We all have that picture in our head of our dream wedding. How we envisage that perfect day to look. For some of us, it might mean a picturesque fairy tale, surrounded by hundreds of friends, family and well-wishers, in a large wedding venue that caters for our every need.
But for others, it might be something altogether more intimate. A small wedding, a simple affair, with just our closest relatives and best friends to celebrate the occasion with us.
If that second option sounds more like your dream wedding, then our Old Stable Yard may be the perfect small wedding venue for you.
Tie the knot in an historic milking parlour
Our Old Stable Yard is located right next door to our main wedding venue. It’s on-site on our wonderful family farm, and enjoys similar, stunning views right across the luscious countryside.
It’s one of the original farm buildings, and before we converted it, it was used to milk our cows. We’ve kept loads of the original features, including the barn doors the cows used to come through and some of the old equipment used, to give the Old Stable Yard a real, authentic, rustic feel.
Loaded with history and heritage, you couldn’t ask for a more quintessential, rural location to get married – whilst still keeping those modern luxuries we all love!
A gorgeous setting with everything you need for a small wedding
We took the time and effort to carefully convert our Old Stable Yard, so coupled with all the original features is a state-of-the-art venue for your wedding. Fully heated, tastefully decorated, award-winning toilets, and all the AV equipment you might need to show wedding videos or give speeches.
The Old Stable Yard holds up to 60 guests, so it’s definitely for those looking for a smaller place to tie the knot and limit guest numbers.
It’s fully licensed for civil ceremonies and has its own dedicated parking and entrance – so you won’t be disturbed by any other event up at the main farm and barn buildings.
It’s not a place for loud music, a packed dancefloor and late-night partying, but if you’re looking for a smaller, quieter and simpler wedding – with a ceremony and dining experience, it’s the perfect place for you.
Luxurious dining, intimate atmosphere
Our Old Stable Yard is where our on-site catering providers – Stable Yard Catering – hold all their wonderful tasting evenings and special dining experiences. So they are extremely well equipped to host you and your guests for a stunning wedding breakfast after your ceremony.
Our staff take care of all the furniture arrangements whilst you and your loved one mingle with guests. Then we invite you all to sit down in our cosy Old Stable Yard, creating a lovely, intimate atmosphere, complete with all your chosen décor.
You’ll have already selected an absolutely stunning menu with our chefs, tailored to your requirements and blending perfectly with your surroundings. A meal to remember forever.
You’ll enjoy the time with your closest family and friends, blessed with love and happiness, a relaxed, informal affair that you’ll always treasure.
You won’t need to worry about taking to the middle of the room for that first dance or welcoming guests you barely know but felt like you had to invite. You will be with just those who know you best. No worries about being out of place or needing to follow formal rules for weddings.
You can simply sit with all your guests, enjoy amazing food, thank everyone for their time joining you, and then begin your new life together with your loved one. Simple. Lovely.
The perfect intimate wedding, just the way you want it.
