Colehayes Park is a beautiful Grade II Listed, granite-built, Georgian mansion that sits in 20 acres of private woodland. Located on the edge of the stunning Dartmoor National Park, Colehayes is one of the largest self-catering accommodations available in the UK, sleeping up to 80 guests on site.
With the Manor located inside Dartmoor National Park, you are never far from the breath-taking views the moor has to offer. The famous Haytor Rock, Hound Tor and Widecombe-in-the-Moor are all a short drive away; whilst the beauty of the Devon coastline is within a 30 minute drive from Colehayes.
Colehayes Park is the perfect venue for those looking for somewhere relaxed to extend their wedding celebrations over a long weekend or whole week (rather than a single day). Not only is the house a fully-licensed wedding venue but they can also sleep up to 70 guests in the manor and a further 11 in Cork Tree Cottage. This offers a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy the company of friends and family for a longer period of time and in a more intimate setting.
They are also unique as a DIY wedding venue which means that you have the choice and freedom to create your own perfectly individual wedding. Despite its size, the house has a informal and cosy atmosphere, making it feel like a giant home-from-home.
You can hire the manor for a long weekend from 3pm Friday to 10am Monday, or you can choose to hire the manor for a week. This is especially popular in the summer as your guests can stay and spend more quality time together, enjoying the beautiful surrounding areas of South Devon.
They are licensed for indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies in 5 locations. For indoor ceremonies, they are licensed in the oak panelled front hall and the beautifully styled living room. Outside, they are licensed for ceremonies at the front of the house, the granite steps leading into the gardens and their lovely hand crafted custom-made wooden wedding pagoda.
As an exclusive use venue, you won’t be disturbed by other people; the house is entirely yours. The manor can comfortably host weddings for up to 150 people and many couples opt for casual dining (such as a hog roast or buffet) with seating across different reception rooms. Couples wanting a formal sit down wedding breakfast for 90+ guests can do so in a marquee of their choice in the beautiful grounds.
They have no corkage and pride themselves in being transparent in all their fees. They understand that planning a wedding can be a big job so they strive to be as helpful as possible; no question or concern is too big or small.
