Lakeside Weddings

We offer five beautiful wedding venues across Devon, Cornwall and West Somerset. Celebrate the biggest day of your lives surrounded by the natural beauty of the countryside, with the magnificent views and romantic scenery you will be spoilt for choice.

Lakeside, Roadford Lake – Stunning views and romantic woodland walks

Nestled in Devon’s rolling hills on the edge of Dartmoor, this 740 acre lake is a unique location for your special day. With its convenient location, just off the A30 near the Cornwall/ Devon border, ample parking and two reception rooms, it offers a flexible approach to your day whether you want a small, simple celebration or a large gathering. Our dedicated and experienced team will ensure that your day is exactly how you dreamed it to be, allowing you to relax and enjoy this special time with friends and family.

Create Memories

At Lakeside, you can enjoy the use of our rooms overlooking the water with an outdoor covered terrace, so that your guests can spill outside to enjoy a chilled glass of wine from the bar, or an evening Hog Roast. Children will love the outdoor play area, making it easy for families to relax and enjoy the day together.

Lakeside is licensed to hold marriages and civil partnerships so you have the option of keeping everything under one roof! Once the formal celebrations are over, you and your guests can take advantage of the space available including the terrace and grass amphitheatre, both with the lake as the backdrop. A short walk away is the striking 6m stainless steel Sundial created for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and now the perfect spot for that unique photo to remember your day.

In the evening, dance to your disco, live band or tailor your night’s entertainment to suit you – the wedding team can help with ideas and contacts.

Our Rooms

We have two unique rooms named after our reservoirs – Burrator and Fernworthy. Both are licensed for marriage and civil ceremonies.

Burrator Room
Burrator seats up to 120 guests for your wedding breakfast and can accommodate up to 150 guests for the evening party. Outside, Burrator leads on to the covered terrace with uninterrupted views over the lake – perfect for a sundowner. With a bar serving this room, this combination gives you plenty of room to enjoy your special day all in one lovely location.

Fernworthy Room
This unique room is hexagonal with a vaulted ceiling, perfect for your wedding ceremony. It can be used later for a quiet space to sit and reflect or for entertainment.

Our Other Venues

South West Lakes Trust manages over 40 inland waters from West Cornwall to West Somerset. If you’re looking to tie the knot in a more informal outdoor setting then we’d be delighted to speak with you about our other sites, including Wimbleball Lake on Exmoor, Burrator and Fernworthy Reservoirs on Dartmoor or Stithians Lake in Cornwall.
