Welcome to Almonry Barn! You’ve stumbled upon an 800-year-old gem, perfectly poised in the Somerset countryside. Boasting architectural texture, romantic lighting and rustic elegance, its historical soul is perfect for the style conscious couple!
The barn is believed to be the oldest to host weddings in England and was once part of a beautiful abbey - the ruins of which still stand opposite. The barn was used by the monks to give 'alms' to passing travellers and pilgrims and as such has been classified as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The same historical league as Stonehenge!
Lovingly restored and run by mother and daughter team Angela and Louise, you’ll see the influence of Louise's background in interior design, event management and event styling throughout the barn. Meanwhile, Angela’s gardening prowess is the creative force behind the flower beds, orchard and garden landscaping.
They work tirelessly to create a blank canvas, steeped in Somerset history, fit for your finishing touches!
In the Threshing Barn, endless character greets guests with original oak doors and remarkable threshing machinery. This is the main reception area for your wedding breakfast, and houses the dance floor area too.
Step off the dance floor, through an original archway into the old stable quarters, to reach our quirky bar. Where horses once quenched their thirst, artisan spirits and the South West’s finest tipples await your revellers.
Let the sunshine in through the Threshing Barns’ original doors and step out onto our pretty walled terrace. Views over the Somerset levels, our apple orchard and a babbling brook create a stunning backdrop for your celebrations!
Upstairs in the Hayloft sits our tranquil ceremony room and a cosy snug for when you need a quiet moment together.
Exclusivity guaranteed: The barn only holds a limited number of weddings each year predominately on Fridays and Saturdays throughout April to October. We also occasionally offer week days by special request.
