Breckenhill is an exclusive-use private barn venue to hire for your wedding. Ideal for the creative bride and groom who wish to make their day unique in their own special way. Basically, you hire the venue, then add your choice of caterers, decor company, florist, music and DJ, etc. On enquiry, we will send you a list of our Recommended Suppliers, along with our price list and Terms and Conditions.
We have a number of options for the ceremony, depending on your number of guests, and the weather! They include:
Upstairs in the barn: Seats up to 80
Downstairs: Seats up to 30
Drawing Room in the Georgian house: Seats up to 25
Garden (various areas): any number of guests, but remember they need to be able to be accommodated for the meal as well
This can be held in any of the areas mentioned, or in a marquee (we have a small one, or there are hire companies on our suppliers' list). The upstairs room can be changed from ceremony to dining area very quickly. As hog roasts, barbecues, pizza vans and similar are so popular now, we also have a former agricultural barn that can also be used for a more informal style of dining, and later on for dancing. This barn seats up to around 120, at our rustic wooden trestle tables. We have an Entertainment Licence finishing at 1am and we request that guests have all departed by 1.30am. We can now also offer accommodation in lovely bell tents - glamp on site! Yippee Tents have joined up with us to provide the tents and have various price brackets from £200 for a basic 4-bed (lovely air beds) tent to a luxury furnished tent for the bride and groom.

Impossible to choose the best wedding, but we loved the fancy dress wedding, where the groom planned everything himself from when the 150 guests arrived on a bus, champagne reception at the bridge on the drive, playbus and petting zoo for the kids, hog roast, mobile pizza wagon, ice cream van, outdoor activities, archery, and more, more, more!
