About Winkworth Farm

Lea, Malmesbury
Wiltshire, SN16 9NH

Winkworth Farm is a family owned and operated eco-friendly wedding venue set at the edge of the Cotswolds, near the charming market town of Malmesbury. The venue offers totally exclusive use for every wedding, so you can enjoy a private celebration with your guests. The beautifully renovated 17th-century Cotswold stone barn is nestled within the tranquil setting of 210 acres of organic pasture. The luscious lawns, herbaceous borders and sunken garden sit within the beautiful organic meadows, providing stunning scenery and magical backdrops for your important wedding photographs.

The venue is licensed to hold ceremonies in a number of locations. The Main Threshing Barn can accommodate 200 seated guests on one level. The Long Barn and the outdoor Cotswold Stone Roundhouse, set within the sunken garden, are both ideal for ceremonies with up to 150 guests. Alternatively, if you have your heart set on a Church service, Malmesbury Abbey and several nearby Churches accept couples from outside the local parish.

The indoor ceremony area is separate to the main barn where the wedding breakfast is held. A tempoary wall is placed between the ceremony room and the main barn so you and your guests are not distracted or affected by anything during the ceremony. Therefore if you wish to keep it a surprise for your guests, then this is not a problem.

There are wireless microphones and a sound-system within the main barn for use during an indoor ceremony, speeches and the wedding breakfast. Furthermore, a BOSE sound-system is installed in the garden for use during outside ceremonies and background music for the drinks reception to ensure all your musical needs are accommodated.

To create your wedding breakfast, we offer a fantastic selection of catering companies who are all passionate about British cuisine and using the best local produce available. We trust these caterers to ensure you achieve the exact food you envisage to accompany your day, whether you are looking for traditional Three Course, Asados, sharing boards, afternoon tea, BBQs, vegan or anything inbetween! If you are unsure about your food, then all the caterers are filled with ideas and suggestions to help you decide, including wood-fired pizzas as an evening snack!

Whilst you and your guests enjoy the wedding breakfast in the main barn, the adjoined indoor ceremony area welcomes your band or DJ, where they can set up in privacy without distracting or impacting you and your guests' meal. When the wedding breakfast and speeches have finished, the temporary wall partitions dividing the dance floor/long barn and main barn are removed, revealing the dance floor and creating an open-plan area so your guests are free to wander outside to the folly, dance inside or rest their feet in the main barn area, whilst watching everything going on. For weddings under 180 daytime guests, there is no need to remove any tables/chairs to make way for the dancefloor.

On-site bed and breakfast accommodation is available for up to eight overnight guests. The Farmhouse boasts three double rooms and the Courtyard Barn is the perfect retreat for two. Furthermore during the months of April-October, Lulubells Glamping provides bespoke pop-up glamping experiences to our guests in the field beyond the venue - a festival style option that works great with weekend venue hire (i.e. Wedding on Saturday, Brunch on Sunday). Additional accommodation to suit all budgets is available locally, including hotels, B&Bs, holiday cottages and camping.

If you have any questions or queries, or would like to arange a viewing, please contact us and we will be more than happy to help.

• Immaculate Cotswold stone barn, offering exclusive use. • Flexible inside space with heating and cooling, perfect for all seasons. • Ample outside space for drinks reception, photos, Asados & BBQs, adjacent to a five acre field suitable for games. • Licensed to hold indoor & outdoor ceremonies for up to 200 guests (local churches are also available). • Interactive online package builder available to help with budgeting. • On-site accommodation for up to eight guests plus Glamping.

Momentous weekend
Venue Service

By Colonel and Mrs RM Baker, on 18 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2019

Dear Jeremy, It hardly seems possible after the months of talking and planning for the 14th September, that is now behind us. You have an incredible setting for a wedding celebration and that, combined with the weather, made it a very special day for Jess and Jimmy. Family and guests from both families, to whom we spoke, all said it was the best wedding they had attended. That was in no small part due to you and your excellent staff for their hard work in helping to make the day such a success. Jane and I wanted to thank you for your patience, advice and support in the lead-up to, and during the weekend . Would you kindly pass on our sincere thanks to your staff, especially Tom, and of course Melanie for the excellent breakfast we had on Sunday morning. For all of us it was the most memorable weekend and we much appreciate all that you did to make everything run smoothly. the photographs we have seen so far capture the joy and happiness of the occasion and especially that of Jess and Jimmy whose radiant faces say it all. With our sincere thanks Mark & Jane (Brides parents)

Thank you!

Beautiful converted barn venue with relaxed feel
Venue Service

By David Wood, on 02 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

We were married at Winkworth Farm 3 weeks ago and it was an amazing experience. The venue is beautiful and was decorated lovely, the atmosphere was so relaxed all day which was in no small part due to the very friendly and accommodating staff. We planned to have our ceremony in the wonderful sunken garden however the weather didn't allow it unfortunately so we changed last minute to indoors. Jeremy was a pleasure to work with and made the re-arrangements for the bad weather with minimal fuss. He was also very accommodating in obtaining our preferred wines for our wedding breakfast. Many guests commented on what a lovely venue this really is. I would highly recommend Winkworth Farm for a wedding or other function, as well as Winkworth Hire who did an excellent job with all the additional decorations.

Thank you

By Jane & Euan Adams, on 07 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 13 Jul 2019

Dear Jeremy & Melanie, Thank you so much for all that you did for us to ensure that we had an amazing wedding day. The venue looked incredible and everyone commented on how lovely it was. All of the staff who helped were so kind and professional - we really, truly felt well looked after. We could not imagine our day being any better and that is in part down to your hard work throughout the planning and on the day. The venue is undoubtedly gorgeous but it is the passion and hard work of the people behind the scenes which makes it so special. Thank you again and we wish you all the very best for the future. Jane and Euan x (Mr. & Mrs. Adams!)

Dear all I'm sorry we have taken so long to say it - but sending a HUGE thank you for our wedding day! We had the best day and our guests did too - I'm sure a lot of hard work went on behind the scenes to get everything to run so smoothly and everyone to feel so comfortable. The grounds were looking gorgeous too! When we get our photos I will send you some that show it off :-) Best wishes - hope you are surviving the summer! Rachel and Josef xx
