Information For The Cart Shed

The Cart Shed is an unspoilt and authentic country barn offering you the opportunity to turn your dream wedding day into a reality.

The Cart Shed is blank canvas venue available over the summer months from May until the end of October.

Here at Park Farm we realise the importance of having a blank canvas in order to create your own bespoke memorable event and as such we have created ‘The Cart Shed’ a totally unspoilt and authentic rustic barn offering you the opportunity to turn your ‘perfect day’ into a reality.

From wedding receptions to family parties, we can tailor your day to suit and can offer inspiration, guidance and expertise along with a list of local suppliers who will all be happy to help you with your big day.

The Cart Shed is a stunning authentic rustic barn and is a wonderfully romantic space ideal for weddings. With the addition of our spacious 9m x 8m frame tent, we have the capacity to seat 120 guests comfortably. Panoramic views of the historic, rolling countryside, wonderful rustic timbers wearing fairy lights, a glowing fire pit, floating candles on the pond all add to the atmosphere of this truly unique space.

For quieter moments, when you need a little peace and quiet we also have the Lambing Shed which is a relaxed and informal space for guests to retire to when perhaps the weather isn’t on your side for outdoor activities. The space is also ideal for a drinks reception or even a blessing should you want to keep everything under one roof.

We would love to have the opportunity to show you round and share our enthusiasm for a great addition to Park Farm.

Perfect setting for our special day
It took us nearly 15 years to take the plunge and get married, and on the 16th September 2017, Park Farm provided the perfect setting for our special day. So many of our guest commented on how fabulous the venue was, and how lucky we were to find somewhere that was so completely 'us'.
Response from The Cart Shed
Thank you Kate and Ryan and must say your photos all look fab!

Wonderful Day
Thank you so much Jill and Tim. Park Farm is a beautiful wedding venue and we had such a wonderful day. It wouldn’t have been the same without such a great place to host it and your advice and tips whilst planning were invaluable.
The shepherds hut and b&b rooms were all perfect and breakfast was appreciated by everyone on Sunday morning!

A beautiful venue
What a hidden gem! We found this completely by chance and fell in love. Jill and Tim were fabulous - giving us recommendations, ideas and support whenever we needed. We had the use of the whole farm and were able to decorate and lay it out exactly as we wanted. The whole day went perfectly, from breakfast for the bridal party, to games in the paddock, to the fire pit after the speeches and finally champage breakfast for the newlyweds! A beautiful venue!
Response from The Cart Shed
You were both a pleasure to work with, thank you both for the lovely review

Lifetime of memories
We chose park farm for our wedding for the views and the fact that you had the option of putting your own stamp on the wedding so it felt completely personal to you as a couple and that is exactly what we got! Jill and Tim were very helpful and thought of the things that I hadn’t! All of our guests loved the venue and some even to say it was the best wedding they had ever been to! We thoroughly enjoyed all it had to offer including the accommodation and breakfast. It is full of rustic charm which is the style we wanted, despite the wind a rain it was perfect in every way and made for some different and funny photo opportunities! Thank you Jill and Tim for a lifetime of memories, Becky and Phil Moore 06/10/18 xx

Wish we could do it all again
The moment we arrived on Park Farm we knew it was the one! We only viewed three venues, but Park Farm had such a special feeling. There is so much character in the buildings, but it's essentially a blank canvas to decorate as you wish (Jill has a comprehensive prop list to help). You can use the Lambing Shed, Cart Shed and even the paddock if the weather holds. Jill is really easy to get hold of, we must have visited 3 or 4 times in the run up.
We used Taste to do our catering and bar, as recommended by Jill, and the day ran seamlessly. The setting makes for some beautiful photos. The fire pit was a popular place to chill and catch up or to take a rest from the high energy Ceilidh dancing!
We opted for a midweek wedding which allowed us to plan in 6 months.
Wish we could do it all again.
Thanks so much!

Absolutely Perfect
If you are planning to get married, look no further. This venue is absolutely perfect, the views of the countryside, the B&B accommodation, Jill and Tim's relaxed nature, the use of Sir James's church and the flexibility to put your own stamp on your day. We will look back fondly on our weekend for the rest of our lives. Thank you Jill and Tim

Best day of our lives!
We chose Park Farm for its seclusion, amazing views and the fact that we felt we could put our own stamp on it- it turned out to be everything we expected!

Living in Tokyo we were a little worried about organising everything from afar but Jill was able to recommend some great suppliers (Taste Events for catering and Jeannie for the flowers) who were very proactive and organized which made our lives a lot easier! Jill and Tim were super supportive, very responsive to emails and always available to answer questions and give us advice.

The day itself was perfect. The caterers were already set up, Jeannie was on hand to apply the finishing touches to an stunning floral display and Jill and Tim were available for any support if needed. The venue was incredible- the rolling meadows and sheep, the fire pit, the vintage props, the tractor...it all came together beautifully and this was also beautifully captured by our photographer.

All in all a big thank you in particular to Jill and Tim, Jeannie (flowers), Andy and Katherine (Taste Events) and Gillian (vicar) for making the best day of our lives so perfect and unforgettable!

Fabulous Wedding Weekend
Park Farm is a wonderful wedding venue that we would recommend to anyone, especially those who love the rustic, countryside feel. From the moment we saw it, we knew it was for us - the drive up from the main road to the farm, through beautiful fields with sheep and cows, already had us sold! The barns have a beautiful, rustic character and the outdoor scenery is simply stunning. The two barns, paddock and courtyard area (with fire pit - so cosy in the evening!) provide a diverse space for all to enjoy themselves.

Jill was incredibly helpful during the planning process: she responded to questions quickly, was flexible around our plans (including having a small event on Friday, in addition to the main event on Saturday) and provided valuable advice on caterers (Taste Events) and a florist (Jeannie Williamson). Jill and Tim did a fantastic job on the weekend of the wedding, and everything ran perfectly. The rooms and breakfast were also great!

Jeannie did an incredible job with the flowers and we can't thank her and her team enough for making our floral ideas a reality (especially the ceremony arch!)! Andy and Katherine (Taste) were also fantastic from start to finish. It was so reassuring to have them recommended by Jill, knowing that both knew the venue well and that they would work with Jill and Tim seamlessly to make everything as planned.

Thank you for facilitating such a fabulous wedding weekend. We will treasure the memories forever!

Ira & Joe

Hi, my name is Jill and together with my husband Tim we started Park Farm Weddings in 2017. We are very fortunate to live at Park Farm and wanted to share it's unique charm and location with others, so we set about creating The Cart Shed from a disused barn on the farm. We have taken a great deal of pleasure from the wonderful compliments we receive and have enjoyed hosting all of our many varied weddings. I am your point of contact from your initial enquiry through to the morning after your wedding and will help guide you through the many possible pitfalls of wedding planning!
