Wedding Receptions in the Romantic Devon Countryside

High Bickington Community Centre is a countryside venue in North Devon available to hire for Wedding Receptions. You can opt to hire the whole venue to ensure exclusive use for your wedding party or to hire a single hall or function room. The Community Centre is set in large grounds with beautiful views across Devon, Exmoor, Bodmin and Dartmoor which could also provide the perfect location for your outdoor or marquee wedding.

Our Main Hall is our most popular space for holding Wedding Receptions. It has a wooden sprung floor for you and your guests to dance the night away in style, a portable stage for bands and DJs, as well as a hatch through to the kitchen which provides easy access for caterers. The main hall can comfortably sit between 120 and 200 wedding guests, depending on the layout of tables and chairs.

Our tranquil location make for a picturesque rural venue for your wedding. Even though we’re only 10 miles from Barnstaple and 30 miles from Exeter, you’ll really feel like you’ve escaped to a country idyll for your special day.
