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 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.
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.
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.
