About

An exquisite Grade I listed, Regency country house wedding venue set in over 100 acres of glorious Devon parkland, just seven miles from the centre of Exeter. Rockbeare Manor has been given a new lease of life, having recently been sensitively transformed into a wonderful contemporary venue.

A pair of elegant white pillars marks the entrance to one of the South West’s newest, and very special, exclusive use country wedding venues. Anticipation will grow as you catch the odd glimpse of the house from the meandering driveway, passing through patches of dappled sunlight before arriving at the magnificent Regency Manor near Exeter.

The stately Dining Room or pretty outdoor Terrace are the perfect backdrops for a Civil Ceremony and you can then enjoy reception drinks and some delicious canapés, before being invited into our spacious Ballroom, which seats 50 - 160 guests, for a lavish wedding breakfast. The giant contemporary chandeliers, high ceiling and full-length windows overlooking acres of parkland give the room an expansive, airy feel, making it the ideal place for the festivities to continue.

The sweeping staircase leads to an opulent bridal Drawing Room with floor-to-ceiling windows and grand balcony, and for the groom and his groomsmen we have the Billiard Room.

We would just like to say a huge thank you to you and all the team at Rockbeare Manor. From start to finish you and the Rockbeare team have been nothing but amazing. We really had the most fantastic day on Saturday and that’s thank you to your team

The chef - both Rhys & I plus family and all our guests were simply blown away by the food. Michelin stars and beyond you just nailed it. Can’t believe how good the steak was. Our guests have said it’s the best wedding food they ever had and I second that! You really should be proud of your talent for what you did on Saturday.

The waiting & bar staff - excellent in every way, service was 5 star, smiley, polite and so attentive. You really are a real credit to the Rockbeare Manor name. Special mention to Siobhan and Abbi because I saw them most, the rest of them were still awesome

Helen - fantastic in every way from communication to nothing too much trouble and I was a pain in the arse towards the end - sorry. You were brilliant

Aimee & Andy - incredible venue, service and personal touches. You have really smashed this wedding thing. Thank you so much. We will never be able to say how truly grateful we are to you for everything you’ve done to make that day be such a great wedding. Our guests loved Rockbeare, the FOOD, service and attention to detail. We will be eternally grateful to you both

You do a fantastic job you really do and we can’t thank you enough ALL of you!

We just wanted to thank you for an amazing day on Sun 3rd September. We could not have had a better day (even the rain could not spoil it).

Given that you had done the whole thing the day before it was doubly appreciated that you still made us feel our day was special.

All the staff were impeccably discreetly present throughout the day

Stephanie, you were a complete super star and an utter delight. I do hope you had a good few days off to recover

We will not hesitate to recommend you.

We just wanted to say a very BIG thank you for all your help in the lead up and on the day of our wedding. We had the most amazing day and would love to relive it all again.

When we first visited the venue last April we loved it from the moment we saw it. At that time even though the venue was not complete we could see what a wonderful job was being done and that it would be the perfect place for our day.

It was great to be able to set up our bits and pieces the afternoon before and added to our excitement for the coming day. Our wedding day was perfect everything ran so smoothly. All the staff were friendly, fun and professional especially the bar staff who were offered numerous shots throughout the evening! A special thanks needs to go to Katie who looked after us on the day. She was so friendly, professional and nothing was too much for her. She made us both very relaxed and knew that everything was in capable hands, even though we only met her that morning.

The breakfast the next day was a nice way to finish off at the venue and was lovely to have all the flowers and trinkets from the day in there as well. The rooms were amazing just did not get enough time in them to enjoy them fully!.

We have had so many comments on the great venue, the amazing food and wine and the overall setting of the venue which certainly was a big part in making our day so very special.

We wish you all the very best for the future and all the other amazing days you will create for people.

We just wanted to write you a quick email to say that we had such an amazing wedding day on Sunday 27th August at Rockbeare and to let you know how amazing Steph Primarolo was throughout the entire day and following morning. She was incredibly kind, caring and attentive to making sure the day ran smoothly and we have been inundated with guests complimenting on how brilliant she was. Your entire team were great, but Steph was truly exceptional.

We will definitely recommend the venue to our friends and family.

I just wanted to say the biggest thank you for making our day so special on Saturday. It was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We felt so happy and relaxed, all of our guests were so well looked after.

We were just delighted with everything, from the details on the tables, to the food, the drinks, the service, the weather, to the rooms.

I could not recommend Rockbeare Manor enough. It really is a very special place.

Thank you so all the staff for all of their hard work!

Myself and my new husband got married and had the most amazing reception at the lovely Rockbeare manor. It was so exciting to know we were ...the first couple to book this venue and we will cherish this forever. From the first visit we knew this was the venue for us, the work that has been done to make this the dream wedding venue has truly paid off and this was the case for us. Our guests still continue to talk about how amazing the venue , service, food , wedding was :). From the initial booking up to the big day the service was first class, we were always made very welcome when we visited the venue. On the day we were greeted with smiling faces , drinks and the staff couldn't do enough. The getting ready room for the girls and boys worked brilliantly and it was so beautiful for photos. Onto the arrival after our church service and we knew then we could relax and enjoy our day as the team had everything in hand from arrival drinks to the evening reception. We also had a day event and it was such a beautiful day, the bbq and afternoon tea was so delicious. I can't thank you all enough for helping to make this the best day of our lives. XxxxxxxX

My wife and I married at Rockbeare at the beginning of September and we had a day that we will never forget! After looking around at other venues, Rockbeare was the one place that had everything that we was looking for! The Manor House is beautiful and the grounds are stunning. All of our guests commented on what a special venue it is. The staff at the venue I cannot compliment highly enough especially Stephanie who was so helpful before and on the day, from the professional service to the little magical tweaks.
The food was was absolutely delicious and all dietary requirements for our guests were no problem at all.
At the end of the night after a long day to be able to stay in such beautiful and elegant rooms really is the icing on the cake.
Thank you so much Stephanie & the Rockbeare Manor team for giving us such a special day and amazing memories.

My husband and I was married at Rockbeare on the 11th August 2017. Before I even set foot in the building I knew this magical place was going to be the back drop for our perfect day and looking back now...it wasn't just perfect, it was magical, breath taking and quite literally the best day of both of our lives! The team at rockbeare manor went above and beyond the call of duty. We were made to feel like we were the king and queen of the manor! Nothing was too much and everything was tended to in such a way that the whole day ran so smoothly (bar our coach of guests getting stuck on the m5 motor way) Since our day I have spoken to most of the guests and everyone of them complemented the venue and the food and how perfect the day was!! We can't thank rockbeare enough for letting us host our wedding and to anyone thinking of booking this place.......DO IT NOW! You sure as hell won't regret it

"We had our wedding here last month and wow what a truly amazing venue! We knew we wanted to get married here as soon as we saw it it's just a stunning building inside and out that's been finished to such a high standard. Thanks to Aimée and Andy the day ran so smoothly and the staff couldn't do enough for you a massive thanks to all of you for all your hard work!
Everyone commented on how delicious all the food was - from the 3 course meal to the burgers and chips in the evening and the ice cream tricycle was a massive hit!
The day from start to finish was just perfect and we're so glad we chose to get married here I can't recommend it enough
