The Grade II*Listed, Dronfield Hall Barn is built around an early 15th century timber-framed manor house. It is a beautifully restored and quirky venue, full of character, dating back to 1430 and located in the heart of the historic town of Dronfield, Derbyshire.

Within easy reach of the Peak District and near the cities of Sheffield and Nottingham, our charming venue is the perfect setting for your special day. Whether you are looking for a unique venue for your complete and all-inclusive wedding package or you want to add a special touch to your ceremony or Wedding Breakfast: our dedicated team will work with you to make your special day truly memorable.

In 2021, we were delighted to be recognised as one of the country’s top wedding venues by Lux Life Magazine. In their Global Wedding Awards 2021, the Barn was awarded the title of “Best Individual Wedding Ceremony Venue – East Midlands“! This accolade is testament to just how hard our team has worked since the Barn first opened in 2016. So if you, or anyone you know, is currently looking for a wedding venue, why not consider the Barn?

We got married here 3 years ago. First to marry in the Barn, and it was absolutely perfect. Thoroughly recommend Olivia – she’s an incredible person and will make your day perfect.

We got married here last year. The venue was amazing, there was scope to put your own slant on the venue and personalise it. Olivia and the team at the Barn could not have done any more for us. It was perfect. Would definitely recommend!

Our daughter got married on her reception at the Barn last June. It was amazing, a great venue and the food was fantastic. The staff and venue are brilliant too, so I really recommend it.”

A massive thank you to the staff at the Barn for everything you did for my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary party. The service was incredible, the food was beautiful, and don’t get me started on the amazing desserts! All the extra little touches made it the perfect evening – I can highly recommend the Barn to anyone who is thinking of somewhere for a special function!

Sandra Clarke

Our daughter had her wedding here and the Barn staff were excellent. They make your day absolutely perfect – I would highly recommend Dronfield Hall Barn as a wedding venue.

Michelle Brightmore

The Barn is an amazing venue with a very efficient and personal service. We had our son’s wedding here, and it was fabulous from start to finish. Big thank you to all the hard-working staff who were on duty.

Kay Bingley

It was a joy to work with the team. From start to finish, every one of our sometimes, quirky wishes were brought to life, and nothing was too much trouble. We would have no hesitation in urging anyone looking at the Barn to say ‘yes’ for a wedding that is relaxed, charming and with a real ‘local’ feel. It was certainly a day we won’t forget.
