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.

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 fully licenced for indoor and outdoor ceremonies, sale of alcohol, food and entertainment. Choose an intimate indoor ceremony for your nearest and dearest, or a larger outdoor celebration under our gorgeous oak-framed gazebo while enjoying views down the valley. Keep it small and dine in the farmhouse, or hire the barn or 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!

Gosh, what a weekend, what a wedding! We cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you did for us all, absolutely outstanding! The venue was absolutely perfect and nowhere else on earth would have been anywhere near as perfect as there. We feel very blessed we were able to nab that weekend and pull off what we did.

You went above and beyond
Thank you so much for making our son and his new wife's wedding day such a fantastic occasion. From arrival at the house on Friday to leaving on Sunday, the whole experience was amazing. What you have achieved is phenomenal! Your attention to detail in all of the rooms has ensured they each have retained their own character whilst being to the highest standard. Louisa - your professionalism in ensuring every need was anticipated and fully met, while remaining calm and cheerful was exemplary, and the staff were fabulous. You went above and beyond, and we cannot thank you enough.

We recommend this venue to everyone!
We got married at The Ridgeway Barns in July 2022 and genuinely cannot praise the location, house, organisation and Louisa highly enough. Louisa helped us stay on track, liaised with all of our suppliers and manged the deliveries and the timings to ensure our day went absolutely perfectly. We can't thank Louisa, Becky, Alex and their team enough for creating our perfect wedding day. It really was the best day of our lives! We recommend this venue to everyone!

A truly unique wedding
We discovered this amazing venue while it was still undergoing renovations to become a wedding venue. We instantly fell in love with the view from the garden. It also fit our requirement to have a full weekend hire that allowed for a relaxing wedding weekend. Louisa who runs the operation is fantastic and liaises with all of your suppliers giving you the ability to have a truly unique wedding but with less of the hassle.

Our wedding day was made so special
It was a pleasure to work with Louisa and her team as we planned for our wedding in July 2022. The venue is absolutely stunning and our wedding day was made so special. Louisa was on top of everything - very professional and responsive to all our questions. She ensured to coordinate with all our vendors so we didn't have to worry on the day. We wish we could do it all over again! We would have no hesitation in recommending you have your wedding at The Ridgeway Barns.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It never ceases to amaze me the creative ways couples come up with displaying their seating plans - from beautiful stationary, to flowers to surf boards, they can be such a centre piece to greet your guests.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, fun, welcoming, beautiful, natural

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many, and every photographer finds a new way to capture our couples and the venue. I just love watching how the seasons change the backdrop to our oak gazebo, with stunning views down the valley, across farmland and over to Sugar Hill.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

I'm certainly no spotter, but.. KT Tunstall! She headlined at the Summer Breeze festival held here in 2012 (okay, so not a wedding but let's not get too pernickety).

What’s your favourite canapé?

How can you possibly choose? Canapes are amazing!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Personally I don't think you can ever go wrong with a good wood-fired pizza - but what's your favourite topping?!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Don't you just love waking up to those views?! Whether it's the green shoots of spring, the golden glory of late-summer, autumn harvest or a frosty winter monrning, the views from the farmhouse and garden are just magical.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

2022 was our first full summer of weddings and the feedback has been incredible. We've had the privilege of seeing some fabulous couples get married and celebrate here, but the feedback from clients and guests couldn't have been better.
