The Setting

Just 10 minutes from Exeter, Harefield Barn feels like it’s a world away. Located on a family farm in the beautiful Devon countryside, this carefully designed venue has flexibility and personal service at its heart.

Making the most of its elevated position, Harefield Barn is flooded with light from the huge expanse of windows providing fabulous far reaching views over Devon’s rolling hills. The terrace gives way to lawned areas, great for those garden games and children’s play, and is flanked by a wildflower meadow and cornfield with cider orchards nearby, making it perfect for some very special photos.

Exeter St Davids station is only 10 minutes away by taxi, as is Crediton. They also have great parking and the ability to leave cars overnight so your guests don’t have to worry about toasting your happiness! There is good access for mini-buses too.

The Vibe

Harefield Barn has a fresh modern appearance, but has plenty of characterful features such as stunning scissor beams in the hall and a cozy wood-burning stove in the bar. Once described as ‘barn chic’ the decoration is kept to a minimum so couples can use it as a blank canvas to create their own style of event should they wish. Underfloor heating throughout makes it perfect whatever the weather, and on a lovely day, bifold doors open onto the terrace from both the bar and main hall, making it a truly inside/outside venue.

Versatility is key, with seven different locations licensed for marriage ceremonies ranging from 2 to 300 people (150 seated or 300 Standing). There are also no less than 5 beautiful village churches within 3 miles, so Harefield Barn also makes the perfect spot for a fabulous rustic reception.

This is truly a family business, and they want to keep it that way! In order to maintain the personal nature of what they offer, they have chosen to limit the number of weddings they host each year so the team can give each one the attention it deserves. Therefore, they normally only offer extended hire periods at Harefield Barn, giving you time to relax and enjoy the experience of a lifetime. Although, as always, they try to be flexible and inclusive – so you can always ask for other options!

Although they don’t have any accommodation on site, there are plenty of wonderful B&B’s, Cottages and hotels within easy reach, and you also have the opportunity to camp if you wish. There is a great party house and a beautiful cottage complex nearby, perfect for a whole weekend family gathering

Their prices are kept simple to help you with your planning, so they include many little extras that you may (or may not!) choose for your day:




Although they are mainly considered a ‘dry hire’ venue, the team are there to help you every step of the way and would be delighted to recommend a fabulous wedding planner who could offer you a full planning service.

They will certainly have a member of staff on site from the moment you arrive until your last guest leaves (with additional help to move furniture etc if required). Again, flexibility is key, so if you have a particular service plan you require, please ask.
