This majestic Dartmoor manor estate is ideal for romantic wedding ceremonies and receptions. The unique principal building with its courtyard stables and belltower is Grade II*-listed, and has been in use as a residential farmhouse since 1785. Nowadays, Tor Royal is recognised as one of the most quaint wedding venues in rural Devonshire, enjoying its reputation for elegant hospitality.

The house can adapt to wedding parties of almost any size; smaller numbers can enjoy a more intimate celebration in one of the function rooms, whereas larger gatherings can easily be accommodated in a marquee in the grounds. The team can recommend reliable local suppliers; if you require fresh flowers or a nearby catering company, Tor Royal may just be perfect for the occasion!


The farmhouse was begun in 1785, when Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt decided to established his home on Dartmoor. He used the many surrounding properties, such as the Plume of Feathers Inn, to accommodate numerous agricultural workers, grooms and miners.

The son of an Essex country vicar and secretary to the Prince of Wales, later George IV, Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt also built Dartmoor Prison and Princetown Tramway. When completed, Tor Royal Farm boasted a walled courtyard and a fine Bell Tower, seen today.
