BEAFORD COUNTRY HOUSE is a grand, south facing gentleman’s residence, set in 30 acres of gardens and grounds, atop the River Torridge Valley, with breathtaking views towards Dartmoor. Over the years the house has been host to many of the Great Train Robbers, both before and after the robbery! Some were even arrested at the house, notes being stashed up some of the bedroom fireplaces.
No matter what the weather BEAFORD COUNTRY HOUSE has so much to offer. When the sun is shining you won't want to leave, the fantastic swimming pool and beautiful gardens will occupy you for hours. When the weather gets cooler, snuggle up by the log fires with a hot chocolate or glass of mulled wine or why not wander out into the garden for a snowball fight or a spot of sledging!!
BEAFORD COUNTRY HOUSE is the ideal wedding venue set in its own mature gardens providing a lovely backdrop for wedding photographs. The venue is licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies, and there is a large ballroom, the perfect place for a wedding reception. The surrounding grounds make a perfect backdrop for photographs, drinks and canapes, and there is parking for a 25+ cars.
Perfect for conversation, gatherings and relaxation is the large comfortable drawing room. Featuring a large wood-panelled fireplace, it has one wall of floor-to-ceiling French doors, comfy sofas, occasional chairs and tables.

With high ceilings, unique antiques, and opulent decor, this is a dining room full of character!
