Weddings in the wood

Where more magical than our Carpenter’s Barn, hidden amongst the trees of a private woodland estate, to host a woodland wedding? 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 and bbq facilities. 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 accommodation on site for your guests.

We provide the blank canvas for you to design your perfect event - this allows you the freedom to have your own dream wedding.
