About Eden Barn

Little Musgrave, Kirkby Stephen
Cumbria, CA17 4PQ

Set in 100 acres of outstanding natural beauty, Eden Barn is an exclusive and intimate licensed Wedding venue that will immerse your guests in the charm and character of Cumbria’s enchanting Upper Eden Valley. From the vaulted ceiling, to the exposed stone walls and limestone flagged floor, our traditional 200-year-old Westmorland stone barn offers a unique rustic elegance that can be tailored to suit any style conscious couple’s theme.   

Enter through our traditional oak barn doors and walk up the aisle surrounded by all the character you could wish for, before you and your partner exchange vows under our enchanting canopy of festoon lights, or under our handcrafted outdoor pavilion with its stunning scenic backdrop. For couples seeking a church wedding, there are several beautiful historic churches nearby. 

In addition to the main barn we have a spacious adjoining Reception/Bar area with a striking floral canopy, cosy seating areas, and timber panelled bathrooms. Guests are also able to enjoy our outside areas, which offer stunning views of the surrounding scenery from a landscaped lawn and patio which feature natural wooden seating and a thatched gazebo.

Eden Barn is run by the Harker family and we are conscious that this is your day and we want to make our venue feel personal and special to you. Catering is provided by our sole supplier Southcott Events, who can create bespoke menus using locally sourced produce, and serve your evening food in style from ‘The Shack’. The accommodation brochure on our website, www.edenbarn.co.uk, highlights the excellent local accommodation available nearby. We also have an on-site business from which you can hire tables and chairs. 

We are located in Little Musgrave, 3 miles from both Kirkby Stephen and Brough, and 4 miles from the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The nearest train station is only 5 miles away and is on the idyllic Settle to Carlisle Railway line. Eden Barn is also close to Appleby and Ravenstonedale.

The Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Beverley & Peter Brummitt, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Aug 2019

There aren't adequate words to express our thanks to Carolyn & Cliff for making our Perfect Day so magical. The venue itself is superb but that alone does not make a wedding; from our first meeting until the day after the wedding their calming and unobtrusive guidance has made the whole process a joy. Their wealth of knowledge of local vendors was invaluable and all their recommendations have exceeded our expectation. As a local couple we very much look forward to meeting up with you again (the coop car park or elsewhere!)

Fantastic venue
Venue Service

By Jamie & Catherine, on 09 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2019

What a find and what a place!! There isn’t enough stars for this venue... Me & my wife booked this venue 3 years before we got married and what a change the place is stunning and cliff and Carolyn couldn’t of done anything else for us, they both went above and beyond and the staff. Our day was perfect and couldn’t of asked for a better day. We will pop in when we are in the area as we love the venue and can’t thank cliff and Carolyn for everything they have done for us. Thank you. Mr & Mrs Dalkin Foster

Everything we ever dreamed of
Venue Service

By Lucy Oldroyd, on 10 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2019

We are so grateful for Eden Barn and everything they did to make our wedding day so special. They went above and beyond to help our plans come to life. From our first, second and third visit, to letting our parents take a sneak peak, to putting us in touch with the most incredible caterers (Southcott Events Catering), to helping us with setting up and all the ideas we had, they were amazing every step of the way. We couldn't recommend the venue enough - it is even more beautiful in person than in photographs, if that's even possible! Cliff and Carolyn are brilliant at what they do and made sure we felt relaxed and supported throughout the whole process. We feel so lucky to come away from our wedding day with such magical memories and so much of that is down to Eden Barn!

Our wedding at Eden Barn
Venue Service

By Ellie and Adam, on 01 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2019

Eden Wedding Barn was a great place to get married, so beautiful and the staff were all really helpful, both in the run up and on the day. We were not from the area and so sought advice on local suppliers and accommodation and Eden Barn were always so helpful going out of their way to give their experiences. We had the best day ever and would definitely recommend! Our prior concerns regarding the venue was accommodation and taxis, and both were reassured and made easy by Eden Barn's advice. We also particularly appreciated not having to pay corkage! Thank you Eden Barn for making our day so special, beautiful venue and beautiful people!

The most wonderful day
Venue Service

By Maddy & Ross, on 31 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 13 Jul 2019

Thank you so much to Eden Barn for helping us organise the most amazing day of our lives. We booked the venue 18 months before our date and, as very organised people, started bombarding Cliff and Carolyn with questions right from the off. Despite all the worry and organisation (given that we live in London and couldn't just drop in for a chat) when we arrived the day before the place (which we had seen originally before all of its improvements) looked amazing and everything seemed so calm. Each step of our day was meticulously taken care of and both our caterers (Southcott) and Cliff & Carolyn made it so easy for us to relax. I have such wonderful memories which i will hold forever and just cannot recommend Eden Barn enough. It is a friendly place that makes you feel like there is a family at its heart but nevertheless run absolutely perfectly. Thank you both so much again for all you did. I shall be recommending you countrywide. The Fennells

Wedding 7 July 2019
Venue Service

By Billy and Emma Poulter, on 12 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2019

What can I say, this was the most perfect venue in every way! It was everything we dreamed of from the moment we first saw it. Aside from it's obvious beauty, one of the reasons we loved it so much was down to Cliff, Carolyn and family. They were so incredibly welcoming and had such a professional yet relaxed and calming attitude from start to finish. A lot of the venues we visited had a very corporate and impersonal feel, but from the first time we visited Eden Barn, the Hawker family made us feel so welcome and accommodating and most importantly, they let us do our wedding, our way! The barn and all the surrounding areas are breathtakingly stunning and so tastefully rustic, decorated to perfection! Our day could not have been more perfect or run more smoothly and we are so grateful to everyone at Eden Barn! Every one of our guests commented on how stunning the venue was and we honestly would recommend Eden Barn to anyone and everyone!

The Perfect Venue
Venue Service

By Hayley Yates, on 26 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

Eden Barn was the most perfect venue for our wedding and from the moment we saw it we fell in love. My husband and I went to view a lot of wedding venues and there was always something that just didn't feel quite right. As soon as we walked into Eden Barn we absolutely loved it and we knew it was the perfect venue for us. The surrounding area is beautiful, perfect for wedding photos and the barn itself is stunning and all of our guests commented on how perfect it was. Cliff and Carolyn were so warm and welcoming from the day we met them and they made planning the wedding so easy and stress free. The day itself ran so smoothly and the Harker family and all the staff at Eden Barn were amazing. Thank you all so much for such an amazing day, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue and Eden Barn will forever be in our hearts xx

Amazing venue
Venue Service

By Rosie and Jonny Pearce, on 25 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

Eden Barn was the first venue we visited and as soon as we left we knew we wanted to get married there. All other viewings arranged were cancelled! The Harker family are so welcoming and we had complete faith in them that they would help to make our day as special as they possibly could. Nothing was too much for them and they were always happy to offer advice but let us do our own thing as well. We also want to mention Southcott, their caterers - outstanding as well, food and service is amazing and again, nothing was too much trouble. I could not recommend this venue enough, it's a hidden gem-get booking before everyone else catches on! Would also recommend The Inn at Brough for wedding party/guests, they were very welcoming and good value for the rooms!

Superb venue with fantastic hosts
Venue Service

By Sarah and Steven Neill, on 17 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2019

The barn is set in a fantastic location (lots of greenery for photographs too) and proved to be the perfect location for our wedding, receiving widespread compliments from our guests. In all our dealing with Eden Barn, we were both incredibly impressed with their approach and helpfulness, which made us confident at every point that we'd made the right decision for our wedding venue, and so it proved. We now have fantastic memories of our wedding and an important factor in this was the friendliness and helpfulness of Eden Barn. Thanks to Carolyn and Cliff for everything you done for us.

The exact wedding day we wanted
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Lennox, on 11 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

Thank you for making our big day extra special with your welcoming and warm manner. Everyone said the barn was beautiful and your approach let us have the exact wedding day we wanted!

Magical location, beautiful venue!
Venue Service

By Kirsty Kelly, on 29 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018

Everything about this venue is utterly incredible! The location is completely breathtaking; the barn, bar and decor are all stunning; and Cliff, Carolyn and Andrea are an absolute dream to work with! We kept our decor to a minimum as you really don't have to do much to this venue as it is perfect as it is! The barn is rustic and beautiful and the new bar has been designed to perfection! The Harker family are the most incredible team, nothing was too much to ask, they were on hand to ensure everything ran smoothly, and their support throughout the planning process and on the wedding day was amazing. They truly are some of the best people you will ever meet and we will feel forever blessed to have met them and to have been lucky enough to have had our wedding at Eden Barn!

Wow, thank you Kirsty for taking time to write this lovely review. You and Mark had the most beautiful Wedding Day and your guests certainly thoroughly enjoyed everything you planned. Your Ceremony in the sunshine was fabulous.

Simply perfect
Venue Service

By Fiona and Joe, on 15 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2017

As soon as we chose Eden Barn for our wedding venue we just had the best time from start to finish! Cliff and Carolyn are very helpful and such lovely, warm and welcoming people that we always looked forward to our trips up to speak about our plans. They were both always full of great ideas and advice and just made the whole process so enjoyable. On the day they helped ensure everything went smoothly and it was such a relief to see a friendly face to settle our nerves just before the ceremony. The barn itself is truly magical and we had so much fun setting it up with friends and family the day before which set the tone for the rest of the wedding weekend. We will never forget the gasps of our guests when they walked in on the day, it made for an unforgettable backdrop. The layout of the barn and the marquee ensured a smooth transition from ceremony to wedding breakfast to the band setting up for the evening music. We also used the farm outbuildings and amazing landscape the barn is set in for our photographs and we could not be happier with how they turned out. There are so many great local suppliers as well as fantastic, high quality accommodation close by so we cannot recommend this venue enough it has everything and more you could possible want or need for an incredible day. Thank you so much Eden Barn.
