Lambing barn licensed to host civil ceremonies for couples who wish to get married in a rustic, rural countryside location.

Surrounded by epic views of Dartmoor and not a neighbour in sight, Dunwell Farm offers couples the chance to make our ‘blank canvas’ venue their own. We offer a 4 day exclusive hire period so that our couples have time to make all their creative visions a reality. Hire includes exclusive use of our beautiful on-site glampsite with 5 furnished bell tents which allows couples and their guests to spend some quality time together getting ready and celebrating their special day. We relish in our ability to help execute a personally planned wedding that is authentic to our couples. Hopefully our enjoyment shows in our work with couples, as we genuinely do love the work we do, and hopefully our experience in the industry is proving more and more valuable to couples as the years go by. We view ourselves privileged to live and farm this beautiful part of the world and take pleasure in sharing it with our guests.

Top Wedding Tips

Make decisions about your day that reflect you as a couple; not because you feel you have to do things in a certain way/order/style - it's all about the two of you.

Choose wedding suppliers on your gut instinct. These will be the people rooting for you and working hard to make sure your day goes perfectly and who will go above and beyond to make things happen.

There will always be something you forget to plan for, but there will also always be something you hadn't planned for that turns out to be one of the best and most memorable parts of your day.

As dairy, beef and sheep farmers we feel privileged to live and work in such a beautiful part of the world. After having so much fun hosting our own wedding reception in our sheep barn in 2012, the idea was born to turn the barn into a summer-only wedding venue and share the farm with other couples. Our licence for ceremonies was approved in 2014 and since then we've had the pleasure of hosting many beautiful weddings here at Dunwell. We spend the winter lambing sheep in the barn and once that's finished by April/May we clean it out and get ready for weddings - we joke that we spend more time in the barn than our house! We'd love to hear from couples who are creative, outdoor-sy and love a party, we truly love getting to know our couples and are always a bit gutted when the wedding is over. Pete and Libby x
