Special Occasions & Private Parties
Bridwell is the most stunning location in which to celebrate special occasions or to create the best party ever!
The house and parkland are available for your exclusive use, and whether your guests number 10 or 200 (or even more in a marquee), the Bridwell team are armed with exciting ideas and will assist you in every way to make your occasion truly special and memorable for years to come.
Weekend House Parties
Despite the grandeur of its appearance, the house retains an intimate atmosphere and is very much a family home in which you can put your feet up and enjoy good company and good food in total relaxation.
You may wish to gather for cocktails in the drawing room or conservatory before dinner is served in the elegant dining room with its large windows overlooking the parkland. Or, for a relaxed, chilled weekend with friends you may prefer to cook your own meals in the large farmhouse kitchen and gather around to eat informally in the adjoining conservatory.
Whether you wish to self cater or to be waited on hand and foot, the choice is yours!
Bridwell is ideally located within easy reach of some of Devon’s most prestigious shoots. The house is the ideal size for a shooting party of 10 guns and their partners. It provides secure gun storage and kennelling.
The Bridwell team will be pleased to help arrange alternative activities for non-shooting guests during the day.
Larger parties and events
Bridwell can also accomodate larger events, indoors and outdoors. In the parkland we can accommodate outdoor concerts, competition and games, food festivals, and much more. Our indoor spaces can be used in combination with one another or with the parkland.
There's so much flexibility...
The house has five principal ground floor rooms available: the drawing room, dining room, library, morning room and conservatory and cinema room.
This large, airy and versatile space of approximately 1,765 sq ft is fully serviced, with facilities including a built in music system, stage area, bar, catering kitchens and cloakrooms..
The Chapel, with an approximate internal area of 620 sq ft, creates a most impressive and unusual venue, either stand alone or in combination with events in the parkland.
The Park & Gardens
Outdoors we have multiple gardens around the house itself and Park covers 100 acres of rolling devon parkland.
