Wood Lane Countryside Centre
Fantail Florist’s favourite rustic, woodland, boho, romantic styled wedding venue in Sheffield.
Wood Lane Countryside Centre is a beautiful Grade ll listed former farm set on the edge of countryside in north-west Sheffield. The venue is owned by Sheffield City Council and managed in partnership with the voluntary sector.
The farm was built in 1802 and the stone farmhouse, barns, outbuildings and gardens have been fully restored to provide beautiful accommodation for community use.
Wood Lane Countryside Centre is a two hundred year old Georgian stone built farm in Sheffield, set in the suburbs of Stannington between the Loxley and Rivelin valleys. The venue, no longer a working farm, offers unique flexibility to design your own wedding in a beautiful setting full of character. If you decide to hire the venue for your big day, you will have exclusive use of the whole site including two barns, various reception rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, a large catering kitchen, gardens and court yards. All buildings have central heating and full disabled access.
Fantail Designer Florist have a strong relationship with Wood Lane Countryside Centre offering our Brides and Grooms a vast knowledge of the venue and able to inspire you with different looks that really compliment the style of the rustic setting it has to offer. As a favourite wedding florist supplier we are only 'over the hill' and conveniently located to work closely with you and liaise to help set up the Grain Loft at Wood Lane Countryside Centre.
The Grain Loft is the old farm grain store which has been beautifully restored maintaining its original character with wooden floor, stone walls and original oak beams. It can accommodate up to 100 people (80 if dining) and has a fully licensed bar, making it an ideal room for large ceremonies, wedding breakfasts, and receptions.
The Stenton Barn can accommodate up to 30 people. It has a warm carpeted area and original oak beams and is well suited to smaller, more intimate wedding ceremonies. Fantail’s flower tip is to really look at the beams in this quaint area. We can install floral and branch arches, hanging from the beams making it a truly woodland cosy feel.
The large, scenic grounds offer you an excellent backdrop for your wedding photos and space to have a marquee or Tipi. Surrounded by large trees, the private gardens have a beautifully restored bandstand, stone seating, lawns, borders and a wild flower meadow with fruit trees. Previously having created photo shoots in this amazing outdoor space, I think lots of people overlook how beautiful these spaces can look when decorated to its full potential and with the best photographer of course.
The flexibility of the venue allows you to personalise every last detail of your big day from décor, to hiring in your own caterers. We can meet you the day before your wedding day and help set up for your ceremony and/or reception. On the day of your wedding you would enjoy the exclusivity of the venue, grounds and gardens, making it relaxing for your guests to enjoy a glass of wine on the lawns while photographs are taken.
The Grain Loft is perfect for a wedding breakfast and evening reception. There is a catering kitchen available for you or your caterers to use, as well as outdoor space in the courtyard should you wish to have a BBQ or hog roast. The large lawn to the rear of the barn is perfect for Marquees and Tipi’s. The courtyards and car park provide ample parking for your guests. The band stand, surrounded by fruit trees and beautiful flowers, is in the ideal place to have an outdoor blessing or humanist ceremony.
