Here are some of our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ which may assist with the planning of your event.
A. Yes you can. We hold a licence for civil ceremony in the Old Dairy Barn, The Oak Barn and our grounds for outside ceremonies.

Our venue hire reflects that we do not significantly charge you for “no corkage.” We are a responsible licensee, and licensed in the same way as a public house, and for the control of alcohol, we do not allow alcohol not purchased at Coton House Farm on site. This is maintained as part of our licensing duties.
