Deer’s Leap Retreat Wedding Venue

Nestled on the edge of Exmoor National Park, Deer’s Leap is perfect for couples who want to create their own, very personal wedding ceremony and reception.

The days of the happy couple only achieving a quick formal ‘hello & goodbye’ to their guests are fast dwindling and a more personal type of wedding tradition is happily emerging. This is at the heart of everything we do at Deer’s Leap Retreat. We are an inclusive, relaxed and beautiful venue, full of warmth and love. Be it an elopement, big family get together with everyone involved, small gathering, unique theme, lakeside ceremony, festival, or relaxing country escape. The time you spend celebrating at Deer’s Leap will feel like a wedding holiday.

Think of a DIY wedding, but without the stress of hiring and organising the basics. All packages include refrigeration to chill your wines & champagne, a kitchen area adjacent to the stone barn to store your accessories and any food or drink you choose to supply, fairy lights, festoon lights, oil lanterns, patio heaters, fire pits, outdoor sofa & tables & chairs, wine and champagne glasses, outdoor games, surround sound system, mics and amp, platters, wooden & slate & various Kilner jars, a Tea station replenished throughout the wedding day and night and parking for all your guests.

Our venue also has no curfew so that you can dance and celebrate till sunrise.

For weekend weddings, couples can check-in to the Bridal suite on Thursday afternoon. Hartford Cottage (Bridal Suite), is equipped with a private hot tub and patio, allowing for a relaxing start to their special weekend. Guests can check-in to our beautiful farmhouse, with private hot tubs and sauna, on Friday. The farmhouse provides accommodation for 19 in 9 bedrooms or 21 if using the sofa bed in the snug. With this extra time, couples can relax and enjoy the whole experience. No quick pack up and departure, you are your guests can enjoy the weekend at your leisure before departing on Monday. In addition, a couple of z-beds and cots are available if needed. Between the main Farmhouse and our Bridal suite, Hartford Cottage, we can accommodate 21 guests in 10 bedrooms (including the wedding couple) at the venue. Your wedding guests can also hire our Glamping tents, providing luxury camping facilities for 10-20 guests at Deer’s Leap from May to October. Each Bell tent has a king-size bed and private facilities, including shower, toilet, camping kitchen with gas hob and grill, camping fridge, cutlery, crockery, glasses, tea towel and bin.
