(In summary and subject to amendment)

Timings - For a Saturday wedding you are welcome to access the barn for preparations from midday on Thursday and we request the barn and garden is cleared by 4pm on Sunday with the exception of hire items which should be removed by 10am on Monday morning. On the wedding day itself ceremonies should start after midday and the venue should be vacated by midnight.

Bar Policy - For licencing reasons we request you use our nominated bar provider. Our bar provider organises licensing and as a minimum should be used from 7pm, (or is available earlier by request). You are welcome to provide welcome drinks and wine with the meal up to 6pm with no corkage fees. There shall be  a minimum spend outlined in our terms and conditions.

Electrical loading - The electrical supply is adequate for typical usage of the barn for a wedding. However if you are going to require a significant additional loading then we recommend you seek advice from a qualified electrician in order to ascertain whether there is adequate loading for your needs or whether you need to hire a generator.


Children and Animals - Given the venue is not staffed it is the wedding organisers and their guests responsibility to ensure children are supervised. No animals are permitted except guide dogs.

Heating - Please note there is no heating in the barn although this is not normally deemed necessary in the summer months. Heaters can be hired for weddings taking place in the cooler months and are strongly advised for winter weddings to ensure everyone’s comfort.

Music Policy - All music should cease by 11.45pm at the latest and should adhere to sound limits imposed by license conditions. We have the right to request music is turned down at our discretion.

Fireworks and Chinese Lanterns - Due to livestock and neighbours we request no fireworks, lanterns or sparklers are used.


Taxis - It is essential for guests to pre-book taxis etc and it is advisable to do this prior to the wedding day. Uber is not available here! We request those organising weddings advise their guests of this when invitations or instructions are issued.


Force Majeur - If due to unforeseen circumstances the venue has to be closed for any reason, New Barn Farm will use its best endeavors to locate a similar alternative venue. Should this not be possible, or if preferred by the hirer, any deposit or fee paid will be refunded in full.

Booking policy - To book the venue once a date is agreed, we require our terms of business to be signed and a non-returnable deposit of 30% of the tariff to be paid. The balance is to be paid 4 weeks before the wedding date. A booking is deemed to be provisional until the required deposit is received. New Barn Farm will accept a provisional booking, but should another client subsequently wish to book and confirm the same venue on the same date before the deposit is received no guarantee about availability can be made. The payment of the deposit is deemed as acceptance of the conditions.


Damage Deposit - An additional damage deposit of £300 should be paid one month before the final installment and shall be returned after the wedding net of any deductions for breakages, additional cleaning or removal of rubbish. Any damage to the venue, its contents or its grounds that result from misuse or negligence by the client or guests will be deemed the responsibility of the client/s and will be charged for.

Cancellation of Booking - In the event of a confirmed booking being cancelled it can make re-booking the venue difficult. If cancelled within 9 months of the date booked the full deposit will be retained by New Barn Farm. If the cancellation is made more than 10 months from the booking then only 25% of the overall hire charge will be retained from the deposit.

*Rates are subject to change and are only confirmed once a booking is made.
