The most beautiful, rustic wedding venue with fairytale gardens.
We chose the Backhouse Rossie Estate for our wedding because it ticked every single box when we were looking for a venue for our special day. From the pretty tree lined road to the estate to the absolutely beautiful converted barn areas to the fairytale gardens… it really is a magical place. There are so many areas to have the ceremony too! the woods, beautifully kept lawns, the real wood lined barn areas and of course the impeccably maintained gardens. Caroline, the owner was SO friendly and knowledgeable and along with her wedding team were an amazing help in planning our day. I work within the wedding industry too and I felt that a lot of places just viewed you as another Bride and Groom but Caroline made us feel like we were having our wedding at a family members home. We got married in October and had exclusive use of the whole estate. The gardens looked and smelt absolutely STUNNING with so many photo opportunities. I would highly recommend this venue for your special day.

The Back House Rossie not just a wedding venue
From the Grooms point of view: We had our whole wedding here and can’t recommend it enough. It’s located in the Fife country side only a stones throw away from Auchtermuchty and Cupar. The place is self contained so no need taxis or busses after the wedding ceremony. This was ideal for our intimate wedding but could have easily accommodated lots more. There’s also plenty of scope to have the wedding in the walled gardens. Caroline was very attentive and had some great ideas about where the ceremony could take place and how that might work. We had ours inside (because it was October) and then had the photos taken inside and outside by Iann Struthers. Iann knew the venue very well and took full advantage of the beautiful gardens. The Stewart’s bar came well stocked and the bar staff was very pleasant. We chose to have the Strathern food company for our fish supper wedding breakfast and no one was left hungry at the end of the night. Once the band had set up in the corner of the barn there was plenty of room for the dance floor. I will definitely look to hire the Back House again the next time I can find an excuse to have a big party.

Hidden Gem!
We got married at Backhouse Rossie in August 2022 and it was honestly the best day ever. The venue is absolutely stunning, so well looked after and the walled garden is a total showstopper. We were lucky enough to get married on the lawn with the Lomond hills as our backdrop on a scorcher of a day and then used the garden for our professional pictures. The owners are lovely, couldn't do more and the wee cottage that came as part of the venue hire was absolutely perfect for us as we had two toddlers who we were able to put to bed with a babysitter and still enjoy our night. It's quirky, beautiful and honestly just the most perfect wee hidden gem.

A lovely day at a beautiful venue
My husband and I had our wedding reception at Backhouse Rossie Estate and really enjoyed our day. The grounds were great for photos. Our guests were well looked after. The day went smoothly and to time. Their recommended caterer was so professional and the food was delicious. The planning team at Backhouse were super helpful throughout the whole process, even when it came to last minute trouble shooting.
