Located within the 90-acre River Dart Country Park, Holne Park House is a shining beacon of elegance in the rugged Dartmoor landscape. Offering a romantic experience, safely sequestered away from the incessant hustle and bustle of modern-day life, the imposing late 19th-century house regularly hosts wedding ceremonies and receptions for a variety of brides and grooms.

Seating up to 90 guests for a formal reception in the Ballroom, with various spaces for civil ceremonies including the beautiful outdoor Garden Pavilion, there's plenty on offer at this Devon country escape. Showcasing its own superb in-house catering team, with the capacity to accommodate well over 150 people in various bedrooms, this is an ideal all-inclusive events venue.


Constructed between 1885-1906 and originally intended to be their private family residence, Holne Park was occupied by the Dawson family until the mid-1930s. In later years, no longer a family home, the building was used for a variety of purposes, from RAF Headquarters during WWII to a hotel, then a period as an outward bound/training centre, and now again as a hotel.



Traditionally the room for entertaining larger gatherings, this space is perfect for wedding breakfasts with up to 90 guests.


This can be used as an ideal chill-out area or drinks reception room, with its cosy atmosphere and unusual glass lantern roof.
