On a few limited occasions each year, the Trust welcomes couples to use Sharpham House and its wonderful gardens exclusively for their weddings.
Before and after the wedding, you and up to 35 of your guests can be accommodated in comfortable bedrooms among relaxed surroundings, while you can choose from five elegant rooms in this Georgian Palladian mansion designed in 1770 by Sir Robert Taylor, all licensed to hold your civil wedding ceremony.
Many couples choose to hold their ceremony on our famous feature: our spectacular, oval, cantilevered staircase, rising three floors beneath a domed ceiling and lantern skylight.
You may choose to hire a marquee or a tipi to put on our lawns, enabling you to seat up to 200 guests for your reception.
Your reception and drinks can be taken in the tranquil setting of lush lawns and gardens with breathtaking views of the River Dart and gorgeous natural scenery making a fabulous and memorable backdrop for your wedding and your photographs.
Our secluded Bathing House - a perfect, simple, romantic place to stay - is situated close to Sharpham House, at water's edge on the River Dart. Ask us about hiring this incredible hideaway for your honeymoon.
Directions by car:
From Totnes, follow the A381 towards Kingsbridge, turning off left for Ashprington. In Ashprington, turn left at the Durant Arms and continue past the church on your left. We are 1 mile from the village, through the Sharpham stone pillars, and down the hill following the signs to Sharpham House.
Directions by public transport:
Please note that the venue can be reached by boat from North Quay which is located at the bottom of the vineyard.
However, this is all dependent on the time of the year and tides (2 hours either side of high tide). Totnes train station is a 10 minute drive away.
