A real farm wedding venue. A working farm with a gorgeous, lovingly restored seventeenth century barn set amongst the dramatic landscape of the Black Mountains between England and Wales
This real farm wedding venue is a family affair. Food, particularly the rare-breed, grass-fed meat that the family raise takes centre stage. A dedicated Events Coordinator will help you organise the smooth running of the day. The in-house catering team led by Jake, a chef who has previously worked at world renowned restaurants Noma, Logan and Brown and Outlaws at the Capital, takes charge in the kitchen – or over the spit, the wood-fired oven, or the fire-pit!
From start to finish, this is a personal, bespoke operation. Your feast is served communally on long wooden tables and benches lined with their own sheepskins. Everything is designed to make you and your guests feel relaxed, welcome and well fed.
Not to mention, the versatile 17th century barn. With its vaulted ceilings, flag-stone floors (with under-floor heating and wood burner for the colder months) and wooden beams, it can be used for a ceremony, the wedding feast and as a dance floor.
Blue skies and sunshine? Ceremonies, acoustic music, drinks and canapés can take place out in a huge field bordering the Olchon River, complete with a timber-framed awning, old railway carriage and plenty of space for lawn games.
Bifold glass doors along one end of the barn open up onto a pretty lawn, orchard and wildflower meadow with plenty of space for guests to spread their wings throughout the day, even taking a stroll down to their very own waterfall.
More about the food
Feasting with friends and family should always be at the heart of wedding celebrations. You really can’t get more local than this. All the meat served comes from the farm and from grass-fed and free-range native breeds, reared slowly and naturally and then aged and butchered on site by the family. All this and as much of the fruit and veg as possible is grown on the farm’s allotment. Jake cures his own salami and chorizo which make a popular canapé, and his homemade sausage rolls, hot from the oven with local chutneys, are a tried-and-tested late night snack (as are wood-fired pizzas!).
