Stunning Spring & Summer Weddings in north devon
Beaconside House is an exclusive use wedding venue set just outside Bideford in the beautiful North Devon countryside. The entire venue is just for you and your guests, giving you the privacy to enjoy our estate for the whole of your wedding weekend. Our manor house comfortably sleeps up to 20 and our 4 cottages make the total number of guests who can stay with you for your wedding to 50.
Our extensive estate allows you plenty of options for your wedding ceremony and reception. Our purpose-built reception venue can host up to 200 guests and we have indoor and outdoor spaces for the ceremony itself.
Licensed for Outdoor and almost outdoor Ceremonies....
We realise that you want your wedding your way and a huge part of that is the wedding ceremony. Beaconside has three locations for your ceremony to choose from, all offering something a little bit different, 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. The second of our outdoor spaces is Beaconside’s Victorian Walled Garden, a suntrap located alongside our gorgeous outdoor pool.
We can also create that outdoor feel in our Glass House, the closest you can get to being outdoors with the comfort of keeping your guests warm and dry.
After your vows
Beaconside’s extensive grounds and stunning scenery allow you to capture all the photos you want and relax at the same time. You’ll create timeless images and memories!
The wedding breakfast will be held in our purpose-built venue, the Beacon which seats up to 150 guests for your wedding breakfast. This stunning building was built specifically to cater for wedding receptions in some style. The room can be dressed however you want to match your colours and theme.
We're licensed until 1am for you to party the night away and our fully licensed, fully staffed copper bar is stocked with great local beers, a varied wine list and our South west gin selection.
The Beacon is illuminated at night with twinkling fairy lights. Choose the perfect band or DJ and invite up to 200 of your family and friends to party the night away.

what our brides have said
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 my 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.
