About this space

Dovecot Barn is a Grade II listed, 18th-century barn, purposely renovated to host great celebrations. This venue is entirely licensed for civil ceremonies, so you can tie the knot and host a reception in one place. The interior design resembles the original state of the building with the rustic brick walls and timber beams but has been enhanced with contemporary accents and delicate decorations. The barn is very spacious and is ready to accommodate up to 100 seated guests. You’re free to change and customise the layout of the furnishings to create a perfect flow of your event.
