Full Description
We’ve been hosting Weddings and Parties in our charming eighteenth-century Barns since 1984 and we’d like to think we’ve created a lot of happy memories. Our must-see venue is an authentic barn, with a choice of stunning spaces for your ceremony, original pig sites for the meal and a stunning 300 year old Threshing Barn to party in 'til late. The Barn leads directly onto a private outdoor courtyard; a sun-trap perfect for canapes, drink receptions and festoon-lit dancing. You have exclusive-use of all the Barn's indoor and outdoor spaces, plus the full run of the estate for photographs, including our fields, woodland and old farm outbuildings. Our amazing kitchen caters for all of our events in-house. Our chefs are famous for their BBQs, carveries, indulgent buffets, cakes of cheese and serious tasty hog roasts. The picturesque site is located between the market towns of Melbourne and Castle Donington.

FAQ

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Authentic, Original, Industrial, Relaxed, Rural

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The view from the field in-front of the Farmhouse, towards Breedon-on-the-Hill is stunning

What’s your favourite canapé?

Chorizo & Stilton Toasts! Closely followed by Mini Yorksire Puds with Beef. Yum!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our incredible cheeseboards. Visually stunning and go down a storm!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The Pig Sties, our formal dining room. It's one of a kind, an incredible talking point. (And full of natural light!)

What part of your business are you most proud of?

As a family, we're seriously committed to the environment. We have tonnes of solar panels (mostly out of sight!), a carbon-neutral heating system, reed bed sewage treatment (away from the site of course!) and try to buy locally, including from our own farm and deer park.
