The Setting

Nestled in a pretty country valley, a church tower punctuating the backdrop of mature trees, the Great Barn offers a modern wedding in a classically romantic location. Situated in the heart of a medieval courtyard, the fifteenth century Barn has been restored via award-winning architectural design to create a sublime wedding venue.

The Vibe

The vast 45ft vaulted oak ceiling evokes the atmosphere of a cathedral while the slim windows and adjoining 16th Century Roundhouse are a nod to its origins. The detail, however, is entirely modern. Contemporary furnishings and the chic simplicity of the interiors allow you to put your own stamp on your day; underfloor heating emanates from beneath the slate and elm floors, while state of the art lighting and sound technology allows for a change of mood at the flick of a switch.

The soft glow of the low-lit Barn sets a dreamy ambience for a civil ceremony. Couples planning a church ceremony may choose to marry at Ashton Church, which is just a short stroll down a country lane.

Toast your union in the glorious walled gardens. In poor weather, the stunning West Barn makes a perfect setting for a drinks reception.

The Great Barn accommodates up to 190 guests for the wedding breakfast and the adjoining Roundhouse makes an ideal space for a bar or chill out area. In keeping with the venue’s ethos of style and quality the food and waiting staff is provided by the best wedding caterer in the country. Dartmoor Kitchen, national winners at the Wedding Industry Awards, offer delicious menus and superb service at preferential rates for Great Barn clients.

Just a few feet from the Barn, two beautiful cottages serve as a comfortable settings for the bridal party to make their preparations, a sanctuary for young children to nap during the festivities or a romantic bolthole for you to spend your first night as newly weds.

From low-key to lavish, this truly distinctive venue invites you to pour your personalities into your wedding day – and relish every beautiful moment.
