Coombe Trenchard

Coombe Trenchard, Lewtrenchard, West Devon, EX20 4PW, Devon, Devon
Up to 120 guests
Coombe Trenchard was designed and built for the Sperlings, wealthy Edwardian friends of Sabine Baring-Gould of nearby Lewtrenchard Manor. The family had lived on site in the old rectory for several years before deciding on a replacement house, to be designed by Walter Sarel of London and built by Dart & Francis of Crediton, in 1906. The gardens were redesigned at the same time. Both house and gardens are redolent of the high Arts & Crafts style of the belle époque.

The estate comprises mainly pasture and woodland, with the house centrally located and approached via a 1km driveway. The gardens are laid out around the house and incorporate a stream (the parish boundary) with bridges, a woodland garden, terraces and walks and many Arts & Crafts features. From employing 6 full time outdoors staff for the 50 or so years the Sperlings lived at Coombe Trenchard, the property went through a long period of much less intensive maintenance. so on our first visit

to the house and gardens in 2007 we were greeted by the challenging prospect of a kitchen garden that had been lost to brambles, and which the then owner had not seen for 35 years, and a woodland garden that was an impenetrable jungle with 15m high laurel trees blotting out all sunlight. However it was clear to us from many of the features that were intact and from the clues left behind of missing paths and bridges that this was a very special place.

Monks Withecombe

monks Withecombe, TQ13 8JY, Chagford, Devon
As the garden developed, the internal spaces also took shape. The Haybarn, with its three lovely windows looking out towards Dartmoor, evolved almost without conscious thought into The Gallery.

The Roundhouse – built in the 1860s to accommodate the milling of corn and wheat – became Simon and Andy’s Mastering Studio, Super Audio Mastering.


The Cow Barn provided a lovely home for Simon’s parents, Joy and Jim Heyworth and now 15 years on there are plans for the Corn Barn too.


Since 2011, Monks Withecombe has been a Licensed Wedding Venue, offering do-it-yourself country-style weddings hosting four or so every year since.



And of course, last but not least the middle Hay Barn became The Gallery, with contemporary artwork glowing on the walls and the genius of the artists framed by long views to Dartmoor.

£6150
Up to 200 guests
Although Launcells Manor House is referred to in the Domesday Book of 1086, Launcells Barton as we know it is made up of two halves. The varied heritage of the house and its different architectural details are part of what makes this venue so unique.

Thought to date back to the 14th century, the older half of the house was once held by a cell of Augustine monks affiliated with Devon’s Hartland Abbey. Having originally included a chapel, this part of Launcells Barton retains a number of charming original features.


The Bridal Suite boasts large window seats overlooking the walled garden below while a rustic church door leads from the kitchen into the larder. Look closely and you’ll even find a priest hole that dates back to the dissolution of the monasteries during the reign of King Henry VIII!


With its distinctive, regal facade, large, light rooms and high ceilings, the newer half of the property is very obviously Georgian. This part of the house was designed by Sir John Call. Once High Sheriff of Cornwall, his work can also be seen at Bodmin Jail, giving your best man plenty of scope for jokes about ‘the old ball and chain’!


In its entirety, the house has been lovingly restored and brought back to life by current owners, Matthew and Lara, to provide luxury accommodation for you and your wedding party.



Nestled on the far side of the house at the top of its own private staircase, the beautifully appointed Bridal Suite provides an elegant space in which to prepare for your wedding day and spend your first night together as a married couple.


With its large roll top bath and luxurious design, the en suite bathroom is perfect for a little pampering, so you can spend time with your bridesmaids the night before your wedding or indulge in a relaxing bath the morning after. Either way, waking up within the sumptuous surroundings of the Bridal Suite is the perfect start to married life!


In the main part of the house, you’ll find a further five bedrooms for your close friends and family. Pull-out beds for children provide even more flexibility and there’s also the possibility to use the fields surrounding the house for additional accommodation such as yurts or tents.


You and your guests will have full use of the property’s large communal kitchen, complete with Aga and a beautifully presented welcome hamper filled with delicious local produce to enjoy during your stay.


Being so close to Bude your wedding guests are also spoilt for choice with hotels, B&B’s, self-catering accommodation and glamping/ camping sites all within 5 minutes drive of Launcells Barton.
