We would like to say a huge thank you to Julie and her team for our special wedding day in September. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and commented on the quality and taste of the food. The atmosphere at the Horn of Plenty was relaxed and the view over the Tamer Valley was gorgeous. Julie and her team went out of their way to ensure that we had a beautiful day, and the attention to detail was exceptional. The food was stunning, it was a warm sunny day and the venue was just perfect. We will be out to visit again soon for afternoon tea. Thanks again

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for our wedding last Monday. I really appreciate all the work that you put in, it definitely helped me stress a bit less about organising things.
I honestly can’t thank you enough for making the day run smoothly and making it amazing. I also wanted to say a big thank you to the rest of the wedding team and staff that were there on the day, they were all amazing and the food was delicious as always.
Luke and I really appreciate everything you did and will definitely be back at some point.

Most wonderful experience
The breathtaking views over the valley and gorgeous venue and beautiful gardens won us over immediately. From the moment we booked, a year before, to the special day the wedding team were in close contact and always quick to reply to emails or phone calls. The day itself was amazing. I can’t believe how smoothly it all went and how relaxed I felt. I think this was because everything was very organised leading up to the day. All the recommended services (florist/cake/cheese shop) were incredible and the food was delicious on the day.
Thank you to Shirna and the wedding team for making the day so special for us. I wish we could do it all again!

Dream come true
The whole experience was everything we’d dreamed of. We don’t have a bad word to say. We had a perfect day! All of our guests loved it. Beautiful location, really special food and the wedding team were always happy to help. They even catered for a few requests we had even though it wasn’t what they’d usually do. Shirna deserves a special mention for all her help. Thank you all at The Horn Of Plenty

fabulous venue
We had the most wonderful wedding, just the perfect day, and this was in very large part down to the fabulous venue we had and your amazing team taking such good care of us - everything was just magical and we can't thank you all enough.

The whole team was just brilliant, our heartfelt thanks to everyone, but especially big thanks to Shirna for being an absolute superstar all day long and managing my never ending random requests so efficiently. Everything ran so smoothly and all of our guests adored the hotel, especially those lucky enough to stay overnight, we had many compliments.

The Horn of Plenty is an absolute gem nestled in the very heart of Dartmoor; the most beautiful country house hotel in the most beautiful setting, the grounds are just stunning, the views across the moors breathtaking, and the rooms are exquisitely furnished and luxurious. And the food! I'll run out of adjectives for the food; it is truly special. But what sets this hotel apart is surely its staff - the service is second to none, and they cannot do enough to make your stay as perfect as possible. Without doubt the best decision we ever made was booking our wedding here - the venue absolutely made the wedding, and the staff absolutely made sure it was perfect, they could not have done more. From the outset the owner Julie was so warm, friendly, helpful and supportive. We loved every meeting and every visit we had. Shirna the wedding planner was also fantastic, forever on hand to answer my myriad questions and super efficient at sorting out the logistics for us. We adored meeting the head chef Ashley to create our bespoke wedding menu - truly a highlight of the whole experience, and this surely makes the Horn of Plenty a must for any foodies getting married! Ashley listened to us to find out our favourite foods and then created unique dishes for the day to incorporate these, just so special, and the food was outstanding on the day too - we were drowning in compliments. Our guests adored staying at the hotel, and the staff could not have been more accommodating for each and every one. Especial thanks to Shirna for her lovely, kind and super patient care of me on the big day, and for ensuring all of our requests were met, so speedily and seamlessly, so that everything happened just as we dreamt it would. The staff were fantastic all day and all night, and so tolerant of us! We had the most wonderful wedding and I can't recommend the Horn of Plenty enough - I just wish we could do it all again
