Best Venue Ever!
This venue is a hidden gem. I am sure as soon as the secret is out it will be fully booked. Family run really does mean the attention to detail, love and care is all there. I did not think of bringing our guests away for our wedding but someone recommend The Barn at Drovers to us. We always wanted a wedding that was different and really the venue makes your wedding. If it's as magical as Drovers then it needs not a lot else. A huge thank you for the care love and attention your put in.

We planned our wedding to be a meeting of cultures. We had loads of guests coming from abroad as well and wanted them to have a beautiful location to come to. And really it was spectacular. The venue has stunning onsite accommodation and we could book the venue and catering for the entire weekend. They allow fire ceremonies and were well versed on Henna evenings and Sangeets. They helped take most of the planning out of the way. And made our day magical.

Stunning Farm Venue
We were after a more relaxed wedding and this certainly fitted the bill. The owners are laid back and never say no. We chose a spot on the estate no one had gotten married in before. Although it presented logistical challenges they totally made it happen and it was indeed magical. The food is also a huge highlight. All the food is cooked fresh on site and the guests see the amazing fire cooking. All our guests said it was the best food they have EVER had at a wedding

Best Day Ever
Cannot recommend this venue more highly. It's not a wedding factory with loads of dos and dont's. They really listen and help make your dream a reality. The food is amazing. Very flavourful and memorable. And the best bit we could bring our dog down the aisle. Dogs are welcome and we even got to take pics with the alpacas
