Steeped in history, Pynes House is an exclusive, country house wedding venue near Exeter in Devon set in its own 37 acre park. Believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, Pynes House is a wonderful place to host your perfect day. Set in the Exe Valley, surrounded by the beautiful Devon countryside, but only 3 miles from Exeter city centre.
Pynes House, an elegant Country House wedding venue, has recently undergone an extensive restoration and refurbishment and provides a romantic setting where couples can choose their own suppliers to reflect their own preferences.
Built in the beautiful Exe Valley in about 1700, Pynes House makes the ideal year-round private retreat for intimate groups or larger weddings. During the summer, make the most of their ornamental terraces, lawns and pretty woodland, and in the winter enjoy the cosy romance of the beautiful interiors, stunning views and open log fires.
Alongside luxurious accommodation in 12 bedroom suites, there are a number of magnificent licensed state rooms, with capacity to seat 96 for a sit-down meal.
