The most incredible wedding day I could have imagined! From start to finish it was seamless. The staff are wonderful and are genuinely happy to meet every couples/guests needs. Nothing is too much trouble and the tight knit, family run business they have is worth so much more than they have been credited. Winners of 'Wedding Venue Of The Year...

We are professional wedding photographers and videographers, so this is high praise indeed! From the moment we arrived we were very warmly welcomed and kept informed of the proceedings by a member of staff constantly. From our point of view, the gardens and scenery for pretty backdrops are ideal and the old barn itself is very beautifully lit. The food...

Here for my sisters wedding. We arrived 2 days before the wedding to drop off all the decorations. The staff were fantastic - very thorough. Went through how we wanted everything set up. Took lots of notes. On arrival on the wedding day, staff took great care of us. Lots of advice on how to help the day run smoothly....

What a fantastic venue, the attention to detail is excellent by the staff. The whole day is so well organised and has left no doubt in my mind how professional the experience is. Team Bride and Team Groom put the marrying couple totally at ease giving them the sequence of events through the ceremony so everything flows. Nothing is too...

Had my daughter (& now) son in laws wedding there yesterday. It is the perfect venue. The facilities are excellent. The outside ceremony area is beautiful, if however you have bad weather it is easy to transfer everything inside with minimum disruption. The sound system is brilliant & there aren't any 'dead spots' at all around the grounds. There is...
