Your first visit to view Middle Coombe Farm, to ascertain if it is
an option for your wedding, should last approx 1 – 2 hours. The
show- through takes you to the cider barn, the farmhouse, the
grounds, the stone circle the ceremonial oak tree in the woods.
Afterwards we’ll sit and discuss your favoured options.
We book viewings on Fridays at 1.30 pm- viewing the house needs
to be completed by 3pm in order not to disturb guests already in
residence or just moving in. Once people have moved in the house
becomes their space, their house flor the duration.

possible by email/phone in order to save on travel thus helping us
all towards a better environment.
