Wedding Stay
Arrived day before wedding with our Labrador for 3 nights. The accommodation was spotless and had everything we needed. Including Alexa, Ipad with complete instructions for our stay, welcome cake and freshly cooked bread.
The grounds were lovely and ample to stretch our dog's legs plus there was a doggy kit too; towel, treats, ball and flinger!
Maddy was our wedding coordinator and was always on hand, she was there before we even knew we needed her but was wasn't around too much. The wedding day ran like clockwork. We also used the bbq hut and had a fine dining experience in the summer house.

Amazing in every way
Every last detail was thought of. Rose cottage is stunning. A real home away from home. Quaint. Beautiful. But with all the mod cons needed. A cake waiting for you when you arrive and fresh bread in the bread maker. The little
Touches that go the furthest. The bath. Hot tub. Bed. Everything. Perfection.

We will definitely be back !

Definitely Heaven in Devon!!
Beautiful place. Beyond our expectations. Such thought and detail put into everything. High quality furnishings in the accommodation and such attention to detail. All staff we came across were so friendly and welcoming. The views and the grounds are stunning. We were blessed with wonderful weather. We were married outside the summer house and all ran so smoothly. thanks to Maddy our wedding coordinator. We did not want to leave but will cherish our memories. Would highly recommend.

Wedding in heaven!
The staff at Millbrook went above and beyond. I’m sure all their guests receive the same high quality treatment but they make it personal too! The accommodation is of the highest quality with everything you need. Our elopement wedding was perfect and so much more than our expectations. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an intimate venue in a truly amazing setting!

5 Stars!
From the first phone call until the end of our stay you were all brilliant. We immediately felt at ease and knew we were in great hands. Maddy was brilliant telling me all the bits and pieces I needed to sort out and Amanda was wonderfully calming and organised the best day for us! All the little bits and pieces along the way were magic. You all made the whole process the most stress free experience. We’d do it again in a heart beat! X x

Perfect location - wonderful people
We recently booked Millbrook for our elopement wedding and stayed four days in a cottage on site with our dog. The whole thing could not have been more perfect - the place is amazing, the people made us feel super special from the start and our wedding was everything we’d hoped for and more. The cottage was beautiful and came with all the mod cons as well as a few lovely little touches (like freshly baked bread…), the estate is fabulous and we could have walked around happily for hours. A perfect back drop for a wedding - our photos prove that - but also a great place for a private get away. Can’t wait to get back at some point.

Absolutely Outstanding
Our whole experience at Millbrook was amazing. It is an absolutely beautiful estate which provided an amazing location for our dream wedding. We even got to feed the alpacas on the day which was so much fun! Lakeview is a lovely accommodation and would 100% recommend to anyone. Thanks to the entire Millbrook team for an amazing stay and wedding! We will be back for many anniversaries to come!

Thank you for another brilliant week
Thank you so much for another fabulous week in the Wheel Room. This was our 10 visit & 9 years since we were married at Millbrook. We find it just so peaceful and relaxing & really appreciate all the little improvements you keep making. You clearly have an effective and motivated team who are always so happy & helpful.
Thank you once again and we’re really looking forward to see you all again next year.
