    Detailed Description

    We can cater for small, intimate ceremonies in our guest lounge accommodating up to 25 people, or up to 250 guests in our barn, depending on the type of wedding you want. Our large stock barn is available for larger ceremonies, where you could then hold the entire event, making it all under one roof, or relocate to a marquee or tipi for the reception, either on our field or near the campsite – after the ceremony. The choice is yours.

    We offer our whole venue for a 3 night weekend - so plenty of time to get the venue ready, but also to spend quality time with friends and family - which makes for some fab memories.

    If you were thinking about having your wedding somewhere rural and picturesque, that’s connected to nature and easily adaptable for your ideas, then Gwaenynog could be the perfect place for you… Want somewhere to have the ceremony and reception together in a relaxed environment, and where you can have the added benefit of accommodating all your friends? And maybe for the whole weekend? Or perhaps a festival wedding theme? We can offer tipi’s or other unusual tents rather than just marquees, let your imagination (and budget) help you decide. Just call to discuss and we can come up with a plan…

    We can offer a variety of styles from 3 course dinners, hot or cold buffet style or perhaps something more rustic with a hog roast, pulled pork or even a BBQ or street food style, it all depends on what you want. Our location is adaptable.

    If you want some other ideas, then head over to our Pinterest board. We’ve chosen pictures which would give you a flavour of what could be done here.

    In addition to this, we also have a Dutch Barn which is suitable for bands, with a stage, and a rustic dance floor – this is made up of rubber stable mats. Some of our photos show this layout.


    - Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
    Actually it was probably the first one - my step-daughter. She was the guinea-pig, in that if it hadn't worked so beautifully, we would not have bothered setting- up as a business!
    - What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
    Early Planning!
    - What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
    Some wellies belonging to someone who was no longer with us - it brought a tear to a few eyes.
