A Georgian manor house set in 80 acres of East Devon countryside, Deer Park Country House in Honiton is a wedding venue that goes from strength to strength. 

On 4th November 2019, Deer Park Country House was revealed as the winner in the 'Best for Weddings, Parties or Special Occasions' category at the 37th annual edition of the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence. 

Criteria assessed by the judges included responses from online voting, guest feedback and Local Expert reports drawn from hotels featured on Condé Nast Johansens' website and most recent guides. 

Managing director of Deer Park Country House, Mark Godfrey, says: “It is such a great accolade for us to win, we’re so delighted and so proud of the entire team. We look forward to continuing to lead the way at Deer Park; creating new experiences, welcoming new guests and of course hosting our regular clients’ events too. 

With a team who specialise in creating unforgettable one-off celebrations, championing an exacting attention to detail and holding a first-class customer service at the heart of what they do, it is clear to see why Deer Park Country House continues to reap the rewards. 

Highlights in and around the exclusive-use four-star venue include: elegant lounges, a vintage-inspired restaurant and the beautiful Orangery, which can accommodate up to 220 seated guests. Sweeping lawns are ideal for guests to explore, while the Italian Garden is a picture perfect spot for outdoor ceremonies.

The walled vegetable garden and al fresco Mediterranean kitchen emphasise the kitchen team's superior and sustainable approach to catering, led by head chef Hadleigh Barrett. 

Accommmodation includes 30 boutique bedrooms and the romantic thatched tree house, complete with log burner, roll-top bath and wrap-around balcony, is perfect for the happy couple to spend their first night of married life together.
