Cosy Medieval barn for bespoke family fun

73 acre Lower House Farm sits in the Olchon valley, bordering the river (with our own waterfall!) and in the dramatic foothills of the Black Mountains – making for a really special rural venue. Our fully restored medieval barn seats 108 on long wooden tables and cosy sheep-skin adorned benches - perfect for big banquets. The barn has vaulted ceilings, original oak timbers and (heated) flagstone flooring. It also has a large entrance porch, two loos (one of which is disabled access) and bifold glass doors opening right up onto a private lawned area and orchard. The barn has a sound and multimedia system for those who want to provide their own music, and is also suitable for bands to play during the evening.

Across the farmyard is a huge open field for guests to use as an additional outdoor reception space. It hosts our timber-framed marquee and wood-fired pizza oven, as well as our tipi (seating up to 30) which can also be used as a secondary location. The field leads down to the river and a little beach area, while along a private riverside walkway is our revolving Victorian summerhouse - perfect for escaping for a quiet moment on the big day! This field also houses three composting loos and two hot showers, providing all the facilities that overnight campers might need.

We cater all events at Lower House Farm ourselves, using our fantastic small-scale farm produce which includes grass-fed lamb and beef and free-range pork, all from rare-breed animals. We source other ingredients from a range of local and organic producers. Late-night pizzas from the wood-fired oven are particularly popular option for evening guests.

Beth & Chris 17th June 2016 - Our Wedding
We literally cannot express how grateful we are to you for making our BIG day so........... special, but we are going to try.
We came here for Anna's Birthday last year as we drove down the drive, we looked at each other, grinned at each other and said, let's get married here!!! and that's even before we met you both and tried the wonderful food!
This is such a unique location and you have worked so hard to make a fantastic homemade and relaxing place, were friends and family can meet to celebrate with each other. So many of our friends told us it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. Your enthusiasm has been great, and has made me feel so calm in the lead up to the day! Thank you so so so much for helping this to be the best of our lives,
Lots of love Beth & Chris
P.s. We can't wait to come again.
