Marquees are so last year darling!  Why book a tent when East Devon’s Deer Park Country House Hotel is just putting the finishing touches on its impressive and extremely elegant new Georgian Orangery?  


Set in 80 acres of magnificent grounds in the rolling Devon countryside, this stunning four-star boutique hotel can now accommodate up to 170 guests in the new Orangery, ideal for all occasions from weddings and corporate events to all other hospitality.  It is guaranteed to create an impact and wow all attending guests with its floor to ceiling palatial arched windows and decadent chandeliers, not forgetting the distinctive mosaic flooring and dapper decor throughout. 


Officially launched on April 15th with a fabulous party sponsored by Bollinger to mark the occasion, the Deer Park has already taken numerous bookings for the year ahead for the new Orangery.  Commenting on this exciting opening, managing director Mark Godfrey says: “Over the past few years there has been great investment in the hotel, but this really is the icing on the cake.  We always planned to create something spectacular for wedding and event use, but this has exceeded all expectations.”  Mark continues: “Not only has huge amounts of time, love and care been invested into the Orangery, the bedrooms in the main house have also been newly decorated. These are fresh and modern with a few quirky accents and an eclectic range of grand furniture.  It doesn’t end there, we recently built a luxury treehouse, a first of its kind in Devon.”


For a fairytale exclusive wedding, the Deer Park Country House Hotel ticks all the boxes.  Wonderful whatever the season, brides and grooms can tie the knot in the secluded secret garden surrounded by wild flowers, or inside the stunning country house followed by a delicious wedding breakfast and dancing in the new Orangery.  As the night comes to a close, the newlyweds can say a fond farewell to all their loved ones and spend their first night of wedded bliss in the luxurious treehouse.  Available for exclusive use, the Deer Park is a magical venue and prides itself on pulling out all the stops for a memorable and romantic day, tailored to the exact requirements of the bride and groom. It is no wonder why the Deer Park Country Hotel is now one of the most popular wedding venues in the South West of England.


Corporate VIPs will be particularly impressed with the stunning new three-bedroom CEO House accommodation, set apart from the main house.  After a splendid day of team building activities, followed by a mouth-watering dinner in the Deer Park’s award-winning two-star restaurant, Loxton’s, executives may relax in this luxurious open plan accommodation with incredible views of the countryside.  New activities on offer this year, include an array of Devon country pursuits from segways and hovercrafts to paint balling and laser games in the woods.  Also available as a state of the art, high tech conference suite, the Orangery may accommodate 220 delegates theatre style, most definitely the most inspirational and grand conference venue in the area.


High quality and locally sourced ingredients are of the utmost importance to the Deer Park Country House Hotel which is why a new two acre walled kitchen garden and vineyard are also launching this year.  With a passionate gardening team including their very own community gardeners, the Deer Park’s kitchen garden already produce a huge volume of fruit, vegetables and herbs from squashes, heritage tomatoes and potatoes to beans and apples straight into the hands of their chefs. They even produce their own delicious honey and apple juice, you can’t get fresher than that!  They will now be able to take this to a new level, with an extended garden growing even more varieties of fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs to satisfy every palate, plus a vineyard which will in time produce their very own wine to serve to their guests.  There is no compromise on food at the Deer Park, no matter how many guests are being served.


The Deer Park Country House Hotel is available to book for exclusive use for all corporate and private events and weddings.  For further information on the Deer Park Country House Hotel please visit, email [email protected] or call 01404 41266.
