The Cider Barn

The Cider Barn

The Cider Barn is licensed for indoor civil ceremonies and partnerships for up to 156 guests.  This beautiful traditional cob barn restored with flying oak trusses and locally crafted chandeliers creates a stunning setting.  The floor to gable glazing at the southern end of the barn bathes the room in natural light bringing the outside in and providing breathtaking views over The Walled Garden and Blackdown Hills.  Our sophisticated sound system can play your choice of music throughout the barn during your ceremony.  Alternatively, there is ample space for a string quartet, harpist of even a small choir. The cosy atmosphere sets the scene perfectly for a romantic winter wedding and that special moment you say “I do”.

After your ceremony, guests can enjoy canapés and drinks in the Press Bar or Walled Garden before taking their seats to feast on your wedding breakfast in The Stable Barn.

Once you and your guests have enjoyed your bespoke menu, prepared for you by one of our talented caterers, you can return to the Press Bar and The Cider Barn to relax, mingle with your evening guests and dance the night away.  The raised section in The Cider Barn makes a perfect stage area for your band or DJ over the polished concrete dance floor!

 

 

The Party

The celebratory ‘party’ element of the wedding day traditionally commences at around 8pm when the DJ or band invite the Bride and Groom onto the dance floor for their first dance.  This takes place in The Cider Barn.  We also have some great breakaway areas for those wishing to catch up with family and friends, enjoy a sociable chat over a drink from our team of expert bartenders or alfresco in our romantically lit Walled Garden.

Our contemporary polished dance floor and sophisticated lighting system enables us to create the perfect romantic atmosphere for your first dance and evening party. You have the freedom to choose your evening entertainment according to your style and taste.  Couples often opt for a live band or DJ but if you’re looking for some inspiration please visit our online Suppliers Directory for some great performers and contact details.

 

 

Not at all.  By carefully planning your space, this can be amazing!
The Cider Barn is very well insulated due to the thick stone construction so it remains cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter.  The cosy wood burner and underfloor heating throughout make it toasty warm!
