Highbullen Hotel is an extra special Devon wedding venue. Set in 125 acres of mature parkland, nestled above the Mole and Taw valleys, the stunning views provide a breathtakingly romantic location for your wedding, whatever the season.

In the summer the terrace or croquet lawn next to the Manor House are perfect ceremonies and receptions. In autumn the valleys are transformed into a spectacle of colour before the beautifully crisp, clear winter days arrive with spectacular views across Exmoor. As the spring sets in the wonderful scent of spring is in the air bringing with it the bright, fresh greens of new leaves.

We can offer bespoke weddings, from a small private reception to a beautiful marquee with dancing under the stars, making sure that everything is perfect on your big day, right down to the smallest detail. Our Wedding Co-Ordinator will help you plan and will be on hand at all times to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.
