Explore the Venue
Nestled in a valley near the Devon/Dorset border, River Cottage HQ is a working farm with a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills and stunning sunsets.
There are a variety of spaces all bursting with charm and character for your wedding party to use throughout the day and River Cottage comprises over 100 acres of beautiful countryside and woodland and guests are welcome to wander the gardens and explore the smallholding at their leisure.
The Threshing Barn
Our refurbished threshing barn is an impressive, versatile space full of rustic charm and can seat up to 70 guests. (The adjoining decking can seat a further 30 guests during the summer months). Use of all furniture, cutlery, crockery, linen and glassware is included in the venue hire as well as jam jars of seasonal wild flowers for the dining tables. For the evening party we can accommodate a band or DJ of your choice and up to 120 for dancing into the small hours.
Our walled kitchen garden offers a picturesque space for an outside ceremony. On arrival or after the ceremony the garden is a gorgeous, relaxed setting for guests to wander amongst the organic veggies while sipping a glass of fizz and listening to live music.
The Decking and Yurt
During the summer months we are able to accommodate a further 30 guests for dining on our decking under a permanent timber framed canvas marquee located just outside the threshing barn. Our yurt can be used for guests to relax and enjoy apertifs, or their coffee and petits fours by the fire.
Our stunning 17th century farmhouse sleeps up to 6 guests and is available to hire the night before or after your Big Day. It can also be used for more intimate ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and drinks receptions.
If you are planning a large celebration for over 100 daytime guests, we can hire in marquees which are situated in one of the idylic fields on the farm. A supplement will apply and is priced by requirement.
