The Old Barn is one of the most quirky, fun and unique wedding and events venues in the South West. A gorgeous 17th century barn with original oak beams and rustic stone walls, it's a beautiful blank canvas, whatever your dreams for your day.
This family-owned renovated barn venue near Clovelly in North Devon has exciting contrasts. Set in beautiful countryside and within sight of the stunning coast, it's vintage, rustic and perfect for both small and large celebrations. As a flexible DIY venue, there's the freedom to use whichever suppliers you prefer (there's plenty of catering space), or use the in-house bar and staff. And being next to a family-owned theme park means that you have some unique photo opportunities, and access to some totally fun elements that’ll ensure your day is remembered by all for many years to come...
The Old Barn is a flexible DIY wedding and reception venue, and we’re licensed to offer weddings and civil ceremonies too. The barn itself can seat up to 118 people for a wedding breakfast and we can accommodate up to 200 for evening parties. As well as a stunning setting for ceremonies, the adjoining vine-covered conservatory is a unique and flexible space that can be used for extra seating, welcome drinks, a chill out area, photobooth … or whatever you fancy!
And being a DIY venue, at The Old Barn you have the freedom to create your own unique and special day. You’re welcome to style the barn as you choose – vintage, rustic, festival and boho themes look great here.
You’re also free to invite your own suppliers, including caterers, but we can help out on that front too if you like, with ideas for recommended suppliers. We have dedicated kitchen preparation space within the barn and there’s plenty of space outside for more relaxed catering options like a hog roast or fish and chip van. You can bring your own welcome drinks and wine for your sit down meal (we don’t charge corkage) and there are rustic wooden plank tables and white chairs included if you want them. We also provide our own bar and bar staff, with prices comparable to the average Devon pub.
Whatever you want to do, it’s totally up to you, and we’re on hand to offer advice to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Ultimately, we’re pretty flexible, so if you have something you need, or an idea you want to run by us, just ask – we’re here to help make your celebrations memorable.
