YOUR PERFECT DAY
Weddings at Ashley Wood Farm are unique and special due to the remarkable location and picturesque backdrop. We provide an informal atmosphere and a blank canvas for you to create your perfect day.
We know that your wedding will take time to get right so you have exclusive use of the site from first thing Friday morning to 1.00pm on Sunday giving you plenty of time to set up, and to clear away afterwards. To keep things relaxed we only have one wedding per week from 1st April to 31st October.
We are a licenced venue for Civil Ceremonies and there is a choice of four fantastic locations to be married in including under the pagoda in our lovely barn garden. We also have an beautiful indoor studio barn should it rain.
We can suggest some great local suppliers (see suppliers page) but you are also free to use whoever you like including caterers.
The spaces available for wedding hire are the large oak floored barn and barn garden, the milking barn with bar (no corkage charges) an equipped catering kitchen, the main courtyard, rear lawns overlooking Fonthill Lake, two stylish WC's plus a large parking field.
The main oak floored barn will seat 110 on round tables, and 150 on trestle tables in banqueting style.
There is also a delightful two bedroom lodge overlooking the lake for accomodation.
Included in the costs are all tables and chairs for the ceremony and reception, haybales and firepits. You are free to bring your own alcohol for the bar, and we do not charge corkage.
What people say....
Ashley Wood Farm is just the most phenomenal place. We rearranged our wedding 6 times during the pandemic so we could get married here. It did not disappoint. Bee and Ralph were wonderful and supported us throughout the whole journey. We finally got married in July a few weeks ago and thanks to them, we had the most incredible day. The gardens were stunning, the atmosphere was amazing and we could not have asked for a better place to get married. We stayed in the lodge for one night after the wedding which was perfect too. We would love to come back to visit this special place and would recommend to everyone. Thank you for everything.

Thank you so much for all of your support you showed us throughout the many years we have been in touch! We had the most incredible day on Saturday even with the rain! Your venue is incredible and so special and we are both so happy we decided to get married at Ashley Wood! All of our guests were blown away at how beautiful the day was!

Thanks so much for helping to make Ben and Laura’s special day so very special. Ashley Wood was the perfect venue for their reception and looked absolutely fabulous on the day. The fire pits and haybales were a big hit and the indoor spaces worked brilliantly for dining and dancing. Even the chickens seemed to enjoy the day! Many of the guests said they felt they were in France or Italy, but who needs to go that far, and some commented it was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever seen. Hopefully you will get some repeat business as a result.
The Lodge also was a super base for our family during the weekend, my Mum in particular enjoyed her little summer holiday after not having had a holiday for a year and a half.
We had the most amazing wedding day at Ashley Wood Farm, the venue is well kept and so naturally beautiful! We couldn’t have asked for anymore! & Bee & Ralph we’re so helpful running up to the event and on the day! Thank you so much again!!

Ashley Wood Farm is such an amazing venue, we got married here with the plan to host the ceremony outside, hoping for glorious weather. It completely ripped down all day but the barn (upstairs) was just as perfect, and the milking barn held our guests for both the reception and party! It was renamed the party barn! The best thing about Ashley Wood not including the views, is the ease and simplicity of the venue, it is great to be able to create your own vision with a blank canvas! Bee and Ralph were just great especially helping me into the ceremony and trying to keep me dry. Thank you again!

"Thanks again for all your help in making our wedding a truly unforgettable experience. The relaxed manner in which you guys operate, allowing us the time, space and flexibility to use the space as we wished meant we felt at ease and really enjoyed the venue (we looked at a lot of venues and this was a real added bonus, a rarity and something not to be undervalued – we found the "in at 11:00am, out at 01:00" aspect of a lot of venues a real turn off)".
"I’m sure we’ll be back one weekend over the winter or spring for a nostalgic weekend in the cottage if we can find the time!"
