To meet the growing demand for weddings and events held on the Island, a new events barn will be opening at award-winning wedding venue, East Afton Farmhouse, this summer.
Designed to a high specification and available for exclusive hire, the new barn will increase the capacity of the East Afton venue - allowing for around 170 sit down and 200 standing guests - and provide more versatile indoor facilities for year-round use.
Overlooking a stone courtyard and in keeping with the Farmhouse and two other event barns, the new barn will be a mix of rustic brick and timber cladding with a vaulted ceiling. Large glass windows and doors will open onto the courtyard, giving a bright and spacious feel. Complete with commercial kitchen and all facilities, the barn will also feature underfloor heating and an 8metre long bar.
All three barns are licensed for wedding ceremonies and there is the option of accommodation for up to 18 guests in the impressive 18th Century Farmhouse and adjoining annex. Further luxury accommodation options are available at the neighbouring Tapnell Farm with its award-winning attractions and restaurant.
