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 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 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 local 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. 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 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 partitions dividing the dance floor 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.

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. Additional accommodation to suit all budgets is available locally, including B&Bs, Holiday cottages, camping and hotels.

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.

Our wedding at Winkworth Farm in May 2018 was perfect! Melanie and Jeremy were amazing and so accommodating. They were so keen to make the day as good as possible that they missed a wedding they had planned to go to so that ours went without a hitch, we’re very grateful. Any questions we had were answered so quickly and the day went so smoothly without any input from us. Warings catering made the most fantastic food (wood fired pizzas and cheesecake were my favourite!) with big portions so no one was left wanting more. Sue kept the evening running smoothly and without fuss which was just what we wanted. Tom from Winkworth Hire was also really helpful in setting up the items for the day. We couldn’t recommend the farm enough - it was the ideal country location and glamping on the wedding night with Lulu Bell Tents was so much fun and kept the celebrations going. Having guests beds a mere 100m away was so convenient. Having breakfast the next morning was the perfect end to a happy day, we just wish we could do it again! Thanks to everyone involved, the day wouldn’t have been half as good without you. Sophie & Luke

To all at Winkworth Farm, Firstly we are so sorry it has taken us so long to write to you! We wanted to say thank you so so much to everyone there for giving us the most amazing wedding day. Your venue is just absolutely stunning - it was the first and last venue we viewed because we fell in love instantly. The day ran so smoothly and everyone in your team was so professional but so friendly and laid back also. We also wanted to say how amazing the little lodge was that we stayed in after the wedding, it was so beautiful and to wake up to snow the next morning, we didn't want to leave, we felt so snug! We still say now how we wish we could do the day all over again, it was just perfect. You have all been brilliant and you deserve all the success in the world. We can't thank you enough! From Sarah & Dane Jenner xxx 16/03/2018

Dear Melanie, Jeremy, Sue, Andy and Tom, I really cannot thank-you enough. We honestly had the best weekend of our lives together so far and you were such a big part of making that happen. You were all so helpful and accommodating in the run up and on the day, and Saturday itself was absolutely wonderful. ... Jeremy, my dad commented on just how attentive you were and how you knew exactly where to be all evening. I am certain you were heading up a great team with Melanie, and so many thanks to both you and them. The red wine was particularly lovely - James kept on taking it off me when I started dancing and so I ended up having little bits of a multitude of glasses. My friend who does set design for a living wrote and said it all looked wonderfully winter wonderland-y, quite the compliment. Our band and pianist appeared to have a great time from their emails today. Thank-you also for welcoming them. A particular highlight was dancing round the firepit, something I will never forget! In all, everything was just perfect. You even managed some sun for us! Thank-you so, so much. We'll send on some of our photos when we get them back but my bridesmaid and mum were absolutely delighted to already see their cake on Instagram! With very best wishes, Lydia (and James)

Dear Melanie & Jeremy, I am so sorry that its taken us so long for us to send you this card, but please accept it as a massive thank-you for letting us host our wedding at your most beautiful barn. It was everything that we ever imagined and so much more. We still can't believe that we were so lucky that it was available. Thank-you for being amazing in helping us organise everything, right down to the smallest of details. The barn has provided us the most amazing pictures & the most priceless memories. All our love, Hannah & Chris xxx

By Carolyn Walsh, on 28 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

Dear Melanie & Jeremy I have finally got back into normal routine, so thought I really must send an email of thanks. I’m sure you have already received thanks from Nick and Gay – I just wanted to add my own heartfelt appreciation for all that you and Tom did to make Charlotte and Ceri’s wedding day so perfect and seamless, it was exactly what Charlotte wanted and everything just seemed to happen around us without us noticing. I realise that at times I seemed to be constantly contacting you with requests and queries, for which I’m sorry, and I’m glad that you always found time for a kind and helpful response! What more can I say – Winkworth Farm is a beautiful venue, so immaculately kept, and our friends said it looked glamourous and like a magazine shoot. The service from all your team was amazing and faultless, many guests commented how friendly and helpful everyone seemed on the day and this really contributed to a happy welcoming atmosphere. I wouldn’t change a thing – just amazing… With warm regards Carolyn

Anna & PJs wedding

By Dave & Pam May, on 27 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017

Jeremy & Melanie Sorry for the delay in writing to you but we have just come back from holiday. Where do we being to thank you enough for such a perfect wedding day for our daughter Anna & new son in law PJ. From the very first meeting to the actual day you made us feel so relaxed and welcome. We found the venue to be just picture perfect for the country style wedding we were seeking. It goes without saying that it exceed all our expectation, from the gin drinks trolley on arrival to beautifully manicured lawns to the catering and of course the massive endeavours of your whole team. Winkworth Barn, the catering and general ambience have generated such wonderful comments from our family and friends. You should feel justly proud of what you have created. We shall certainly sing your praises from the roof tops. Thank you so much for everything, we will ensure a few photos are sent via Facebook when Anna & PJ get back from South Africa. PS. The B & B followed by that wonderful full English just finished off the weekend, thank you. Kind regards Dave & Pam May
