The Cider Barn

The Cider Barn is licensed for indoor civil ceremonies and partnerships for up to 120 guests. This beautifully restored barn with traditional oak beams and full height glazing at the gable end bathes the venue in natural light bringing the outside in and providing breathtaking views over the walled garden and Blackdown Hills whilst you exchange your vows. Our sophisticated sound system can play your choice of music throughout the barn during your ceremony, alternatively, there is ample room 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”.

Your Wedding Breakfast also takes place in The Cider Barn, so whilst your guests are enjoying canapes and drinks in The Press Bar or Walled Garden after your ceremony, our amazing events team and caterers will be preparing The Cider Barn in readiness for your special feast.

Once you and your guests have enjoyed your bespoke menu prepared for you by one of our talented caterers, you will then move into the Press Bar to relax and mingle with your evening guests whilst our events team prepare the Cider Barn for your evening reception. There is a raised section in the Cider Barn which makes a perfect stage area for your band or disco and our events team will also remove a few tables and chairs to make room for the dance floor!



The Party

The celebratory ‘party’ element of the wedding day traditionally commences at around 8pm when the DJ or band invites the Bride and Groom onto the dance floor for their first dance. This takes place in The Cider Barn, the same fabulous barn in which your wedding breakfast was served. We also have some great breakaway areas for those wishing to catch up with family and friends, enjoy a sociable chat over a very reasonably priced drink in The Press Bar 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.
