What a dream!

As soon as we left York Barn at Villa Farm after our first viewing we knew it was the place for us. We had "that feeling". The barn is is beautiful, you could spend next to nothing on decor and your wedding would still look stunning. The outside space is equally lovely and there is a lovely covered, heated area which is ideal for those wanting to get fresh air or take a breather from music and dancing.
The cottages on site were spotlessly clean, really nicely decorated and had everything you could want or need during your wedding weekend. Our whole family and wedding party stayed in them and loved it. The team were brilliant, especially Nicole, who was our main contact. She was incredible from start to finish, quick to respond to all our of queries no matter how big or small, she was patient with our requests, thoughtful about every little detail and she was possibly the calmest person I've ever met, which was so incredibly reassuring. The team at Villa Farm are so experienced and knowledgeable, they think about every tiny detail to make sure your wedding day runs incredibly smoothly and allow you to have the best day ever without worrying about a single thing! We cannot recommend this venue more strongly. We even went back recently for a Christmas party and we were welcomed with big hugs and a lovely note in our seats welcoming us back and offering us a drink on the house. If that doesn't show you how much this team go the extra mile I don't know what will! Honestly, it was a dream and I would go back and do it all again every week if I could! Thanks Villa Farm.

Mr & Mrs Perks

Can’t fault villa farm york barn & the team enough for creating our special day. Nothing was too much trouble from first enquiry to the very last detail of the day. Nicole & corrina should be proud of the work they do. I can’t recommend the venue enough. The outside space was unreal, it allowed me to have my dream outdoor wedding. The staff was all friendly, approachable and very welcoming. The venue is great for small or big weddings.. the barn doesn’t need much decoration. The wooden floor made is easy for my dress to glide along. The drinks was amazingly priced for guests. Outdoor space on a raining day would still work.

The most perfect wedding and most perfect venue!

We had our wedding at York Barn this summer and we simply could not have asked for a better venue and people! From the first day we met Nicole, we knew we wanted to get married there, not just because of the stunning location, but because the team are genuinely so friendly, down-to-earth and helpful. Unlike some venues, where absolutely everything is a costly extra, York Barn include so much and are so flexible. Everything about the weekend was perfect, and Nicole, Corrine and the team could not have done more to make it that way. The onsite accommodation was superb, and made our wedding feel like more of a weekend event than just a day. There's literally not a thing we would change, the saddest thing is that we now don't get to speak with them and meet up regularly, the whole process was made so easy and fun. We'll be going back for anniversaries and special occasions for years to come!

Amazing! Would recommend to anyone

Could not speak more highly of York Barn!
We had our wedding here on Saturday 8th July 2023.

We met with Nicole for an initial viewing back in July 2021 and felt instantly looked after. She kept in touch with us regularly and her professional expertise really shone through. She helped us create a detailed timeline of our day and co-ordinated everything for us, we never had the opportunity to feel stressed! Nothing ever felt like too much trouble, she was absolutely fantastic.

We had planned to get married outside but unpredictable weather meant a quick turn around to facilitate the ceremony inside. Corrina, Nicole and their team were absolutely fantastic - not only did they treat us with kindness and patience when trying to make a decision but the military precision in which the team can turn the room around is amazing.

The team were so committed to making our day as special as possible. Our guests had nothing but good things to say about all the staff - we particularly enjoyed the bar staff dancing behind the bar! The staff didn’t feel like staff, it felt as though they were extra guests which was lovely!

We also stayed in Blossom Cottage on-site which was excellent - the team even took our cards back to the cottage during the evening do and filled up the dishwasher while they were there! The day after we headed back to the barn to clear away our decorations only to find that they had done most of the work for us and all we had to do was load up the car.

We would absolutely recommend York Barn to anyone. Such a lovely venue and team within it that doesn’t even have a hint of “corporate” about it. We will be forever grateful to everyone there who made the whole experience unforgettable - special shout out to Nicole who “never gets in the pictures” but totally deserves the recognition! Love from the Richardson-Forsters x

Can we do it all again please?

Where do we even start to begin to explain how great Villa Farm is?
We got married here in April and hired 9 of the holiday cottages for the weekend for the guests. York Barn is an absolutely stunning venue for a wedding, due to weather we were married indoor but the fairy lights and wooden beams made it a perfect ceremony setting. The fantastic space outside provided amazing scenery for our photographs. Corrina, Nicole and the team at Villa Farm are simply fantastic. Very friendly, welcoming and will make sure your day goes perfectly. The holiday cottages are great, the hot tubs are a fantastic touch and especially great for relaxing with your nearest and dearest the night before your wedding. Thank you so much Villa Farm, can we do it all over again?

Professional with attention to detail

We were married at villa farm July 22. The venue we’re fantastic and emailed us back pretty much straight away every-time. They went over every single detail of the day and the day went so smoothly.

The most incredible stress free day!

Expecting be a stressed out bride, I was far from it on the day. That was down to Nicole and Corrinas amazing wedding planning and organising on the day. They ensured everything ran smoothly and went to plan an I was so grateful.
We fell in love with the beautiful venue the minute we walked in, and knew that it was the right place for us to get married.
The whole team at Villa farm have excellent communication skills which made the whole process easier ( including the 2 occasions we had to change our date!) , even helping us to contact all the other suppliers to help us rearrange.
The team made sure that I had all basis covered, reminding me about things I hadn't thought about.
The cottages on site are perfect for the bridal party and family and friends, very convenient after a long day and too many proseccos!
The who venue has beautiful photo opportunities both inside and out. The fact that our 4 legged family member Jaffa could also join us for the day was a huge bonus
We couldn't of been happier with how our day went, and that really was all down to the amazing team at Villa Farm.. So thank-you!

Amazing team and amazing venue

I can’t put into words how much I loved working with Nicole, Ola and Corrina when planning my wedding at York Barn. They made the whole process such a pleasure, so easy and stress free. Every supplier and every guest commented on how lovely and professional all the staff were. The venue itself was absolutely beautiful; and having access Friday - Sunday made it such a smooth and fun weekend to set up and pack away. We stayed at Pheasant Rise which was absolutely wonderful, and great to get ready with the bridesmaids in the morning of the wedding. The team’s attention to detail never went unnoticed. I’m going to miss them all so much! Thank you for making our day the most perfect and special day I could’ve ever imagined.

Best Day Ever!

Villa Farm was the first venue we visited and straight away we knew it was the one!! We had 5 months to turn our dream day in to reality and it turned out better than we could have ever imagined. Nicole, Ola & Corrina were a great help in the run up to the day organising all the behind the scenes bits But even the day before they got stuck in and helped us set up. The venue is truly beautiful, and we got so many compliments regarding the staff on the day!! We’re sad for our day to be over but we will be definitely booking to stay over sometime soon!!

The team at York Barn couldn’t do enough for us! The run up to the wedding was smooth, with regular contact, planning and care. Special shout out to Nicole for waiting until the last minute to allow us the outdoor wedding we had dreamed of and for making a fantastic reel of our day. All of our guests loved the venue and family/friends loved staying on site in the gorgeous cottages. The team were honestly amazing and matched our sense of humour, easing any last minute nerves. Ola and the bar staff were fab too and so patient when asking for over 40 Baby Guinnesses to toast with. We had the most magical day and it wouldn’t have been possible without the team at York Barn.
Thank from the bottom of our hearts,
The Parkers xxx

The best day at Villa Farm!

We got married at Villa Farm in July '23 and we simply cannot recommend this venue enough. As a family run venue, we were made to feel so welcome from our very first meeting and everything had such a personal touch. Nicole was our co-ordinator and she was an absolute dream to work with, her attention to detail is amazing and we can honestly say we felt zero stress leading up to our day as Nicole took care of everything.
On the day, everything ran like clockwork and we could simply relax and enjoy.
The onsite accommodation is also excellent and allowed us to enjoy a full weekend with our family and friends. We look forward to staying again in the future and being able to reminisce about our day.
A huge thank you to Nicole, Ola, Corinna and the rest of the team for giving us an unforgettable day xx
