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.

The most magical venue
Venue Service

By S&W, on 18 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2017

We had our wedding at the end of October, which was a gamble given the weather at this time of year, but it was a wonderful day because the setting of Eden barn is so beautiful, the views are spectacular and the barn itself is just magical. We only viewed one venue and we immediately felt it was perfect. We were able to really put are own stamp on it, but the decor already in the barn is so great that we didn't have to add much. Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea and Ed were so helpful in recommending suppliers and are the warmest, kindest family that are amazing to get to work with. We can't thank them enough. We can't recommend this venue enough!

Thank you for kind comments and we so enjoyed hosting your glamorous and colourful Wedding. You managed beautifully to honour your families' cultures and yet your own personalities shone through.

We knew as soon as we visited Eden Barn that it would be the right venue for us, we even contemplated if it was worth while visiting other venues after we’d been to view it. Our Wedding last month was everything we’d hoped for and more. Cliff, Carolyn & family who own and run the venue are a pleasure to work with and are the most welcoming hosts. Their barn is immaculately kept with beautiful features such as the huge waterfall of lights which hangs down the main barn wall. With such a well designed blank canvas, it was easy for us to imagine how we could add our own DIY touches. We can’t thank the Harker family enough for all of their help during the run up and on the day!

Cliff & Carolyn, Owner at Eden Barn responded to this review on 03/11/2017 18:18:02

Thank you for your very kind comments. You & Robert and your family were delightful to work with. The amount of hand illustrated preparation you did was outstanding and we will certainly recommend your services to couples. It was totally unique to see a bride jump onto the drums of her father's band, half way through her first dance! Robert and your guests were well entertained with this surprise.

Perfect - Could Not Have Been Better
Venue Service

By Tom & Kate, on 22 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017

Eden Barn was the perfect venue for our small, intimate wedding. As soon as we viewed the venue, we knew that this was the place that we wanted to be married. The barn itself is in a quiet, village location with a stunning backdrop of rolling hills and countryside. The barn is a beautiful, one of a kind rustic building in and of itself and provided an ideal canvas for us to add our own personal touches. The grounds allowed our photographer to capture a number of unique and interesting photographs. Because the barn provides access the day before and after the wedding, suppliers and ourselves were able to set up and clean up at our leisure, allowing us to relax and enjoy our day. Facilities are excellent with clean and stylish permanent toilets, dance floor area, ample parking and a discreet marquee for the use of outside caterers. There is also a hand built bar area available but we did not make use of this for our wedding. The icing on the cake is the super helpful and friendly owners, Cliff and Carolyn, who could not do enough to help make our day as special as can be. They helped to suggest suppliers, troubleshoot problems, provided tea and biscuits and even climbed up ladders to help us to finish decorating the venue. Thank you for making our day so perfect.

Cliff & Carolyn, Owner at Eden Barn responded to this review on 09/01/2018 13:25:45

Thank you Tom and Kate for a wonderful review which also described the venue in such detail. You two were an absolute joy to work with as you were so enthusiastic and that enabled you to create such an interesting and fun Wedding Day. The vintage styling looked superb and you both looked amazing, well done!

Just wonderful in every way
Venue Service

By Sarah & Matt, on 10 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2017

A beautiful boutique barn, a backdrop of gorgeous countryside and some truly amazing hosts make the perfect recipe for a wonderful wedding venue. From the moment we stepped foot in Eden Barn we knew it was the venue for us. I tried my best to hide my excitement and keep myself in check while Cliff and Andrea gave us a guided tour but inside I was already picturing our wedding. Luckily my other half felt exactly the same and we drove home with huge grins on our faces! Within a week or so of our visit we had the registrar booked and had secured our date. Cliff and Carolyn were with us every step of the way and couldn't have been more helpful. They have great relationships with a number of local suppliers and tons of recommendations to get you started. We wanted our wedding to be fun, relaxed and represent us as a couple - they went out of their way to help us make this happen. We cannot thank them enough for being so accommodating and making our day so special.

Stunning
Venue Service

By Lauri & Asa, on 10 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

When we first visited to Eden Barn we were stunned by how beautiful it is and how warmly we were greeted by Cliff and Carolyn. It has a unique charm which we found difficult to find anywhere else. The lights around the barn are a lovely touch along with a huge backdrop of lights which was an elegant background during our ceremony and looked beautiful behind our top table. Each time we visited more charming touches had been added and we were given so much flexibility by Cliff and Carolyn to dress the venue and create our unique wedding day. The Bar area is amazing as it is separate from the main barn which has a different look but it is still in keeping with the rustic feel, from the beautiful handmade oak bar to the low hanging lights. Me and my husband are quite laid back and we found that Eden Barn has a very relaxed atmosphere. We managed to achieve everything we wanted to in hiring Eden Barn, if not more and the day couldn't have been more perfect. We even had a fire pit out on the front lawn which our guests loved. A lot of our guests commented on how the whole day from the venue to the decorations suited us both to a T. The location is a perfect backdrop for wedding photographs from the country landscape to the rustic barn walls and there are plenty of places around the grounds to find amazing backdrops. All these things wouldn’t have been achievable if we’d decided on a different venue. We can't thank Cliff, Carolyn and their daughter Andrea enough for being the perfect hosts and for all their help in making our day so special. We wish we could relive the whole day again!

Thank you both for your very kind comments. You planned your Wedding Day so perfectly and selected your own suppliers carefully which created a fabulous, relaxed and fun day for your guests so well done. You both looked stunning and we so enjoyed seeing your gorgeous wedding photos.

Married at Eden Barn August 2017
Venue Service

By Elizabeth & Michael, on 13 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

We got engaged in December 2016 and decided we didn't want a long engagement and wanted to get married the following summer, we also decided we wanted our wedding to be completely DIY and in a beautiful countryside setting- we set the bar high from day one! Eden Barn was the first venue we visited, from the moment we pulled into the drive we knew it was the one for us. Cliff and Carolyn showed us around and embraced our ideas fully, we didn't have any outside help and did everything ourselves with a lot of help from friends and family. We thought we would struggle to find a venue that would allow us to do this but Cliff and Carolyn supported us completely and allowed us to have the wedding of our dreams! Eden Barn is a beautiful venue with amazing owners who will help you create a truly personal wedding day. Thank you!

Cliff & Carolyn, Owner at Eden Barn responded to this review on 15/12/2017 18:58:36

Thank you Elizabeth and Mike for your wonderful review. We will always remember your Wedding for it's amazing music provided by your friends who were so talented. You organised a beautiful Wedding Day which truly was so personal to you both and you both looked fabulous!

Just Amazing
Venue Service

By Matt and Ellen Robinson, on 17 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

The Eden Wedding Barn was the perfect venue. Set in stunning countryside, the venue was immaculate and beautiful. The facilities - toilets, catering, parking - were all outstanding, but perhaps the crowning reason why this venue is brilliant is Cliff and Carolyn. They couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, and did a brilliant job on the day making sure that everything ran smoothly whilst managing to stay in the background. They were a joy to work with, and if you book this amazing venue you won't b disappointed.

Cliff & Carolyn, Owner at Eden Barn responded to this review on 18/12/2017 11:54:09

Thank you Matt and Ellen for your lovely review. Your Wedding Breakfast looked spectacular with the large picnic baskets full of local produce to accompany your meal. There were so many personal touches which your family assisted with and which your guests so enjoyed. Your photographer really did capture some fabulous images of you both.

Our perfect day
Venue Service

By Natalie, on 06 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017

We were fortunate enough to be the first legally married couple in Eden Barn. We fell in love with the barn from the moment we saw it and knew it would be the perfect wedding venue for us. Cliff and Carolyn were marvellous throughout, and were always full of helpful advice and recommendations. The barn and the surroundings are beautiful and as the venue is DIY couples are able to put their own touches to their day which makes it all unique. Thank you Cliff and Carolyn for all of your help and the most amazing day ever!

Cliff & Carolyn, Venue Owner at Eden Barn responded to this review on 06/06/2017 18:54:50

Thank you for your review which is appreciated. Your Wedding was beautiful, romantic and fun and it was our pleasure to be involved. As the first couple to get married in Eden Barn, your Wedding will be fondly remembered by the Harker family. Wishing you a very happy marriage.

absolutely perfect in every way

By Katie & Stu, on 30 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016

From the moment we pulled into the driveway of Eden Barn, we knew it was the venue for us to host our wedding reception. The Barn was exactly what we wanted in terms of location, scenery and a laid back atmosphere. We knew even before getting out of the car that it was for us! The venue played a huge part in the success of our wedding and our friends and family are still talking about Eden Barn, and I think that is a huge testament to what Cliff & Carolyn have achieved. Cliff and Carolyn couldn’t do enough for us, they were always on hand to answer any questions we had big or small and were so helpful, dishing out buckets of advice and assistance to the lead up of the wedding. Cliff and Carolyn helped us with every aspect of the day and without their help, our wedding day wouldn’t have been half as good. Thank you Cliff & Carolyn! We particularly loved Eden Barn as we could put our own stamp on the day and decide on every aspect ourselves (including the caterer etc). Having a beautiful venue like Eden Barn meant we could truly make it personable to us. From the beautiful front lawn to the amazing (handmade by Cliff!) oak bar, the Barn surpassed our expectations and we were honoured to be the first couple to host our wedding reception in Eden Barn. It truly was the most perfect venue we could ever have imagined and loved every second of our special day. Thank you so much Cliff & Carolyn, for helping us make our wedding day so wonderful and one to remember for many years ahead. Thank you for everything. Katie & Stu xx

Cliff & Carolyn, Owner at Eden Barn responded to this review on 30/08/2016 20:33:34

Thank you Katie & Stu for your kind comments and we hope you had a wonderful honeymoon. You both worked hard in the lead up to create your own relaxing and fun day for your guests and it was so worth it on your Wedding Day. You two looked fabulous and we wish you every happiness as 'Mr & Mrs'. Thank you for choosing Eden Barn for your Big Day and we were so pleased that you two were our first clients as it was such a memorable time.
