A FEW WORDS...

We love it when our clients send us feedback, it makes all the effort so worthwhile for our staff and owners alike. Reputations are hard to forge and easy to lose. We are delighted that now, in our sixteenth year, nearly half of our enquiries are by word of mouth.

This venue is absolutely gorgeous. And the staff are simply amazing!
We got married here last week and had the most magical day - a day we dreamed of having and South Farm fulfilled this for us - especially Michelle who went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly for us and added lots of fun!!!!
The food is out of this world and all of our guests couldn’t of praised it any more … there is a reason why they win so many awards! Thank you South Farm, you are all amazing! Danielle & Charlotte

Charli & Luke, 18th March 2022


We were lucky enough to get married at South Farm in March. Everything from our first consultation to our wedding day was amazing! All the Staff are so welcoming and friendly and happy to answer endless questions! We had Helen as our events manager on the day all I can Say is WOW she was so calming during the day and kept everything running smoothly. All our guests said the venue was absolutely stunning including the food!
I wish we could do this day again and again because for us it was beyond perfect!
Thank-you to you all, South Farm will always be a special place to us.

Just had the most amazing 24 hours here, venue is absolutely stunning, food and accommodation 5*. All guests catered for from our youngest to oldest, such amazing staff and great value for money! Thank you South Farm

Darcey and Jamie, 29th January 2022

Simply stunning, the most gorgeous venue which not only oozes character and beauty with its amazingly kept grounds and gorgeous decor but the staff are what makes this venue outstanding.
We had the lovely Erica run our wedding day and we can’t thank her enough for ensuring our big day went perfectly and couldn’t do more for us, also a huge thank you to all the lovely office staff who helped me with any queries along the way.
Our guests all commented on how amazing the food was, perfect portion sizes, fresh and tasted amazing!
If you’re looking for a venue that is upfront with costing, simply beautiful with no added extra costs such as fairy lights and want a dedicated team of professionals then this venue is a must!

Lucy Miller, 25th November 2021

What a beautiful venue and amazingly helpful staff. I got married at this wonderful venue on 25/11/2021 ( original date was 26/11/2020) the whole process from start to finish was brilliant despite covid pushing us back a year!
The whole team made our day so special, they were extremely accommodating with all of our requests, knowledgable and friendly. Everyone one from our event manager Summer to all the bar staff, kitchen staff and cleaners helped make our day perfect! We’re still buzzing and wish we do it all Over again. Thank you xxx

Lauren & Dean, 28th October 2021

We can’t thank South Farm enough for helping us create the most magical wedding day. The staff were fantastic and events manager Summer was exceptional. From start to finish the day was perfect. We wish we could do it all again.
Thank you from the new Mr and Mrs Reilly

Louisa & Andrew, 21st October 2021

I can't believe it's been four weeks already since our incredible day with you all. We can't say thank you enough for everything you did for us in the run up and during our wedding.

From our first meeting and show round in November 2018 we knew South Farm was a special place and we just had to have our wedding there. Every single person we spoke or met with was incredible, including but not limited to, Emily, Summer, Christine, Becky and Michelle; from our planning meeting, the couples taster evening (literally never known another venue that does anything that incredible), all the postponement and rescheduling, the second planning meeting and all the panicky calls and emails were dealt with nothing other than calm, friendliness and reassurance. In 20 months like no other to hit the wedding and hospitality industry, you all made us feel like everything was under control, even when it probably didn't feel like it was your end but it made all the difference to us when we were making those difficult choices.

Luckily every choice we did make with your help was absolutely the right one and the whole day was exactly - if not better - than we dreamed it would be. So many of our guests couldn't tell us enough how gorgeous the place was and were so impressed - like we were - with your onsite kitchen team and dedication to growing and raising the produce you serve. We're still getting people telling us how incredible the food was! Not a single complaint to be had and it all went down an absolute treat.

An extra special mention to Julie for being our coordinator on the day; an absolutely unflappable, consummate professional who knew all the answers to any questions we had before we asked them! From the little things like asking if we wanted a peek at the rooms after set up, to muscling her way into the evening buffet to make us up a plate of food and leave it in the bridal suite for us (the best idea EVER!), we had absolutely no worries the entire day, she was incredible.

And finally a big thank you to all the rest of the operational team who made everything run like a dream, from the kitchen team, to the F&B and bar staff. I've  worked in hospitality and customer facing roles since I was 16 and I have to say, your staff are some of the best. Even coming down to breakfast the next morning to see all the tables set up and decorated with our centerpieces and decorations was such a lovely surprising touch; so unexpected but just a lovely example of some of the things that make South Farm so special.

The only disappointment was the absolute audacity of your lovely pig to still be overdue and pregnant on the day - only for her to give birth the day after we believe? How rude, haha! Still can't believe we missed out on piglet pictures!! But we won't hold it against you :-)

Seriously guys, thank you just doesn't feel enough, you made our whole day and we'll never forget it. We won't hesitate to recommend you!

Sarah Danes, 24th July 2021

I cannot fully express just how wonderful our wedding at South Farm was on the 24th July 2021! All of our guests absolutely raved about the beautiful venue, the fantastic service and exquisite food.
Michelle was our event planner for the day and everything was just seamless. Somehow Michelle even made the sun come out!! it really was everything we had dreamed about and more. I would recommend South Farm in a heartbeat

Sally & Ryan, 19th July 2021

We would recommend this venue in a heartbeat. From the moment we set eyes on South Farm, we knew we had to get married there! The team were absolutely incredible and the day run so smoothly, we didn’t have to think or worry about a thing. Our event manager, Helen, was outstanding even on the hottest day of the year! After such a difficult year for the wedding industry, South Farm still had its magic and has come back even stronger Thank you for the bottom of our hearts.

Sam & Chris, 18th July 2021


South Farm is honestly the most amazing wedding venue! My (now) husband and I, live in Dubai and had the fun of not only planning a wedding from abroad, but also during Covid times. However, South Farm made this a piece of cake. From clear and informative communication over email and Zoom calls, to running the wedding day so efficiently and seamlessly. As Chirs said in his speech, "Thank you South Farm. We could have not asked for a better wedding venue." Everyone we have had contact with at South Farm has been extremely professional, helpful and passionate. I would like to say a special thank you to Hayley who ensured our whole day ran smoothly and was always so smiley and welcoming.


Food is a big part of our life and we spend lots of our time hunting down the best places to eat, whether it's a tiny hidden cafe, street food or a Michelin Star Restaurant. For our wedding breakfast, we opted for the Thai Banquet and it was absolutely stunning food. Every dish was mouth-watering with lovely zesty Thai flavours. All our guests commented on the freshness and vibrancy of the food and how refreshing it was to eat something a little less traditional at a wedding. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who works at South Farm. You certainly gave us our dream wedding and Covid did not dampen South Farm's spirits in the slightest.


The farm...wow, wow, wow! We were super lucky that the weather was amazing, however, I fell in love with South Farm on a grey and gloomy January morning. I honestly think the farm would shine on any day of the year. The little pigs were so gorgeous to visit and definitely entertained our smallest guests. In fact, the kids were not seen for most of the day as they were busy exploring the farm!


I would personally like to give a big shout out to our incredible photographer Gavin Hardy! Gav's work speaks for itself. It is more than incredible and I have only seen 2 photographs so far that he has kindly leaked to us. I can't wait to see all the other photos.


To conclude, we had the most incredible wedding day full of fun, love and laughter. Thank you South Farm.

Mr & Mrs Aylott, 15th July 2021


My husband and I can’t recommend South Farm enough!


We knew the moment we visited South Farm for the first time that’s where we wanted to celebrate our wedding reception. The location is stunning, the grounds are expansive, the exclusive venue use is out of this world, the piglets!!!… and other animals melted our hearts.


The staff were professional, supportive and encouraged us throughout, which was very much needed having postponed a full year due to covid. We had expected to have a restriction free wedding, then pot luck our wedding date fell 4 days before the government restrictions were lifted… but the staff at South Farm were amazing, they communicated with us throughout, and on the day helped bring our vision to life. Summer was our co-ordinator on the day and she was fantastic!


Thank you to Summer and the whole team at South Farm.

Mr & Mrs King, 3rd July 2021


Having postponed our wedding from 2020 to July this year due to COVID. The emails back and forth and the uncertainty of whether we could have a ‘normal’ wedding, left us with fear and anxiety! However when the day came, none of that mattered!! We had the BEST DAY and the level of service received by the South Farm team was AMAZING. From the moment we arrived and up till leaving, the service was 5 star!!! Our friends and family were so impressed too and the food was BEAUTIFUL!! And a big shout out to Michelle for being such a FUN events manager on the day!! We wish you all the very best for the future!



Falak Smith, 11th June 2021

What can I say about South Farm…
I visited South Farm just over 3 years ago with the interest of booking it for our wedding and WOW, it is absolutely beautiful, we booked it within the week!
Throughout the planning process, South farm were ever so helpful, answered any questions we had very quickly and thoroughly. The food tasting was organised so well and as a bonus the food tasted AMAZING Our wedding was one of the first to be effected by the Pandemic with our original date being in May 2020. South Farm were so helpful and understanding as we were to them. They really helped us and reassured us everything was going to be ok. We postponed 5 times and every single time they were on the ball and very helpful.
At last, we finally had our wedding day on the 11th June 2021, my event manager was Helen, and oh my goodness it was all organised so well, the day went PERFECTLY all thanks to Helen, making sure everything was ready in the background whilst I could relax and get ready.
Christine, Becky, Emily, Michelle, Hayley and Helen (and others!) thank you so so so much for making our dream wedding a reality. We are so grateful to you for all of your help and support. We hope we can come back and visit soon, South Farm was worth the wait

Sharon & Clare, 12th December 2020

We just wanted to share a few of our photos from our wedding ceremony on 12 December ..... we feel so lucky and privileged that we were able to get married in these strange times ... especially as we live in a Tier 4 area now.
Our Event Manager Michelle was an absolute star and couldn’t have done anymore to make our day special.
Thanks again for everyone’s help and support on the day.

Speak soon and take care

Sharon & Clare

Matt & Charlotte, 9th December 2020

Matt and I just wanted to pop an email to say how absolutely incredible everything was yesterday. Helen was totally amazing. Very attentive and friendly. Every staff member made a day that was not as planned feel like the most special day ever and we wanted to thank everyone for that too.
The food was amazing and everyone complimented on how tasty it was and well presented.

We would recommend South farm to anyone it is the most magical place on earth.

Love Matt and Charlotte xx

Sarah & Owen, 4th October 2020


Words cannot express how grateful we are for all the hard work the team at South Farm put into making our wedding day so perfect.From beginning to end, the attention to detail, personal touch, and support was brilliant - we really appreciate everything they did for us.
The venue looked stunning, everything was perfectly on time, the food was absolutely delicious, and every member of the South Farm team was a delight to be around. No request was too much.
We understand this has been a difficult time, but we were impressed by the professionalism and kindness that the whole team have shown us throughout
Special thanks also to the in house DJ - DJ Gary who was totally supportive throughout the process and understanding when we had to scale down our wedding.

Laura Hewett, 26th September 2020

We had a really lovely wedding reception at South Farm last Saturday. We initially decided upon this venue for its beautiful outdoor space and the number of guests it could welcome. Of course no one could foresee the Coronavirus situation, but we have been so impressed by South Farm’s response with their packages for smaller weddings. Even with a reception 1/6 of our intended size (and in the rain!) the space was used very well so that the reception still felt lively. The food was outstanding, the staff as welcoming as ever, and some of our friends could still stay over and enjoy a stroll around in the grounds with us in the morning.

Thanks South Farm for showing us that ‘good things come in small packages’!!!

Emily Cooper, 25th September 2020


We planned to get married on 29th April at South farm, but due to covid we had to postpone.
South farm were incredible throughout the entire process! They kept us in the loop with everything, and held our hands as our dream of a massive wedding had to be altered.
Our new date was 30th September, planned for 30 people- a huge reduction from the original 150, but we knew that South farm would still make it perfect for us!
Well, just for fun, the government decided to change restrictions again from 28th September and we were left with the predicament of reducing to just 15 people, a near enough impossible option for us as our immediate family is so huge.
We were heart broken at the thought of another set back, and after coming so close this time we didn't really know what options we were left with.
And this is where the real magic of South farm, and how accommodating they are really sets in... amazingly they had availability for us to bring our day forward and get married with 30 people on 25th September.
With their incredible help and support (especially Emily and Helen) we managed to pull together the most beautiful, perfect, and intimate wedding within 2 days!
We're still on a massive wedding day buzz now.
I'd get married here all day every day if I could.
Thank you all so much for giving us the most perfect day.
You really do go above and beyond, especially in these challenging times, you still made us feel like royalty x

 

Emma Rockwood, 19th September 2020

As soon as we arrived at South Farm for the initial walk-round we knew it was the place for us, and by the time we left we had fallen in love with it and didn’t need to even look elsewhere.
The staff really are like one big family and every single one of them will do anything to help make your day as special as possible. They are organised, professional, enthusiastic, positive, attentive, efficient and experts in their own areas. They literally are the dream team and from start to finish they all make you feel like yours is the only wedding going on in the world!
The organic food is amazing and is mainly home-grown on-site at South Farm, you are always welcome to look around the smallholding, nothing is hidden away and everything is so well maintained and loved, it really shows. The animals are adorable and it is clear that their welfare comes above anything, which is hugely important to us.
The venue speaks for itself, it is just stunning, inside and out, whatever the season. A huge amount of hard work must go on behind the scenes in keeping everything looking so great but it all feels so natural with effortless countryside beauty.
To summarise, we cannot recommend South Farm highly enough, it’s literally our perfect venue and our wedding day was simply perfect, even in times like these, so thank you all.
