Customer Reviews

We had our wedding celebration at this venue and I couldn't recommend it enough. I specifically searched for a 'family' orientated venue because I didn't want your stereotypical conveyor belt type wedding venue, where you can't be in until 1pm and have to leave by 10am the next day. If that's what you're looking for then this is the place for you. The family live on site and are so accommodating with any request. There are some rooms for immediate guests to stay but there's also free camping (which is again why we booked) and guests brought their own tents, or you can hire glamping tents from the venue. The grounds are absolutely stunning and there's so many spots for photos but also plenty of space for guests - both indoors and outdoors. We could hire any supplier so you weren't tied into specific companies and this gives you plenty of flexibility to budget for what's important. We booked 2 years ago and they have made so many changes and invested in the venue since we booked, which all made such a difference. Ok you don't have a 'wedding organiser' on the day but we had time in the week before the day to decorate and sort things out and didn't have to leave until 4/5pm on the Sunday. If you need some help though, one of the family, Chris, offers a specific service on the day of your event to oversee things and that really was perfect to let you relax and enjoy the day. Even though the venue is a gorgeous barn with gardens, it can cater for a formal event with silver service or like us, you can have a very relaxed day with a served buffet and casual bar with a band in the evening. I want to say thank you so much to the family for being absolutely fantastic in the build up to the wedding and for letting us create our own day from their gorgeous venue.

Rumbolds Farm is such a beautiful venue and we had a wonderful wedding day. It was great to have the time to set up the venue in advance of the day and Chris was on hand to help with any queries we had. We held the ceremony outside on the beautiful lawn, followed by drinks on the patio, served from the outside bar. The smaller barn looked gorgeous for our wedding dinner and we used the larger barn for our cake cutting, dancing and evening food. We thoroughly recommend Rumbolds Barn.

What a weekend!!! We had the most amazing weekend with our family and friends celebrating our vow renewal at rumbolds farm barns on saturday, after 14 years of marriage. from start to finish Susie,Andrew and Chris were on hand for any advice we needed. and we had the most wonderful comments on the day and since from our guests about how stunning the venue was. The option to make a real weekend of it with the campsite was a real bonus, we chose to hire in belltents for some of our guests to make the most of all the space. The grounds are stunning and I just wish we could do it all over again!! The added extra of being able to pay for the venue in monthly installments was the icing on the cake for us, and I cant thank the owners enough, it was a weekend we and our guests will never forget :) if you are considering Rumbolds farm for your special day look no further because you have found the perfect venue, :😀 I'm only sad that all the 2 years of planning is over!

Thank you Nikki and Michael for your lovely review It was lovely to meet you and I do hope you will keep in touch and we will see you in the future at Rumbolds

Rumbolds Barn's response

Exclusive use and pretty much free reign during set up to create our perfect day. The venue is stunning with plenty of space, parking etc. All our guests commented on how beautiful it was. We opted to have our ceremony outside by the lake, our food inside the beamed barn and then a huge party in the second and much larger barn. Loads of outdoor seating, a stunning outdoor bar (perfect for welcome drinks) and all very accessible for those not too steady on their feet… The accommodation is great, Susie is really on the ball with breakfast! The cottage was fantastic and again plenty of room for myself, bridesmaids, MUA and photographer. A really relaxed vibe which created a great atmosphere on the day.

Thank you for your lovely review it was a pleasure to host your wedding here Do keep in touch and come back and visit us Susie and team

Rumbolds Barn's response

From the moment we saw the venue, we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding reception. It didn't disappoint; in Christopher, you have an amiable, professional and unflappable host. The setting is simply beautiful. A lot of care and attention has been paid to make it perfect for the photographer. To top it all, we were allowed some days before the big day to set up so there was no pre-wedding day stress. Some beautiful accomodation and a very nice breakfast is available too. Our wedding day was 8 weeks ago and our family and guests are still raving about it. Very highly recommended.

Lisa & David Married in September 2019 October 2019 Best wedding ever As soon as I saw this venue I fell in love with it. With the beautiful lake and lovely flowers surrounding the venue, it couldn't have been a more perfect setting. The gardens are immaculately maintained and there are plenty of benches for seating. Planning a wedding couldn't be more stressful but Susie and Andy make you feel at ease and are very relaxed and easy going. They are there every step of the way with the planning stage and nothing is too much trouble for them. You are allowed access to the barn a few days before hand. We started setting up on a Wednesday for a Saturday wedding. This really relieves the pressure and stress of setting up so this is a huge bonus! I would highly recommend this wedding venue to anyone ! Thank you so much Susie and Andy!

Fiona Married in June 2019 July 2019 The most beautiful, relaxed venue We had our wedding reception at Rumbolds in June and it couldn't have been better. The venue was absolutely stunning with all of the green gardens and beautiful flowers. Our guests loved it and we got some beautiful photos. You can tell that the owners really take care of it. The barn itself was big enough to fit our 90ish guests, and has permanent fairy lights which make it look amazing. There's also accommodation onsite which was great for friends with young children. The owners are what really make Rumbolds - they couldn't have been more flexible or helpful with planning the wedding and making sure that it all went smoothly on the day. We supplied our own drinks, had a hog roast and a ceilidh. I also can't thank the owners enough for helping my mum who hurt her back. They really went above and beyond to make her comfortable and make sure she was ok. If you want a wedding venue that you can really make your own, I would definitely recommend Rumbolds.

Mr & Mrs Thornber Married in June 2019 June 2019 The perfect venue, the perfect day Susie and her family are what makes Rumbolds Barn so special. From the moment we viewed the barn we knew it was the one for us. Susie is so kind, helpful and accommodating, on what is the best day of your lives. She makes you feel at ease on creating what you want from your wedding day. The fact you can gain access to the barn a few days earlier eases the stresses of trying to get everything organised for the big day. The day after the wedding Susie is there, with the help of Tilly, making breakfast for the guests who stayed in the B&B, a really family orientated set up which we love. The next day isn’t a rush to leave the barn either, we could casually clear away and leave the barn later. A real gem in the heart of the countryside, we had the most wonderful day and having our wedding at Rumbolds played a huge part in that!

Laura & Adam Married in June 2019 July 2019 Perfect, magical wedding setting. We had our wedding at Rumbolds Farm in June and I cannot express enough how fantastic this venue is. As soon as we arrived to have a look around, we absolutely fell in love and we knew right away this was the most perfect venue for our wedding. The gardens are absolutely stunning with beautiful flowers all around. The barn was a perfect setting for the wedding breakfast and dancing, it was absolutely beautiful and needed very little decoration. The accommodation was also fantastic with the best fry up breakfast, cooked by Susie, that we’ve ever had! Susie and Andy were fantastic hosts. Susie answered all our emails quickly and couldn’t have been more helpful, warm and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. I can’t fault Rumbolds Farm as a wedding venue, it truly was the most magical setting for our wedding and we had the best day of our lives.

Alex Married in May 2019 July 2019 A truly magical time! We got married at Rumbolds on the 25th May 2019 and it surpassed all our hopes and dreams. We spent from the Tuesday before the Wedding staying at Rumbolds with a couple of friends who were helping us to decorate the barn and generally chill out before the big day. Having so much time to relax and get things ready at your own pace really helped. It very much felt like 'our own space'. The surroundings are absolutely stunning and the barn has so much rustic charm it was absolutely perfect. A big thank you to Susie and her team who were always on hand to answer any questions. Having so many accommodation options on site as well was a huge bonus. It meant all our close friends could stay for a couple of days celebrating with us. We couldn't have wished for a better time and I would highly recommend Rumbolds as a venue!
