Full Description
  • Do you wish you could break away from the traditional hotel-style wedding and reception? Just not your style? Country Ways is a totally bespoke venue where you have the whole complex to yourselves and the freedom to create your own dream wedding from the day you book to the Big Day itself. Whether you dream of a relaxed gathering of family and close friends seated on haybales with tasty pasties, Devon cider and a cream tea, or a Country Chic or Vintage Extravaganza with 5* Fine Dining in an exquisite tipi, vintage marquee or circus Big Top... your Wedding dreams can come true at Country Ways. During the peak season from April to October with warm, sunny days and long summer evenings what could be better than exclusive use of the whole complex of 6 self catering cottages, the Wedding Barn licenced for Civil Ceremonies and the beautiful grounds for a whole weekend from Friday to Monday? Country Ways gives you the opportunity to share a wonderful getaway experience with up to 120 of your friends and family members in a stunning and very private location. With extensive gardens and large level lawns for a marquee, tipis or yurts you can celebrate in style with the magnificent North Devon scenery as the backdrop for your festivities.
