Celebrate at Dartington Hall
Dartington Hall is the perfect choice for couples looking for a unique and romantic setting for the most memorable day of their lives. One of the most unusual wedding venues in Devon, Dartington Hall combines an idyllic setting with meticulous attention to detail.
The most memorable wedding venue in Devon
At the heart of our extensive 1200-acre estate, surrounded by exquisite gardens, a group of magnificent Grade 1 listed buildings encircle a spectacular courtyard. This is Dartington Hall, the largest medieval house in the West of England – and possibly one of the most romantic wedding venues in the South West. From romantic country walks through woodland and along the picturesque river Dart, to unforgettable receptions in our historic buildings and gardens, Dartington Hall is perhaps the loveliest of all Devon wedding venues and our experienced team are committed to ensuring that every aspect of your special day is one you will cherish forever.
Dartington Hall outshines other Devon wedding venues for sheer romance. Civil wedding venues can be lacking in atmosphere, but marriage in a medieval mansion will always be magical.
Oak beams and whitewashed walls make the Upper Gatehouse a tranquil setting for your wedding. This light and airy civil wedding venue allows over 120 of your guests to share in the ceremony comfortably, in beautiful surroundings.
For larger wedding of up to 250 guests, choose the option to take your vows under the stunning beams of the high-ceilinged Great Hall, followed by a delicious wedding breakfast in a gorgeous marquee in the Private Garden.
