FARM WEDDING BARNS
Dodford Manor Barns are a collection of charming rustic agricultural buildings and barns that have been carefully and painstakingly restored.
The 1680s Threshing Barn was used for separately wheat from chaff and then storing the grain within the same barn. This beautiful ironstone barn, named the Mortain Barn (see history) is now the perfect farm wedding venue setting for Civil Ceremonies.
The 1790s Dairy was used to gather and milk the cattle with by hand until the late 1970s and this now forms the Bar, Chill Out area and Entrance way for the Oak Barn.
Historians believe the Old Four Bay Cart Shed was built at the same style due to the style of Ironstone rowing and clay mortar used. Now converted to luxurious loos with the odd sprig of straw still surviving!
The Oak Barn adjoins the Dairy and Cart Shed replaced an existing modern Agri-barn and is a stunning glass walled modern build traditional oak framed barn. The barns form two separate courtyards to create the outdoor farm wedding venue spaces for guests to congregate before your civil ceremony in the farm barn civil ceremony and for the drinks reception outside afterwards.
