Ashley Wood Farm is a remarkable place set in 10,000 acres on the Fonthill Estate, utterly peaceful and beautiful with amazing views. We love welcoming couples and their families here and can be on hand to help you, or completely out of your way. We see you as a constant flow of love streaming in and out of the farm and also believe this gives it a very special atmosphere

The best thing about Ashley Wood is the ease and s
Ashley Wood Farm is such an amazing venue, we got married here with the plan to host the ceremony outside, hoping for glorious weather. It completely ripped down all day but the barn (upstairs) was just as perfect, and the milking barn held our guests for both the reception and party! It was renamed the party barn! The best thing about Ashley Wood not including the views, is the ease and simplicity of the venue, it is great to be able to create your own vision with a blank canvas! Bea and Ralph were just great especially helping me into the ceremony and trying to keep me dry. Thank you again!

The venue was perfect for our wedding. I would highly recommend. Having exclusive use of the venue for the weekend means we weren't rushed to set up or take down. There's no pressure to use a certain caterer and no corkage allowing us to supply guests with enough alcohol. and obviously the venue is stunning!!
