Exclusive Use, DIY Weddings in a Beautiful Devon Barn, all packages include three day hire, on the day coordination, 3 nights accommodation and support with planning

Having held our family weddings here at the Great Barn, we believe that your wedding day should be bespoke and meaningful to you. We decided that we wanted to share the flexibility that we had planning our own weddings with others, to give to you the same opportunity to have the wonderfully personal and unique weddings that we did.

At the Ashridge Great Barn we give you complete flexibility; your caterer, your florist, it's all up to you. It is your day after all! The team have lists of suppliers of all things wedding related if you'd like some support. We're here to help, have a browse of the Wedding Planning Page for some tips.

Your wedding shouldn't be stressed, rushed or shared. The Great Barn at Ashridge only hosts a few exclusive weddings a year, the venue is yours for a full three day period. Take a full day to prepare, have a rehearsal dinner, spend a full day packing up or host a send off brunch, the choice is yours. The entirety of your special day is devoted to making your wedding dreams a reality.

As well as three areas licensed for civil ceremonies, including a pavilion in the Magic Circle garden room the Ashridge Great Barn boasts a lovely wood dance floor, a fire pit and a 'snug' quiet area. The Barn itself is an airy building with an historical grandeur which retains a feeling of warmth and intimacy. The Barn looks just as stunning decorated with fairy lights and candles as it does dressed up with vintage bunting and rustic bouquets, allowing you to dress it up however you desire.

With space for up to 140 seated guests, a maximum of 200, and a cut off time of 1am, the Great Barn is a venue to remember and a beautiful space in which to make memories.?
