About Us

Rockbeare Manor is part of a story, of a committed team with a love of creating unforgettable moments, exceptional events and not settling for second best. It's about building something that we are proud of, but importantly something which our guests will be amazed by. All this is based on a foundation of honesty, transparency and trust - and following through with any promises made.

Event Manager at Rockbeare Manor

Achieving this is in no small way down to the dedicated team that we are lucky enough to work with. From the talented group of craftsmen and decorators that meticulously refurbished the house, to our imaginative kitchen team, enthusiastic housekeepers and groundsman, and of course the events team, all of whom work attentively to ensure that there is always a warm welcome to all who come to Rockbeare Manor.

Our breath still gets taken away when we drive up the long, meandering driveway to what is a true Regency Manor - it's almost like being taken back in time and finding yourself in a Jane Austen novel.

Rockbeare Manor wedding venue in Devon

Having been a cherished family home since the 18th Century Rockbeare Manor found itself on the Historic England At Risk Register and was in urgent need of repair and renovation.  After a long period of time on the market, and with an uncertain future, Rockbeare Manor was acquired in 2015 by Andrew Carveth of PM Hospitality Ltd - an events business with proven track record and expertise in this field. The extensive restoration and sensitive renovations commenced in September 2015 and within nine months the events and wedding venue was pristine, and ready to welcome its first guests.

Inside Rockbeare Manor

The exterior and interior of the house has been refurbished from top to bottom, to an impeccable standard - it's a grand Country House events and wedding venue with a contemporary colour pallet and sumptuous furnishings, but importantly, a welcoming and relaxed feel. The neutral schemes mean that any event colour choice will work alongside the tasteful un-cluttered look.

Wedding venue in Exeter, Rockbeare Manor

Rockbeare Manor is the third stunning venue in a collection that is operated by our highly dedicated and experienced team at PM Hospitality. In 2006, Andrew Carveth set up the business to manage the catering at a countryside venue called Priston Mill, near Bath. In 2009 Coombe Lodge, an impressive Jacobean house near Bristol, designed by the distinguished architect Sir George Oatley was added. Both of these venues continue to host many weddings and events and are well known, and highly regarded in the North Somerset area.

We have a strong and experienced team at Rockbeare Manor in Exeter who would be delighted to meet you and hear about any plans that you may have for a wedding or event.
