Here is just a sample of some of feedback we have received:
We got married at Stockbridge Farm Barn in May 2018. Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be, and more.
We fell in love with Stockbridge Barn the moment we saw it - it simply sells itself and it was the perfect back drop to the wedding day we had imagined when we started to plan.
Cherry is a pleasure to work with, very helpful and always on hand for any questions.
The beauty of the venue is we could do whatever we wanted to make our wedding as personal as we wanted it to be.
We used Crab Apple catering for our day food which was a posh bbq served to our guests on sharing platters and chocolate brownie and ice cream for pudding!
We had Flamin Grate pizza doing our evening food which went down a storm with our guests.
Our rustic wild flowers were by Ali from Wild Farm Flowers.
We danced the night away to the Brightside Band who were fantastic.
We were blessed with beautiful warm sunny weather which meant the outside space was perfect for our guests to sit and relax with a glass of bubbly.
The venue creates a relaxed and intimate atmosphere where you can enjoy every moment of your wedding day with your family and friends.
Must also highly recommend Stoneleigh Barn B&B who were fantastic for the whole weekend. My family also said Folke Manor accommodation was great.
The bar people were really nice too.
We would thoroughly recommend this beautiful venue for any celebration and would like to thank Cherry for all of her advice and support to help us design the wedding that we wanted. This venue is perfect for those who wish to retain flexibility as you can source your own suppliers and we had access to the Barn the day before to set it all up, which allowed us to relax and enjoy the wedding morning without jobs to do!
Thank you again,
Kate and Doug
When viewing Lower Stockbridge farm as a potential venue for our wedding we immediately fell in love with it as soon as we stepped inside, it was perfect for the type of laid back style wedding that we wanted. I’d always wanted to get married outside and the barn lends itself to being able to do this. Looking around I knew I would have to organise pretty much everything including toilets, I found the website very useful in finding recommended providers, in fact, that’s where we found our caterers, The Crab & Apple (who were fantastic!).
Cherry’s communication was superb and she was able to answer every query I had promptly, I found the information packs very useful. For photographs I found it lovely that we could make use of the house gardens, which was great for the group shots. Cherry was on hand during our wedding should we have needed her and was there at the end to offer any guidance.
Inside the barn there are a lot of existing nails and places to hang signs and bunting which was very useful when decorating the barn.
Clearing up the next day could not have been easier as Cherry had boxed up all our wedding props, glasses and belongings and put them to all one side, so it was just a matter of loading up the vans, which was fantastic.
If you are looking for a laid back, country style wedding then I would highly recommend Lower Stockbridge Farm, it made my Wedding everything I had dreamt it to be.
"The Barn was just perfect. Cherry was brilliantly organised and calm with heaps of helpful suggestions in the run up and nothing was too much trouble. We had the most amazing day, the Barn meant we could have all our friends and family with us for both the Ceremony and evening celebrations and so many of our guests commented on what a beautiful space it was. It looked so magical lit up with fairy lights and the whole setting was brilliant. We couldn't think of a better place for our big day and it will always hold such special memories for us, thank you!"
Stockbridge Barn is a very special place and we would, without hesitation, recommend this to anyone wanting to marry in the Sherborne area.
We spent a great deal of time looking at venues all over Dorset; we were interested in a rustic country wedding. When we saw Stockbridge, we knew we had found the perfect place; it has an authentic, rustic charm with enormous character, but also huge space, flexibility and a lovely surrounding area. The real clincher for us however, was the owner, Cherry. Her approach was professional, but with a light touch - she was very happy for us decide how we were going to do things, but was always there to help if we needed it. Come the day, the support she gave us was excellent throughout. in addition, her recommended bar man, Andy Langland is a must hire - again, another individual who is effortlessly professional and an enormous addition to the day; taking a lot of stress out of finding, sourcing and preparing the drinks.
We have exceptionally happy memories of our day at Stockbridge, which will last a life time.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything with our wedding on the 22nd.
We had the most amazing day and everyone said how beautiful they thought the barn was - you have such a lovely place you should be very proud of it.
You have been an absolute star through all of it and I cant thank you enough for everything you have done.
For us, the barn was the most perfect setting for our wedding reception and all our guests were blown away by how beautiful it was. We particularly appreciated you letting us do our own thing - in being able to stock the bar ourselves and not have a caterer, we saved a fortune and managed to have the wedding just as we wanted. Thank you also for recommending Beth Hiscock to run everything on the day - she was *brilliant* and we were so pleased with everything she did - not having one caterer was a bit risky, but she ran everything just as I'd requested without batting an eyelid. You couldn't have been more helpful and we really appreciate everything you did to give us the best day of our lives!
The venue is magical. It manages to mix both the rustic and the comfortable, it is light without losing any of its atmosphere. Everyone was delighted with how beautiful it was, and Cherry allows you to put as much of your own personal stamp on it as you like. My daughter fell in love with it as her wedding venue as soon as she saw it, and on the day I could see why. We spent a day decorating it, and by morning any mess we had inadvertently made was tidied by Cherry. The drive, the front seating area, the barn and the yard - all immaculate. And after the wonderful day, we returned to collect our personal effects to find that the barn was once more clean and tidy and we didnt have to do any of the messy work ourselves. Cherry is a lovely lady, very kind, she really couldn't have been more helpful. I would recommend the venue to anyone, and everyone, and I do! Thank you so much.
