Ash Barton Estate. Braunton. North Devon

Wedding Reception Venue, Devon

Once the actual ceremony is over, the fun can really begin. Your wedding reception is your chance to catch up with your guests, have a glass or fizz or three and let your hair down. Metaphorically speaking.

And at Ash Barton, there are a number of different options when it comes to celebrating your wedding. No wonder we’re one of the most popular wedding reception venues in Devon.

What kind of wedding reception do you want?

Looking for a wedding reception venue that’s big enough to seat 200? Head over to our big party barn. There’s plenty of room for you and all your guests to have a sit down reception and our tables and chairs are free to use. Or you may prefer a marquee on the lawn with Ash Barton as a backdrop. Or perhaps you’re looking for an intimate wedding reception? There’s room in our pretty old chapel to seat 50. Or have 30 for a celebratory meal in our splendid dining room in the main house.

Food and drink at your wedding reception

When it comes to wedding receptions at Ash Barton, anything goes and that includes the food and drink. You may opt for a traditional sit down reception and a three course meal. Or you may want something altogether more informal. If you’re having a festival themed wedding a hog roast or BBQ are good fun. Or an open air wedding followed by a picnic on the lawn is a laid back option. You can drink what you like too. And as we’re a no corkage venue, you won’t get charged a penny every time someone pops another bottle of fizz.

Music and dancing at your wedding reception

After the food, continue the celebration with music and dancing. The big party barn does exactly what it says on the tin. Choose anything from a rock band to a 70s disco and boogie on down. Or get the DJ to drop some of your favourite old school dance tunes. Arms in the air. And because our nearest neighbour is over a mile away, we’re a no curfew venue. So if you want your wedding reception to go on all night long, that’s fine by us. 

Feel free to use your own suppliers for your wedding reception. Or take a look at our list of recommended suppliers below.

Having travelled from Essex, London, California, Chicago, New York, Bishops Stortford and Cardiff we did not expect such an amazing place. We celebrated (several) special birthdays and a wedding reception in this perfect setting. We had an amazing time in this wonderful place. We even managed to use all the rooms with our big family!
