    Celebrate your wedding day at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s iconic River Cottage in Axminster, Devon. The venue sits on 65 acres of organic farmland and is located just a short distance from the stunning Jurassic Coast. This estate is a unique setting for your celebration, with a strong emphasis on the food served throughout the day.

    Facilities and Capacity

    The venue is fully licensed to conduct civil ceremonies and partnerships. Couples can say their vows in Hugh’s famous farmhouse, the beautifully refurbished barn with breathtaking views across the Axe Valley, or in the walled garden. The Threshing Barn is the perfect rustic venue all year round and can accommodate up to 100 seated guests for your ceremony and 60 for dining. In the evening, the team will clear the tables to make room for 120 guests to dance into the night. After the night has drawn to a close, you can retire to the refurbished 17th-century farmhouse.

    Services Offered

    At River Cottage, couples receive a dedicated wedding coordinator who is on hand to plan their perfect celebration and ensure everything runs smoothly on the day. Accommodation and bed and breakfast for six people in the farmhouse are included in your wedding package. A marquee can be provided for shelter for outdoor weddings, while facilities are offered for both DJs and live bands.


    Couples are invited down to the farm to design their seasonal menu in collaboration with the fantastic River Cottage chefs. The focus is on the food. All of the dishes created here use the finest homegrown, local, organic, and seasonal ingredients, guaranteed to impress your guests.
