When you visit us, see if your heart skips a beat. When you talk to us, see if you feel that wonderful flutter of butterflies. If The Cow Shed is truly right for you, if we’re ‘the one’, you’ll know.
With a team working from the heart, we want you to feel like this venue is a home away from home. From the moment you step into our courtyard to saying ‘I do’, before leading up to the moment we finally say our goodbyes, we want to make sure your wedding is truly special.
Sarah, owner of The Cow Shed, moved to Freathy Farmhouse to fulfil her dream of running a Cornish B&B. In true romantic style, Freathy Farmhouse chose Sarah, rather than the other way around.
The farmhouse was last on her list of countless properties she’d viewed in search of living her dream in Cornwall. Sarah admits she didn’t even want to go inside, believing it was not what she was looking for. But when she took her first step through the front door, she soon realised she was ‘home’. Later, when she discovered the barn made the perfect venue for rustic weddings, The Cow Shed Weddings was born.
Jeremy joined Freathy Farmhouse a few years later, adding his creative footprint to match Sarah’s vision to create the rare and exquisite venue it’s become today. They both wanted to offer something that had a heart, rather than develop a business for the sake of making profit. Sarah’s vision was inspired from traditional weddings, where families could come together to arrange a wedding in the village hall, with hay bale seating and bunting hung from the ceiling.
The initial ventures of Freathy Farmhouse were expanded, and the grounds were transformed into a complete onsite exclusive wedding venue, with runaway elopement weddings and intimate rustic ceremonies held here. The venue continues to grow and now hosts weddings with up to 80 treasured guests.
