Come and explore all that River Cottage has to offer for your special day at The River Cottage HQ, our secluded 100 acre organic estate and working farm, nestled in the beautiful Devon countryside. See our wedding space options including the traditional 18th Century Threshing Barn and iconic River Cottage Farmhouse, with its well stocked walled kitchen gardens. Explore the farm and all its surroundings, the courtyard, cosy yurt, and our fabulous new Kitchen & Store, that has recently opened at the top of our track.

Mingle and speak with our experienced team about what we offer here at River Cottage and how we can work with you to create your truly memorable and unique day; Lucy, our Wedding Planner and coordinator, will take you through everything we can do. Gelf, our Culinary Director will also be available to talk all things food and drink with you, as well as serving up some truly inspiring and wonderful canapes and drinks throughout.

Not only that, but we will also have guest appearances from some of our special suppliers!
