- Private setting with totally unique interiors, barn, yoga studio, hot tub and the mountain.
Frequently asked questions
Can we have exclusive use of the venue?
Yes, this if you hire the farmhouse and the cottage, you may hire The Great Barn for one night or more since you will be running a self managed wedding and will need to decorate and tidy up.
Are you licenced for civil ceremonies?
No, we dont have a license. We recommend you get married in your registery office, or at one of the stunning local churches. We have a beautiful a stunning little church in the Llandewi Skirrid and you may be able to arrange your wedding there. It is a short drive / longer walk to the Farm.
Can we have the wedding ceremony outdoors?
You could arrange an informal wedding blessing outdoors. There are numerous stunning spots for you to do this, either with the whole wedding party or with your close friends and family who are staying on site.
Do you charge corkage if we supply our own wine?
No we do not charge corkage, this is a self managed property, you may bring your own wine, but we request you take empties away too!
Can we use our own caterers?
We recommend local caterers who know the house, please ask for details.
From what time can we get access to decorate the venue?
For a saturday wedding party, we request a minimum of 3 nights booking, so you may access The Great Barn from 4pm on the Thursday night if you are leaving on the sunday, or by 4pm on the Friday night if you are leaving on the Monday. (We look for 4 night bookings on Bank Holiday week ends). For a weekday wedding, we request a minimum of 2 night booking, so you may access the venue from 4pm the day before your wedding party and would need to vacate by 10am the day after your party, unless you book an extra night.
Are fireworks allowed?
Sadly not, unless you have SILENT with no plastic parts. Wern-Y-Cwm is set amongst fields of sheep and cattle, not to mention being dog friendly. Fireworks are not country friendly.
Is confetti allowed?
We would preffer you picked wild flowers from the meadows or threw flower petals and this was kept outside the venue in the grassy areas. But we are open to ideas on this one!
Are candles allowed?
Yes, but we offer a candel service to ensure they are safely prepared.
Is there a honeymoon or bridal suite?
Yes, we have a stunning bridal suite at the top of the Farmhouse, we call it the Peacock Room.
Is there accommodation on site?
Yes, we have 10 bedrooms, all doubles or triples. We can sleep 27 people in the house. We can also accommodate camping and glamping in the grounds.
Is there additional accommodation nearby?
Yes, we have many many friends in the area with amazing holiday lets, from Gypsey Caravans, to cottages, to a great bunkhouse at the bottom of the lane in walking distance. There is plenty of local accommodation and taxi firms to ensure your guests may all stay within a few minutes of Wern-Y-Cwm.
May we come and view the venue?
We are happy to offer viewings of the venue, but since we are generally booked up we would like to keep all viewings to the first Friday of every month from 12noon to 3pm. Should this be totally impossible for you, please let us know and we will try to offer another time.
Are dogs allowed?
Yes, we permit up to 4 well behaved, regular sized dogs at the property. They should be kept in the farmhouse kitchen where there is a dog pen in situ.
May I use my own suppliers?
Yes, are not a wedding venue in the traditional sense. We are a large furnished holiday let with a banqueting barn. You will need to make all your own arrangements, but will need to keep us fully informed so that you do not cause any concern to our neighbours. We can recommend some amazing local caterers, photographers and florists that we would thoroughly recommend although they are not on commission in any way.
How long have you been open as a wedding venue?
We have only just finished the huge renovation project here at Wern-Y-Cwm. We have had the farmhouse and cottage working as furnished holiday lets for the past 3 years as we renovated The Great Barn as a banqueting and yoga space.
What time does the reception need to finish?
Out of consideration for our neighbours we are asking for all music to be turned off at 11pm, with any day guests off the premisses. If you wish to continue to party inside the farmhouse with resident guests only, you may.
About Wern-Y-Cwm Farm
The Great Barn at Wern-Y-Cwm is perfect for a stay on site celebration weekend. With incredible views and eclectic interior décor, the huge farmhouse & cottage offer accommodation for up to 29, with the banqueting barn an impressive dinning hall.
This beautiful Grade II listed property is my private home which I have been renovating as a labour of love. Far more attention to detail & expense has been invested than you would expect for a commercial wedding venue. Before buying the farm from friends, I had been to a frequent visitor; enjoying energetic, fun and creative parties and weddings in a truly incredible setting.
With open fires and underfloor heating we offer a romantic, cosy Autumn & Winter atmosphere and the wildflowers are out of this world in the Spring and Summer. The views are exceptional year round.
Wern-Y-Cwm has always been a welcoming place and should be enjoyed by as many people as possible. It is a space for you to be inspired, to laugh, to love and to share a happy time, creating memories you will cherish for the rest of your lives.
We offer the property as a Furnished Holiday Let, with the option to invite extra day guests to join you. Ideal for a self-managed wedding celebration stay; enjoying the preparations with friends and family, saving you money and using your own creativity. You could gather wildflowers from the hedgerows, enjoy making the cake, favours and setting the tables as you chat.
Make your wedding celebration stay special in your very own way in this enchanted place on top of the world.
We hope you can take ownership of the place, enjoying it as if it were your own whilst caring for this environmentally responsible space set in our stunning organic 30 acre farm.
