Our Millbrook Team

Millbrook Estate Elopement Weddings


Millbrook is a beautiful 32-acre Estate located in a north Devon valley. Millbrook offers four luxury holiday cottages and runaway weddings in our summer house, and it is also the home of Kate, Bob and our daughter Iszi and son Louie. We moved into Millbrook in 2005, but when we viewed Millbrook in the Summer of 2004, we fell in love with the estate. It was also a challenge as Millbrook did need a considerable amount of TLC. We deliberately decided that the revenues we generated from the cottages would be reinvested back into the cottages and estate. We still have this philosophy today, enabling us to achieve our vision for Millbrook and the beautiful estate and accommodation it is. In July 2016, we opened our Intimate Wedding Venue Tree Top Escape, a luxurious hideaway in the treetops offering luxury accommodation for up to 4 guests and intimate weddings with up to 14 guests.


Millbrook is privileged to have an incredible team of staff. Megan and Justine act are our wedding coordinators, while Bob, alongside them, will be your go-to person for booking your special event and guiding you. Kate will be available to assist you over the phone with managing accommodation and marketing.

Furthermore, you'll have the pleasure of meeting Dave, the groundsman; Jenny, the gardener; and Ness, the housekeeper, during your time at Millbrook.

Since 2005, Millbrook Cottages has competed in the Tourism Awards 6 times, earning GOLD each time. We are proud to have been awarded Self-catering of the Year in the whole South West of England in March 2023, which would not have been possible without the hard work of our incredible team and the continued patronage of our wonderful guests.

In 2021, we became the South West Wedding Awards Country Venue of the Year. Additionally, in 2019, we received Self-catering Accommodation of the Year for the entire South West, with Bronze for Dog-Friendly Business. In 2018, West Country Wedding Awards honoured us with Country Wedding Venue of the Year, and the Devon Tourism Awards bestowed Best Self-Catering and Dog-Friendly Business of the Year upon us. The year prior, Millbrook won a ROSE Award from Visit England for excellence in customer service and achieved Gold in Devon and Silver in the Southwest for Environmental Responsibility, as well as the DEBI Award for Eco-Tourism. To top it off, our successes have been nationally recognised through two Silver awards at the Visit England Awards in 2011 and 2015.

Moreover, we are thrilled to have received two dog-friendly awards in November 2023 (Devon Dog Friendly Business of the Year) and March 2024 (South West Dog Friendly Business of the Year), along with the Platinum Trusted and Exception Feefo Award for 2024.
