A romantic, newly restored Georgian country house in the heart of South Hams, Devon. With fantastic opportunities for both civil ceremonies and receptions, Shilstone offers the perfect setting for a country wedding. Guests enter the house into the East Hall, a bright airy space with an open fireplace which provides a warm welcome. A stunning 85ft passage leads the eye through a series of arches down the length of the house to the West Hall. The Dining Room is at the centre of the South front of the house, overlooking the cascading pools and valley beyond. This large panelled room with full height windows and English oak floor has a fantastic open fireplace and, for those glorious summer days, doors leading out onto the Front Terrace.
The West Hall with its beautiful geometric off-white stone floor and open fire leads out into the West Garden; this semi-circular grassed sun-trap nestles over 3 levels between the main house and the Walled Garden, with a view of the west façade. Beyond this lies the Walled Garden, a fantastic space featuring a beautiful garden tower and stone fountain. The Walled Garden offers stunning views of Shilstone's tiered lakes and of the rolling hills beyond. Set in 500 acres of spectacular Devon countryside, just outside the beautiful Georgian town of Modbury, Shilstone captures the imagination as soon as you drive through the stone pillared gates. Rolling hills, woodlands, lakes and wildflower meadows surround the Shilstone estate and the sun-filled walled garden, complete with tower and stone fountain, looks out over tiered pools and valleys, making it the perfect location for our mughal tent.
There are numerous locations on offer for civil ceremonies and wedding receptions, within the beautifully restored country house and in the surrounding gardens and countryside. Whatever your ideas for your wedding day, we are confident that we can work with you to realise them.
