Here at The Gathering Fields we can help you arrange your bespoke wedding or handfasting. The barn is ideal for intimate celebrations . We have beautiful views and an outside space for additional marquee if required. We like to encourage low environmental waste during your stay with us, where we love to use wild flowers, reusable items and certainly encourage you planting a tree as part of your ceremony. We advise small ceremonies but have plenty of outdoor space for family and friends to explore. To enquire about your wedding please send an email and prebook your visit to come and look around the space.

The Gathering Fields Retreat is situated on a working farm in the Trough of Bowland near Lancaster and only an hour from Manchester and the Lake District. The space offers an indoor barn and an outdoor space for holistic and alternative retreats. The venue is also ideal for family and small group holidays as it is surrounded by rolling fells, wide open countryside and 9 acres of wild flower gardens and allotments which also acts as an outdoor classroom. Working closely with third sector groups, local charities and small community groups, the Gathering Fields attempts to bridge the gap between urban and rural living.

Our Heart opening fields and magical woodlands make a gentle space to retreat away from a busy life. The Gathering Fields welcomes both individuals and organisations to hire our space and can also provide a creative and bespoke range of workshops, Flower Essence's, Yoga Retreats, Creative Retreats, Family camping, Ayurveda, Permaculture, Sound Healing, Crafts such as Pottery, Wood Carving and Wool Weaving. Our 8 bed bunk house is perfect for anyone wanting to access the outdoor life. We work together with groups of like-minded people we aim to help people restore balance and deepen their connection with self, children, family, others and the earth.

Open since May 2016 The Gathering Fields has been an ongoing project for the past 8 years and we are now able to have our dream turn into reality.

To book our venue for a retreat, family camping holiday, workshop or to enquire about hiring the space please send an email to info@northernapproach.co.uk.
