The Cow Shed, a family run atmospheric farm steading, opened its doors as a versatile wedding space in January 2016. Located just outside Crail, a historic fishing village in the pretty East Neuk of Fife (near St Andrews), the exclusive use venue offers sea views and plenty of rustic charm. Completely flexible in terms of décor and layout, The Cow Shed offers a characterful ‘blank canvas’ allowing couples to put their own personal stamp on the space, creating the wedding they really want.
The venue boasts three distinct spaces; The Old Cow Shed, The Steading and The Courtyard. The Old Cow Shed can seat up to 150 guests for ceremonies and is also an ideal area for an intimate drinks reception. It can host around 60 guests for a sit down meal. The Steading combines rustic exposed stone walls with a beautiful marquee canopy that can comfortably accommodate 150 guests, leaving ample space for a dance floor, band and bar area. The Courtyard with original cart shed arches and traditional farm yard doors make it the perfect spot for photographs, outdoor ceremonies and summer cocktails.
Couples can hold their ceremonies on site in any of the versatile areas or can easily access the beautiful churches dotted around the East Neuk. The picturesque churches situated in Crail are only a short walk away from The Cow Shed. For the more adventurous couples, (weather dependent) The Cow Shed boasts a fantastic spot in a nearby field overlooking the sea which can be used by those wanting to embrace the views and the wonderful sea breeze.
The Cow Shed is available all year round and allows for both mid-week and weekend weddings. The hire cost includes heating throughout, smart mobile toilets and a selection of basic lighting throughout including uplighters, fairy lights and some festoon lighting. The team will always make sure someone is on site during any wedding and throughout should help be required.
The hire costs also include three day access from 10am the day before any wedding until 3pm the following day for all weekend weddings. The Cow Shed boasts a dedicated catering space with running water, power and lighting. Electricity for this area is also included in the hire cost. If couples don’t fancy cleaning up after the wedding, a tidy up service is available so that they can focus on being with family and friends and not on the aftermath of the party.
