Full Description
Our venue fee varies from £2,000 to £4,250 depending on the time of year for a Saturday wedding. This price includes use of the barn with heaters and toilets as well as the field next to the barn, 5 bed & breakfast rooms for the night of your wedding, a field for camping if any of your guests would like to and an option for a licensed bar. Whilst in the week we now hold small weddings, 30 guests or less during the winter whilst we can cater for up to 50 guests in the summer. Prices start from £300 for a ceremony only and go up to £1,000 depending on how many guests and how long you want to hire the space for. Depending on the style of wedding you choose other things will need to be hired in. I can give you contact details for everything you need. We now have three different sites licensed for marriage or civil ceremonies, including our gazebo by the lake. If you would like to use St Bartholomews Church at Furtho for a blessing you would need to contact Rev Diane Whittaker in Potterspury on 01908 542043, I believe the charges for the Church are £500 (£200 for the parish and £300 for the Church Conservation Trust who own the Church). We also will only hold one event during a weekend so you can have access to the site from the Thursday before your wedding to set up.

What an amazing venue
We had such an amazing wedding and the owners where so helpful for us and letting you get into a venue a few days earlier, really took the pressure of getting everything ready :) Most amazing day ever!! Highly recommend x

The perfect wedding venue
The perfect wedding venue. A slice of rural beauty tucked away off the A5. Linda and Robin provided us with a blank canvas to create the wedding exactly how we wanted it. They were so helpful and approachable every step of the way and their experience of hosting events was invaluable. Our wedding photographers commented on just how picturesque the venue is. Whether it’s the barn itself, the church, the dovecote, the lake or the rolling fields filled with sheep. There are photo opportunities everywhere you look. The farmhouse provides great accommodation, and for other guests there are plenty of hotels in nearby Stony Stratford. We cannot recommend Furtho Manor Farm enough. Thank you to Linda and Robin for providing us with the best place in which we had the best day of our lives. Charlie and Stacey x

Perfect in every way
This was the first venue we viewed and. We knew from the minute we drove down the picturesque path next to fields of lambs and then saw the blank canvas barn, being able to make it our own, not to mention the quaint chapel, Lake and gazebo, that we had to have it. The day was perfect, we dressed with fairy lights draping and bunting with help of Mcgees and added garden games and sweet cart thanks to Applewood entertainment and added other finishing touches like rustic Love letters next to dance floor and photo booth both hired from 1st class photography who. Also carried out the wonderful photography. Linda and Robin went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. Our guests complimented the venue endlessly throughout the day, not to mention the amazing food, from canopies, wedding breakfast and smoke shack all provided by Waterfall catering, namely Christopher Binks . To sum it up it was the most idyllic, relaxed and happiest day of our lives and Furtho played one of the biggest parts in this so thank you! X

Perfect venue, perfect location, no two weddings the same.
What a perfect place for a wedding! We had the most amazing day and the site is quite literally a blank canvass- no two weddings are the same. Linda and Robin were great, being really accommodating and understanding and quite a few of our guests have asked for details about the venue as they're considering having their own wedding there. Such a perfect day, in such a perfect place- you definitely won't regret having your wedding here.

Amazing venue would recommend
Perfect venue regardless of the weather. Fortunately for us the rain stopped before our ceremony but they couldn't do enough to help us make a decision beforehand so arrangements could be made last minute if necessary. We stayed the night before and ate out locally, breakfast was provided on the morning of the ceremony and it was delicious. We would definitely recommend furtho for making our day so special

Furtho is beautiful canvas
When looking for venues, nowhere really struck us like the character of Furtho. It allows you to really have the wedding of your dreams in such a stunning setting with a little black book of suppliers and plenty of suggestions to hand. Linda and Robin work so hard all your round to keep this venue beautiful, and it doesn't go unnoticed. We had a tipi wedding at Furtho manor, and it really was nothing short of magical. To be able to have the freedom to tailor our day around the Farm, time to set the venue up from Wednesday and flexibility in choice of suppliers was so ideal for us. Furtho is a must have if you want a beautiful canvas to bring all your ideas alive. If we could do it all again, we would!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

I love the fact that every wedding at Furtho is unique and people can create there own day. Only one wedding a weekend takes place at Furtho so you can have the barn from the Thursday before your wedding so you have lots of time to set up.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan before hand so on the day you can relax enjoy your day. Oh yes and don't over cater for food.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

This is just too hard to answer - I love each wedding is different at Furtho and it just has to be how the couple want it. Some spend ages doing all the little touches others have it very simple. I do not think one is better than the other just depends what you prefer.

Rustic barn, View (Overlooking St Bartholomews Church and Dovecote as well as the Lake), Space, Quiet, Exclusive (it is all yours - no other event will take place round the corner)

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Photos in front of the Farmhouse, next to Furtho Dovecote, outside St Bartholomew's Church , Furtho, during the summer photo's in the corn or grass field, photo's down the farm drive or photos by the lake. It is your choice !

If I had I promise I would not say .......................

What’s your favourite canapé?

Anything from lovely Devine Betties

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Nestled in the middle of our Farm is St Bartholomews, Church. This little gem is now looked after very well by the Church Conservation Trust and is available for a limited number of blessings each year.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

In lots of our reviews Furtho is called a hidden gem and couples like that nothing is too much trouble for us.
