My Husband and I got married at Country Ways in June this year and it was without a doubt the most beautiful Wedding we could have dreamed of. The owner Sue along with her family were just so friendly and welcoming from our first viewing up until even today where I... More

We got married at Country Ways around a fortnight ago having hired the whole complex over a weekend. The wedding was a small one and we only had around 35 guests staying but being able to have everyone stay on site in the cottage was fantastic. The corn-barn is a registered venue so if you like, you can do everything... More

Visited for the first time whilst working an outside bar and catering for a wedding held here. I had a good look around and was amazed with how compact and intimate the location was. Beautiful scenery, the view was outstanding. Room for camping too and a decent marquee. Everything you would possibly need is available to you. I wouldn't hesitate... More

Attended a wedding of friends here on Friday 18th July 2014, then stayed on site and continued with a BBQ the following day / night. What a great wedding in fantastic surroundings with views to die for. Lovely accommodation and excellent location for walks, or drive to beaches west of Barnstaple. Did not want to come home!

I had my wedding at Country Ways weekend before last and my husband and I made the excellent decision of staying a week before the festivities to give us time to plan the finer details with close friends/family. You are surrounded by beautiful countryside and in all honesty I could have very happily spent the whole week at country ways... More

We had our wedding at Country Ways and it was brilliant. It was so relaxed and fantastic to be able to have everyone together for the whole weekend. It's perfect if you have lots of children coming to your wedding as there is so much to keep them entertained. Sue and the other staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating... More

We have just spent a week at Country Ways, with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson along with other family members and friends, culminating in a very memorable wedding ceremony and celebrations. The farm offers excellent, flexible accommodation in 6 cottages, all with most mod cons. Barnstaple and Bideford are close enough to drive to for replenishment of supplies and there... More

We had a handfasting at Country ways in May. The ability to book the whole complex of cottages & turn our wedding into a whole weekend was marvellous. Not only were the owners really accommodating in helping us with the wedding, but throughout the weekend showing the kids around the farm & teaching them about the animals. "wow, I could... More
