About Lower Grenofen

Grenofen, Tavistock
Devon, PL19 9ES

In the heart of a hidden Devon valley lies Ever After, a licensed wedding venue of understated elegance and style for your summer garden wedding.   

Featuring an oak wedding barn, outdoor rooms with glass roofs, bespoke marquee and extensive landscaped gardens on the banks of the river Walkham, facilities include a charming 18th century stone honeymoon cottage with contemporary, rustic-chic décor. 

If you’ve always dreamed of an outdoor ceremony, then Ever After can make it happen for you. As you stand under the shelter of the barn, your guests can soak up the sun, or shelter under the awning, as you say your vows. The barn is strung with 100m of fairy lights and you’re welcome to borrow steel lanterns or oak logs to dress the area or bring in your florist to add enchanting floral details!

Following on from your ceremony, you can make the most of the stunning surroundings including a river, gardens and woods, as your guests enjoy a drink all set up and served by us. Décor items, garden games, rugs and open fires are all included, plus with a glass roofed terrace rainy days are no problem at all!

For your wedding food, our award-winning caterers create a menu for each wedding using the best quality locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. From canapés such as mini shepherds’ pies, Cornish crab cakes and mini bangers and mash to Devon cream tea with sandwiches and clotted cream and strawberries, Ever After will provide something perfect for your day. For your breakfast, you can choose from formal dining to the more casual sharing platters.

This eco-luxe venue is perfect for couples yearning for a romantic garden wedding with a stylish, contemporary twist.  An outdoor wedding venue with wow factor - whatever the weather. To view the venue for yourself, get in touch with the team.

Thank you so much!
Venue Service

By Alexandra Mourinho, on 31 Oct 2015

Thank you so much for everything you did for us in making our wedding day so special. We could not have wished for a more beautiful setting in which to share the day with our friends and family. The day was made even more special and enjoyable for us because of the hard work and careful attention to detail which you put in to organising everything. We were able to really relax and didn't have to worry about a single thing and we thank you very much for that.

The most beautiful venue
Venue Service

By Lucy & Chris, on 21 Aug 2015

Thank you for the perfect day! I'm still getting people ask where the venue is and how I found it. All our guests said it was the most beautiful venue they've ever been to. Mr & Mrs Lotto

"Nicola, Steven and the family helpers! A HUGE thank you from us both to you all. Every effort, big or small in anticipation of 18 July 2015 was appreciated so much. We all felt so welcome in your beautiful home and Lower Grenofen will always hold a special place in our hearts. We had the day that we dreamed of - personal, intimate, fun, romantic, classy and laid back. Your guidance and suggestions were always fantastic and we're grateful for your impeccable taste!

Truly inspiring
Venue Service

By Jerry Lovegrove, on 07 Aug 2015

Jerry and Nancy July 2015: "As things have settled down now and Jenny and Shaun are almost back in Auckland, I thought it was well time I dropped you a line. Everything was so lovely and the way you and your family worked so hard to transform things into the event it became was truly inspiring. Thanks to you all for sharing your home and going the extra mile to accommodate us. The whole thing was very emotionally charged and so many people have said about all the tears shed. All the contributors were great, from the food to the flowers, the hair and nails, music and photographer. Love, Jerry and Nancy

So special
Venue Service

By James & Amy, on 06 Oct 2014

We can’t thank Nicola & Steven enough for helping to make our day so special - it couldn’t have been more perfect! All of the guests have been raving about the stunning venue and so many have said that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to.

The perfect wedding
Venue Service

By Des Jordan, on 30 Sep 2014

Dear Nicola & Steven I'm sorry that it's taken so long for us to get back to you but you were both so very good to us that we felt it was not sufficient enough to just gush about the setting and accomodation, both of which were spectacular, and decided to wait for some feedback from people who attended our wedding. We know that everyone who came had a great time. My sister and her husband said that they'd never had such a good time at a wedding. Others have said that ours was the best wedding that they had ever been to and most of these people are old enough to have been to many weddings! People have raved about it. When we left, the day after our wedding, we did say to you that our day had been perfect. Someone said to us we couldn’t have done a better job of planning our wedding but once we'd found you (and you were the only venue we found in Devon that we wanted) you planned the wedding for us - we'll still take credit for our good choice though! All of your suggestions for the wedding and recommendations for suppliers were perfect. The executive loos were a big hit too. Such a degree of luxury for mobile bathrooms! You planned our wedding Nicola and took away all the stress we didn't want. You couldn't have done any more to give us the perfect wedding. You and Steven worked so hard and we'll never forget that. Des and Liz 2014

Couldn't have wished for a better location.
Venue Service

By Suzannah and Bobby, on 21 Sep 2014

We experienced Ever After as an idyllic location for our wedding. All the natural beauty provides a perfect backdrop to all aspects of the day. The garden is stunning regardless of the weather, our day started with rain, which could lead to nightmare fears, but only served to make everything look more green and fresh. Something we appreciated and our guests commented on, was Nicola's exquisite eye for detail and she has a talent to work and understand what you want for your wedding. We really valued her flexibility in allowing us to create our dream wedding event either making use of tradition or throwing it away completely. Ever After works with a fixed caterer, but once we tasted the Dartmoor inn food we realised this is only a positive, the food is incredible. Just as Nicola did, they demonstrated their talent to work with our wishes and budget without diminishing the quality of the food. When all this came together on our wedding day it gave the event a really magical feel in this tiny, beautiful corner of Dartmoor which for one day truly belonged to us.
