The Stretch Tent
Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Ribble Valley, at the edge of Mrs Dowsons Farm, our Stretch Tent provides the perfect setting to celebrate your wedding day with your nearest and dearest.
Whether you are looking to create the ultimate festival vibe or simply invite loved ones to celebrate with you in a rustic outdoor setting, our versatile space is the perfect option!
The unforgettable rural location is surrounded by acres of natural pastures, meadows and of course hundreds of our most incredibly friendly farm animals.
"Our vision become reality! It truly was the best wedding reception"
Make it your own
With hand-crafted tables and benches and a fully-stocked, licensed bar, we present to you the epitome of rustic charm.
Our Stretch Tent is illuminated with soft festoon lights, giving an ambient glow that compliments the natural daylight which floods through panoramic windows on every side.
At night, the atmosphere changes, providing the perfect backdrop for celebrating in style!
We warmly welcome you to capture the moments of walking hand-in-hand along the festoon-lit walkway, relaxing on haybales or toasting marshmallows around the firepit.
At Mrs Dowson, we pride ourselves on assisting you with planning a truly unique experience. Our dedicated, experienced Wedding Co-ordinator will be with you every step of the way, tailoring everything to your individual taste, specific requirements and budget.
We specialise in bespoke weddings to ensure your wedding remains individually yours with meticulous attention to detail.
It's our job to make your dream come true!
