Cadhay is a unique venue for a Devon wedding, for house parties or to celebrate a landmark birthday, anniversary, reunion with friends and family, or other special occasion

Staying at Cadhay

Cadhay is a truly magical place to stay for a remarkable and unique self-catering holiday for groups of family and friends. The Tudor Manor House and our Holiday Cottages can sleep a total of 36 people in comfort.

The whole estate exudes the history and grandeur of centuries past, but the house itself is far from a museum. Cadhay has been beautifully restored and offers modern comforts. It is a place where you can live comfortably and confidently in the rural Devon countryside with the past all around you, yet still very much in touch with the modern world of today.


Weddings Venues East Devon

Cadhay is a very special wedding venue. It especially suits those who are looking for somewhere atmospheric and individual to extend their wedding celebrations over a longer period of time than just the single day. You occupy the entire property for a long weekend or a full week, allowing you to create lasting and unforgettable memories for your family and friends.

Licensed for civil ceremonies, Cadhay is a beautiful, historic and very special place to enjoy your once in a lifetime occasion. Most weddings take place at Cadhay between May and September, however, the estate is also ideal for a small winter wedding.
