Situated in the heart of Dorset, Longthorns is one of the most unique wedding venues in the area.

Longthorns Farm opened in 2009 as a campsite and a working farm, as a result of the dedication of Sally and Mark, who loved living in the country. On the farm was an old dairy parlour, which after a long process was given planning permission to be converted into what is now The Parlour, a beautifully rustic Dorset wedding & event venue, preserved in the old traditional style. Longthorns offers a quiet retreat for weddings with all the comfort they should bring…as well as some cute-as-anything alpacas!

Dorset farm wedding venue The waiting game

The Parlour is a rustic, newly renovated old dairy parlour, which brings the traditional and contemporary together in one of the most diverse stretches of Dorset countryside.

Longthorns Farm stands on 50 acres of woodlands and fields, creating amazing backdrops for all of your wedding photographs.

The Parlour and marquee create the perfect setting for the reception, complete with wedding arch and fully licensed bar, tastefully decorated to suit every occasion.

Longthorns is close to the Jurassic coast and minutes from Poole and Bournemouth.
