Our space is a 96-acre wedding venue in a hidden valley, a peaceful haven on the edge of the bustling city of Exeter. Operated as a community farm and home to the Biophilia Project and Off Grid Festival, we seek to offer an oasis for social and ecological change, providing access to land for those in need and nurturing mind, body and soul.
With nearly a hundred acres of meadows and woodland to enjoy, yet easily accessible from Exeter and major transport routes, the space is the perfect location for those seeking to get married in a unique, natural and eco-friendly way, surrounded by the beautiful outdoors.
The centrepiece of the venue is a striking 2-storey timber frame barn that provides a fantastic space for wedding receptions and meals, with a fitted stage available for music and dancing into the evening. Upstairs is a chill-out lounge replete with cushions, low tables, atmospheric lighting and rugs. We provide rustic tables and seating, wedding decor, plus a PA system for wedding bands and DJs to use. Compost Toilets are provided onsite along with a disabled loo and wood-fuelled showers in a kitted out shepherds wagon.
There is a special area in the woodland, alongside the babbling Pin Brook and a specially created amphitheatre available for ceremonial use. The whole venue is very child-friendly and activities can be laid on – from big games to bushcraft to archery – for all ages through our partnership with Sylvan Adventures who also run Forest Schools here at the farm.
Catering onsite is provided by our partners, Art of Food. Art of Food can provide anything from a wood-fired hog roast through to a vegetarian banquet. Flexibility is their art-form and whatever your wish, Art of Food will do their best to cater for it, using local and organic ingredients wherever possible and working with the best local suppliers and specialists we know.
