Set in the Eden Valley, Long Acre Barn is discretely located on a working farm amongst pastoral countryside with stunning views across ancient woodland and a flower meadow. There’s a rustic, Victorian charm throughout, with a long drive through open fields and the sandstone barn and granary lovingly restored in a natural, pared back way to create an authentic venue. The exterior is welcoming with a large patio and pergola, and the windows and doorways framing the barn are flooded with natural light.
Long Acre Barn has been in the Addison family since 1859, and like many farming businesses, the owners explored several diversification options before deciding to transform the space into a wedding venue. After two years of planning and a further two years in renovation, the barn was completed, with the first weddings successfully taking place. Every part of the décor has been thoughtfully planned, including the oak and larch used for the staircases, bar, pergola and doors and the recycled animal drinking bowls incorporated into the patio walls.
Celebrate in style
With a wedding licence for the whole venue, couples have the flexibility to tie the knot anywhere at Long Acre Barn – from the orchard, lawns or Log Store to the main Barn or Granary. As a venue with lots of break out options, it can easily cater for any wedding. On the left side of the property is The Barn and Granary, which has a large sandstone patio, pergola, and quirky wall. The Barn can accommodate up to 140 guests throughout the day, while the Granary can hold 30.
The Victorian orchard is a very relaxing space, with a meandering hoggin path leading to the walled garden, a patio and a seating area outside the Barn. There’s also a large lawn that overlooks the woodland and wildflower meadows.
Across the lawn is the Log Store, a fun and quirky covered space with a firepit, lights and room for 40 nearest and dearest. It’s perfect for barbecues and hog roasts or creating a festival vibe and comes complete with a glitter ball tied to the corrugated roof with a piece of baler twine.
With acres of space, there’s plenty of room for camping, and there are family cottages nearby. For couples, there’s a traditional farmhouse cottage with a stunning dual-aspect master bedroom complete with a copper bath, which is included the night before and evening of the wedding.
