The mansion contains five grand reception rooms, a range of dining spaces, entertaining areas, five acres of gardens, and is even licensed for weddings.

Guests can arrange to have massage and beauty therapists come up to the house for pampering, go horse riding or visit a local waterpark. If you want to simply chill at the house, it comes with a tennis court, a five-a-side soccer pitch, lawn games, and an indoor and outdoor table tennis table.

However, the weather in England is unpredictable and a sunny morning could turn into a grizzly afternoon pretty fast, so Huntsham Court also has a stack of board games to play with. You can even arrange to have DVD players, TVs, a Wii, and a PlayStation put in the house ready for when you get there.

As well as being a place to tie the knot, the country pile can also be used for private parties, reunions, and has started its own wellness retreat.

There's plenty to do in the area as Devon is right on your doorstep.

The Huntsham estate was bought in 1760 and was transformed from a derelict Tudor house to Huntsham Court over one hundred years later. Setting itself up as a home away from home, guests are free to wander into the kitchens and grab a snack from the butler’s pantry or make themselves a cup of tea.

Even though it's a heritage building, Huntsham Court runs on 100% renewable energy.

Huntsham Court has some serious sustainable chops too by pumping water from their private well, using local products and services as well as 100% renewable energy, and giving a home to four hives worth of bees.
