Frequently Asked Question

How long will we have the barns for?

If your wedding is on a Saturday, you have the barns from Thursday morning to start decorating them, and you have until Sunday afternoon to empty the barns. You have the accommodation and camping field for Friday and Saturday evening. If your wedding is on a Tuesday, you have the barns from Monday morning to set up, and until Wednesday evening to clear away.

How do we Pay?

We ask for 15% of the fee to confirm your booking. After this you pay half one year ahead and the remaining balance to be paid 6 months prior to the wedding.

What is included in the price

For the venue hire price you will get use of the fields, barns (which will come with drapes, lighting and stage), toilets and showers, accommodation, our bar service and help and advice. You will also get use of any props we have such as hay bales, cable reels and decorations and a next day clear up service.

If you want furniture we also have a suggested supplier and this cost will depend on how many guests you want seated.

What are the rules on music?

The use of amplified music is permitted until 11.00pm and disco music until 12 pm. We ask that if campers are staying Friday evening they do not have loud music on.

What are the bar packages?

There are 2 drinks options:

  1. We can provide a cash bar with reasonable prices and an excellent selection of beers, wines and spirits.  We serve all drinks in plastic glasses for safety reasons for the animals on the farm. However you are welcome to use actual glasses for the reception and toast. If you want to provide your own table drinks/reception drinks whilst using our bar, this is fine we just ask for £3.50 a bottle corkage or 75p for a small bottle of beer/can.
  2. You can also run a free bar by having a prepaid tab with us, in which case staff and bar space are included.

We provide welcome drinks packages – please enquire.

What are the catering facilities?

We have plenty of space on site for caterers to set up a catering marquee or gazebo or serve from inside the barns. We had had a full range of catering companies here from pizza pods, to a full 3 course sit down hot meal. We can accommodate most catering needs and discuss this with your chosen catering company. We have running water and electric points for caterers although an extension lead is often needed. Caterers must take their own waste home.

Can we get married at the barns?

Yes! You can now get married on site! Please book this through a registrar.

However we still recommend humanist ceremonies if you prefer a more personal and relaxed feel!

Can guests camp on site?

Yes we have a wonderful field for camping with stunning views. We also have a local supplier for belle tents should you wish to hire one. Campervans and caravans are also welcome but we do not have electric hook ups. We do have running water to the field. We ask all campers to please take their own rubbish home and to have no glass on the campsite.

Do we need to pay for extra staff?

Your catering company should supply staff for serving food and clear up. However if you require extra staff for on the day clear up, or for rearranging the ceremony barn etc we can do this for £10 an hour.

It must be noted we are a DIY venue and as such we are responsible for any problems with the venue but we are not a wedding planning company. If you are concerned about the smooth running of your day, for things like timings, lighting candles etc we suggest hiring an on the day coordinator for who we can make suggestions.

Do we need heaters?

We recommend you hire heaters for the barns if the forecast is looking chilly. However not electric ones as this could compromise the circuit so fuel ones are best. We do have outdoor firepits and a grillkota for cosy warm areas but the barns would need extra heating for which we can recommend a supplier.
