Fernhill has played host to around 100 weddings in the last ten years and specialises in offering a personalised and relaxed rural backdrop for your wedding day. The weddings at Fernhill are tailored to you having a unique experience that can’t be achieved at other more corporate venues. We allow a relaxed atmosphere and the wedding to take place over a whole weekend with a two-night stay that allows you exclusive access to the site. You can arrive Friday and leave Sunday at your leisure and there is no pressure to leave so the next wedding party can come in.
There are two different main venue options, the Horseshoe Barns and the Agricultural Sheds. With the existing accommodation and camping field it is the perfect alternative wedding destination. There are many different ways in which we can use the farm for your celebration so please get in touch and we can discuss the options.
The Horseshoe Barns are the most popular option for weddings and many people use them as the focal point point for their day.
The Horseshoe Barns are all one building with connected rooms. The layout of the barns, from left to right, starts with Wren Cottage leading through a hallway with washroom into Hive Hall, which is the main function space. Another hall with washroom lets out to the bar, which leads through to the dining area and adjoining catering kitchen. All rooms have direct access to the courtyard outside.
Horseshoe Barns Facilities
Under-floor heating throughout - Professional-standard, fully kitted-out catering kitchen - Private bar area to use as you wish fitted with fridges, filter coffee machine, urn and dishwasher (no corkage charges apply) - Fully accessible ladies and gents washrooms with 6 power showers, 7 loos, lots of sinks and big mirrors - Courtyard with fire pit - Dining room to seat up to 40 guests with crockery and tableware included - Hive Hall is frequently used as a space for wedding ceremonies and main wedding reception and can seat up to 100 people in various different table combinations. - Wren Cottage can sleep up to 8 with a king, double and four queen single bunks.
This outdoor area can be accessed from all the doors of the Horseshoe barns giving additional space for attendees to spill out and enjoy the sunshine during the day or the fire pit in the evening. We can also erect a marquee over this area to increase overall capacity of the venue.
There are 2 agricultural sheds on the farm that can be transformed for your ceremonies and these offer an alternative venue to the Horseshoe barns. For the more adventurous, there are also other outdoor spaces out on the farmland that can be used for your ceremony such as the Stone Circle or the old quarry – and if the weather turns out bad then the sheds are available as a wet weather back-up.
