About

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.

Services Offered

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.

    Beautiful Venue and Excellent Experience Overall

    I had such a wonderful experience working with Vicky and Charlie to rent the Bake Barn for my wedding reception. I live in the US and they were so helpful with suggesting suppliers, arranging time to show me the venue, staying in touch and remaining flexible with multiple date changes due to COVID. The barn itself is stunning and a perfect blank slate to dress up as much as you want for your event, although it really doesn't need much at all. I also loved that it has three unique spaces all within the same venue (main hall, front courtyard, and beater's loft) and allows for a lot of creativity.

    The place is magical


    Our wedding was due to take place in April 2020 but due to Covid we had to postpone it 4 times finally landing on a weekend in August this year. It seemed a very stressful year but knowing we had Bake Barn to look forward to kept our spirits up and it didn’t disappoint. The place is magical, the views are stunning, and it works so well with the loggia area where we had chillout furniture with the heaters overhead, a band playing in the next door area, a lovely marquee on the lawn for our dinner, and the bar and dancing in the main magnificent room. The weather was kind to us and we danced until dawn (it’s wonderful not having time or noise curfews). Then everyone came back for pizzas the next day and lay around on the grass soaking up the rays of the sun whilst no doubt nursing their hangovers! Vicky and her team at Fonthill couldn’t have been more helpful. They were always there to help us whatever the request, and without them Im sure the weekend wouldn’t have been the success that it was. Thank you so much Team Fonthill. Adam & Alice (August 2021)

    It is a very special place

    We cannot thank Vicky and everyone at the Fonthill Estate enough for all their help in the lead up to our wedding. They were hugely generous with their time and made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. Bake Barn is just the perfect venue, so accessible, the most beautiful surroundings and the facilities are second to none! It is a very special place and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding or party venue. Thank you!

    Issy and Hugh

    nothing was too much trouble

    "Once we found the Bake Barn we knew it was the venue for us instantly! We actually planned the rest of our wedding around it. We absolutely loved that it was a blank canvas that we could personalise to our tastes, and the setting was simply stunning. From the moment we booked the staff were helpful and accommodating, and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for helping us create the wedding we had dreamt of.
    Mr and Mrs Booth"
