Cranberries Hideaway, Devon

Cranberries Hideaway in Axminster is perfectly situated in breathtaking surroundings. You can tie the knot in the dedicated wedding pagoda for a beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the sea and surrounding countryside or in the first floor room overlooking the coastline. Both spaces enjoy the stunning scenery and the team can offer full exclusive use of Cranberries Hideaway for accommodation and site over an entire weekend of celebrations. The setting is high on a hill, with spectacular views of the picturesque Axe Valley and the famous Jurassic Coast, giving you the best of both worlds; a rustic country wedding with a sea view. The best thing about the venue is that it’s dog friendly. You can have your best pal at your wedding and not worry about finding a dog sitter or leaving them at home. The accommodation is dog friendly too. If you are seeking a unique wedding venue in Devon or a rustic country barn wedding to celebrate your perfect day, Cranberries can offer both and the team are dedicated to helping you plan every detail of your special day.

H-Coo at The Grange, North Somerset

The Cider Orchard at The Grange, Hewish, is the perfect spot for wedding receptions and blessings. It’s a flexible venue and the team enjoy helping with the planning and styling or you are welcome to do this all yourselves. There is plenty of space for a marquee with a range of styles and sizes to choose from. Its relaxed setting is a big attraction and there is the space for games, camping or glamping. A pet-friendly venue, your beloved family pet doesn't have to feel excluded from the celebrations. The team have seen dogs as ring bearers during the outdoor blessings for that personal touch, and even an older dog who was hard of hearing snuggled up next to her human mum for the night in one of the venue's bell tents. Both pets and children are welcome to enjoy the space.

Birtsmorton Court, Worcestershire

At Birtsmorton Court there’s nothing the team love more than the addition of an animal at a wedding. They've seen owls fly the rings down the aisle, a birds of prey flying display, a petting zoo and a shetland pony and an alpaca dressed as a unicorns all in the last year alone. The venue is also extremely dog friendly as the team know that for most couples who own dogs they would rather have their dog present on the day than half of their friends and family. Birtsmorton Court regularly has dogs attending the ceremony and posing for photos with their newly married human parents. The venue even has an office dog called Chip, who would be more than happy to bring joy to your wedding day with only payment in tummy rubs required. You can follow Chip on Instagram @chiptheweddingdog to see Birtsmorton Court from a dog’s eye view.

Athelhampton House & Gardens, Dorset

One of England's finest Tudor manor houses, Athelhampton offers completely private use for wedding ceremonies and receptions throughout the year. Perfectly poised to accommodate couples' pets such as Rebecca Garson and Steve Roper's beloved dachshund, Dusty, Athelhampton offers the ideal setting for an extra special wedding. On a fine day, the ceremony is followed by photographs in the stunning gardens. Twelve acres of formal areas, with amazing planting and structures, lead through to more informal areas with the River Piddle flowing under two photogenic bridges. In poor weather or in the winter, guests are accommodated inside the historic home, which features stunning panelled candelit rooms and a roaring log fire.
