Blank Canvas / Diy Events at Gravel Farm

Create your very own 'Wild' Celebration

Close to London and Cambridge, Gravel Farm offers you exclusive use of our 12-acre estate and luxurious onsite accommodation sleeping 18 (with opportunities for camping and glamping) for your unique multi day, festival or weekend wedding, milestone birthday party or corporate event. 

Just four miles south of Ely and tucked alongside the River Great Ouse (from which you can launch a canoe, paddleboard etc), Gravel Farm enjoys an enviable position not only in terms of location - being close to Cambridge and London - but also in terms of its nature-rich wood, farm and grassland surroundings; the perfect place to enjoy modern day comforts with an unmistakably 'wild' charm and lots of fabulous photography location opportunities.   

Dance under big Fenland Skies..

Once you have chosen from one of our 'blank canvas' locations, either beside our pond or within our grassland paddock, you can then set about creating your own event - whether it's a small tropical-themed 40th, a large rustic rural wedding or a water-based team-building event, you are free to choose what you wish, how you wish.  We are not a licensed wedding venue so you will need to do the legal bit elsewhere, but we are more than happy for you to have a humanist ceremony here on your big day. 

What's included:

  • Four day rental of our 'outdoor space' where you hold your event, to include the erection and dismantling of any hired marquees

  • Full and exclusive use of our four on-site properties for 2 nights  (sleeping 18)

  • A space for a wedding or civil ceremony (we're not licensed yet)

  • 'Bring your own' camping or glampsite

  • Access onto the river for paddleboarding, canoeing or wild swimming

  • Flexibility on chosen suppliers & no corkage

  • Services and security 

  • Two hours consultation to help you envisage your celebration and get your event 'started'
