Bake Barn is a charming wedding venue located on the Fonthill Estate in West Wiltshire Downs, England. Originally a shooting lodge, this property has been carefully renovated to provide a picturesque setting for special occasions. Here, couples will have free reign to create the day of their dreams exactly as they have imagined it.
Facilities and Capacity
Bake Barn benefits from no nearby properties and is situated in a secluded space, which allows events here to continue well into the early hours. It also provides uninterrupted views of the stunning natural surroundings and, at night, starry skies. This property includes an extensive private courtyard, complete with a covered loggia which is licensed to host civil ceremonies. This space provides a shaded space to say ‘I do’ with a warming fire pit located nearby. Afterwards, guests can enjoy a relaxed cocktail hour in the courtyard. As they take in the views and the fresh countryside air, you can make the most of this scenic setting for your wedding photos. The barn is ideal for a seated wedding breakfast and evening reception. Exposed stone walls, a fireplace, timber rafters overhead, and wooden flooring underfoot create a rustic and romantic ambience. This space can be laid out and decorated in the style of your choice, allowing you to create any event theme. The upstairs of the barn can be utilized as a get-ready space, a bar area, or as a relaxation area away from the main event.
The administration at Bake Barn offers this venue as a dry-hire property. This allows you to take complete control of all aspects of your occasion here. You are welcome to provide your own decor and furniture along with all of your own vendors. The owners will supply access to the property several days before your event to allow you ample time to imbue the space with your desired aesthetic. Rental also includes a cleanup day, which means you have plenty of time to relax on-site after your occasion. As the property is located in isolation, there are no noise restrictions or curfews to adhere to during your event here.
We have just relaunced our venue after some renovations and therefore we have great availability for 2021. If you have been forced to change plans, or have just put things off until now, please do get in touch. We'd love to hear from you and love to help you host your post COVID wedding!
