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 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

Perfect venue!
Venue Service

By Tilly Paul, on 23 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Jun 2019

From the moment we stepped foot in the beautiful Eden Barn we knew it was the venue for us. We first booked back in Feb 2017, and since then it has changed dramatically, but all for the better. The barn has been renovated to such a high standard and the attention to detail is incredible, all in keeping with its rustic charm. The views over Eden Valley are spectacular and look fabulous on the photo’s. We also cannot fault Cliff & Carolyn, they are so kind and friendly and always did their best to accommodate any needs we had. They were on hand throughout the day, ensuring our day went smoothly and to plan.. which it did. We can’t thank them enough! We had the most wonderful day in the most perfect venue.

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.

Sorry we missed responding to your very kind review. Your Wedding Day was just perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed hosting it at Eden Barn. You both looked amazing.

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!

The Harker Family, Eden Barn at Eden Barn responded to this review on 20/11/2017 23:09:18

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.

Eden Barn
Venue Service

By Sam & Robert, on 02 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017

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.
