The two smaller barns are in contrast to each other and are perfect for indoor welcome drinks, entertainment or ceremonies.

As a destination venue, ferry discounts are also available to guests staying with us.
For weddings, the Farmhouse, Annex and Event Barns are all hired together for four nights from a Thursday through to a Monday with prices starting from £7,000 or 3 nights from a Monday- Thursday (without accommodation) starting from £3000. There is a £500 surcharge for ceremonies. We can offer hire with or without inclusive food & drink package options, so there is something for everyone.

With our booking options, you have plenty of time to set up and make the most of the celebrations, with a relaxed and stress-free mini-break, making memories with family & friends.

Amazing venue and staff

Thank you for everything.
The perfect venue
4 night stay in farmhouse and wedding day
Amazing Wedding Venue
It is a beautiful location and a lot of our guests went so far as to say its the best wedding they had been to because of the setting and the fact that everything was all in one place.
We had an amazing day.
A dream come true
The most amazing wedding I could have dreamt for
The venue itself was perfect, we used the small inside barn and after they had decorated with our settings it was like a fairy-tale... The food was to die for, and the staff so pleasant and we tried to make everyone part of our special day.
We can't thank them all enough for making it truly magical.

Couldn’t have picked a better wedding venue!
Right from the first email to enquire the team was fabulous and bent over backwards to make sure we could view the venue in between lockdowns and then helped us throughout the whole process all the way up to the big day and after! No question was too small and communication from the whole team was more than we could have wished for.
The venue itself is stunning and you can really put your own stamp on it to make your wedding day just what you imagined.
On the wedding day itself Mel and Chloe were amazing at helping us to make sure everything ran smoothly - They both truly made us feel like our day was as important to them as it was to us and that personal touch along with stunning venue is why East Afton is the perfect place to book for your wedding celebrations.

Perfect Wedding Weekend
I first saw East Afton Farmhouse on the Hitched website and it was love at first sight. Set in the picturesque Freshwater countryside, the venue is stunning and felt like a destination wedding on our doorstep (no passport required!). The Farmhouse was decorated for Christmas too which just added to the magic ✨
This venue is adaptable to weddings of different styles, sizes, and budgets. We loved having the entire place to ourselves from Thursday to Monday. A single wedding day flies by so quickly, so stretching it over a weekend was perfect. Plenty of time to set up and pack down and spend time with our guests. There are also fantastic activities available (for kids and adults alike) at Tapnell Farm, their sister company, located a 2 minute drive down the road.
All of the staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful and an absolute credit to the venue. Special shout-outs to Jack and Vania who were amazing on the day ☺️
Chloe and Mel, the dynamic duo, coordinated everything. Chloe was happy to respond to my many emails in the months leading up to the wedding, and was super efficient with it too! She made sure every single question was answered clearly. Mel was by our side over the course of the wedding weekend, and nothing was too much trouble. She had everything under calm control and the day felt relaxed and smooth. These two work so well together, and are expert at what they do. Even as a chronic worrier I felt 100% confident that they had everything in hand. They are both so friendly and fun to work with too!
Thank you so much for hosting the perfect day for us ♥️
The best day of our lives
Would highly recommend East Afton as the best place on the island to get married!
