World Inspired Tents

Unit 17 & 18 
Coxleigh, Barton, Shirwell, Barnstaple, Devon, EX31 4JL, Barnstaple, Devon
Up to 1000 guests
Our story began in the summer of 2006 when Donna and Ed Wright discovered the tipis at a country fair. They instantly fell in love with the beauty and natural feel of the tents. The seed was sown and in July 2007 World Inspired Tents was born. The first dedicated tipi rental business in the South West.

After ten years, and with many hundreds of events behind us, World Inspired Tents has changed considerably from those fledgling days. We have built a reputation for being one of the most professional, reliable, well-equipped and friendly tipi hire companies in the country, but we remain every bit the family run business that was launched nine years ago.


We’ve grown, not just in size, but through the knowledge and experience we’ve gained along the way. We are a team of people who really know what we are doing, and we really love what we do!

Up to 200 guests
We opened the house for wedding ceremonies and receptions in 2001 and have had the pleasure of working with many couples to create their ideal wedding day and have had some lovely testimonials.

We are really flexible in terms of our approach to receptions and have helped to arrange all types of wedding, from shabby chic, to hay-bale seating and more traditional weddings.​


​​We think it helps that three family members have been married at the house, so we also appreciate what it's like to arrange your own wedding at the house, as well as some of the challenges.


The Ceremony

We hold marriage ceremonies in the Great Hall, a beautiful space with plaster ceilings and a huge fireplace. It's a lovely location for the ceremony as you feel at the centre of the building's history. It is possible to seat up to a hundred people at the ceremony. You have 3 hours for the ceremony and drinks reception.


The Reception

There have been many memorable receptions at the house, with people enjoying the opportunity to have a relaxing 2 hour reception in the Great Hall and Morning Room and then out into the gardens for drinks or dinner. Many couples choose to have a marquee whilst others have risked the weather and had open air receptions - with umbrellas at the ready. If you decide to have a marquee, then you can host 200 or more, depending on the marquee you choose.


For smaller wedding parties (100-150) there is the option of having the reception in the Great Hall and adjoining rooms.


• Grade I listed manor house in Wales, situated close to Abergavenny and the Black Mountains

• Set in 100 acres of stunning gardens and meadow land
