WEDDING FACILITIES

The Event Barns overlook a private stone courtyard and are surrounded by East Afton Farmhouse, Country Annex, landscaped gardens, and the arable fields of the neighbouring farm.

The barn which adjoins the main farmhouse benefits from practical amenities such as its own bar, restrooms and catering preparation areas, as well as underfloor heating and lighting for parties that stretch from the day into the night. The large bi-folding doors welcome in light and country air to a space that can comfortably accommodate up to 70 seated guests.

Across the courtyard, another more rustic barn offers an alternative reception venue or extra space for parties to spread out into.

A new large barn with all facilities will also be available from the Summer and accommodate 170 sit down and 200 standing guests – see below for more details.

All three barns are fully licensed for wedding ceremonies making the venue both flexible and highly convenient.

“We had a small wedding for 11 people. The communication with Chloe in the run up during tricky Covid times was excellent. She made everything very clear and answered any questions we had. Some of the family stayed in the house which was clean and comfortable. We were able to order wine and food to the house for our arrival and had external Covid safe catering for our wedding breakfast.

It made a perfect small wedding venue and we had a very special relaxed day in what could have been very tricky circumstances!”
