Guest Blog - The Good Hotel Guide

Few places are as picture perfect as Devon for a wedding.  From dramatic vistas on Dartmoor to sea views in Salcombe it’s got variety, beauty and excellent hospitality.  Here are 5 of the Good Hotel Guide’s top hotel wedding venues in Devon

Thurlestone Hotel, Kingsbridge

With views stretching out over the spectacular Thurlestone beach, Thurlestone Hotel sits in the South Hams, one of the most picturesque parts of Devon.  This is a place that’s all locally made ice cream and fresh seafood, while the hotel has a longstanding history of hospitality and a spa to relax in before the big day.  Weddings at the award-winning hotel cater for up to 150 people, surrounded by 19 acres of gardens and photo opportunities that are quite literally postcard perfect.

Hotel Riviera, Sidmouth

A place that’s all about attention to detail, Hotel Riviera is a fine Regency terrace overlooking Lyme Bay and featuring spotless, modern design. They can cater for weddings of up to 120 people as well as small, intimate affairs with a highly experienced team of planners on hand and the elegance of the English seaside ready and waiting for perfect photos of your day.

The Cary Arms, Babbacombe

In a wonderfully secluded cove surrounded by woodland and overlooking the beach, The Cary Arms takes you to another world where yachts sail by and children play with shrimping nets in the sand.  As a result, you can imagine that weddings here have that extra touch of seaside magic.  You can get married in either the Saloon or outdoors in their unique glass sphere pod and really take advantage of the setting, with space for anything from 22 to 80 guests.

Salcombe Harbour Hotel, Salcombe

With 50 bedrooms overlooking the estuary, Salcombe Harbour Hotel is part of the Harbour Hotels group and has contemporary design, excellent standards and an impeccable location to its name.  For weddings they offer complete packages from ceremonies to wedding breakfasts in a wedding suite for up to 80 guests.  Enjoy spa treatments before or after your big day, a luxury bedroom for the bride and groom and evening functions for up to 100 people.

Glazebrook House, Dartmoor

Surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens, with a sense of grandeur and artistic flair, Glazebrook House offers a decadent environment for up to 72 people in a secluded Dartmoor location.  The hotel has a creative vibe to it, with sumptuous handmade furnishings and beguiling vintage and retro curios that have been carefully selected, and carefully considered local cuisine is a real feast for the senses.
