Gidleigh Park, in Newton Abbot, Devon, England, is a tranquil moorland manor, heaven in Devon, ideal for a beautiful wedding ceremony. After a short drive from the idyllic village of Chagford, you turn the final corner, and Gidleigh Park stands before you. It sits nestled in the trees against the backdrop of Dartmoor National Park. Your guests will greet you with clouds of confetti as you walk down towards the River Teign.

Facilities and Capacity

While the children enjoy lawn games in the open space, you and your guests can relax on the terrace with some champagne overlooking Gidleigh Park's grounds and out onto Meldon Moor. As for the ceremony, the Pavilion thatched cottage is a beautiful backdrop for sharing your vows. The wood-paneled drawing room with large bay windows overlooking the gardens is another perfect location for an indoor celebration. After photographs, your wedding party can settle into the Nattadon room, which comfortably seats 50 guests between two interconnecting dining rooms. The Executive Chef, Michael Wignall, and his team will craft the wedding breakfast.

After breakfast, you can relax in the drawing room for the speeches while enjoying coffee and petit fours. Your party can move to the Hall to enjoy music, dancing, and entertainment to continue the festivities.
