COVID-19 Update
We are happy to show couples around or have a video call with them for a virtual tour. Unfortuantely because we have moved a lot of weddings from 2020 into 2021 we are now fully booked for 2021, but still have plenty of dates available in 2022
The Cider Barn is an old stone and thatched agricultural barn, now an informal, magical and romantic, rustic wedding venue, set amid the woods and fields of the Dillington Estate

Full Description
The Cider Barn was only recently created as a venue space for our own wedding, so it's about as far from being a mass-produced wedding venue as you can get, and being new also means we have lots of availability, even still in 2020. The barn is offered on a "dry-hire" basis, i.e. you rent the venue, which includes the barn itself, the illuminated bar, the walled courtyard, a tented area for use for drinks in the event of rain, and plenty of parking spaces. You're free to use whichever other suppliers you would like though (your own caterers, or food trucks if you prefer, your own bar-staff, whatever alcohol you would like, decorations, etc.) For ceremonies and dinner the barn can seat 115 guests, and up to 180 for drinks and dancing. We also have four beautiful holiday cottages on the Estate, sleeping up to 38, and can provide space for glamping as well if that's of interest. See our website for photographs of the cottages and more information (

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Ewen Cameron
Congratulations on your engagement and thanks for your interest in the Cider Barn as a potential venue for your wedding. I'm obviously biased, but having created the space for our own wedding, I can personally attest that it's a magical and very special place to get married! We would be very happy to show you around, so if you're interested in coming to visit please do let me know and we would be delighted to arrange a time.
