Since opening its gates, Nancarrow Farm has established itself as a beautiful, rustic and charming wedding venue, enticing couples from near and far to celebrate their special day here.
Now a hugely popular choice when it comes to barn and country wedding venues in the UK, it’s not difficult to see why Nancarrow Farm is so loved. Here are just some of the reasons to pick this unique venue for yourselves.
1. In the heart of Cornwall
Located in Zelah, a small village in the centre of Cornwall, Nancarrow Farm is close to the city of Truro as well as the stunning North coast. It’s a superb spot for exploring this rugged county and all its delights.
You won’t be disappointed with the views from the farm either – tucked away in a hidden valley, everywhere you look you’re met with a bounty of countryside. Following the drive down the oak-tree and Cornish hedgerow lined bumpy track, you’ll be greeted by 100 acres of rolling pastures and meadows, with the beautiful farmhouse and barns at its heart. This serene setting will take you a million miles away from civilisation.
2. Rustic barns
With the scene now set a little in your mind; now picture beautiful, historic and rustic barns where all of the magic unfolds. Five barns have been restored at the farm, providing plenty of spaces to choose from to best suit your plans.
From the charismatic hay barn, with exposed, rustic beams, to the green-oak framed event barn overlooking the millpond, each space has a long list of boastful features. Or, if the weather is lovely and you want to step outside, then you can opt to get married in the open-air overlooking the courtyard. The possibilities are endless here, and wherever you choose to have your ceremony and reception on the farm, you’ll be graced with an unbeatable atmosphere.
3. Allure in all seasons
Nancarrow Farm offers something different, yet equally appealing, in each season. If you’re having a spring, summer, or autumn wedding, the courtyard provides a colourful array of wildflowers and herbs, and you can enjoy a quiet and sun-drenched spot on the lawns. Or, for a winter wedding, the log burner in the Oak Barn is fired up, and warm, subtle lighting contributes to a cosy and intimate wonderland.
Each barn is a blank canvas too, inviting you to put your own stamp on the space. Adding big splashes of colour to the tables, for example, can transform the environment into a summery playground. So, even if the rain is falling heavily outside, you can still create the picture you’ve always dreamed of.
4. A captivating working farm
Nancarrow is a working farm, which results in bucketloads of character. Unlike many wedding venues, styled purely for ceremonies, at Nancarrow you can see a hive of activities and feel its authenticity around every corner.
At this Soil Association certified, organic farm, there’s native breed livestock spotted across the fields and a bustling farmhouse kitchen. The farm has been in the family for nine generations, four of which currently live there and ensure its daily runnings, so there’s no shortage of love and nurturing throughout. And this extends to the hospitable and professional team on hand too. They know just what makes a good wedding, and do everything they can to make your wedding day unforgettable.
6. The finest, organic food
From a working farm, comes fresh and delectable produce. Nancarrow Farm is famed for its award-winning organic beef and lamb, reared using traditional methods. So, if you want a real taste of the county’s finest, then look no further. The experienced chefs also use seasonal produce from local suppliers to cook up the ultimate combination of flavours and serve up a real feast for you and your guests.
Needless to say, Nancarrow Farm is a truly individual wedding venue that serves up something different to the norm, and fun!
