Christmas Weddings at Cott Farm

The Barn at Cott Farm is a spacious country wedding venue nestled in a valley in Somerset. 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. 

Cott Farm is licensed for civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies indoors (as well as outside), and your guests can enjoy the warmth and comfort of our spacious heated barn, with stylish, festive decor, and twinkling fairy lights on the wooden beams for the perfect ambience.

After your ceremony, you and your guests will enjoy a glass of prosecco or mulled local cider, catch up with friends and perhaps have photographs around the venue and grounds, before sitting down for your three course wedding breakfast served with wine.

The Barn is furnished with handmade natural wood tables and wooden chairs. Windows and skylights allow natural light to flood the barn during day, while at night the fairy lights on original wooden beams and dimmable paper lanterns create the perfect ambiance.

After your meal, each guest will be served prosecco, ready for your speeches and toasts.

You can then enjoy your choice of entertainment for the evening until midnight. We don’t restrict which band or disco you choose for your wedding as everyone’s taste is different, however we are on hand to give recommendations for local wedding bands if you’d like them.

Outside, the large fire pit provides a place to relax with friends, before enjoying pizzas hand-stretched and baked in our wood-fired oven.
