Full Description
From the vaulted ceiling, to the exposed stone walls and limestone flagged floor, our traditional 200-year-old Westmorland stone barn offers a unique rustic elegance that can be tailored to suit any style conscious couple’s theme. Enter through our traditional oak barn doors and walk up the aisle surrounded by all the character you could wish for, before you and your partner exchange vows under our enchanting canopy of festoon lights, or under our handcrafted outdoor pavilion with its stunning scenic backdrop. For couples seeking a church wedding, there are several beautiful historic churches nearby. In addition to the main barn we have a spacious adjoining Reception/Bar area with a striking floral canopy, cosy seating areas, and timber panelled bathrooms. Our newly created lounge has a boho, relaxed vibe and is available exclusively for the couple to use pre and post ceremony. Guests are also able to enjoy our outside areas, which offer stunning views of the surrounding scenery from a landscaped lawn and patio which feature natural wooden seating and a thatched gazebo. Eden Barn is run by the Harker family and we are conscious that this is your day and we want to make our venue feel personal and special to you. Catering is provided by our sole supplier Southcott Events, who can create bespoke menus using locally sourced produce, and serve your evening food in style from ‘The Shack’. The accommodation brochure on our website, www.edenbarn.co.uk, highlights the excellent local accommodation available nearby. We also have an on-site business from which you can hire tables and chairs. We are located in Little Musgrave, 3 miles from both Kirkby Stephen and Brough, and 4 miles from the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The nearest train station is only 5 miles away and is on the idyllic Settle to Carlisle Railway line. Eden Barn is also close to Appleby and Ravenstonedale.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Cliff, Owner
Hello, let me tell you the story .... Eden Barn started when the Barn on our farm was restored for the wedding of our eldest daughter Andrea in 2015. The day was magical and, through couple requests, we opened our doors so you could enjoy your own Wedding at Eden Barn. My wife Carolyn and daughters Andrea and Julia, would love to meet your show you around either virtually or in person!

It ran so smoothly
To the Harker Family, Thank you so much for being so incredible on our wedding day and making it so special and run so smoothly. We really appreciate how you took care of so many little details and thought of everything. You really went over and above in helping our Aunty Elaine after her fall and she is still singing your praises to this day. You have such a lovely venue and are a lovely family. Thank you for everything. Lots of love, Lucy & Chris

Thank you Eden Barn
Eden Barn was the first and only wedding venue we visited - we knew in an instant that it was the one. The Harker family are very kind, personable and were so helpful throughout our wedding planning. The high ceilings and carefully thought out decor in the venue were all so beautiful and it was exactly the style we were going for when we started the wedding venue search. The fountain lights at the end of the aisle are something else and have made us some great wedding photographs. The team at Eden Barn ensure you have the personal touch and gave us some great ideas to make our day extra special. I could not recommend this venue enough. It was really the best day of our lives and Eden Barn will always hold a special place in our hearts.

A Home Away From Home
Just wanted to reach out and say thank you for such a great day on Sunday photographing at your beautiful venue. It's never easy going so far from home and missing my wife and our sausage dog but when I'm welcomed so warmly as I was to Eden Barn that really makes me feel great. Numerous moments of support throughout the day helped me create some of my best work of the year so thank you for that. Whether it was the free soft drinks from Cliff, the warm introduction from Andrea or the general chit chat about weddings with Carolyn and Andrea. You all made me feel most welcome and you're definitely my kind of people, "people people" :). I couldn't believe it in the evening when Cliff (the owner) was sorting taxis out for guests and making sure they got home ok. Something I rarely see at other venues, such a lovely touch. I know Zoe and Andrew had the best of times despite the events which curtailed it a little.

The Best Wedding Day
We got married at Eden Barn on the 23rd October 2021, after 2 postponements, we could honestly not have asked for a more perfect venue or day. Cliff, Carolyn & Andrea made sure the day ran perfectly. All the little details and management of the day was sorted and dealt with so that we had a stress free day. We only needed to visit one wedding venue to know that it was the place for us and we would recommend the whole Harker family to anyone looking at getting married in a stunning venue. All our guests were well taken care of and we all just want to repeat the whole day. Also Southcott Catering who work alongside Eden Barn were amazing and the food was absolutely beautiful. All in all an extremely perfect & magical day!

Eden barn wedding 26th September 2021
We had the most incredible wedding at Eden barn, the venue is absolutely beautiful. After getting our wedding postponed from 2020 we moved our wedding to 2021, and it was worth the wait. The day was everything we dreamed of and more. The Harker family are wonderful and the day ran flawlessly we did not have to worry at all. Southcott caterers who work with Eden barn were also incredible and the food was delicious. We wish we could do the day all over again ! Such amazing memories.
