The most amazing experience
Amazing venue and staff
The venue is beautiful, with everything you need on site (including accomodation for main party) and they are very willing to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it, with plenty of opportunities to put our own stamp on the day.
We had regular meetings with the venues own wedding co-ordinator who was a great help in making sure we had considered everything, and kept everything running on the day.
The food was incredible - many of our guests are still talking about it - and the portions were more than generous. They also make sure that food is local and sustainable.
10/10 would recommend. Everything went perfectly to plan for us and we had an incredible day, largely thanks to the venue and the atmosphere they provided.

From our first greeting with Donna to meeting the rest of the team, they are simply the most helpful and personable staff we have ever come across.
The venue is beautiful. The food is outstanding. Both were commented on by our guests. We opted for the farmhouse dining option which gave our wedding the relaxed atmosphere that we craved.
The tasting menu day is an experience in itself and allowed us to try food and drink a plenty to help us in making our menu choices.
Donna and the catering team allowed us to swap some things in and out of the menu and were flexible in all our requests.
The team (especially Tracey) kept in regular contact with us and ensured we were fully prepared and nothing was forgotten on the day.
Despite the weather on our wedding day being a washout, our photos were not impacted as Harelaw Farm has so many beautiful spots indoors to get those ideal wedding shots.
The team were also so accommodating for our entertainment. We had family and friends perform at the evening reception - all of whom were fully supported by the staff, from setting up to transitioning and between sets.
Donna and the team helped make our day the most perfect day we could have imagined, we feel so lucky that we found their venue. Look no further than Harelaw Farm for your Wedding day. We would do it all over again!!
