Originally built in 1863, Woolas Barn is not just a farm; it has been a family home for three generations.
You’ll find the buildings are peppered with unique marks from a distant past, be it names of German Prisoners of War or railways sleepers liberated by previous farmers that ran the farm before our family acquired it after the Second World War.
Woolas Barn holds a licence for civil ceremonies and couples can now make use of the stunning ceremony room.
This amazing wedding venue consists of three main areas.
The courtyard is an impressive open outside area with easterly views across the fields to the historic City of York. Perfect for enjoying toasting marshmallows on the fire pit after the sun goes down, or just soaking up the serenity of the Yorkshire countryside.
Granary is the oldest part of Woolas Barn. With authentic barn doors and a stunning double-height ceiling entrance, this is the social hub of the venue. Featuring a rustic bar, reception area and most importantly space to strut your stuff when the music starts. Upstairs lie two cosy snugs providing the perfect place to enjoy a chat with old friends over a cocktail or two!
Gone are the days of using this area for nursing cute little lambs. The Lambing Shed now boasts a striking vaulted ceiling and glass doors providing views across the Courtyard and beyond. With traditional Yorkshire boarding and exposed brickwork throughout it’s the quintessential blend of rustic charm and natural warmth, with space for up to 130 of your closest friends and family to dine.
