The Best Wedding Venue for All Seasons

We know the traditional wedding season is in the Spring and Summer and the Winter months are often overlooked. But why limit yourself? Beaconside is the best venue for your wedding weekend in North Devon all year round.

Beaconside has two amazing internal spaces which are licensed for civil ceremonies. The Beacon and the Glass House. The Beacon holding up to 200 is a purpose built glass and oak-framed wedding barn which can be used for the ceremony, the wedding reception and for partying late into the evening. It's then available for indoor fun on the Sunday. Our Glass House leads off the Beacon and provides you the opportunity to be surrounded by stunning scenery whilst keeping warm and dry.

At Beaconside we specialise in weekend weddings. The entire venue is exclusively yours for the whole weekend. Our large house, cottages and luxury glamping cabins sleep up to 75 of your guests. Once you book they are all exclusively reserved in your name for your freinds and family to book direct with us.
A pricing example is at the bottom of this page.

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.

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.

Absolutely incredible!

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 my dream wedding come true x
