The magnificent high vaulted roof, floor to ceiling glass doors and latest technology will ensure both you and the barn are beautifully lit day or night and our stage is the idyllic setting for exchanging vows as well as showcasing your band or DJ. Underfloor heating and a wood burning stove will keep you cosy and warm in winter, and in summer our air-conditioning system will keep you cool throughout your function.
The Oak Barn's sliding glass doors flow into the courtyard that leads to Weaver's Cottages and provides the perfect entertaining area. Nearby, The Byre with its stunning views is the perfect place for drinks or watch the sun set whilst The Oak Barn is being transformed between your ceremony, Wedding Breakfast and evening reception, ensuring a seamless flow to your magical day. With a more rustic feel, our Pole Barn makes a superb games room or chill out area. And, if you require additional space, a marquee can be attached to both The Oak Barn and The Byre.
With classic elegance and all-encompassing views down the valley and across the pond, The Byre can accommodate 100 guests for your ceremony, 60 guests for formal dining or host 100 guests for evening receptions. The room flows onto the terrace with floor to ceiling glass doors, making it the perfect place to watch the sun go down with friends, be inspired, or relax and rejuvenate. Wandering away from the terrace you will discover our picturesque pond with Coy Carp and upcycled stable post pontoon whilst enjoying the trickling music of our waterfall.
This versatile space is licensed for civil ceremonies and provides a more intimate space for smaller events and functions and, like The Oak Barn, it has every modern convenience with underfloor heating and state-of-the-art technology.

The Pole Barn
Our large open fronted barn offers a more rustic style and comes complete with fairy lights and power. Partly used as our wood store, it is also home to a working 1956 Fordson Major tractor. The chopped wood, original oak door from The Oak Barn and rusty decorative screens make this another unique location for nuptial vows and photos within our farmyard.

Gardens & Grounds
Naturally cocooned by the landscape, The Oak Barn, The Byre, Pole Barn, Weaver's Cottages and our well are all Grade II listed and clearly marked on historic maps of 1777 and 1800. Frame Farm sits in a cosy, secluded position to provide a true haven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
All areas have been landscaped for accessibility, ensuring guests can move between the various buildings with ease while enjoying the views from the outside terraces and courtyard.
The gardens have been planted with care and consideration to give them a delicate, natural feel that is in keeping with our wider environment. Grasses and ferns provide shelter and texture, while perennials offer vibrant colour throughout the year.
The lily pond, with its pontoon made from upcycled stable posts, makes the perfect backdrop for photographs or the ideal retreat for some peaceful reflection to the relaxing sound of the waterfall.
Beyond, you have the freedom of over 20 acres to explore. There are sheep for company in the pasture and birdlife aplenty overhead, including the inhabitants of Woodpecker Wood, a new addition to our woodland that has been planted with native broadleaf trees.
