Hartland Abbey was completed in 1157 in a beautiful, winding valley leading to a wild and rocky Atlantic cove. It was gifted by Henry VIII to the Sergeant of The Wine Cellar at Hampton Court, an ancestor of Sir Hugh Stucley whose home it is today. The House was remodelled in the 18th and 19th centuries; consequently it contains Mediaeval, Queen Anne, Georgian, Regency and Victorian architecture and decoration. The three rooms which are licensed for civil ceremonies span these different periods in history. All are used regularly by the family giving them a homely, lived-in feel.
There are also two outdoor venues with a romantic difference.
The Drawing Room, with its magnificent Victorian decoration was completed in 1850 by Sir George Gilbert Scott, the famous architect.
The Billiard Room is Georgian. The pale blue decoration, hung with family portraits, makes this a very dignified but light and airy setting.
The Library, is a beautiful Regency room with a very welcoming feel.
The Summerhouse, set in the beautiful Rose Garden, is approached along a very long and natural ‘aisle’ through two lower gardens.
The Gazebo is a tiny, eccentric and romantic location, perched on the side of a hill overlooking the Atlantic ocean.
Marquee wedding receptions can be held on the west lawn by the House
