Huntsham Court is reputed to be the largest exclusive use private hire country house rental in England and the South West (33,000 sq ft), yet still feels intimate enough to host a smaller exclusive use private event. It is not a public country house hotel, instead it operates as private country house hire, available only on an exclusive use hire basis, with a discrete and personable house team, providing tailored flexibility and elegant service as required by each of our unique lead guests. Quality. Privacy. Luxury.


Suitable for 10-120 people. Our private hire country house though is neither stuffy nor stiff – each of our 6/7 reception & meeting rooms ooze with style and traditional luxury but with a twist. They are all furnished to be flexible meeting rooms with our furniture porters being available to elegnatly move furniture around or clear rooms as and when you require them. Lounges can be cleared or become dining rooms or set up theatre style at you want. For your exclusive use stay – it’s your private hire country house so it’s your rules as to where things need to be and how things need to be done… whatever time of day. Please see our facilities tab for specific details.

The house is designed for sharing time together family style rather than like hotels where each bedroom has a mini bar and TV. So whilst the bedrooms are luxurious, they do not have TVs or teamaids, instead we have a shared Butler’s Pantry to encourage people to spend time together informally and TVs can be taken away or put in the bar and Den as you require. Luxury welcome room trays can be arranged if your require them.


We have 5 acres of mature private gardens with lawns, terraces, ancient trees and seasonal flower beds. We also have a tennis court, croquet lawn and 5-a-side area and plenty of space to relax or set up outdoor activities. The grounds are surrounded by 360 degree panoramic views of Devon’s rolling countryside.
