Welcome to Clifford Barton Weddings

– for a unique, rustic, beautiful barn wedding

Deep in wild romantic Dartmoor countryside, surrounded by woodland and rolling farmland in the stunning Teign valley, Clifford Barton is a unique rural wedding venue set in an idyllic 50 acre nature reserve. We are nestled around a Medieval farmstead combining old world charm with contemporary style and comfort and built on strong environmental values.

Licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies, we strive to create a relaxed, bespoke and highly personal experience. You have exclusive use of the venue and we only host a handful of weddings each year so that we can make each one exceptional.

We offer a choice of wonderfully romantic licensed spots to tie the knot including, for nature lovers, overlooking the beautiful Bridesmere lake. You and your guests can enjoy the lake, woodland and meadow trails around the nature reserve with abundant outside space for games or just quiet enjoyment on long summer evenings.

  • Unique weddings for 2 to 100 people
  • A truly environmentally friendly wedding venue in a 50 acre nature reserve
  • Friends and family stay on site to extend the celebrations

To Tie the Knot choose from:

  • Bridesmere Bridge, overlooking the Stunning Bridesmere lake
  • The Willow Arbour, next to Bridesmere lake (from 2021)
  • Swallow Barn, an ancient and beautiful, but highly versatile, stone barn
  • Accommodation on site for 20, in 3 cottages
  • Private, off grid love nest for the newlyweds
  • Bell Tents
  • Camping

You have the freedom to create the wedding of your dreams, with your choice of suppliers, and total flexibility in how you use the venue, but with the reassurance of knowing there is support and advice available if needed.

Enjoy stylish, luxury on-site accommodation for up to 22 close family and friends, to extend the celebrations and make things easy for your loved ones. Additional on-site accommodation is offered in bell tents and a neighbouring campsite.

After the excitement of the day retire to a secluded off grid love nest to spend your wedding night in fabulous comfort under the stars.

We pride ourselves on our versatility and can offer intimate weddings, from elopements for 2, right up to 100 seated guests for a full wedding banquet, whatever you want for your special day.

We offer flexibility to enable couples to create the bespoke wedding of their dreams, so have set out a range of pricing options. But please get in touch if you’d like something a bit different.

Planning a wedding can be a daunting prospect. We work with wedding planners who know the venue and, for those who want it, can help to organise and advise from start to finish, or just be there on the day to co-ordinate activities, to take the stress away and ensure everything goes to plan so you are able to concentrate on enjoying your big day.
