The feel

Bickleigh Castle is an 11th-century piece of history set within 30 acres of picturesque landscape in the Devon countryside. This is an opportunity not only to be close to nature but to touch history in such a romantic setting: your Civil Ceremony takes place in the Great Hall & your blessing in our Chapel which was built way back in the 6th Century and stands intact today as probably the oldest ‘living’ building in Devon.

Whether you are getting married or renewing your wedding vows our experienced team will arrange all the details in the Castle, leaving you to concentrate on the personal fun elements that together make the perfect event.

All our bespoke weddings include:

Exclusive use of Bickleigh Castle estate from Friday 5.00pm till Sunday 11.00am

Welcome tea

Civil Ceremony in the Great Hall

6th Century Chapel Blessing

Drinks reception on the lawn
