxury treehouse set within a cluster of beautiful old oaks. This secluded structure features a log burner, roll top bath and a wrap-around balcony making it perfect for couples to enjoy on their first night together as a married couple. There are also plenty of accommodation options for the rest of your guests too, including a playhouse, a luxury shed and house and garden rooms.
Deer Park has it all, so as well as a stunning backdrop for your big day and all the amenities you could want, you and your guests can rest assured that you will eat and drink well too. The estate grows its own fruit, herbs and vegetables designs its menus with providence in mind. That said, couples have the freedom to ask for anything, so if you’re set on wild cherry compote to complement your wedding cake, it can be made to order for you. The venue also sports its very own wood-fired clay oven and possibly the biggest outdoor dining table you will ever lay your eyes on, so if it’s an outdoor feast you’re after, you won’t be disappointed.
