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

Chilli Barn on the Chevin overlooking Wharfedale was lovingly converted in 2014 as an intimate wedding venue and a special place for celebrations and gatherings of all kinds. Part of the family farm for six generations, the Barn offers a charming, relaxed atmosphere in a spacious rural setting which allows the use of marquees, yurts and tipis and has good transport links. Added to that, our efficient, friendly service and delicious vegetarian catering will make memories of your day at Chilli Barn ones to treasure.

Chilli Barn can currently hold wedding ceremonies with a maximum 13 guests following COVID-secure guidelines and procedures agreed with Leeds City Council Registrars. Receptions can be for up to 15 people in total, with precautions similar to those for restaurants. This is also in accordance with local restrictions in the Leeds area.

The Barn has full fibre broadband with upload speeds around 20Mbps enabling live streaming of ceremonies in HD. We have good availability this autumn and winter as most of our bookings have postponed. If you want a small but intimate and lovely wedding, please get in touch by calling 01943 609092 or using the website contact form.

Looking ahead to 2021, Chilli Barn  is fully booked May-September but availability is good out of season and for 2022. We are offering show rounds in person and also using FaceTime and guided virtual tours.

“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
