Dove Barn, our sister venue, just 30 minutes from Houchins. The next Dove Barn Open Day is on 10th March 11am - 3pm.
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'. If you are looking for a unique venue just off the beaten track take a look at our website:
