Your wedding, your way

Escot House is an idyllic wedding venue; impressive, steeped in history and with that certain touch of class. What makes us different is our relaxed attitude. You will love having all the splendour with none of the fuss. Our rooms are generously proportioned, light and friendly – there’s simply nothing stuffy about Escot.

Let the rumpus begin!

What could be more fun than a big family gathering, getting the whole crowd together to celebrate something special? At Escot House we’ll help you celebrate in style, whatever the occasion.

Away from the office

Set in 250 acres of tranquil parkland, Escot House is the perfect location for conferences, training seminars and other corporate events. Easily accessed from the A30 and only a short drive from Exeter and the M5, the venue offers superb facilities, plentiful free parking and delicious in-house catering.

Team building time

Most businesses understand the need to get out of the office from time to time and do something a little different. Set in the heart of the East Devon countryside, Escot House and Estate is an ideal location, from the impressive Georgian house to the many activities available on site.

Remembering loved ones

Getting together at what is always a very sad time does not necessarily mean an unhappy occasion. Remembering a loved one can be a time of reminiscing and laughter – a celebration of a life lived.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for ensuring our daughter’s wedding day was such a wonderful occasion. Despite the appalling weather conditions (a heavy snowfall) the whole day went so smoothly. Your air of calmness was very reassuring and much appreciated. The staff were efficient and friendly. Everyone was very well looked after and the gluten & dairy free lad’s mum wrote to thank us for looking after him so well, so thank you for that as well. The change of menu went really well and suited the cold conditions much better than the original choices. Several people said they had never had such a lovely Bakewell. The fires were a big hit too. So please pass on our thanks to all who helped make the day so special for Pippa and Ed.
