About Lewtrenchard Manor

Lewdown, Okehampton
Devon, EX20 4PN

Set in the heart of Devon, a wedding at Lewtrenchard Manor is like no other. The ornate plasterwork of the ceilings, the stained glass windows, the profusion of ornament and carving all contribute to ensuring the day is one that will be remembered by everyone as very, very special.

This house, steeped in history, is large enough to be imposing, yet not so grand as to be unwelcoming. Stepping over the ancient slate floor in the impressive hallway one immediately feels very much at home.

The elevated setting of the house provides splendid views over the magnificent gardens and peaceful parkland beyond. Guests always appreciate the parkland, especially a stroll down “Madam’s Walk”, an avenue of splendid Beech trees, as well as walks around the heavily wooded lake and along the banks of the River Lew.

Whether it’s a traditional or modern, relaxed or formal, large or small, winter or summer wedding, the dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator is on hand to guide you through the planning of your perfect day, from start to finish.

The Head Chef also provides a very personal service and the opportunity to tailor a bespoke wedding menu to your specific requirements.

From a day wedding with an intimate ceremony on the Gallery followed by a Champagne reception on the lawn to exclusive hire of the manor house with a gastronomic feast; at Lewtrenchard Manor your wedding is guaranteed to be unique, original and everything you’ve always wished it would be.

• The Ballroom: a room that has to be seen to be believed with ornate plasterwork and high ceilings. • 14 luxurious bedrooms each with unique character, whether it be burnished oak panelling, exquisite ornamental plasterwork, rich fabrics, antique furniture or superb views. • Gardens with pretty streams, ponds, fountains and statuary and the extensive walled garden – perfect for some truly ‘organic’ photographs. • A wonderfully colourful history and home to the desk where Reverend Sabine Gould composed ‘Onward Christian Soldiers’. • Purple Carrot, a private dining room with an exclusive view of the chefs in the kitchen – ideal for a pre-wedding family dinner. • Falconry displays available in the extensive grounds giving your wedding a unique and entertaining experience.

The best day off our lives
Venue Service

By Cindy and James, on 30 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

James and I got married the Lewtrenchard Manor on the 26th May 2018. We were due to be married in their Courtyard but unfortunately it poured with rain and our ceremony was moved upstairs to their library. Vicky, our wedding co-ordinator managed everything quickly and professionally. Vicky had put up with us changing our minds in the menu and with all our questions - she was absolutely amazing and a real credit to the manor. Our day was made extra special just knowing that she had it all in control.

hard work and attention to detail
Venue Service

By Katherine and David, on 11 Feb 2010

We truly believe that our day would not have been so perfect had it not been for all your hard work and attention to detail. Without exception all the staff were very attentive to everyone’s needs indeed many guests commented on the excellent service provided. Special mention must go to Jason and his team for the fantastic food served, again resulting in many comments from guests on the day.

A wonderful, memorable event.

By Eve and Andrew, on 11 Feb 2010

Thank you for making our Big Day a wonderful, memorable event. It goes without saying that the grounds and the Manor itself were immaculate, the rooms beautifully prepared and the marquee presented exactly as requested. Without doubt our expectations were exceeded. We would not hesitate to recommend Lewtrenchard Manor to anyone considering holding a wedding reception at this most magnificent Devon Manor House and it will always be a very special place for the two of us.
