Oh my...we are both so totally delighted with how the day went. We had just the most amazing time and cannot imagine a more perfect day. Everyone commented on the gorgeous setting...thank you both from the bottom of our hearts….. start planning to do it all again in a few years time - bring back the kids and all. With love Kristal & Simon, May

.... so many happy memories ... Many, many thanks - we're really happy that we seem to have done justice to your beautiful barn. Jenny & Michael, September

... We’re still on a high ... Everything (bar the weather!) was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have asked for a better day .... Adam & Becky, September



Ceremonies and receptions

After nearly 30 years of hosting large weddings, we are no longer licensed for civil ceremonies but continue to welcome a limited number of secular and humanist ceremonies and hand-fastings (ie non-religious, non-legal), and small wedding receptions which may complement your legal wedding elsewhere - either at the local church, registry office or abroad. Organise your own day, decorate the barn and create your very own personal order of service with your favourite readings, poetry and music. Our maximum number for wedding guests is now 80.

Contact the local registrar to check availability for a certain date at the local Registry Office or contact Revd Carol Mansell as the priest in charge of our local benefice of five churches - 01449 744484.


…a perfect occasion. Everyone loved the location – the epitome of beautiful England on a glorious day. And all the small (and large) touches that made it seem so effortlessly organized. It was exactly as we had hoped for. Nicky & Neil, July

... such a wonderful day! It couldn't have been more perfect - you were so hospitable, the barn, house and garden beautiful ....! We couldn't think of anything that could have gone better - in fact I can't say thank-you enough; we had the best possible day and are so grateful to you! Rob & Sue, September
