A lovingly restored 17th century Cider Barn, a Stable transformed and a secret Walled Garden, all with breath-taking views over the Blackdown Hills and nestled in the heart of the glorious Devon countryside. Upton exudes warmth and charm and offers a stylish yet relaxed setting for an idyllic wedding. Located on the edge of the market town of Cullompton, between Exeter and Taunton, it is easily accessible from the M5.
This much-loved family home offers complete exclusivity for weddings of up to 156 guests. The four spaces have all been sympathetically restored and designed to create a unique blend of traditional and contemporary architecture.
“Upton was designed for couples looking for a venue where they could relax and feel at home yet still feel like a VIP. We have such wonderful memories of our own wedding day at Upton and hope others will be equally captivated”,say owners of family-run Upton Barn & Walled Garden, Claire & Richard Down.
Registered for civil ceremonies, couples can choose to say their vows either beneath the beautifully hand-crafted oak arbour within the Walled Garden or inside The Cider Barn with its romantic lighting, soaring oak trusses, polished concrete floor and floor to ceiling window bringing the outside in. Both provide the perfect spot for wedding ceremonies.
Following on from the success of The Cider Barn and Walled Garden, Upton undertook a second project in 2017 to transform a stable barn. Continuing the theme of blending old with new, The Stable Barn is a characterful space with a contemporary twist. The dramatic full height window fills the room with daylight whilst the elegant bespoke chandeliers, wall lights and timber interiors give an added comforting warmth to this versatile space; for a memorable wedding feast.
The Press is a chic bar where guests can relax on the soft seating, socialise over a artisanal drink or cosy-up around the wood-burning stove. On warmer days, guests are welcome to enjoy the adjacent Walled Garden or explore the extensive grounds beyond.
As evening falls and the gardens light up, guests can relax in The Walled Garden seated under the stars, listening to the crackle of the fire pits or dance the night away in The Cider Barn; a magical end to a special day.
Couples may indulge in their own personal choice of suppliers to deliver the stylish and seamless service they require according to their vision and budget.
Claire, Richard and their team are on-hand throughout to guide and support you as much or as little as you need to ensure you have the wedding of your dreams.
All areas of the barn and gardens are suitable for disabled access with gentle sloping walkways and a temporary ramp is used to access the lower section of the garden. There is easy access to the disabled toilets inside the cider barn.
Upton Barn & Walled Garden Smashed It! Nick and I decided on Upton Barn & Walled Gardens as we stepped through the front door for the first time and have not looked back since! It is the most naturally beautiful venue with a stunning outlook and as we knew our wedding could not be weather dependent (we actually had every weather on the day) we needed somewhere that would shine come rain or snow! The other essential to our big day was for a relaxed, friendly ambience as all we genuinely wanted was to have all our loved ones around us having the best time! Natalie, Phoebe and Rosie each took it in turns to put us at ease and coordinated our wedding in the run up and on the day – it went seamlessly, and you would not have known anyone was keeping track of times or schedules. Nothing was too big an ask and they have been very efficient throughout – we really could not have stumbled across a more welcoming, yet professional team and family that encompass Upton Barn & Walled Gardens. They made our day one we will remember for ever and many of our guests commented on this too!

The Best Day Ever! From the moment we walked into Upton Barn to view as a potential wedding venue we fell in love and knew it was the perfect place for us, we booked it there and then. The setting is just beautiful and the team made us feel so relaxed and welcome. They go above and beyond to help and support you on the lead up to your wedding, with the vendors directory, recommended suppliers and regular email check-ins and planning meetings. We felt so looked after and totally relaxed. Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more! The day ran so smoothly and our wonderful wedding coordinators, Natalie and Rosie, did a fantastic job. We felt so special and all our guests said how amazing and relaxed everything was. We cannot recommend Upton enough. If you are looking for a stunning, versatile venue with as much support and guidance offered as part of the package then look no further. Upton is a truly magical place and it really was the best day of our lives!

Incredible Day! We fell in love with this venue over a year before we set our date. Everything just looked so wonderful. Our wedding day was perfect we cannot thank our wedding co-ordinators enough. Both Rosie and Victoria were amazing on the day, you wouldn’t know they were there – they blended in so well. They were always on hand when we needed them. They were also on point when there was an emergency red wine spillage on my dress, they jumped straight on it to try and help me out. We cannot thank them enough and would highly recommend this venue for any wedding.

The day was faultless and ran so smoothly thanks to the wonderful staff who put in 110% to make our day perfect. The communication throughout was brilliant and nothing ever felt like too much trouble. Natalie and Rosie coordinated our day and did such a fantastic job – loads of our guests commented on how lovely and helpful they were and they really went above and beyond.
