Situated in the South Hams countryside, this stunning 16th century English manor house overlooks the South Devon coast. With Jacobean gardens and lake-side gazebo, there are plenty of natural scenes to make up the backdrop of your wedding photography.

The location, just south of Plymouth and in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, will be the perfect setting for your wedding day. Civil ceremonies are held in the charming gazebo, boasting views over the vineyard and lakes; and in the intimate wedding room, equipped with candles and log fires.

History

The first mention of Langdon was in the Domesday Book, in which the house is granted to a Norman baron supporting William the Conqueror.

The house was then passed to the Courtenay family, who lived on the estate for nearly 200 years. They were a respected local family, and took care of Langdon until the last member, the Marquis of Exeter, was beheaded for treason against Henry VIII. This is assumed to be because of the Marquis' opposition of the English Catholic's break from Rome, instigated by the King to secure a divorce from his first wife, Katharine of Aaragon, and to marry Anne Boleyn.

Over the next 400 years the estate would see a number of owners, including Henry VII's widow Catharine Parr, the Calmady family and the Cory family. During Richard Cory's ownership, Langdon was visited by the Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VII, and the beautiful actress Lillie Langtry.

The house was bought and sold on numerous occasions following Richard Cory's death, and was even used as a children's convalescent home for a period after the Second World War.

Today Langdon Court is owned by Emma and Geoffrey Ede, who lovingly run the hotel and restaurant to provide a bespoke wedding venue along the south coast of Devon.
