Hall, Bishops Tawton, Devon

Hall, has been home to the Chichester Family since the early 14th century. The house is approached up a mile long wooded drive. The current Victorian house, a vernacular mansion in the 16th century style, was built in the 1840’s for Robert Chichester by Philip C.Hardwick. Hardwick produced a series of grand reception and family rooms with splendid views over the Taw valley and a staircase hall which forms the centre of the house. 

 At the far end of the building lies an imposing Gothic Hall with oak tie-beam roof, stencilled windows, stained glass and a minstrel’s gallery. Outside there is a medley of estate buildings including a medieval barn and a 17th century stable block. Only opened for the first time in 2013.


Weddings

The picturesque Herner Church is available for small intimate ceremonies followed by the opportunity to celebrate at Hall. 

Hall offers an idyllic setting for your fairy tale wedding reception with two marquee sites to choose from; one to the front of the house with exceptional/stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside or the historic Orchard. Both sites allow for the house to be used as a imposing photographic backdrop.  

Alternatively there is the option to enjoy your wedding breakfast in the Great Hall, moving into the marquee for music and dancing.


Accommodation

We would like to welcome you to Hall, a stunning Grade II listed ‘Neo Jacobean’ house built in the 1840’s where you will always find a warm and friendly greeting and a superb atmosphere whenever you visit.
