Weekend weddings

Relax, you have plenty of time

Our weekend weddings are an increasingly popular option, especially if you and/or your guests are travelling a long way. Give yourselves time to catch up with each of your guests.  Time to create memories that will last a lifetime.  A relaxed weekend surrounded by friends and family; sounds great, doesn’t it?

Meet up the day before!

Most weekend weddings meet up the day before the wedding.  Afternoon tea is a lovely option to start to your wedding weekend, before sorting out any final wedding preparations such as setting up fun games on the lawn.  Evenings tend to be an informal affair, a few pre-dinner drinks, perhaps followed by steak and chips or lasagne in our bar/lounge.

On your wedding day

If you’re getting married with us, we have four licensed rooms for you to choose from for your Ceremony.  We also offer the option of an outdoor ceremony, offering unique and breathtaking views across the Tamar Valley, should the weather be kind!

Extending your stay

Some weekend wedding couples prefer to extend celebrations the day after the wedding, enjoying a leisurely breakfast together, opening cards and gifts, then perhaps a walk on Dartmoor, followed by a picnic lunch.  Again, it’s giving you precious time to spend with friends and family.

Planning made easy

We’re more than happy to help you plan the whole weekend and to organise any activities. With both the Tamar Valley and Dartmoor on our doorstep, there’s no shortage of country pursuits to keep everyone happy!

We do ask you to commit to filling all 16 bedrooms on your wedding day, but you have complete flexibility how many rooms you take the night before your wedding, and the night afterwards.
