Chilli Barn, part of a family farm for well over a century, stands on the Chevin overlooking Lower Wharfedale in a picturesque and varied setting of pine forest and meadows, ancient beech woods and rocky crags.
Transport links are excellent, with Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate roughly equidistant. There is also a good range of accommodation in the area.
Chilli Barn is a traditional Yorkshire stone barn unlike many others thanks to its comfortable size, rural setting near urban centres and sensitive conversion as a wedding venue.
Chilli Barn is an intimate space with a personal, friendly atmosphere and unique character. The high-arched, south-facing glazed wagon door overlooking meadows fills the ground floor and spacious mezzanine with light and the bi-folding double doors open wide giving direct access to the lawn. Materials and furnishings combine rustic charm with a touch of glamour.
Chilli Barn’s size makes it ideally suited to couples looking for an intimate, informal venue. Their maximum capacity is 60 during the day and 90 for the evening party.
They offer two day wedding hire as standard, giving you access the day before your wedding when all furnishings, place settings and any outdoor structures will be set up and staff on hand to assist. You can decorate and personalise the Barn with family and friends, or come and see what your chosen suppliers have created for you.
Their wedding co-ordinator will be available for advice from the day you book, arrange meetings to plan your day with you in detail and be there for your ceremony.
Our wedding co-ordinator, Natalie, meets couples for an onboarding meeting after booking, and again six months before their wedding day to discuss and advise on key points including guest numbers, catering choices, party plans and overall timings.
A plan is provided and an updated quotation if required. A meeting six weeks before the wedding day is used to review plans and confirm catering arrangements.
Chilli Barn is designed as a neutral backdrop for your wedding theme and many different approaches can be taken to decoration and dressing. You can decorate and personalise the Barn with friends and family the day before your wedding or employ a styling service. Furnishings, table settings and any outside structures will be in place and our premises manager will be there to get you up and running with access as required. Belongings will be gathered for collection the morning after.
Yes, the Barn’s lawn is ideal for setting up games to be played outside and for children to run about in safety.
Our wedding breakfast menus are mainly vegetarian and we love making lots of yummy vegan dishes too.
They are prepared and cooked in our own fully fitted catering kitchen in the lower ground floor of the Barn. Our menu is packed with enticing flavours and textures. Choose something delicious and different and let your guests discover how good a veggie feast can be!
Popular choices for evening receptions are pizza and spicy potato wedges or a grazing table including a cheeseboard. Catering vans can also be hired in under certain conditions.
Drinks packages are also vegan and our wines organic. Our drinks menu includes a range of premium gins, we can also source a cask of real ale from a local brewery for you.
Our music licence is indoor only and when loud music is playing the bi-folding doors are closed.
