Can we have exclusive use of the venue?

Absolutely! Our two day hire means that Harefield Barn is exclusively yours for the duration of your booking, giving you plenty of time to relax, prepare, and enjoy the day of a lifetime.

Are you licenced for civil ceremonies?

Yes we are - in fact we have no less than seven different licensed locations at the Barn so you can choose your favourite depending on the number of guests you have and the vibe of your day.

Can we have the wedding ceremony outdoors?

Our stunning views provide the backdrop when you say 'I do' in The Clock House, our beautiful outdoor ceremony space. However, recent changes in legislation mean that you can choose anywhere within our grounds to exchange your vows, so if you would like to hold your ceremony under the beautiful lime tree or even in the wildflower meadow - the choice is yours!

Do you charge corkage if we supply our own wine?

We currently allow you to bring in some of your own alcoholic drinks without any corkage at all!

Can we use our own caterers?

You certainly can! We are happy for you to use any professional company for the catering during your day.

From what time can we get access to decorate the venue?

When you book Harefield Barn, it is exclusively yours for two full days! You will have the whole of the day before to prepare, and enjoy time with your family and friends, so on the day of your wedding you can truly relax and have fun.

What time does the reception need to finish?

We ask guests to leave by 12.30 am.

Are there noise restrictions if we have a live band?

We just ask that live bands finish at 11 pm, and at that point we will close the external doors, but you're more than welcome to continue partying with recorded music.

Are fireworks allowed?

Yes! As long as they are provided by a professional licensed company. There may be certain times of the year that we have to have a few restrictions on length and loudness, but you can still enjoy a fabulous display.

Is confetti allowed?

Confetti is a beautiful traditional part of your day and we are happy to let you have either fresh or dried petals for your confetti. We just ask that they are un-dyed, and I'm afraid confetti cannons are a no-no due to the damage they cause to local wildlife.

Are candles allowed?

Unfortunately, our insurance doesn't allow naked flames, but we have a beautiful selection of battery operated wax candles for hire which give you the same effect.

Is there a honeymoon or bridal suite?


Is there accommodation on site?


Is there additional accommodation nearby?

There is plenty of local accommodation in the form of holiday cottages and Air B&B's, and as we are just a 10 minute taxi ride from Exeter or Crediton, accommodation is not a problem for guests.

About Harefield Barn

Standing on the family farm 10 minutes from Exeter, Harefield Barn has flexibility and personal service at its heart. Its elevated position and huge windows, flood Harefield Barn with light and provides fabulous views over Devon’s rolling hills.

Close to Exeter, but a world away, we have wildflower meadows, orchards, cornfields and staggering views almost everywhere you look - perfect for your special photographs!

Harefield Barn, once described as 'barn chic', provides a fresh modern style with plenty of characterful features. Perfect whatever the weather - it's a truly inside/outside venue.

Versatility is key, with 7 licensed spaces for 2 to 200, including our beautiful Clock House for outdoor ceremonies and The Tallet as an inside option standing by! With 5 beautiful churches within 3 miles, Harefield Barn also makes the perfect spot for a fabulous reception.

The Leveret Suite is a hugely popular with our brides. Furnished as a stylish boudoir, it has ample space for the bride and her party to prepare, with lots of light for hair and make-up; perfect for stunning ‘getting-ready’ photos. Here the bride and her bridesmaids and family can have a fabulous relaxed morning together before the main event. It doubles as a charming ‘sitting room’ for couples to escape during their day, for more senior family members in the evening, or even a travel cot for the little ones!

Flexibility is key - we don’t tie you down to specific suppliers so you can create a truly bespoke wedding. And don't forget, we're there to help you every step of the way!

Ours is a small family business, so to keep the personal nature of what we offer, we limit the number of weddings we host each year so we can give each one the attention it deserves.

Customer Reviews

Wow, where to begin! What a beautiful venue. We had the most perfect wedding at Harefield Barn. We brought our wedding forward due to the government restrictions and Deborah and Robert were fantastic in accommodating everything. From our initial visit in 2019, we knew Harefield Barn was the venue for us. Stunning inside and out, with incredible views ❤

We got married at Harefield barn in September 2021. The venue was perfect for us to be able to create the wedding of our dreams with our own choice of suppliers and decorations. Deborah and Robert couldn’t have done enough for us leading up and during our extended hire. Even during uncertain times they put our minds at ease and we’re always there to help if needed! Massive thank you Deborah and Robert - guests are still commenting on how fabulous the day was.

Fantastic venue and fantastic hosts. Deborah and the team made our day so special. From day one until the actual wedding day they were so accommodating, so professional but also made it so personal to us. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you to Deborah and all at Harefield Barn. You guys are the best!! With love Mark and Natalie
