East Afton Farmhouse oozes with character and country charm.
The original farmhouse and venue dates back to the 18th Century with oak beams, exposed brick and stone walls. The venue is very spacious and bright, and wraps around a main courtyard perfect for entertaining. The courtyard is the perfect spot to watch the sun go down.
There are three licensed barns around the courtyard, each providing a different offering with regard to size and style.
The venue has a farmhouse and annex that can accommodate up to 17 people. We also have Bell Tents in the paddocks during the summer months and further accommodation for up to 100 people nearby at Tapnell Farm.
All guests can benefit from discounts on the ferries as well.
Your four-legged friends are very welcome to join you for your stay and on your day of celebrations at East Afton Farmhouse. We can also assist in arranging a sitter to take care of them for the day so everyone can enjoy themselves knowing that their animals are in safe hands.
The venue is available on a dry hire or inclusive basis, with both weekend and mid week options.
The weekend option includes:
- Exclusive Venue Hire Thursday- Monday

- Accommodation for up to 17 people between a main house and annex

The venue does offer inclusive packages to take all the stress away from planning food and drinks, but for those that prefer to be hands-on with regard to managing elements of the wedding, we also offer dry hire.
With this option any suppliers can be used for any element of the wedding. The commercial kitchen can also be used by a third party caterer, as long as they sign a contract and have their food hygiene certificate.
You can provide your own drinks all day and night if you like! Welcome drinks, table wine, toasting drinks. Anything you want to give to your guests does not have a corkage charge.
We can also provide these in our inclusive package.
Or you can mix it up a bit and have a paid bar for the second half of celebrations. This can be managed and stocked by use with no extra charge to couples.
