Pynes House is the perfect location for an exclusive, country house wedding. Set it in its own 37 acre park in the gorgeous Exe Valley, but only three miles from all the convenience of Exeter. Believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, Pynes House is now inspiring couples for their perfect wedding day.
With a number of magnificent State rooms and capacity to seat 90 in the elegant Ballroom for a sit down meal or many more for a marquee wedding in the beautiful grounds, Pynes House makes the ideal year-round private retreat. During the summer, make the most of our manicured lawns, ornamental terraces and pretty woodland, and in the winter enjoy the cosy romance of our beautiful interiors, stunning views and open log fires.
Luxurious accommodation is available in 12 individually styled bedroom suites so couples and their guests can make it a wedding weekend, rather than just one day.

    We had our wedding here last week and it was a truly stunning venue. A big selling point for us were the extensive grounds, but the inside was spacious and comfortably elegant so we had the best of both worlds. We had a more unusual wedding, and Pynes House were fantastic in being flexible and taking it all in their stride. We had specific caterers we wanted as all the food was vegan, and unlike other venues we didn't have to use in-house caterers. We were free to use our own photographers, bakers etc too. We had a pirate-themed wedding and wanted lots of outdoor activities including a treasure hunt, and Pynes House were kind enough to allow us to visit a few times in the run-up to the wedding and wander around the grounds, deciding where to put clues. They also allowed dogs on the grounds which really helped some guests. The accommodation was amazingly luxurious, and it was a real treat staying the nights before and after the wedding. Because we were doing a lot ourselves it was great to set everything up on the previous day so that on the day of the wedding there wasn't much we had to do. Whenever we sent an email Heather or Kate would answer as helpfully as possible, and didn't seem to mind how many questions we asked! They were kind enough to give us the use of a microwave for a guest to heat up baby formula. The venue coordinator, Jo, was fantastic and made everything on the day run so smoothly! Together with the caterers anything that needed doing was done without us even needing to be aware of it, from setting out chairs for the ceremony to clearing away tables after the meal and carefully placing all the table decorations on the mantelpiece to make a display. We really can't thank you enough for making our day so wonderful.
