The Flying Fish wedding barn is a perfect, fully licensed rural venue, offering a blank canvas for couples to make it their own for a truly unforgettable wedding day.

Housing not just charm and character, the barn has it’s own garden

Whilst inside you have full use of the following: PA system, disco lighting, stage, fairy light canopy, candelabras, chairs and rustic farmhouse style tables, not forgetting the necessities of onsite bar and toilets – everything you need to host your ceremony and reception.

Rural position, surrounded by fields with stunning views across to The Blackdown Hills

Enjoying an elevated, peaceful, rural position, surrounded by fields with stunning views across to The Blackdown Hills, The Flying Fish is just 5 mins from the A303 and 10 mins from the M5, making it very accessible from all over the country.

Run by husband and wife team, Buddy & Kate and their staff, will work with you to create the perfect wedding, offering a range of packages of what you’d like on the day.
We specialise in relaxed, informal weddings and work closely with you to help you create the wedding you want, be it a traditional country affair with straw bales and a tractor or a Caribbean theme with a steel band and delicious home-made Rum Punch… the barn is a blank canvas for you to make your own.

We offer a variety of food options including sumptuous cold buffets, hot buffets, hog roasts and Caribbean food or you can hire the barn on a ‘dry hire’ basis and use your own caterer if you prefer.
