"Beautiful, unique venue which exceeded our expectations in every way and we really did have our dream wedding!The gardens provided the perfect backdrop for our photos and the holiday cottage was an added bonus for guests to be able to stay onsite.The hosts were exceptionally accommodating and helpful.Thank you so much!"                                                                                                                                                Amy & Kevin 

Ashton Barn and Farmyard is a unique setting for your country wedding. The Georgian barn is set in a traditional farmyard just  3 miles from Dorchester next to the extraordinary Celtic Hillfort, Maiden Castle. In a quiet and  secluded valley it provides the perfect venue for many events and the yard and barn provide an endlessly flexible space for all celebrations. We have one holiday cottage within the yard to provide characterful onsite  accommodation for guests or the Bride and Groom.

There are kitchen facilities within the barns, excellent toilets and underfloor heating in the main barn so winter events are also perfectly possible. Onsite parking is  available in a nearby field.

Everything for the perfect country wedding. 

The main barn can seat 150 guests and a marquee can also be erected in the large grass farmyard. 

The barn is licensed for civil wedding  ceremonies so your entire celebrations can take place at one venue. For information about  civil ceremonies  please go to:

We are delighted to accept enquiries for weddings in 2024.
