Beaconside House

Muddy says: Searching for a gorgeous gob-smacker of a venue for your wedding or party? Beaconside House is your exclusive home-from-home for the weekend, with cottages to stay and room for 200 on the Big Day. Oh, and did I mention the two pools and hot tubs…

Want a home-from-home party space from Friday night to Monday morning all to yourselves? Want your guests to be bowled over by utter gawgousness of your venue?  Want your wedding to be exclusive, unique with good times written all over it? Of course you do!

Beaconside House, a 25 acre estate near Bideford, is the perfect party and stay for a big day, big birthday or anniversary party,  with an eight-bedroom Victorian Manor House and four comfy cottages for your guests, a playground for family, friends, kids (and you can bring the dogs) with two swimming pools and the option of chilling with the fizz in the hot tubs (note the plural).

Say ‘I do’ in The Beacon, a brand-new barn-like space, framed by glass chandeliers and sleek oak beams arching into a lofty drape-filled apex, all a-shimmer with fairy lights and the peachy gleam of a copper-topped bar. Or if you’re an outdoorsy kinda gal, get hitched under an oak pagoda with the backdrop of rolling Devon hills, a romantic dell in their bluebell wood or The Glasshouse with its instagrammable views over that landscape.

Owners Mark and Ali are so in tune with what a wedding should be – the way you want it – they will move a wedding planned outdoors to indoors within ten minutes of the ceremony if rain stops play. Sounds good? Just wait till you see the place.
