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.

Good afternoon from the Shepherd’s, This is just a little email to thank you for hosting us at the very beautiful Winkworth Farm. From the very beginning when first coming over to see the place, we knew we wanted to get married at your beautiful home. It really was everything we wanted it to be and we cannot thank you enough. Yours and Melanie’s hospitality has been fantastic from the outset. Communication and understand of our feelings and requests throughout the process were excellent. Thank you to Tom, he’s a lovely chap, we appreciated the help and support prior to the 8th September. On the morning of the wedding he was nice enough to let us into set up half an hour early (that extra 30 mins really helped as well). Huge thank you from me and my wife. We really couldn’t have asked for anymore, it went so smoothly and we are really grateful to have been able to hold our wedding at Winkworth. Take care, Thanks again, the new Mr & Mrs Shepherd

Amazing venue with a personal touch
Venue Service

By Sophie Bath, on 29 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018

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
