River Cottage HQ, Trinity Hill Road, Musbury, Axminster, Devon EX13 8TB

Celebrate your special day at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s iconic River Cottage in Devon. The venue is set within 65 aces of organic farmland, located just a short distance from the stunning Jurassic Coast. River Cottage is a unique wedding venue with a strong emphasis placed on the food served throughout the day.

Couples are invited down to the farm to design their menu in collaboration with the fantastic River Cottage chefs. The focus is most definitely on the food and all of the dishes created here use the finest home grown, local, organic and seasonal ingredients, guaranteed to impress your guests.

The venue is fully-licensed to conduct civil ceremonies and partnerships, so couples can say their vows in Hugh’s famous farmhouse, the beautifully refurbished barn with breath-taking views across the Axe Valley or in the walled garden depending on the season and the weather.

The Threshing Barn is the perfect rustic venue all year round and can accommodate up to 100 seated guests for your ceremony and 70 for dining, the adjoining marquee covered decking area can seat an additional 30 for dining in the warmer months. In the evening we clear the tables to make room for 120 to dance into the night.

Couples receive a dedicated wedding coordinator who is on hand to plan your perfect celebration and ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.

Gather your closest family and friends for an intimate lunch or dinner in the beautifully restored farmhouse the day before your wedding as we also offer pre-wedding dining experiences. Plus the Bride and Groom receive a complimentary bottle of our own Elderflower bubbly to take away and enjoy!
