Thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. From the moment we saw the venue and met you, we knew this was the place to hold our wedding and we were not disappointed. Everyone is commenting on what a wonderful day it was and how beautiful the venue is. The food was incredible and people are still talking about it.
Thank you also to you Julie. You helped the day go perfectly and made me feel very special and very calm too. Which helped me enjoy every second.
Nicola and Jason, May 2014
You gave us the best wedding possible. All the way from booking you have been brilliant and helped with advice. You were understanding and we knew you wouldn’t let us down.
The whole day was just perfect. The room looked amazing, everyone worked so hard to make it a truly wonderful and magical day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for making Charlotte’s and Andy’s wedding day so wonderful.
We have heard nothing but great praise from all the guests that attended about how fab the wedding was, and this was in no small part to the meticulousness of your work.
Clearly, the venue is stunning, albeit even more enhanced when the sum is shining:).
As far as I am concerned though what was even more stunning was the quality of service that you and your staff provided. The day just seemed to whizz by and this was simply because I did not have to worry about a single thing and had a smile on my face all day long.
Because of the rain you imperceptibly changed the procedures from an outside to an indoor reception and juggled the changing seating and serving arrangements most expertly.
The food was outstanding and was a real highlight that everyone commented on: send our thanks to your kitchen staff and chef.
Your serving staff were fab: they could not do enough and I heard one even stayed beyond her finishing time because she was enjoying the wedding so much. They were ever present to attend to everyones needs but not at all obtrusive: I can just remember plates coming in and out and drinks being served as if by (pixie!) magic!
Having organised corporate functions myself at work I know that a completely seamless event is both very difficult to achieve and is sometimes not appreciated by those attending: be assured I have the greatest admiration for your efforts and that of your staff.
I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you and your hotel: the accolades you have won are completely justified.
I hope Charlotte and Andy will establish a tradition of coming back in the future to remember the great day we all had.
Keep up the good work and all the best for the future.
Charlotte’s Dad, May 2014
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding the amazing day that it was.
Scott - the food was incredible and lots of people said it was the best food they'd had at a wedding. As massive foodies, this was exactly what we wanted from our wedding!
Julie - the day ran without a hitch and that was in no small part down to you.
We would recommend The Horn of Plenty to anyone and wish we could get married again.
Katie and Sean, March 2014
Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Accommodation wonderful, wedding organised and carried out to perfection. Setting beautiful.
The only thing better than the food and the accommodation was the staff, an absolute credit and we cannot sing their praises loud enough.
You have made our day and our wedding. Thank you to all at your wonderful Country House Hotel!
Lynzi and Colin, March 2014
Rachel and I would just like to express our gratitude for all your hard work to make our day special. So many people commented on the setting, the staff and the food. All of which were fantastic. Thank you!
Rachel and Neil, January 2014
We would just like to drop you and your fantastic team a line and say thank you so, so much for an amazing, wonderful and perfect day. The welcome, service, food, total hospitality along with a beautiful, comfortable venue with stunning views made our day so complete!
You so deserve the fantastic reputation you have. We will continue to blow your trumpet and return as soon as we can!
Alice’s Mum, September 2013
Words cannot express how amazing our special day was at your venue. The whole weekend exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived on the Friday, you and your team were more than welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests commented on how beautiful the house is and how exceptional the food was.
Julie, your organisation meant the day ran perfectly; neither of us were under any pressure and we enjoyed the day immensely! A BIG thank you.
We are already planning when we will come back for our first anniversary! A heartfelt thank you!
Richard and Laura Syree, August 2013
The day was amazing. We could not have asked for anything more and could not have found a better venue. You were so helpful and lovely to work with, and also so flexible and accommodating to our last minute needs. Many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the venue is, and how amazing the food was. We will be back!
Helen and Dean, July 2013
We would like to thank you and your staff for giving us the best wedding day we could have wished for. You looked after our guests and ourselves like’ lords and ladies’ from the moment we arrived until we left.
The staff were very courteous and attentive, yet never in the way. Our food was exquisite, we cannot praise your chefs highly enough for both taste and presentation. Specialities prepared for our dairy intolerant guest, over every course were a real credit to your team.
The ambience of your hotel, the staff, the food, the views makes you well worthy of the ‘Best Wedding Venue in Devon for 2013’ in our opinion. Thank you very much
Debs and Phil, May 2013
Dear Julie and the “Angels from The Horn of Plenty”
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for helping us have a wedding far beyond our expectations.... and let’s be honest, our expectations were pretty high in the first place.
We were fully aware the food would be second to none. What we hadn’t banked upon was the way you and your charming staff picked up any loose strands in our planning (eg the presentation of the sweet station) and sorted it all out without even coming up to us!
All our guests from London now have the impression that everyone in Devon is like your staff. Ha! All evening they were saying how polished the service was and how beautiful the hotel is, with attention to detail in the tiniest of things. Oh and an ace wedding cocktail.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Alex and Simon, April 2013
"The best day ever. From the first meeting with Julie, nothing was too much trouble for her or any of her colleagues. All the staff were friendly whilst remaining professional at all times.
We were married in the library which was the right size and beautifully prepared for us.
The food was simply superb - perfectly cooked, good sized portions and the presentation was excellent. They even catered really well for our children.
And to make it even better it was excellent value and no where near as expensive as our guests may have believed!"
Steve and Kerry, December 2012
"Thank you all for making sure that our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every way..... The service was exceptional from start to finish, the food was out of this world (a fact confirmed again and again by our guests), the location and the setting was stunning, the attention to detail was incredible.
If we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing. Without exception, all our guests proclaimed it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
What more could we ask for? Many, many thanks"
Paul and Abi, July 2012
"Thank you Julie and all the staff for making our day more special than we could have ever imagined. From the day we chose The Horn, Julie has always been there to help with every enquiry. Our guests could not believe how beautiful the house was and also the views... it really is a gem!
I cannot put into words how lovely the food was.... many people said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff....
There was nothing about our wedding day we would have changed, it was perfect"
Emma and Dylan, July 2012
We’ve just arrived home to a letter box of thank you letters and cards from our friends and family, received before we have even had the opportunity to send our thank you’s to them for our wedding presents! If it wasn’t clearer in our mind the messages certainly reminded us of what a truly spectacular event the Horn Of Plenty put on for us and our quests.
From the very outset Simon and I fell in love with the Horn of Plenty as a venue for our wedding. A perfectly English country home with a magnificent backdrop, a venue with true elegance and style. Over the last year as we have imagined and dreamed of what the day could be like we have explained our wishes and needs to the team, unexpectedly dropped in to discuss, and always made to feel welcome. We have always been met with flexibility and creativity on all of our requirements, ever changing and moving, you guys always kept up with us. (Sometimes you were ahead of us!) Great ideas came from you all on wine, champagne, after dinner drinks, menu, menu and menu again, falconry, entertainment, fireworks, getting ready on the day, florists, marquee supply, Friday night send off, itinerary, to mention a few....
The day went without a hiccup, Simon and I couldn’t believe how well it all flowed. Even our guests have marvelled on the efficiency and friendliness of all of the team. Personally we’d like to thank Sharon for her attention throughout our wedding experience with the Horn of Plenty. Thank you also, to the chefs (Stuart, Peter and team) who did a wonderful job on delivering to the mouth watering menu. I believe a few of our guests even personally thanked them on the night for such a great experience.
We really felt a uniquely cosy feeling for such a massive occasion and that is down to the effort and dedication of the team working pretty much all day and night to deliver beyond our expectations.
We are so pleased to have received an exceptional service throughout the preparation and on the Wedding day and would highly recommend the venue and the Horn of Plenty team .
For us it was the wedding we dreamed of and if given the opportunity to do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing.
See you all very soon,
Simon, Victoria and Sydney
