Hayhouse Farm Weddings

In Picturesque North Dorset


A TRULY stunning setting in Dorset for a beautiful wedding barn ceremony or outdoor celebration in relaxed rural surroundings with far-reaching views. Situated on a family farm on the Dorset/Somerset/Wiltshire border, two miles from Gillingham, the site offers the opportunity to create your perfect dream wedding. This idyllic site, among 25-acres of centuries old organic pasture, is totally private and quiet with no visible buildings or overhead wires. 

Our traditional barn is the perfect setting for civil ceremonies. Humanist ceremonies can take place in our picturesque woodland under a natural canopy of leaves. Car parking is available in an adjacent field, as is camping. Situated off a quiet lane only three miles from the A303, we are also happy to recommend the best local suppliers or services to help create your unforgettable event.

About Us

HAYHOUSE FARM is a family run farm with Mike alternating his day-job as a vet with his weekend job as a beef and sheep farmer in Langham near Gillingham, in one of the most picturesque areas of North Dorset. He is helped by his wife, Annabel and daughters Philippa, Daisy and son Toby. When we held a 21st Birthday party for Philippa, in the summer of 2014, so many of our guests commented on how lucky we were to have such a lovely spot for a party, it gave us the idea to open up the site for others to hold their own celebrations.

We held our first wedding celebrations in 2016 in our own traditional canvas marquee and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed trying to turn everyone’s ideas and dreams into reality.


Exclusive hire of marquee site from 0930 on Friday to give you ample time to decorate the barn, marquee and surrounding areas until Sunday 1500. Our traditional marquee (60 feet by 40 feet) seats up to 160 people and includes flooring, round and rectangle wooden trestle tables and you are welcome to add our fire pits outside with surrounding hay bales.
A storage stable with vintage accessories, tea, coffee, fridge, freezer, 16Amp & 64 Amp power connections, plus a 240v switchboard and two mains water pipes, which are available throughout the weekend.
