About The Bedford Hotel

The Bedford Hotel is a privately owned 19th Century, Grade 1 listed Hotel and wedding venue, which was built on the remains of a Benedictine Abbey and has been lovingly restored to its former glory

Our main civil ceremony room is the Woburn Room,

We have 4 beautiful functions rooms licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, whether you are looking for an intimate civil ceremony for 10 or a civil ceremony for 110, each room has its own unique character and charm to suit all your individual requirements.

Our Devon Civil Ceremony Packages include:-

  • Red carpet sprinkled with rose petals.
  • White silk civil ceremony table cover
  • Room hire
  • Large pedestal of fresh flowers

If it is a church wedding in Tavistock you are considering we are fortunate to be opposite the beautiful St Eustacious Church which; like The Bedford Hotel, used to be part of the Benedictine Abbey.

The primary wedding breakfast room is the Award Winning ‘Gallery 26’. A stunning, modern function room, fully air conditioned with under floor heating, contemporary decor, mood lighting and a huge feature glass wall; through which can be seen the architectural splendor of the adjoining Tavistock Abbey Chapel. A perfect combination where old meets new and both succeed.

For a more intimate Wedding Breakfast The Tavistock Room is perfect, an oak paneled room with ornate fireplace and hand painted ceiling recreates the elegance of a bygone era. This room can seat up to 24 wedding guests

There are 31 individually styled hotel bedrooms combining modern facilities with contemporary styling. A special Bed and Breakfast rate can be arranged specifically for your wedding party, just ask your wedding co-ordinator for more information.

    Sally & Martin Saturday 15th August

    My daughter chose The Bedford hotel for her wedding reception. throughout the planning we were well looked after by Robynne the event organiser. We chose the Bedford as we had friends and family attending from all over the country and required somewhere with rooms to stay and also somewhere that would accommodate 90 plus guests for a sit down meal and 150 for the evening reception.

    The day was sunny and warm and we were lucky enough to have canapés and welcome drinks in the beautiful garden. The reception room was immaculately presented and we were able to go in the day before to add own touches.

    The meals were delicious and warm - quite a feat when they were catering for so many. All our guests complimented us on their meals and the service and we were lucky enough to be able to offer them a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts with their invitation. Leanne who managed the catering side of the day was amazing, friendly, efficient and professional as were all the staff, even when guests proceeded to let off party poppers and mini frisbees to "break the ice" at the start of the meal.

    Thank you a potentially stressful but delightful time was made extra special by this venue and its wonderful staff.
