Perched high on Haldon Hill above Exeter City and standing in 5 acres of woodland in the heart of the lovely Devonshire countryside. Only some 6 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter, the magical and popular wedding venue of Haldon Belvedere benefits from its vantage-point, panoramic views extending to Dartmoor, Exmoor, the South Hams, the River Exe valley and its estuary can be seen. On a really clear day, the Isles of Purbeck and Portland Bill in Dorset are visible and some say even Wales.
Haldon Belvedere, also known as Lawrence Castle, is a Grade II* listed triangular tower, originally built in 1788 by Sir Robert Palk as the centre piece to his vast estates and dedicated to the memory of Major-General Stringer Lawrence the founder of the Indian army.
This ia an excellent Devon venue for smaller and intimate weddings with seating for 50 guests in the firstfloor ballroom. The grounds offer so many possibilities for breathtaking photographs. With the ruins and bridges particularly good spots. The view up the drive towards the tower offers a picturesque view.
