Is there additional accommodation nearby?

Yes. Please ask the office for our list of nearby Hotels and B&B's.

Can we have exclusive use of the venue?

The Tythe Barn is an ‘exclusive use’ venue which means we only ever permit and host one event at a time. As a private, family run venue set on our family estate you will be the only couple getting married and the collection of barns, the grounds and our experienced team of staff will all be dedicated to looking after you and your guests for your entire event.

Are you licenced for civil ceremonies?

Yes, we are licensed for up to 150 guests and can host both indoor and outdoor ceremonies. Indoor ceremonies take place in our 14th Century stone barn beneath a canopy of fairy lights and gorgeous oak beams. Smaller and more intimate ceremonies can also take place in our Cowshed barn featuring beams, wood burners and fairy lights. We are also able to hold different types of ceremonies at the barn eg humanist

Can we have the wedding ceremony outdoors?

Our outdoor ceremonies can take place on any day of the year, as long as the weather remains warm and dry and use the stunning barn grounds with it’s wonderful oak pergola and pretty garden path.

Do you charge corkage if we supply our own wine?

If you choose to supply your own wine for the day then we do charge a corkage fee.

From what time can we get access to decorate the venue?

We would like to help you have the wedding day that you have dreamed of and fully appreciate that each couple have different ideas for how their day will be. We help you create a completely bespoke wedding day that fits in with your own plans and wishes and where we feel it may be beneficial to you both, we may step in to make a few tweaks or to offer some guidance and advice.

What time does the reception need to finish?

This does depend on which day of the week your wedding is booked but for a weekend wedding The Tythe Barn contract allows couples and their guests to party on until midnight. You can discuss having an extension to your day. Just before midnight the bar will call last orders.

Are there noise restrictions if we have a live band?

Like most venues we do have a sound limiter in place. It is set at 87.5 decibels. Please don’t panic if this sounds completely alien to you, your wedding band or DJ will know exactly what this means. It’s simply a volume limit that they can play to, and most professional entertainers will be able to tailor the volume of their act to our venue’s limit.

Is confetti allowed?

We only allow dried lavender and bubbles for those ‘confetti’ moments, both of which can be ordered through the venue.

Are candles allowed?

Included in our venue hire are our iron candlesticks and real flame oil candles however we do also allow couples to bring their own candles to the venue – as long as the flame sits below the top of the candle holder.

Is there a honeymoon or bridal suite?

The Shepherd’s Hut is our wonderful Wedding Suite tucked away on our estate and designed entirely for the couple on their wedding night. Complete with mini kitchen, en-suite, wood burner, luxury double bed and all the ‘home comforts’ you might expect for a luxurious stay, albeit in a quirky wooden hut on wheels. From June 2022 we have our luxury farmhouse accommodation which includes a beautiful bridal suite.

Customer Reviews

The response I have got from everyone who attended was the best wedding they have ever been to. From the wow factor of the barn itself, the surroundings, the nearby church, the food and drink, it comes together perfectly. We have been told that if Disney were to make the idyllic wedding venue…this would be it. The staff including Tori and Joe on the lead up and day was just incredible and they are both friendly and professional people who make your wedding day so enjoyable. We can’t thank Tythe

Tythe Barn was truly a magnificent venue to get married. We were blessed by beautiful Easter sunshine which meant we were able to take full advantage of the amazing grounds and have our ceremony outside. Our guests did not stop raving about the venue throughout the day and in the weeks after. Tori was a great help throughout the day and was always on hand to answer any questions or queries. We could not recommend Tythe Barn enough for the perfect wedding venue.

"We would like to thank The Tythe Barn for hosting our wedding day - it was everything we could have hoped for and more. From the moment we saw the venue on the website and for the open day, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. In our eyes, it really is the most beautiful barn. The venue and grounds itself are incredibly beautiful and was made even more so with the exceptional flowers by Lizzy at The Flower Story, who provided our floral displays at both the venue and the church, St Mary's, which is a stone's throw from the venue. The service we experienced from the team at The Tythe Barn was seamless from start to finish and the team went over and above to ensure it really was our perfect day. The catering provided by Absolute Taste was phenomenal. It was restaurant quality and many of our guests have since commented to say it's the most fabulous food that they've had at a wedding, and we couldn't agree more. We would like to thank all our suppliers for exceeding our expectations.

Our day was simply incredible – which would not have been possible without the hard work of every member of staff at the barn – nothing felt like too much trouble. On the day itself we could relax knowing we were in the best hands. You made it better than we could ever have imagined – thank you so much. We now have memories which will last a lifetime.

Our wedding day was the best day of our whole lives and so much of that was down to all the staff. The Tythe Barn is such a special, special venue and everyone was blown away by it. The grounds are stunning, it makes for such a beautiful, romantic ceremony and turns into an incredible nightclub in the evening! You get the best of everything at Tythe. The staff are all so kind, helpful and passionate about what they do- they make you feel so special and take all the stress away. I can’t thank you all enough, our wedding day is everything we dreamed of and more. I would recommend getting married here to anyone, I wish I could rewind and do it all again! Thank you for everything, you’re all so amazing.

We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending The Tythe Barn to anyone as a wedding venue. It’s just as beautiful as all the pictures you see on Instagram and the team are experts at delivering. We felt like we were friends with Tina our wedding manager, it was so lovely planning with her and despite her chilled friendly nature everything ran like clockwork, but you wouldn’t have even known the team were there. We were so delighted to have the wedding we dreamed of with all our friends and family on 12th September 2021 after two postponed dates due to covid – it was worth the wait and we’re so grateful to the Tythe Barn team for their flexibility and support during such a difficult time for their business. Despite having weddings all week before and after ours, they make you feel so special on the day and have a very effective drop off/collection system led by a great team. Our guests had THE BEST time, and so did we.

We fell in love with the venue on our first visit. It is absolutely beautiful and on the day, well wow! The atmosphere was so relaxed from start to finish and so many of the wedding guests have been in touch to say how much they enjoyed the day and have nothing but words of praise for the venue, food and service.

Thank you so much to everyone at the Tythe Barn for giving us such a fabulous time at Lilian and Tom's wedding. All our guests were blown away by the beautiful setting and your warm welcome, and the efficiency of your whole team was exceptional. We never had to think about anything - it just happened!

We could not recommend The Tythe Barn more as a wedding venue. Being a “2020 Pandemic” bride & groom, we feel we are able to shout this out even more! We were supported from start to finish in what was an incredibly challenging time for the wedding industry; not once were we made to feel that our wedding was not important. Emma and Will allowed us to postpone our date, not once, but twice - Although the numbers were reduced on our wedding day, we got the perfect day we had hoped for! Their communication on changing guidelines was incredible – I know many couples were not as lucky and we could not be more grateful for their hard work during such a difficult time. Everything was exceptional on our day, exceeding what we could have imagined! The barn, grounds, food, service, everything was amazing. We got lucky with the weather on our day, but even the rain wouldn’t have spoilt it. Our wedding manager, Laura, was fantastic! When the government guidelines changed in the 2 weeks before our date, she was quick to respond to emails and phone to catch-up in the lead up. On the day she was there to ensure everything ran smoothly and we didn’t have one worry (not even when to start walking down the aisle). The catering and bar staff were all warm, friendly and attentive – Great representatives of the venue! No one was without food or drinks through-out the day. When it came time to leave (sparkler exit highly recommended) we didn’t feel rushed by anyone – Bar manager, Joe, even helped take our bags to the taxi, allowing us to enjoy our last moments there. Thank you to everyone for giving us the most special day!

As soon as we stepped through the doors of The Tythe Barn and were greeted by the staff, we were absolutely impressed by the welcome of the staff and the finish of the venue. Throughout the whole experience the attention to detail that had been paid to all the areas to make sure all guests and us, the bride and groom were met. What was also clear was the genuine passion of the whole team at The Tythe Barn and genuinely care about us. From the very beginning to the very end, they truly took care of us, especially during the pandemic. Even though we had to postpone three times, they were there every step of the way. On the day we were surprisingly chilled, thanks to the team running everything so smoothly and greeting everyone with a smile at every angle. We had the most fabtastic day and our guests told us that it was the very best wedding they had ever been to. They still talk about it nearly one year later. We couldn't have wished more than that.

The full team at Tythe worked tirelessly to make sure our day was more amazing than we could have ever imagined. The barn is such a beautiful venue with a magical atmosphere, and we are so glad we chose Tythe as our wedding venue. We had so many guests say how amazing the day was, how beautiful the barn was, and how hard all the staff worked on the day. Despite all the challenges faced throughout Covid, Tythe have been nothing short of supportive, encouraging and reassuring, and we are so grateful to them for their patience and dedication to helping us have the day we have always dreamt of. The barn was just how we wanted it to be, taking the stress out of the day so we could enjoy it to the fullest. We could not be any happier with how perfectly the day went, and just wish we could do it all over again! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

From the minute we walked into The Tythe Barn, we knew it was the venue for us. The aesthetics are stunning and we were made to feel so welcome from day one. Having postponed our wedding of 100+ in May to a wedding of 15 in December due to Covid-19, we were unsure of how this small wedding would feel. The Tythe Barn worked so hard to comply with government guidelines but also to ensure our wedding felt like a wedding! Their communication and positivity were faultless throughout such a stressful time. Our wedding of 15 was perfect! Laura guided us through each step of the day and, together with Joe, they gave us the best day ever! We can’t recommend this venue enough!

We had an absolutely fabulous time, even better than we had hoped / expected! Everybody at the barn were exceptional and given the challenges we all faced in the run up to the wedding I cannot praise you all highly enough for putting on such an unforgettable event at a beautiful venue

The perfect wedding venue. The barn itself deserves 5 stars, but the staff are what make this place truly magical. We had the best time and we felt supported and taken care of through every part of our big day. The staff are ninja like in how quickly and efficiently they move things around and setup between the meals, indoor and out. Can't recommend this venue enough! You won't be disappointed!!

We got married at the Tythe Barn in October 2019 and it was everything we could have wished for and more. The Tythe Barn was the second venue we visited and we knew pretty much instantly that it was the perfect place for our wedding. Within two days of our first visit we booked! What made the Tythe Barn really stand out was its rustic yet practical feel and the amazing staff members we met on the day. We knew, no matter how many venues we went to see, this was the place for us. In the build up to the day we felt very supported and no questions went unanswered. The day itself went by without a hitch, which is a credit to the professionalism and experience of all the staff, especially our wedding manager Laura. My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy every moment knowing everything was taken care of. The food is absolutely outstanding and people are still telling us that the pies for mains and pizzas for evening food are some of the best they’ve ever had. If you’re thinking of getting married in a barn setting, or your main focus is having an incredible, stress-free day, look no further than the Tythe Barn.

We had the most magical November Wedding at The Tythe Barn. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, I took moment as our day was winding down to stand at one end of the room looking down and having visited the venue so many times and spent all day enjoying it I was still absolutely blown away with how beautiful it looked. The thing that really sets The Tythe barn apart is the people. They have the most welcoming, dedicated team who truly care so much about the barn. They go above and beyond to ensure your day is everything you hope for and more, you really feel like your day is so important to them and it shows in their execution. The food was outstanding and we had so many compliments from our guests not only on the taste but the way it's presented too. The Bridal Nook is a lovely relaxing space to get ready in and my Husband and I stayed the night in the Shepherds hut, it was the cosiest little place, they even had the log burner going ready for us, it was the loveliest end to a perfect day. We couldnt recommend Tythe enough!!

We knew we were in safe hands with The Tythe Barn right from the start but nothing could prepare us for just how magical our wedding day actually would be. From start to finish it was truly superb. The venue, the team, the food, the organisation, the attention to detail and the care and passion were incredible. Dickie and I can’t thank you enough! ❤️

Laura was so on the ball – she knew exactly what the plan for the day was, right down to the smallest detail. Some of our guests commented what an amazing job she was doing, they were so impressed, as were we! Thank you Laura. The Tythe Barn is a beautiful venue. We enjoyed putting our personal touch on it with decorations and flowers and it lent itself so well to our style! The barn felt so cozy and magical with all of our flowers, lights and beautiful guests. Our wedding day at The Tythe Barn was genuinely the best day of our lives – everything went to plan, and that was thanks to the amazing team working tirelessly behind the scenes – absolute superstars! - Wedding date - October 2019

We had the most perfect wedding day at the Tythe Barn. Everything was taken care of and I knew right from the beginning that our day was in safe hands. We cannot thank the team enough for ensuring we had the relaxed day we had hoped for to enjoy with our friends and family from around the world and I have heard so many of our guests say wonderful things about the barn and the day. Wedding Date - 2nd November 2019

We had the most amazing day here for my daughters wedding . Tythe Barn is such a beautiful venue. It is maintained to a really high standard, and you can tell that it is run with a lot of love. The staff are like a family, and will do everything they can to make sure you have a perfect day. Jackie and the team were brilliant throughout the planning process, nothing was too much trouble. The day itself ran like clockwork, and the food was incredible. It’s also a photographers dream, as there are so many incredible photo opportunities here. If you want a barn wedding, look no further, this place is really quite magical.

Thank you so much Ann for taking the time to review the barn and for your kind words. It really is very much appreciated.

Review Bubble Tail

Tythe.'s response

A stunning venue that really felt magical from the first time we saw it, and didn’t fail to deliver on the day. From the oldy-worldy feel of the thatched barn and stone walling in its countryside setting, to the delightful courtyard with its wisteria pergola and beautifully pruned London Plane Trees, and the glass fronted Cow Shed, everything fit together to make something unique and wonderful that just suited our style. The team understood from the word go the kind of celebration we wanted to create. They had real attention to detail which helped us to relax and enjoy the day to the full. Wedding Date - June 2019

Wedding May 2019 - The Tythe Barn was everything we were looking for in a venue and it did not disappoint on the day. Our friends and family were in awe of how stunning it looked, the team made everything run smoothly without us even noticing and Absolute Taste smashed the food out of the park! We just wish we could do it all over again……. THANK YOU.

The Tythe Barn was our dream venue and we actually changed the date of our wedding to make sure we could have our wedding there. The whole team are fantastic - really friendly, personable, efficient, knowledgeable and professional. You feel like you're working with friends rather than suppliers. No request was too small and the whole planning process was made so effortless by all from the first phone call to on the big day itself. All our guests loved the venue and we can't recommend it enough!

From start to finish the team made us feel welcome, comfortable and confident that they would take the best care of us and our guests. With attention to detail and flexibility they gave us an even better day than we expected. Our guests including toddlers, children, elderly and disabled were all incredibly well looked after. We can’t thank them enough for making our special day even more memorable.

We are due to get married here in August and I honestly can not wait. The staff at Tythe Barn has been nothing less than outstanding, and have been so helpful in making the planning process easier.

Fantastic venue, staff can not do enough for you. Would recommend 100 times over - best wedding ever!

Our wedding went without a hitch and it was all down to the experience and professionalism from Tythe barn. From planning and right through the big day everyone was incredible and I couldn’t have asked for me. We didn’t have to worry about a thing as they had thought of it all and had it covered!

Absolutely brilliant venue. From start to finish, the communication, care and personal touch was what we loved about The Tythe Barn team.

couldn't fault our amazing day at the tythe barn

Great venue & staff. Real professional & attention to detail.

An absolutely stunning venue and beautiful grounds. But what was most impressive about the venue was how friendly the staff were with a definite can-do attitude. They made they say run so smoothly and allowed us to have a day full of our own ideas but also inspired us with more ideas to make the day more special. We loved loved loved our wedding thanks to the Tythe Barn. We couldn't rate them highly enough.

We only looked at The Tythe Barn as we instantly fell in love with it and knew this is where we wanted to get married. From day one, meeting the team, visiting, run through meeting, the coordination on the day which meant we didn't have to lift a finger and right through the whole day ensured the guests had the best day ever along with both my husband and I.

The Tythe Barn were absolutely brilliant at ensuring that we had an unforgettable wedding day. The day was organised to perfection and the setting up was left in capable hands; the venue was beautiful and just a short walk to the church, the Nook a great place to get ready and the food delicious. We have had so many positive comments from our guest with many saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to! We would highly recommend the venue and will fondly remember our wedding day forever

We can’t thank the Tythe Barn enough for the most amazing wedding day. It was absolutely faultless and the day felt effortless which meant we could take everything in. The team had it all in hand, everything was done before you even thought about it. Theyexceeded our expectations, it was everything we dreamed of and more. The service was incredible, the food was perfection…the whole place was just amazing. I can’t recommend it highly enough, we wouldn’t hav changed a thing from start to finish.

The tythe barn was the perfect venue for our wedding. Not only was the preparation and delivery on the day fantastic, the team completely brought to life our vision. We couldn't have asked for more.

Throughout all the planning, the discussions and on the day itself, the staff at The Tythe Barn were very attentive as well as being calm and professional which allowed both of us to be chilled and relaxed right through to our day itself as we could rest in the knowledge that they had everything covered and that was exactly what we wanted on our day.

We couldn't have hoped for a more perfect day. Amazing venue with amazing food - our guests are still talking about nearly 1 year later. From getting ready in the nook to staying the night in the shepherds hut it was truly a magical experience and we didn't have to worry about a thing. We were so well looked after from our 1st visit to The Tythe Barn to leaving the morning after our wedding. We were so glad we chose to get married here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

From the very beginning the highly professional team made arranging our wedding from 3500 miles away easy. They were calm, precise in their advice, efficient and discrete on the day, but always there when you needed them. The venue was a perfect setting for the day, from the Nook where my wife and her team got ready, to the barn and cowshed itself. It was perfect. It almost felt like they’d polished the snow and arranged for the sunshine at no extra cost. A beautiful day for us all. Thank you

Everything was perfect from the moment we walked into the venue for the first time. The team and especially Jackie were wonderful, they made our day so special and took so much stress away from us. I would recommend this venue to anyone, we couldn't have asked for more. The location was perfect, the food was amazing and everything happened seamlessly. I wish I could have the whole day again.

Everything about this venue is perfect. From the attention to detail, stunning barn and grounds (especially for photos), the staff who were so helpful and generous with their time in advance, accommodating all our requests and lots of early drop offs. On the day they orchestrated everything perfectly - we didn’t have to worry about a thing and they made the day flow seamlessly. The venue is perfectly compact which helps maintain an incredible atmosphere and the food was Absolutely delicious!

The Tythe Barn is an amazing venue, and the staff could not have been more helpful. On the day Laura was fantastic and was there to support us every step of the way. The venue itself is stunning, beautifully maintained and full of character. Everyone commented on what a beautiful venue it was & everything ran extremely smoothly both on the day and in the lead up to the big day. I cannot recommend the Tythe Barn highly enough, it was everything we wanted and more.

From enquiry all the way through to the end of the wedding night, The Tythe Barn were exceptional. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Every single detail was though through and my husband and I could enjoy every second of our wedding day. The food was incredible; our friends and family still talk about it now 5 months on! The venue is stunning. I wish I could do it all over again

Amazing people, amazingvenue amazing venue. Very happy bride and groom!

The team at the tythe barn went above and beyond our expectations and delivered a day that was more than perfect. The service, standard of grounds, help, communication, options, personal care and everything else was second to none. We are so pleased to have chosen this venue for our day and couldn’t recommend them enough!

The most amazing venue, all our dreams come true

Everything about TTB was absolute perfection. From the owner taking us on our own guided tour, through to the service provided pre-wedding and on the day itself, it was perfection. We could not have asked for more. The venue on the day was stunning - better than when we first saw it! The icing on the cake of the day was the food. I have never been to a wedding where so many people spoke about how good the food was, it was absolutely incredible.

Could not fault this venue, they were amazing in very aspect. They made sure our day ran perfectly It is perfect for all weathers, light and airy with bi-folding doors, no one felt cramped or closed in. Everyone enjoyed he food so much some people even asked me for a copy of the menu. They were approachable and adaptable every step of the way, even allowing for our elderly dog to stay in a side room the entire day so we now have those precious moments with her. They went above and beyond for us.

The team at the Tythe Barn were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The barn is beautiful and kept extremely well. I had complete confidence in the team especially Jackie ensuring our day would be exactly how we wanted it. We always had prompt replies to quesrions and they went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. To conclude I could not fault a single thing about the Tythe Barn, it's a beautiful venue, a fantastic team ran by passionate people. I would highly recommend them.

The team were A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I didn't expect to feel so part of the 'family' as we did. They made us feel like everything we said was so valued or not a problem, check in emails, run through meetings, venue visits whenever we wanted, tastings, it was all an absolute dream and I couldn't have wished for a better team to handle my wedding (worth noting that we didn't lift a finger with decorating the place too!)

The team at the Tythe Barn were amazing - both in the process prior to our wedding and on the day, they could not have done any more for us

Jackie in particular was incredible. A completely stress free & enjoyable process from start ro finish. Lots of info pre-wedding, a long run through meeting with advice- nothing was too much trouble & we weren’t rushed. On the day, I knew I could leave the team to it & trusted that it would be perfect (& i’m a control freak!) I could just focus on celebraring my marriage....They do SO many weddings but I felt like I was the only person to ever get married there- so special.

Laura was an absolute star! Both prior to the wedding in the planning process and throughout the day. She was always to hand predicting what we needed and leading us through the process which can be quite bewildering! She helped with a last minute emergency with the Groom and was always bright and cheerful. She thought of absolutely everything! Will the owner was extremely helpful too and helped me with visualising the layout and was always making improvements. A great friendly team!

A very committed team to making the most perfect day! They go the extra mile to make your own ideas work, but they also give ideas to make the day more special. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. A lovely bunch of people. On the day, all the staff were so helpful and organised. They facilitated an extremely smooth running day in a relaxed manner. Nothing was too much effort. All the guests commented on how amazing Laura organised the whole day. We can't thank her enough!

My wedding was more than what I dreamed thanks to my amazing wedding coordinator Laura. Laura calmed me down when I had emotional and wobble moments down to helping me organise the children to walk sensible down the altar. Laura listened to my idea of what I wanted and worked to what I have her and she really went above and beyond with everything. It’s really hard to pin point a few things when if Laura wasn’t there it wouldn’t of been anywhere near as smoothly ran. I owe everything to her.

Absolutely nothing that could be improved

They were all amazing!

Wow The most fantastic venue I’ve ever seen totally takes your breath away Can’t wait for my big day The staff also male the venue nothing is to much trouble and it’s fantastic to see how much passion they have for the barn

The most beautiful and special venue????????

Absolutely fantastic!!!!

Great setting, wonderful atmosphere, amazing food, lovely staff.


Wow! What a classy venue and what an A team. We loved having our special day here and wish we could do it all over again. We planned the wedding from abroad and the team were so helpful, super responsive and bent over backwards to make our day what it was. All our guests commented on how beautiful it was, especially so at Christmas with the decorations. I’d recommend this venue and team to anyone! And I’d urge you to book the Nook and Shepherd’s Hut too; the Nook looks beautiful in the photos and the Hut is so cosy and cute – the perfect end to your wedding day. Wedding date 22nd December 2018

We have many brides who get married at Tythe Barn, all of which speak very highly of the venue and the team. Having visited Tythe Barn numerous times for a styled photo-shoot and wedding fairs we wouldn't hesitate to recommend. A beautiful venue with helpful and friendly staff

Fantastic venue and fabulous staff!

Amazing venue! The team at the barn can’t do enough for you. Their attention to details is fabulous and their support to getting your day as you want was impeccable. The food was sensational. Best venue around!!!

A fabulous venue, with great staff and location. Always a pleasure to photograph there.

Amazing venue !! 10 years on revisited and the lovely team welcomed us back for a special anniversary picnic. Such a magical place .

Best wedding venue ever! My wife and I were made to feel so comfortable and relaxed. We knew everything was in the safe hands of the staff. Cannot thank Jacky and the team enough for making our day the best it could possibly have been.

Always a top service from the team here. Makes a celebrant's job much easier!

We got married her in June 2017. It was the best day of my life (obviously) and the most stress free because the venue were absolutely amazing! The food was incredible, the place was beautiful and the staff that work with Will were lovely. I couldn’t praise this place highly enough.

This venue is a dream! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, the owners have thought of every detail to make it perfect and you can tell they really care. Our wedding day was perfection, I just wish it could have gone on forever. The food was excellent, my guests said best they had ever had! The staff were all lovely and the day ran very smoothly. Highly recommend this venue!

We first visited the Barn in January 2017 - Reg (the dog) bounded up to us, and one of the owners children offered our son a chocolate brownie whilst he crawled up and down the slope to the Cow Shed. From that moment, we knew it was the venue for us. It was just beautiful and the family feel was incredible. The long wait to our wedding in November 2018 was made easy by having regular contact with the team at the barn - keeping us super excited! Our day ran as smoothly as we could have hoped for and Laura was fantastic at making sure everything ran to time and that we got to enjoy our day. The catering was incredible, and also part of our decision to get married here. Nothing at all seemed too much trouble and I just wish we could do it all over again! Wedding date 24th November 2018

Fantastic venue and fantastic day!

We both cannot thank you all enough for making our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives. You really bought our dreams to a reality and we now have memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you! Wedding date 4th August 2018.

For Hollie and I the best bits of the day are hard to separate as everything went fantastically - the smoothness of the ceremony, the decoration and the food and drink were outstanding! It was the best day of our lives and the Tythe Barn will always be an extremely special place for us, couldn’t have asked for more. Tom (Groom) Wedding date 23rd August 2018

We had our wedding at The Tythe Barn at the weekend, we viewed at least ten venues before we went to The Tythe Barn. When we walked around the corner and saw the front of the venue we instantly knew it was the one. Everything about the place is perfect from the barn to the staff to the food... Everything! I have tried to think of any negative points to add to make this an honest review but I can't think of anything not even a minor one. The management and staff are what made our experience so great. Wedding date 28th July 2018

What can I say? The whole day was simply superb. The setting was amazing and together with your excellent staff, the catering, the refectory dining area, the garden at the back for guests to sit in enjoying the sun or the shade and the peaceful moments, all made for the most memorable day. Finally Laura. A true professional, ensuring every aspect of the day ran smoothly, remaining calm and patient even during the most frantic moments. Thank you. Bill Graham. (Father of the bride). Wedding date 21st July 2018

A massive thank you for making our wedding day on Saturday so amazing. Laura's professionalism, friendliness and warmth on the day will not be forgotten. Yaz and Nick. Wedding date 11th August 2018

Thank you soooo much for the most incredible wedding day! We wouldn't have changed a thing! We had the very best day and are constantly reminiscing various elements of it! Wedding date 20th October 2018

I really don’t know where to start! We got engaged in 2016 and 2 weeks later, we paid a deposit and had our date booked. We only looked at The Tythe Barn as we instantly fell in love with it and knew this is where we wanted to get married. From day one, meeting Will and having the pleasure of walking around – to emailing the lovely ladies in the office – to visiting a few times to see the place again (because we just loved it so much) – to the run through meeting with Jackie where she literally pieced everything together – to the morning of the wedding where I had a complete breakdown because I lost something and Jackie putting me back together again – to the umbrellas appearing as if by magic because it started raining in the middle of our ceremony – to the setup and decor of the venue being absolutely how I dreamt it would be – to spending our first night as a married couple in the Shepherd’s Hut… it was just so wonderfully magical. Everything was just absolutely amazingly done, and I couldn’t have wished for a nicer team to work with. Of course, a special mention has to go to the food – I don’t think anyone was expecting how gorgeous it was and I am STILL (after nearly 2 weeks) getting messages from guests about “that beef” or “those pizzas”. So thank you so much, we will be forever grateful to you all! xoxox Wedding date 6th September 2018

A stunning venue with beautiful grounds. A complimentary mix of classic barn style with modern decor. The staff are wonderful and truly contributed to our special day. Another big plus was the delicious food... a genuine knockout! Thank you Tythe Barn team for bringing our dream wedding to life and giving us and our guests memories which will last forever. Wedding date 19th October 2018

The Tythe Barn was our dream wedding venue and it lived up to every expectation we had! The barn is stunning and the team are so friendly and welcoming, it feels like hosting your wedding with friends. We can’t fault anything from the catering, to the service, to the suppliers. If you’re after a barn wedding, the Tythe Barn is definitely the one!

The Tythe Barn were absolutely brilliant at ensuring that we had an unforgettable wedding day. The day was organised to perfection and great that the setting up was left in your capable hands; the venue was beautiful, the food delicious and the music so good that nobody wanted to leave the dance floor! The venue was perfect that it was just a short walk to the church – something which the guests thought was much better than a traditional car. We have had so many positive comments from our guests, with many saying that it was the best wedding they had ever been too. We really appreciate the day being so well planned that I had a lovely morning spent with my bridesmaids in the Nook and time set aside during the wedding to spend some time as a newly married couple. I know that we will remember our wedding day with fond memories for the rest of our lives!

What an extraordinary venue! From start to finish The Tythe Barn provided an amazing wedding experience. They made planning extremely easy by facilitating all the ideas we had. They also gave us great ideas we would never have thought about from the self carve to the sparkler walk. The wedding day itself was absolutely magical. It ran so smoothly and all the staff went above and beyond to make it the best day of our lives. We wish we could do it all again!

Great venue, great location and guests were very impressed by the laid back approach and amazing food

Nothing we requested was too much, tailored their service to our needs perfectly. Jackie and her team ran the whole day perfectly and smoothly so we could just enjoy our day win our guests. Superb venue, food was delicious and our guests have all said what a perfect venue it was.

We were promised that our guests would say it was the best wedding they'd ever been to and it was true! The day was faultless with such an eye for detail and slick organisation. The staff are wonderful and the venue is so pretty and atmospheric. It is also really practical, offering you and your guests a variety of spaces to enjoy throughout the day. The bridal preparation room The Nook is gorgeous and a really special way to start your big day! We loved our wedding day at the barn.

We are so glad we decided to get married at The Tythe Barn. The barn and surroundings are beautiful and stylishly rustic. Everyone in the team were really friendly and we're happy to accommodate anything we wanted. They provided the perfect balance between us arranging the day how we wanted it whilst giving guidance and expert advice. On the day itself we didn't have to worry about anything as Jackie and her excellent team had everything covered. They also have a wonderful partnership with Jamie Olivers Fabulous Feasts which did the most amazing food ever. We would most definitely recommend The Tythe Barn to all.

The whole process, from start to finish was just simply brilliant. Professional, friendly and best of all fun. I cannot reccomend the venue and the team highky enough.

Beautiful venue, excellent staff, perfect for our special day!

Tythe Barn was as beautiful on my wedding day as the first time I saw it. Everyone at Tythe Barn provided an excellent service and I did not have to think about a thing, except enjoying my special day. It was perfect.

We had our wedding there in July this year, it was the most amazing day, not just because the barn itself is so beautiful but each and every one of the staff made sure that everything was perfect! A truly magical place and such amazing staff!
