Family owned and run, Froginwell has undergone a series of improvements over its years as a wedding venue, which has culminated in a stunning space.

By day, the traditionally restored 1903 Traction Engine has provided the unique backdrop for many wedding ceremonies, and then by night, is transformed into the heart of the party – complete with glitterball!

Following the ceremony, guests are encouraged to spill out onto the oak framed decked terrace and beautifully maintained lawns, where any children (and adults if they wish!) can run free in a safe and protected environment. This is a perfect moment for the bride and groom to make the most of Froginwell, and explore the grounds, vineyard, and orchard for some exceptional photo opportunities… It’s not uncommon to see a bride in wellies, wading through the long hay fields.

When it’s time to eat, guests make their way through to the oak beamed reception area which is filled with natural light. With plenty of space to seat 120, the bride and groom can clearly keep an eye on everyone in their party!

The centrally located, fully licensed, American style bar plays an important role as day turns to night. It helps to create a perfect flow between dancing and mingling, with the option to increase numbers to 200 in the evening.

As dusk draws in the festoon lighting on the decking compliments the wysteria and vines to create a mediterranean feel on a balmy summers evening. Whilst inside the lights are dimmed allowing the draped fairy lights to twinkle.

Froginwell is ideally located within easy distance of the M5 J30, the A30, and Exeter airport. There are many accommodation options close by –  for further details, please get in touch.

We will do whatever we can to ensure that each couple get the day they have dreamed of. For further information, or if you would like to book an appointment to view Froginwell, please get in touch!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you have set suppliers who you work with?

    In short, no we don’t. We can recommend lots of lovely local businesses who we have worked with in the past, but we feel that it is important for the bride & groom to have the flexibility to work with who they like. That said, feel free to get in touch if you’d like any recommendations. We have a fantastic list covering everything from caterers, hire companies and florists to djs and bands.

  • How does the hire for a wedding at Froginwell work?

    We say that you have from 10 – 3pm the day before your wedding day to set up Froginwell and put your stamp on it. It’s then yours for the entire day of the wedding, with the bar closing at midnight. Then the morning of the following day, (or another day if prearranged) your belongings are collected. The staff will have packed this all up after you and your guests have left, so all you have to do is load it into the car and go off and enjoy your first day of married life!

  • On the day of our wedding, what time do we have to leave?

    Due to the nature of our license, amplified music is to stop at 11pm. Quiet background music can be played in the bar area until 12pm, which is when the bar closes.
    We tend to find that the hour between the music ending and the bar closing is when guests start to disperse – most are ready for bed by then!
    Typically by 12 / 12.30 everyone has headed out the door either off home, or into tents in the adjacent field.

  • Can we get married at Froginwell?

    Yes you can! We’re fully licensed for a civil ceremony. We have a couple of options for holding the ceremony with us, which we can discuss when you come to have a look around. 🙂

    It’s getting more and more popular to use Froginwell for both the ceremony and reception, but it’s not uncommon to hire Froginwell as the reception venue only.

  • Do you have different prices for peak and off peak seasons?

    No we don’t. We just have the one price, regardless of time of year, day of the week, number of guests etc. This is for one simple reason – for us it is the same amount of work, regardless of whether it is summer or winter, a Wednesday or Saturday. Get in touch for more information, including price and what this includes.
