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.

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.
