Deer's Leap Retreat, Devon, Exmoor

Sleeps 2 - 31 15 Bedrooms 100 Dining 150 Venue Capacity

Exclusive hire wedding venue on the edge of Exmoor for 150 guests for bespoke ceremonies and receptions with accommodation

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Deer's Leap Retreat, Devon, Exmoor, sleeps 2 - 31 in 15 bedrooms.

Nestled on the edge of Exmoor National Park, Deer’s Leap is perfect for couples who want to create their own, personal and intimate wedding.

Creating a relaxed, happy atmosphere and unique style of celebration is at the heart of everything we do. We are an inclusive, beautiful venue full of warmth and love. Be it a lakeside ceremony, festival or country escape, the time you spend celebrating with us will feel like a holiday.

With each wedding we exclusively offer our beautiful farmhouse, private hot tubs and sauna, accommodation for 19, a bridal cottage and, during the spring and summer, 5 luxury bell tents sleeping up to an additional 20 people.

We also offer lots of advice and support to help you plan your theme; and we’re here to help you every step of the way. From offering the flexibility to have your own caterers, or to self-cater, to helping plan details and family arrangements.

We offer various settings for your wedding; in our handcrafted lakeside gazebo, dappled with sunlight, filtering through the trees, or at sunset bathed in the golden light. Or inside our beautiful old stone barn which offers a rustic feel.

Be creative and keep it authentic to you, host a wedding breakfast in the stone barn, hold the nuptials by the lake, and then celebrate with a full reception dinner in the barn or a hog roast on the patio, followed by cocktails and star gazing. Or hold your wedding reception inside a traditional Tipi or Bedouin Tent, with string lights creating a magical atmosphere.
We can help you organise anything and everything, and you can truly have complete control over creating the wedding you want. At Deer’s Leap, you will always find yourself enveloped in nature’s relaxed ambience and our team’s warmth and care.
