Gone are the days of hosting your special day in uninspiring registry offices and spiritless hotel rooms, your wedding day only happens once, so of course you want to find a venue that captures you as a couple.

With so many wedding venues out there to choose from, it can be tricky to find a venue that reflects your individual style and personality perfectly, as well as finding a wedding venue that allows you to have the creative freedom to be able to make your wedding as unique as you are.

Many venues only offer set packages, a large minimum number of guests and plenty of restrictive rules. If you’ve already viewed a few venues, we’re sure you’ll now have a list of pros and cons, with no venue offering 100% of what you had in mind for your dream day; the one day you really shouldn’t have to compromise!

Worry no more, we’ve discovered The Owl Barn at Little Seed Field an intimate, wildly romantic celebration space that’s all about embracing your personality, identity and style and allows you to have the creative freedom to make your wedding your own without any restrictions.

We’re talking no minimum guest requirements, the chance to hire all your favourite suppliers and you can even bring along your four-legged friend, too. This romantic Yorkshire wedding barn is perfect if you’re wanting a micro wedding surrounded by just your nearest and dearest.

With an unrivalled backdrop of seven acres of meadow, woodland and nature and located on the edge of the wild Yorkshire moorlands, The Owl Barn is the perfect secluded, exclusive oasis for you to tie the knot and let your imagination and creativity run wild.

HLN TOP TIP: If you book your wedding in early spring, autumn or midweek, you can save up to 20% on venue hire charges.


A wedding day at The Owl Barn is wild, romantic and one you and your guests won’t be forgetting about any time soon.  In this tranquil setting of Yorkshire Dales, you have the option to get married either in one of the fabulous outdoor areas near the ponds and woodlands, immersed in nature or inside a renovated Yorkshire stone barn, wrapped in decades of rustic charm.

If you’re dreaming of having an elopement wedding but are unable to find a venue that caters for this (and don’t fancy Gretna Green), The Owl Barn is proud to be one of only a very small number of locations in Yorkshire, to offer an elopement service. This Yorkshire wedding venue is licenced to host civil ceremonies (although you do not have to have your legal marriage on site).


This romantic Yorkshire wedding barn knows that one wedding package doesn’t fit every couple, so that’s why it’s all about personal touches, romantic ceremonies and tailored adaptations to make each wedding unique to every bride and groom.

The Owl Barn allows you to bring your own style and approach to your wedding celebration.  Here you can expect bespoke packages that are designed specifically for you and can include all your favourite suppliers. Whether you want to hire the barn only for an intimate ceremony, full exclusive hire for a big bash or hire the field for a large marquee to host your own DIY wedding, the options are endless.

If you’ve always dreamed of an intimate, creative and personal celebration where you can just be yourselves, a wedding at The Owl Barn can be as relaxed or as formal as you choose. It is beautiful and wild and completely tailorable to the vision you have for your big day.

The Owl Barn is a venue that you choose for you, not because it suits your guests or for the set packages. Here you can create a day in your style and bring your guests in to celebrate your way.


As an inclusive wedding venue, the dedicated team at The Owl Barn understand that not everyone is looking for a traditional approach.  As a family run business, owner Joanne and her friendly team will spend time getting to know you, your vision and your requirements.

When you are planning your big day at this romantic Yorkshire wedding barn, we guarantee you won’t just feel like another bride and groom on the list. The Owl Barn team will work hard to assist in creating a beautiful, bespoke wedding, whether it be just the two of you or 200 of you. Plus, they’ll be on hand to help you as much or as little as you need on your special day.

From choosing to star gaze for your evening entertainment to riding off into your happily ever after on horseback and ending your evening with s’mores around the campfire, the knowledgeable Owl Barn team are there to recommend the best local suppliers and help make your ideas become a reality.


  1. After sharing ideas and early plans via email, you’ll have an initial consultation on-site, where you’ll chat with the friendly team about options and pricing.
  2. Here, Joanne will help by sharing previous videos and images of how your day could work and together you’ll develop a framework for your celebration.
  3. You will then work together to source any additional suppliers you may need and complete a plan for your big day.

On your wedding day 

On the day itself, you have the option of having the onsite team with you all day.  Alternatively, if you’d prefer a private affair and plan to run everything yourself, the team will ensure you have everything you need and leave you to enjoy your celebration privately.


Following the exciting build up to your special day, we know how quickly your wedding celebration can pass. So why not extend your celebrations over several days?

Whether you want to stay the night before for a relaxing pamper night with your bridal party or stay the night after your wedding to de-brief with family and friends over a nice meal, The Owl Barn’s Yorkshire Dales Glamping site allows you to do so.

Yorkshire Dales Glamping site brings you luxury glamping in breath-taking surroundings allowing you to relax and unwind before and after your wedding. The seven insulated log cabins can accommodate up to 28 guests and are complete with everything you need, from luxury beds to log stoves and outdoor fire pits, providing the ultimate base for a break in nature.

With acres of land to discover on site (including ponds and ancient woodland) and miles of walking and cycling routes from the doorstep, this truly is the perfect location for extending the time for making lifelong memories with your loved ones.
