About Ash Barton

Dating back to 973 AD, Ash Barton is as old as it is beautiful. The manor house sits high above the North Devon countryside, with spectacular views over the moors to the sea in the distance. The house is divinely suited for a Bohemian country wedding, or a weekend break with family or a group of friends.

Ash Barton has 13 bedrooms and can sleep up to 35, with the use of bunks and fold-up beds. There are 9 bathrooms.

Downstairs, there is a large kitchen and sitting room (with a piano), and a dining room. There is also a fabulous indoor swimming pool. The Games Barn is an ideal space for large parties and functions, and contains lots of diversions, such as pool tables, a trampoline and fully-functioning disco space!

Ash Barton has 25 acres of woodland and meadows, and within the grounds is the old chapel, which makes a very romantic setting for a wedding, or more intimate party. It can seat up to 50 to dine, 100 to sit as an audience.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“Ash Barton is very much a laid-back, family kind of place. It has a great timeless atmosphere and allows you to enjoy yourself in friendly grand-without-feeling-it surroundings. And the nearest neighbour is over a mile away!”

About The Location

Ash Barton is only 3 miles from Saunton Sands with its famous dunes. The house is an excellent base for a Devon holiday, as it allows easy access to the north coast, including Ilfracombe, Lynton and Lynmouth, yet is still within reach of resorts and attractions to the west of Barnstaple such as Bideford, Appledore and Clovelly. It is a 20-minute drive from Exmoor and 30 minutes from Dartmoor.

Things To Do

There is a huge amount to do in the area; walking in the nature reserve at Braunton Burroughs (great for bird watching) and surfing and kite-surfing at Croyde. Putsborough, to the west side of Woolacombe Bay, is perfect for coast walking, and the Tarka Trail (for cycling) passes very close to Braunton, Ash Barton’s village. For those ‘staying in’ there is a full range of garden furniture, outdoor barbecue and even a fire pit. Inside the house has log burning stoves for wintery evenings.

Weddings at Ash Barton

You can be married out on the lawn, or inside: the choice is yours. The chapel can hold 100 as a congregation, and the Game Barn has a capacity of 200. Best of all…no curfew!

Our feet have only just touched the ground after getting married at Ash Barton 01/02/2020. We just wanted to echo all of the amazing things that other couples have already said about the whole thing. Ash Barton truly is the MOST wonderful venue! A huge thank you to Simon, Pete, Katharine and Tom for letting us stay at AB and for always being on hand to help with any issues. The whole place is so well equipped with all of the finer details accounted for, you won’t have any tro uble settling in and feeling right at home. The newly revamped barn is awesome, everything you could ever want to throw the party of a lifetime. The chapel is beautiful, the swimming pool a big hit and so many other beautiful areas around the house and land to explore. For those of you who might be worried about chapel space like we were, we hired in benches from Western Event Hire which were affordable and meant we could comfortably seat over 110 people without moving chairs back and forth. Also, heating was extremely effective so don’t let the cold weather put you off! We had 37 adults and 6 children staying for the 4 nights and 150 guests on the day, not once did it feel cramped. Nothing but love and gorgeous memories of the whole thing. Thank you Ash Barton for giving us 4 days of wedding bliss with all of our nearest and dearest in the most spectacular of settings. Long live AB!

We got married at Ash Barton in November 2019. We can't recommend it enough. The house and grounds are so beautiful and a truly unique place to call your home for the most important few days of your life! The venue is run by a team who have created something really special and support you to make it your own. Simon, Tom and Pete we can't thank you enough. Dan and Gen
