Beautiful venue, highly recommend!
We would thoroughly recommend this beautiful venue for any celebration and would like to thank Cherry for all of her advice and support to help us design the wedding that we wanted. This venue is perfect for those who wish to retain flexibility as you can source your own suppliers and we had access to the Barn the day before to set it all up, which allowed us to relax and enjoy the wedding morning without jobs to do! Thank you again, Kate and Doug

Magical venue!
The venue is magical. It manages to mix both the rustic and the comfortable, it is light without losing any of its atmosphere. Everyone was delighted with how beautiful it was, and Cherry allows you to put as much of your own personal stamp on it as you like. My daughter fell in love with it as her wedding venue as soon as she saw it, and on the day I could see why. We spent a day decorating it, and by morning any mess we had inadvertently made was tidied by Cherry. The drive, the front seating area, the barn and the yard - all immaculate. And after the wonderful day, we returned to collect our personal effects to find that the barn was once more clean and tidy and we didnt have to do any of the messy work ourselves. Cherry is a lovely lady, very kind, she really couldn't have been more helpful. I would recommend the venue to anyone, and everyone, and I do! Thank you so much.

A very special place
Stockbridge Barn is a very special place and we would, without hesitation, recommend this to anyone wanting to marry in the Sherborne area. We spent a great deal of time looking at venues all over Dorset; we were interested in a rustic country wedding. When we saw Stockbridge, we knew we had found the perfect place; it has an authentic, rustic charm with enormous character, but also huge space, flexibility and a lovely surrounding area. The real clincher for us however, was the owner, Cherry. Her approach was professional, but with a light touch - she was very happy for us decide how we were going to do things, but was always there to help if we needed it. Come the day, the support she gave us was excellent throughout. in addition, her recommended bar man, Andy Langland is a must hire - again, another individual who is effortlessly professional and an enormous addition to the day; taking a lot of stress out of finding, sourcing and preparing the drinks. We have exceptionally happy memories of our day at Stockbridge, which will last a life time.

Thank you!
We just wanted to thank you for all your help in making our wedding day so special last week. The barn looked beautiful in the sun and we received so many compliments from guests for the venue. Thank you for all your help in the build up to the wedding and being so accommodating and flexible with arrangements. The caterers you recommended were excellent, particularly Fleur Provocateur for flowers and Dorset Fine Dining's food. Your tireless work before and after the wedding really allowed things to run smoothly for us. All the very best for for the future. I am sure Stockbridge will continue to be a popular wedding venue for many years to come.

Perfect venue for our special day
Libby and I wanted to give you a huge thank you for providing us with the perfect venue for our special day. We absolutely loved having our wedding at the barn, it is a fantastic building and we had so many lovely comments from our guests. The barn itself offers such a rustic atmosphere and allows everyone to be together in one room with for the meal, dancing and everything in between. Also thank you for being so flexible and helpful in the lead up to the day which made things run so smoothly. Once again thank you very much. We will definitely recommend the barn to others.

Everything we hoped for and more!
We got married at Stockbridge Farm Barn in May 2018. Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be, and more. We fell in love with Stockbridge Barn the moment we saw it - it simply sells itself and it was the perfect back drop to the wedding day we had imagined when we started to plan. Cherry is a pleasure to work with, very helpful and always on hand for any questions. The beauty of the venue is we could do whatever we wanted to make our wedding as personal as we wanted it to be. We used Crab Apple catering for our day food which was a posh bbq served to our guests on sharing platters and chocolate brownie and ice cream for pudding! We had Flamin Grate pizza doing our evening food which went down a storm with our guests. Our rustic wild flowers were by Ali from Wild Farm Flowers. We danced the night away to the Brightside Band who were fantastic. We were blessed with beautiful warm sunny weather which meant the outside space was perfect for our guests to sit and relax with a glass of bubbly. The venue creates a relaxed and intimate atmosphere where you can enjoy every moment of your wedding day with your family and friends. Other suppliers we used: Splendid loo company David hammond photography Stalbridge Linen Must also highly recommend Stoneleigh Barn B&B who were fantastic for the whole weekend. My family also said Folke Manor accommodation was great. The bar people were really nice too. We’ve only got positive things to say about all our suppliers which is good! I bet all the couples are loving this weather at the barn. We were so lucky with our weather. Thanks for everything Cherry, we are thrilled we found the barn and feel very lucky to have had our wedding there.

Two weddings stand out in past years - one was a Medieval Banquet which was planned with great attention to the details and felet as if we had just moved back a few hundred years in time. The other wedding was themed on Lord of the Rings swith all the guests arriving in the most amazing costumes. Unforgetable!
