We have been desperate to sort this one out…finally the Wedding Barn is getting a new floor! Gone will be the uneven ground under the carpet and in will be going a wooden-style floor. The floor is being done in two phases – phase one (18th November to 30th November) will be the worst part – removing the sand (from when it was a horse arena) and then building a new floor. This means that during this time for obvious reasons the Wedding Barn will be closed. Phase two (end of December) will be the laying of the new floor. We are working towards the Barn Floor being in place for early January 2018.
New Electric Gates – New gates are currently being installed, creating a more impressive entrance. This will also include improvements to the surface of the drive and gorgeous lamps all the way down the drive.
Planning permission has now been secured for an Outdoor Gazebo which we will seek to get licensed so we can hold outdoor wedding ceremonies next year.
Wheatsheaf Barn – The planning permission also included new awnings for the entrance to Wheatsheaf Barn which means that your guests will be able to enjoy the views even in the rain! We will also be expanding the size of Wheatsheaf Barn which means the area will be a lot bigger for guests to mingle during welcome drinks.
We still have a few slots available for our Christmas Afternoon Tea on the 3rd December and 17th December 2017. Featuring a whole plethora of seasonal delights and a glass of prosecco and a mini bottle of mulled wine, this is the perfect Christmas treat.
To book yourself on either Christmas experience, please call Georgie on 01204 852113.
Wedding Feast Experience – LAST CHANCE FOR TICKETS…
Our Wedding Feast Experiences are the perfect opportunity to taste a feast of delights from our Rustic Fun Wedding package and accompanying wine. It is not only an event held for future brides and grooms to envision their Wedding Day, but allows our Wedding Coordinators to get to know you in a relaxed and fun setting. You will also get to meet our hospitable staff, and Chef Karl, who is on-hand to answer any questions guests may have on the night.
For £35 per person, experience a five-course delicious Wedding feast along with wine-tasting , and a whole lot of fun.
Just think, you could bring your bridesmaids for a Girls’ Night, or your Best Man & co. for a Lads’ Night of food and Llama Lager. You could even impress your future in-laws by treating them to a glorious banquet of content.
Our next Wedding Feast Experience is Thursday 6th November 2017 @ 7:30pm

Christmas Opening Times:
In the spirit of wellbeing and letting our hard-working team take a good break, unusual for a hospitality business, everyone is getting time off over Christmas and New Year to relax and have fun with their families. So, we will be closed from Friday 22nd December and re-open on Wednesday 3rd January.
We have done well in recent awards scoring ‘Highly Commended‘ in The 2018 Wedding Industry Awards for the North West in the Countryside Wedding Venue category.
New additions for that fun, quirky and magical wedding experience…
For those who dare, we have our Ammunition Shot Box, which you can use with either Tequila or Sambuca! In addition, our Magic Cupboard in the Wheatsheaf Barn is a fantastic new addition for you and your guests. Choose from a Rum Hut, Gin House or Pimp My Prosecco.
So if you haven’t been to visit, there are at least 3 ways you can:
1. Wedding Open Days
Just turn up (no appointment necessary) and view the Barn dressed for a wedding.
2. Wedding Wednesday
EVERY Wednesday we are open 5.30-7.30pm to showcase the Barn to prospective wedding couples. This doesn’t stop you from popping in if you need any measurements, advice or just want another look to get some styling ideas… No appointment necessary.
3. Call 01204 852113 and book an appointment with one of our Wedding Coordinators
