About The Square & Compass Barn

Windmill Hill, Ashill, Ilminster
Somerset, TA19 9NX

Surrounded by fields and beautiful countryside, yet within striking distance of Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, The Square & Compass Barn is your perfect rustic barn wedding venue.


The Barn is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and can accommodate up to 235 people.  Furnished with farmhouse style long wooden tables and chairs under a canopy of twinkling fairy lights and bunting, it really is an enchanting setting for your special day. With its own bar, raised stage area for bands and full PA system, everything is under one roof.  Outside the barn, is a spacious garden area, overlooking fields, providing the perfect backdrop for your all-important wedding photographs. 


Your hosts, husband and wife team Buddy and Kate, are experienced wedding caterers, helping couples realise their wedding dreams for 15 years.  Our unique combination of Barbadian & British means you can have a traditional country wedding, arriving by tractor to chilled champagne, garnished with fresh strawberries and music of your choice or a Caribbean themed wedding, with a fruity rum punch, the sweet sounds of a live steel band and Caribbean style canapés. Nothing you require is too much trouble as we want your day to be perfect in every way.


Our delicious in-house catering options include sumptuous hot and cold buffets, 3 course seated meals, modern Caribbean cuisine, hog roasts and BBQs. 


The Square & Compass Barn also boasts 6 double and 2 twin well-appointed, spacious, en-suite rooms (2 of which are fully accessible) in our stable block, providing accommodation for you and your guests as well as plenty of additional accommodation nearby.  All this, with the added bonus of a charming country inn, The Square & Compass, on site.
