Welcome to The Old Threshing Barn

Your perfect wedding reception or event venue

A truly memorable rustic location for small country wedding receptions, family occasions and corporate events in South Devon between Dartmouth and Salcombe.

The Old Threshing Barn

Robin & Veronica have lovingly restored Beeson Farm over many years, creating beautiful cottages and now a fantastic rustic barn to provide a wonderful location for country weddings and family celebrations.

This large two storey traditional Victorian barn has been carefully restored and converted into a sustainable, eco friendly and flexible events and wedding venue.

The Old Threshing Barn is full of rural charm and has a lovely position situated in a traditional Devon Farm courtyard located in a peaceful rural valley less than a mile from the sea in the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The barn may be booked for exclusive use by your party or group in the Spring, Autumn or Winter months outside of Christmas, New Year, Easter & Whitsun.

WOW!! What a fantastic place. We chose the venue as it has everything – beautiful countryside (it’s in an AONB), stunning beaches and lovely ensuite cottage accommodation at the farm, great B&Bs in the local area and even nearby camping for the adventurous !
