Spaces – We have A Posh Indoor Award winning Threshing Barn called the Hayloft and another stunning Outdoor Barn. 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. We can be booked throughout the year due to our indoor spaces, wood burners and electric blankets in the posh tents. Peak season is April to Sept.

Food – We  grow all the food for our guests organically here on the farm and are known for our foodiness. We love cooking outdoors on open fires and have an indoor commercial kitchen as well if you want something more suitable to indoor cooking. Our chef can prepare Vegan and Vegetarian Feasts as well.  Our venue includes vintage crockery, cutlery and glassware. As well as tables, chairs, vintage crates 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.

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.
