At this registered venue you can marry in the upper quarter of the barn with guests seated amongst the original oak wooden beams, adorned with flowers, fairy lights or candles to create a magical and intimate experience. The dining area can be made as rustic or refined as you like while you feast with family and friends on locally sourced, quality food. We provide long rustic and stylish trestle style tables and the option of white covered banquet chairs or chiavari chairs. Other options are available.
We provide the option of having your honeymoon suit in the same room that you early said your vows. We will magically transform the room into a cosy, romantic honeymoon suite in time for the evening. .

It has a feeling of space and grandeur, yet manages to maintain a homely and welcoming ambience.

The house and gardens are south facing with uninterrupted views that stretch across the fields over the Clun Valley and overlook Clun Castle ruins. The extensive gardens will impress your guests and are yours to welcome your guests with drinks and canapés on the lawn.

If you have children in your party, they will love the endless options of things to do from playing on the pool or table tennis table to enjoying the garden games and children's play area.

We had our little wedding at the Grain Loft in November 2021 and all guests stayed in Llanhedric House. It could not have been more perfect. The whole venue is so well kept and a lot of thought has gone in to even the small details. Would highly recommend. The views are also stunning. Thank you so much Elaine. Love Nikki and Ed xxx

Amazing Venue
Wow!!! Huge thanks to Elaine & Mark. We had our wedding at The Grain Loft last weekend and it was amazing. The venue is in the most beautiful setting with incredible views across the Clun Valley. The grounds are well maintained and looked fantastic in the height of summer. Elaine and Mark listened carefully to our requirements and made sure everything was in place on the day. In the run up, they liaised with the caterers and others involved and made sure they were available to take deliveries and to help out. We made use of the whole venue, with friends staying in Llanhedric House and we had the honeymoon suite in The Grain Loft. Everyone we have spoken to after the wedding has commented on what a beautiful setting it is so thanks Elaine & Mark once again for helping to make our day so special. We would totally recommend The Grain Loft to anyone getting married. I’ve just added a few pictures but they don’t do it justice, plenty more to come!!!

Truly beautiful venue
The Grain Loft is such a beautiful venue in a truly lovely location in the countryside. Elaine and Mark have been so supportive and helpful with changing the numbers and rearranging the date of our wedding throughout this crazy year. We are so grateful for how flexible they have been during this difficult time.
There are so many positives about this lovely venue, from the overnight rooms in the pretty cottage next door to the amazingly lovely touch of turning the ceremony room into a bridal suite for the night of the wedding! The landscape will make for amazing wedding photos and the facilities (plus the help of Elaine and Mark) will make for an amazing wedding day!

I was fortunate enough to spend my childhood at Llanhedric Farm. Having moved away to university and work, myself and my husband made the decision to move back to the area with our two small children. In 2011 we changed the use of Llanhedric House into a large group holiday let as we knew it would make a great house for families and friends to get together. In 2016 we decided to extend what we could offer to allow our guests to marry in this beautiful setting. Together with my husband Mark and dad Hugh we set about converting the disused farm barn that sat next to Llanhedric House into a beautiful multi functional venue that could cater for wedding and retreats. We were keen to retain its history and were sure to keep the original beams and stone walls and make use of original farm features that would have been used over the years, such as the butter churn and wagon wheels. We're delighted that this stunning old building has been transformed into a warm and inviting venue filled with history and charm. We only hold a small number of weddings so that we can fully focus on the couples that we host and ensure we can be as flexible as possible to make the day unique and special for you.
