Exclusive hire & time to decorate

The Barn at Cott Farm is nestled in an idyllic valley. To protect our surroundings and preserve the peace, we only host one wedding a week. This means your special day will be truly special and unique to you.

When you hire The Barn for your wedding, you’ll have exclusive use the day before to allow you plenty of time to get things just right. The Barn comes furnished with handmade tables and chairs, fairy light bedecked wooden beams, dimmable lighting and bunting. There is already neutral decoration and natural light, but you are free to decorate the venue to suit your theme. You’ll also have access to The Barn the day after to pack away your belongings and gifts without rushing.

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. Marjory & Stu xx
