The Cider Barn is a charming, rustic wedding venue.
An old agricultural stone and thatched barn, sheltered among the woods and fields of the Dillington Estate and with views far across the rolling Somerset countryside, it is a magical and romantic barn, and a beautiful, informal venue for a country wedding.
The natural beauty of the barn with its old wooden beams, stone walls and exposed thatch, has been adorned with fairy lighting and rope metal chandeliers, and the overgrown walled garden has been cleared of brambles and nettles to create a spacious and sunlit garden.
It can comfortably take 100 for a sit down dinner, and we opened it with a sit down meal for 140 at our own wedding, so with a little effort more than 100 guests can also be accommodated. Obviously
more still on a standing only basis (e.g. if you are using food trucks for catering).
As we can attest first-hand it is a truly magical place to get married!
We can host weddings in the barn of up to 120 guests. For larger weddings, if you're a member of the Church of England, Whitelackington’s church of St. Mary’s is right next door and can accommodate up to 140 guests. We would be hapy to introduce you to the local vicar.
The catering is an essential part of any wedding day, and to make sure you can arrange the day you want, we are happy to work with whichever caterer you choose. We also have relationships with a few local caterers and will happily introduce you so you can get quotes and a feel for their offerings.
We have some lovely holiday cottages across the Estate. They are listed on our website, including the Dairy House (sleeps 14), Atherstone Farmhouse (sleeps 10), Atherstone Farm Cottage (sleeps 4) and Orchard Cottage (sleeps 6-8). We can also recommend a list of other local places to stay on booking, or provide space for guests to camp / glamp.
We would be delighted to host you - please do get in touch!
