The wedding celebration then takes a truly epic twist as the party moves on to the Old Barn, a rustic 19c former dairy, implement sheds and pig styles which have been lovingly converted into a unique event venue. With several fireplaces, original features, cigar lounge and a large dining area with rustic wooden tables and chairs where you and your guests can party the night away in comfort, or make s’mores over the fire under the stars and listen to the owls hoot. With four large fireplaces (three indoors and one large fire pit outside) the Old Barn is a cosy haven. perfect for winter celebrations.

Guests can stay within staggering distance of the bar in one of twenty basic, but comfortable rooms at the Old Barn which are able to sleep up to 75 people in total. Your four-legged family are welcome too, as long as they are well behaved and kept under control, there are farm animals on site.

The Old Barn & Forest venue can be described as a laid-back party venue that is ideal if it’s a festive atmosphere you are longing for.
