About Higher Holcombe

Higher Holcombe Farm, Holcombe Lane, Ottery St Mary
Devon, EX11 1PQ

Higher Holcombe is set to become one of Devon’s premier exclusive-use  wedding destinations. If your party vibe is festival / relaxed / elegant / country / friendly / outdoors / woodland, then this could be the venue for you! The team behind the scenes know you have your own unique plans and they will help you to put all the pieces together! Higher Holcombe offers 1 or 2 night wedding party choices so you can choose what you would like! You can enjoy the set-up in comfort, decorating the venue exactly the way you have planned.  Savour your day!

Set in the centre of 30 acres of woodland, meadows, orchards, courtyards and gardens is the spacious ‘Old Dairy’, a beautifully renovated party barn.  With uninterrupted countryside views and underfloor heating for year-round comfort, you and your guests will be able to relax and enjoy all aspects of your wedding celebrations in a wonderfully secluded venue. It's really a hidden secret that's sure to delight!

The perfect blank ‘countryside canvas’ for your wedding dreams, there's no end to the possibilities of what you can do with this unique space. Enjoy getting ready in the funky farmhouse. Choose from the breath-taking countryside features for different parts of your day: a thoughtfully positioned hill-top willow 'cathedral' and a woodland glade silver birch 'church'.  Either are perfect for your own dedication, promise or hand-tying ceremony and you'll also have amazing photo opportunities.  You can sip wine in the woodland, picnic in the orchard, have an elegant sit-down meal in The Old Dairy and/or a relaxed vibe 'street food' party by the bonfire.  Make your choice of caterers to prepare and serve your favourite dishes, or, if you wish, include your friends and family and use the commercial kitchen facilities for a home-style party and get everyone involved! There's no corkage and no curfew. This is a party to enjoy!

The party barn ‘The Old Dairy’ seats 80 comfortably for a sit-down meal with room for extra friends during the evening. Accommodation for 10 in the farmhouse (perfect for the main wedding party) is included and there are gorgeous glamping facilities for a further 22 in the five  furnished and spacious Lotus Belle tents set up in the meadow and woodland fringes. You won’t want to leave!

We think you'll be thrilled by what Higher Holcombe can provide. 2019 is their launch year and you can choose from a range of specials that are included if you book by the end of June.  Perhaps you'd like a complimentary woodland gin bar? You could opt for a hill-top welcome prosecco party under the willow 'cathedral' (or anywhere else)!  How about grazing and sharing platters as a relaxed and no-worries supper for your ‘night before’ party of friends and family who are staying to help you decorate? 

One thing is for sure: Higher Holcombe is a gorgeous venue with one simple aim - to enable you to have the perfect wedding celebration - in your own way.
