Despite the day being rainy it was perfect & the venue looked beautiful...

We can seat up to 90 guests in the barn itself on round tables and comfortable upholstered chairs. Extra seating can be accommodated in the adjacent garden room. This stunning extension becomes a delightful reception area with French doors to the veranda overlooking the pond. It has been designed to complement the barn, with its exposed oak beams and vaulted ceiling.

For your outdoor entertaining, and situated next to the Barn, we offer the use of the Cart Lodge, complete with patio furniture. This provides the ideal setting for a hog roast or barbeque. The Gazebo is also at your disposal for those special photographs.

Our bar facility offers a wide selection of drinks; prices compare favourably with the local pubs.

Our Story

We are proud to offer Crabbs Barn, a stunning 15th century building, set in the open countryside, as a beautiful wedding venue.
The Barn had been in agricultural use until bought by the current owners, who, at the request of their own daughter, gave a great deal of attention to its renovation and conversion to enable it to be used for the first time as a venue for her wedding.

Very much a family concern, it attracted much local interest and admiration to the extent that it is now one of the most popular wedding venues in the area. Please read on to appreciate the special facilities offered by this stunning location for your wedding.
