Located just 5 miles from Shrewsbury and immersed in the beauty of Shropshire's countryside, Moat Hall Barns is a sympathetically restored grade II listed historic farm complex.

Set in its own private courtyard and surrounded by a patchwork of grazing pasture, you and your guests will delight in escaping the commotion of everyday life and experience a truly magical setting that is exclusively yours for 3 days.

Whether you're dreaming of a rustic, boho, eco or festival-style wedding, Moat Hall Barns provides the blank canvas to express your creativity and individuality. Featuring many idyllic spaces, couples will be spoiled for choice on where to host their ceremony and festivities.

Dating back to the 18th century, The Top Barn is the oldest and most architecturally stunning of the barns and features tall vaulted ceilings, exposed oak beams and original red brick walls. Enjoy your wedding breakfast and evening entertainment surrounded by loved ones and take in the charm and character of the barn's original features.

As if that wasn’t enough, moving upstairs to the Hayloft you will discover the viewing gallery over The Top Barn that doubles as an intimate ceremony area and later a serene space for your guests to relax.

For an outdoor celebration, The Lake offers a gorgeous waterside gazebo where you can exchange your vows framed by breathtaking views of the rolling hills. Adjacent to The Lake is The Paddock, a lush open space to site an elegant marquee, tipi or bell tents and where guests both young and old can play games.

Moat Hall Barns wholeheartedly invite couples to personalise the venue to bring their unique vision to life.

Amazing Venue and people

My wife and I got married at Moat Hall Barns in June 2023 (Always late leaving reviews). Our experience with the venue, and in particular Ben and Amy, was nothing short of fantastic. The venue is stunning and was exactly what we were after, and nothing was too much trouble for Ben and Amy, who helped us out in so many ways I couldn't list them all. I can not recommend this venue enough for both the location and setting, but also for the people.

Highly recommend

We would highly recommend Moat Hall barns to any couple for their wedding. We had a brilliant experience with Amy and Ben right from the beginning. We are 100% happy that we chose them for our special day. The venue is just stunning and finished to such a high standard. Our guests and I couldn’t have wished for a better day at Moat Hall. We chose to have our ceremony in the beautiful hayloft of the barn. The outside grounds offered amazing space, the children had a lovely day and enjoyed playing outside, as did the adults as we were blessed with a sunny day and enjoyed the outdoor music that we had. We had 80+ guests for our wedding breakfast and this was nicely accommodated in the barn with tables and chairs in a horseshoe format. We had a pizza van outside in the evening and again this just worked so well with the set up and the outside space. Although it is a dry hire venue, the venue is suited to any style that you wish to have for your wedding and the freedom to choose your own suppliers added to the positive experience. We wanted a more laid back festival type wedding but it’s such a beautiful place it would be equally suited to more formal wedding styles if you wished.

This truly is a beautiful, special venue

This truly is a beautiful, special venue.

Amy, Ben and their team have done an incredible job transforming the place into a perfect setting for any wedding or event. We had so many lovely compliments from our wedding guests about the venue and how stunning the barn looked.

We stayed in the new honeymoon suite on site - this is a perfect addition to the venue for newlyweds. It has great amenities, an en-suite with an easy-to-use shower and comfy bed.

We can't praise this place enough and really appreciate all the help from Amy and Ben in the lead up and during our wedding weekend. Kate & Matt B

The Best Day of My Life

Everything was perfect from start to finish - this venue couldn’t have been better with so many different areas and such a beautiful location, everything about it was just stunning. We had the best day of our lives and we couldn’t have pulled it off without such an incredible venue to have it in.

Everything We Dreamed Of And More

Having just had the most magical wedding at Moat Hall Barns, we can't thank Amy & Ben enough. It was everything we dreamed of and more.

The venue has been finished to such a beautiful standard, and they have created a space that any couple would be lucky enough to share such a special day in. All of our guests commented on the character of the barn, the stunning setting, and how approachable both Ben & Amy were.

From viewing during renovations last year & trusting in their vision, we feel so incredibly lucky that we were able to share such a perfect day with our friends and family. A truly unique venue, with such a family feel. We are so happy that we chose it for our special day.

What a venue!

What a venue! Everyone who came was blown away by the beauty of it. We had a very wet day but having the outdoor space undercover was amazing. Being able to look down from the balcony was so fun as we could see everyone having a good time but it was also a nice place for people to have a quiet chat. Amy and Ben have been extremely helpful and recommended lots of the suppliers we used and they were all great. Lots of little gems of wisdom were given when we met with Amy and Ben the day before our wedding, which calmed all our nerves about things coming together. They were so friendly and went the extra mile for us. We would book it again in a heartbeat.
