Full Description
When it comes to weddings, we know that there is no 'one size to fit all' package. Whether you are looking for a venue for your wedding reception, civil ceremony or both, we are sure to have something to suit you. For a Saturday wedding, the Barn is available from 9am on Friday until midday on Sunday. For a Tuesday wedding, for example, the Barn is available from 2pm on Monday until midday on Wednesday. Charges for a weekend include bank holidays. A booking fee of £750 is required to confirm a booking and the balance is due eight weeks prior to the wedding date. No corkage! A huge saving!

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Bridget
Our couples are very important to us and we look after them from the minute they book until the end of their wedding day - they are welcome to come and see the Barn as many times as they like, or, they can call and chat to ask as many questions as they like! We never mind. We want them to have a wonderful experience in planning their wedding.
