On Tuesday 4th January 2022 building works will commence in the Village Hall and it will be closed to all users except for pre-school, this will be open as usual. The project will deliver improvements to the hall and convert the former committee room to a lounge area. The existing bar will be removed and repositioned providing better bar facilities and the main store room will be reconfigured to provide more space and secure storage.
The work is likely to last for 4 – 5 weeks. Progress and updates will be published on this website.
Weddings, Events and Parties, celebrate, meet and greet
Nestled in the Blackdown Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a quintessentially small East Devon village, we are one of the largest hall venues in the area, offering the opportunity to hold corporate and community events, celebrate your wedding, host a party for a special occasion and to relax with colleagues, relatives and friends.
Weddings are our speciality, inviting couples from near and far to join the growing trend for village hall wedding receptions. Inexpensive to hire, due to our competitive rates, our versatile venue offers you the flexibility to choose your own colour schemes, decorations, drinks and caterers. Take a look at our wedding package, which offers the option of adding our beautiful drapes to help you create the perfect romantic atmosphere for your special day. Enhance the romantic atmosphere further, by siting a marquee close to and with direct access to the hall; extending our venue’s versatility and flexibility even further and offering you numerous possibilities for your final lay out.
Licensed for music and the sale of alcohol, with an impressive Maple sprung dance floor, our offer extends beyond the ability to host weddings to parties and corporate events, music and art productions, providing the perfect ingredients for them to go with a swing! Beyond these, there are so many more compelling reasons to hire our hall. It regularly supports community activities; hosts club meetings and fitness classes, to name but a few.
Whilst you are with us, you may wish to take a stroll in our extensive grounds to enjoy the beautiful setting. Or maybe linger a while, to capture a photo or two of the happy couple, your wedding, or party guests, against the perfect backdrop. Interested in learning more? We hope you enjoy browsing our website and would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We’d love to hear from you!
“I would like to express how impressed I was when I recently booked Stockland Village Hall for our bi-annual charity fund-raiser. From the initial booking through to picking up the last few bits and pieces the morning after the event, I received excellent service and nothing was too much bother. The hall is a fabulous venue for corporate entertaining, accommodating 150 guests and the band very comfortably. The muslin drapes were a beautiful touch and I received so many compliments on how fabulous the hall looked. Parking was no problem at all and it was lovely to be able to open the doors and use the outdoor area to enjoy the wonderful weather. All in all, we were totally delighted and will, without question, be booking again for our next function.”
