Have a look around the venue
Our wedding venue has been designed to offer comfortable entertaining for up to 150 people in elegantly simple surroundings. Working with utilitarian 1950’s farm buildings (erected by my grandfather!) we have created a truly unique venue that sympathetically marries concrete, wood and steel with the glorious setting.
We hope the buildings and décor, unexpected from the outside, will surprise and delight you.
What to expect
- The Foundry - this has been redesigned to host indoor ceremonies in the afternoon and then transform into a night club for the evening.
- The Chitting Shed - linking to the Foundry, this rebuilt zinc and cedar shingle shed is the perfect area for drinks receptions. Huge glass double doors open out onto the west facing terrace and gardens.
- The Grainstore - artfully reclaimed as a dining area with capacity to seat up to 150. It incorporates a large fireplace and mezzanine gallery to make full use of the 35 foot high ceilings.
- Ceremony Loggia and Wedding Garden - situated in front of the terrace. From May to September you may choose an outdoor civil ceremony in the Loggia with guests seated in a connecting marquee, protected from the vagaries of the British weather.

Dove Barn, our sister venue, just 30 minutes from Houchins.
Wedding Show, Sunday 2nd April, 11am-3pm. Free entry and goodie bag for all brides.
Dove Barn is where our wedding business started in 2002. A charming, rustic barn just behind the historic Castlings Hall near Sudbury in South Suffolk needed restoring and we took on that challenge. Since 2002 we have held over 300 weddings at Dove Barn and it has variously been described as 'quirky', 'laid-back', 'a hidden gem of a venue' and 'full of rural calm'.
