The Setting

Set within 40 acres of rolling Durham countryside, close to the market town of Barnard Castle, the working farm emits the charming appearance one would expect from a country stead; lush green fields, idyllic stone buildings, sprawls of wildflowers and endearing residents, including Shetland ponies, alpacas, llamas… and a donkey named Dottie.

The Vibe

Runa Farm is brought to you by the creators behind two of the North East’s premier, multi-award award-winning, wedding venues – Newton Hall and Le Petit Chateau.

Sharing the same high standards as these highly-praised venues but embodying its own unique look and spirit, Runa Farm brings authentic White Isle style and glamour to a secluded County Durham beauty spot, offering a completely fresh wedding approach to those whose hearts beat to an alternative rustic rhythm.

The concept of the farm is natural luxury, and the feels are chic, simple, harmonious and calm. Exceptional quality and comfort are key, along with hints of pure Balearic beauty and fields full of romance.

Exclusive to couples on their special day, Runa Farm can deliver a full-on festival farm wedding complete with open-air vows, live music and outdoor dining, or chic, Mediterranean style celebrations laced with Ibizan elegance… as well as everything else that’s in between!

This is a brand new venue and, as such, is still being created – some of the imagery used is from their sister properties and doesn’t reflect the completed venue so please get in touch with the team to find out more.
