With its rugged, sprawling expanses and ancient Tor-dotted heights, the romance of Dartmoor is undeniable, its untamed beauty making a wildly atmospheric backdrop for a wedding. Located right alongside the meandering River Dart with its granite bolders, Badgers Holt sits in a private, secluded and sheltered location in the heart of the moor.
Badgers Holt is a rustic, wildly romantic and rugged venue with a choice of spaces for ceremonies and receptions, including the Riverside Garden Room, Banquet Fireside Room and a bandstand in the garden as well as the option of a ceremony righ on the riverbank.
A beautiful setting for a wedding through all the seasons, Badgers Holt offers particular enchantment during the winter months. Imagine marrying amidst the crackle of a log fire and the flicker of candlelight, then stepping outside for a bracing walk on the moors, hand in hand, basking in that ‘just married’ feeling amidst the wild beauty of the ancient landscape. Returning to the warm and cosy climes of the venue for a veritable feast – whether it’s a hearty hog roast or a three-course banquet – you can dance the night away beneath a carnival of twinkling fairy lights. Complete with self-catering apartments and a wedding suite (sleeping up to 24 guests), you might round off the festivities by curling up in front of the fire, with the rushing waters of the River Dart and the deep Dartmoor night at the window. Dreamy.
