Dovedale Barn is not your typical farm barn as it has been converted for weddings and special occasions. You have to see it to believe it (so please go to our photos page) The views from the barn are amazing and the use of the fields are included which is perfect for garden parties. Dovedale Barn has all the facilities you need for an amazing occasion including the wow factor and you create a bespoke wedding or event or workshop to suit you with a little helping hand from us!
All our Holiday Cottages, Events and Weddings support Dovedale Animal Sanctuary..
