Gorgeous green country wedding venue

We're so excited to welcome Winkworth Farm to our green wedding directory!

Set in 230 acres of organic farmland, this former Cotswold stone threshing barn complex with a capacity for 200 seated guests is a fabulous new wedding venue for couples planning to throw a wedding in the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire countryside. Renovated by local craftsmen, using some ancient building methods combined with the very latest environmentally friendly technology, this lovely new venue is being sympathetically restored with a high-end finish throughout, including the furniture and fittings.

The Barns, reached by a mile long private drive, are surrounded by already well established lawns, herbaceous borders, a Cotswold stone sunken garden and acres of organic meadows with ravishing views and is yours exclusively for your wedding day.

There's a Farmhouse too which can be hired from 1 to 4 nights, with meals prepared by a local chef. The perfect place for you to prepare for the big day with your immediate family.

What's so special about Winkworth Farm is the fact that the Jeremy and Melanie Newman will not compromise on any aspect of the building work, or the way they will run the venue when it opens in June 2010. Although the farm business has diversified from its original beef farming roots, they still believe in supporting and promoting local suppliers and producers. They are employing a local architect, builders and craftsmen to realise their dream venue and they use renewable energy with the latest green technology to reduce the farm's carbon footprint.

Having hosted wedding receptions in the cattle byre with a marquee attached since 2004, the Newman family are old hands at making your day go without a hitch and they are now looking forward to hosting weddings year round in their newly renovated and licensed Cotswold venue.

If you fancy taking a look and talking to Jeremy and Melanie about Winkworth Farm, they will be welcoming visitors for ‘hard hat tours’ of the barn complex from Autumn 2009 and they are already taking wedding bookings starting August 2010 through to 2011.
