About Huntsham Court

Huntsham Court is very large but surprisingly home-like and comfortable. It suits informal family parties, retreats, reunions with friends, family holidays, civil partnerships, weddings, special celebrations and parties of walkers or sports enthusiasts.

It sleeps up to 92 people, in 40 bedrooms (25 of which are en-suite). The bedrooms include two family suites and a ground-floor room for those wishing to avoid stairs. Each bedroom is uniquely decorated and perfectly appointed: some have four-poster beds, some silk-canopied beds, and most offer space for a cot or single bed for a young child.

Downstairs, the five grand reception rooms include the library with hours’-worth of books, a beautiful drawing room, dining room (complete with ancient tapestries), the Great Hall (perfect for dancing), and a gentlemen’s club-styled bar. Each room is bright and airy, with gorgeous views across the Devon countryside.

All of the rooms are infinitely flexible, and the house has a jolly porter or two on hand to organise an auditorium, or congregation, or create a dance space.

There is room for an event or banquet for up to 130 guests.

The house sits in 5.5 acres of gardens and parkland, and is surrounded by the 5,000 acre Huntsham Estate. There is a croquet lawn in the garden, and lots of secret benches, and places to hide, should you wish.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“The great advantage to this house has to be its sheer size and flexibility. Dining spaces can be switched about, furniture moved. Huntsham’s run by a great team, who are endlessly obliging, and will work with you to get each detail exactly how you’d like it to be during your stay.”

Things To Do

There’s a huge amount to do on the estate, such as fencing, archery, pistol-shooting, clay shooting… then wine tasting or dancing lessons in the evening. There are also lots of classes you could take – everything from flower arranging, to baking, to magic lessons.

Should you ever wish to leave the house and grounds (it would be a wrench), then there’s kayaking, riding, fishing, paintballing… everything you can think of that you might like to do so near to Exmoor and Somerset. Your hosts are experts at arranging unusual pursuits, so do contact them for their suggestions.


Huntsham Court works perfectly as a place to be with your family and friends for your special day. The house holds a license for civil ceremonies both indoors and outdoors, or there’s the option of the beautiful old village church (which happens to be on the driveway).

There are five hours of event-planning included within the wedding package, and all banqueting furniture, linens, crockery and cutlery are included. There are no pesky corkage charges. The house has a late entertainment license and is happy for you to use your own suppliers, or those recommended by the house.

There are no hidden fees or corkage charges. Short stays are available upon request.

My son recently married his new husband at Huntsham. They had previously booked it for April which they then postponed until September. After originally planning the wedding for 75 people they eventually only had 28 due to government restrictions. They were very undecided about whether a wedding in a venue of this size would work.They had no reason to worry at all, if anything it made it more special having an intimate wedding. Everything about the wedding was perfect, the se tting for Huntsham is beautiful and tranquil. The gardens were full of colour but I can imagine the grounds are beautiful whatever the season. The house is amazing, every room is impeccably decorated and furnished. The staff were fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us. Charlotte, Gary, Rob and Colin were invaluable. They had the ceremony in Great Hall which was beautiful and the wedding breakfast in the Yellow room. The library is definitely my favourite with masses of books and big squashy sofas. We have all decided that we wouldn’t have changed one thing about the wedding as it was so perfect. If anyone is undecided about a smaller wedding at Huntsham, think again. Thank you Huntsham for the beautiful memories you helped us make. The boys are now trying to think up an excuse for another celebration at a Huntsham x Jane

Excellent all round! Beautiful rooms, great staff, great event planning. We had a wonderful weekend celebrating a major milestone birthday with 90 family and friends, a great time was had by all!…#
