Full Description
On site is a beautiful pond, perfect for some after wedding photography, rolling hills and vast views across Dorset- it truly is the most romantic, idyllic spot. We'd love to share it with you for your special day! Hope Farm Barn is a 19th century Farm House, complete with a large Coach House. We converted the Coach house to accommodate weddings and have also added our rural barn to now host a variety of wedding sizes. We offer both ceremony and reception facilities here at Hope Farm. Depending on the size of your ceremony, we can accommodate 60 people in our stunning Coach House, which has beautiful views across the valley. Alternatively, if you're planning for your ceremony to be larger, you can have an outdoor ceremony for 120 people, underneath out beautiful arbour, surrounded by breath taking views. Our rustic barn also holds 120 guests for an indoor ceremony, with it's lovely floor to ceiling windows, capturing every bit of the beauty around us. It's certainly a magical place to say I do. All of the furniture for the ceremony is included in the price. When you've said I do and you're ready to celebrate with your loved ones, you can start married life with your reception in our converted barn. Hope Farm Barn is the perfect blank canvas for you to decorate and put your own stamp on! Whether you've got lots of ideas in your head, or a Pinterest board of ideas, there is no limit to how you can turn the barn into your dream venue! Inside you'll find a fully stocked bar, including your favourites, to be run throughout your evening reception as a cash bar by the Hope Farm team. We can also supply drinks for toasts or wines during the day, at competitive prices, including glasses or you can bring your own table wine – no corkage charge! You would be welcome to use our horse box to serve welcome drinks to your guests. All furniture is included in the hire charge. We've collected many props and equipment over the years, and you'd be more than welcome to use

The best day ever...
Where to start- we got married here last weekend, and it was the most perfect day we could have imagined. Hope Farm is a hidden gem , Beautiful setting, surrounded by the rolling hills of the Jurassic coast, so much love for this place. Lots of our friends and family complimented the venue and have said it’s the best wedding they had been too!! Sue and the team couldn’t have been anymore helpful, from start to finish. Sue was always on hand to help and answer any questions we had. I literally can’t thank them enough for their hard work and effort! Much love Mr and Mrs Patton xx
