About Downe Spa wedding venue

Downe provides a lovely location and lovely facilities for a wedding.

Located on the Hartland Peninsula in North Devon, Downe provides a wedding venue set in over ten acres of landscaped grounds with beautiful views over the Atlantic looking west and to Lundy Island looking north. We are nearly half a mile away from our nearest neighbours in any direction and our gardens are bordered by open fields and woods and look west and north over the Atlantic.

Downe has the following locations for a civil wedding:

•The Atlantic Room – a split-level room with seating for up to one hundred and fifty guests for the wedding ceremony.
•The Conservatory – a large Edwardian style conservatory with seating for up to fifty guests for the wedding ceremony.
•The Garden Room – a small stone built folly in the gardens that provides both a licensed location for those wanting to get married in the open air and an intimate location for weddings with seating for up to ten guests.

The Atlantic Room can seat up to one hundred for dinner and the Conservatory can seat up to forty for dinner. For larger receptions, the grounds provide a number of idyllic locations for a marquee reception either with views west over the Atlantic and north up to Lundy Island or into picturesque woodland.

Accommodation is available at Downe in eight luxury cottages with a total of twelve double bedrooms each of which is en suite. The cottages form a delightful courtyard setting with the Conservatory and Downe House.

Downe is located within a mile of St Nectan’s Church in Stoke. Known as “the Cathedral of North Devon”, because of the height of its bell tower, this thirteenth century church provides a beautiful location for a church wedding.

Wedding Packages at Downe
Each of our Foxglove, Poppy, Iris and Lilly Wedding Packages include two nights accommodation in the eight cottages (i.e. the night before the wedding and the night following the wedding) so that in every case the wedding party has exclusive use of the public areas at Downe, the cottages and the courtyard. This ensures that every wedding at Downe is a very intimate affair for family and friends and this exclusivity is at the heart of Downe’s appeal as a wedding location.

Additional nights’ accommodation in the cottages are available and this is particularly helpful for the principal members of the wedding party who often find it useful to spend a few days at Downe immediately before the wedding.

Civil Weddings at Downe
One of the advantages of Downe is our ability to cope with the vagaries of the English weather. For many couples the perfect wedding is a wedding in the open air but the problem is the risk (even in June and July) of bad weather on the wedding day. Downe provides the ideal solution. The wedding is booked on the basis that the civil ceremony will take place in the Atlantic Room or in the Conservatory. However, if the weather forecast is good the day before the wedding, the bride and groom can take the decision to hold the wedding in the Garden Room with the guests seated in the open air.

•The hire of Downe for a Civil Wedding with up to one hundred and fifty seated guests at the wedding ceremony.
