On the Farm

What a busy spring it’s been! Between building work on the farm and our first few weddings of the year, we’ve barely paused to catch our breath! Here’s all the latest new from Northside Farm…

New Buildings and Beautiful Spaces


Since our winter update, we’ve completed the Gin Gang and hosted our first ceremony within the new space (pictured above). We’re thrilled with the renovation and we can’t wait to see more couples make their vows in this historic building.

We’ve also finished our brand new Fairytale Cottages and welcomed our first guests. They’re proving very popular already and we love seeing people enjoy this new addition to the farm. Bringing the cottages to life was a huge team effort – even our little Lockeys were in on the action, helping to paint and build furniture.

Our new dressing room is another huge hit. It’s been such a joy to hear people laughing and chatting as they get ready.

Spring Open Day and an Anniversary

We had our first open day of the year in April. As ever, it was lovely to welcome so many loved-up couples to the farm – their enthusiasm is contagious! It’s always fun to see people fizzing with excitement as they start their wedding planning journey with us.

In May, we celebrated 11 years since Northside Farm launched as a glamping site and 3 years since we opened the barn for our wedding. What an adventure we’ve had since then!

Solar Panels and Other Exciting Projects

Our solar panels are finally up and working. We feel great about producing some of our own electricity and doing our bit for the environment.

I’ve also started writing a monthly column in a regional business magazine and we’re currently working on a project with Radio 4. You’ll have to wait until my next update to hear all about it!

Now all the winter works are complete, we’re preparing for the busy summer season. We can’t wait to host more wonderful weddings!

With love from,

Olivia, Ralph, and the Northside Farm family x
