Essential information

Access times

Access to the site for your event will run from 9am on the morning before, until 1pm on the day following your wedding.

So for a typical Saturday wedding, you will have access from Friday morning (9am) to Sunday afternoon (1pm).

Extensions may be agreed with staff, subject to availability and additional costs.

Bar and licensing

As of 2015, our good friends at ‘Cocktails in Company’ will be available to run our bars for us. These guys are absolutely wonderful and it is a pleasure working with them. From a standard bar to the full cocktail experience, these guys have it covered! Please contact Lesley Smalling direct at info@cocktailsincompany.com

Camping and glamping

All weddings get exclusive use of the full farm site for 2 nights, so your visitors are free to camp and glamp to their heart’s content.

Campfire

A wedding campfire is heartily encouraged – if not compulsory! Some wood is provided and extra can be bought from us.

Catering

We do not arrange catering. We leave this up to our guests to organise, which will help cut your costs.

We have plenty of friendly, professional and trusted affiliates who we can recommend to you if you want some ideas.

Caterers and catering

Caterers must liaised with to ensure they have sufficient space and power, etc.

We have a small preperation area suitable for caterers with steel tables, sink, large chiller and large gas oven.

Crockery, cutlery and glasses

Unfortunately we don’t provide these for events. However, we will always help when we can and have many great contacts who can supply these extras. We currently do not have chairs available but you can hire these from our friends at Coordination Event Hire.

Decoration

We’ve hosted some amazing themed events including: Midsummer Night’s Dream, Rockabilly, Festival weddings and vintage tea parties.

Whilst we’re situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty we’re also a complete blank canvas for your imagination and are more than happy to help out with ideas and options!

External hire

Hiring of items outside of the YoghurtRooms portfolio must be agreed with the proprietors prior to arrival.

Fireworks and Chinese lanterns

We don’t allow Chinese lanterns as they are a hazard to animals, neighbouring farmers and are generally frowned upon in the rural community.

We do allow fireworks, as long as the team firework leader is responsible and compos mentis.

Please make sure all displays are finished by 11pm.

Heaters and heating

The granary apartment has full central heating.

All the yurts have their own wood burning stoves.

The barn is well insulated and has a huge open fireplace.

We do not have heaters for the marquees.

N.B. All external heater hire should be discussed with a member of staff.

Please note: Gas heaters only are allowed. We DO NOT allow any electric heaters on site.

Marquees

We have 2 x Capri marquee tents (38x28ft), with coconut matting.

One is included in the wedding package price, whilst the other is available to hire on request (at an additional cost of £450.00 inc. matting).

Each marquee has a guideline of up to 70 guests seated, or 90 standing.

They can be erected in our main event area – the hard standing beside the barn or beside the studio room. (It is sometimes possible to erect them in the field areas but this is subject to season and only via prior arrangement.)

Marriage licence

Unfortunately, we do not have a licence at the moment to conduct legal wedding ceremonies at the farm.

This is something we are looking to acquire in the near future.

Minimum duration

Minimum 2 night bookings on the weekends, during which time you will have exclusive use of the entire farm site. We accept overnight bookings midweek or out of our summer season. Access typically runs from 9am Friday to 1pm Sunday. Bank Holidays run over 3 days and are charges accordingly.

Music

Outdoor music is allowed between 1pm and 11pm, whilst the barn’s music curfew is 12am.

All systems are on a timer. We allow a ‘cooling off’ song, but unfortunately that is the maximum.

If you want to continue the party why not consider hiring in a silent disco? Very modern and jolly good fun!

Number of guests

Our maximum capacity is 150 guests.

Under 12’s are not counted, all overs are charged for the weekend.

See wedding packages & prices for different costings.

Office hours

Office hours are between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.

Please note that we are often busy catering to other weddings and events during weekends, so may not be able to answer all calls or respond to emails until the following Monday.

Please contact to arrange a viewing of the farm, we need to make sure a member of the farm crew is available for you. Our yurts are not up between November and April.

Parking

We can accommodate up to 50 cars and parking is free. We do not allow cars in the camping areas or on grass verges.

Please park in the car park or other hard standing and use our wheelbarrows provided to transfer your belongings.

We like to encourage car sharing where possible to limit the impact on the lane and environment.

Pets

Please be aware that we have livestock and we like our animals tremendously, so all over-excited dogs on leads please!

Please note that we have dogs here too, as well as neighbouring dogs that occasionally roam down the lane. The neighbouring dog, Worster is partial to a sausage and has been known to steal them from guests! Be warned.

Sound & Lighting

All sound and light equipment is included in our packages. We don’t allow external speakers to be brought on site without prior agreement.

The sound and light package includes: 2x Alto Elvis 15A speakers, Allan and Heath GL2 mixing desk, 6 x par cans and up to 6 mic stands. Please note that we do not provide the mics.

All additional hire extras are subject to availability. Please check availability when booking and prior to your event.

Storage for food & drink

Dependant on requirements, we have storerooms, extra fridges and freezer space. Ordinarily we can confirm this at the time of booking.

Tidying up

You are responsible for the clear up following your wedding.

It is always a good idea to ask friends and family to assist you throughout your event. And we would appreciate waste being separated for our relevant bins – we’re slight eco-warriors!

Specific service staff (bar, catering, meeting and greeting) can be hired from us and we will allocate a member of staff to look after things before and during your do.

We love our beautiful farm and surroundings so please help us look after it.

Visit the farm

We would love to show you around our farm.

FYI: we generally have exclusively-booked events from Friday morning to Sunday afternoon, so can show you after 3pm on a Sunday or any day mid-week. This only applies for high season.

Please note that we take our yurts down at the end of October and we do not set them up again until the end of March so they will not be available to see during this time.

Just get in touch to book a time that suits.

Working farm

Please note that this is a working farm!

Whilst every attempt will be made to ensure that your wedding is as fantastic as possible throughout, there will be members of staff on-site undertaking duties that are not in association with your event.

Thank you for your understanding.
