Nestled in the secluded rolling hills of Devon, is Colehayes Park, a grade II listed, granite built Georgian mansion and DIY wedding venue. Standing in 20 acres of woodland, river, gardens and lake in the Dartmoor National Park and with spectacular views, this is a truly idyllic backdrop for your unique wedding day.
If you dream of celebrating with friends and family for the entire weekend – or perhaps even longer – then Colehayes Park is the perfect choice for you. Available for exclusive hire for up to one week and with accommodation for 70, you can enjoy a private and tranquil stay with opportunity to explore all the local area has to offer.
At Colehayes we invite you to make your day as unique and personal as you wish. With no set packages, in-house caterers or set suppliers, you are free to bring each of your ideal elements to our characterful venue in order to create your perfect day. The choice is yours, whether you would like a classic affair with a horse drawn carriage and string quarter, a proper country wedding with wellies, tractors and haybales, a rustic theme with bunting and tea parties, a boho dream with acoustic guitars and flowy dresses or full-on festival wedding with live rock music outdoors, giant tipis and campfires, Colehayes is the ideal venue for you.
Registered for civil ceremonies, you can host your entire celebration here from start to finish, with no need to worry about the coordination and cost of transport. With three outdoor spaces and two reception rooms to choose from for your ceremony Colehayes can cater for different tastes and sizes of weddings. The rooms within the Georgian house are full of character and original features, adding old-style glamour and grandeur to the occasion but while still retaining a giant home from home feel.
