Weddings & Special Occasions

A picture perfect countryside setting for weddings and celebrations


Set within 650 acres of peaceful Dorset countryside, Luccombe Farm is a picture perfect setting for your intimate wedding or special celebration.

If you are seeking a rustic-style countryside wedding venue we can’t think of a more picturesque location to celebrate your special day.

Mintern Barn event venue

Celebrations are held in our lovingly converted Mintern Barn with its glorious surrounding landscaped gardens.

It’s the perfect indoor outdoor venue. There’s an interior dining room for up to 25 guests and a larger room which can sit up to 75 guests. The larger room can also be used as a stand-up zone for when the music starts and the celebrations begin!

Your celebration can spread out to the grounds and there is plenty of space for tipis and marquees if required.

Coupled with our fully-equipped holiday cottages, Luccombe Holidays is perfect. You can enjoy an intimate few days of togetherness with family and friends. Then at the end of the day everyone can head back to their own private holiday cottage.

Weddings, Events & Parties

As a fully licensed wedding venue, there are plenty of beautiful outdoor spaces within Luccombe Farm’s grounds. The perfect place to hold your wedding or wedding vow renewal ceremony and to organise memorable wedding photos and videos. Luccombe Farm is only available to hire as a whole for weddings and special celebrations. This is to ensure your complete privacy, as we do not accept accommodation bookings during your event.

The minimum stay is for three nights and you will have exclusive run of the accommodation and facilities during that time. We are unable to accept wedding and event bookings during school holidays or half-term.

We don’t have an in-house wedding or events team, but we will be happy to recommend local services such as an event planner, officiant, photographer & videographer, catering company, hair stylist and makeup, decoration and flowers, and sound and technical resources.

Corporate events and retreats

At Luccombe Farm we can also cater for corporate events and team-building, workshops and retreats. If you are planning a special event and need an integrated complex for up to 45 invitees, our farm is ideal.

There is plenty of outdoor space to organise team building activities or sports and wellness pursuits. In fact you have over 650 acres of rolling countryside to enjoy!

Our combined cottage stays and on-site event facilities are ideal. You and your team can bond and bounce ideas without having to travel from the event location to separate accommodation.

During your stay you will have access to all our facilities including the indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, gym, tennis court, games room, children’s play area, garden games and the lakeside BBQ. You can even pick your own fruit in our orchard!

Cottage accommodation

We have eleven on-site cottages which in total sleep up to 45 guests, ideal for small to midsize gatherings. The fully equipped cottages are varying in size offering accommodation from two to seven guests.

We have toddler-friendly single storey options ideal for those who have difficulty with stairs and one wheel-chair friendly cottage.
