Lympstone Village Hall –

on the Exe Estuary, East Devon

The Village Hall is the centre of village activities. It consists of a single storey complex containing three letting rooms: a Main hall, a Function room, and a Committee room, in addition to a licensed bar and kitchen. These can be hired individually or in various combinations.

Booking line: 01395 262640  NB: Our phone system will hunt for someone to help you. You may hear different ring tones – please don’t hang up!

The complex is used by a wide range of village organisations for social, educational, artistic, and entertainment purposes. It is also used by semi-commercial organisations for example for exercise and keep fit classes. Each year we host a number of wedding ceremonies and receptions and family parties and can advise on decoration and facilities to suit. The hall is the only village hall in Devon licensed as a wedding venue and gives an authentic setting for weddings for up to 110 people. The hall is very suitable for children’s parties.

The hall was built in 1933, has been extended and improved greatly since then, is a registered charity and is managed by a committee of trustees for the benefit of the community.

Weddings at Lympstone Village Hall


The hall is fully licensed to conduct weddings and civil ceremonies – we think we are the only village hall in Devon to do this.

It’s a splendid village setting for a traditional and less formal event

All three letting rooms are licensed and we can offer a variety of arrangements to suit weddings and receptions for up to 120 people.

We are now taking bookings for weddings throughout 2019 and 2020. Be aware that Devon Registrars are very busy and that you should book at least 9 months in advance to secure a Saturday early afternoon slot.


Whether you’re looking for somewhere for a family event, wedding or other celebration, Lympstone Village Hall is a great place for a PARTY.

We can cater for up to 150 people. Our layout and facilities give real flexibility, and our refurbished kitchen and bar are central to a good event.
