Tracey Estate Parkland & Gardens is a venue for weddings, events and education

Tracey Estate is a privately owned parkland estate,  a little known gem nestled in the heart of the Devon countryside - a part of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Tracey Estate is a venue situated in the beautiful East Devon countryside. We offer a magical backdrop to set your own customised events package. Discover your perfect day set in the gardens of a bygone era, resurrected and restored to create an atmospheric and enchanting venue for your wedding or event. Tracey Estate also offers a programme of events designed to maximise enjoyment of the stunning landscape. 

It has a diverse history dating back to the 12th century: being founded in December 1170 by William de Tracey, who was one of the four knights who assassinated Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury.

Tracey Gardens are the most complete Lucombe and Pince planned gardens still in existence; however, through years of neglect, they have become very overgrown. This designed parkland is currently undergoing restoration to re-establish its original beauty. Tracey spans 25 acres of woodland garden, with exotic specimen trees .There are many Victorian features, such as the unusual sunken garden, Victorian bathing pools, a yew circle, walled garden and giant rhododendrons.

Tracey house is no longer standing but the gardens still survive and make a stunning backdrop. The original paths have been restored to enable delightful woodland walks with stunning views of the valley and the river Otter running beneath it.
