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.”

  • “Gorgeous setting, ancient feeling barn with lovely lighting and bar area. Plenty of space to dance. We were there in November and with a barn dance to keep us warm it was brilliant. May have been chilly if we were just there for a sit down dinner. Loos were slightly "rustic" – portaloos with not much lighting – but I have a feeling this was a temporary arrangement while another area was being refurbished. Had overwhelmingly positive feedback from guests about how wonderful the venue was and requests for this to become an annual event!”
