Venue hire typically includes 3-day exclusive use of our farmhouse and gardens with accommodation for 15, allowing you to really make the most of your big day! You will have access to the venue from midday the day prior to your wedding, allowing you plenty of time to add those finishing touches, and enjoy a meal or drinks party with your nearest and dearest. On the day of your wedding, pamper yourself in the bridal suite while our dedicated events coordinator ensures the arrival of suppliers and final preparations go smoothly. Hold your ceremony in the farmhouse or outside under the gazebo, before wining, dining and partying the night away in our beautiful gardens. And if one day just isn't enough, then invite your guests back for a relaxed brunch or BBQ the day after your wedding! You will be supported throughout the planning process and on the day of your celebrations by our dedicated events team. You are free to choose your own suppliers including marquee and caterers, but we have established relationships with a great selection of trusted partners to help you decide.

Full Description
The Ridgeway Barns is an exclusive new wedding and events venue nestled in the heart of the North Wessex Downs, on the borders of Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and West Berkshire. We specialise in three-day exclusive hire with farmhouse accommodation for up to 15 guests, to allow you to really make the most of your celebrations. We pride ourselves on creating a home-from-home atmosphere, giving you the time to gather with friends and family, and beautiful spaces in which you can celebrate. Whether you’re after an intimate wedding in the farmhouse, or a marquee to make the most of the stunning views from the landscaped garden, we aim to provide you with the flexibility and support to curate your day ~ your way. And coming in 2023, we are developing our 19th century threshing barn for events up to 120! Our dedicated events team will work with you to curate the day of your dreams, supporting you throughout your planning and working discretely to ensure your event runs smoothly on your big day. We are working with Swindon Register office to become licenced for indoor and outdoor ceremonies, and will be fully licenced for alcohol, food and entertainment from summer 2022. Choose an intimate indoor ceremony for your nearest and dearest, or a larger outdoor celebration under our oak-framed gazebo while enjoying views down the valley. Keep it small and dine in the farmhouse, or hire a marquee to expand your celebrations. And if one day just isn't enough, invite everyone back the next day for a casual brunch or BBQ!

Stunning Location!
What a stunning location to get married! We chose to hold our reception here because the views are incredible, and the Ford’s were extremely supportive in helping us prepare for our big day. We highly recommended the venue to anyone wanting an outdoor wedding in Wiltshire.
