To tell you a little history on Eden Barn, our daughter asked us if she could hold her Wedding in the barn in June 2015. We lovingly restored it for our family wedding and now welcome yours.


How many guests can I have?

We seat up to 144 guests for the wedding breakfast and up to 200 guests in the evening. Licensed, civil indoor ceremonies take place in our main stone barn, which is over 200 years old, underneath our waterfall of lights. Outdoor licensed civil ceremonies are opposite the barn, surrounded by the Pennine Hills and overlooking the meadow. Alternatively we can recommend local celebrants. The beautiful St Theobald's Church is also 1/2 a mile away, set next to the River Eden.

How is Catering provided?

Our catering parnters, Southcott Events Catering, will look after all of your foodie needs. A husband and wife team, Luke and the chefs will prepare perfect seasonal dishes of your choice, whilst Jen and the front of team take care of your guests and co-ordination on the day.

Who are we?

We are a family run venue and each wedding we host is completely unique, with the venue being exclusively yours. We live and breath all things weddings and are on hand to support you from the initial viewing through to the big day. We set up your wedding for you, co-ordinate on the day, and then de-set it, leaving you to relax and enjoy the celebrations.

Where do I stay

We are opening the 'Eden Inn' this Spring, which is located in the next village to the barn. Our 300 year old coaching inn will sleep up to 34 guests, with 3 suites available. Perfect for those pre wedding meet ups and post wedding brunches. A private dining room is available upon request. Situated in the beautiful Eden valley, we also have a recommended accommodation list, which includes further places within the village and surrounding market towns.


We are on a journey to become as fully sustainable as possible. We have constructed the barn with reclaimed, local materials and estate timbers. Our catering partners have engineered a menu that provides seasonal, local produce to reduce food mileage. We both use staff from the surrounding villages to reduce the carbon footprint, provide opportunity and sustain local communities. As land owners, we are responsible for offsetting, measuring carbon sequestration, and reducing harm created. Re wilding of areas of the 100 acre estate has begun, one area is the Meadow, planted with wild flower seeds and now available for you to enjoy in a quiet moment of your day.

Available dates

We have limited available dates for 2024. Please enquire for any cancellations. Our 2025 and 2026 diary is open. Book a viewing with one of the family and we will show you around, help you with the planning process, set up and co-ordinate your day. We even de-set it and have it ready for a member of your wedding party to collect the next day, making as easy, breasy as possible for you.


Eden Barn was the first venue we visited and as soon as we left we knew we wanted to get married there. All other viewings arranged were cancelled! The Harker family are so welcoming and we had complete faith in them that they would help to make our day as special as they possibly could. Nothing was too much for them and they were always happy to offer advice but let us do our own thing as well. We also want to mention Southcott, their caterers - outstanding as well, food and service is amazing and again, nothing was too much trouble. I could not recommend this venue enough, it's a hidden gem-get booking before everyone else catches on! Rosie and Jonny Pearce

Eden Barn is magical. From the minute we first visited the venue, we fell in love with it. It looks special on the pictures but nothing compares to seeing it in real life, it is stunning. And what makes it even more special are Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea and Julia. They really make you feel like you are the only wedding happening and that you are part of their family. Their knowledge and experience meant that everything during the day flowed.

The Harker family are the most incredible team, nothing was too much to ask, they were on hand to ensure everything ran smoothly, and their support throughout the planning process and on the wedding day was amazing. They truly are some of the best people you will ever meet and we will feel forever blessed to have met them and to have been lucky enough to have had our wedding at Eden Barn.

We had the pleasure of having our wedding at Eden Barn in August this year and it genuinely could not have been better. Carolyn, Cliff, Andrea, Julia and Charlene were fantastic in the build up to our big day, and provided some much needed support to ensure our day was as perfect as it possibly could be. The venue is beautiful and the whole day ran so smoothly and efficiently. We were obviously both quite nervous as you are on your wedding day but the whole team couldn’t have made us feel more relaxed from arriving in the morning to leaving at midnight. Thank you so much for everything and we only wish we could repeat it all again! If you’re thinking about booking this venue for your wedding day, you absolutely should.

Wow, where do I start with Eden Barn wedding venue? First of all, it is thee most incredible venue we've ever seen/visited. Eden Barn was the second venue we viewed, the first one wasn't what we wanted (which we thought it would be) and so we didn't hold out much hope for any future viewings, so we booked 4 more - the first of the 4 being Eden Barn, let's just say as soon as we left I cancelled the other 3 venue viewings. As soon as we got there we knew that's where we would get married. And then we got talking with Cliff and Carolyn - the parents of the family. What a wonderful couple, they told us everything we needed to know, we didn't leave having had more questions, the next day we provisionally booked our November 2023 wedding. For the 2 years of planning, the Harker family were so on the ball with answering our questions, queries, worries and excitement based emails/calls. They made us feel like we were the only wedding they had going on. The day - the day ran more perfect than we could have ever wished for, and I honestly think it was down to these guys. From Carolyn carrying my dress, to Cliff climbing ladders to try and get the boys' football down off the roof! The Harker family , Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea and Julia- who all played different roles to ensure our day was perfect , are the most beautiful family - inside and out that we have ever met. We're truly grateful for everything they did.
