Full Description
We aim to 'swim against the tide'! Purpose built on our family farm, we offer Harefield Barn for an extended hire period, allowing you the freedom to use the Barn as a blank canvas for your own ideas. A truly year round venue, the 'inside / outside' design gives you a free flowing space to enjoy our stunning country location and views in the summer, but also has underfloor heating and all 'mod cons' so you're never compromised by the British weather! What's more, you get to choose your own suppliers giving you the freedom to style your wedding, your way. And don't be afraid of hidden extras - we give you a simple all inclusive price* for the venue and the equipment you see when you visit to make your budgeting easier. So do come and see what we have to offer - however many pictures we take, everyone says "it looks so much better in real life"! We look forward to meeting you soon.

My daughters wedding
Originally booked for the 7th November my daughter, her husband, the wedding planner and the fabulous Harefield Barn, organised and put on that wedding in four crazy days. Obviously the current restrictions somewhat shackle what this superbly located venue is no doubt capable of. The building, setting and the friendly and organised staff couldn’t do enough, which only helped with laid back atmosphere of the day. Nothing was too much trouble and we’d recommend them to everyone.

Sensational Wedding Day
We couldn't of dreamt of a better wedding day, in such sensational circumstances! We decided to move our wedding day forward to beat the government wedding limit guidelines and Deborah and Robert, along with our incredible suppliers, couldn't do enough to make our day a total dream. Beautiful venue inside and out, sensational views and complete tranquility.

"Support, understanding, and a beautiful venue!"
"It goes without saying how hugely appreciative we are for everything you've done to make this happen. The start of our married lives together and the start of weddings again at Harefield Barn.... At Last! Thank you again for your support, understanding and for providing the most beautiful venue"

A photographers dream wedding venue
Having photographed two weddings at Harefield Barn now I cannot wait to return next year for many more. With beautiful rural views, a stunning clock tower for outdoor weddings and plenty of natural light inside, the venue really ticks a lot of boxes. The neutral décor and high-quality finish of Harefield Barn will really lend itself to any wedding colour scheme. From the impressive solid wooden bar with roaring open fire to the spacious Bridal prep room and light and airy main reception room, everything has been designed with weddings in mind. The owners Deborah & Robert are incredible friendly and obliging, not just to the couples and their guests but also to the suppliers, going above and beyond to ensure a perfect wedding day for their Brides & Grooms. I would highly recommend taking the short drive out from Exeter to view this rural venue as photos simply don't do it justice, and that is something coming from a photographer!

At Last!
Married in August after a 4 month postponement due to the pandemic. Thank goodness we chose Harefield Barn because not only is it the most stunning and beautifully designed venue in a gorgeous countryside location, but Deborah could not have been more helpful in making arrangements, navigating the way through the ever changing government restrictions for weddings and ultimately enabling us to have the loveliest, most memorable afternoon imaginable!

Open Evening 6-9pm

Come and join us for a glass of mulled cider whilst you look around the Barn and chat to a selection of fabulous local suppliers - and don't forget the fireworks at 8 pm!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Too many lovely ones to choose from, but probably the best are the ones are those where there is a bit of a problem that we manage to solve without the bride and groom even knowing. After all, their day should be one full of nothing but happy memories!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Keep it simple, keep it fun!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Instead of a book, guests wrote their good luck messages on Jenga blocks, so now, whenever the bride and groom play that game they will be reminded of their wedding.
