Full Description
We have a civil wedding venue licence so couples can use Buckland House for their special day. Buckland has the magnificence of a Georgian mansion and the friendliness of a family home, combined, to make the perfect venue for a wedding or party just how you want it to be. The church next to the house welcomes couples for a blessing if they want this. We can take a maximum of 80 guests on site in total including the guests already staying at the house. We can put you in contact with local caterers, florists, local B&B's etc and are happy to help with planning along the way to make your day run smoothly. The emphasis is on you choosing the things you want to have and do and we would like you to think of our house as your home while you are here.

Wouldn't have changed a thing!
We adored our time at Buckland House and are missing it already. It’s such a great mix of homely and opulent and the perfect setting for our rustic country wedding. Everyone who came loved the venue and it’s so wonderful to have the run of the manor for the whole weekend so you really can do things to way you want them. Wouldn’t have changed a thing!

A shabby chic DIY dream!
I can't really explain just how magical Buckland House is but I am going to try! From our very first emails, the initial viewings, the booking, and then right through to the wedding weekend itself: Tammy, Suzanne and Ralph have been absolutely wonderful. In England, you just cannot rely on the weather, so we were very keen to have a venue which was all about the interior space. We accidently found Buckland House while researching rentable holiday homes as opposed to wedding venues! It could sleep 30 of our guests, was exclusively yours for the entire weekend, had no curfew, no corkage, and had a wedding licence too. It meant we could build our wedding exactly how we wanted it, and have our ceremony and reception all in one place, cutting out transportation: A shabby chic DIY dream! The moment I saw photos, I fell in love and made arrangements to view it immediately. Suffice to say, the visit blew us away! It was like being in a National Trust house but with zero restrictions. The interior space is huge, and it is so impressive inside that not a lot of decoration was needed. There was plenty of room should the weather be horrible all weekend (which it was, although thankfully we had a few breaks in the rain and could get out for photos). It is also surrounded by 280 acres of gorgeous grounds (some of which we adorned with a flock of retro lawn flamingos), so had the weather ended up being amazing, it would have been an added bonus rather the focus of our day. Buckland served as a fantastic base from which to host a whole weekends worth of celebrations in the Devon countryside and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We only spent 4 days there, but miss it so much!!
