Devon Wedding Venue
Are you an outdoorsy couple planning a one, two or three night weekend wedding? Higher Holcombe – your unique outdoor Devon wedding venue – nestled in woodland and wildflower-splattered meadows. Gorgeous ceremony, reception and party spaces. All the facilities and accommodation are included in your exclusive-use venue hire.
Our elegantly restored rustic barn – The Old Dairy – is the heart of the wedding venue. With views of the meadows and woodland fringes, your guests will enjoy being surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside. Its twinkling lights on gorgeous wooden beams create a neutral palette that you can decorate to suit your style. Chunky handmade tables and wooden chairs are perfect for banquet style feasting as you choose.
There’s plenty of space for live music bands, DJs and a dance-packed wedding celebration party.
The Rustic Barn Terrace
Informal picnic benches continue the relaxed feel and is often used as the focus for welcome drinks or a mingle and meet. Use it to play vintage games or a spot to set up a pop up bar or visiting ice cream truck!
Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Spaces
We are renowned for outdoor weddings which can be held in our gorgeously secluded silver birch ‘church’ or in the unique hill-top willow ‘cathedral’. And if the weather is wet, use our funky stretch tent in the celebration meadow for an undercover wedding ceremony surrounded by countryside.
Hill-top willow ‘cathedral’
We think we may be the only wedding venue in the UK (possibly in the world) to offer you a willow ‘cathedral’. Imagine your wedding guests walking along the gently meandering ‘willow walkway’ aisle to our unique hill-top willow cathedral. Three ‘chapels’ are formed with maturing willows wrapping themselves around the 35m long giant frame.
A truly memorable location for your outdoor wedding ceremony. Not only for wedding ceremonies. You could invite your guests to start the party with your own hill-top prosecco pop-up bar! After, you can wander the woodland glade pathways (lined with wildflowers) down to the Old Dairy barn for the rest of your wedding party celebrations.
Secluded Silver Birch ‘Church’
Woodland weddings don’t come more beautifully elegant than this! The silver birch church has a romantic and secluded feel and is just perfect for your woodland wedding ceremony. Rows of white-bark silver birch trees form a natural woodland wedding aisle, the leaves offering a natural and pretty, shady canopy. It’s also a great location for a woodland bar, an al fresco meal in the shade or even your first dance!
Celebration Meadow Stretch Tent
With our funky stretch tent, woodland weddings can still take place outside – whatever the weather! And if the sun is shining, the stretch tent becomes a chill-out space in the shade! Located between the Old Dairy and the firepit and lit with festoon lighting – it’s yet another funky feature of our woodland wedding venue.
Chill-Out Fire Pit
Perfect for guests who want to take the weight off their dancing feet – or just a lovely warming focal point for a bit of late night banter or star gazing!
