Set on a small working farm in the glorious Dorset countryside, Stockbridge Farm Barn is the perfect setting for your idyllic rural wedding! This fabulous venue is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships, allowing you to celebrate your whole day in one place.

Our stunning Medieval Barn has changed very little from its original state, with beautifully preserved rustic beams and exposed stone. It is simply beautiful, traditional and timeless. Flower wheels are suspended from the exposed wooden beams and it is beautifully lit with soft up-lighting and festoon lights criss-crossing the vaulted ceiling. It is carpeted throughout, with a large 18ft wooden dance floor.

The barn can comfortably accommodate 180 seated guests or if you’re planning a larger celebration you can always opt for an adjoining marquee. There is a spacious fully equipped kitchen adjacent to the Barn together with an adjoining bar and snug (we do not charge corkage).

Outside there is a large grass area, perfect for reception drinks and garden games. In front of the farmhouse, the pretty flower garden offers a picturesque setting for your wedding photos, or you may prefer to use the beautiful countryside surrounding the Barn as your backdrop.

The versatile space gives you the freedom to create the wedding of your dreams, with our friendly team on hand to offer help and advice when you need it. We can put you in touch with some fabulous recommended suppliers, or alternatively you are very welcome to source your own.

We have a delightfully converted ‘Milking Parlour’ adjacent to the Barn that is often used as a Bride's Room, where the Bride can escape to if she wishes to change, refresh her make-up or just take a few moments for herself on the big day!

We also have two beautifully appointed Oak Shepherds Huts available to hire for the Bride and Groom or guests as accommodation. They are both very well equipped, extremely comfortable and simply lovely!

For more information please visit our website and contact 'Cherry', who will be delighted to help you.

    Totally awesome!

    We held our wedding reception here at the end of October and it was fantastic! 150 people and the best party we could have imagined. The barn was really atmospheric and looked stunning without having to spend a fortune on decorations. All the guests thought it was amazing and totally memorable. Cherry was incredibly helpful and
    rain or shine, whatever your reason for a party - this is the place!

    Probably one of the most stunning wedding venues in the south west!

    This is an absolutely stunning barn! The pictures don’t do it justice! It really does need to be seen in real life for you to truly appreciate its true beauty especially at night when the barn is lit up!
    All the guests were amazed by the barn and the up lighters really help set the mood for a truly great atmosphere!
    The weather was terrible on the day which meant that most of our wedding photos had to be taken inside instead of outside the church. The barn lent itself beautifully as the backdrop and photos look great!
    Cherry the owner is always on hand to offer as much or as little help as you require and we simply can’t recommend this venue enough!

    We would highly recommend this as a wedding reception venue.

    Beautiful location, full of atmosphere, extremely helpful owner

    This is an exceptionally beautiful barn which can accommodate over 100+ people. It is briming with character, and set in the heart of Dorset's wonderful countryside. I can only say a very big thank you to Cherry for all her assistance and advice in sourcing accommodation for guests and some extras.

    Idyllic Venue

    The barn itself is amazing and set in a beautiful area of Dorset countryside but close enough to Sherborne with its main line station, taxi firms and hotels to be very convenient for guests. Cherry (the owner) is very helpful from the outset. All of our guests commented on how amazing and intimate the venue was. The caterers also love it as it is easy to work in.

    A unique and one off venue for a unique and one off event

    My husband and I were married at the Abbey in Sherborne and had our reception at stockbridge Farm Barn. From the word go, the owner, Cherry, was totally on hand, helpful and nothing seemed to phase her or was too much. We adored the venue as it is so unique and just lent itself to our theme totally and the guests were blown away with the venue once it was decorated and ready to go. The service was amazing and we had some great caterers who worked well in the designated kitchen spot. The whole evening was fantastic and that was mostly down to the work that had gone into it from Cherry and her team of helpers. HUGE THANK YOU!

    Stunning Venue in a country setting-a one off!

    The Barn at Stockbridge is an amazing venue which impressed many of our wedding weary guests. Cherry Willoughby (the owner) is incredibly helpful and patient! Our wedding went so smoothly and most of our thank you letters commented on the uniqueness and "wow" factor of our venue. It is in a peaceful and beautiful setting and you don't feel as though you are in a rented venue but could be at home. Also, there are plenty of lovely places to stay nearby and an excellent taxi service despite it's rurality. We couldn't have hoped for better!
