The wooden beams and Little House On The Prairie vibe mean the rustic Gate Street Barn is perfect for a fairy-tale, candlelit reception. Built from oak trees blown down in the 1987 hurricane, the barn has breathtaking views of the rolling Surrey Hills, interrupted only by a cow or two from the organic farm next door.
