Your wishes could all come true in The Elmfield, a gorgeous late Victorian villa located in the Torrs Park area of the town. You can use this lavish house as a blank canvas, absolutely perfect for you to decorate on a bespoke, completely personal basis.

Enjoy uninterrupted exclusivity at this large house, which is licensed for ceremonies and invites wedding couples to bring in their own caterers and use the nine beautifully-decorated bedrooms as accommodation for family and close friends over an extended weekend if required. From the nearby shores, you can enjoy views of Lundy Island and, on a clear day, all the way over to Wales!


The house at The Elmfield has been standing since Victorian times, when it was the residence of a prosperous water merchant. Still privately owned, it is now hired out as a holiday home and events venue. Sleeping up to 20, equipped with a heated indoor swimming pool, it makes the perfect base for couples wishing to explore this beautiful part of the North Devon coast and Exmoor.


The entire house is licensed to host civil marriage and partnership ceremonies, so you are free to invite the registrars to conduct your wedding formalities in any room you please! There will be an additional charge of £500 for hosting your wedding ceremony.

Likewise, wedding breakfasts, reception parties and other festivities can be organised precisely where you deem fit - over a long weekend, you and your guests will have the liberty to celebrate your big event exactly how and where you please at The Elmfield.

External caterers can readily be sourced, meaning that you are welcome to enjoy the extensive variety of fresh local produce and types of cuisine that this region has to offer. The Elmfield team will be happy to recommend reliable suppliers of all descriptions.


With nine bedrooms sleeping up to 20 people, The Elmfield can happily accommodate your wedding party. You are encouraged to enjoy a longer stay, where you can utilise the pool and other facilities. Your wedding day can turn into your wedding weekend!
