Devon is known for its stunning countryside and fantastic local food and for couples and groups who hire The Ash Barton Estate for their function, they can get the best of both.
Located in North Devon, this grand manor house is beautiful and romantic, surrounded by meadows and countryside, is Grade II listed and has a wealth of unique facilities including its own chapel and a fantastic swimming pool. A party house for any occasion the 25-acre estate is hired in its entirety, perfect for week-end, mid-week or whole week events, celebrations or retreats. A splendid combination of event spaces both inside and out, bedrooms for all and a blank canvas on which to create your own personal event style for as long as you are there.
Weddings at Ash Barton
With a traditional and ancient chapel, romantic in its originality and decorated just how you would like, makes it a perfect place to exchange vows, it can seat up to 100 for the ceremony but also works well on a much smaller scale, and can also host up to 50 for the Wedding breakfast or evening meal. Take a look at our blog for a recent event at Ash Barton which included delicious handmade canapés, followed by a full three course Wedding Breakfast including the bride and groom’s favourite food – locally reared Devon Beef!
The estate is large and can accommodate any number of guests at a wedding, marquees, outside catering and food vans all work well in this welcoming wedding venue. As they have a fire pit consider including a BBQ, Hog Roast or even a simple stick and marshmallow combination for your guests to roast over the fire before or after fireworks?
There is a beautiful flower meadow on the estate perfect for stunning wedding photographs. For those couples who want to reflect the Devon countryside in their menu consider fresh local produce in salads, along with edible flowers and fresh tasting cocktails. Locally reared beef or lamb and light cheesecake desserts in different flavours, with different fruit toppings or decorated with local edible flowers or herbs.
Ash Barton is a venue for all seasons and it also boasts an amazing games room, to which you can add your own, if you are thinking of having an indoor circus themed wedding perhaps instead of an evening buffet – larger canapés can be served – think mini hot dogs and mini burgers, small pots of popcorn or cute candy floss on sticks to reflect the fun circus style and the games available for all your guests to play.
As the Ash Barton Estate can be hired for a whole wedding weekend we are happy to cater for just the wedding day feast or indeed for the whole weekend so you and your guests don’t have to lift a finger!
