Full Description
A secluded, rural location set in the Olchon Valley on a 70 acre farm with dramatic mountain backdrop. The folding glass doors of the barn open up onto a pretty lawn, orchard and wildflower meadow with plenty of space for guests to explore. The super friendly team at Lower House Farm have a flexible approach, allowing you to put your own stamp on the venue and create the day you’ve dreamed of. With a dedicated wedding coordinator to help you plan the day, they can offer as much or as little support as you would like. Exclusive to you, the beautifully restored, 17th century barn with vaulted ceilings, flagstone floors and oak timber beams has space for up to 120 guests to feast on long wooden tables with sheepskin adorned benches. Once transformed for the evening, there is capacity for up to 150 guests to party the night away. Using their home reared meat as well as locally sourced produce, your wedding feast will be cooked in the woodfired outdoor kitchen. Whilst your guests mingle, they can watch the kitchen magic happen and enjoy wafts of succulent joints of meat and charred seasonal veg being prepared. Take a stroll to their own secret waterfall, play lawn games in the huge field bordering the Olchon River, have photos with the dramatic mountain backdrop and even toast marshmallows around the firepit come sunset. A wildly beautiful space to host a day to remember. Glamp near the river or book a stay at their nearby country farm house, Old Great Marlborough, sleeping 22.

we just knew this was the perfect place for us
We had the most fabulous wedding day at Lower House Farm, it was perfect. As soon as we arrived at the top of the drive and saw the beautiful hills and the farm nestled in the valley – we just knew that this was the perfect place for us. The team were so welcoming and helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble.
