Freedom to choose your own entertainment, photographer and florist
We don’t restrict which band or disco you choose for your wedding, but have plenty of recommendations if you need help. We also don’t restrict who you use for your photography/flowers/cake but, again, are happy to help.
Licensed for civil ceremonies
In addition to everything included above, we offer the option to host your wedding ceremony at Cott Farm. We are licensed for civil ceremonies both outdoors and inside. If you’d like to have your ceremony and reception in one place (so no need to worry about guests having to drive around after the ceremony!), you can choose to say your vows outdoors on our pergola with country views, or within the comfort of The Barn.
We also offer the option of ‘glamping’ on your wedding night. Our wedding venue campsite is available for your exclusive hire for the night of your wedding. Five luxury furnished bell tents are included in our glamping option, and there’s plenty of space for your guests to pitch their own tents. If you and your guests would like to stay overnight, you can enjoy a full English breakfast the following morning.
