When travelling along Partridge Lane, look out for an old-fashioned plough on a log. This is located next to our farm sign, and is almost directly opposite the beginning of Burnt Oak Lane.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
An extraordinary medieval banquet held at Christmas time, with long tables laden with a feast fit for royalty. All beneath the vast oak structure of Gildings Barn, illuminated by twinkling fairy lights. It was just spectacular and will be remembered for ever by everyone who experienced it. An incredible credit to the highly talented and artistic family members of the bride and groom.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
