Country Ways, Devon Wedding Venue Showcase

Country Ways, Little Knowle Farm, Umberleigh, Devon, EX37 9BJ

Country Ways is a gorgeous wedding venue nestled close to the coastal area of North Devon. This lovely wedding venue is where I spent the day as the Cornish wedding photographer of Mr and Mrs Linwood. I love to share wonderful wedding venues that I get to experience, and this was no exception. 

Are you looking for a charming farm wedding venue with breathtaking views, gardens, modern cottages, and the best amenities? Then you should consider Country Ways as your venue of choice. Here’s a look at what this venue offers couples and pictures of my special time there, capturing Mr and Mrs Linwood alongside their loved ones.

Your Wedding at Country Ways

Country Ways offer couples a choice between indoor and outdoor wedding venues for their celebration. Accommodation is available for up to 30+ guests onsite, so you can turn your wedding into a fun getaway for your whole wedding party. 

This venue has a unique barn space for your wedding to host up to 70 guests. You can also put a marquee on one of the two lawns, which increases the capacity to 120 guests. 

Here are some benefits you get for your wedding at Country Ways.

Wedding Ceremony and Receptions at Country Ways

The licensed wedding ceremony venue at Country Ways is the Corn Barn. This barn wedding venue is perfect for a country or boho-chic wedding celebration. It comes as part of the wedding package with access to the lovely cottages at this wedding venue. However, you can hire just the Corn Barn, at which point charges are applied per head.

Country Ways also offers couples an opportunity to have an outdoor wedding with unbeatable views. This location is called the Cedar and is perfect for couples who want an outdoor wedding celebration. 


Country Ways offer couples accommodation onsite, the use of fully equipped kitchens and even hired helpers to make your wedding a success.


There are six self-serving cottages with modern facilities at Country Ways. It comes as part of the package and is available to the couple and their loved ones. One of these is fully wheelchair friendly! This cottage is also accessible by a wheelchair ramp directly from the car park. 

Of the six cottages, couples can choose to stay at The Den. It can host 2- 4 people. The Dray is another cottage for couples but is not dog-friendly. Staying at Country Ways also comes with free wifi, a games room, private hot tubs at two cottages and even a sauna. You’ll also love that dogs are allowed at all the cottages at the venue except The Dray. It’s perfect for families, pets and the ultimate relaxing getaway.

Décor for Hire

Country Ways offer couples lots of décors that they can hire for their wedding. Although you are welcome to choose your own supplier, the venue can help organise gazebos, barbecues, fire pits, garden games and more to make your wedding fun and exciting. The Highland Bar is a paying bar that couples can use for their wedding here, too. This wedding venue also provides helpers to make your day memorable.

Wedding Day Photos

As a Cornish wedding photographer, I also look out for beautiful spaces for photos at wedding venues. Country Ways offer mesmerising grounds with fantastic views. As a wedding photographer, it’s my job to scout the best locations for photographs and offer my couples as many opportunities for photos as they want. We did a full tour of the grounds and truly made the most of what Country Ways has to offer.

Total Exclusivity

Country Ways offer couples and their loved ones total exclusivity for their celebration. They host only one wedding per time, and payment for the venue comes with the cottages and all the facilities. This wedding venue is also flexible and can accommodate your needs. All you have to do is talk to them. 

Meet The Animals

Country Ways has a small selection of animals on their farm, which can make your experience even more unique. They include cows, ducks, lambs, pigs and a horse named Major. A meet and greet can be arranged as part of your unique wedding experience.
