Our Wedding Guests
We want to make sure you all have the best experience when you visit our family farm. We often get asked questions so we thought it may be helpful if we wrote down some of the most common questions asked so that you can then help answer their questions.
Do I need outdoor footwear and/or clothing?
There is no need for you to bring wellies to the farm as there are no muddy areas. The Barn holds its original charm, which means the floor can be uneven in places, so you may want to bring a change of shoes for dancing later on.
The farm is located 800 feet above sea level and while we enjoy amazing views, it can be windy at times. Probably best to bring something like a cardigan or wrap for any potentially chilly evenings.
Can we use confetti?
We love confetti but we’d appreciate it if you could only use the dried petal variety (other types of confetti leave a residue) and only throw it outside.
Are there any local taxi firms?
We have a good selection of local taxis that can be booked on the day of the wedding, but it is also a good idea to book your own local taxi/minibus with a return trip (hotel to barn/barn to home etc). Taxi numbers can be found here.
Unless special arrangements are made by the wedding couple, all our weddings finish at 1 am for carriages.
Dietary Requirements and Food Allergies:
We will have asked the hirer if any of their guests have any dietary requirements or food allergies and we will have prepared special dishes to take account of this. If you do have any food allergies it is worth reminding the staff of this.
If we find any personal belongings, we keep them safe at the barn and usually give them to the wedding couple the following day for safe-keeping. If you have lost anything, please contact us on 01204 852113 or contact the wedding couple direct.
We have coat hooks and lockers are provided in the barn for valuables.
Noise and Live Music:
We love dancing and a great party and nearly all our functions have either DJ’s or live music. Although we are a farm with acres of land, we do have nearby farms and need to consider the impact of any noise levels on our neighbours. Local Licensing Policies only allow music to be played at certain levels in the countryside, so if the music is too loud, we will politely ask for it to be turned down.
We do not tolerate guests bringing their own alcohol to our venue. We are fully licensed and anyone bringing alcohol onto the premises (including car park) will be asked to hand in their alcohol and may even be asked to leave the farm.
