Celebrate in style
The restored Welsh Barn is ideal for weddings. Its enchanting courtyard, with a wooden gazebo decorated with flowers and covered in Perspex if the weather is unkind, is a generous space both inside and out for up to 160 guests. The Barn has many electric points, underfloor heating, insulation, hard floors, integral toilets, and a catering area, but still retains the character of the original building.
The split-level Granary, with its canopied beams and light-stone floor, can accommodate 85 loved ones, and there is space in the gallery above for extra friends and family if needed. This area is ideal for intimate ceremonies or an extra reception space.
Couples wanting to enjoy the great outdoors can tie the knot anywhere in the gardens or in the wooden summerhouse.
There is lots of optional accommodation on-site, including two self- catering cottages. The Honeysuckle Cottage, which sleeps eight people, and The Coachmans, which sleeps two, are ideal as a little getaway on your wedding night. The Manor House with the Stables and Saddlers can be made available for up to 27 guests on a staffed basis, with breakfast included.
