Location is everything at this remarkable wedding venue in Devon. Set in its own extensive grounds within the Exe Valley, overlooking rolling fields and the winding river, this Grade 1 listed, 11th-century castle wedding venue offers tranquillity and seclusion for your wedding day.
When it comes to tying the knot, Bickleigh Castle offers a choice of breathtaking settings. The Great Hall gives a real taste of the history of the venue, with the original stone fireplace providing a wonderful focal point and huge windows which let the light pour in. There’s plenty of space for 120 guests in this traditional setting too. To make the most of the idyllic location, why not exchange your vows in the great outdoors on the picturesque riverside lawn? With the sun shining, there’s no more romantic place to be.
There are several local churches nearby too, so if you would prefer to organise a religious ceremony, Bickleigh Castle will provide classic Rolls Royces to transport you to and from the venue in style. However, for many couples, a civil ceremony in the Great Hall followed by a blessing in the Saxon Chapel is the best option, and you can still use a Rolls for your arrival at the Italian gates!
The best way to celebrate your newlywed status is with amazing food and drink, and the impressive Banqueting Room provides the ideal setting for both intimate and larger parties alike. Share a fantastic wedding breakfast with your loved ones and wine and dine under the exposed beams for a reception to remember.
When day turns to night, make full use of the Orangery, Mews Sitting Room and elegant Bar and celebrate within the remarkable castle. For larger parties, a marquee in the lawn offers plenty of space, as well as a blank canvas which you can dress in any style you wish to make it your own.
After the festivities have drawn to a close, Bickleigh Castle offers accommodation for up to 40 guests, with 17 thatched cottages within the grounds. The Tudor Bridal Suite is the perfect place for you and your partner to relax and unwind, and boasts an ornately-carved four-poster bed for a great night’s sleep.
