Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Kesri Smolas (Owner)
Hi there, if you like our photos you should definitely come visit as the photos do not do it justice. It is truly magical here on the Farm. A perfect venue for the wild and free at heart. The gypsy, the mermaid and the bohemian in us all. We created the idea of wedding weekends based on our own wedding. It was so magical and it lasted for the whole entire weekend!! We work with our couples to create a weekend that really fits our couples vision and dreams.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The Barn. I designed and decorated the interiors which it has won awards for and has been featured in magazines. The lights are old olive buckets and the ceiling is corrugated iron with lightning that reflects off it. There are huge exposed beams and lovely chalkboards hung on meat hooks. Its well insulated and warm with underfloor heating and two massive woodburners at each end I love the polished concrete floors. The bar is an old shop counter. Its got an industrial, rustic kinda vibe thats Uber cool

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The whole business really we built from nothing and now have many repeat guests and 5 star reviews on trip advisor. We look forward to extending this success to weddings
