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.

With a venue like this, people like this & a service like this, it couldn’t be anything other than the Perfect Day!
Thank you for an amazing day. Wonderful venue, gorgeous wedding. Everything was perfect, even the weather!
We had an amazing wedding weekend at this beautiful castle, full of character and charm, in the middle of wonderful Devon countryside, flowing river.throughout the weekend the staff worked around the clock to make sure every detail was perfect, the rooms have amazing character ,the castle is full of splender and history, the food and drink for breakfast to evening was fantastic, we had fireworks, ice cream kart, and disco, all were amazing words escape me but I’m amazed by how well the wedding flowed perfectly without any hiccups, the guests were over the moon to be invited to such a wonderful place the fireworks were second to non and finished the weekend perfectly .we highly recommend this beautiful place, fantastic staff and everything in between.
People have not stopped commenting on how delicious the food was and how amazing the fireworks were, nothing could have prepared us for how magical and emotional the day was for us both. Bickleigh is a very special place with an amazing charm of its own. Everyone of our guests without fail commented on how wonderful a venue it was, like no other wedding venue they had been to before.
From the start of coming to view the Castle, your kindness and hospitality has been amazing. Sharon did a fab job at helping us organise the most perfect day imaginable, and very prompt with replying to emails and speaking with us about anything we needed; this made the whole process run so much smoother, cut down on the stress, and I think that it really showed on the day just how well everything came together. On the day itself, a lot of guests commented that they thought they were at a Celebrity Wedding!! It was a lovely touch for Sarah to come and see me and give me the last roses out of her garden, and the love and kindness from Sharon and Polly was really touching; it was obvious how much they wanted us to be happy and give us the most perfect day. We cannot say Thank You enough for giving us a Wedding Day that we didn’t even know was possible. We knew our Wedding Day would be special, but we didn’t know it was this possible to be this happy, and now, we will hold on to these memories forever. We just wish we could relive the day again and again and again. We are so proud to have had our Wedding at your venue and would recommend it to anyone for future weddings. It was 1000 x better than we could have ever imagined.
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.
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!
The castle is medieval, but the rooms and bathrooms are quite modern and comfortable. The owners and staff are warm, friendly, helpful and efficient, and went out of their way to ensure that the wedding reception, breakfasts, dinners, fireworks, etc. were all over the top. The owner and wedding coordinator exceeded expectations a number of times to ensure all went well – even to the sewing up of a broken zipper on a bridesmaid’s dress as she headed for the church! We will definitely spend more time at Bickleigh Castle.
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!
What a wonderful wedding Natasha and Andy had at Bickleigh Castle in July this summer. We shall never forget the enchanting setting, beautiful weather and the perfect service that was provided by you and your staff. Nothing was too much trouble, so that each guest felt relaxed and really enjoyed the whole day.
