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.

10 out it 10 venue!
Venue Service

By Sarah, on 10 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Nov 2019

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
Venue Service

By Chloe and Tristan Banks, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2019

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!
Venue Service

By Stephanie Clark, on 29 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Oct 2019

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
Venue Service

By Maria Yeomans, on 29 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Oct 2019

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
Venue Service

By Elizabeth & Barnaby, on 19 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2019

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
Venue Service

By Morag Love, on 25 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2019

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
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!)

The prefect day
Venue Service

By Rachel and Graeme Down, on 09 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2019

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
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
