ECO-FRIENDLY WEDDING VENUE IN THE UK
fforest Farm is the perfect location for a relaxed, informal, weekend-long celebration with family and friends. It’s yours for the weekend with its choice of event spaces from giant hat tipis, dining and party barns, garden pavilion, private tiny stone pub, large communal fire pit and secret woodland sauna.
The farmyard is the perfect spot for an intimate winter wedding of up to 40 guests, or can combine with the cedar barn for up to 250. From April to October fforest host larger weddings for up to 250, offering a flexible combination of celebration spaces. You can choose between outdoor festival or indoor hygge.
The wonderful staff at fforest work with you to accommodate larger informal weddings of 250 taking full advantage of all the spaces available to you, adding a bespoke tented festival village to house the additional guests.
The lodge barn accommodates up to 90 for dining, with space for 154 in the cedar barn and unlimited numbers dining informally in fforest Farm’s 200 acres. For small, intimate winter weddings a dinner party atmosphere is created in fforest lodge or Tŷ fforest, the Georgian farmhouse.
In 2017, fforest was judged by National Geographic as one of the top 3 glamping resorts in the world! Yes the world! This was fantastic recognition for fforest, being the only venue in Wales to get a mention in any of the 20 categories celebrating the best taste-making and game-changing hotels across the globe. Judges included Tom Chesshyre, travel writer for The Times, Nikki Tinto, co-founder of i-escape, and James & Tamara Lohan, founders of Mr & Mrs Smith along with members of the National Geographic Traveller (UK) team.
But, not to be complacent, fforest has been constantly evolving since the award and now has mostly cosy heated and insulated accommodation with private showers or bathhouses, suitable for luxurious year-round occupation. fforest Farm weddings are residential, with a minimum 2 night stay. In the farmyard, you’ll find the spacious Georgian farmhouse, split level crog lofts and cosy garden shacs with the living space spilling out onto the terrace; in the surrounding fields, beautifully furnished, romantic geodesic domes either with an adjoining Japanese-style outdoor onsen bathhouse, or a cosy indoor private bathhouse with underfloor heating a short woodland walk away, and the new hill shac suites all with flexible double/twin rooms and a deep outdoor terrace to take in the air and the birdsong.
All guest accommodation includes a relaxed supper or wood-fired pizza party on arrival day, breakfast on the morning of your wedding celebrations and a big Welsh barbecue brunch the morning after.
