Full Description
Believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, we think you will agree that Pynes House is a wonderful place to host your perfect day. Built in the beautiful Exe Valley in about 1700, just three miles from the centre of Exeter, Pynes House makes the ideal year-round private retreat for intimate groups or larger wedding ceremonies and receptions. During the summer, make the most of our manicured lawns, ornamental terraces and pretty woodland, and in the winter enjoy the cosy romance of our beautiful interiors, stunning views and open log fires. Alongside luxurious accommodation for up to 24, there are a number of magnificent state rooms, with capacity to comfortably seat up to 95 for a sit-down meal. For larger weddings in Exeter, or if you’d like your wedding reception to be outside, a marquee can be positioned on the lawns. With the house as a magnificent backdrop and surrounded by breathtaking countryside, the grounds of this charming wedding venue in Exeter are the perfect setting for a marquee and outdoor celebration. Always exclusively yours, we pride ourselves on the personal touch, helping you to create the perfect wedding for you.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have loved every single wedding here. It is wonderful to see couples' personalities shine through. Although the house looks different each time, every wedding is beautiful.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan the wedding which is right for you as a couple.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

For a recent Christmas wedding, a Christmas tree was set up for each guest to add a decoration as a gift for the couple. It was so beautiful to think that every Christmas they would put these decorations on their tree as a reminder of their wedding and their family and friends.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, timeless, atmospheric, stylish, flexible

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

It's hard to narrow it down as there are lots of favourites, but the driveway, which gives you the "first look" of the house and which gets a beautiful afternoon light is always popular.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

A favourite of ours, Monty Don, was recently a guest and we were thrilled by his compliments on the gardens.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Arancini balls!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon rolls!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The driveway and entrance have the "wow" factor, but there are so many beautiful and historical details in the house which have been sensitively enhanced with timeless and stylish decoration.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Pynes House is family-run and we pride ourselves on the personal touch in helping couples achieve the wedding they want
