Your wedding matters to us. We want your wedding to become everything you want it to be. Whether it’s hosting your celebrations in our beautiful Corn Barn, or exchanging vows in one of our stunning peaceful settings. We understand it’s all about creating special memories that will last forever.
This is our home, a delightful working farm in the heart of Devon but now also your home to share with us for your perfect wedding.
We deliberately limit the number of weddings we host at The Corn Barn, allowing you time and space to prepare and adorn the venue as you wish, making it your own space. It is our aim that you, and your guests, should feel very much at home during your time with us and with this in mind, you are very welcome to arrange visits to the barn whilst planning your wedding, where we will be on hand to greet you and any family, friends or suppliers that may accompany you. As your sole point of contact during your communication with us, we enjoy getting to know you and hearing about all the ideas you have in mind for your big day. With our professional and flexible approach, we strive to fulfil wherever possible. The little things matter to us too!
Weddings at The Corn Barn are unhurried and easy going and very much about you as a couple. So whether it’s a small intimate gathering of 20 – 30 people or a larger affair up to our maximum of 180 seated guests, we go that extra mile to help things run smoothly and give you, and your guests, the most memorable of days.
We are fully licensed for civil ceremonies, whether inside the barn, outside in the courtyard, or in the idyllic setting of our Cider Orchard.
