About Sheepdrove Organic Farm
One of the most sustainable wedding venues in the UK. Sheepdrove has been built to be as ethically and environmentally responsible as possible. Our impact on the environment has been minimised by using recycled, renewable and local materials.
Every detail has been considered to create a wedding venue that aims to be 100% carbon neutral and puts all of its efforts into protecting and enhancing the magnificent wildlife and landscape that we are a part of. It’s not just our building that makes a difference - our whole estate has been building biodiversity and enhancing the environment for over the past 15 years.
An inspiring, flexible canvas upon which to create a truly unique wedding day. We offer exclusive use on the day of the wedding and the day before to enable you to dress the venue as you wish.
We don't tie you into in house caterers instead we work with a handpicked selection of outside catering companies that locally source all produce to meet your needs; organic and non-organic. Alternatively, you can pick your own. We have our own fully licensed bar.
We are licences for civil ceremonies in two of our rooms; the cathedral-like vaulted Oak room and the light and airy Beech room. We have a wealth of unique and inspiring spaces for you to use exclusively: A circular Rook's nest in our entrance tower, a flint Mosaic amphitheatre, an aromatic physic garden, lake, boathouse and jetty, all encapsulated within a 2,500 acre organic estate.
