Welcome to exclusive use East Devon wedding venue, Escot House, a stunning Georgian stately home surrounded by 220 acres of tranquil parkland. Escot is the privately owned home of the Kennaway family, who have lived here since 1794.
As a setting for weddings, Escot offers a perfect combination of light-filled rooms, gardens and terrace. You will enjoy stunning views over the parkland with its lake, lawns, and wonderful 'champion' trees. Escot offers the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography.
Our catering is in-house and boasts an excellent reputation; we use locally sourced produce and trusted local suppliers and cater for all dietary requirements. As we are a private venue, we can react with total flexibility to our couple’s specific wishes and we offer outstanding value for all bookings, large or small.
The support staff at our venue are highly experienced and several have been with us for many years. Your booking includes the services of our wedding organiser who will help you to ensure you have the day you have dreamed of. After more than 20 years as a wedding venue, we understand how important it is to provide a supportive environment which allows you to relax and enjoy your day with absolute confidence. We can help you with as much or as little as you like.
Escot is licensed for Civil Ceremonies, so you can say your vows in one of our elegant and spacious day rooms.
Your wedding reception can be as formal or as informal as you want it to be. We offer three options: a formal wedding breakfast with a full waiter service, a seated wedding buffet, or a standing buffet with waiters circulating with canapes with some seating still provided.
We want your guests to enjoy their day and will help you organise entertainment for children and adults alike. We have many onsite activities such as Segway, archery and clay shoots if you want a reception with a difference!
Should you wish to view our venue please get in touch with us to arrange a viewing appointment. Call Jo on 01404 819155 to make your appointment.

Everything we asked for was possible
I want to say a massive thank you to Lucy, Jo and all of the team at Escot for making our wedding on the 26th May so special! Right from the first visit we were sure that Escot was where we wanted to get married, the house, the gardens and view from the terrace are just beautiful. Lucy and Jo are so calm, professional and helpful, everything we asked for was possible and it always felt as though we had the freedom to make our day exactly what we wanted. The day ran so smoothly, had all the personal touches we wanted, the food was amazing and our friends and family commented how personal, relaxed and enjoyable it all was. Thank you so much for everything!Sent on 26/06/2018
