Weddings

Your Perfect Wedding Day

The business owners are active in the business day in, day out, and will personally supervise your wedding, from enquiry, through to planning stage, and delivery. You can be confident of a professional hospitality team working hard to ensure you and your guests are wowed!

Choose from a variety of rooms and spaces, each of which can be configured especially for your wedding. Perhaps you would like the ground floor lounge area which includes a full bar set up and ball room where you can dance the night away? The more intimate library where you can chat and enjoy good company? Or, the well-equipped Burlesque room?

All spaces are tastefully and stylishly furnished with contemporary furniture, controllable lighting, sound PA and ample sockets.

The Carlton is fast becoming North Devon’s choice for funerals and life celebrations.

Celebration of life, of a loved one, family relative or friend is naturally a difficult occasion. At The Carlton we have over time hosted a number of events marking the passing of loved ones. Our sympathetic approach, planning and service being welcomed by the organisers of each. The hotel has private rooms, which can be exclusively used by your party; you will have the dignity of well-appointed facilities to welcome friends and family after the formal funeral. Further, our event spaces can be booked at any time of the year, any time of the week or day.

The timeline to planning the funeral can vary greatly and often depends on the authorities. We are nimble though and can cater at really short notice should the need arise.

Frequently this is usually an afternoon, during the week, following on from the funeral service.
