The best experience from start to finish

The girls running the Chilli Barn were incredible from start to finish. They made the day so stress free and couldn’t have done more to make it such a perfect day. It’s a beautiful, intimate venue and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

Perfect Intimate wedding venue

We fell in love with the venue due to its small and intimate feel with rustic and country vibes. Perfect.
Loved sitting by the fire pit when we lost the light and watching everyone dancing inside.
All of the staff were lovely and very accommodating. Will forever highly recommend this venue.

Beyond Amazing!!!!

The chilli barn went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. The staff were professional and we were looked after not only on our wedding day but from the minute we booked the venue to help plan our special day to make sure our needs were met. Nothing was ever a hassle to arrange. The venue itself was exceptional and would higher the venue again in a heartbeat. It’s honestly the best venue we could ever imagine and would definitely recommend the venue for anyone that is planning their special day.

Natalie & the staff at Chilli Barn were beyond helpful, and we both came away from the day thinking it honestly couldn’t have gone any better. The venue itself is beautiful and is so well kept, and the organisation & running of the day was amazing. The staff helped us through every step of it all and were so reassuring and kind both on the run up and all day when we were there.
The staff were all so responsive on email, no question was silly or too small, and any questions we had were answered really quickly and we just felt really looked after.
We would recommend the Chilli Barn to anyone. We had the best wedding day ever!

Our wedding day was just amazing, intimate, full of love and joy, the Chilli Barn suited us perfectly

Our wedding day was just amazing, intimate, full of love and joy, the Chilli Barn suited us perfectly and felt so personal to us. The venue setting is beautiful with wonderful views from the inside and out, whatever the weather!
We married when we were restricted to 15 guests and the Chilli Barn perfectly suited a smaller, more intimate wedding, we filled the space nicely and were able to move from the ground to mezzanine levels for different parts of the day.
We got married in October 2020, after originally planning July 2020. The Chilli Barn and the co-ordinator there were fantastic throughout all the changes made to weddings from quickly answering our questions and helping us to make decisions to being wonderfully flexible by allowing us to save a future date while hanging onto an original date, we even chose to bring our wedding date forward to avoid further restrictions and we were fully supported with this, the Chilli Barn were fantastic!
As well as all support with planning being perfect, the staff on the day were brilliant. The day flowed perfectly with no effort required by us the bride and groom!
The food was fantastic, with it all being vegetarian it is brilliant to see a wedding menu with so many vegetarian options to choose from, and even more amazing that it can be made vegan so well too! We opted for a fully vegan wedding and it all tasted amazing.
We would fully recommend the Chilli Barn as a venue!

Lovely venue, friendly and flexible staff, and delicious cakes!

We needed a venue for a short morning ceremony and drinks reception before going to our main venue which wasn't registered.
The place is beautiful, and a great location with country views out the back. We had 30 guests, and requested a late morning coffee, tea and cake reception rather than canapés. The team were flexible and made us lovely cakes!
It wasn't cheap in relation to our budget, and we were only able to hire for just a morning because it was an off-season wedding. But overall it was a lovely place and would definitely recommend for a small wedding.

We had our wedding in May at the Chilli Barn.
We picked the venue because it was scenic due to the proximity to the Chevin and on the more relaxed/smaller side which was perfect for us. We added a marquee to include 50 guests total to increase the guest size slightly.
I can’t explain what an amazing day we had and how much the venue contributed to that.
Wish we could do it again in a heart beat!
Leah was our planner and day of co-ordinator and was great to deal with! Communicated well, efficiently and was happy to accommodate requests.
I would highly recommend the Chilli Barn if you’re looking for a relaxed, intimate space to celebrate!
