The building continues to evolve today and you can keep up to date with the latest goings on by visiting our blog.

We hope to share this little piece of history with you and would be delighted to welcome you to Pynes House.

We got married at Pynes on 8th December 2018. It was an amazing day, we can't thank Heather, Jo and the team enough for being such great hosts. The venue was very festive with the log fires and Christmas tree. Our guests thought it was a beautiful venue and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

I was so nervous prior to my first visit to Pynes House; we had read so many fabulous reviews about this impressive venue, most of which detail love at first sight and I am so pleased to say, Pynes House did not disappoint. After so many unsuccessful venue searches and visits, from the minute the car started to roll down the long and inviting driveway, we were in awe. The house is set within the most beautiful surroundings and is visually breathtaking. Each luxurious room is decorated to perfection and what every bride dreams of for their wedding night. Heather and Kate are so lovely and such a pleasure to work with. From the moment we first spoke, they were helpful, friendly and supportive and we couldn't have asked for more.

What a magnificent venue Pynes House is, the images do not do it justice. What you don’t see from the images is how warm, helpful and kind everyone is who is associated with Pynes House. We got married here in August 2019 and Kate, Heather, Geoff and Jon were fantastic. Jo who is the resident wedding coordinator was phenomenal, if we ever had another event like this she would be first on our list as a guest! We cannot recommend this place enough.

What an excellent wedding venue! They were so helpful with everything from planning to making sure everything ran perfectly on the day. Many of the guests commented on how spectacular the venue is, and we couldn't agree more. It was like a fairy tale to be able to stay and get married in such a magnificent place, and to have all of our friends and family around us too.

WOW! Pynes house is the most beautiful wedding venue in Devon - hands down. Having searched far and wide in Devon to find the ideal wedding venue for our day, and seeing Pynes first we never should have looked any further. Stop your search! It blows you away. The drive up to the house, the entrance and the welcome and then the rooms inside are all equally stunning. The rose garden is charming and perfect for canapés and drinks. The location makes you feel like you are miles away in the countryside and yet you are still so close to the city of Exeter and the transport links and local hotels. Ideal.

Pynes House was the most beautiful and breathtaking venue for our wedding in July 2019! From the sweeping staircase to the gorgeous gardens to the incredible interior - Pynes House was the wedding venue of our dreams. It is hard to put into words just how beautiful the venue is but it is truly breathtaking. Heather, Kate, Geoff and Jon were absolutely incredible and helped us at every step answering any questions we had. They provided brilliant recommendations for suppliers too! Another fantastic thing about Pynes House is Jo who is their wedding coordinator! Jo helped calm my husband-to-be’s nerves and ensured that the day was completely seamless. Pynes House was the perfect setting for our wedding and made the day so incredibly special and memorable.

Pynes House is just incredible. Heather and the family were so welcoming and really made us feel at home for the weekend. They were so flexible and always came back to us promptly even though they are so busy. All our guests were SO impressed at how stunning it is, as were we! It was further away than we had originally wanted our wedding but once we saw it, there was nowhere else we needed to see. The rooms are all immaculate and everywhere is so bright and airy. A truly magical place, full of love and happiness.

It is THE PERFECT venue. Absolutely beautiful and charming. We reviewed 35 venues and ended up picking Pynes because of the rooms (we did not want something that felt like a hotel for the guests) and the history of the estate. The venue is romantic and has a relaxed feel about the entire day. The gardens were beautiful - even one of our guests Monty Don said so! My family enjoyed the stay and all felt like they were Kings and Queens staying in Pynes. Heather, Geoff and Jo were such a pleasure to work with - such lovely hosts and people.

We had the most amazing wedding at Pynes House, Kate and the whole team were incredible. Jo our planner on site was second to none. The whole experience from the moment we booked up until the wedding day itself was seamless and I would highly recommend them. The whole venue is so beautiful it was literally like living in a dream for the day!

I knew Pynes House was the perfect wedding venue before even seeing it in the flesh.  Having scoured the photographs online and reading its history, with visitors both royal and literary, I was already enchanted. To appreciate the true character of the house and its gardens, you just have to visit yourself, or perhaps, if you’re as lucky as we were, get married there!

The epitome of elegance and romanticism, Pynes House is always an absolute treat to work at and a genuine honour to recommend to my clients.  The house itself offers so many possibilities and with the addition of onsite accommodation it really does tick ALL the boxes.  On top of that, you’ll also find an in-house team (and catering partner) that are passionate, accommodating, flexible, friendly and above all, a team that truly cares.
