The Barn is completely flexible. We’re lucky enough to have two beautiful barn areas, the larger barn can comfortably accommodate up to 150 seated guests for your wedding breakfast, and in addition to this we have a separate, adjoining reception barn, which provides a perfect space for our ‘tiny weddings’ of between 15 and 30 guests. The smaller barn can also be used as an area for your welcome drinks and canapés in chilly weather, it’s a perfect setting and enjoys beautiful views to the sea.
In addition to this, there is another area which can be used to hold indoor ceremonies if required. There is also a converted stable
which provides a perfect space for your caterers. Outside The Barn, the court yard has views overlooking the sea, providing a perfect location for photographs, reception drinks and canapés in summer. The yard also enjoys beautiful sunsets.
At The Barn we are completely flexible, you can trim, decorate and furnish everything as much or as little as you wish, and we are always on hand to give you help and advice should you need it. Both the yard and barn provide a perfect blank canvas to be decorated to your very own taste, wedding theme and colour scheme. The use of hay bales, bunting, pretty vases and festoon lighting all add to the rustic charm of the venue. We also have our own delicious spring water, which we serve to your guests during your meal in lovely glass bottles, at no extra cost.
Our hire packages give you exclusive access to The Barn for an extra full day before your guests arrive to give you plenty of time to prepare, enjoy and relax!
The facilities at The Barn include 8 toilets and 3 showers. Set in 7 acres of countryside, The Barn also has plenty of space for guests to stay, we have a newly refurbished holiday cottage with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, complete with a private decked area overlooking the coastline and sea. Your guests can also choose to camp in our beautiful paddock which enjoys glorious views to the sea. Guests can either bring their own tents, (for which we charge them a small pitch fee), or to make the occasion even more special and memorable, they are welcome to hire one of our beautiful bell tents. All guests have full use of the rustic camping kitchen, loos and hot showers, and we have also created a special campers' ‘dressing area’ which includes changing rooms, large mirrors with seating, electricity points for hairdryers etc., together with a rustic wardrobe for guests to hang their wedding outfits the night before. All these facilities make The Barn a unique coastal wedding celebration venue. There is ample car parking space for all your guests.
The Barn is set in a stunning location overlooking the sea and the South Devon coastline. We're just a 10 minute walk from South Milton Sands, making us an ideal place for couples wanting to take some of their photographs on the beach. We are in a designated area of 'outstanding natural beauty,' just 4 miles from the seaside town of Salcombe in one direction, and 4 miles from Kingsbridge in the other direction, making us a lovely area to visit. If your guests require accommodation, there is something to suit every budget on our doorstep, including self-catering cottages, bed & breakfasts, and hotels, all of which enable your guests to easily find suitable accommodation locally.
