Stunning Spring & Summer Weddings in north devon
Beaconside is a unique and exclusive wedding venue set just outside Bideford in the beautiful North Devon countryside. Our weddings give you the entire venue for three nights allowing you and your guests to relax and extend the celebrations!
We've got enough accommodation for up to 75 of your guests set between the original Beaconside House, our four cottages and nine woodland cabins.
a choice of ceremony locations
We realise that you want your wedding your way and a huge part of that is the wedding ceremony. Beaconside has both indoor and outdoor locations for you to choose from, allowing you to create the perfect I do moment.
For those wanting to get married with rolling hills as the backdrop there’s the Sundial. Your ceremony will be underneath our arched canopy whilst your guests are seated on the lawn with a stunning panorama behind you.
For those who prefer an indoor option our Glass House, decorated with candelabras, a draped arch and white aisle carpet is the perfect place to make the most of the countryside views from the warmth of indoors!
After the I Do
The grounds around Beaconside are the perfect backdrop for an afternoon drinks and canapés reception as well as giving you a choice of picturesque photograph backdrops.
Sit down and feed your guests in our purpose built glass and oak wedding barn 'The Beacon' and throw open the bifold doors to merge the inside and outside space. It's already decorated with fairy light wrapped beams and beautiful statement chandeliers but we love to see our couples adding their own decorations and ideas to make the space uniquely theirs.
Keep the party going until late! our fully licensed, fully staffed copper bar is open from one hour before your ceremony until 1am and stocked with great local beers, a varied wine list and our South West gin selection.
Work with our planners to find the perfect band or DJ and invite up to 200 of your family and friends to celebrate in style!

what our brides have said
Wow, what can we say about Beaconside House, I’d start with absolutely incredible, we have just arrived home from our weekend stay for our wedding, it was everything that we wished for and more. We fell in love with it on our first viewing, we knew we wanted a wedding that we could stay with our families all weekend, it ticked the boxes and the fact it was absolutely beautiful was a bonus. The staff, service, and food from the amazing Kris and team was faultless. Each and everyone of our guests have complimented the same. Daisy was amazing throughout, she was warm friendly, inviting and went out of her way to help us along the way, when we had to move the date many times due to illness and the pandemic she would put us at ease and help us find our way back to what we wanted, to be married, she always helped us reignite our excitement when we were disappointed. We are over the moon we are finally married, at what’s become our happy place, Beaconside will forever be in our hearts. Thank you to you all, we will be forever grateful, lots of love Carly and Dave xxx
Perfection in every way!
Beaconside, from the moment I booked our wedding until the last drink was poured it was perfection in every way. I cannot recommend a beaconside wedding enough! When your planning your special day you have an image in your head of how the day will go and how everything will look and I can honestly say that my wedding at Beaconside exceeded my already very high expectations. The Beaconside team were so amazing and nothing was too much to ask . Everyone had the best day and it will be a day that I treasure for the rest of my life . The accommodation was just perfect and meant that the party could start on the Friday before our wedding and carry on until Sunday, family and friends were all together having so much fun Thankyou Beaconside for making our dream wedding come true x
Amazing from Start to Finish!
Where to start!!!! Just to let you know that Alana and Matt's wedding weekend was ABSOLUTELY SUPERB. It was all amazing from start to finish. This is a fabulous venue. Stunning views and beautiful Wedding room and Glass house. We knew it would be fantastic but it exceeded our expectations. My husband and I did not get to meet Daisy the Wedding Planner but Alana and Matt said she was wonderful. I have had so many of our family and friend saying this was one of the best weddings ever. It was so lovely to have from the Friday to Monday. We were lucky with the weather so Sunday was great and the kids loved the pool. I will definitely be recommending Beaconside and it was well worth the journey. Thanks to all who was involved behind the scenes in making my daughter and son in law's wedding SO PERFECT.
Beaconside Feels like home to us!
We want to extend a huge thank you to Daisy, Mark, Ali, Vicky and the rest of the team at Beaconside. You helped us organise the wedding of our dreams and the whole day ran so smoothly; it was truly perfect.
It's a very special place that creates beautiful memories...
We got married at Beaconside House and it was without doubt the most beautiful, serene, relaxed and friendly environment you could wish for. The staff are angels (including Fred) and the venue exceeds anything I have ever experienced. I cannot thank any of the team more or recommend Beaconside enough. I am totally in love with Beaconside now, it's a very special place that creates beautiful memories so easily.
