A lovingly restored 17th Century cider barn and a secret walled garden with breathtaking views over the Blackdown Hills, all set within 160 acres of organic farmland. Upton is a unique, yet relaxed Devon venue which can now be exclusively yours for the wedding of your dreams. Located on the edge of the market town of Cullompton, between Exeter and Taunton, it is easily accessible from the M5.
Following an exciting renovation which has breathed new life into the old cider barn and secret walled garden, Upton have successfully merged the barn’s original character with stylish and contemporary architecture, such as dramatic full height glazing and unique polished concrete floors creating a stunning space for any wedding celebration.
Upton is still a much loved family home – Registered for civil ceremonies accommodating up to 120 guests, couples wishing to marry at Upton can choose to say their vows in the cosy Cider Barn exhibiting romantic lighting, a wood burning stove and underfloor heating throughout, or lovers of the great outdoors may choose to marry under the beautifully hand-crafted oak arbour within the secluded walled garden. For those who would prefer a religious ceremony, Upton can equally cater for just your wedding breakfast and evening reception.
“Couples looking for an atmospheric and romantic barn venue where they can feel relaxed will fall instantly in love with the magical and character-filled conversion, whilst nature lovers will adore our picturesque outdoor ceremony setting” say owners of family-run Upton Barn & Walled Garden, Claire & Richard Down.
