Full Description
Dovecote Barn is a Grade II listed building, full of character and charm with exposed brickwork and oak beams. Formerly known as Park Corner Barn, it dates back from the 18th Century and was part of the Adderbury House estate, built by the Duke of Argyll. Dovecote Barn today has been tastefully restored and is licenced for civil weddings, partnership ceremonies and the renewal of vows and aims to provide a perfect setting for your ceremony. Bo Peep Farm is a family run business allowing us to offer a uniquely personal service, working closely with you and your family to ensure every detail is as perfect as you wish it to be. As well as a memorable ceremony, Dovecote Barn also offers an intimate reception for gatherings of 100 or less. After the event, you and your guests can retire to the beautiful courtyard for a welcome drink while we create the perfect scene for your wedding breakfast. On concluding the meal, allow us to reconfigure the barn once more giving you the space you need to extend the celebrations into the night! If you wish to include evening guests then the barn can fit a total of 140 including your day guests. Here at Dovecote Events we also have a spectacular giant two-hat tipi. Perfect for those seeking something a little different and after that festival-style wedding. The tipi can accommodate a maximum of 120 for your wedding breakfast and a maximum of 150 for your evening reception. For larger gatherings Dovecote Events can also provide a wedding marquee with panoramic views stretching of Adderbury - you won't want to miss the sunset either! We are limited only by your imagination!

Anyone who uses your venue is in for a treat.
We just want to say the hugest possible thank you for providing us with such an amazing experience on Saturday. I'm finding it hard to put into words how impressed everyone was with your venue, staff, food, drinks...the list goes on. It's a really difficult thing to achieve, and you guys seem to do it naturally and effortlessly because you genuinely love and enjoy the whole experience. There is no sense of pressure or rush, every single person who needed to contact you did so with ease and it was all just a lovely thing from start to finish. Anyone who uses your venue is in for a treat, you really do it all so well. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for just the most cracking time ever.

I knew it was something special, and special it truly was.
It's been two weeks since we married at Dovecote Barn and we haven't stopped talking about it! We want to say a HUGE thank you to Mel, Matt, Nicky, Tom and the rest of your team for being absolutely outstanding throughout the whole run up to and on our wedding day. I remember visiting your wedding fair this time last year, the minute we were shown around the venue, I knew it was something special & special it truly was. To arranging all the appointments, planning, food tasting and final arrangements, you made us both feel so at ease knowing it was all in hand. Although the rain came to say hello to us on our big day, the staff looked after us and all our guests amazingly. Our guests continue to tell us just how organised the day was, polite and friendly all the staff were, how delicious the food was (hats off to the chef!) and just how stunning the venue is! We cannot thank you guys enough and will continue to recommend you to other bride and grooms to be!
