We began by repointing the wholeback wall of the barn. For some years some of the granite stones have been heldtogether by a family of snails and some loose and cracked mortar! When ourlovely contractor came to start the work on the wall, it was a little worsethan we had originally anticipated. However, between storms, high winds, and temperaturesplummeting, he has battled on and the lime pointing now looks beautiful!
Next,we have begun to extend the bridge over the stream and make it safer for vehiclesto travel by the yearling barn. It has been an “interesting” experience to seehow the automatic pilot on new cars refuse to move if the satellite picturetells them that they do not have at least 2ft of roadway all around the car! Weare hoping to have this completed by the New Year! We have already helped tomake the stream less prone to flooding by channelling the water through a verylarge pipe and have also made the crossroads of the stream on the bridle pathless hazardous by relaying the pieces of granite, so they are flatter andfirmer.
The wall behind our Butchery& Farm Shop holds the soil of the Pig fields on the hill. In 2019, duringextremely heavy rains the water rushed down from the fields and managed to pusha granite stone so hard that it cut through the main electric cable to ourbuildings. Although it was fixed, we realised that the wall was both unstableand unsafe for any contractors to access the back of the buildings. Obviously,it was impossible to have this work done in 2020 and 2021 during the pandemicbut we have now been able to start construction works and make it safe for thenext 150 years!
We’re currently awaiting quotesfrom contractors regarding the restoration of the bridal suite with a smallextension which we are looking forward to getting going! You might well ask uswhy we are having a bridal suite when have so fervently refused to have anyaccommodation on site. We have always believed that the small businesses aroundus with Camping, Holiday lets and B&B’s, should share in us bringing peopleinto the community but many of our couples have felt that getting ready hereand returning to a bridal suite on site would make us a more attractiveproposition to have their wedding here.

Nestled in the heart of Cornwall, Chypraze Wedding Barn is a rustic gem that seamlessly blends tradition with modern comforts. It's the kind of place where you can almost hear the whispers of centuries gone by, and yet, it's equipped with all the conveniences you need for a perfect wedding day.
Our couples can now get married close to the sea, with the sound of crashing Atlantic waves, but still within easy access to the venue facilities nearby. Our new outside celebration area puts you amongst the fields of the Cornish countryside and the mysteries of the past.

With the 2022 wedding season now officially over we begin the monumental task of cleaning and improving areas in and around the Barn.
Chypraze Farm has been in the family for 4 generations and was originally a dairy farm. However, we now rear saddleback pigs and a small beef herd of Highlanders and Hereford cattle. We also have our own butchery and sell our meat at local farmers markets in Penzance, St. Erth, Truro, Falmouth and Pendeen.
