History

Tracey Estate dates back to the 12th century where the first residence was built by Sir William de Tracy. Over the centuries the estate grew in size, but eventually its fortunes declined and it fell into disrepair. In 2003, the building which stood upon the grounds was demolished as it had by that time become alarmingly unstable and dangerous.

However, in 2011 a restoration project was undertaken with the aim of recovering and re-establishing the gardens and grounds, and after a considerable amount of hard work, they have now truly been returned to their former glory.

Facilities

Ceremony

For your ceremony, Tracey Estate can present you with a venue like no other. Stroll from the terrace vista down to the Sunken Garden, with your friends and family gathered round, as you recite your vows and exchange rings under the ornate hexagonal pavilion, with the unrivalled beauty of rural Devon stretching out into the distance beyond you.

Reception

For your reception, you'll be provided with a marquee situated in the heart of the grounds. With extras ranging from a dancefloor, stage, electrics, PA system, catering tent, and a variety of decorations to choose from, your event will be unique to you. You get full use of the garden grounds for three days to ensure an unhurried, stress-free set-up.

The wedding package allows for 120 guests. For an additional fee, this can be increased to 160 guests (no charge for additional evening guests).

Accommodation

Tracey Estate can provide camping accommodation on the grounds in the Yew Circle. Looking for a bit more luxury? Choose one of three glamping options in the form of vintage-looking bell-tents, ranging from 2-6 people in capacity.

On request, Tracey Estate can also provide a shortlist of preferred hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs in the local area.

Reviews

  • Kirsten and Dominic - July 2018

    What can I say, how to sum up our wedding weekend in a few words! It was just PERFECT! We can’t thank you enough for the hard work, patience and kindness you showed us throughout the whole process and over the weekend. You are all so lovely, approachable and nothing was too much trouble! Every single guest was amazed at the venue, how beautiful and well-kept it was. The ceremony was stunning and the grounds meant we hardly needed to do anything to bring out the estate’s beauty. We are still beaming from ear to ear! Howard and Ed were fantastic throughout the whole weekend and the run up to it, so please thank them for us. You are such a wonderful family and we will be eternally grateful to you for making our wedding one that we will remember forever.

  • Carla & Marcus - May 2017

    We would all like to express our thanks for making such a perfect day. Everybody was so impressed with the venue. We were so thankful for your help and support leading up to and on the day. Just the right amount, you always seemed to be there when needed.

  • Andy and Millie - August 2017

    Thank you so much for providing us with the perfect venue, and for all your efforts in making our day so special. We have had endless comments on how utterly beautiful the venue was.

    We couldn't have imagined a more perfect day for us. You really have made the organisation of our day so easy. We can’t thank you enough for all you did.

  • Hayley-Rose and Tom - June 2017

    We weren't restricted and could really make it ‘our wedding’ not just a wedding. As soon as we drove up to Tracey Estate and saw the amazing view, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. In addition to this, we loved the friendly welcome, the flexibility and the fact that we weren't restricted and could really make it ‘our wedding’ not just a wedding. After seeing the beautiful sunken garden, we really couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else.

    We loved the fact that it was family run and not corporate. The guys were all informal yet professional and did everything they could to make our day run smoothly and how we'd imagined. When we were let down by our caterers running the bar - they stepped straight in and did an amazing job. They really couldn't do enough to make our day perfect - magical and love-filled.
