Such a perfect day
Venue Service

By Steve and Katie, on 10 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

We had the most wonderful wedding imaginable. Shilstone were beyond superb in every respect: impeccable planning, delicious food, incredibly beautiful setting, highly professional service by every single member of staff and we felt, once it was over, that we'd made friends with them. Our guests were absolutely delighted with the day - a huge thank you to all involved.

Stunning venue in the heart of Devon

Shilstone House, an utterly STUNNING listed building in the very heart of Devon, the house opened it doors for reception drinks, canapés and some milling around on the lawn with garden games and champers.

Impeccable & personalised service
Venue Service

By Sarah Hughes, on 26 Oct 2015

We were married at Shilstone in September this year and would highly recommend this beautiful location and of course the team who each worked so hard to deliver a day that was truly bespoke to us and which also left our guests feeling special too. Everything from being able to hand-pick our own suppliers, to working with the in house catering team to develop a delicious food and wine menu that reflected all the things we loved all, to the regular check-in emails from Jo and Hollie answering any questions we matter how specific they were. From start to finish our experience of working with the team at Shilstone to organise our wedding day was a real joy. The service on the day was spectacular and you can tell that everyone who works at Shilstone genuinely enjoys the work that they do. They all have an impeccable eye for detail, which was so reassuring for me, as a bride who organises events for a living, and nothing was ever too much trouble before, during and after the wedding day. Shilstone is such a special location - not only is it stunningly beautiful - it is also a place where you can get married in the peaceful barn, then enjoy a spectacular drinks reception in the gardens, followed by one heck of a party in the beautiful mughal marquee and walled gardens. It can deliver a whole day experience but it somehow feels like you and your guests experience many different places due to the many hidden surprises around every corner. It's absolutely worth a visit to see the grounds of Shilstone for yourself if you are considering South Hams as a destination for your wedding day. It's an incredibly special place and you won't regret it.

Best Wedding Venue we could have ever hoped for!
Venue Service

By Ally and Andy, on 20 Feb 2015

Shilstone was everything we dreamed of and much more for our wedding. The service was fantastic throughout and I can't recommend it highly enough. Although not cheap, you get what you pay for and so much more at Shilstone. So glad that we chose a venue in such a stunning setting - looking back at the wedding photographs and video would not be so much fun if it weren't for the amazing feeling that the place has. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day.

Shilstone is a truly beautiful place, we fell in love from the moment we turned down the drive. We have had so many comments on our wedding photos; the house gardens and grounds provide an incredible backdrop. Sebastian and Lucy (the owners) treated us like family and their whole team bent over backwards to make our day special. We literally couldn't fault Shilstone as our wedding venue - I just wish we could do it all over again!

Stunning location
Venue Service

By Joanne, on 24 Jan 2015

We were invited to our friends wedding at Shilstone last year. The barn was a perfect setting for a Civil Ceremony. The house, grounds and marquee are stunning, everyone had a great time and plenty of food and drink was had by all. Now we have been lucky enough to have been invited to another friends wedding at Shilstone and can't wait to go back!

Spectacular venue & setting
Venue Service

By Rachel & James, on 11 Nov 2013

"Rachel & I wanted to write to you both to say a very big thank you to you and the team at Shilstone for your help in making our wedding day everything we could have hoped for. So many of our guests have since commented on how truly spectacular the venue and the setting was on our day, and both you and your team were a pleasure to deal with from the moment we first visited just over a year ago. Thank you again and very best wishes!"

This is an exceptionally beautiful property, with its exquisite features and stunning surroundings, it just oozes charm. You fall in love from the moment you pull through the drive. The breathtaking views of the valley and the rolling hills really capture that feeling of "escape to the country." You couldn't find a better location to host a truly magical day.

Beautiful new wedding venue
Venue Service

By Helen Brown, on 12 Aug 2011

The house is fantastic and setting couldn't be better. Lovely views over the valley and the walled garden is perfect for a marquee!
