The lovingly restored barn complex features a magnificent 200-year-old Threshing Barn, which radiates rustic charm with authentic wooden beams and iron wrought chandeliers. This combined with stylish contemporary touches, such as the unique concrete polished floor make the barn an ideal venue for any wedding party. The barn can accommodate up to 140 for a sit down meal which is catered for by the much-coveted team at Field & Fork.
Sitting adjacent to this is the Dairy Barn, which is fully licensed for all civil ceremonies and partnerships. With a wonderful sweeping 22 metre aisle and handmade sweet chestnut benches that can seat up to 140, the barn is an idyllic setting for loved ones to exchange their vows.
Couples can also make use of the calm and luxurious surroundings of the bridal suite, which is located in its own private courtyard. Once used as a dairy parlour it has now been revamped with contemporary interiors complete with driftwood mirrors, lavish rugs and log fire, which will be lit and ready for the couple’s return with a bottle of local Tinwood Sparkling Wine.
There is ample outdoor space with a picturesque courtyard that lies at the heart of the venue, with its luscious lawn, well-kept pots and Cornish slate patio lined with dairy inspired milk churns – it is the perfect spot for photographs and for mingling with guests over drinks and canapés.
As evening falls, the gardens are lit with romantic up-lights that show off the fantastic flint and log walls of the wedding barns. Here guests can gather around the relaxing Collecting Yard with its sumptuous sofas and fire pits to enjoy a truly magical evening setting; the perfect end to a perfect day.
