The perfect country house wedding venue – Huntsham Court
Activities at Huntsham Court
From the moment we arrived at Huntsham Court our itinerary was packed full of fun activities to keep us occupied. From cookery classes at the nearby River Cottage HQ, quad biking, archery, beauty treatments and massages to simply enjoying an indulgent afternoon tea in the library. One of my favourite pastimes here was taking an early morning hike through the beautiful surrounding Devonshire countryside. Welcome to River Cottage HQ A short drive from the house is the famous River Cottage HQ where TV chef Hugh Fearnly Whittingstall has set up his sustainable, ethical, organic cooking school, gardens and restaurant. We were invited to partake in the Xmas Canapé Masterclass to help us brush up on our seasonal cookery skills.
Newly acquired cookery skills! Homemade beetroot humous and sesame breadsticks.
The cookery class was followed by a delicious al fresco 3 course meal served in the picturesque gardens
Landrover Experience The ultimate pastime for adrenaline junkies and car lovers. We got taken for a ride by the Landrover Experience team. These luxury state of the art 4×4’s are yours for the afternoon and you can take them for a spin around the local rugged terrain. So much fun! The quintessentially British country house experience
Hone your cross bow skills with a morning of archery on the lawns with Birds Hill Days. Alternatively you can try your hand at pistol shooting, clay shooting or fencing. Afternoon tea is served in the library in pretty mismatched tea cups and saucers. There’s even gluten free cakes and biscuits, the perfect excuse to eat more :) Burns Night Supper
As we were there over Burns Night, we were invited to a spectacular evening of dinner and dancing, Ceilidh style of course! Tartan was the dress code, so I wore my Dolce & Gabanna 50’s style dress for the occasion. Drinks and dancing ensued! Too much fun was had by all! The rest of the evenings shots were not deemed suitable for public consumption! :) And so to bed…Bye Bye beautiful Huntsham Court, until next time!
