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 an outstanding reputation for exceptional food and service and going the extra mile for all their guests.

A pair of impressive white pillars marks the entrance to one of the South West’s most elegant, 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!
Amicia & Will
Thank you so much for a wonderful day!It was perfect and you worked tirelessly! All your efforts were much appreciated,5 star service!!
I know we still need to pay for our meals and let us know if there are any other additions. We are back from our trip on the 5th November.
Please pass out thanks on to the waiting staff, kitchen staff and of course the cleaners!
Many many many thanks!!!
Malindi & Andy
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.
Steph & Chris
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.
Jayne & Laurence
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!
Steph & Ant
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
Cassidy & Richard
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.
Jodie & Paul
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
Amy & Ryan
"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
Rhiannon & Ben
It's been a little while after our wedding now and we wanted to take this oppotunity to thank you and your team. You were brilliant! You were so helpful and attentive to us. You helped our guests and your team were fantastic in everything they did. The food was brilliant your burgers may have been the best ever.

The venue, your efforts and your teams efforts were noticed by a number of guests who all said they were surprised at how good and how brilliant you were.

We enjoyed our day so much and it was perfect.

Thank you again.

Dear Jess, we honestly cannot thank you and the Rockbeare staff enough! It was truly the best day of our lives! Everything flowed so smoothly and went off without a hitch! Every one of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is, how incredible the food was and how fantastic the staff were and we agree one million percent!!
Ruth Breading
What can I say! Thank you so so much for everything you both did to ensure we had the best wedding day ever! It far exceeded all of our dreams and expectations! Everything went so smoothly and effortlessly that we didn’t have to think about anything all day and could just be totally present in our wedding and we are hugely grateful to you both for that.

Davy – you literally had everything covered! From making sure we had canapés during our photos, to bringing us a pasty at the end of the night – somehow knowing that we wouldn’t have had much of a chance to eat ourselves. Nothing was too much trouble and you were omnipresent from our arrival until we left the next day. Thank you so so much for everything – you were beyond incredible.

Also, we have to mention the food which was insane! We’ve had loads of people say it was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding (I don’t think there was a single crumb of crème brulee left anywhere!)

Thank you both so much for your help with setting up as well. The place just looked so beautiful – I was totally overwhelmed when I arrived so thank you for leading the suppliers and getting everything done so we could just chill and relax. And the effort that was made to ensure that the breakfast room was decorated and everyone ate together the next morning was such a lovely touch – it made the whole event feel extra special.

Basically, you totally made it for us and we feel incredibly grateful. I hope you both managed to chill and unwind a bit on the Sunday!

Hugest of thanks again,

Ruth & Liam xx

Hi Davy,

Hope you’re well. I just wanted to send you a quick message to say a huge thank you for Friday. We had the best day and you were all
wonderful! Nothing was too much and you kept us calm and with a drink in hand all day! The whole team were fab. A couple of the guests also couldn’t speak highly enough of the girl who was on placement too!

We had so many compliments about the venue too and the food in particular. Rockbeare is just so stunning! Thank you for making sure our day ran perfectly.

Thank you so much again,

Hi Jessica,

We honestly had the day of our dreams! We still can’t talk about it without welling up haha! It was just truly magical! All of our guests have been talking about how beautiful the venue was, how relaxed the day felt and how everything flowed seamlessly, and of course how stunning the food was!!

You really made everything so special and we cannot thank you all enough for making what everyone is saying the best wedding they have ever been to!

All the best and many thanks,

Scott and Paige

Dear Aimee
We are only just starting to come down from what has been an absolutely incredible few weeks. The day itself was so amazing and we could not have wished for a better occasion. It went so smoothly, largely down to you and the team so thank you so very much for everything.
Mr & Mrs Edwards
On Saturday 18th January 2020 our daughter was married at Rockbeare Manor and Jessica looked after us and our guests for the celebrations. She worked continuously through the whole day and must be commended for her professionalism and friendliness along with her whole team. Thank you also to Davy and Cameron who looked after us on the Friday night when we had a family meal which was very special.

We were very grateful for all the advice offered which was an enormous help and if anyone is considering the venue we strongly recommend taking them up on their suggestions.

The venue, food and hospitality were perfect, we even had good weather allowing us to have canapes outside.

Thank you for the most perfect day at such a beautiful venue.

Mr & Mrs Edwards
Harriet and James
Dear Davy and all of your wonderful staff, James and I would like to thank you for the smooth running of our seemingly perfect wedding day.
You guys made it what it was, and we will be eternally grateful for your efforts, kindness and generosity. Everything you guys did for us was with grace.
Cameron and Johnny were brilliant aswell! Cameron really looked after the bridal party in the morning, he treated us all like princesses and couldn’t do enough for us, it was so lovely as a bride to feel like nothing was too much effort.
And of course it goes without saying, the help the lead up to the big day from Aimee, Helen and Jessica is also so appreciated and we are so grateful.
Hopefully we see you all again soon as someone’s wedding guests!
All the best to you all, the new Mr and Mrs Rees, Harriet and James xx
Becca and Ryan

Dear Aimee and the Rockbeare Manor team, Thank you so much for all your hard work that went into helping organise our wedding day. We had the best day we could possibly imagine. It all ran smoothly, the venue looked beautiful and the food was delicious. You were lovely, our parents have spoken about how nice you were and we also enjoyed all our interactions with you. You made planning a wedding a very easy, enjoyable experience. You made us feel listened to and valued plus you then put on the best day! It was lovely seeing everything we had discussed come together, from the garden games, the table tennis, to keeping us on track during the day. You're clearly very good at what you do. Our family loved the hot chocolate/coffee time after we had left and also said breakfast was very special. Thanks Aimee! Please could you pass on our thanks to the chefs too. We have had SO many people tell us "it was the best wedding food" they had ever had. It was all delicious and also looked beautiful. From the canapes through to the dessert buffet stand, it was brilliant. Our interactions with all staff were lovely, Simone, Andy and Helen, thank you. Tom and Jo x
Stevie Bessell
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Sophie and Cameron for everything you did for us during our wedding day (and in the lead up to it!). We had the most perfect day and it turned out exactly as we had hoped. So many of our guests commented on the amazing venue, delicious food and wonderfully helpful and attentive staff. No request from our guests was too much trouble for your team and the way they all conducted themselves helped make it as special as it was. We loved you guys getting involved with the photo booth, it was hilarious!
Helene Baudains
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to (especially) you and your team on our wedding day. You sorted everything and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Absolutely everyone has been raving about how beautiful Rockbeare is and how attentive the staff were. The fireworks were a massive hit and I really appreciated all your hard work in keeping it a secret and getting everyone outside on time.
Sophie and Lee Thomas
We just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all of your help in the run up and our wedding day itself. We had the best day and would like to show our appreciation for the stunning venue and staff that all played such an important role in ensuring our day was perfect. Helen and Davy, you were really helpful throughout the booking/planning process and we really appreciated your support and advice. We felt in safe hands the whole time and ultimately had fun planning our day which could have been a very stressful process. Elizabeth, we cannot thank you enough for your hard work on the day. You worked so hard to get everything spot on - everything went without a hitch throughout both the day and evening and we felt your organisational skills and attentiveness were exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble and every detail was thought of. Your care and thoughtfulness didn't go unnoticed and we appreciate it so much - you were also an extremely calming influence when nerves were getting to us! We felt informed and looked after the whole time. The food was absolutely delicious on the day and did not disappoint. Food was really important to us and we could not fault any part of it. Everyone was, and still is, raving about it. Thank you all - we're hoping we get invited to another wedding up there so we can experience it all over again! Sophie & Lee Thomas x
Mr an Mrs D
Dear Davy,

Where do we even begin... Rob and I cannot thank you, Helen, Cameron, Johnny and all of the team, enough for making our wedding day so special! Everything right from our first visit to Rockbeare Manor, until after breakfast the morning following the wedding, was just amazingly perfect.

The wedding day for us was completely stress free thanks to all of you. The team provided us with everything we needed, often before we even realised we needed it! You were always one step ahead of everything and we will be forever grateful.

It goes without saying that Rockbeare Manor is a beautiful building, but the staff are what really make it. You all worked so hard, and such long hours!! You made us feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble and you really went the extra mile to make us feel so special on our big day.

We definitely have to say a big thank you to the chefs, I’m sure all our guests will agree that the food was so delicious!! An extra thank you to Cameron for organising chicken burgers at 1am - so glad we didn’t miss out on those, they were out of this world!

So thank you again for being a part of our wedding day, it honestly was the best day ever! We wish we could do it all again. Hopefully we can be guests at another wedding at Rockbeare one day.

Best wishes
Becky & Rob x
Mr and Mrs Onslow
Dear all at Rockbeare, we want to say a huge thank-you to everyone involved in our special day. Our wedding was more than perfect, it was everything we had wished for and more! Your venue and team were out of this world... words can't describe how helpful and amazing you all were. You all work so hard and deserve a lot of credit! The manor itself is like something out of a fairytale!
Cameron - What can I say... You blew us away with your kindness, eagerness to make our day perfect and how much you cared for us. Nothing was a problem or too much trouble, you made us feel like we were the only 2 people in the world that mattered, we are really grateful you were involved in our day. You remained very calm considering how busy the bar was! A massive thank-you to you!
Davy was also a star and again nothing was a problem! He made us feel at ease and that everything was under control.
Food - We had a lot of compliments from our guests saying how amazing the food was, and we totally agree! Everything was so tasty and freshly made. The canapés were insane!
A lot of our guests have said its the best wedding they've ever been too - and this is all down to your amazing team!
Chloe and Joe
Good evening Davy,

Myself and Joe just wanted to say a massive thankyou to you and your team! You yourself looked after us from the very first meeting at the venue, all the way to our special day, and we can’t thankyou enough for that.

All our guest have said how amazing the staff were in looking after us all and making everything perfect!

A massive thankyou needs to go to Cameron, he made sure me and joe were always happy and had everything we needed! Nothing seemed like it was to much trouble! Excellent member of staff!

The food was so yummy! No one had a bad word to say about it and the burgers, guest were saying they have never had a burger that’s tasted so good!

Thankyou for excellent communication leading up to the wedding and making everything so calm and clear.

Once again, Thankyou very much and we will be recommending rockbeare at any given chance.

Regards, Mr & Mrs Coughlin.
