We work together as a team to provide you with impeccable service, deliciously fresh food and, of course, memories to last a lifetime. Nothing is too much trouble and we look forward to working with you to help you create your perfect day.

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

Our barn venue is registered for civil ceremonies, meaning you can have the convenience of ceremony and reception all in one place. Our barn is fully self-contained with its own bar, rest-rooms and garden.

Additionally, we have 8 large en-suite rooms (2 accessible) to accommodate you and your guests (and can recommend additional accommodation nearby) as well as a charming country pub, The Flying Fish, with its own garden and conservatory, on site, giving you and your guests options throughout the day.
