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!

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 andSent on 07/12/2006
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!Sent on 05/12/2006
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!
Our wedding comprised of a Thomas Hardy themed hog roast and barn dance....the barn/location and effortless help provided by all concerned at the barn namely Cherry, made it a dream come trueSent on 21/11/2006
