Casterley Barn in Rushall, near Pewsey, is celebrating its first year in business.
Not only has it had “glowing feedback” and shown excellent service to all of the wedding couples it has hosted in its first wedding season; it is now set to be one of Wiltshire’s premium locations for meetings, events and conferences with a full team of experts on hand to ensure your meeting or conference is precision planned with a creative flair.
Set on a running organic farm, Casterley Barn offers a unique, sustainably designed venue with stylish features and stunning views of the surrounding countryside. It can accommodate 150 guests for a seated dinner or conference with 18 in the cosy mezzanine with wood burning stove. Casterley exemplifies a modern events venue built using eco-friendly techniques and running entirely ‘off grid’, generating much of its energy through the use of solar power and a biomass boiler.
One of the key features of the barn is its Environmental credentials:
- Energy efficient and super insulated
- Solar powered
- Sustainable catering using locally sourced produce
- A strict reuse and recycle scheme
- Suppliers chosen for their green business practices
As part of Rushall Organics, a working organic farm in its 5th generation, the ‘Green Journey’ started when the Wookey family looked at diversification of the land. Rachel Davies – Venue Director said: “Sustainability has always been at the heart of what we do at Rushall, so naturally it was on our mind when we built the barn. We wanted to build a space with little impact on the environment and that celebrated the incredible views and surrounding countryside. We are committed to promoting sustainability in our practices whilst still giving our clients an exceptional service for their events.”
“As the barn and its business grows we are dedicated to minimising the impact of our operations and are in the process of launching a new programme of all green initiatives for 2019.”
So as Casterley launches into its second year, it seems there are exciting times ahead for this unique venue and its innovative team. Watch this space!
