Information For Eden Wedding Barn

Set in 100 acres of outstanding natural beauty, Eden Barn is an exclusive and intimate licensed Wedding venue that will immerse your guests in the charm and character of Cumbria’s enchanting Upper Eden Valley.

From the vaulted ceiling, to the exposed stone walls and limestone flagged floor, our traditional 200-year-old Westmorland stone barn offers a unique rustic elegance that can be tailored to suit any style conscious couple’s theme.

Enter through our traditional oak barn doors and walk up the aisle surrounded by all the character you could wish for, before you and your partner exchange vows under our enchanting canopy of festoon lights, or under our handcrafted outdoor pavilion with its stunning scenic backdrop.

For couples seeking a church wedding, there are several beautiful historic churches nearby.

In addition to the main barn we have a spacious adjoining Reception/Bar area with a striking floral canopy, cosy seating areas, and timber panelled bathrooms.

Guests are also able to enjoy our outside areas, which offer stunning views of the surrounding scenery from a landscaped lawn and patio which feature natural wooden seating and a thatched gazebo.

Eden Barn is run by the Harker family and we are conscious that this is your day and we want to make our venue feel personal and special to you.

Catering is provided by our sole supplier Southcott Events, who can create bespoke menus using locally sourced produce, and serve your evening food in style from ‘The Shack’.

The accommodation brochure on our website, www.edenbarn.co.uk, highlights the excellent local accommodation available nearby. We also have an on-site business from which you can hire tables and chairs.

We are located in Little Musgrave, 3 miles from both Kirkby Stephen and Brough, and 4 miles from the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The nearest train station is only 5 miles away and is on the idyllic Settle to Carlisle Railway line. Eden Barn is also close to Appleby and Ravenstonedale.

Eden barn - perfection
What can I say?! The most stunning venue I’ve ever seen. Cliff and Carolyn were exceptional hosts. They made it their task to make everything run as smoothly as possible. They were so accommodating. We used their preferred caterers; southcottes and oh wow!!!! Just wow!!!
We can not thank the Harkers enough for providing us with the most perfect venue. The church, the setting, the barn, the cottages we hired. Everything was perfect. I Pray we get invited to a wedding here so we can enjoy it as much as we did our own.
The most beautiful, special memories for us and our families in the most beautiful venue ever. Thank you.

Eden Barn is the most amazing venue, and we fell inlove with it the first time we saw it. Cliff, Carolyn and the family are just the most genuinely and loveliest people and couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful throughout the planning and the day. The venue itself is stunning and the most magical and rural setting. The rustic, contemporary décor throughout fit our relaxed vibe on our wedding day and the recently revamped outdoor space is absolutely beautiful and ideal for guests to chill and enjoy the weather. Thank you so much! Kate & Rich xx

I was lucky enough to have our wedding reception at this perfect venue in Sept 2019. The Harker family were brilliant from day one and made sure we had the best day. The barn is breathtaking and the work they have done is best in class. Cliff and Carolyn were so helpful with recommendations and advice. I would highly recommend, thanks for all your help and making our day unforgettable!!
Response from Eden Wedding Barn

Fantastic Venue & Lovely Hosts
My husband & I due to unforeseen circumstances had only 8 weeks to plan our wedding. Having visited Eden Barn and meeting Cliff & Carolyn we knew Eden Barn was the right venue for us. They were so kind and accommodating throughout the speedy process and were fantastic on the big day making sure everything matched our perfect day. The venue itself is beautiful, with just a few personal touches required to make it yours. Eden Barn are partnered with Southcott Catering who complement the venue, great food served and impeccable service. Happy memories for a lifetime.

Perfect venue!
From the moment we stepped foot in the beautiful Eden Barn we knew it was the venue for us. We first booked back in Feb 2017, and since then it has changed dramatically, but all for the better. The barn has been renovated to such a high standard and the attention to detail is incredible, all in keeping with its rustic charm. The views over Eden Valley are spectacular and look fabulous on the photo’s. We also cannot fault Cliff & Carolyn, they are so kind and friendly and always did their best to accommodate any needs we had. They were on hand throughout the day, ensuring our day went smoothly and to plan.. which it did. We can’t thank them enough! We had the most wonderful day in the most perfect venue.

The best venue
I’m sure every couple believes their wedding venue is perfect, but Eden Barn truly is magical. The venue is stunning, and there has clearly been so much thought into the decoration. The outside area is also fabulous, with plenty of room for games and amazing photos with various backdrops such as the countryside or old shed buildings. But what truly sets this place apart is the warmth and help from the owners - Cliff and Carolyn - they are so kind and go above an beyond to make your wedding magical. Thank you again!

Superb venue with fantastic hosts
The barn is set in a fantastic location (lots of greenery for photographs too) and proved to be the perfect location for our wedding, receiving widespread compliments from our guests.
In all our dealing with Eden Barn, we were both incredibly impressed with their approach and helpfulness, which made us confident at every point that we'd made the right decision for our wedding venue, and so it proved.
We now have fantastic memories of our wedding and an important factor in this was the friendliness and helpfulness of Eden Barn. Thanks to Carolyn and Cliff for everything you done for us.

The Perfect Day
There aren't adequate words to express our thanks to Carolyn & Cliff for making our Perfect Day so magical. The venue itself is superb but that alone does not make a wedding; from our first meeting until the day after the wedding their calming and unobtrusive guidance has made the whole process a joy. Their wealth of knowledge of local vendors was invaluable and all their recommendations have exceeded our expectation. As a local couple we very much look forward to meeting up with you again (the coop car park or elsewhere!)

We were just lucky enough to hold our wedding at Eden Barn and our day was absolutely perfect! Eden Barn was the first, and only, venue we visited as we knew it was 'The One' after looking round and meeting the wonderful Cliff and Carolyn. They went above and beyond every step of the way to make sure we had the day we had always dreamed of. Nothing was too much to ask! The venue itself is perfect - the ceremony barn, reception barn, outdoor areas and stunning views were commented on by all of our guests for how incredible they are. We have memories to last a lifetime and are so grateful to Eden Barn for giving us such a special day.

We chose Eden Barn for our Wedding Day and so will you as soon as you arrive!! The time and effort Cliff, Carolyn and family have spent getting this bespoke venue perfect is unbelievable.After driving along the beautifully scenic roads through the Cumbrian countryside (wide enough to fit a double decker bus through!) and turning into the long sweeping driveway, with decorative wooden planters and gravel driveway, you are instantly blown away.The barn is just stunning. Our guests arrived into the rustic reception area attached to the barn, with an indoor and outdoor seating area - just perfect for the ever-changing weather. Everything about the reception area is beautifully presented, and there is an immaculate attention to detail. The bar prices are very reasonable and the staff couldn't be more helpful and lovely.We chose to get married in the indoor barn area, which is a traditional exposed brick structure, however there is an outdoor area where you could also choose to get married. The indoor barn is just stunning, there is a net of string fairy lights as a backdrop to your ceremony, and again as with the rest of this venue, the attention to detail makes this the perfect place for a wedding! (However if you were to chose the outside area, the country views are beautiful!) For the wedding breakfast, we used their long trestle tables instead of the traditional round ones, which are handmade, and dressed them to our own taste. Because the venue is THAT beautiful, the decoration doesn't need to be over the top or extravagant, and you can bring your own decorations with you to really add that personal touch. Cliff and Carolyn are also on hand to help during the day, and honestly could not be better hosts. From the minute you book into even just view the venue, they do everything they can to help with any plans/preparation for the day and we found their help invaluable.We absolutely LOVED our special day here and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you so much!
