About The Comb

At the top of the beautiful Tarset valley in Northumberland is The Comb, a stunning setting to create the relaxed wedding of your dreams. This late 1700s converted stone border farm has 60 acres of land surrounded by the hills, forest, rivers, burns and moors of Northumberland National Park.

You have exclusive use of The Comb for the entire weekend with capacity for both intimate weddings or larger celebrations of up to 250 guests (150 dining) in the dark skies barn. Accommodation for 20 of your wedding party is included plus use of all the facilities.

The Comb is not a full-time wedding venue and we only host a finite number of weddings per year, this keeps everything fresh and allows your wedding to be genuinely unique and special. We guarantee you won't be bumping into another bride!

You select the caterers and food to suit your taste with no packages to restrict your choice and erode your budget. Our experienced staff will work out drinks with you to suit your taste and budget. Our licensed bar has a full range of drinks for your wedding day and evening.

With views in every direction, the photographer is spoiled for choice, this is also the heart of the Northumberland Dark Skies, so what about the Milky Way as a backdrop!

The dark sky barn can seat up to 150 to dine and up to 250 for a party. With a licensed bar, dancefloor, stage for live bands, food preparation room and toilets it has all the facilities required. Tables, tablecloths, chairs, cultery and glasses are supplied for up to 90 with additional capacity available through hiring.

As the sun sets over Sidwood, the stars light the heavens and you can celebrate and dance into the night without fear of having to end the fun early. We have neighbours but they are mostly deer, owls and foxes!

This a land from a time gone by, a rustic setting to not only create a memorable wedding but also an unforgettable weekend/midweek event. What about a torchlit supper under the stars or BBQ the night before? Why not start your big day with a relaxed social breakfast? Release the grooms pre-wedding nervous energy with a wedding morning spent clay pigeon shoot or playing a game of golf followed by an ushers/ groomsman lunch by the fire in the Hollybush Inn.

While The Comb is set among a truly lovely wilderness it is only 40 minutes from Newcastle Airport and under an hour to Newcastle station. The train from London to Newcastle is less than 3 hours and Edinburgh is around 2 hours drive to the centre of the city. There is a variety of accommodation for your guests nearby or the adventurous are welcome to camp in the grounds. More on-site accommodation will become available during 2018.

To view this fantastic venue or to find out more, contact the team at The Comb directly.

    Wedding at the Comb July 2021

    We had our wedding on 17th July at The Comb, so had the venue from Friday to Sunday.
    The venue was absolutely perfect.

    The accommodation was spot on, rooms were lovely & clean, kitchen and dining areas had plenty of room to store everything we needed and to cater for all guests staying with us.

    We had our ceremony outside and it was beautiful, the backdrop was stunning.

    The barn for the reception needed very little doing to it, but it was great that we could add our own touches to personalise our wedding. We loved that we could bring in our own caterers and appreciated the flexibility of using The Comb to supply some of the toast and table drinks whilst we paid corkage for some more specific drinks we wanted.

    From start to finish Pat, Johnny, and especially Neil and Jess have been quick to answer the 1001 questions we had and put us at ease about the day.

    Neil and Jess were amazing and so helpful. The day before Neil helped us to set up and on the day was invaluable at keeping us right and helping us out with just about everything. Jess was a star behind the bar and made sure everything ran smoothly there.

    It was the perfect weekend and perfect wedding in a laid back, rustic and gorgeous setting. We couldn't have asked for anything more and so many of our guests said it was the best wedding and venue they'd ever been to. We could not recommend it highly enough.

    Amazing location, fantastic staff.

    We hired the Comb for a weekend so our family and friends could enjoy the accommodation on the Friday night before our wedding on the Saturday. No public, no conveyor belt of weddings, just us, perfect! The sun came out allowing us to have our service on the field, the Northumberland countryside providing a backdrop that was second to none. There was so much outdoor space to enjoy and the barn was perfect for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. In addition to this, but just as important, Johnny, Neil, Jess and all the team were absolutely fantastic. They worked with us every step of the way to create our perfect day. We would happily recommend The Comb to anyone.

    Well beyond the call of duty

    The wedding of my daughter was last weekend (10th August) the weather was atrocious, Pat, Sarah and staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble, Pat rounded up the locals to get as many guests to the venue as possible, Sarah was giving alternative directions, staff were being so supportive. Due to all their efforts what could have been a disaster turned out to be a brilliant day. The venue is superb with everything you need plus more. The barn is totally amazing and has to be seen to be believed!
