Your Romantic Outdoor Wedding Venue
You see him standing there at the end of the aisle and your heart starts to flutter, like the day you first met.
Surrounded by the beautiful countryside & situated next to the River Exe. Bickleigh Castle can ensure your outdoor wedding goes to plan. Just imagine saying your wedding vows with the sound of the river running by, robins singing in the trees and the tree quietly rustling in the wind. Although we may not be able to guarantee the weather outdoor weddings are truly spectacular. We do have different options in place in case of a “British downpour” We will evaluate the weather the Friday before the wedding and set up The Great Hall as a backup plan if we think there may be a chance of rain.
After the ceremony, you can move to the versatile Wedding Breakfast Room, where you can dine in style with all your friends and family. View our menus for more information about our 5-star dining experience. For extremely large weddings it is necessary to hire a marquee.

Everything about that weekend was much more than we had anticipated, the service & organisation was excellent throughout. The food and presentation during the whole weekend far surpassed our expectations, the ambience. The chapel on Sunday morning was the crowning glory with over 40 attending which surprised us all. It was truly wonderful and magical. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Bickleigh Castle!
I would just like to say a massive thank you to Sarah and the team at Bickleigh Castle for hosting our Winter client event this year. We started off with having drinks in the Great Hall which was spacious yet cosy with the huge fire going. We then went on to the banqueting room for our buffet style lunch which was extremely tasty with plenty to go around all of our 70 guests (some going up for seconds!). John did a fantastic speech about the history of the castle which was both informative and interesting. John then led on to tours of the castle which all the clients thoroughly enjoyed. All of the staff (naming Marie and Steve especially) were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble and it really made my job a lot easier knowing I had such a great team to call upon at any time. Thank you, Sarah, we all thoroughly enjoyed the event and will be sure to be back.

With a venue like this, people like this & a service like this, it couldn’t be anything other than the Perfect Day!
The day ran SEAMLESSLY!! Sharon and Sarah showed us the true meaning of a fairy tale wedding, amazing food!! The relationship we made with Sarah was genuine , she interacted with the family and made a grand job which made me have the Best Day of my Life!
It was even better than we imagined and our family and friends had a magnificent time. The venue and setting is really to die for, so picturesque and perfect for a wedding. We do recommend to your future customers in taking the package including the wedding coordinator. Especially if you don’t live in Devon.
We just wanted to send you a note to thank you again for everything throughout the planning on our wedding day. It was truly was the best day of our lives and we are still getting comments from family and friends about how amazing it was. We have gorgeous photographs and a fantastic film, which we regularly watch, wishing we could do it all over again!
The team at Bickleigh Castle made every effort to to meet our (quite particular) needs, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about our weekend. Our party (of stags!) had a great time, and we thoroughly enjoyed living like lords for the weekend. Thank you to Sarah and everyone behind the scenes; we couldn’t have been happier with the environment, freedom, and help provided by the friendly folk at Bickleigh Castle.
