If a Grade-I listed Regency country house is the stuff of your wedding dreams, then prepare to fall hard for Rockbeare Manor. Although located only six miles from Exeter’s city centre, the exclusive-use venue sits amongst 100 acres of stunning Devon parkland, transporting you and your guests to a tranquil rural idyll.
The lovingly restored country house blends grand proportions and stately features with modern comforts and contemporary elegance. From the light, majestic climes of the Ballroom to the ornamental plasterwork and original chandelier of the Dining Room, the interiors fuse opulence and romance, while the grounds offer beautiful gardens and parkland for guests to roam and endless scenic backdrops for photographs.
An inviting new addition to Rockbeare Manor provides yet another reason to wed in this outstanding spot. Having undergone a recent refurbishment, The Dairy is a beautiful bijou cottage located just behind the main house. Designed for couples (or the bride and her ‘maids, groom and his groomsmen) to spend the night before the wedding, expect all the mod cons such as a wireless sound system, open plan lounge area which doubles up perfectly as getting ready space with sumptuous interiors and decadent touches for a stay that’s as stylish as it is snug.
Comfortably accommodating four (with a trundle bed and sofa bed for an additional two guests), you’ll also receive a breakfast hamper to tuck into on the morning of the wedding as you prepare for the party ahead. What’s more, the team is currently working on the adjoining barn to create preparation stations with mirrors and seating as well as an additional bathroom so the entire bridal party can get ready in luxe comfort together.
