Breathtaking Intimate Weddings and Elopements in Devon
Tree Top Escape
Tree Top Escape is an exceptional intimate wedding venue in North Devon. For us it can be summed up as offering: thoughtful design at every juncture; intimacy and totally privacy; luxury and decadence; and, a wonderful sense of being at one with nature which is all too rare in today’s fast-moving world.
The unique and clever design of this small wedding venue, literally amongst the tree tops, means that you and your guests will truly feel you are walking on air on your wedding day. It’s a place that brings together a unique blend of that feeling of being emersed in nature, yet with every luxury on hand to make your intimate wedding experience truly special and decadent.
You’ll find Tree Top Escape tucked away on a jaw-droppingly beautiful country estate amongst the rolling North Devon Hills, where every season brings a different colour palette and vibe, providing an amazing backdrop to your wedding day. And we really mean this! Tree Top Escape has been carefully designed to ensure that the stunning outside vistas are bought inside for your wedding day and stay.
Here’s what we mean…The Nest is where your wedding ceremony will take place and this benefits from double aspect 8m wide glass doors opening onto a balcony with frameless balustrades giving you and your guests uninterrupted views of the valley and the lake to both enjoy in the moment and also to treasure forever in your wedding photography. The exquisitely designed Tree House provides luxurious accommodation for up to 4 and offers stunning views down the unspoilt valley. Here you’ll also find a private balcony providing plentiful space for alfresco dining and to top it all, a hot tub! The wooden walkway that cleverly links The Tree House to The Nest provides the most unique “aisle” for your wedding ceremony. You’ll also have use of The Meadow Room which looks out onto the gorgeous wildflower meadow. This can be used as a meeting place for your guests (including tea and coffee facilities), a private space for pampering treatments or just a place to gather your thoughts and relax. Finally, there’s the Grill-Haus which adds another dimension to your wedding day dining options.
If you’re a couple who love nature, clever architecture and are looking for a luxuriously relaxed way to marry on a smaller scale that’s big on wow factors then Tree Top Escape is a great fit for you.
