West Midlands, Lower House Farm, Longtown, Herefordshire, HR2 0NT

Enquire Now

Lower House Farm a real farm wedding venue. There’s nothing airbrushed about it; it’s a working farm with a gorgeous, lovingly restored medieval barn set amongst the dramatic landscape of Herefordshire’s Black Mountains. The farm is a family affair, with food, particularly the rare-breed, grass-fed meat that the family raise taking centre stage.

Husband and Wife team Ed and Francesca look after you, helping you organise the smooth running of the day. Meanwhile Francesca’s brother 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 type of operation. From the wedding feast, served communally to long wooden tables and benches lined with their own sheepskins through to the style of warm and cheery staffing.  Furthermore most of the waitresses, parking attendants and bar staff are Ed and Francesca’s friends or family! Everything is designed to make you and your guests feel relaxed, welcome and well looked after.

The barn, with its vaulted ceilings, flag-stone floors (with under-floor heating for the colder months) and wooden beams can be used for a ceremony, for the wedding feast and then again in the evening as a dance floor. In good weather, guests can have ceremonies, acoustic music, drinks and canapés out in a huge field bordering the Olchon River, complete with a timer-framed awning, wood-fired pizza oven and a tipi seating 30.

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, and as much of the fruit and veg as possible is grown by Francesca 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!).

Say What?

|| Beth & Chris 17th June 2016. We literally can’t express how grateful we are to you for making our BIG day soooo special, but we’re going to try… We came here for Anna’s birthday last year and as we drove down the drive, we looked at each other, grinned and said ‘let’s get married here!’. And that’s even before we met you both and tried the wonderful food.  This is such a unique location and you have all worked so hard to make a fantastic, homemade and relaxing place where friends and family can meet to celebrate with each other. So many of our friends told us that the food was the best wedding meal they had ever had.  Your enthusiasm, has been great, and has made me feel so calm in the lead up to the day. Thank you so, so, so much for helping this be the best day of our lives. P.S. we can’t wait to come again. ||

|| Helen & Elise 1st July 2017. Dear Francesca, Ed, Jake, Amie & Crew. Thanks SO much for all your hard work and style and grace that went into making our wedding so perfect. It was a pleasure to plan with your help, the farm was beautiful, the food was fabulous and everything went so well. You got rave reviews from our guests too, especially the kids! Maybe see you back at Old Great Marlborough for an anniversary sometime! ||
