This historic family-run hotel is located in a valley close to Dartmoor's wild tors. Built in the early 1600s, the Jacobean Manor was largely restored in the 19th and 20th centuries. It boasts impressive gardens, spilling out into the rolling South Devon countryside. Many of the private rooms of the old house now function as wedding facilities, which is reminiscent of the building's grand history.

In its idyllic rural setting, the hotel is tranquil and luxurious, with exquisite cuisine and charming bedrooms and suites provided for wedding-night accommodation. With five lovely reception rooms varying in size available for wedding ceremonies, and exclusive use of the entire house by arrangement on your big day, you can enjoy the ultimate in luxury at a Lewtrenchard Manor wedding.


Mentioned in the Domesday Book as Royal Manor, the property known as Lew House was renamed Lewtrenchard Manor when the Trenchards took it over in 1327. Living here for just a short period of time, they nevertheless bequeathed its surviving name.

Lewtrenchard Manor can narrate a convoluted, intricate history. It was owned by several families throughout the centuries, each of which has experienced a succession of individual tales and scandals connected with the property. The surviving building was largely reconstructed during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, although some parts of it date back as far as the early 1600s.

It remained a private home until 1949, when it became a hotel, as it is today, as well as being the residence of the Murray family.
