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!

“I would just like to say a massive thank you to you and your team for giving us our beautiful covid wedding ceremony! You were the only venue from the start that would let us book a provisional wedding date and supported us throughout all the changes.

“Our day was like a fairy tale and I am still overwhelmed with joy as it was so perfect in every way. Thank you so much for everything you and your team did for us and allowing us to use you beautiful venue.”

Jacqui & Chris, August 2020

“Thank you so much for helping us making this day so special for us and our guests. We had a fabulous experience. I can’t thank enough all the staff helping us to make this day run so smoothly.

“Chilli Barn offers unbelievable (!!!) tasty food, great service and they are very understanding and accommodating every sort of newlyweds requirements. We asked for 100% vegan catering and what we got blew us and our guests away – we have received so many compliments about the food.

“We loved the authenticity of the Barn, the location (fields and cows), beautiful scenery around and the barn itself. Everything about the Barn is top quality. Thank you so much for helping us making this day so special for us and our guests.”

Marysia and Matt, May 2019
