The Haybarn difference
A unique and beautiful DIY wedding venue for those who do not want the typical hotel conveyor belt experience.
An exclusive use wedding venue
. At The Haybarn you will have complete exclusivity of use the entire site. No other weddings will take place on the same day or even the same week, you will not have random strangers in the background of your photos. Hotels venues tend to have other guests staying at the hotel, often have a Gym or spa attracting other people.
At the Haybarn, we limit the number of weddings per year, thus giving you the best personal experience possible, with only 5 outdoor festival weddings in a year, and with the barn we do not operate weddings during winter months.
We get to know each couple, some of which have even kept in touch with us. We love how every wedding at the Haybarn is totally different to the next. We would love to hear your plans and what you have in mind.
What we are not, is a conveyor belt style wedding venue with one wedding after another back to back. We would love to show you around and discuss your plans.

This is very much a venue for those who are not afraid of expressing their style and doing it their way. Totally D.I.Y ! . Customise every aspect of your big day, and let your creative side flow.
