About

Welcome to Tawstock Court, home to the Peryer family since 2012. In 2019, we officially opened Tawstock Court as an exclusive wedding venue which, we feel, offers our couples, their friends and families the perfect backdrop for their special day. Tawstock Court is stately home situated in 32 acres of grounds and ancient woodlands and surrounded by the beautiful North Devon countryside.

When booking you will receive dedicated and professional service from the team at Tawstock Court, to ensure your wedding event runs smoothly from beginning to end.

THE CEREMONY

The Panelled Hall (Max. 90 people) with its two carved wooden pillars and stunning fireplace provides the perfect indoor space to say your vows. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, the 16th century Elizabethan Gatehouse, with its original wooden doors, is a lovely choice for a fine weather day. If you wish to have a church wedding there is the beautiful church of St. Peter’s which is situated only a 2 minute walk away at the bottom of our garden.

THE RECEPTION

We offer a suite of rooms including period rooms and modern lounges within the main house as part of your exclusive use. The Morning Room, with the stunning views across the countryside, is a great option for the wedding breakfast and/or drinks reception and The Old Refectory is the perfect space for both your main wedding breakfast and evening entertainment which is connected to our licensed bar. This provides you with plenty of space and options allowing you to be creative when planning your day.

Morning Room Seats Max. 58 for a sit-down meal

Old Refectory Seats Max. 108 for a sit-down meal

We have recently developed our Courtyard into a stunning space perfect for your evening celebrations with ambience lighting, plenty of tables and seating underneath a canopy of twinkle lights, a decking area and swinging chairs.

FOOD AND DRINK

We want our couples to have flexibility in their catering requirements, therefore we are happy for you to choose your own external caterers for your wedding, whether this is canapes and a la carte dining to food vans or hog roasts. The original country house kitchen has been converted into a fully licensed bar providing a variety of wines and champagne including a carefully selected Gin list. With plenty of spirits, beer and soft drinks, you can even choose a cocktail or cosy up by the log burner with a hot chocolate. We are happy to provide you with a drinks package for your wedding breakfast or, if preferred, if you would like to provide your own wine or champagne for a corkage fee, that is possible too.

THE ACCOMMODATION

We have created four dwellings next to the main house with contemporary en-suite accommodation for up to 48 of your guests. The Honeymoon Suite is complete with a designated ‘getting ready’ area, chandeliers and plenty of space for you to prepare on your wedding morning. Each guest has access to comfortable lounges and facilities for refreshments and everyone always comments on the stunning views from the shared lounge and kitchen. All bedrooms have a television, access to wi-fi and breakfast is included so you can all finish your wedding weekend with a delicious Full English Breakfast before you say your goodbyes.

    Perfect Devon Venue

    Wow what can we say! We are still reliving our wedding last month at the beautiful Tawstock Court. As soon as we stepped inside the door we knew it was where we wanted our wedding! Laura has been amazing throughout the whole process, willing to answer any questions and the door is always open for a look at the new developments. When we booked our wedding, there was still a lot of work to be done, but Laura and her family certainly didn’t disappoint, with every room more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!
    The accommodation has been finished to a brilliant standard, all of our guests loved their stay, and all commented on how stunning their rooms (and the views) were. The honeymoon suite is extra special, and is perfectly set up for hair and makeup on the morning, with lots of space and great lighting.

    We can’t thank Laura and her team enough for all of their support on the day, everything ran so smoothly and we’ve lost count of the number of lovely comments we’ve had regarding the venue! So thank you for making our day so special, not just for us but all of our guests too!

    Exceeded expectations!

    We recently had our wedding at Tawstock Court and the whole experience has absolutely exceeded expectations and we could not be happier! There really is something so special about this venue and the family behind it. Despite planning our wedding from Australia, communication and planning with Laura has been faultless and everything came together perfectly. Alongside having exclusive use of the beautiful venue for the day, we also decided along with our overseas guests to stay at the venue for the whole weekend. The accommodation is wonderful, and honeymoon suite in particular a really fabulous space which has evidently been well thought through.
    We can’t wait to follow along as this beautiful venue continues to develop and look forward to hopefully popping back in for many years to come. ✨

    The most perfect day.

    We had our wedding at Tawstock court recently. We had the most amazing weekend. The venue is absolutely stunning! We were lucky enough to get married outside, with the weather on our side, it was a beautiful day!
    There are plenty of rooms to make use of, which are all beautiful. The views outside are stunning which is great for pictures.
    We had quite a few guests stay at the accommodation of the venue, and we had lots of comments on how lovely the rooms were. The honeymoon suite is such a lovely room, with plenty of space for bridal prep with good lighting.
    Laura is such a lovely lady and nothing was too much trouble for her. She went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day.
    We wish we could do it all over again!
    Thank you again Laura and your team for being so amazing & making our wedding extra special. 🌟

    Outstanding all round

    We weren’t expecting Tawstock to feel like “our kind of venue” having previously had our hearts set on a barn or marquee on the cliffs… but Laura and Tawstock instantly captivated us and our wedding became something more perfect for us than we could have ever imagined.

    A few highlights:
    - Laura and co – first and foremost, Laura is the most amazing person to work with in the run up to our wedding and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else running the show on the day, she was phenomenal. As were all her staff.
    - That view!
    - Inside and outside ceremony choices where neither would have felt second best.
    - Fantastic flexible space allowing you to create the perfect flow for the day, whatever the weather.
    - Gorgeous central bar area, keeping people near the action.
    - Beautiful courtyard.
    - High quality on site accommodation.

    The list is really the tip of the iceberg… it is impossible to describe the feel and potential of Tawstock Court. It’s a “blank canvas” with such warmth and charm. This venue will allow you to create whatever feel you’d like for your wedding day. I would urge anyone to have a viewing here, even if you aren’t sure if it’s “your kind of venue” we didn’t think it was ours… we couldn’t have been more wrong.

    Thank you xxxx
