Dream day at Barn in the fells

Stunning venue in a fabulous Lake District location. Collaborative and flexible team who were open to our ideas and helped our day feel truly personal to us. The DIY set up suited us perfectly as we could choose our suppliers. Really convenient accommodation included with Crow How B&B. Couldn’t recommend this venue highly enough!

Stunning Location, with options for rain or shine!

We always knew we wanted a barn, or somewhere similarly rustic for our wedding and Barn in the Fell ticked all the boxes.
It's just outside Ambleside which meant all our guests had no problems finding accommodation as well as being a stunning location. The Barn itself is a great size, and the ceremony room downstairs is spacious, and has plenty of options on how you want to dress the room.
Sharon and Hogg who own the property were brilliant, they have adapted the barn, building everything you could need in a wedding location and are also open and flexible to ideas on how you might want the place to look for your day. They work with a variety of suppliers and have been incredibly helpful throughout - from letting us sneak in for another look when we visited the location for a second time to helping with suggestions on what other weddings have done and thoroughly taking care of us on the day.
We would 100% recommend - this is a beautiful and relaxed place to get married and we loved every minute.
