Weddings & Celebrations at The Horn of Plenty

by Katie 15. November 2016 11:23

At The Horn of Plenty, we understand the importance of creating a day that nobody will forget and where the memories go on to last a lifetime.  That’s why we’ve just been voted “Best Wedding Venue in Devon” in the 2016 West Country Wedding Awards.  It’s an award based entirely on the feedback from recent brides and grooms, so it reflects how well we perform, week in and week out.

Beautifully bespoke

Every wedding here is completely bespoke.  Our friendly expert wedding planners Julie and Emma will help design, organise and implement your Big Day to be perfectly tailored to you.   From your own bespoke menu to dedicated service from an attentive team of staff; from luxury rooms to exquisite grounds, we have the substance and expertise to create your perfect day.

Whether you’re looking for an intimate ceremony or a fairy tale marquee wedding for 200 guests, everything will be crafted to your individual hopes, dreams and budget, creating for you a wedding that is both lavish and unique.

If you wish, you can enjoy exclusive use of our country manor for a day or a weekend. We can offer exclusive use for 40 – 90 guests in the Main House, or up to 200 guests in a marquee located in our stunning grounds.

For those who would prefer a smaller event, we offer both afternoon weddings and weddings without exclusive use.

A reputation for excellence

Our romantic country house hotel is home to one of the South West’s top restaurants.  Over the years we have earned a reputation for superb cuisine (3 AA rosettes), outstanding service, elegant surroundings and show-stopping views overlooking the Tamar Valley. We host a number of Chef’s weddings each year and are widely regarded as the region’s best wedding venue for foodies.

We are proud to have won a whole host of awards, including  “Devon Wedding Venue of the Year” (West Country Wedding Awards 2013 and 2016), “Devon Small Hotel of the Year” 2014/15, and “National Small Hotel of the Year” 2015/16 (Silver award)

A show-round is by far the best way to find out if we’re your perfect match – please do get in touch to arrange your viewing.  Wedding Co-ordinators Julie Leivers and Emma Mulford will be more than happy to give you an exclusive tour of this beautiful venue and discuss your specific requirements.
