Full Description
  • River Cottage HQ is yours exclusively for the day. You can say ‘I do’ in front of your nearest and dearest in the famous farmhouse, or the beautifully restored Threshing barn if you intend to invite a crowd. Guests are welcome to wander the smallholding at their leisure; relax in our yurt, serve welcome drinks out in the walled garden, or even have your blessing amongst the sweet peas! The River Cottage kitchen team are renowned for cooking up wonderful celebratory dinners, featuring the very best local produce. After a sumptuous meal it will be time to dance the night away in the Barn. For smaller parties (up to 20 guests) we can arrange exclusive use of the farmhouse. For larger parties we can hire in marquees; a supplement will apply and is priced by requirement.Please note, for exclusive use of the full site we require a minimum spend of 50 adults taking a two course meal plus the facility fee. Gather your closest family and friends for an intimate lunch or dinner in the beautifully restored farmhouse the day before your wedding as we also offer pre-wedding dining experiences (subject to availability). Plus the Bride and Groom receive a complimentary bottle of our own Elderflower bubbly to take away and enjoy!
