Woodland Weddings East Devon

Nestling above the picturesque village of Farway, we offer a truly wonderful place for couples to celebrate their big day. Deriving from Old English words meaning “the land above the village” Bovehay Down sits in the heart of East Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The views from our woodland offer a beautiful setting for wedding ceremonies and our rustic barn is perfect for dining and dancing afterwards. To enquire about our woodland weddings in East Devon, discuss your plans and book a visit, please contact us.

Bovehay Down is licensed for civil ceremonies or it is possible to have a symbolic ceremony as preferred. We will happily recommend celebrants to lead your wedding or guide you through the legal procedure. Of course, if you would prefer a religious ceremony, Farway Parish Church is 10-minutes away.

We will be honoured to help create your special day, you can take a look at the setting for ceremonies here or find out more about our lovely indoor barn here.
