Just 25 minutes from Exeter is Lympston Manor, a historic Grade II-listed Georgian manor house that has been creatively transformed into a contemporary 21-bedroom country house hotel, restaurant and vineyard, producing English sparkling wine.
Situated on the banks of the River Exe Estuary in 28 acres of gardens, grounds and parkland, it is a perfect place to host VIP guests.
Book the Michael Caines Gourmet Experience for a unique experience of a wine tasting tutorial with one of the experienced and passionate Sommeliers in the wine room. Then have dinner in the Michelin-starred restaurant or in a private dining room.
For large groups of up to 450 guests, plan a dinner in Exeter Cathedral’s spectacular Nave.
Don’t forget to look up to see the beautiful stained glass windows and the longest stretch of unbroken Gothic vaulting in the world.
In addition to banqueting, the team at Exeter Cathedral can arrange private tours and musical performances so guests can experience the building’s history and grandeur.
Royal Albert Memorial Museum
Host drinks and canapés in the Courtyard Gallery at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM). The museum’s galleries provide the perfect location for any event, from large receptions for up to 500 guests to small memorable gatherings focused on a particular exhibition, or as a unique venue for a private dinner party. Every event is tailor-made around guests’ interests by adding on a private view or drinks reception followed by a Curator-led tour of a particular exhibition.
