The Haybarn difference
A unique and beautiful venue for those who do not want the typical hotel conveyor belt experience.
A positively vibrant place for Pagan weddings, Handfasting, Retreats and Wellness events.
An exclusive use venue
At The Haybarn you will have complete exclusivity of use the entire site. No other event will take place on the same day.
Hotels venues tend to have other guests staying at the hotel, often have a Gym or spa attracting other people, a very corporate feel and a totally different energy.
We don’t do back to back events.
We can’t wait to hear from you and to show you around and discuss your ideas.

We love how every event & wedding at the Haybarn is totally different to the next.

Sober weddings & Events - Dry bar
We have no alcohol on site, our bar will work with you to offer delicious zero alcohol drink options.
How about a Cacao ceremony too? it is all possible.
Choosing to not serve alcohol is largely a personal choice for all of our couples.
Some couples simply want everyone to remain sober, and that can be even more of a desire if they’re
expecting a lot of children to be at their wedding.
Others choose to not serve alcohol for religious reasons, while some people keep it off of the menu to save money.
Of course, couples might wish to not have alcohol present if they or a loved one are currently in recovery.
There are lots of reasons to consider hosting a dry wedding, and they’re all valid!
A great signature mocktail can be just as much fun. Plus, it’s a way to allocate your budget toward serving an incredible
menu filled with great food and entertainment for your guests to actually remember!
Alcohol brings out emotions and amplifies them, even anger and conflict sometimes.
Not a good mix for a wedding.
Guests will join you on around the fire pit, sing along with he band, or get on the dance floor too.
The best part? Your choice to forgo serving alcohol will be in honor of your personal values and priorities,
which is the entire point of your wedding day after all.
