The barn can accommodate 150 guests for the wedding breakfast and evening party. From the exposed wooden beams of the barn, the green of the surrounding fields, to the cherry blossom avenue, you are surrounded by stunning backdrops to capture your perfect wedding photographs.

Bowerchalke Barn makes for the perfect space to host a civil ceremony or a rustic hay bale seated ceremony outside. Alternatively, if you are wanting to be married in a church, there are a number of beautiful village churches nearby in Wiltshire and Dorset to choose from.

Exclusive use and plenty of time to prepare

Exclusive use and plenty of time to prepare

We understand that each wedding is unique and encourage you to decorate the barn to your chosen wedding theme. To make sure that you have ample time to prepare all the important details for your day we offer full site access one day prior to the wedding day until 2pm the day following the wedding. We ask that carriages be booked for 11.00pm on the big day.

There is scope to erect a marquee in the field joining the barn, providing additional space if required. There is a designated field for parking and a field that can accommodate camping or other wedding activities.

Our Testimonials

  • “We were fortunate enough to hold our wedding at Bowerchalke Barn on 16th June 2018. We loved the incredible barn from the moment we saw it and are so happy we were able to hold our special day there. The surrounding area is beautiful and the barn is perfect for couples looking for a rustic venue. Tim was so friendly, accommodating and helpful throughout the lead up including a busy couple of days before, as we had a number of different suppliers arriving on site. Thank you so much – the day was just what we hoped for and more!”

    Emily & Steve
  • “We stumbled across Bowerchalke Barn whilst looking for a venue for our wedding reception, and fell in love instantly! It is simply the most stunning venue and Tim and the rest of the team were so helpful and accommodating for start to finish. We had the most amazing day and would highly recommend.”

    Hayley Hall
  • “I was lucky enough to hold my first ever styled shoot at Bowerchalke & it's completely held my heart ever since. The most stunning location to hold a wedding with the most incredible features and views! Nothing was too much trouble for Tim and we were so lucky to have him on hand to help make the day run as smoothly as possible and were equally lucky to then have the shoot featured on Bride & Tonic. If you're looking for a venue full to the brim with character and atmosphere then you need to go check out the barn and I guarantee you'll fall in love with it as much as myself and the other suppliers did. Wishing Tim and his family nothing but all the success they totally deserve for years to come.”

    Laura Clifford
  • “A stunning setting for any special event, made even more spectacular by the delicious food and attention to detail. The whole team are committed to making your celebration the very best it possibly can be. They really care about what they do and it shows.”

    Annie Parnell
  • “The most incredible venue for a wedding or party. Such an historic and characterful building, with a purpose built bar, excellent facilities and generous hosts. Well worth considering for that special day. In fact don’t consider it, just book it!”

    Haydn Oakley
  • “We held a small, intimate and very personal marriage at Bowerchalke Barn this January and it was a day that will live long in our memory. Tim and his team were absolutely incredible, we couldn’t be more thankful for everything they did for us and also at such short notice. It is clear they care so much about their business, putting on the perfect day for their guests and ensuring we had the best time possible.

    Nothing was ever too much hassle, they are friendly, accommodating and know how to put on a wedding, organising everything from seating to food (delicious). As a licences venue it meant we could have it all under one roof which was perfect for us. The Barn itself is something to behold, the lighting, decoration all works beautifully and it backs onto the most beautiful countryside.

    We couldn’t have asked for more. Again another huge thank you to Tim and his team for going above and beyond to create a really special day for us.”
