The Folly, Devon

Vow renewals and elopement weddings just for two

A declaration of love to your life-partner can take many forms, and for some of us, an audience is not required. In fact, some “you and me time” to properly emerse yourselves in each other and your relationship is far more appealing to a growing number of couples.  Maybe you are married already and want to renew your vows, reaffirming you love for one another? Maybe you want to take your commitment to the next level and get married, sealing your union in a legal, church or celebrant-led ceremony?  Whatever your preference, we’ve found an amazing little place that’s perfect, just for two. It combines a real “hideaway” with a number of flexible wedding and vow renewal options. Oh, and not forgetting an amazing array of photography opportunity locations.

Introducing The Folly, Devon

Hidden amongst the undulating countryside just 20 minutes south west of Exeter, as the trees start to thicken and you really feel your adventure is starting. Tucked away in this enchanted landscape you’ll find The Folly, a unique and luxurious countryside idyll, just for two, set in 2 acres of imaginatively and intelligently landscaped gardens that take in views over Brickhouse Vineyard, woodland countryside and to the sea beyond. 

 

Recently refurbished, The Folly offers a relaxed yet decadent vibe, and provides a tranquil and romantic place to stay the night before and after your vow renewal or wedding day. Lots of couples extend their stay further, extending their “love bubble” for a few more precious days in this beautiful and oh so comfortable haven. On arrival you are assured of the warmest welcome before you relax and enjoy afternoon tea provided by Carol the owner, chef and cake maker overlooking the terraced gardens and taking in the view, beautiful aromas from the well planted garden and listening to the bird song. There’s lots to do right on your door step including: a Michelin restaurant in Mamhead; the 17th Century harbour town of Cockwood with two wonderful pubs; walking trails through the forest; and, of course easy access to the South Devon coast and Dartmoor.

All the help you need is on hand

Ahead of your stay Carol will dig into her “little black book” and can help you arrange any services you want to include in your stay including, but not limited to: hair and make-up services; flowers; cakes and catering options just for two; photography; videography; transport and other little treats or surprises you wish to include. Planning an elopement wedding or vow renewal really could not be easier or more enjoyable as Carol will be there with you on your journey to provide helps and support as needed.
