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.

    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.

    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.

    The best venue

    I’m sure every couple believes their wedding venue is perfect, but Eden Barn truly is magical. The venue is stunning, and there has clearly been so much thought into the decoration. The outside area is also fabulous, with plenty of room for games and amazing photos with various backdrops such as the countryside or old shed buildings. But what truly sets this place apart is the warmth and help from the owners - Cliff and Carolyn - they are so kind and go above an beyond to make your wedding magical. Thank you again!

    Fantastic Venue & Lovely Hosts

    My husband & I due to unforeseen circumstances had only 8 weeks to plan our wedding. Having visited Eden Barn and meeting Cliff & Carolyn we knew Eden Barn was the right venue for us. They were so kind and accommodating throughout the speedy process and were fantastic on the big day making sure everything matched our perfect day. The venue itself is beautiful, with just a few personal touches required to make it yours. Eden Barn are partnered with Southcott Catering who complement the venue, great food served and impeccable service. Happy memories for a lifetime.

    The Perfect Day

    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!)

    The prefect day

    Eden Barn was the first venue we visited and with that and meeting Cliff and Carolyn we knew instantly that this was where we wanted to get married. Cliff and Carolyn were always on hand to help with any questions and requests we had. When it came to the decorating we had free reign on how we wanted to decorate the barn. Simple touches allowed the barn itself to shine through. Eden Barn are partnered with Southcott Catering who complement the venue, again great food served and impeccable service throughout. We had the most perfect day. Best venue, amazing hosts and a lifetime of memories.
    Thank you Mr and Mrs Down

    Fantastic venue

    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.

    Everything we ever dreamed of

    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!
