The Cider Barn – Dillington Estate

The Cider Barn is a simple, rustic, but wonderfully charming venue. You find this old agricultural stone and thatched barn up a bumpy track through the woods. When you arrive, you’re surrounded by the fields and woods of the Dillington Estate and lost to the world – apart from the views across the rolling Somerset countryside – in your own rustic, magical and romantic haven.

It is rented as it comes and ready for you to create the wedding you want – though we can also help by putting you in touch with local suppliers. There is some information below, but please contact us using the form below and we would be glad to discuss the venue, the options and how we can help.

It’s an understated venue where you can create your wedding without restrictions on who does the catering, who runs the bar, which wines are available, etc., and it works hand-in-hand with the beautiful accommodation on offer on the Estate to make a full weekend of your celebrations.

We have some lovely holiday cottages across the Estate. They’re listed on our website, including the Dairy House (sleeps 15), Atherstone Farmhouse and Cottage (sleeps 14) and Orchard Cottage (sleeps 6-8). We can also recommend a list of other local places to stay on booking, or provide space for your guests to camp / glamp.

We would be delighted to host you – please do get in touch and we can answer any questions you might have and / or arrange to show you around if you’d like to come and visit.
