Q. Is there heating and air conditioning?
Yes, the Barns are underfloor heated and underfloor cooled throughout plus air conditioning using the latest Viessmann renewable energy supply. Not to mention natural fresh air from the full height glass bifold doors opening onto the gardens. There is also a lovely wood burning stove in the snug area for those colder months.
Q. Do you have disabled and baby change facilities?
Yes, the whole venue from the car park through to the barns and extensive gardens is all on one level without any steps allowing easy disabled access. Although the main toilets are upstairs there are ground level disabled toilet facilities which also accomodate a baby change area. 8 lovely little white highchairs are provided for up to two year olds. It is recommended parents bring booster seats for small children if required.
Q. Is there somewhere to get ready before the ceremony?
Yes, our Bridal room will ensure you feel totally pampered on your wedding day. Arrival from 8.00am (earlier by arrangement with the owners), the luxury en-suite with walk in wet room is on hand for you to use throughout the day. Why not start the day with a fabulous champagne breakfast and freshly made pastries from our kitchen? - Just perfect!
Q. What about if it rains?
The Barns were designed so that they work just as well on a cold rainy day as they do on a clear sunny day. The Lounge Bar area provides ample space for your reception. As well as our main Barn for Civil Ceremonies, the Redbrick Barn is also perfect for a separate reception area if arriving from one of the local churches. Come the evening it can also be used for alternative entertainment, for example a children's play area; a great space for indoor photography; a video diary room; or even a casino!
Q. Is there a quieter area for older guests to get away from the noise of the Band/ DJ?
Yes, during the evening entertainment the glass doors to the Snug off the main Lounge Bar can be closed to provide a quiet and comfy area for older guests without them feeling excluded from the wedding party. This is one of our favourite areas with comfy sofas and the log burning stove to relax with family and friends.
Q. Do you have overnight accommodation for the Bride & Groom?
