About The Victorian Barn wedding venue

On passing through the lobby of The Victorian Barn you enter the magnificent Osborne Hall which simply exudes atmosphere and where random original stone features have been sympathetically retained.

The Osborne Hall is very spacious and occupies the centre span of the Victorian Barn. It can seat up to 150 with further options to increase the total capacity by incorporating generously proportioned adjoining lounges.

Step on to the flagstone floor which cleverly contrives to be both warm in winter and cool in summer. At the end of the hall is a specially laid dance floor and next to it a staircase ascends to the Minstrel Gallery with its wooden balustrades dramatically circumventing the hall below.

Soaring above is the glass roof through which you can gaze at the clouds floating by during the day and observe the heavens at night , - no street lighting here! The temperature is always 'just right' thanks to the remotely controlled glass roof lights which may be opened individually or as a group, and should the weather prove inclement they simply close automatically.

Wrought iron chandeliers are suspended from the beams within the vaulted ceiling and further soft wall lights add to the ambiance.

On the practical side there is under floor heating throughout the floor of the barn and a convenient fully equipped kitchen leading off the hall area and plenty of room for a bar, disco, small band or string quartet!

Additional details:

The Victorian Barn nestles under Bulbarrow Hill on a small working beef farm in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is situated 8 miles west of the Georgian town of Blandford Forum and four miles south of Sturminster Newton, being an old Medieval market town as mentioned in the doomsday book.

The Victorian Barn is a triple span barn and was originally built in 1849. Dairy cows were kept in stalls and milked by hand some of the milk was processed and made into cheese and the whey would have been fed back to the pigs on the farm. The working shire horses were also stabled in the barn.

The Victorian Barn is a large building comprising 7 modern and luxurious accommodation suites which are able to accommodate both small and large groups for romantic getaways, holidays and special occasions. In addition to the accommodation the barn has two large function lounges with kitchen facilities for intimate parties and events.

Wedding Day

We chose the Victorian Barn as the venue for our Wedding. They were able to host the Ceremony, Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception. As they are set up as self catering accommodation, our guests didn't have very far to go at the end of the night either. We had family...
