Barn Weddings

Rustic Barn Weddings

A stunning 16th Century barn set in the very heart of the Lake District National Park. Originally a barn and stables this beautiful slate barn now plays host to our rustic barn weddings.

The barn sits at the head of the Rydal Valley and benefits from stunning views of the mountains, river and lake. Enjoy this stunning and romantic landscape anytime, but the barn and terrace really do come to life in the evenings as the twinkling fairy lights dance at dusk as the sun sets over Rydal Water - A treat every evening to look forward to!

The barn offers a more rustic feel to your wedding where you can choose to get married inside the barn beneath our willow and fairy light heart, or facing the open doorway with it's impressive arch of apple blossom and fairy lights.

We aim to smoothly design your wedding day with no awkward breaks. So after dinner you will be able to sit outside on our barn terrace enjoying the views or entertaining each other with our Gazebo Photo Booth while we adapt the barn for your evening reception. You can keep it simple and benefit from our in house Sonos System to play your own playlists, or you may wish to engage a professional musician or DJ.
