East Afton Farmhouse is an impressive 18th century farm house with event barns and adjoining annex holiday cottage surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the site of the 1970’s Isle of Wight Festival.
Licensed for civil ceremonies, this is the perfect venue for big country weddings and events, offering an intimate and unique location.
East Afton sleeps up to 18 across both the main house and annex, with facilities and luxuries that include a plush cinema room. Both units can also be rented separately for smaller group and family holidays, subject to availability.
We also have Bell Tent accommodation in our paddock during July & August.
The dedicated event barns make East Afton perfect for weddings. Bordering a pleasant and secluded courtyard, and nestled between the main house and annex, the two contrasting barns complete a fully contained setup for ceremonies, receptions, and guest accommodation. An additional larger barn will also be available from summer 2021. The full venue can also be hired for other large group celebrations, and corporate functions.
