The history of Huntsham Court is of particular interest to anyone thinking of booking the venue for their wedding, as it was quite literally built for a bride. It was 1760 when the Huntsham Estate was bought by William Troyte, after getting married to Lady Cecily Acland. In more recent years, the house has played host to all manner of famous guests with author Douglas Adams, of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fame, writing his book So Long and Thanks for all the Fish at Huntsham. It was also the location for Liam Gallagher’s band Beady Eye’s Shine a Light video.

Currently, the house is most often used as an exclusive Devon wedding venue, and also to host private house parties for 2 or more nights. Huntsham offers 7 hours free planning with an experienced event planner to help party organisers plan their country house party. They will help plan the perfect event, whatever the size, taking into account your personal catering needs, style, and budget. It is possible to rent Huntsham as a luxury staffed hotel that fully caters for party guests, or to rent it as a dry hire, with no staff, services or food/drinks included. Guests are welcome to supply their own drinks with no corkage fees charged.

As a wedding venue, Huntsham can host events for up to 130 guests in stunning Baronial style.
