About East Afton Farmhouse

With a history of epic celebrations, East Afton Farmhouse is the ideal wedding venue for a big, country celebration on the Isle of Wight.

Exclusive hire of East Afton Farmhouse offers everything you need for your wedding, with the comfort and convenience of a private venue, that feels like a home away from home, where a celebration of the joining of two families can last more than just a day. The Event Barns overlook a private courtyard, and are surrounded by East Afton’s Farmhouse, Country Annex, landscaped gardens, and the arable fields of the neighbourhood farm.

The venue can accommodate up to 170 day time guests and 200 evening guests. Hire includes tables and chairs plus cloths, all you need to bring in are your own personal touches and chosen décor. All three event barns at the venue are licensed for ceremonies. With packages now available, couples can choose to dry hire the venue or have us put lots of it together for you! We have something to suit everyone's requirements.

A new large wedding/events barn will be opening at East Afton Farmhouse from summer 2021, increasing the capacity of the venue and providing more versatile indoor facilities for year-round weddings. This is the perfect spot for the main reception and evening entertainment.

Overlooking the courtyard and in keeping with the Farmhouse and other two barns, the new barn will be a mix of rustic brick and timber cladding with a vaulted ceiling and restored wagon wheel chandeliers. Large glass windows and doors will open onto the stone courtyard, giving a bright and spacious feel. Complete with a commercial kitchen and further toilet facilities, there will also be underfloor heating and an 8 metre long bar. The barn will be available for use on its own, as well as part of the mid-week venue only wedding option or the exclusive wedding package.

We then have two smaller barns- one original stone barn with an abundance of character and charm, boasting original beams and rustic chandeliers, and another more modern with bifold doors opening out onto a sun deck. The more modern barn also includes its own bar, restrooms, heating and lighting.

    A perfect rural wedding location

    We held our reception at East Afton in September and the groom’s family stayed in the Farmhouse. It makes for a perfect rural wedding location whatever the weather (ours was wet!) - great set-up for a party with plenty of room for dining, dancing, a kitchen suitable for caterers, lots of nooks and crannies for people to explore. Chloe went out of her way to help us on the day, including ferrying people back and forth from the venue to the after party when taxis were scarce!

    Great venue for a large family gathering too - cosy Farmhouse feel with plenty of dining space and garden for kids to explore. Highly recommend!

    East Afton Farmhouse was perfect for our wedding r

    East Afton Farmhouse was perfect for our wedding reception - we were able to personalise the already beautiful setting to build our dream country wedding. The old barn was a brilliant bar and dancing area, the new barn a great place for our wedding breakfast and the front lawn ideal for a champagne marquee! The facilities in the Farmhouse topped it off enabling our family and wedding party to enjoy some luxury over the wedding weekend. We would highly recommend !
