Be the first one to tell everyone about the experience you’ve had with this supplier.
It is a "blank canvas" ready for you to personalise in any way you wish - from adding simple decorations to making elaborate arrangements.
With this in mind we give you access from 6pm the night before to set up and until 12 noon the day after your wedding to clear your decorations.
Fabulously private and secluded, you will enjoy exclusive use of the venue and we will do everything we can to make sure your special day goes without a hitch and is memorable for all the right reasons!
We have a license to hold wedding ceremonies and civil partnership services in our Carpenter's Barn and we can also arrange woodland wedding blessings.
The barn itself can accommodate around 100 guests for a sit down meal. Our semi-permanent marquee on the woodland deck extends the covered space, seating a further 125 guests. Additional marquees can be put up on the lawn if required. After the wedding feast, the tables and chairs can be cleared to create a huge dance floor. You can hire a band or a dj to play in the barn - perfect for country dancing and we can even arrange straw bales for seating!
We have a licensed bar, a large fire circle. There are lawns for entertainment and a meandering trail through the ancient woodland. The newly weds can spend the night in our Honeymoon Shepherd’s Hut and we also have 9 shepherd huts accommodating a further 36 guests and camping on our South lawn, for those guests wishing to stay into the early hours.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
At present....... all one hundred & twenty four of them.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Apart from fire works, because of the forest, anything if not every thing is a possibility.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Sorry, they have all been great, as each and every wedding is so different. But the ingraved Star Wars rings, inside a Jedi Master book was pretty cool along with the brides white storm trooper boots, the groom had no idea about.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Lovely Unusual Inventive Organic Green
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Every one is different, from Redwood Trees in the forest, large oak trees in a meadow, or sitting around a camp fire in the evening.
