Celebrate Life In Every Way At Wellington Barn

Traditionally, funerals are only held in one of two places – a church or a crematorium. While there is nothing inherently wrong with these venues, for some people a church is too religious, and frankly some people just don’t enjoy the thought of a crematorium.

However there is now another option available. As a new service, Wellington Barn are now offering a funeral package, to allow families to experience an alternative to a church or crematorium funeral, you can hire the entire venue to hold your funeral service and wake in complete privacy. The ceremony rooms are large enough to accommodate a coffin, and guests can easily stay on to celebrate the deceased’s life at the wake.

This is a new and unique service from Wellington Barn, and one that we hope will help a lot of people feel at ease about their end of life arrangements.

Using a private venue such as Wellington Barn for a loved one’s funeral also provides a better alternative to a separate wake. Many people struggle to find a venue to hold a wake and end up being forced into pubs with little parking options or hotels crammed with other patrons, which leaves little room for mourning and celebrating a loved one’s life undisturbed.

Wellington Barn offer a private, secluded space for families to hold a funeral and wake, without any of the issues separate venues experience. The venue is exclusive for the entire day, food and drink can be served, and there is enough room that anyone can take a quiet moment to themselves and reflect in the stunning scenery that surrounds the barn.

Thank you so much for enabling the day to be the success it was - Cooke Family


We felt the day went really well. We wanted a celebratory atmosphere and that's certainly what we got. I think the band probably thought we were an odd bunch having such a dance off at a funeral, but it was just what we were after and it was all really well managed at your end with regards to catering and service. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you for all sorts of events really. Sue tells me you made everything very easy for her today, so thank you. - Cooper Family


Thanks again for your help, so many people mentioned to us afterwards that the Barn is a lovely venue - West Family
