Bantham Bash field the secret is out!
To a handful of lucky couples their is a little know wedding location, tucked away from the small towns and along side the beautiful Devon coastline. Across from the magical Burgh Island is a field named Bantham Bash. When I received the address for the wedding and proceeded to look it up on Google maps, I was rather surprised and sceptical when I couldn’t find it! After some digging about and a browsing through a marquee companies website, who had clearly been the top choice for such occasions, I found it… and registered it to Google maps!
The wedding day itself was amazing, the sun stayed with us all day allowing us to capture some fabulous wedding pictures of Ben & Sam, looking out across the green friends and deep blue sea. If you are looking for a unique and very English wedding location I would highly recommend it. It’s probably worth noting that on a windy day it may have been a slightly different experience, but hey we live in the UK.
To help other brides in finding this wedding venue with a difference I thought I would write a post about it, add in a sprinkle of pictures and the names of some local accommodation. Then if you decide this is the venue for you, your all set to get planning!
Modbury Inn is a great place for wedding guests to stay locally.
Burgh Island Hotel for your guests with a little extra budget.
Directions to the field
Head towards Kingsbridge on A379.
Travel through Aveton Gifford, over long bridge, across river and up hill on other side.
At large roundabout, travel straight across, signposted to Thurlestone.
A little further on, you will see a small signpost on left indicating a right turn, by a cottage, to
Thurlestone. Turn right here and follow lane until it meets up with another lane from left.
Carry on and as you near village of Thurlestone, there is a 30mph sign next to a gate on right.
This is Bantham Bash field.
