Our bluebell woodland is the perfect space for a children's birthday party or a relaxed anniversary celebration, you can create your event your way sourcing and using your own suppliers.
We have plenty of space and if you need a little help we can put you in contact with some of our friends who we love to work with. From time to time we have our own events and we invite you to join us.
Longton Wood is a part of our family-run farm. In fact, we built the venue in 2016 for my own wedding, a real family effort with everyone pulling together to help create our (my!) Pinterest dream. This little piece of our family farm really was transformed and built with love.
Our farmland surrounds the woodland. As the year progresses there will be an array of crops and animals in the fields surrounding the woodland. Within the woodland we have ancient trees with a mixture of deciduous and coniferous varieties. In springtime, throughout the woodland we have a carpet of bluebells usually appearing in April and May.
Within our clearings we have a grass meadow as well as a valley with changing crop rotation. This provides an array of photo opportunities for you and your photographer to capture.
If you would like to come and visit the venue or have any further questions please, send us an email.
Longton Wood Reviews
From the moment that we first met Jenny and visited Longton Wood in September 2016 we knew that it was going to have to be our chosen venue for our wedding reception. From that point forward we had the best 10 months preparing and organising the festivities. This unique venue allows you to be as creative as you like with the layout with plenty of fun things to prepare and decorate. With very few limitations in place, we were also able to hire any suppliers we liked, but still, we received plenty of help and advice from Jenny to help us in areas that we didn't have much knowledge off. From camping to a creperie stand, we felt that this venue provided us with the platform to have everything and more to make it a unique and special occasion. Longton Wood is a truly magical place and we highly recommend it. Thank you Longton Wood and Jenny! xxx~ Emily Lesourd
Beautiful venue, exactly what we wanted ~ Lauren Homewood
Longton woods is truly a magical place for a wedding or event. We look at a few woodland wedding venues and loved Longton the most, mainly due to the little touches and the beautiful woodland surrounding the green opening. Jenny worked hard on getting the ceremony area ready for my daughters big day. They had a relaxed wedding blessing followed by a picnic-style lunch, barn dancing followed by a BBQ and then an acoustic guitarist with more dancing and marshmallows around the fire pit. Some guests camped which was great. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The only extra thing we needed to think about was a security company which gave us peace of mind. Highly recommend Longton Wood~ Amanda White
I had my wedding at Longton Wood on Saturday 10th August (2019). The venue is absolutely beautiful and all our guests commented on how gorgeous the surroundings were.The venue owner, Jennifer, was fantastic! We had some problems with our marquee when we were setting up and Jennifer was so helpful; a lovely lady!If we hadn’t found Longton Wood, our wedding wouldn’t have been half as incredible as it was.Beth x~ Beth Peace
