Chilli Barn


Information For Chilli Barn

Chilli Barn is a Yorkshire stone barn, lovingly converted to be a special place for relaxed, intimate weddings in a dramatic rural setting.

Chilli Barn is a recently converted stone barn on the edge of the Chevin Forest Park, north of Leeds. The Barn offers an intimate venue for wedding ceremonies and celebrations, combining the charm and character of its rural heritage with a touch of glamour and modernity. It is surrounded by meadows, woodland and crags overlooking Wharfedale and offering wonderful photo opportunities.
The Barn’s old wagon doorway, now glazed with bifolding doors, opens onto a terrace and lawn. Across the cobbled yard behind the Barn is The Cheerful Chilli vegetarian restaurant which inspires our catering. Barn hire includes access before and after wedding day for decorating and dressing the Barn and its grounds.
Chilli Barn is licensed for marriages, so you can enjoy your whole wedding day in one place. Our wedding co-ordinator works closely with couples from booking to wedding day with scheduled meetings and support throughout.
Wedding ceremnies at Chilli Barn can seat 60 guests and we can serve a wedding breakfast buffet for up to 60 in the Barn or for table service, up to 36. To provide more space and increase the dining and reception options we offer packages using marquees, tipis and yurts. In the evening the ground floor is cleared for entertainment and the mezzanine is available for party food and quieter socialising. Up to 90 guests can be invited to the evening party.
The spacious lawn outside the Barn with views across the fields is perfect, weather permitting, for your drinks reception, informal outdoor dining and evening gatherings on straw bales around the fire pit. Your guests can even sit outside as you hold an outdoor ceremony. All packages are designed to provide sufficient shelter whatever the weather.
Wedding breakfasts are freshly cooked in our own Barn kitchen and inspired by the Cheerful Chilli’s varied and tasty vegetarian menu with Mediterranean, Asian and Mexican influences. We cater for special dietary needs and offer a lunchbox meal for children.
We offer complimentary drinks packages for your reception, wedding breakfast and toasts. Bespoke packages are also available. The bar is well stocked and reasonably priced and local breweries offer a wide range of real cask ales.
The average price per day guest including hire, wedding breakfast and complimentary drinks is in the range £90-£130. Our wedding planner can provide a detailed estimate after meeting to view Chilli Barn and discuss guest numbers and catering preferences.
