Brimming with 20 acres of luscious grounds, orchards and meadows, it’s not hard to see how Netherton Farm came to be affectionately called The Green.
In its early history, the estate was home to the famous Yarg cheese, exclusively produced on site. More recently, however, this former dairy farm received a remarkable makeover, and the first-class renovation of its barns has made it a hugely popular wedding venue.
Famed for its charm, beauty and class, this spot thrives amongst Cornwall’s abundant rustic wedding venue options. So, if you’re looking for a barn wedding venue with a difference, here are some reasons to choose The Green Cornwall for your big day.
If the intro didn’t sell it enough, you’ll be pleased to know that The Green’s beauty extends far beyond the estate’s private grounds. Located on Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall’s most raw and rugged areas, you’ll be spoilt with views of endless natural beauty.
Close to the Devon border, The Green is nestled downhill of Bodmin’s striking heights, providing an isolated and quiet spot for the magic to unfold, and nothing and no one but the wildlife to join your celebrations. This remote and charming location will make you and your guests feel wonderfully wild and free.
When it comes to barn weddings, the options out there cover a vast scale; from a barely touched, working farm venue, to a completely transformed and meticulously designed barn conversion.
With its 5-star, gold-rated accommodation and four reception barns; needless to say, The Green sits at the higher end of the scale. The conversion of these buildings has been completed to a very high standard, offering an effortlessly luxurious experience for the whole wedding party and guests to relish.
Get married outdoors
The Green offers a feast of spaces for both the wedding ceremony and accommodation. If your wedding is taking place in the warmer months, you can opt for an outdoor ceremony set by the river and overlooking the picturesque and serene Lake Arbour. Or if you prefer a more earthy location, Oak Arbour is perfect. This spot, which is graced with two beautifully imposing oak trees, is located on the hillside, boasting views of the stunning valley below.
Indoor spaces, close to nature
Alternatively, the Wedding Barn and Really Rustic Barn are perfect indoor venues, while allowing you to remain close to nature. The Wedding Barn is adorned for its original and authentic charisma, with big beams and oak floors, while the Really Rustic Barn is a great space for a spot of DIY styling. You can even tie the knot or hold your reception in the Red Brick Barn which used to be a cowshed! (Though, you’d never know it.) This building retains the original red brick walls and roof beams, and the rest is pure glamour, with floor-to-ceiling doors that open up to stunning views of Dartmoor and Kitt Hill.
Charm around every corner
Beyond the striking barns, and characterful house and cottages, there’s plenty of exploring to do within the extensive grounds of the estate. You and your guests can relax after the ceremony by taking a stroll in the woods and along the stream, or with a peaceful dip in the wood-fired hot tub.
Or if it’s a cocktail you’re after, the contemporary and chic Green Room Bar is a great place to enjoy the abundant views. It’s also a popular venue for breakfast with your guests the next day.
