Prepare to be enchanted by the tranquillity and far-reaching views across miles of rolling hills as soon as you turn down the private drive to Hawke Barn. The 16th century former threshing barn sits amidst 250 acres in mid-Devon, close to the picturesque hamlet of Stoodleigh, offering historic charm and stirring rural beauty in abundance.
The recently renovated barn boasts high open-vaulted ceilings and contemporary full-height windows with heavy oak beams, exposed stonework and flagstone floors. Bathed in natural light, the timeless and natural aesthetic brings a blank canvas for you to make your mark on your special day. With the main doors flung open, you can enjoy the sheltered south-facing courtyard, perfect for welcome drinks or an al fresco first dance, while terraces and outdoor seating mean you and up to 60 guests can make the most of the scenic setting during the warmer months. Equally captivating in the depths of winter, the barn’s wood-burning stove creates a cosy space for candlelit feasting and festivities.
When it’s time to rest your heads, take advantage of luxurious accommodation for the wedding party in the west wing of the farmhouse and space for 15 more in two holiday cottages as well as camping options. Stay for two, three or seven nights and savour a cherished break in this Devon idyll.
