Civil ceremonies
Bartholomew Barn is licenced for civil ceremonies for up to 100 guests. The rustic barn setting is very romantic.

Drinks receptions
Double doors lead from the barn onto a charming courtyard with a central formal fishpond. With umbrellas providing shade in summer and patio heaters for warmth on cooler autumn days, the courtyard is perfect for a drinks reception. Alternatively, a smaller marquee can be joined to the barn if required.

Wedding receptions
The barn can seat up to 100 guests for your wedding meal. A huge wood burner at one end of the main barn makes it equally suitable for winter wedding receptions. For larger guest numbers, a marquee can be set up adjoining the barn, or freestanding in the neighbouring field, for up to 200 guests.

In addition to the Main Barn, a smaller open-sided barn runs the length of the courtyard. Decorated with flowers or fairy lights it makes a lovely spot for a barbecue or hog roast.

Changing room
The Potting Shed is a cute changing room for the wedding couple.
