Boutique Barn Weddings

Special Celebrations & Events


Welcome to Chilli Barn, a unique venue set in the Yorkshire Dales

Chilli Barn is an intimate wedding venue in Otley, West Yorkshire,
just on the edge of Chevin Forest Park, overlooking Lower Wharfedale. 

The barn was lovingly converted by us in 2014 to create a dreamy wedding venue and a special place for
celebrations and gatherings of all kinds. It is a bright and airy two-floor space with lots of character –
the perfect backdrop for rustic country weddings. 

Part of the family farm for six generations, Chilli Barn offers a charming, relaxed atmosphere in
a dramatic rural setting bordered by meadows and forest. The grounds allow the use of marquees,
yurts and tipis and the location has good transport links and accommodation nearby. 

Added to that, our efficient, friendly service and delicious catering will make
memories of your day at Chilli Barn ones to treasure. 

Our current availability: 2022 limited, 2023 good.

We are very proud to be winners of Bridebook’s County Champion 2022, and the Hitched – Best Barn Weddings 2022 Awards.
Thank you to all our super couples for your kind words and support!

Stephen & Rosie – October 2021

“Genuinely the best day of our lives.

The most perfect venue surrounded by our family and friends. Outstanding venue for a ceremony and amazing evening reception. Natalie and the Chilli Barn team offer an endless amount of support and we could not have asked for a more perfect setting for the best day of our lives. We seriously couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Rosie and I will cherish 6/10/21 forever and a big part of that Is down to how you guys made us feel so at ease with everything. Can we do it again please?”

Ruth & Leanne – June 2021

“We chose Chilli Barn because the location meant a lot to us, and the barn itself just speaks for itself. It’s rare to find a venue where you look at it and think ‘wow, this actually doesn’t need much else’ because it’s just so effortlessly perfect!! We also fell in love with the wedding planning team instantly – they went above and beyond! The Chilli Barn team always made us feel so safe and like nothing was too much trouble.”
