About The Thatch Barn

Church Farm, Yelling
Cambridgeshire, PE19 6SD

Located in the heart of the Cambridgeshire countryside, The Thatch Barn is a recent addition to the wedding venue market. Following a full restoration and refurbishment that finished in November 2013, the venue is a truly stunning setting for your wedding day.

"A Barn on a Farm" is what we are, we don't pretend to be anything else!  The grade II, thatched barn is set on a working farm and boasts the gorgeous original features including the charming original oak beams and spectacular vaulted roof which look absolutely spectacular when bathed in natural light. We have even upcycled the unwanted roof timber to create a fantastic bar. To top it all off, the thatched roof not only looks stunning and rustic but keeps the barn cool in the summer.

The barn can accommodate up to 100 guests at one time with the allowance of 20 additional guests at night. We only hold one wedding per weekend so not only do you and your guests have the opportunity to celebrate in privacy, but there is plenty of time to set up before and clear away after the wedding.

The Heritage award-winning, traditional barn displays the highest quality of craftsmanship within the gorgeous countryside setting. The views across the wild flowers and crops provide the ideal backdrop for your photographs. Additionally, the adjoining decked area looks out over the breath-taking scenery and is the perfect place to witness the most beautiful sunsets.

The flexibility of the venue means we can create a bespoke day for you. We are happy to recommend some of our trusted suppliers including florists, entertainers and photographers. There is a choice of two well established caterers to choose from, they can provide a range of superb dishes from hog roasts to formal three course dinners and everything inbetween!

We will be on hand to help as much, or as little, as you require. This is the venue that you can put your own stamp on for a truly special celebration.

• Exclusive use of the grade II listed thatched barn • The Barn can seat up to 100 people • Licensed bar and fully fitted catering kitchen • Seasonal farmland that is the perfect backdrop for your photos • Car parking for 40+ cars

Excellent hosts
Venue Service

By Dom Walker, on 13 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Dec 2017

Lovely venue that really requires minimal additional decoration, which makes life easier! Excellent hosts, who were willing to accommodate all of our requests, and an excellent staffed (and good value) bar.

Thank you so much for a fantastic reception, you were all so helpful and so kind. I wouldn't had been able to manage without all your help. The venue is extremely beautiful with all the fairy lights and wooden beams I just loved everything! On the plus side drinks were also a reasonable price ;)

Thank you Sanchia and team!! Our wedding day on 8th July was one to remember and the barn really is the perfect setting. Sanchia was born to host weddings - she was fully on board with our ideas and plans to have a glowstick rave! And on the day Sanchia and her team worked really hard to make sure it all went smoothly. She gently and suggested ideas, improvements and worked with our groomsmen and photographer to ensure that things on the day were in control and sticking to schedule - which meant that my husband and I could fully enjoy the day! I can't thank you enough - I would whole heartedly recommend the Thatch Barn to anyone considering having their wedding/reception here. Love from the Richardsons

Special place
Venue Service

By Lizzie Walters, on 13 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Apr 2017

We were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at the Thatch Barn a couple of weeks ago and both the venue and the people helping were amazing. Sanchia went above and beyond what we expected on the day and worked really hard to make sure we had the best day we could! The venue itself was beautiful and being able to get in the day before to set it all up was so useful as it meant we could both just enjoy the wedding morning and not have to worry about any decorating. We would thoroughly recommend having the Thatch Barn as part of any celebrations - it will always be a special place for us and will hold many good memories from our wedding day!

The best day ever
Venue Service

By Hannah and Dan Baker, on 02 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 22 Oct 2016

The Thatch Barn and its surroundings are stunning and from the moment we visited and met Sanchia, we knew it would suit us and the relaxed and informal wedding we wanted. Inside the barn is beautiful and with fairy lights and some bunting already in place you really don't need a lot of other decoration as it is just simply stunning. Sanchia was friendly and approachable to answer all of our questions and very flexible to our wishes which is what you want to make your day run as smoothly as possible. we wanted to handmake a lot of the table decorations and did our own flowers so we were able to do all of this on the Thursday and Friday before the wedding which was really helpful. Sanchia has a good way about her, very relaxed yet organised and left us to our own devices but popped back to offer any advice or support we needed. The venue has all the tables and chairs you would need and good bathroom and baby changing facilities. On the day Sanchia was just wonderful, making sure everything was in its place before we arrived at the venue on the day and checked with us when moving items around in the evening to make more space for the band. Sanchia also captured some beautiful photos and supported the photographer to get the best shots. After the wedding Sanchia and her team cleared everything other than our own items so when we arrived the next day there was very little for us to do. This makes all the difference and we want to thank you so much Sanchia and your family for making our day so special. We wish we could do it all again.

more perfect than could have imagined

My (now) husband and I are quite laidback. We'd toyed with an abroad wedding. Just wanted something simple that wouldn't cost the earth but was completely us. Thatch barn and sanchia gave us exactly this. We got to decorate the whole Friday before (which was fun as you're completely in control). Always accommodating and helpful. We had our caterer do a street food theme outside so choice of paella fish and chips or bbq. Everyone loved it. Room for bouncy castle hook a duck. You name it you make it your own but with the support from the team there. Drinks are lower than in most pubs so guests are happy. There are enough lights there for you to not worry about spending hundreds on fairy lights. Perfect location if looking for a church wedding as we walked across the road. I could be hear for hours saying how wonderful it is. Genuinely and I believe this. Our guests said in their top 3. If you want to be unique and have a really carefree day. Choose here

We fell in love with thatch barn the moment we arrived my husband said he knew straight away this was the one as i smiled whole way round. The venue is beautiful the scenary surrounding the barn is lovely. From the 1st visit Sanchia put us at ease and answered all our queries and she was a point of contact throughout and an excellent host on our wedding day nothing was too much trouble no question to silly. The barn appealed so much to us as you could make it personal to you and the day becomes as individual as you are as a couplem Other venues we visited the weddings were too manufactured carbon copies of other weddings and we didnt want that. Our wedding was an amazing day our friends and family adored the venue and loved all our quirky individual choices we had made. The fact we could get into the venue 2 days before to set up was fantastic it gave us time to decorate without feeling rushed and once again Sanchia was there to answer any questions and on hand to help. Sanchia and the rest of the team at thatch barn made our day extra special and i loved opening my photo booth album the following day and seeing they had joined in the fun and had a photo too. We cannot rate or recommend thatch barn enough we loved it infact we wish we could do it all again maybe next year for an anniversary party ?
