About

A stunning medieval barn hosting unique weddings and events in Devon. Windout Barn is at the heart of a working farm dating back to the 11th Century. Tucked away among the rolling hills of Dartmoor, the farm radiates history and rural charm, offering wedding parties a stunning blank canvas on which to plan their perfect day.

The Space

A beautifully restored cob and stone barn offering a historic simplicity that few venues can rival. The floorplan is split into two rooms, with an intimate bar area giving way to the multifunctional main space.

Seating up to 100 guests at trestle tables, the barn is a warm and inviting space in its own right, but really shines when used creatively. Filled with flowers… illuminated by candlelight… the possibilities are endless.

Outside, steps lead up to a lawned terrace offering spectacular views over the Teign Valley. This is a lovely spot for welcome drinks and canapés or to set up a marquee should you require additional covered space.

Available Dates

With a limited number of bookings available between April and October, Windout Barn is able to offer each group a rare level of exclusivity and personal service. This, combined with the barn’s effortless style and beautiful simplicity, make a Windout wedding or event something truly special.

(We would always consider an event that falls outside of our standard availability under special circumstances. Please do get in touch if you have an event you’d like to discuss).
