Pynes House is a stunning country house wedding venue, set in its own 37-acre park in the Exe Valley, but still only three miles from all the convenience of Exeter. Believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, Pynes House is now inspiring couples for their perfect wedding day.

Facilities and Capacity

With a number of magnificent State rooms and capacity to seat up to 96 people in the elegant Ballroom for a sit-down meal or more for a marquee wedding, Pynes House makes the ideal year-round exclusive-use retreat. During the summer, make the most of the ornamental terraces, lawns, pretty woodland and expansive views. For winter weddings, enjoy the cosy romance of the gorgeous interiors, stunning views, and open log fires. Additional facilities include luxurious accommodation with 12 individually styled bedroom suites so couples and their guests can make it a wedding weekend rather than just one day.

Services Offered

The friendly and experienced team will help you with your plans for your perfect day from your first enquiry to the day itself when a Pynes House coordinator will work with you to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Perfect wedding venue!

What an excellent wedding venue! We couldn't recommend it highly enough. They were so helpful with everything from planning to making sure everything ran perfectly on the day.

Pynes house provided a wedding coordinator who was fantastic! You could tell she knew exactly what she was doing and everything was managed perfectly. Even down to having our little dog run down the aisle before the bride arrived!

Many of the guests commented on how spectacular the venue is, and we couldn't agree more. It was like a fairy tale to be able to stay and get married in such a magnificent place, and to have all of our friends and family around us too.

The accomodation is beautiful, from the bedrooms to the guest kitchen, Pynes felt like it was ours for the weekend and it was wonderful to have so many of the wedding party staying in the same place as us for the weekend of the wedding.

Fantastic wedding venue, we couldn't have been happier.

The most magical wedding venue!

We got married in June this year and it was the most magical day, from the first visit to Pynes House and going up that driveway I just knew that was going to be our venue. The guest rooms are spectacular and each of our guests were in love with them. Kate and the team were incredible from the first visit to waving us goodbye as mr and mrs I could not recommend this venue more

Dream Wedding Venue

I was so nervous prior to my first visit to Pynes House; we had read so many fabulous reviews about this impressive venue, most of which detail love at first sight and I am so pleased to say, Pynes House did not disappoint. After so many unsuccessful venue searches and visits, from the minute car started to roll down the long and inviting driveway, we were in awe.

The house is set within the most beautiful surroundings and is visually breathtaking. Each luxurious room is decorated to perfection and what every bride dreams of for their wedding night.

Although Jon and I knew we wanted to marry outside, there was much less stress leading up to the day, as we knew the inside of the house was as beautiful as the outside. However, we were lucky enough to have the wedding we had always hoped for and it couldn't have been more perfect.

Heather and Kate are so lovely and such a pleasure to work with. From the moment we first spoke, they were helpful, friendly and supportive and we couldn't have asked for more. Pynes House is the most gorgeous home, from home and provided the most phenomenal setting for our dream wedding.

Beautiful venue, but be careful of the added extra

Beautiful venue, but be careful of the added extras! We got married on the 30th June 2018 and had the most wonderful time, however we found that you do need to budget quite a lot more than the initial price quoted as the venue do charge extra for quite a few things, I.e. music being on until 12pm, beds being made, bottle collection, £600 for an extra 3 hours on the Sunday etc. Just read the T&Cs carefully as we were caught out a week before the wedding being told we would be charged £500 extra for the music to be on until 12pm. They reduced it to £250 eventually but it left a sour taste in the mouth 7 days before the wedding.
Overall, it was a beautiful venue and very well appointed both inside and out.

My husband and I were married at Pynes House in August of 2013 and we cannot say enough about how incredibly happy we are with our experience there. Everything about the venue exceeded our expectations. Pynes House is like stepping back in time into a Jane Austen novel with all the amenities of a modern five star resort. We were able to choose our own caterer, florist, band and marquee hire in order to customize our wedding day and make it the day of our dreams. As soon as you step onto the property, you feel as if you have stepped into a fairytale. The staff is incredibly helpful and caters to all your needs while the accommodations are that of a five star resort. Our closest guests were able to stay on the property with us and the rest were shuttled from hotels in the city for the wedding day all with great help from the staff. The entire day went so smoothly and we are still told by guests that it was the most wonderful wedding they had ever experienced. If you want your wedding day to be a real life fairy tale, choose Pynes House! We couldn't be happier
