Weekend Getaway: Colehayes Park in Devon, England

This past weekend, we went to a really good wedding. And if you've been lucky enough to attend a really good wedding recently, you know how magical they can be. 

Mix friends and family with food, drink, dancing, and put them all together in a beautiful setting and you have the type of thing that just makes you feel better about life in general. Faith in humanity = restored.

The wedding took place in the English countryside. To be specific to people who know something about England, it was at Colehayes Park and Field Study, which is in the Dartmoor National Park in Devon. And my, was it lovely. 

The Georgian mansion dates back to 1540 and was as beautiful in the day and creepy in the night as they come.

Imagine 20-something bedroom mansion situated on the edge of a national park. Add a swimming pond, plenty of sheep, and you have something worthy of royalty. (No really – Prince William and Prince Harry once stayed in our room.)

Here are a few photos from our weekend:

We stayed at Colehayes for about four days, and spent our time dining outdoors on barbeque and woodfire pizzas, reading, napping, and explore the nearby grounds: 

And then we enjoyed the most perfect wedding, set in an English garden with the sheep providing the soundtrack. There were balloons, bubbles, and plenty of Pimm's and sunshine.
