Festival country weddings
An outdoor field wedding is an ideal blank canvas to customise your wedding how you want it.
At The Haybarn you can host an outdoor festival wedding, and also camp with friends and family,
and enjoy the outdoors over 3 or 4 days!
A customised outdoor wedding gives you so much more possibilities compared to the decorated function
rooms that hotels provide, which tend to often be impersonal and very formatted.
Our grounds can be hired for exclusive & private use for festival weddings, birthdays, and corporate events.
You are sure to enjoy your big day without having to share the venue with another couple.
Nestled in an area of Natural Outstanding Beauty, The Haybarn is an ideal venue
for festival wedding parties and other events in the heart of the Shropshire Hills.
We limit the numbers of festival outdoor weddings per year to only 5 dates between
May and September.
Each festival wedding on our site is unique and our mission is to offer you a very personalised service.
By limiting the number of outdoor weddings on our site we feel that you are going to have a great experience.
Most hotels, and formal venues are not always exclusive, and charge even more for exclusivity. And with a wedding
every other day can have a very impersonal "conveyor belt" feel to them. Maximising capacity is their driving force.
Booking our grounds as a wedding venue will mean that you will be getting our full attention from the moment you enquire.
We are at hand to help and advise you with various ideas and options, and help customise every aspect of your wedding.
We allow you be as creative as you wish. We are more than happy to help with contacts for marquees, tipis,
stretch tents etc.. When it comes to catering, we do not insist that you to have set menus or a specific caterer.
Nor do we insist on our choice of wines. We do not have any corkage charges, and we do not sell drinks ourselves.
If you prefer for someone to organise everything for you, we can also put you in touch with a local professional
wedding planner. Don't forget we have a beautiful rustic barn also available for 100 guests
We do not have a wedding licence for the ceremony. You will need to get married in a church or registry office.
How about Fish and Chips, Paella, Mezes, grazing menus, Burritos, Street food, Hog roasts, barbeques, tapas,
Afternoon teas, 3 course sit down meals, Cheese and wine..

A beautiful setting
The HAYBARN wedding venue is situated in the heart of the rural Shropshire hills, a designated Area Of Natural Outstanding Beauty.
Our grounds are immaculately kept and bordered by a brook and mature trees. The festival wedding field is flat, making
the erection of marquees easier, providing a maximum of useful space to design, theme and layout your wedding
how you want to. Your guests will left with unforgettable memories for years to come.
The area is peaceful and quiet, with no motorways and traffic noise to spoil the atmosphere.
You will have beautiful views of the Shropshire hills with lots of walks and open country side.
Furthermore there are two local pubs nearby within walking distance, as well as a village park with swings for
the kids just a couple of minutes down the lane.
Hiring a farmers field can be another option for you of course, but bare in mind that most farmers fields would have an uneven surface
with weeds, thistles, mole hills, or livestock droppings, no toilets, no drinking water, no electrics, and no accommodation.
The HAYBARN at Brook House Farm is not a working farm. our fields are very well maintained all year round, the grass is perfect
for the erection of marquees, tepees, or tents. Ideal for playing lawn games on a sunny afternoon, or simply enjoy the shaded area by the brook.

Marquees, Tipis or Stretch tents:
We have several suppliers we can recommend at various budgets.
You first need to determine the size of marquee that you will require.
To work this out, you will need to consider the following questions:
1. How many guests will attend your wedding during the daytime?
2. Will you be having a sit down meal?
3. Will you want a buffet area?
4. Will you have a stage for a band and/or DJ?
5. Will you need space for a bar?
6. Will you have a dance floor?
7. Will your caterers need a separate catering tent?
8. How many additional guests do you expect in the evening?
When you come to view our facilities we will explain all of the options and possibilities we have for you.
