Nothing is certain these days except the need to be flexible. So, with micro weddings being the only way we can celebrate right now, there’s lots of opportunity to do things differently. Over the last few months, we have been been able to host ceremonies and receptions at Abbotstone with reduced numbers – and they have been incredibly intimate and special.
Read our blog to see how we made two brides dreams come true.
ABBOTSTONE FARM HOUSE AND BARN
Abbotstone Farm House and Barn provides you with a wealth of options. It’s the perfect place for you and your family to stay for your wedding at The Grange (our distressed chic mansion) or right now, when numbers are reduced, in which you can host the whole event.
You can have as many as 18 to stay in the Farm House – plus four others in the cottage alongside – and use our Barn to dial up the numbers for ceremonies, lunches, dinners and even some dancing. It’s all yours but with plenty of help if you want it.
Abbotstone Farm House
Lovingly furnished with an elegant, colourful mix of home comforts. It feels like a family home and is set up for having a great time with the people you love. There’s lots of spaces to be together in and plenty of room to be able to get a break from each other. With 8 double bedrooms, extensive gardens, terraces and spring fed ponds – for elegant meandering – an outdoor swimming pool (for the warmer months), a ping pong room and a tennis court for working up a sweat.
Adjacent to the Farm House, the Barn is a great place to let your hair down.
The Barn provides a simple, comfortable back drop for you to adapt as you see fit. It is licenced for wedding ceremonies for up to 60 guests. And to help you we have our resident food wizard Becka Cooper and our homegrown medal winning The Grange Hampshire sparkling wine.
You can ask Becka to produce the food you want; whether a 3 course dinner with waiting staff or a hearty venison stew that you heat up and serve yourself. Whatever you decide, she’ll come up with generous, vibrant and dishes based on seasonal ingredients from local producers.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
“We just wanted to thank you for the use of Abbotstone Barn on Saturday for our wedding reception. It really couldn’t have been more perfect in every way, being such a beautiful barn and so accessible. We had great fun decorating it and we all enjoyed the warm atmosphere created by Becka’s outstanding menu and her delightful and very professional staff”.
