I'm naffed off. Hugely. Every time I think I have it sussed something goes wrong. \n\n1. Booked gorgeous group rental holiday home - she quadrupled the price when she found out was for a wedding reception\n2. Found unbelievable idyllic village hall - planning permission granted for them to build a housing estate in the grounds which would be hell.\n3. .Look at gorgeous cantoneign falls. They are stopping self catering in 2011. I get married 2012.\n\n\nWhat do I do now? I hate and can't afford the hotel option. All the village halls within 20 miles are either closed / turned into houses / being sold. No gold / tennis etc clubs suitable. Farms all way over priced (more than a hotel).\n\nAll I want is a nice small rural place to hold a reception for 40 self catering. It can't be that hard can it? I can't be the only woman to have such a requirement in Devon. I so have my heart set on my round tables with my big teapot and bucket displays, my teasets and my vintage cake stands and plates. I have the carafes for the ginger beer and the rustic glasses. I just need the venue. \n\nIt'll be there somewhere. The venue of my dreams, inexpensive and sitting there begging for my custom. I just need to find it!
