About Huntsham Court

Huntsham, Nr. Tiverton / Taunton
Devon, EX16 7NA


Always rented for Exclusive Use we pride ourselves on no hidden charges, no corkage, flexibility and privacy. The house is rented as Self Catering but if you don't know where to start we have a great network of suppliers, housekeeprs and butlers and inlcude withinthe price 5 hrs of our event managers time. However, you have the freedom to bring your own caterers and team if you prefer. Either way you can do anything from not lift a finger with a full compliment of staff to doing everything yourself with just friends and family -  It's all about choice.


You probably have a much better idea of how you want your wedding celebration to look and feel than we do. Our guiding principle is always ‘your day your way’ which is why we believe our guests recommend Huntsham Court and come back time after time.

All furniture can be moved and used and the house is totally flexible to meet yuor needs and style. If you want to get married in the dining room, have dinner in the drawing room and dance the night away in the great hall - no problem – it is your day after all and we are here to do as much or as little as you want.


Huntsham Court is a Baronial Devon Mansion set in 5 ½ incredibly photogenic acres in the beautiful rolling Devon countryside. The House has 40 large bedrooms and suites which can sleep up to 92 people. We can hold events for up to 130 people. We have licenses for Alcohol (you can organsie a free or pay bar), a late entertainment license (for Dj sets or bands) and Civil Ceremonies (indoor and outside) or you may want to get married in the pretty All Saints Church half way down the drive or outside in the beautiful grounds. It's all about luxury, value, choice and good old fashioned quality time together with your nearest and dearest in privacy and glamour.


We have an AMAZING suppliers network we have built ranging from a fish and chip van at the front door to 5 star silver service banquets. But you are welcome to bring your own suppliers or go totally DIY self catered if you'd rather. When it comes to activities we have everything practically on call: spa (masage, beauty, hair), atcion (fencing, archery, shooting, cookery school) or just hanging out with what the hosue has in-house (tennis, croquet, table tennis, dvd library, board games, house stereo, 5 aside pitch). Options galore!


Huntsham Court is located just 12 minutes from both Junction 27 of the M5 and Tiverton Parkway mainline station (2hrs fast train to London). We have wonderful grounds, ample carparking and wonderful nearby pubs.

Our absolutely amazing wedding
Venue Service

By Natalie Higgs, on 08 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

Thank you once again for everything you did to help make our wedding absolutely amazing. Your patience and calmness was exactly what a fussy and perfectionist bride, like myself, needed. THANK YOU! I also have to mention the staff as they were all amazing- so friendly, helpful and welcoming- all of our guests have commented on this also so please let them know. In particular, Colin, who couldn't do enough for us all! He is a real asset to your team. The Higgs/Siddons clan were very grateful for his help. Huntsham Court itself needs a mention too. The building is just breathtaking and you have decorated the rooms so beautifully and in keeping with the house. It has that 'wow' factor which I felt the moment I first drove up the drive way and knew straight away that it had to be my wedding venue. I love it and didn't want to leave! You should all be very proud of the venue you run as it's perfect. It's obvious that a lot of hard work goes into keeping the house to the standard it is so well done to you all! I hope thr other weddings went well this week. Love from Mr and Mrs Siddons

Wow Perfect Venue and Team
Venue Service

By Lorena Parsano, on 08 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017

Wow we can't believe it's all over. It is hard to believe that 18 months ago this was all a dream. When a friend of a friend told Lorena about this amazing venue she was getting married at, and two weeks later we got engaged we knew we had to visit. From the first visit with you we knew it was the one. We hadn't seen any other venues but knew we didn't need to! What a special place - there is definitely magic in the air. It is so obvious that Chris and Damian both love the house - with all the little touches and improvements you've made over the past 18 months like the gorgeous French doors in the yellow room. we also love that Damian bought the flowers from Chelsea flower show recently in the dovecote - absolutely gorgeous. Clair - what can we say other than a million times thank you. You've been amazing through all the planning - so patient with Lorena's millions of questions and with so much great advice about how things should work. On the day you made it all so seamless We couldn't have asked for more and are so grateful. Please pass our thanks to all the staff who worked to make it such an amazing weekend - we had so many compliments on how great they were in making it an easy, yet homely experience. Lots of our friends and family questioned why a girl from London and a boy from Yorkshire were getting married in Devon. As they drove up the drive and then continued into the stunning house, they knew why. We had the best experience at Huntsham and lots of people said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We agree!!! The Naylors xx

Perfect Venue for my Daughter
Venue Service

By Danny Hasset, on 08 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2017

Natalie, my daughter undertook an extensive search of potential wedding locations from Cornwall to Somerset, but once she had seen Huntsham Court her heart was set. I have to admit I was sceptical, as the majority of the arrangements were then our responsibility, however, this flexibility aligned with the superb location enabled Natalie to plan her perfect wedding, which fortunately came to fruition between 9th & 11th June 2017. The care you have taken to restore and update Huntsham Court and the grounds is a credit to you, all our guests were aghast at the beauty and stature of the venue. The majority of the guests said it was the best wedding or weekend they had experienced, some including their own wedding! This is a consequence of the unique offer you have, where a beautiful location is provided, but in parallel, it is a blank canvas, as the hosts of the party can select suppliers and contractors to meet their exact needs to ensure their guests thoroughly enjoy themselves. On the Monday following the wedding I spoke to Natalie and asked what she would have changed from the weekend and I’m pleased to say she replied “Absolutely nothing” which as Father of the Bride is just what you want to hear. I’m so pleased we found Huntsham Court and thank you and your team for the unique wedding experience my family will remember for the rest of their lives.

Got to be seen to be believed, AMAZING!
Venue Service

By Keya Johnson, on 09 Feb 2015

Huntsham Court looks great on their website but int he flesh it is brilliant! Posh enough for all the photos and relatives wanting somewhere fancy, but relaxed enough you really feel at home and can kick back and relaxed. Formal when you need it but totally happy to throw a disco in the Great Hall. When it comes to budget too it's brilliant, as you have so much freedom you can spend exactly where you want to, with no hidden or annoying extra charges. The house team is friendly, efficient and really goes the extra mile too - feels like your very own personal team. We thought it would be brilliant - it was even better beyond our wildest dreams. Thanks to everyone! Memories made forever.

The Perfect Venue
Venue Service

By Nadia Myerscough, on 09 Feb 2015

The location is totally idyllic, with not a blot on the landscape. I knew it was the perfect venue before I’d stepped into the house. I love the way it sits in the land, no traffic noise, gorgeous scenery, lovely walks to be had and beautiful gardens. The house is a delight, the way the rooms flow with a level of grandeur that is just right. It is dramatic but not stuffy and those amazing, spacious bedrooms are so full of character it really feels like a country house on a grand scale. Words cannot describe what a totally fabulous time was had by one and all this weekend. Huntsham Court was the perfect setting for our wedding and will leave us with memories to be treasured for ever!

When we stumbled upon Huntsham Court we knew we had struck gold. Dripping with Downton-esque glamour but with a refreshing ethos.

Your very own manor house!
Venue Service

By Julie Badman, on 18 Nov 2012

Huntsham Court is a stunning venue but what makes it stand out is that the owners effectively give you the keys for the weekend and the house becomes your own. You can decorate, cater and party exactly how you like. It was the only venue we found which enabled us to have our wedding just how we wanted. The owners are wonderful- charming, helpful and thoughtful. They have a fantastic list of recommended suppliers although there are no restrictions on who you can use and you can also choose to self cater - we did a mix. I know that Huntsham Court will soon be renowned as one of the top wedding venues in the country, and so it deserves to be!
