We have a maximum capacity of 100 guests for both day & night. This includes any additional evening guests you may wish to invite. This is non-negotiable & cannot be increased.
After you have seen the barn we can provisionally book your chosen date for a maximum of 7 days (or less if another party is also interested in that date). Within this period we will issue a booking form & T&Cs. These will need to be returned by the 7th day if you wish to confirm. A 25% deposit invoice will then be issued of the total hire fee - The remaining balance will be sent to you 10 weeks before your wedding date.
Once your date is booked we provide you with a full list of local suppliers. We have selected the ones that match the barn's chic style & uniqueness. We do not charge any of our suppliers’ commission which means they are on there because we genuinely believe them to be the best. We are very flexible though & you are welcome to source & use your own ones (excluding caterer).
There is plenty of accommodation in the local area for 100 guests. We can recommend anything from a 5 star boutique B&B to a campsite a few minutes drive away. Or if you prefer there is a lovely, independent country hotel 15 minutes' drive away that can accommodate 100 guests (The Hollies, Martock). This means making your life easier when organising transport to & from the venue & accommodating all your guests in one place. Perfect for everyone catching up over breakfast the following morning.
Your civil ceremony will be held upstairs in the hayloft. It is a stunning room & this also means there is no furniture movement during your day or making you stand outside for hours whilst tables are laid.
You can have access from 10am on the day of your wedding. If you wish to come & dress the venue yourselves you are more than welcome. Alternatively the venue can be completely dressed for you - meaning you can sit back and enjoy getting ready on the morning of your wedding.
Entertainment & the bar finishes at 11pm & the barn closes at 1130pm. We cannot extend this license.
Muchelney is a beautiful village with lots of thatched roofs & fields full of livestock - with this in mind; fireworks & Chinese lanterns are not permitted. We also ask that sparklers are not used - the left over sticks can be pretty nasty for our resident little poochies - Woofy & Wally.
Due to the barn's historical nature we have limited disabled access. Please contact us for further information.
