HOLNE PARK HOUSE
Located on the southern slopes of Dartmoor, River Dart Country Park comprises 90 acres of verdant landscape and immaculate gardens, with the River Dart meandering through the grounds. A backdrop of mature trees and shrubs, cloaked with fragrant blossom in the warmer months, a large lawn, perfect for drinks receptions and al fresco games, and a series of pretty bridges, which make dreamy spots for photographs, make this a heavenly setting for a celebration. Holne Park House, however, is the jewel of this scenic spot.
This magnificent Victorian building has been restored to its former glory, combining opulent interiors with luxurious accommodation. From the ruby walls, wooden panelling and grand paintings of the Ballroom to the cool lemon and cream palette and garden views of the Dawson Room, a rich sense of historic charm is palpable.
The house comprises an endlessly flexible wedding venue with its wide choice of reception rooms and ceremony settings. The garden pavilion is perfect for couples dreaming of tying the knot in the great outdoors. With your guests seated on the lawn before you, you can exchange vows in the beautifully dressed pavilion, with the rushing water and birdsong as your soundtrack.
A range of dining options is available prepared by the in-house chef, using the finest local ingredients. Holne Park House is a magical setting for an evening party with dancing on the oak sprung wooden floor of the Ballroom. Celebrations might spill outside into the walled tea garden, which can be illuminated at nightfall to make an atmospheric setting for a hog roast.
Retire to the bridal suite, with its four-poster bed and views across the parkland, for the wedding night. With nine en-suite bedrooms in the main House plus further accommodation options on-site, your nearest and dearest can stay on, thereby extending the celebrations and taking the opportunity to explore this stirring corner of Dartmoor.
Within the Dartmoor National Park, yet only one mile from the A38 between Exeter and Plymouth near Ashburton, Holne Park House is easy to find and conveniently located. Follow the brown tourist signs to the River Dart Country Park from the Peartree Junction on the A38 by Ashburton.
