we love...

Rich with nostalgic romance but devoid of rustic clichés, this style-infused property is steeped in history and is believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility. Pyne’s house has also hosted royalty, including Queen Victoria – a myrtle bush is said to have been planted from a sprig from her wedding bouquet.

What's So Special About Pyne's House?

Pynes House is an enchanting country house wedding venue, encapsulating the magic of Devon, England. Nestled within Devon’s beautiful Exe Valley, with rolling hills that stretch into the horizon, and an air of relaxation that prompts a deep exhale from all who step onto the soil.

Pynes House is your home from home, exclusively hired as the backdrop to your blossoming love story.

The impressive tree-lined driveway heightens expectations on approach to the main house. From the entrance, heavy doors hint at the property’s past life and open to the impressive stone-clad entrance hall within. Inside is a blend of bold proportions and elegant simplicity. Taking inspiration from nature’s own colour palette, the interiors are stylish yet sympathetic to the house’s past – the perfect blank canvas to paint as your own.

Special, memorable events are created in locations such as this, that offer infinite possibilities with aesthetics that inform styling but never rigidly define layouts or the flow of events. Whether feasting with friends in one of the State Rooms, or being surrounded by sparklers beneath a sky of stars, a day to remember is guaranteed.

At Pynes House, every detail is designed to immerse you in the quintessential English countryside experience. The sprawling estate becomes your personal sanctuary, ensuring that from the moment you arrive, every corner, from the fragrant rose gardens to the intricately adorned rooms, is exclusively yours.

Linger on the lawn, perfect for classic English garden games. Engage in a friendly match of croquet or simply enjoy the rolling views of the Devon hills with your loved ones. Adjacently, our dedicated BBQ area awaits, ideal for relaxed gatherings or pre-wedding celebrations, adding a touch of rustic charm to your English manor experience.

Inside, our accommodations are an embodiment of luxury. Able to cater to up to 28 guests, our 12 individually designed bedrooms blend contemporary comfort with classic English charm. Awake to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee from the Guest Pantry and revel in the anticipatory joy of the cherished moments still to come. Enhancing your stay, we are happy to offer a full bar service, boasting an expertly curated wine list, that is ready to add a touch of elegance to your gatherings, ensuring every sip complements the occasion.

With Pynes House, you’re not merely securing a venue; you’re embracing an English heritage, a sanctuary where centuries of love stories intertwine with yours, making every moment as timeless as it’s setting.

What Couples Say

“We fell in love with Pynes House the second we arrived. The iconic driveway stole our hearts immediately and after seeing the elegant and airy rooms inside, we knew it was the place we would get married. All of the team were fantastic, so attentive and went above and beyond to ensure the smooth running of our day. It truly was a fairytale wedding for us, made possible by the most beautiful setting and the most amazing team working behind the scenes to make everything perfect.”

What Couples Say

“We booked Pynes House as our wedding venue without having visited, so that made it all the sweeter when we showed up and it felt like we walked into a fairy tale. The house is spectacular and the grounds were absolutely beautiful with the colourful gardens and the rolling hills in the background. We had an amazing sunny day one night and a rainy day another night, but regardless of the weather conditions, the venue’s charm shone through. We couldn’t imagine a better venue and location and we’re so happy we chose it sight unseen.”
