They have a great passion for the beautiful Wiltshire countryside and want you to have the most memorable experience at this magical location. With daughter Rachel managing Casterley Barn, you can rest assured that you are in good hands.
Rachel Davies (nee Wookey) is Director of Events at Casterley Barn and grew up on the Rushall Organics Estate. She honed her skills in the London events market before returning home to set up Casterley Barn with her family.
Rachel's warm personality and calm demeanour make hosting events at Casterley Barn easy and enjoyable. With her years of industry experience accompanied by a meticulous attention to detail, you can relax in the knowledge that every element of your event will be perfectly coordinated.
In addition to managing Casterley Barn, Rachel also offers event planning and management services -from full event concept design and management to just a few extra hours of support.
A key element of the Rushall Organics ethos is sustainability and Casterley Barn is no exception. We generate our own electricity through roof-mounted solar panels feeding a battery array, while the under-floor and water heating is provided by an on-site biomass boiler.
With huge front aspect windows and vaulted ceiling, it has been designed to sit in harmony with the natural environment and to showcase the stunning simplicity of the surrounding countryside.
With a licensed bar stocked with organic wines and local ales, and a fully equipped kitchen, Casterley Barn is the ideal venue to fulfil all your event requirements.
Rushall Organic Farm
Casterley Barn is part of the Rushall Organics Estate, an organic farm that has been run by the Wookey family for four generations. With initial conversion to organic starting in 1970, the farm was one of the very first to become organic in the country.
The core principles of the farm - sustainability, legacy and integrity - have been consistently carried through the development of Casterley Barn and form the core of all the diverse activities at Rushall.
