With woodland glades, wildflower meadows and unique outdoor ceremony spaces - this is a really, rather special venue for your wedding. If you are looking for a 'cookie cutter' venue - then look away now! Higher Holcombe is the opposite of what you might expect. Almost accidentally, and because we love all the possibilities that our little patch of Devon offers - our ongoing re-wilding of an old dairy farm means that it's evolving and becoming a rather lovely place to host your special occasion.
The Re-wilding of Higher Holcombe
The idea to create a unique countryside wedding venue came after planting thousands of trees on nearly half the 30 acres. As the saplings grew, we began sowing wildflower flurries in the meadows and made surprising spaces for different parts of your day.
We've planted a hill-top willow 'cathedral' and, hidden in a wooded glade is a secluded silver birch 'church' (which, we have to admit, is the result of a rather wonderful planting accident). It too can be used for an especially memorable outdoor ceremony. We hope you fancy walking up a woodland aisle!
There was a rather ugly old milking parlour which has been beautifully clad with larch - and we believe we can now add 'elegant' to the rustic vibe! We provide hand made chunky trestle tables for your feasts and there are views of the meadow and the fire pit, where you can take the weight off your dancing feet - and stare into the night skies!
We want you to make the most of the fact that you will be surrounded by all your family and friends. If you go for a single day (which will just fly by), you may miss out on the chance to really connect with all your special people.
Make it a Wedding Weekend
With accommodation sorted (glamping for 22 in Lotus Belle tents and space for 10 more in the modern farmhouse), we hope you will be tempted to extend the party and make your wedding a sort of mini-break for everyone who has travelled.
Don't worry! We haven't forgotten the newly-weds! Romantic seclusion is guaranteed for you both in our unique, wooden-clad 'Hobbit House'. With quirky curved walls, woodland views and private facilities - you may be tempted to just cosy up and not go out to make the most of being in the lush Devon countryside!
Make the most of being in this fab part of the world! Not far are the spectacular Jurassic Coast beaches, gentle meandering river walks and there are even views of Dartmoor with its craggy tors (but a bit of a drive away)!
We want your wedding to reflect you both; your personalities, your passions, your priorities. We want your wedding to be all about you. We want you to have a wedding that everyone will love. A wedding where love is celebrated and special memories are made.
There is one main proviso. . .
Have maximum fun.
Oh, and another one. . .
With minimum waste.
Now - that's boho!
Just wanted to say an enormous thank you again for everything you did to make our day so perfect. I'm sure every couple says this, but it really was the best day ever and we are so grateful for everything you did to make it happen!
