A real country wedding venue within the Dartmoor National Park based just a mile and a half from Chagford.
Monks Withecombe is the perfect country wedding venue. Located in the Dartmoor National Park, Monks is just over a mile from Chagford, and a couple of miles from the A30. With plenty of free off road parking, Monks Withecombe welcomes you into its flower filled courtyards, beautiful gardens, and wild flower meadows.
Whether you are planning an intimate ceremony with close friends, or a romantic epic on a grand scale, Nicky and Simon Heyworth are here to help you plan and organise your wedding day. Both the Corn Barn and The Gallery are licenced for civil ceremonies, with The Gallery holding up to 100 people. The larger Corn Barn is perfect for a wedding breakfast, Ceilidh, Barn Dance or disco. There are spectacular views from both the Corn Barn and The Gallery, and the marquee meadow offers a wonderful open aspect to the west and free off-road parking in the adjacent field. What could be more romantic than to watch the sunset over Dartmoor, gathered around the warmth of the fire pit, with friends and family? Hay bales, banners, bunting and fairy lights? Simon and Nicky can recommend excellent local contacts and suppliers and take in deliveries during the week of your wedding.
Monks Withecombe is a wedding photographer's dream location. The Spring Garden, Orchard, Main Lawns, courtyards and meadows are all yours to wander and enjoy. With plenty of space for cricket and croquet, and magical gardens to explore, Monks Withecombe really is a wonderful place for a wedding.
Family and friends will be coming from all over the world to be with you on your wedding day, and Monks will welcome them all. From the Tuesday before your Saturday wedding, all of us at Monks will be here to help you, to take in deliveries, deal with suppliers, and provide calming cups of tea. Would you like the groomsmen to help decorate the marquee? Would your bridesmaids like to do the flowers? Would you like to host a brunch in the marquee the day after your wedding? Play cricket, fly kites, chat and relax in a beautiful meadow? We are happy for you to take the time to make your wedding day unique and personal, filled with memories of fun and friendship. The gardens are wonderful from spring right through to the autumn - filled with colour and scent and rich with butterflies and bees. The Corn Barn is a spectacular space - perfect for a civil ceremony, or wedding breakfast, or barn dance. The Gallery is perfect for smaller weddings, while the meadows offer plenty of space for marquees (up to 400) and parking.
