Your Wedding Venue
Surrounded by a landscape unchanged for centuries, Park Farm lies secluded on the historic Shuckburgh Estate. Approached by a mile long drive, flanked either side by a Deer Park and expansive rolling countryside, we can provide a private and totally unique backdrop for your special day.
Our venue consists of two original rustic barns full of character with a wealth of exposed beams and fairy lights, both of which are licenced for civil ceremonies. Adjoining the Cart Shed is a marquee which increases our capacity and beautiful gardens, grounds and spacious bed and breakfast and glamping accommodation all add to the welcoming atmosphere at Park Farm. The Cart Shed is an unspoilt country barn licensed for ceremonies but predominantly used for your festivities and The Lambing Shed is our main ceremony barn by day and a relaxed space to sit back and chill by night.
We pride ourselves on our flexible approach at Park Farm and whilst being able to offer a comprehensive list of local suppliers who all offer years of experience and expertise, we are also happy for you to source your own. We outsource all catering and bar requirements and with our no corkage policy this gives you the opportunity to reflect your own personal taste in all areas.
We are always on hand to help you navigate your way through all stages of your wedding planning and are here on site for the duration of your stay with us. Book a wedding at Park Farm and let us help guide and support you from your initial viewing through to your departure the morning after your wedding.
The Cart Shed
The Cart Shed is aptly named as it’s original purpose was to house horse drawn carts for the farm. It is a totally unspoilt red brick and tiled rustic barn and with our adjoining spacious 9 x 8m marquee, we have the capacity to seat a maximum number of 130 guests comfortably on either round or trestle tables. We can accomodate further guests in the evening, bringing the total evening capacity to 180 guests. With expansive views from all directions and wonderful rustic timbers decked with fairy lights we have created a truly magical and atmospheric venue for you and your guests to enjoy over a three day hire period.
On a sunny day we can draw open the curtains to the Cart Shed and open up the marquee allowing the sun to stream through and with our glowing fire pit and outside seating, guests can relax and party under the twinkling festoon lights.
The Lambing Shed
Originally a milking parlour, The Lambing Shed has a wealth of character and is generally the first choice of our two barns in which to host your civil ceremony and is licensed for 100 guests (including all officials, registrars, photographers etc). After the ceremony has taken place, we replace the chairs with more comfortable seating and with the addition of a large central woodburner The Lambing Shed becomes a cosy and intimate space for those quieter moments in the evening.
When not being used for civil ceremonies, The Lambing Shed can be utilised in many different ways. Perfect for an indoor drinks reception and later ideal for a quiet cup of tea relaxing on the comfortable sofas with family and friends. Photo booths, gin/whisky bars, cheese tables, evening food, indoor games etc have all been hosted in the Lambing Shed, the list of possibilities is endless.
“We cannot thank Jill and Tim enough for hosting our wedding at Park Farm, it was just perfect. It allowed us to create our wedding to reflect our personalities and we were beaming from ear to ear seeing all of our guests enjoy the day as much as we did. Communication with Jill was fantastic and she was so flexible which allowed us just to have the most perfect day. The venue is just gorgeous. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.”

The Orchard offers plenty of space for outdoor ceremonies or to erect bell tents, yurts etc to give a glamping /festival theme to your wedding. Using our local tent supplier and incorporating our fabulous shepherds huts you can turn the orchard into a tented village accommodating guests overnight or alternatively why not let friends and family pitch their own tents.
For family gatherings and to help entertain the children, add old fashioned garden games such as sack races, hoopla etc. Among the ancient oak trees, there is a large oak swing which adds to the excitement not to mention additional photo opportunities!
Please be aware we have a pond at the far end of the orchard, whilst fenced off, children do need to be supervised and accompanied by an adult at all times.
“We chose park farm for our wedding for the views and the fact that you had the option of putting your own stamp on the wedding so it felt completely personal to you as a couple and that is exactly what we got! Jill and Tim were very helpful and thought of the things that I hadn’t! All of our guests loved the venue and some even to say it was the best wedding they had ever been to! We thoroughly enjoyed all it had to offer including the accommodation and breakfast. It is full of rustic charm which is the style we wanted, despite the wind and rain it was perfect in every way and made for some different and funny photo opportunities! Thank you Jill and Tim for a lifetime of memories.”
