New weddings and events venue, Valleyside Barn based in Bickleigh, will host a local food and drinks fair to officially launch their opening. Sixteen local food and drinks producers will attend the daytime event on Sunday 26th September. Visitors will be able to sample sweet and savoury delicacies including oysters, smoked fish, dim sum and a range of ales, lager, cider, gin and wine from across the region.
Emma Wright, Partner of Valleyside Barn & Escapes said, “We’re very excited to officially open our newly converted barn. The food and drinks fair is an opportunity for anyone to come and see this fantastic new space and also spend some time sampling and enjoying some delicious local food and drinks.”
Food stalls include: Blakewell smoked fish, West Country Dim Sum, a BBQ with meat supplied by Exe Valley Farm shop, vegan food truck Hedgerow Hound, Hat-a-Cakes and ice cream from Icicle Tricycle.
Drinks stalls include: Dartmoor Coffee, Deck Chair Gin, Exe Valley Brewery, Hanlons Brewery, Papillon Gin, Powderkeg Beer, Rull Orchard cider, Utopian Brewing and wine tasting by Grape & Grain Wine Merchants.
The fair will be open from 11am – 4pm with £4 entry for adults (children are free) in exchange for a drinks voucher.
The transformation of the old timber outbuilding to a rustic, substantial barn has taken around two years. Matt Wright, Partner of Valleyside Barn & Escapes said, “A lot of engineering has gone into the conversion but we’ve successfully kept the authenticity of the barn whilst also significantly modernising it at the same time.”
There are already weddings booked for 2022 and, whilst it is envisaged the barn will mainly be used for this purpose, the space lends itself to a host of other uses including corporate events and even as a filming location along with the wider outbuilding complex.
Car parking on-site.
