Plans approved for new wedding venue near Kincardine
A new wedding venue has been given the go-ahead.
The Walled Garden at Righead Farm, Kincardine, has been granted permission by Fife Council to create a wedding and events venue in addition to its coffee shop, which already operates at the property.
The existing coffee shop would double up as a drinks reception area during wedding functions.
Planning permission was previously granted to create a new barn venue room in 2017.
Owner, Anne Crawford, wrote in a statement: “Due to the present economic climate and spiralling costs involved, and more importantly the new barn overpowering the garden area instead of complimenting the space, the existing barn offers a more sustainable and complimentary events space.”
She said that the venue had already received 96 enquiries, with several already booked for 2020 and 2021.
She added: “Due to an absence of these types of facilities in the surrounding areas, we are currently getting requests from Edinburgh, Glasgow and areas in-between.
“This clearly showcases Fife, and West Fife, not only for tourism but also as a place to do business.”
The business was also short listed for the Business Diversification category in the Scottish Rural Business Awards in 2017.
