About Woolas Barn

Appleton Roebuck
North Yorkshire, YO23 7HT

Originally built in 1863 and renovated in 2018, Woolas Barn is a unique rural wedding venue based on a family-run 400 acre farm, within 20 minutes drive from the historic city of York and 30 minutes from Leeds centre.

Blending rustic character with modern details, the venue is comprised of four seamlessly linked areas - the Courtyard, the Granary, the Lambing Shed and the Ceremony Room.  

The large outdoor courtyard has easterly views across to the Yorkshire Wolds and in the evening a beautiful night sky, perfect for enjoying toasting marshmallows on the firepits after the sun goes down.

The oldest part of Woolas Barn is the Granary. Featuring a rustic bar, reception area and most importantly space to strut your stuff when the music starts. Upstairs lie two cosy snugs providing the perfect place to enjoy a chat with old friends over a cocktail or two!

The Lambing Shed now boasts a striking vaulted ceiling and glass doors providing views across the Courtyard and beyond. There is a natural warmth and energy about the space in which you can sit down and dine with up to 130 of your closest friends and family.

The Ceremony Room is a unique area which was once stabling for the farm’s working horses. After careful restoration it is now a glorious Ceremony Room. With original timbers and brickwork all beautifully lit it has become the perfect place for the most precious part of your day

• Access to beautiful gardens and the surrounding farm for wedding photographs • An option to design and plan your own wedding or allow us to coordinate it for you • A friendly, family run business on site to make sure you can enjoy your special day • Flexibility to use external caterers and other suppliers, or work with the folks we know and trust • Experience your wedding day surrounded by marks and names etched into the timbers over the decades • Just a 20 minute drive from the historic city of York

Janie & Craig Wedding
Venue Service

By Janie Johnson, on 16 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2019

We booked this venue when there was no roof !! As we could see the love and potential this venue had ! Not only a couples dream but a haven for an interior designer !! The contrast of old and new, rustic and chic it was a dream come true to have the barn literally on the doorstep and being able to watch the barn transform into a wedding venue dreams are made of was a privilege. The Mills are personable to clients ie the happy couple and proud of their barn and so enthusiastic about the history and what the future holds. They offer a building that is unique and genuine, and will be hard to beat as a one of wedding destination. You can creative what ever your heart desires do as much or as little in terms of decor as trust me the setting is beautiful and breathtaking in its rawness. With an intimate ceremony room and eclectic style this venue will blow you away and you are not short of space !! We had 105 guests - dining - bar - gin tin - indoor and outdoor catering - outdoor dancing and fire pit - games room - photo booth room - chill out area - kids tipi area - bridal room the list goes on and guests are still in awe of the day and events !! We will treasure our day forever Woolas Barn will be in our hearts forever I could talk and review for days ! But nothing will be able to express our love for this place, check out our wedding blog on their social media to see how our day was captured, true perfection. In our hearts forever x

We came across this rustic diamond in the rough while desperately trying to find our perfect wedding venue on the outskirts of York. We couldn't believe our luck when a family friend said the Mills were converting their (huge) pig sheds into a wedding venue. Fast forward 12 months and we got married at Woolas Barn on 27th July 2019. Throughout the past 12 months we've witnessed the hardwork, care and attention James and his family have ploughed into the charming venue. It was everything we wished for and more. Incredible setting in the Yorkshire countryside with a grand driveway and views over the countryside. The imposing glass entrance lead into a beautifully restored barn with plenty of original features mixed in with modern touches e.g. James's handmade wooden and steel bar. It easily accommodated all our guests (130-160) on the day which was lucky as it poured with rain. With Woolas Barn you get an amazing venue but you also get time, care and a truly personal touch from James and his family. It's also worth noting that the space is so vast you really can make it your own. It was genuinely the best day of our lives owning in no small part to being able to celebrate it at Woolas Barn.

The Perfect Place To Celebrate!

I have been to many weddings over the years, but this one stands out for many reasons. It was an incredibly special wedding - one of my best friends was marrying her awesome man - and the location truly couldn’t have been better. The converted barn is full to the brim with character. Spacious, yet snug, this family-run business is the answer to your ‘now where on earth shall we get married?!’ worries! It’s perfectly designed to accommodate lots of merry guests, with plenty of space to dance, dine, or drink in the ambience from the balcony. The surrounding landscape is Yorkshire at its best. Take a visit and you’ll see exactly what I mean! Woolas Barn, ‘I do!’

Beautiful Venue

Woolas Barn made for a magical venue for Anna & Steve's wedding in September. From start to finish to atmosphere and service was impeccable. An amazing setting and space, the layout made the evening flow wonderfully, from the dining area to the bar and dancefloor in the evening. Would recommend!
