" A stunning rural setting for a very special and wonderful wedding "
Nestling in twelve acres of the beautiful Tamar valley on the edge of Dartmoor and down a winding country lane you will find Wonwood Barton a unique 19th century farmstead brimming with charm and character and surrounded by glorious countryside with spectacular views towards Cornwall. Converted from the original buildings our beamed traditional roundhouse, a large pretty colourful courtyard and four eclectic private suites with a south facing lawn and extensive grounds beyond will provide you with a stunning rural setting for a very special and wonderful wedding.
The Roundhouse is the heart of the venue a charming early 19th century converted grain store in the middle of the courtyard. It is a perfect dining space for smaller gatherings of up to 40 guests sitting down or 50 for a self – service buffet. Wonderful for either a sharing banquet on our long rustic trestle tables or fine dining and more relaxed eating on intimate scattered round tables! The roundhouse is amazing for small intimate weddings but also brilliant for serving drinks and canapes on arrival or a quintessential English vintage tea. The blank canvas with its old beamed and vaulted ceiling and white washed walls will allow you to decorate and create your own unique wedding
THE CORNER BAR
Recently converted from the original harness room the bar is a brilliant place for meeting your guests after the ceremony.
A great place for relaxing and chatting and with an outside covered brick terrace perfect for any weather.
The woodburner creates a cosy warm ambience on chilly spring and autumn evenings and the canopy will shade you from the hot summer sun.
With no corkage charges the quirky rustic bar made from old crates will allow you to display wine, beer and soft drinks allowing guests to help themselves or can be used as a traditional bar if required
The courtyard is the jewel in the crown. With its eclectic mix of flora and foliage our courtyard has the feeling of rustic charm and a bygone era, the perfect setting for parties and gatherings. A dramatic entrance for all your guests on arrival. There is plenty of interesting outside seating and tables in all the nooks and crannies and the old creamery with its original wooden door is a wonderful backdrop for the wedding dress photo opp. The resident cast pigs are also happy to oblige. The festoon lighting creates a relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere on a warm summers evening and lights up the sky on a crisp winter night.
Wonwood Barton is proud to offer 4 individual suites providing charming accommodation.
Three of our rooms all with private access into the courtyard are perfect for rolling into bed after all the festivities. All converted from the old stone farm buildings and retaining all the character but with all the modern comforts. They all offer huge 6ft beds one with a four poster probably best suited to the bride and groom.
One can be either a twin or super king double. The fourth room is a self-contained cottage situated next to the woodstore great for those who want to be more independent. Sadly we do not allow children to stay overnight as our rooms are unsuitable. The beds are quite high of the ground so not great for guests with limited mobility.
Wonwood Cottage is a one bedroom cottage available for B &B or self-catering. The whitewashed vaulted ceiling and arched doorway make the ambience airy and spacious. With its huge super king size bed and luxury sprung mattress a lie- in may be order of the day! It has a delightful separate sitting room/kitchen equipped with wood burner, dishwasher,microwave,full size fridge, TV and all necessary appliances for self-catering. Outside is a private patio with table and chairs.

Full of charm, boasting a separate living area with wood burner and wonderful views across the valley it really is the perfect escape. Other facilities include shower room with rain-head and under floor heating, tea/coffee, Freeview TV and Wi Fi Access.

Once home to the family governess cart it has now been transformed into a delightful spacious suite with a charming rustic superking sized bed, a separate sitting room with log burner and French windows opening out onto the lawn offering spectacular views.
