hank you so much for making Oliver and Kay’s wedding day so special. Your professionalism and your proficient attention to quality and detail was truly amazing! You made a wonderful day absolutely flawless. Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day as fabulous as it was. Everyone has said what an amazing place you have and how wonderful and relaxed it all was, and that is all down to you and your wonderful staff. Everything was just perfect and everyone is talking about how utterly divine the food was. We shall definitely see you again very soon. So so many thanks.

Just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and your wonderful staffor making it a very special day for us. We had the perfect day and would not have changed a thing. We have had numerous compliments from family and friends about the exceptional venue and marvellous food – and of course we agree. We can’t begin to explain just how thrilled we both were with every aspect of our wedding day.

I just wanted to let you know how very special you made Kay’s wedding last Saturday. Your attention to detail and lovely, bubbly nature made it so easy for us all. The surroundings, food and your team that looked after us really went the extra mile. Of course, your new rooms are just a delight!

Thank you so much to all the staff for making our wedding such a wonderful experience. From the waiters and waitresses serving the food, to the incredibly delicious creations by the chefs, to the beautifully presented rooms. Thank you also to Julie and all the team for organising everything with such precision, we loved everything, and will be returning for our 1st anniversary.

Thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. From the moment we saw the venue and met you, we knew this was the place to hold our wedding and we were not disappointed. Everyone is commenting on what a wonderful day it was and how beautiful the venue is. The food was incredible and people are still talking about it. Thank you also to you Julie. You helped the day go perfectly and made me feel fery special and very calm too. Which helped me enjoy every second. Thank you,

You gave us the best wedding possible. All the way from booking you have been brilliant and helped with advice. You were understanding and we knew you wouldn’t let us down. The whole day was just perfect. The room looked amazing, everyone worked so hard to make it a truly wonderful and magical day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for making Charlotte’s and Andy’s wedding day so wonderful. We have heard nothing but great praise from all the guests that attended about how fab the wedding was, and this was in no small part to the meticulousness of your work. Clearly, the venue is stunning, albeit even more enhanced when the sum is shining. What was even more stunning was the quality of service that you and your staff provided. The day just seemed to whizz by and this was simply because I did not have to worry about a single thing and had a smile on my face all day long. Because of the rain you imperceptibly changed the procedures from an outside to an indoor reception and juggled the changing seating and serving arrangements most expertly. The food was outstanding and was a real highlight that everyone commented on: send our thanks to your kitchen staff and chef. Your serving staff were fab: they could not do enough and I heard one even stayed beyond her finishing time because she was enjoying the wedding so much. They were ever present to attend to everyones needs but not at all obtrusive: I can just remember plates coming in and out and drinks being served as if by (pixie!) magic! Having organised corporate functions myself at work I know that a completely seamless event is both very difficult to achieve and is sometimes not appreciated by those attending: be assured I have the greatest admiration for your efforts and that of your staff. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you and your hotel: the accolades you have won are completely justified. Keep up the good work and all the best for the future.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Accommodation wonderful, wedding organised and carried out to perfection. Setting beautiful. The only thing better than the food and the accommodation was the staff, an absolute credit and we cannot sing their praises loud enough. You have made our day and our wedding. Thank you to all

We would just like to drop you and your fantastic team a line and say thank you so, so much for an amazing, wonderful and perfect day. The welcome, service, food, total hospitality along with a beautiful, comfortable venue with stunning views made our day so complete! You so deserve the fantastic reputation you have. We will continue to blow your trumpet and return as soon as we can!

Words cannot express how amazing our special day was at your venue. The whole weekend exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived on the Friday, you and your team were more than welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests commented on how beautiful the house is and how exceptional the food was. Julie, your organisation meant the day ran perfectly; neither of us were under any pressure and we enjoyed the day immensely! A BIG thank you. We are already planning when we will come back for our first anniversary! A heartfelt thank you!

The day was amazing. We could not have asked for anything more and could not have found a better venue. You were so helpful and lovely to work with, and also so flexible and accommodating to our last minute needs. Many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the venue is, and how amazing the food was. We will be back!

We would like to thank you and your staff for giving us the best wedding day we could have wished for. You looked after our guests and ourselves like’ lords and ladies’ from the moment we arrived until we left. The staff were very courteous and attentive, yet never in the way. Our food was exquisite, we cannot praise your chefs highly enough for both taste and presentation. Specialities prepared for our dairy intolerant guest, over every course were a real credit to your team. The ambience of your hotel, the staff, the food, the views makes you well worthy of the ‘Best Wedding Venue in Devon for 2013’ in our opinion. Thank you very much

Dear Julie and the “Angels from The Horn of Plenty” We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for helping us have a wedding far beyond our expectations.... and let’s be honest, our expectations were pretty high in the first place. We were fully aware the food would be second to none. What we hadn’t banked upon was the way you and your charming staff picked up any loose strands in our planning (eg the presentation of the sweet station) and sorted it all out without even coming up to us! All our guests from London now have the impression that everyone in Devon is like your staff. Ha! All evening they were saying how polished the service was and how beautiful the hotel is, with attention to detail in the tiniest of things. Oh and an ace wedding cocktail. WELL DONE!

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding the amazing day that it was. Scott - the food was incredible and lots of people said it was the best food they'd had at a wedding. As massive foodies, this was exactly what we wanted from our wedding! Julie - the day ran without a hitch (except the one we wanted!) and that was in no small part down to you. We would recommend The Horn of Plenty to anyone and wish we could get married again. Love and best wishes Katie and Sean, March 2014

Thank you so very much for making our wedding day so wonderful and perfect. The attention to detail and the care taken was evident throughout the whole day. The food was divine and still being talked about by all! Thank you all - see you soon!

Wow! The Horn of Plenty has it all! A picturesque venue in an exceptional location with super attentive staff. It wraps around you and your guests to to make you feel utterly relaxed. It feels like your own home, rather than a wedding-factory with lots of personal touches inside the house and natural beauty in abundance outside. Julie as Front of House and Scott the Head Chef deserve a special mention as they both excel at what they do. All our guests raved about the rising Michelin-star quality food

Thank you all for making sure that our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every way..... The service was exceptional from start to finish, the food was out of this world (a fact confirmed again and again by our guests), the location and the setting was stunning, the attention to detail was incredible. If we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing. Without exception, all our guests proclaimed it was the best wedding they had ever been to. What more could we ask for? Many, many thanks"

Thank you ....for making our day more special than we could have ever imagined. From the day we chose The Horn, Julie has always been there to help with every enquiry. Our guests could not believe how beautiful the house was and also the views... it really is a gem! I cannot put into words how lovely the food was.... many people said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.... There was nothing about our wedding day we would have changed, it was perfect"
