Well Hidden, Worth Finding
Tucked away in a quiet corner of south Suffolk, Dove Barn is a romantic, rural wedding barn nestling among rolling wheat fields and rambling hedgerows. Just outside the village of Boxford Dove Barn offers you a relaxed and rustic venue set in the grounds of the elegant Castlings Hall.
Dove Barn excels in intimate weddings from around 25 people and up to 60 guests. Set on a working farm, the venue encompasses two inter-connecting barns, a sheltered terrace, and large wedding meadow.
At Dove Barn the emphasis is on offering fewer weddings at a relaxed pace. Whether weekend or mid-week the hire period is from midday the day before your wedding until midday the day after. Giving you lots of time to decorate it in your own unique style.
From February 2022 Dove Barn will be offering Celebrant-led weddings and Wedding Reception only. The Venue will no longer hold a civil license. Find out more HERE.
Dove Barn offers:
- Wedding Receptions for up to 60 guests
