Bickleigh Castle: the dream Tiverton wedding venue


Stumped for wedding venue ideas? Firstly, Bickleigh Castle would like to wish you a huge congratulations on your engagement! Second, we would love to help you to choose the perfect venue for your dream wedding. We are based in the heart of Devon, in the charming, beautiful town of Tiverton.

To give you a little insight into the history of Tiverton, the area was once recognised as a major producer of wool – exciting we know(!) – but became a significant lace-maker in the 19th century. A coincidence? We think not!

Nestled in the luscious Devonshire countryside, Tiverton is the perfect romantic setting for your fairytale wedding – as well as the opportunity to take some truly stunning and memorable wedding photos for your album. At Bickleigh Castle, we are passionate about making your dream wedding a reality – here’s what we can offer:

The perfect venue for your Tiverton wedding

Dating back to the 11th century, the stunning Bickleigh Castle offers the perfect location for your dream Tiverton wedding. With its traditional yet unique style, this wedding venue is both steeped in nature and history. The magnificent castle and grounds, as well as the River Exe which sweeps through the estate, provides a fascinating backdrop for any wedding.

Outdoor wedding

Situated in a 30-acre valley of beautiful green, the sights surrounding Bickleigh Castle make it a perfect venue for your dream outdoor wedding. You will have the opportunity to get married under the elegant Victorian-style pagoda next to the 6th century chapel. We can accommodate 120 seats for your guests in our exclusive outdoor space. We can also offer outdoor drinks reception, entertainment, fireworks and photographs.


Where better to stay during your dream Tiverton wedding than a fairytale castle? At Bickleigh, we provide exclusive accommodation so that you can end your perfect day by quickly retiring to the Castle’s luxury bridal suite. We can also accommodate 40 of your guests in our amazing thatched cottages.


Organising the food and drink for your big day can sometimes be strenuous and time-consuming.
