Shilstone and its estate is a cherished family home, and since purchasing the property in 1997, the Fenwick family have lovingly restored not only the Georgian Manor House, but much of the surrounding buildings and estate. Set in several hundred acres of breath taking rural countryside. Shilstone is the perfect place to have lunch, visit our archive or celebrate your wedding.


Shilstone House is an elegant and exclusive wedding venue located in the heart of the Devon countryside. This beautiful Georgian Manor House has been carefully restored by the Fenwick family and offers a stunning setting for your special day. Since our first wedding in 2012, Shilstone is now one of Devon’s top wedding venues. The house itself has won numerous awards including Country Life Magazines ‘Restoration of the Century’ award and The Georgian Groups ‘New Building in the Classical Tradition’ award.
