About

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. Our newly created lounge has a boho, relaxed vibe and is available exclusively for the couple to use pre and post ceremony. 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 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.

    Outstanding Venue 🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍

    David & Louise Sharp - Wedding Day at Eden Barn 20/06/22

    What an amazing venue, it was the only venue we viewed and we fell in love with it immediately. The attention to detail was impeccable as was the whole Harker Family and their staff.

    The communication between Eden Barn and ourselves from first booking the venue to the big day itself was outstanding. A very attentive, thoughtful and inspirational team indeed and we would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone.

    If and when we ever decide to renew our vows, it would be here again without a doubt.

    Southcotts Catering were fantastic and their service throughout the day was amazing. All our guests said they’d never had food to this standard at any previous wedding.

    Perfect, perfect and more perfect - thank you.

    A wonderful venue and team

    Our wedding took place at the stunning Eden Barn at the end of April 2022. We can honestly say that the day was perfect. The Harker family and team at Eden Barn were so helpful and friendly both before the wedding in the planning stages, and on the day itself. The whole team really went the extra mile to ensure our wedding ran smoothly and everything went according to our plans. Eden Barn is a magical venue and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

    The Best Wedding experience you could ever ask for

    We got married at Eden Barn on the 23rd October 2021, after 2 postponements, we could honestly not have asked for a more perfect venue or day. Cliff, Carolyn & Andrea made sure the day ran perfectly. All the little details and management of the day was sorted and dealt with so that we had a stress free day. We only needed to visit one wedding venue to know that it was the place for us and we would recommend the whole Harker family to anyone looking at getting married in a stunning venue. All our guests were well taken care of and we all just want to repeat the whole day. Also Southcott Catering who work alongside Eden Barn were amazing and the food was absolutely beautiful. All in all an extremely perfect & magical day.

    I cannot recommend Eden Barn enough!

    I cannot recommend Eden Barn enough! Not only is the venue itself excellent from a setting, aesthetic and functionality perspective, the Harker family running the venue really went above and beyond to ensure us and our guests were well looked after. They'd thought of every detail to ensure a smooth day and genuinely cared that everyone there had a great time.

    Eden Barn's reply:

    What a magical day. It was our absolute pleasure to host your wedding. Love Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea & Julia

    Our Perfect Day

    We got married at Eden Barn on 3rd September and it was everything we could have wanted and more! Cliff and Carolyn were the perfect hosts, taking us through every step of our planning and our day beautifully. Our guests and our suppliers haven’t stopped talking about our day and how beautiful and perfect Eden Barn is. Our day ran so smoothly and it’s a testament to how brilliant the Eden Barn team are at their jobs. Jen at Southcott Catering (the amazing exclusive suppliers) was amazing and our guests also commented on how good the food was (especially the canapés!!). We had the best day of our lives at Eden Barn, we just want to do it all over again!

    Eden Barn's reply:

    It was such a pleasure to host your day Amy & Patrick and see all your planning come to life on the day. Thank you so much for your kind words. Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea & Julia

    From day one they done everything possible to make sure our day was perfect.

    The best venue, team and food!!

    We had the most amazing wedding at Eden Barn, we would 100% recommend this venue to any couples searching for a bespoke day at a stunning venue. From our first visit to the barn, we knew The Harkers were different, the real pride they have for the venue shines through in everything they do, and they were so flexible meaning that we were really able to personalise the day to our preferences. We had to postpone our wedding twice due to covid, and we really appreciated that the Eden Barn team made this as easy as it could possibly be for us, they saved us so much stress. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, and year by year the Harkers have added more special touches to make it even more stunning. The food by Southcott Catering was also exceptional, high end restaurant quality, and we got so many compliments from our guests on both the venue and the food. In short, if you are considering Eden Barn - go for it. The customer service and family mentality of the team make it the most perfect choice!

    Amazing venue

    From our first visit to Eden barn, we knew it was the perfect place for us to tie the knot! What a stunning place.
    A family run business, where you knew you were well taken care of. The team were responsive throughout our planning and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day.
    We had the best day and can’t thank Eden Barn enough!

    Eden Barn's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Rachel. It was such a pleasure to be your venue, as well as getting to know you both & your families through the planning process. We wish you and Tom all the best in the next chapter as you start your married lives together. Remember you are always welcome to come and visit. Love Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea & Julia

    The most beautiful venue

    We got married at Eden Barn in December 2021. It was the first and only venue we went to see and we instantly knew it was the one. The Harker family are so personable and friendly and made sure the whole day went smoothly. The planning process was great and we got some great tips from Carolyn during our final meeting. The venue is also pet friendly and they were so helpful in assisting with Arlo (our Goldendoodle) when he went down the aisle! The caterers they work alongside are also amazing and the food is incredible. We have received amazing feedback from all our guests on the venue and everyone has said ‘how did you find this place’ as it is such a beautiful venue. The fountain lights make the ceremony room and we have some amazing photos and fond memories. The team helped set up the room and the drop off points for all of your wedding things was such an easy process. I couldn’t recommend the venue enough, it truly was a magical day and I wish I could do it all again!

    Wedding day 26/09/2021

    We had the most incredible wedding at Eden barn, the venue is absolutely beautiful. So many incredible touches. After getting our wedding postponed from 2020 we moved our wedding to 2021, and it was worth the wait. The day was everything we dreamed of and more. The Harker family are wonderful and the day ran flawlessly we did not have to worry at all. Southcott caterers who work with Eden barn were also incredible and the food was delicious. We wish we could do the day all over again ! Such amazing memories.

    Perfect wedding day from start to finish!

    Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish. Eden Barn is absolutely magical, with it’s high ceilings, vast hanging fairy lights, beautifully landscaped outdoor space and rustic bar. We knew as soon as we had our virtual viewing that this was where we wanted to get married. It’s very apparent that the barn is family-run, as the Harker’s put so much love and thought into making every small detail impeccable. The “wow-factor” yet intimacy of the venue and relaxed, friendly atmosphere is exactly what we were looking for. We also had the ability to put so many personal touches into our day that we just wouldn’t have been able to elsewhere. We had regular meetings prior to the wedding so that we could ask any questions we had and Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea and Julia were always really responsive. They helped coordinate all of our suppliers and made sure everyone knew when they could drop things off/pick them up. The storage room that you can drop all of your decorations in the day before the wedding is a brilliant idea, as we then had absolutely no last minute stress and could relax/go into full excitement mode. The team even set up all of your decorations for you and you can provide pictures so that they know exactly how you envisioned everything. You also pick everything up the day after your wedding so that you don’t have to worry about anything on your wedding day. The team made sure that the ceremony itself ran smoothly and that we knew where we were supposed to be and what to do. The one thing I would say is that I wasn't the biggest fan of one of our guests being required to play our ceremony music, which I haven't seen at other weddings we've been to which I know cost less than ours did. Everything ran like clockwork and Cliff was very kind in helping organise taxis for some of our guests at the end of the evening. Southcott Events Caterers who cater the barn are also fabulous and helped coordinate everything. We’ve had endless compliments from family, friends and suppliers about how much they loved the venue and how well they were treated by the Eden Barn team. Everyone had an absolutely amazing day celebrating love, family and friendship. We honestly couldn’t have hoped for a better wedding venue run by such genuinely lovely people and we can’t thank you all enough for being a part of our special day. Best wishes, The Gordon’s x

    Thank you Lucy & Patrick for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We absolutely loved hosting your day, with so many memorable moments. Love, Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea & Julia

    10 out it 10 venue!

    It’s obvious the barn itself is absolutely stunning, inside and out. With the new addition of all the landscaping as well outside it is even more perfect!

    Cliff and Carolyn who own the barn are friendly and very easy going and anything we suggested was not a problem! We were able to have everything that we wanted to make our day special!

    I would highly recommend this venue for anyone who wants something personal, rustic and absolutely beautiful!

    Incredible wedding venue

    Eden Barn was the perfect place to get married. The venue itself is beautiful, wonderfully decorated and surrounded by the most glorious scenery. Not only that, but the lovely owners Cliff, Carolyn and their daughters Andrea and Julia are, quite simply, amazing. They are the gurus of all things weddings and provided much needed help and guidance in advance of the wedding and were wonderful on the day itself. It was thanks to them that our wedding went so smoothly. We had the best day and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eden Barn to anyone looking for a superb wedding venue.

    The most magical venue!

    We got married at Eden Barn in October and it was simple perfect in every way. I (the bride) had always dreamed about a barn wedding and Eden Barn exceeded all my dreams. The scenery is breathtaking and the barn itself has such a homely, relaxed feel. Both my husband and I were blown away with how welcoming and helpful Cliff and Carolyn (the owners) were from the first visit to the actual wedding day - even to the day after when we arrived to clear up, everything had been done for us and our items were packed and ready to collect. All of which, removed the stress and worry we can only imagine the bride and groom would usually feel. Cliff, Carolyn and their daughter Andrea felt like an extension of the family with all the planning and making our day perfect, we really can't thank them enough.

    Simply perfect

    Eden Barn is magical. From the minute we first visited the venue, we fell in love with it. It looks special on the pictures but nothing compares to seeing it in real life, it is stunning. And what makes it even more special are Cliff and Carolyn and their family. They really make you feel like you are the only wedding happening and that you are part of their family. Their knowledge and experience meant that everything during the day flowed.

    The Barn is beautiful as it is and means you can dress it up as little or as much as you like. We went very little decoration so the barn could shine through.

    We cannot fault the venue; we and our guests had a great experience and would highly recommend it.
