It really felt like home!
By Tara & Sam, on 21 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018
We had our wedding at ANRAN over the bank holiday weekend and it was perfect in every way. Mike & and his team, and Hayley and her team at CRU catering, made sure every detail was taken care of and looked after us like family. We had our family and friends stay on site in the house and barns and every single person commented on how relaxed they felt, how well taken care of they were and how stunning the place was. As bride and groom, we felt the same way and it was so special to be able to host everyone in such a relaxed way. It really felt like home!
The wedding day was incredible. We used so many different areas of the venue - the lily pond, the courtyard, the glasshouse, the hut and the fire pit - and each area was beautiful and full of character in its own way.
ANRAN is a very special place. We knew it was the perfect place to hold our wedding, but it exceeded all our expectations. We can't wait to come back and stay again! Thank you!

We could not have dreamt of a better wedding venue

We could not have dreamt of a better wedding venue...
My new husband and I recently got married at ANRÁN and it was everything we had ever wished for and exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The whole establishment is decorated and presented to a very high standard and it truly looks incredible. We love Mike, Edwin and their team, they were just outstanding and love to have a laugh... which is just what you need when things get a bit stressful setting up for your big day. They could not have been any more attentive or helpful and we thank them very much for making our experience so special and memorable. All of our guests were amazed by the breathtaking venue and setting and it provided us with the most perfect day. We truly loved every minute of our stay at ANRÁN and being married at the end of it all was just the cherry on top of the cake. Thank you for everything your team and venue will never be forgotten and hopefully we will return again soon!
GO FO IT!

If you are thinking of staying at ANRÁN, go for it. We celebrated our wedding there and there are simply no words to describe what a spectacular place this is. The rooms are gorgeous, Mike and Edwin (along with the team who look after ANRÁN) are some of the loveliest people you will meet and the location is just so incredibly peaceful. Whether you want to spend your days lounging down by the lake, curled up next to the fire, swimming in the pool or walking through the sublime countryside - there is something for everyone at ANRÁN, young and old alike.
Thank you Mike and Edwin for creating such a perfect haven...we loved every moment and have memories we will treasure forever! "
Unforgettable day for us and all of our guests!
By Becky and Kevin, on 21 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017
We knew we wanted a venue where our extended family and friends could stay together and celebrate not just a wedding day but a week of two families coming together. We got to spend time together putting all our personal touches on the venue in the days leading up to the wedding, interspersed with lounging by the pool and exploring the beautiful Devon countryside.
Everyone was blown away by ANRÁN’s beautiful decor and the attention Mike and Edwin have put into making it such a beautiful venue for weddings and any gatherings of family and friends.
We enjoyed the creative flexibility ANRÁN offered us. The glass house, courtyard and "the hut" were all such stunning venues but we enjoyed the freedom of putting our personal touch on them all.
We'd highly recommend ANRÁN for both weddings and as a beautiful and luxurious place to stay. It truly made our wedding an unforgettable day for both us and all of our guests.
We fell in love with ANRAN...
By Mariko & Owen, on 21 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 19 Mar 2016
We fell in love with ANRÁN as soon as we came to visit as it was exactly what we had in mind for the weekend-long
celebration we wanted for our wedding. Rather than have the celebrations over in a day, we wanted a place that we could truly relax and spend time with friends and family for several days. Mike, Edwin and their team were so supportive over the whole process and allowed (and encouraged) us to be creative (thanks for letting us out a boat full of ice and champagne bottles in the glasshouse!).
Their attention to every detail is coupled with laid-back attitude that made us feel instantly welcome and at home. We had the time to enjoy every part of the house, stylish barns and grounds over the weekend, and our guests loved the atmosphere and setting overlooking the
beautiful South Devon hills. Our one regret is not booking a couple more days afterwards to unwind after everyone else had gone home...
We’d recommend ANRAN and Tidwell Farm to anyone in a heartbeat: The beds are insanely comfortable, the rooms are beautifully decorated to hotel standards, and Mike and Edwin are the perfect hosts. Thank you!
It really is a place of absolute beauty.

It really is a place of absolute beauty and relaxation set in the most stunning countryside. Mike and Edwin – possibly two of the loveliest people you will meet - are so accommodating, talented, funny and friendly and I believe they instantly understood the type of people we were, which was really important to us. ANRÁN was perfect for us, our family and friends."
It was a truly fantastic day...

ANRÁN was the perfect venue for us.
The outside courtyard area was ideal for
pre-meal drinks, and a great space for people to mingle. Once everyone entered the Glass House for the meal, it blew them away. The venue looked spectacular and the space was very
conducive to people chatting and having a
Beautiful Bohemian Venue
By Christina & Chrysanthos, on 21 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Jun 2015
The location made you forget about work and stress.The venue itself offered us the ability to accommodate a lot of our guests and at the same time provide different options for the multiple activities we wanted to have over the three day weekend. Mike and Edwin also brought our - out of the ordinary - ideas for the event to life. They visualised with us how to transform the farm into what turned out to be a beautiful bohemian venue.
Forget the country house this is something special
By Brooke and Peter, on 23 Nov 2015
Pete proposed to me in December 2013 at Lake Geneva Switzerland.
In December 2014,we were invited to a 30th birthday party at Anran. My friend knows our passion for interiors and suggested we book a room as we would ‘LOVE IT’!
We arrived at Anran and rushed though the courtyard into a converted barn on the other side. Wohhhhh we were amazed. The restoration of the building was incredible. White washed ceiling beams inlayed with rusty corrugated metal. Heated concrete floors, original stone walls, eclectic furniture and the smell we just loved it all! After the pre-party drinks we ventured into THE GLASS HOUSE. We walked in and looked at each and other and said" this is where we want to get married". It really is a place of absolute beauty and relaxation set in the most stunning countryside.
Mike and Edwin – Possibly two of the loveliest people you will meet. Both are so accommodating, talented, funny and friendly and I believe they instantly understood the type of people we were which was really important to us. Mike had some great tips from his experience in the restaurant business and tried to encourage us to come up with a plan of action which was actually very helpful.
Netha – Netha is brilliant so lovely and incredibly organised. During the weekend all the people behind Anran were politely in the background but available when required -it was the perfect balance.
We want to thank you all for one of the best weekends of our lives. Anran was perfect for us, our family and friends.
We hope to see you all soon,
Brooke and Pete xxx

My partner and I had the pleasure of attending a friends wedding reception at Tidwell farm and we were speechless the moment we walked in. The barn in which they hold the reception is spacious, light, simple yet beautiful!
Although we did not stay in the b&b we had a a sneak peek at the rooms and the main house and we were blown away. I would LOVE to have my wedding reception here!!!
Oh My Goodness!! Absolutely Amazing
By Kate Krunch, on 06 Nov 2015
I stayed here a couple of weeks ago to attend a family wedding. However, I am quite fussy by nature and a total clean freak so it takes a lot for me to be impressed but impressed I most certainly am with Anran...Simply put, this place in perfect in every way.
Firstly, the people. Mike and Netha - lovely, kind and extremely welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they looked after us so well. Really friendly and knowledgeable.
Secondly, the converted barns are self contained and beautifully designed. There is a sitting area, kitchen, bedroom (with roll top bath) and shower area. Immaculate and spotlessly clean in every aspect. The Molton Brown products and shower were a treat to use even down to the water pressure which was spot on (it's little things like this that make a stay away from home perfect). All in all, it is clear that a lot of thought, effort and time has been invested by Mike and Edwin in getting things just right for their guests.
There is an excellent wifi connection too.
The immediate location and setting is peaceful and tranquil but it is also close to Totnes, Newton Abbott and Dartmoor - so another tick in the box.
It truly is a luxury place to stay and guests are made to feel welcome.
We are looking forward to returning to Anran the next time we visit Devon and hopefully, if we are allowed, we will bring our two beagles, Porthos and Aramis who I am sure will love it just as much as we did. It is good to know that Mike and Edwin are dog lovers too.
Thank you Mike, Edwin and Netha for everything and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
