In the ancient rural parish of Whittington on the edge of the Cotswolds and built at the head of an expansive valley, Anthology Farm is a tenderly renovated trinket of Gloucestershire history. Built 300 years ago using local limestone quarried from the Inferior Oolites, this home has Jurassic bones. Yet, the contemporary spirit abounds. With 200 pieces of artwork, the farmhouse was given a new lease of life as a family home before throwing open its barn doors to provide free-spirited lovers a romantic place to tie the knot against a photographer’s dream backdrop of fairy trails, woods, and streams.
A blank canvas for creative couples — or just the ticket for minimalist duos — the wedding barn lends touches of wood and rattan but provides a neutral backdrop for florals and bunting and dessert tables galore. Bring in caterers for a classic wedding breakfast, or set the mood lighting to colour-pop and back up the pizza truck for a garden fête. As a luxury self-catering home, Anthology Farm can accommodate up to eighteen guests, including babies and children, with rooms split between The Cotswold Barn and The Meal Barn.
