Upton Barn owners, Richard and Claire, hunted high and low to find the perfect wedding venue for their own nuptial event but couldn’t. Fortunately they had the space to do it at home and enjoyed it so much they decided to offer it to other couples too!
Many weddings later, the forgotten Victorian kitchen garden and dilapidated cider barn are but a distant memory and Upton Barn & Walled Garden has grown from strength to strength. The passion and dedication is evident throughout, from the neatly kept gardens and grounds, to the stunning spaces and warm welcome you receive from everyone. This is very much a family affair and anyone visiting is treated like a long-lost friend. Their expert team will be with you every step of the way to help and guide you as much or as little as you need.
The Walled Garden is a picture-perfect setting for wedding ceremonies, with its manicured lawns, tinkling water fountain, abundant flower beds and hand-carved oak arbour. In less clement weather, The Cider Barn, a traditional Devon cob barn with a few contemporary twists, is available for ceremonies of up to 156 guests. A polished concrete floor, locally crafted chandeliers, soaring oak trusses, floor to ceiling glazed gable all combine to offer a stunning back drop for that all-important ‘I Do’. Afterwards, guests can enjoy drinks and canapes whilst they mingle in the garden, play a game by the lake, explore the beautiful landscaped grounds further afield or sit back and relax around the wood-burning stove in the cosy Press Bar.
Then dine in style in our new Stable Barn with seating for up to 156 guests. With warm timber panelling, striking lighting features, fully-stocked bar and yet more captivating views from the floor
Down a winding country lane in Devon lies a secret garden, a beautiful barn and a warm Upton welcome.
Then, as the sun goes down, dance the night away back in The Cider Barn or sit around the fire pits beneath the twinkling stars, toasting marshmallows and sharing a memorable moment. A perfect end to a perfect day.
All couples looking for an exclusive wedding venue where they can relax and feel at ease within beautiful surroundings and the freedom to design their wedding their way.
The warm welcome and relaxed feeling when you arrive at Upton, our friendly team of expert events coordinators, the blend of traditional and contemporary architecture, the abundant space both inside and out, flexibility, versatility and those views!
