Higher Holcombe is a gorgeously quirky, countryside wedding venue near Ottery St. Mary in Devon. At its heart is a unique party barn - The Old Dairy - which has been elegantly restored with a fabulous neutral pallette - perfect for you to decorate with whatever your party vibe is. With uninterrupted countryside views and cosy underfloor heating, it's perfect for year round comfort. The hill-top willow cathedral is really rather something special - a wonderful setting for you to make promises to each other surrounded by your family and friends.
Facilities and Capacity
The Old Dairy can accommodate 80 - 100 dining guests and all 30 acres of woodland, meadows, orchards, gardens and courtyards are yours - with farmhouse accommodation for 10 included in the price (great for getting ready in a relaxed and spacious place) - and with glamping options for a further 22 in funky Lotus Belle tents. There's an outside chill zone for guests who want to take a break from the dance floor and a bonfire 'boma',cool Masaai art and complete with seating, cozy blankets, and wood for burning. If you want a chilled and relaxed wedding party - this place is for you!
Higher Holcombe prizes itself by being on your side. They really want you to have the wedding celebration that reflects you, your interests and personaliies. A variety of in-house catering choices is available if you want to keep things simple, but they want couples to use outside catering if they prefer! There are no corkage charges, so you can provide your own drinks or hire in bar services. You can pick foliage and flowers from nearby meadows and hedgerows to decorate the event space. Gorgeous uplighting of mature trees and inside the Old Dairy make this place really magical. Other services include:
- Easy access ramps
- Catering services (if required)
