Exclusive use wedding barn
The Barn at Cott Farm is an exclusive use wedding venue. In other words, the only people at The Barn on your wedding day will be you, your guests and our discreet staff. Consequently, you’ll have privacy throughout your special day.
Licensed for marriages and civil ceremonies
Cott Farm is licensed for marriages and civil partnerships. You can choose from an outdoor wedding ceremony at our pergola with stunning countryside views, or indoors in the comfort of the barn.
Decorations & styling
The Barn is neutrally decorated and includes furniture, fairy lights, lanterns and a range of styling props to choose from. You’ll also have access the day before to add your own decorations and flowers.
No corkage wedding venue
You have the option to supply your own drinks during the daytime. Additionally, we will give you help and guidance when it comes to selecting drinks and calculating quantities, and we don’t charge corkage. However, if the logistics of getting the drinks to us in advance are an unnecessary hassle, we can provide drinks for your guests instead for a sensible price.
Inclusive wedding packages
Cott Farm’s catering team offer a choice of menus to suit you – from informal sharing platters to three course meals, whilst in the evening you can choose for your guests to enjoy freshly made pizzas baked in the wood fired oven, a traditional hog roast or other tempting feasts. Choose from one of our set menus, or write your own!
The Barn at Cott Farm has a campsite, which is available for your exclusive use for the night of your wedding. With stunning country views, the campsite is in the adjacent field and accessed via a wooden bridge. In addition to our luxury bell tents furnished with proper king sized beds, there’s plenty of space for your guests to pitch their own tents.

We had the best day! What an incredible venue you have built up. The pizza was amazing, especially the fiery one. Thanks again so much.

The best day of our lives
Having our venue as The Barn at Cott Farm was the best day of our lives. From start to finish, Becca and Ollie were the most amazing hosts that we could have asked for and nothing was ever too much trouble. All of the food was beautiful, definitely recommend the stone baked pizzas that everyone went crazy for. The venue and views were incredible and it will always leave a special mark in our lives from the first day of married life.
The best place we could have ever dreamt of. Becca and Ollie, you were literally the best and we can’t thank you both enough.

Such a magical venue
Attended friends daughters wedding yesterday and such a magical venue full of rustic charm. Hosts and staff were lovely and accommodating and even offered sun cream due to weather😀. Watching pizzas being cooked outside in the evening just added to the charm of this venue as we sat under sails looking out at the beautiful scenery reflecting on what a fabulous day it was.

James, wedding guest
A perfect day
A day which stood out as being special, magical and full of love, sunshine and fresh air!! The contrast to London with all the rolling fields, beautiful views and a laid-back hog roast was exactly as I had hoped it would be. We had a perfect day.
TARA, Sister of the bride 09/07/16
Truly amazing from start to finish
We got married here in the Summer of 2018. It was the perfect venue for us. The owners of Cott Farm Barn were truly amazing from start to finish. Their communication was great and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The advice they had to offer around how we should go about planning the day was superb and helped the day come together tremendously. They are passionate about what they do and it shows. We were very lucky with the weather but felt like even if we hadn’t been, we were in good hands. We highly recommend considering Cott Farm Barn for your wedding. It scored a 10/10 for us.

Can’t recommend Cott Farm and the team highly enough
We fell in love with this place when we first saw it and despite viewing other venues our hearts were already set. We can’t thank Becca and Ollie enough for everything they did for us and making our wedding day extraordinary. They were professional, unflappable and so accommodating to all our guests no matter how spirited and unusual their requests; they truly are a lovely couple. We always felt the day was in good hands, everything running seamlessly and quietly taken care of. The day felt truly ours, bringing everything we wanted to such a beautiful venue and to make for a really personal and special occasion. We can’t recommend Cott Farm and the team highly enough; both we and our guests were blown away by the gorgeous setting, delicious food and wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Thank you so much for everything. xx
