A beautiful and relaxed countryside venue

My wife and I first visited the Haybarn back in 2021 at the very beginning of our wedding planning. It happened to be the very first venue we visited and my wife immediately fell in love with the venue. I on the other hand wanted to do a little more research before making the final decision on where we wanted to get married. After we looked at a few other options, nothing else could match up to the beautiful and relaxed atmosphere we had found at The Haybarn. As a location for our wedding, it ticked all the boxes for us.

Both owners Rebecca and Emma, as well as coordinator Louise and the rest of the team have been fantastic and very accommodating throughout our wedding planning journey. Louise has such great experience and was wonderful to work with - from advising us during the initial planning stage and liaising with our suppliers (everything went off without a hitch) to welcoming our guests on the big day.

The venue didn’t need much decor as the restored barn and cartshed are so beautiful. We also loved the on-site accommodation as most of our family had to travel to the wedding (especially my wife’s family who came from Belgium). The bar stocking only local drink options was a nice touch and the cider made from the orchard was very much appreciated by our guests.

We would highly recommend the Haybarn for a wonderful day or weekend to remember.

Perfect wedding venue

We had our wedding here a few weeks ago and we could not have asked for a better day. From the start when we booked the venue up to the day of our wedding the staff at The Haybarn have been so friendly and willing to help. The venue is in a beautiful countryside setting and a very relaxed vibe which is exactly what we wanted. The whole process was stress free and enjoyable. We couldn't have picked a better venue for our special day.

The most perfect day!

Wow, where do I start? The Haybarn is the most perfect venue and all of our guests can’t stop talking about how incredible it was. The team were absolutely incredible and made us feel so at ease from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble. Becca, Louise and Emma all made us feel so welcome and it really felt like a home away from home for the whole weekend. We cannot thank you enough. The day was seamless, every detail was thought about and it was honestly the best day of our lives.

Beautiful Picturesque Venue

Thanks Emma and the Haybarn Team!!
Jelmer and I had a truly fantastic day and all our guests did to! The Haybarn is a beautiful venue- and felt really personal and authentic to get married on a family farm. The bridal squad appreciated the B&B breakfast with homemade jams and veggies from the garden and eggs from the chickens. We will cherish these memories of getting ready surrounded by our family and friends and getting married together on your farm.
The outdoor lawns with fire pits and little brook running through really lend themselves to a relaxed vibe where people can mingle and play games. Our guests loved the two Donkeys and chickens!!
The Haybarn was big enough for a Ceilidh -where almost all 120 guests did some barn dancing!
We appreciated all of Emma’s help and support- not only on the wedding day- where she was on hand to quietly check in but also on the lead-up to the big day with some helpful calls and check-ins. She had a warm relaxed calm personal style that helped to put us at ease and make the most out of planning our big day.
We had a wedding day that far surpassed our expectations in every way and the beautiful venue was a big part in contributing towards that. Thank you for making the start of our married life a magical one with your beautiful farm.

Lots of love,
Mr and Mrs VDD xxx

Fabulous venue

We had the day of our dreams at the Haybarn. It's a stunning venue and the staff were knowledgeable, lovely and helpful. They did everything they could to accommodate our reception being held outside despite the weather being uncertain, and the additional extras like having the donkeys Blossom & Albert and the quirks of the site being a working farm really makes the venue special and unique. We didn't hire companies for decoration or catering so we had to do a lot ourselves and were pretty much left to the set-up by the venue, so be aware that you will have to muck in unless you hire external companies (including taking away all rubbish the next day) - but the set-up was fun to do with our friends and made the day all the more personal. We had nothing but compliments from guests on how wonderful the venue was. Thank you to all involved at the Haybarn, we only hope we know someone in the future who gets married here so we can attend as guests without having to plan anything!

Mr & Mrs Williams Wedding

The Haybarn was the perfect location for our wedding. The farm and barns are so so beautiful and the staff where so friendly and helpful through the whole process, from planning to the day itself. My guests are still talking about how amazing the day was 6 months later!

Beautiful, rustic, perfect!

Coming from farming families we always wanted a local, country, rustic style wedding. The first venue we visited was the Haybarn, we immediately knew that's where we wanted our wedding reception.
We loved the barns country charm and the grounds were amazing for socialising with our guests, playing lawn games and also provided lots of space for guests who wanted a quiet area. The venue also provided accommodation which was a big tick when looking at venues as we wanted to stay onsite on our wedding night.
We had the most amazing weekend; Becca, Emma and Natasha were beyond helpful throughout the process and made our day run smoothly. Highly recommend!

Incredible Venue

We booked The Haybarn in 2018 when the venue in its early days. They promised us it would be beautiful once everything was finished and my goodness, they were not wrong. After postponing our 2020 wedding to 2022, (The Haybarn we’re exceptionally accommodating of this as we changed our date quite a few times!) we got married at the venue of our dreams. It is so secluded, so peaceful and the perfect space for a large wedding - especially one with children and babies too. We have had several guests come to us saying that the venue was the nicest they’d ever been to and we would completely agree. The ceremony space is idyllic, the barn itself is roomy and beautifully finished and the outside space is perfect for lawn games and outdoor seating. The whole vibe of The Haybarn is relaxed which is a reflection of our whole experience planning a wedding here. We had the perfect weekend and The Haybarn is to thank for that.

Brilliant experience!

I can't reccomend The Haybarn and Emma and Becca enough. We had to change our dates twice and they were so accommodating, helpful and understanding. They kept in contact regularly to talk about out plans by email and zoom. The day itself went perfectly, all out guests were blown away with how beautiful the venue was. The whole booking and organising experience and the wedding day was perfect from end to end.

Amazing venue, spacious and flexible

Amazing staff who were helpful and very friendly. Lovely outdoor space to keep guests entertained with games and animals. Definitely good venue for children as the stream to paddle in was a big hit with our younger guests.
The venue itself is outstanding, the barn is Albany canvas for you to put your own stamp on. The shepherd huts are cosy and welcoming as well as the home barn,it is like being home from home. B&B breakfast was 5star with our fussy children they loved it! The barn is breathtaking with views across the gardens and a huge space to cater for the wedding breakfast guests. Loved every second of our experience at the haybarn and would love to do it all again!!
