Windout Barn is a medieval barn venue in Exeter, Devon, that hosts unique weddings and events. Dating back to the 11th century, this stunning property lies at the heart of a working farm framed by the rolling hills of Dartmoor. The farmstead is brimming with history and rustic charm, creating a blank canvas for romantic celebrations of love. Here, you can gather with loved ones to mark your milestone occasion against a stunning backdrop in the English countryside.

Facilities and Capacity

Windout Barn is a tastefully restored cob and stone barn with a historic simplicity that sets it apart from other venues. Inside, the floor plan is divided into two sections, including an intimate bar area and a main multi-functional space. Up to 100 guests can be accommodated here, with seating available at long trestle tables for a distinct banquet feel. The barn is a warm and inviting space on its own but really comes to life with the addition of flowers, candlelight, and decor. You are free to decorate it as you wish to bring a truly personal touch to the interior. Outdoors, you can enjoy the scenery with welcome drinks on the lawned terrace overlooking the Teign Valley. This spot is ideal for mingling with loved ones before the celebrations kick off. If you require extra outdoor covered space, you can hire a marquee for the occasion.

Services Offered

Various services are available at Windout Barn, including an exclusive three-day rental package that covers on-site parking, tables and seating, and overnight accommodation. You are welcome to bring along your own caterers to serve food throughout the day. The venue also includes a licenced stocked bar or you can stock yourself with the addition of a corkage fee. If you're staying overnight, the Old Piggery is an intimate cottage that can fit four people. For more information, contact Windout Barn with your enquiries.

A quite extraordinary place to get married!

Debs and I got married at Windout Farm in July 2021; on the top lawn overlooking the valley, with swallows ducking and diving over our heads. The setting is truly breathtaking with the valley stretching out beyond the farm as the back drop to where we stood to make our vows. The barn has rustic, old English charm and provides a perfect place to continue celebrating in to the night. We were so well looked after by the Windout team, the communication throughout was excellent and they gave us such a warm welcome. Wouldn't have changed any part of our day!

Above and beyond

Windout Barn is a truly superb venue for a wedding. The barn itself is stunning, with exposed beams and a rustic charm. The surrounding countryside is also breathtaking, with rolling hills and stunning views. Sam and Flic are incredibly friendly and helpful, and they will go above and beyond to make sure your wedding day is perfect. They helped us host our wedding in the depths of COVID, and we couldn't have asked for more. Our experience also included one guest being saved from his car in a flooded river, Sam obligingly towing car with his Pioneer. Above and beyond. Your marriage couldn't start in a better place.

Beautifully bespoke and stress free

The day was perfect and the Windout barn looked incredible. It’s an extremely special place.. the staff made everything happen smoothly, from hosting our band to installing water taps for our caterer.

The barn was ours for three days, giving us plenty of time to set up and pack down. The staff were around to help and go through the big day with us. They made us feel very at ease. Perfect for a personal and bespoke wedding with lots of flexibility.

The piggery and other accommodation very near made it easy for family and friends to be on the farm with us.

We couldn’t recommend this venue more!

Amazing wedding at Windout

We feel incredibly lucky to have had our wedding at Windout. Flic, Sam and Minnie were brilliant throughout the whole wedding process and so generous with their time, ideas and practical help - nothing was too much trouble. There is something so completely magical about Windout; the ancient barn and its timeless views totally blew everyone away. We have such happy memories of our day at Windout and we truly could not recommend it more highly.

Stunning venue, great hosts and a perfect day - we loved it!

Windout Barn was the most stunningly beautiful place for our wedding reception. The setting is a rural dream - and Sam and Flic were such kind hosts, making Felix and I feel so at home. All our guests loved coming to the farm: sipping drinks with incredible views, saying hello to the sheep and having a party in the exquisite barn which our friends helped us fill with flowers. It’s a privilege to have celebrated our marriage in such a heavenly, ancient space, tucked amongst the rolling hills of the Teign Valley. I wouldn’t have wanted to have it anywhere else. If you want somewhere unforgettable for your day, it’s perfect.
