We were appointed by Calmsden Farms to provide Approved Inspector services on the creation of a brand new barn conversion wedding venue in the heart of the Cotswolds.

The existing site is a collection of Grade II listed agricultural and industrial buildings, including a large Cotswold stone barn that is full of character and history, a ‘U’ shaped shelter shed and an open sided Dutch barn with a corrugated steel roof. The property is licenced to hold civil ceremonies and the barn space allows for 120 guests to be seated for the ceremony. Afterwards, guests can transition between the outdoor kitchen, Argentine fire pit and bar area, all of which offer views of stunning scenery.

The venue was established by Yard Space Events, who already have a decade of experience in running and catering events with their hugely popular street food and the opening of two pubs.

“It was fantastic to work on this project with such a great team, the finished result is a really special venue that is set in a beautiful part of the country. Due to the intended use and the occupancy numbers of the buildings, careful consideration has been given to fire safety regulations.”
