Full Description
A secluded, rural location set in the Olchon Valley on a 70 acre farm with dramatic mountain backdrop. The folding glass doors of the barn open up onto a pretty lawn, orchard and wildflower meadow with plenty of space for guests to explore. The super friendly team at Lower House Farm have a flexible approach, allowing you to put your own stamp on the venue and create the day you’ve dreamed of. With a dedicated wedding coordinator to help you plan the day, they can offer as much or as little support as you would like. Exclusive to you, the beautifully restored, 17th century barn with vaulted ceilings, flagstone floors and oak timber beams has space for up to 120 guests to feast on long wooden tables with sheepskin adorned benches. Once transformed for the evening, there is capacity for up to 150 guests to party the night away. Using their home reared meat as well as locally sourced produce, your wedding feast will be cooked in the woodfired outdoor kitchen. Whilst your guests mingle, they can watch the kitchen magic happen and enjoy wafts of succulent joints of meat and charred seasonal veg being prepared. Take a stroll to their own secret waterfall, play lawn games in the huge field bordering the Olchon Brook, have photos with the dramatic mountain backdrop and even toast marshmallows around the firepit come sunset. A wildly beautiful space to host a day to remember. Book a stay at their nearby country farm house, Old Great Marlborough, sleeping 22 and make the most of the woodfired hot tub and indoor swimming pool!

The very best!
We had the most magical day at Lower House Farm. Emily was amazing with all the planning and on the day, so everything was just perfect. We got married on a sunny November day and were able to have a beautiful ceremony in the open barn. For anyone wanting a more sustainable wedding with the most incredibly delicious locally sourced food - this is the venue for you. Could not recommend it enough!

The most perfect wedding venue
Words cannot describe how wonderful Lower House Farm is as a wedding venue. It is simply perfect! We got married here in early November 2021 with a ceremony in the yard area and a fantastic meal inside the barn. Emily is a fantastic wedding coordinator and made sure the day went smoothly. From our initial contact to the day and beyond she has been there answering questions and helping us to plan our perfect day, nothing was ever too much trouble! The food was fantastic, head chef Esther and her team created an incredible meal not to forget the delicious canapés to begin and pizzas in the evening. They catered for complex dietary requirements and the food was enjoyed by all. The vegetarian option (butternut squash Wellington) was a particular hit amongst our guests! The drinks were fantastic too with a delicious hot honey and gin drink that warmed everyone up, local wines and bubbles and much more. A massive thanks to the bar team, led by Dougal, who were so incredibly friendly. We used lots of the recommended suppliers who were all fantastic too. Thank you Lower house farm for our perfect wedding day. We wouldn’t change a thing and would recommend you to anyone considering getting married in the area. We cannot thank you enough.

The food was quite exceptional
We had our wedding in August 2021 and it surpassed our expectations. The setting and old barn at Lower House Farm were absolutely stunning. The food was quite exceptional- by far the best mass catered food we have ever eaten and lots of our foody friends agreed. Emily was lovely and helpful all the way through the process and was always a sensible calm voice- thank you Emily! The rest of the staff were great too.

Most Fantastic Venue Ever
We had the most wonderful day at Lower House Farm celebrating our marriage. It is the most beautiful venue, and we were blessed with fantastic weather, which really made the most of the superb scenery. So many of our friends and family commented that it was the best venue they had ever been to and we agree! The food was delicious, and all of our guests with dietary requirements were so well catered for. Emily and the team were so wonderful every step of the way, and made our day run seamlessly. They liaised with our band and travel company which took pressure off on the day. Every question and request was well received and we would like to thank them for every effort they made in making our day so special. We cannot recommend this venue enough!

Amazing venue!
Had our wedding on 27th July 2021 after two previous failed dates during the pandemic. Emily and her team were so cooperative throughout the rearrangements and were super relaxed and easy to deal with. The day went perfectly thanks to Emily and her wonderful team. The venue setting is spectacular and the food was exquisite!! We’ve had sooo many compliments on finding such a unique and beautiful venue. Thank you Lower House Farm for giving us the best day ever.

The Dream Wedding Venue
Having postponed from August 2020, we've still got our big day to look forward to this year. Lower House Farm was the first wedding venue we visited when we started planning; within 5 minutes of meeting the team and looking inside the beautiful barn, we knew it was the one. It’s in the perfect location - both of our backgrounds are English/Welsh, so to have found such an idyllic, stunning, modern venue right on the border, with breathtaking views of the Black Mountains and a waterfall, made us feel like the luckiest couple in the world. You also won’t find another venue that can offer such incredible food, with Jake on hand to create a bespoke menu for your day. Who could resist the opportunity to wow their friends and family with a delicious feast served up from a wood-fired kitchen?! It’s one of the things we are most excited about for our day. If all that wasn’t enough, there’s also Emily. She really goes above and beyond to put your mind at ease, offer advice and generally make the whole process a million times smoother. If it wasn’t for her, there’s no way I would believe that planning the wedding of our dreams would be possible during a global pandemic.
