Seeking a special somewhere for a small ceremony? Kitley House Hotel is a historic manor house with charming rooms and utterly romantic outdoor locations that are just perfect for couples who want to keep their ‘big day’ small. Set in an enchanting, privately-run estate less than ten miles from Plymouth and easily accessible from Devon and Cornwall, Kitley is a place where you can truly relax and enjoy every moment as you begin your married life together.
Named ‘Best Wedding Venue’ in the Devon Tourism Awards 2019 and ‘Hidden Gem of the Year’ in the international LUX Life Magazine awards, you are in safe hands entrusting this most important of occasions to us. Our Wedding Planner will help you create the day of your dreams. Your day, your way. Right down to the last detail.
From the moment you turn into the long driveway which meanders down to Kitley House, there’s a feeling of escapism as the glorious estate unfolds around you. The house itself offers a wonderful sense of space, without feeling cavernous. Open fires in the colder months add a warming glow and our friendly staff always provide an exceptionally warm welcome.
Inside the 500-year-old, Grade-I-listed house, the sweeping staircase makes for a dramatic entrance to your nuptials. In the reception hall, heraldic shields illustrating Kitley’s family history add a quirky charm. The overall feel of the place is ‘authentic country house’ with contemporary touches - think original stained-glass, sparkling chandeliers, ornate plasterwork, wood panelling and tall windows with gorgeous views.
The simple elegance of our Morning Room, painted in a soft green and bathed in light from a huge window which overlooks the fountain garden, makes the perfect backdrop for an intimate ceremony and wedding breakfast - just for two or for up to twenty guests.
Outside, we have two licensed locations sure to make you swoon: step across a rustic bridge to The Island for a wonderful lakeside ceremony or exchange your vows in our charming summer house overlooking a timeless landscape of rolling pasture and ancient woodland.
For private time together, ensconce yourselves in a suite of gorgeous, upstairs rooms with views over the estate. Step down from your bedroom to a wonderfully secluded room, bathed in light from dual-aspect windows, perfect for a quiet breakfast for two or a truly romantic, candlelit evening meal. We source our food as locally as possible, some from the estate itself, and it is lovingly prepared for you in our kitchens to your individual tastes.
With your personal preferences and your budget for your special day firmly front and centre, there is nothing ‘standard’ about our wedding offering. We will create a bespoke day with as much or as little input as you wish from us to make your wedding day unforgettable. What’s not to love about that?
