Weddings and Events

Bake Barn

Bake Barn is ideal for weddings and events. A beautifully restored shooting lodge, it is licensed inside and out for wedding ceremonies and offers the perfect backdrop for your wedding reception.  With no neighbours, you have complete privacy to party.

We offer you exclusive use on a dry hire basis.  The barn can seat up to 100 guests for dinner and can accommodate up to 150 for an informal event, corporate meeting, product launch or drinks party with additional space on request.

We cannot thank Vicky and everyone at the Fonthill Estate enough for all their help in the lead up to our wedding. They were hugely generous with their time and made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. Bake Barn is just the perfect venue, so accessible, the most beautiful surroundings and the facilities are second to none! It is a very special place and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding or party venue. Thank you! ”  Issy & Hugh August 2021
