The Tudor Barn

This splendid building, elm framed, owes its survival to our Wedding guests, for without extensive restoration in 2004/5 it would have collapsed. The new plinth, the pillars for the six venerable main beams and the bar are built with old hand made bricks recovered from the floor.

Dating we believe from Tudor times, the Barn should now have another lease of hundreds of years of life as one of the most stunning barn wedding venues available. South Farm’s Tudor Barn boasts the beautiful contrast of ancient reclaimed materials with stunning modern drapes and twinkling fairy lights presenting a magical backdrop for a perfect wedding breakfast.


The Barn, measuring 60 foot by 30, with four bays, makes a grand and impressive setting for the Wedding Ceremony and is licensed for up to 146, for the Wedding Breakfast it provides formal seating for 146 and for a party, up to 200.

Seating plans

Table plans are quite flexible. Brides often choose an oval top table, which we recommend as it is much friendlier than a traditional one-sided banqueting table. Up to 100 guests can sit at round tables, above that number banqueting tables fill the aisles with round tables down the centre.

The heart of the site

The Barn forms the core of South Farm’s many and varied entertaining spaces that make up our Cambridgeshire wedding venue. It is always gratifying for us to hear the intake of breath when newcomers first enter. It never fails to impress, whether dressed with abundant flowers or simply speaking for itself. Whether you’re from the local area, or looking for barn wedding venues in Essex, South Farm is not one to be missed.

The Kitchens

Our state of the art banqueting kitchens abut the end gable. The kitchens are the very first in the county to achieve the coveted Elite Status for consecutively achieving a Food Hygiene Rating of Five Stars from Scores on the Doors. They also facilitate exceptional service timed to perfection and we are proud of the fact that we can cater for any event and offer an extensive range of menus.
