Information For Pennard Hill Farm

Pennard Hill Farm is a working farm situated in the stunning Somerset countryside. It is a family farm run by father and daughter team, David and Pippa who have lived at the farm for ten years.

We offer luxury glamping to 200 guests for Glastonbury Festival and a couple of years ago we decided to open our doors for weddings. As the farm is very much our home, we don't want to be a big commercial venue and only accept a maximum of six weddings a year so each wedding is incredibly special and unique to us.

Ideally situated in the rolling hills of the peaceful Somerset countryside with breath taking views over the Mendips, Pennard Hill Farm provides a magical setting and a unique place to celebrate your special day.

Pennard Hill Farm offers a blank canvas allowing you to create your dream wedding in a stunning setting. We offer the venue for the whole weekend to give you plenty of time to make your wedding day your own. The farm is very much our home and we limit our weddings to just six a year so each wedding is incredibly special.

We have a beautiful wooden pagoda tucked away in the corner of one of our fields which is licensed for wedding ceremonies so your entire day can take place in one location, there is no need for your guests to drive from place to place. If you prefer a church wedding, the villages of East Pennard and Pilton are just a few miles away or if you are after a humanist ceremony there are endless gorgeous backdrops on the farm.

If you are after a festival wedding, you’ve come to the right place. We are just a stones throw from Glastonbury and our farm offers the most brilliant view over the Festival site and across to the Pyramid Stage. You might even be able to get some photos taken in front of the Pyramid Stage on your special day.

At Pennard Hill Farm, we can promise, you won’t be short of space and there are plenty of fields for car parking or games such as cricket or croquet.

We have three unique holiday cottages all decorated in their own individual style, providing you the opportunity to have your special friends and family close by throughout the weekend.

The Haybarn, a Victorian style barn conversion, sleeps two people and is positioned across the courtyard from the main farmhouse. The cottage makes a lovely romantic hideaway and with it’s own indoor pool, can you think of anywhere better to spend your wedding night?

The Lamb which also sleeps two, has a large flagstone floor and a gorgeous open fire place. It offers far reaching views across the Somerset countryside. The woodfired hot tub is the perfect place to relax after a busy day of wedding planning!

The Fleece, our largest cottage, is incredibly spacious and can sleep up to eight people. Downstairs there is a large open plan kitchen living area with an AGA, large table and plenty of storage space. There is a lovely sunroom which really traps the warmth of the sun and a large sitting room which is the perfect place for bridesmaids to get ready.

There is one king sized bedroom downstairs and three additional bedrooms upstairs. One of these is a twin. There is also another king and a super king which can be made up as a twin if preferred.

Finally, our safari tent offers six of your guests the chance to glamp in its most glamourous form. With a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, shower, sitting area and woodburning stove, as well as incredible views, what’s not to like!

If you are looking for extra accommodation, we have 14 of our own yurts which can sleep up to four people in each and come fully equipped with proper beds, mattresses, fresh white sheets and fluffy towels.

We would love to help you plan your big day and if you need any advice or a suggested list of suppliers, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We offer on the day wedding coordination from just £300.

"It's just so beautiful'
"After making our many of our most treasured memories at the festival over the years, Pennard Hill Farm was the obvious choice for our wedding. We wanted to share our love of the area with our nearest and dearest - and whilst there's little-to-no chance of our elderly relatives making it to the Pyramid stage any time soon, we couldn't wait to make memories with them overlooking it.

It was exciting that the space was a blank canvas, enabling us to create our own vision carved out from what we love, and what our friends and family would love. Pippa was very relaxed and allowed us the freedom to be as creative as we wanted.

It was also important to us that the ceremony and the reception were in the same location, as guests were travelling from far and wide. Everybody could have an uninterrupted fabulous time from pre-ceremony drinks to the silent disco finish!

Our families stayed in the cottages, close friends were spread across yurts in an adjoining field and the safari tent, and they were all thrilled that they could make a weekend break out of our wedding in such beautiful surroundings.

Logistics such as showers and toilets with external suppliers were easy to arrange as the site is 'ready to go' from its festival setup experience.

The ceremony area was neatly tucked away by the 'bridal cottage' which made getting ready on the morning extra special and (genuinely!) relaxing. Again we made this our own with props and finishing touches.

Everyone from the caterers to the DJ (another Glasto regular) couldn't believe how perfect the site was. One of the biggest compliments for PHF was the recurring feedback "it almost doesn't even matter that it overlooks the festival site, it's just so beautiful!". If you're into ley lines and late nights, the farm is perfect. We truly couldn't have picked a better place to start married life!"

I couldn’t recommend the site enough
We decided to have our wedding at Pennard Hill Farm and I’m so glad we did. Every single one of our guests were wowed by the view and the amazing countryside. Pippa was brilliant, so responsive and so flexible. She gave us tips on local suppliers but allowed us to have exactly what we wanted. Our family stayed in the cottages at the farm and we were blown away by them and entertained for three days by the swimming pool and the various rooms/gardens to sit in. Pippa even leant us silent disco headsets which our guests enjoyed after the band finished. I couldn’t recommend the site enough

absolutely incredible weekend
We had an absolutely incredible weekend holding our wedding at Pennard Hill Farm. We cannot recommend it more highly as a wedding venue. It was fantastic to be able to get married on site and there was plenty of space for us to create our dream wedding. Pippa was fantastic and always on hand to help with anything if we needed it.
