Spanning acres of picturesque scenery where exquisite parkland meets wooded glades cloaked in wild flowers, and mystical follies and temples are scattered throughout a river valley, Castle Hill boasts a fairytale-worthy air of romance. Its rare choice of backdrops makes the North Devon venue as versatile as it is dreamlike, offering couples a grand country house wedding through to a relaxed rustic celebration in the woods.

At its heart, the historic mansion house – home to the Fortescue family – offers a timelessly beautiful wedding on an exclusive use basis, with a series of elegantly appointed spaces and views across the grounds for small-scale celebrations through to receptions for up to 300 guests. The restored Holwell Temple is a truly magical setting for a woodland wedding, perched high on a hill overlooking the river valley and marrying a Roman-inspired exterior with a character-filled rustic interior. Then there’s Satyr’s Temple – a perfect option for an outdoor ceremony, nestled alongside the woodland and winding river. With acres of picturesque gardens to wander and a heady choice of photographic backdrops, revel in the romance of this extraordinary venue for the most wonderful of wedding days.
