Bickleigh Castle



EX16 8RP


Bickleigh Castle is a Grade 1 Listed 11th Century wedding venue in Devon, which has been home to centuries of Knights, Baronets, Ladies and Earls, and visited by Kings & Queens across the ages.

The Castle nestles warmly in a secluded valley in the glorious Devon countryside. With the babbling water of the River Exe meandering its way past the Castle gates and breezes rustling the leaves of the encircling woods, arriving at this fairy tale setting is like stepping into a hamlet lost in time.

If you are seeking a romantic, intimate and unusual wedding venue, Bickleigh Castle is ideal and has several adaptable spaces both inside and out depending on your requirements, including 18 bedrooms.  The piece de resistance is the Bridal Suite boasting an impressive carved Tudor four-poster bed.

The recently renovated Great Hall is licensed for both civil wedding and partnership ceremonies and has a fully accessible Tudor paneled minstrels’ gallery.

If you wish to have a blessing there is a quintessentially beautiful Chapel set within a walled rose garden, the origins of which date back to the 6th Century.  

For those wanting a traditional ceremony, there is a church near by which is within easy reach of the castle if you want a horse and carriage, or you can hire the two classic Rolls-Royces owned by the Castle. The banqueting room is usually the preferred choice for the wedding breakfast and seats up to 120 guests, whilst the Orangery Mews and bar are perfect for evening celebrations.  Alternatively there are several places suitable for a marquee of any size within the Castle’s gardens should you require more space.

All food is sourced locally through tried and tested suppliers and prepared by our in-house chef, Scott.  However, if you are opting for a totally self-arranged wedding, you are of course welcome to have use of our 5 star commercial kitchens and bring in your own caterers. 

The Castle is available for exclusive use and they have a full time wedding planner on site to help you as much or as little as you wish.


“…made us feel like royalty, what princess looks nervous when living their fairy tale.” Your goal is limitless to what extent you will go to make the weekend as special as you did… People spent the whole weekend asking if I was nervous but as you took care of everything and made us feel like royalty, what princess looks nervous when living there fairy tale. Although every wedding is special you can be made to feel like you’re on a conveyer belt but with you guys it was all about making us feel welcomed, relaxed and content from the second we arrived to the moment we left. The food was outstanding, the best food we’ve ever eaten at a wedding by far. The toast master helped everything to run smoothly, and where do I start on the fireworks. If I can give any advice to brides to be it’s that, Polly the florists who I referred to as my fairy godmother decorates the castle so beautifully. Please save your money on other decorations and have the fireworks because they really do set your wedding apart from the rest. Words cannot describe the spectacular display you guys preform. They were breathtaking and magical.

“Bickleigh Castle was the perfect setting for our Daughter’s Wedding. She looked like a Princess marrying her Prince in a Castle a fairytale come true.” Everything ran so smoothly and the time just flew by. The Great Hall made it a most romantic Ceremony and the blessing afterwards in the little Chapel was very special. I could write so much about the beautiful flowers, excellent food and good wine. It was a truly magical day from beginning to end not only for the Bride and Groom but for their family and friends. So glad we all stayed in the Castle’s courtyard cottages.

“We shall never forget the enchanting setting, beautiful weather and the perfect service..” What a wonderful wedding Natasha and Andy had at Bickleigh Castle in July this summer. We shall never forget the enchanting setting, beautiful weather and the perfect service that was provided by you and your staff. Nothing was too much trouble, so that each guest felt relaxed and really enjoyed the whole day.
