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

Most Amazing Venue
Venue Service

By Sarah Jayne Jeffrey, on 13 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 28 May 2016

We had our beautiful wedding reception at The Thatch Barn on 28.05.16 - it was the most amazing wedding venue we could have ever wished for and Sanchia is simply incredible - she put so much time and effort into making sure our day ran smoothly and helping make the barn look stunning. We are so lucky to have had our wedding reception here, a wonderful day full of memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Sanchia we couldn't have asked for anymore, you made our day so very special.

Stunning Venue, Amazing Owners

The Thatch Barn was the second venue we visited. It blew us away. We fell in love with the Barn immediately. Sanchia showed us around, answered questions, advised us then left us to take it all in, and have time to ourselves. We never felt pushed to book. We visited a few times in the run up to the wedding, everytime Sanchia was on hand to help and make suggestions. Having never planned a wedding before, at times it was overwhelming, but a quick email and the worries disappeared. The few weeks before the wedding the weather was very wet (it was November after all). Sanchia and her team organised for us to be able to use their wheat shed if we needed for welcoming drinks, it was really handy for myself and the bridesmaids to hide in too before the ceremony. they had cleaned it and lined it, it is small touches like this that make you realise they really want your day to be perfect. Also as it had rained from the moment I arrived Sanchia also let us use part of her house for photographs. We set up the day before and again we were met by Sanchia and her smile. Her family were so kind throughout our wedding and even captured some amazing photos. Our day was perfect and ran smoothly thanks to everyone involved with the thatch barn. we went to pack away the next day and again were amazed at how fantastic Sanchia and her team were. Everything was packed away, all we had to do was load the car. Words can not describe how I feel about the thatch barn and the team. Sanchia is amazing. all I can say is please visit this venue, you will love it.

Beautiful venue, you can really make your own
Venue Service

By Charlotte and Chris, on 06 Oct 2015

We looked around a few venues that felt like wedding machines and very impersonal. We wanted to find somewhere that allowed us to make the experience more 'us'. I was so excited when we found The Thatch Barn - it was everything we wanted. It's a beautiful building in a lovely countryside village, a bit different to the norm and with flexibility so it provided us with the chance to really make our reception our own. They are happy to help and recommend suppliers or you can do it all yourselves. Sanchia and the team were so friendly and helpful in the lead up to it and made sure the day ran smoothly. It was also great that we could get into the venue to set up two days before meaning much less stress for me, and you have it booked out for the weekend so you don't feel rushed away because they have to start getting ready for another event. All of our guests commented on what an amazing place it was and asked how I'd found it so I hope this helps other people looking for somewhere like us. We loved it and it really helped make our wedding day even more special and memorable.
