If you’re looking for a Devon wedding venue, you’ll find Lakeview Manor hard to beat, with beautiful private grounds and exceptional facilities. Our idyllic setting creates the perfect backdrop for civil marriage ceremonies and wedding receptions. The manor house hotel and gardens are a world apart from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and are the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs. And to be certain your day is as special as you always imagined, our dedicated, professional wedding planner is available to you throughout all the planning stages.
Nestled within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in East Devon, our charming country manor hotel is complete with 45 acres of beautiful grounds and gardens.
Our Garden Room is a stunning, light filled room with marble tile flooring and high ceilings, which overlooks the front lake and gardens, providing a picturesque backdrop to your I dos and for memories that last a lifetime. Leading out from the garden room, you arrive straight onto our expansive front lawn, which provides a refreshing location for your drinks reception, where your guests can mingle and sip their drinks as you enjoy having your photos taken nearby. In the evening, this space also serves as the setting for your evening entertainment and celebrations, with the capacity to include an extra 40 guests.
As a licensed venue, we would love to provide the full experience for you and host a civil ceremony in our Garden Room overlooking the lake and gardens, comfortably seating up to 60 guests. Of course, if you choose a church wedding we’ll welcome you back to the Garden Room for your wedding breakfast and you’ll have full use of our grounds for photos and drinks.
We’ve a choice of menus for you to choose from to suit your tastes and your guests’ dietary needs, as well as canapés and children’s meals for your very young guests too (highchairs also available on request). We can play any music of your choice throughout the day, and offer 1/2 bottle of house wine per person and prosecco for speeches as part of your package.
We’re licensed for up to 100 guests. You can book your own band or disco or we’ll be happy to help. Put your dancing shoes on, have your first dance and we’re off.
Recently refurbished, there are 15 rooms in total including the Honeymoon Suite for exclusive use at your wedding. Twin, double and family rooms are all en-suite and provide tea and coffee making facilities. After your guests enjoy a restful overnight stay here in the hotel, they will be greeted with our infamous Lakeview Manor ‘signature breakfast’ the following morning to complete the experience.
On site, we have 8 individual lodges available to rent which are the ideal retreat for those guests looking to stay a few days longer or make the perfect accommodation for additional guests attending the wedding not staying in the hotel. Please note these are at an additional cost. Guests can choose from two or three-bedroom lodges, all spotlessly clean and with open plan living and dining areas. Many come with their own hot tubs and we also have pet friendly lodges.
