Exclusive use barn wedding venue
The Barn at Cott Farm is an exclusive use wedding venue. The only people at The Barn on your wedding day will be you, your guests and our discreet staff. This means 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.
Time to decorate
Hosting a maximum of one wedding each week helps preserve the peace of our stunning surroundings and makes each wedding at Cott Farm truly special. The Barn is neutrally decorated and includes furniture, fairy lights, lanterns and a range of styling props to choose from, but you’ll have the whole 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. We will provide glasses and staff to serve your drinks, and give you help and guidance when it comes to selecting drinks and calculating quantities. We don’t charge corkage. 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.

Attended friends daughters wedding yesterday and such a magical venue full of rustic charm. Hosts and staff were lovely and accomadating 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.

Having our venue as the Barn at Cott farm was the best days of our lives. From start to finish, Becca and Ollie were the most amazing hosts that we could of 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.

LUCY & TERESA
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.

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
