There are two cool fire bowl communal gathering spaces, one in the communal area and the other a little walk away in our woodland.  And plenty of fields and woodland areas if you would like to plan something a bit different. Work with us to make your dream come true. You will have our undivided attention throughout and are we are happy to change location from outdoors to indoors quite last minute due to the weather.

Our chef can prepare Vegan and Vegetarian Feasts as well.  Our venue includes vintage crockery, cutlery and glassware. As well as tables, chair and straw bales. If you need a specific colour scheme and design to match your theme we can recommend local crockery, marquee or furniture hire.

The most amazing Venue. Could not have asked for any more. Thank you so much for making our Day so special. All our friends and family loved the Farm and the lovely staff too.
This venue has the wow factor. Its is not a wedding factory churning out weddings but does a limited number of exclusive weddings. The special touches and the care is clearly evident in all the little details. The best day and the most amazing venue.
