Unique wedding celebration barn venue for 108 with a honeymoon tipi and camping, near Hay on Wye

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Lower House Farm, Longtown, Herefordshire, sleeps 108 in 1 bedrooms.

73 acre Lower House Farm sits in the Olchon valley, bordering the river (with our own waterfall!) and in the dramatic foothills of the Black Mountains.

Our fully restored medieval barn seats 108 on long wooden tables and cosy sheep-skin adorned benches - perfect for big wedding banquets. The barn has vaulted ceilings, original oak timbers and (heated) flagstone flooring. It also has a large entrance porch, two loos (one of which is disabled access) and bifold glass doors opening right up onto a private lawned area and orchard. The barn has a sound and multimedia system for those who want to provide their own music, and is also suitable for bands to play during the evening.

Across the farmyard is a huge open field for wedding guests to use as an additional outdoor reception space. It hosts our timber-framed marquee and wood-fired pizza oven, as well as our tipi (seating up to 30) which can also be used as a honeymoon suite. The field leads down to the river and a little beach area, while along a private riverside walkway is our revolving Victorian summerhouse - perfect for escaping for a quiet moment on the big day! This field also houses three composting loos and two hot showers, providing all the facilities that overnight campers might need.

We cater all events at Lower House Farm ourselves, using our fantastic small-scale farm produce which includes grass-fed lamb and beef and free-range pork, all from rare-breed animals. We source other ingredients from a range of local and organic producers. Late-night pizzas from the wood-fired oven are particularly popular option for evening guests.

We pride ourselves on offering a really personal and bespoke service to our guests and are on hand to help with the organisation right from the outset. All bookings are for exclusive hire and include a day's set-up during the week leading up to the event, with afternoon tea included for the immediate bridal party.

Parking is a mixture of hard-standing and grass.
