Sophie & Nick May 2019

We eloped to The Cow Shed at Freathy Farmhouse last month for an intimate wedding with just the two of us and our Bulldog, Dottie. No doubt as with most couples who elope, we had no idea what to expect having never been to The Cow Shed in person. Our trust was purely built on faith in Sarah and Jeremy who own the farmhouse. We were, of course, rewarded massively for this and our wedding was as perfect as it could've ever been.
We were blown away by all of the intricacies and personal touches throughout the whole of our stay - there seemed to be a surprise around every corner. Our wedding suite so comfortable, the accommodation was beautifully decorated and breakfast both days was incredible.
Both the ceremony room and the milking parlour where we had our evening meal were decorated beautifully. It was truly stunning. The attention to detail is something we've never experienced before. It honestly felt like Sarah had crept inside of our heads and created something that even we couldn't have dreamt of.
The Cow Shed was is the most ideal location with spectacular coastal scenery providing the backdrop for our photos.
Communication and help was exceptional throughout and nothing was too much trouble.
Neither of us had ever been the type of person to 'dream' about their 'special day' and we had no idea at the beginning of this journey what we wanted. But we could not have chosen a more perfect place to be married and I am so grateful to have found The Cow Shed.
For anyone considering an elopement wedding, we cannot recommend The Cow Shed more highly. Along with our incredible photographer from Enchanted Brides Photography and caterer Debbie at Kcalfoods, our day was beyond amazing.

AS SOON AS VICTORIA AND I MET SARAH AND JEREMY AND THEY SHOWED US AROUND THEIR BEAUTIFUL FARMHOUSE AND WEDDING BARNS WE KNEW WE HAD TO GET MARRIED THERE. BUT WHAT CAME AFTER WE NEVER COULD HAVE EXPECTED.
THE WARMTH, LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP SARAH AND JEREMY HAVE SHOWN US IS TRULY REMARKABLE AND SO OFTEN MISSING FROM THE WORLD OF WEDDING VENUES AND SUPPLIERS. SARAH AND JEREMY HAVE BEEN LESS LIKE WEDDING VENUE OWNERS AND MORE LIKE FRIENDS, DROPPING EVERYTHING TO HELP US HAVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING DAY WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED. THANKS TO THEM OUR DAY WAS BEAUTIFUL BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, TOTALLY RELAXED.
GUESTS KEPT COMING UP TO US AND SAYING HOW CHILLED, FRIENDLY AND LAID BACK IT WAS. I THINK THE COWSHED IS THE ANTIDOTE TO ALL THE WORST BITS OF WEDDINGS. AND OF COURSE, STAYING IN THEIR BEAUTIFUL FARMHOUSE WAS A TOTAL DREAM. THE COWSHED AND MILKING PARLOUR LOOKED AMAZING WITH THEIR UNIQUE DECORATIONS, HAY BALES AND FAIRY LIGHTS. ALL OF THAT JUST A FEW MOMENTS BACK FROM THE BEACH. WE WENT DOWN TO OUR FAVOURITE BEACH AT WHITSAND BAY FOR PHOTOS AND A DIP IN BETWEEN LUNCH AND THE EVENING.
OUR GUESTS LOVED IT. IN FACT, I’M SURE A FEW OF OUR GUESTS WILL BE WALKING DOWN THE COWSHED AISLE AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE! IF YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET MARRIED HERE, GRAB IT WITH BOTH HANDS. THANK YOU SO MUCH SARAH AND JEREMY.

Where to start!!!!! No words I could ever write will tell you or Sarah & Jeremy how amazing this place is and how lovely everyone at The Cowshed is. From the moment we booked our wedding with them, they were so kind, helpful, genuine. Lots of questions were never too many, and every time we visited the venue we were welcomed, and spoilt with lots of tea and cake!!! The actual wedding was incredible. Nothing is too much for Sarah and Jeremy. They help you wherever they can, make the most AMAZING food, welcome you into their home and spoil you (again) with beautiful hampers in the rooms. Not only were they professional, they were so kind and that made our wedding the perfect day that it was. Sarah and Jeremy are now firmly rooted in our marriage and our memories, and now we can call them friends. If you're considering having your wedding here.... do it. You will be blown away by the venue, the home and the staff. I would give you a billion stars!!!! xxxxx

Huge thank you to Sarah and Jeremy for helping make our day incredible. They were both so helpful, and the food and rooms in the B&B were amazing. The little touches make a big difference and these guys know how to do it well. Would recommend to anyone looking for a venue in the southwest. Kat and James xxxx

Sarah and Jeremy went above and beyond to make our day perfect. From the minute we arrived until we left nothing was to much trouble for them. Sarah took the time to dress the milking parlour and the cow shed absolutely beautiful for us. It will be a day that I will never ever forget and a big part of that was down to you and Jeremy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting us hold our wedding at your amazing home and for making me and lee have the most perfect day ever xxxxxxxxxx

THE COW SHED – THE MOST EXQUISITE, BEAUTIFUL, ROMANTIC AND CHARACTERISTIC PLACE. AN INCREDIBLE RARE DIAMOND HIDDEN IN A UNIQUE PART OF CORNWALL, THE COW SHED IS EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT IN A WEDDING VENUE AND MILLION TIMES MORE.
HOWEVER, AS AMAZING AS THIS PLACE IS, IT DOES NOT COMPARE TO THE OWNERS SARAH & JEREMY. THEY WITHOUT A DOUBT MAKE THIS VENUE WHAT IT IS AND NO ONE ELSE COULD EVER MAKE IT AS SPECIAL! FROM THE MOMENT I SET FOOT AT THE COW SHED, I KNEW NO VENUE WOULD EVER COMPETE WITH THIS RUSTIC, QUANT PLACE. AND THEN WHEN YOU ARE MADE TO FEEL SO WELCOME BY THE LOVELY SARAH & JEREMY, AND THEY BRING OUT THE HOME-MADE CAKE, IT WILL LEAVE NO DOUBT YOU HAVE FOUND THE ONE!
WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET MARRIED HERE ON THE 2ND OF DECEMBER 2017 AND RIGHT UP TILL THAT DAY SARAH WAS THERE WHENEVER I NEEDED ADVICE, REASSURANCE, OR JUST TO CHAT! THEY MADE THE VENUE EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND MORE, HELPING US DECORATE, STAYING UP WITH US UNTIL AFTER MIDNIGHT THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING MAKING MOSS BALLS, BRINGING ME ENDLESS SUPPLIES OF TEA, AND NOT ONLY MAKING ME FEEL LIKE A FRIEND BUT A FAMILY MEMBER. I REALLY FELT LIKE IT WAS MY AUNTS HOME WHERE I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE GETTING MARRIED AT, AND NEVER FELT LIKE A NUMBER!
THE MORNING OF THE WEDDING MY NERVES WERE DIABOLICAL. THE LOVELY SARAH, WHO WAS ALREADY INUNDATED WITH ENDLESS THINGS THAT NEEDED DOING FOR US (WITHOUT A MOAN), BROUGHT ME A PIECE OF TOAST CUT IN TINY SQUARES AND BEGGED ME TO EAT ONE. NEVER WOULD ANY OTHER VENUE DO THAT! THEY SHOWED LOVE, UNDERSTANDING AND HEART!
WE WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL TO SARAH & JEREMY

TO SAY WE WERE PLEASED WITH OUR WEDDING AT THE COW SHED AT FREATHY FARMHOUSE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. SARAH AND JEREMY HAVE MADE WHAT WAS ALREADY A FANTASTIC LOCATION INTO A STUNNING VENUE THAT BLEW AWAY OUR GUESTS, WHO CAME FROM ALL AREAS OF THE GLOBE.
FROM THE MOMENT WE SAW THE COW SHED AND FREATHY FARMHOUSE, WE KNEW THAT IT WAS THE PERFECT PLACE TO HOLD OUR WEDDING. IN ADDITION TO THE FARMHOUSE, WHICH WAS MADE TO FEEL LIKE OUR OWN, THE COW SHED AND MILKING PARLOUR ADDED AN EXTRA NOTCH TO THE COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING THAT WE DESIRED.
SARAH AND JEREMY WERE EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL, HARD-WORKING AND UNDERSTANDING OF OUR NEEDS, AND WITH THIS UNDERSTANDING THEY OFTEN WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY. THE SERVICE PROVIDED BY SARAH AND JEREMY PUT US TOTALLY AT EASE AND ALLOWED US TO FULLY APPRECIATE AND ENJOY THE DAY WHICH, SO I’M TOLD, ISN’T OFTEN ATTRIBUTED TO OTHER VENUES.
WITH A NUMBER OF ‘OUTSIDE AGENCIES’ INVOLVED – CATERER, WAITING STAFF, FLOWER ARRANGERS, DANCE (CEILIDH) CALLER, WHOLESALERS AND THE LIKE – BOTH SARAH AND JEREMY REMAINED IN-TUNE TO OUR NEEDS AND SOUGHT TO TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF AT ANY GIVEN OPPORTUNITY. WE REVELLED IN THIS FREEDOM AND REALLY FELT THAT FREATHY WAS ROOTING FOR US TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL DAY.
THE PERSONAL DETAILS AND TOUCHES PROVIDED BY SARAH AND JEREMY WERE SO WELCOME AND THOUGHTFUL, IN PARTICULAR THE BRIDES BASKET CHOC FULL OF DELICIOUS TREATS AND GOODIES THAT ADDED AN ELEMENT OF EXCITEMENT TO THE BUILD UP. BREAKFAST IN THE MORNING WAS SUMPTUOUS AND JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED AFTER AN ENERGETIC DAY PACKED FULL OF LAUGHS AND JOY. OUR FAMILIES WERE TREATED LIKE OLD FRIENDS, WHICH ADDED TO THE INTIMATE FAMILY STYLE WEDDING THAT WE HOPED WE WOULD HAVE.

After a whole year I have managed to get around to posting a review! 'Mother of the groom', living fairy locally to Freathy, son and bride to be in Yangon, I was tasked with searching for a venue that would suit (it had to be Cornwall). I had four on my list, The Cow Shed was first stop, however after having coffee and amazingly delicious cake, discussing wedding needs I cancelled the next three on the list, went out on a limb and booked The Cow Shed. Sent details to James & Tash who were ecstatic about the venue. From the bottom of my heart I can honestly say that it was truly an honour to be part of Sarah & Jeremy's first wedding at The Cow Shed, they both went over and above what would have been part of their remit to make James & Tash's wedding the best day of my life. We were blessed with a glorious July day, guests from all over the world, Sarah & Jeremy made everyone so welcome plus making sure quietly in the background that all the efforts on everyone's part ran smoothly and to time. They made suggestions for flowers, made extra tables, Jeremy even built the bar! Nothing but nothing was too much trouble, the accommodation for the guests staying overnight was again tremendous. What a day! Thank you all at the Cow Shed for that truly unforgettable day - plus Sarah has put up loads of photos of James & Tash's wedding day on the Facebook page which capture the very essence of a perfect wedding venue. My one regret is that I have take so long to post this review!!

THE LONGER YOU STAY HERE, THE MORE YOU DON’T WANT TO LEAVE…
WE HAD OUR WEDDING HERE RECENTLY AND IT WILL NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE US JUST HOW MUCH DEDICATION AND HARD WORK HAS GONE INTO MAKING THIS PLACE FEEL AS PEACEFUL AND LOOK AS BEAUTIFUL AS IT DOES.
GO THERE. SPEND SOME TIME RELAXING IN AND AROUND THE OLD MILKING PARLOUR. EAT SOME AMAZING HOME COOKED FOOD. DRINK COFFEE. LISTEN TO THE BIRDS IN THE TREES AND THE WIND OVER THE OCEAN.
IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR MORE REVIEWS, WE CAN POINT YOU IN THE DIRECTION OF OVER A HUNDRED PEOPLE THAT WILL ALL SAY THE SAME AS WE JUST HAVE AND WHO IN THEIR OWN LITTLE WAY, WILL HAVE COME AWAY WITH THE COW SHED AND FREATHY FARMHOUSE ETCHED IN THEIR MINDS FOR A VERY LONG TIME!
