This Grade II-listed Georgian mansion spills out onto 20 acres of garden, woodland and riverside, gazing onto the Dartmoor National Park. The DIY wedding venue is rentable for an entire weekend with up to 80 guests - more permitted on the big day.

With inside and outside areas licensed for your civil ceremony, you can elect to marry in the elegant Georgian living room or under their famous cork tree. As you have exclusive use of the park's entire grounds, you are welcome to have your reception in the house itself or in a marquee in the glorious grounds. You are also at liberty to bring in an external caterer of your choice.


The oldest part of the house dates back to 1540, and by 1825 the estate commanded 470 acres. William Adair commissioned its reconstruction in 1825, thus creating its landscaped gardens which consist of beautiful ponds and waterfalls. The cellars of Colehayes Park served as a nuclear bunker shelter for a period after WWII: by the later 1940s, it was listed as a private house.


Main Hall

The exquisite Main Hall of the Grade II-listed Georgian house is an ideal backdrop for a big and beautiful wedding ceremony.

Living Room

Suited to a smaller gathering of family and friends, the Living Room can accommodate more intimate wedding ceremonies.

Porch Area

This outside area beneath the manor house's Regency Porch is absolutely perfect for elegant outdoor wedding celebrations.

Cork Tree Pavilion

Marry underneath the branches of the famous cork tree with a gorgeous ceremony at the bottom of Colehayes Park's garden.

A marquee can be independently hired by the bride and groom and erected in the grounds at no extra charge from the venue.

The Colehayes Park Wedding-Day Capacity Is 150 Guests

Catering And Accommodation

Whilst the team at Colehayes Park are eager to recommend caterers and other suppliers, you are completely free to bring in whichever companies you wish. Whether you dream of the traditional wedding breakfast, buffet, hog-roast, Asian cuisine or an informal picnic, there are a wealth of specialist culinary experts in the area who will be able to meet your needs. You are also free to use the barbecue equipment in the grounds.

There is no corkage charge, so you are welcome to use your own drinks supplier or simply bring your own wines, beers etc for the wedding day and your weekend stay at Colehayes Park.


With exclusive use of the venue over a long weekend, up to 70 people can be accommodated in the Georgian mansion. There is room for ten more in Cork Tree Cottage, which is a charming stone bungalow situated just 50 yards behind the main house.

All rooms in the mansion and cottage are self-catering and fully furnished with all the appliances required for a weekend away.
