Imagine a wildly romantic Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor set in 3,500 acres of one of Devon's finest country estates, close to the sea for long coastal walks, yet just a short drive from the historic city of Exeter.

Push open the broad oak door of this magnificent country house to find yourself in the elegant Great Hall where a huge blazing log fire awaits you. As you step into the warmth, luxury and tranquillity of this comfortable country family home, you cannot fail to notice the uniquely informal and relaxed atmosphere - there's a cosy bar and welcoming sitting rooms with squashy curl-up-and-read-a-book sofas. The House is principally Elizabethan - all gables, finials and transom windows.
Weddings at Combe House Devon
When you discover Combe House, a wildly romantic 15-bedroom Elizabethan Manor steeped in history and heritage and Idyllic thatch cottage with seculded walled garden.
Hidden in 3500 acres of lush countryside, where Arabian horses and pheasants roam freely, you know you've found 'somewhere different, somewhere special' for your wedding celebrations.
We are fully licensed for civil ceremonies with a choice of 4 elegant rooms to choose from perfect for you and 100 guests or 150 with a marquee on the croquet lawn.
There is also the pretty Church of St. Michael's in picturesque Gittisham, once described by Prince Charles as "The ideal English village" - cob and thatch cottages, village green and babbling brook.
After taking your vows or church blessing we can arrange for a horse and carriage to take you up the mile of winding drive to Combe for your reception of 2 to 100 guests or 150 with a marquee on the croquet lawn.
Combe House is yours for the day and we do everything possible to make your wishes come true.
Our Manager, Wedding Co-ordinator and Team give personal attention from the early planning stages through to organising the very finest detail and to supporting you on the day. Our Head Chef also meets up with wedding clients to help create a bespoke menu and Ken will be happy to advise which wines from his cellar would be most suitable to accompany your wedding breakfast and budget.
Mark Lovell, Manager says "Relaxed informality is top of the agenda with emphasis on ensuring you feel totally at ease - almost as if you were having a wedding in your own home, but with all the hard work taken away". Why not come along for a visit. We will be delighted to show you around and discuss what is important to you for your special day.
