All about Sandhole Oak Barn

As you come down the drive to this charming Cheshire wedding venue, this hidden gem is revealed. With rolling fields all around, Sandhole Oak Barn feels miles away from anywhere yet is easily accessible and the ideal place for any country-loving couple to hold their big day.

The traditionally-styled barn stands proud overlooking the tranquil lake and surrounding greenery. Mellow oak beams provide a wonderful sense of authenticity while the expansive windows let the sunlight pour in. This enchanting barn is divided into two parts; the Ceremony Barn where you can tie the knot with views of the lake behind you, and the Dining Barn, a delightfully versatile space that’s ideal for intimate and larger weddings alike.

For a truly unique wedding ceremony, exchange your vows outside under the Oak Clock Tower, just a few feet from the lake, and take in your idyllic location as you say ‘I do’. With the sun shining and your nearest and dearest all around you, there really is nowhere else like marrying at Sandhole Oak Barn.

After your ceremony, celebrate on the verandah overlooking the lake with a glass of bubbly and delicious canapés, soaking up the tranquillity. In the colder months, there is plenty of room in the barn to mingle with your guests and yet still enjoy the gorgeous views through the panoramic windows.

The Dining Barn provides an incredible setting for your wedding breakfast and evening reception, complete with plenty of natural beauty and a neutral décor that gives you the flexibility to make the place your own. This light-filled airy space is perfect for any season. Throw open the French doors and let the breeze drift in during the summer, or create a cosy and inviting feeling in the winter with underfloor heating and fairy lights wrapped around the exposed beams. Whatever the time of year, the lake and surrounding countryside create a magical backdrop for your whole day.

You can relax knowing that our award-winning approved caterer and wedding coordinator, Top Table, is there to ensure a stress-free perfect wedding day, offering a diverse selection of mouth-watering menu options freshly prepared from locally-sourced produce.

As well as exclusive use of the Oak Barn, you also have the Small Barn to enjoy. This characterful space sits just a few steps away and is ideal for welcoming guests before your wedding, entertaining younger guests, or for winding down at the end of the evening.

As day turns to dusk, take the opportunity to steal a few moments together as a married couple. Watch the sun set over the lake from the verandah, and let your special day sink in at this unique Cheshire wedding venue.

Exclusive use of a gorgeous Dressing Room, spacious bridal suite, and extensive award-winning luxury accommodation is also available on-site through the separate Sandhole Farm B&B for you and 39 guests in their beautifully restored stables.

A fabulous location, in the heart of the glorious Cheshire countryside, Sandhole Oak Barn is an outstanding setting for an unforgettable and very special day.

When are you thinking of getting married?

Sandhole Oak Barn is beautiful all year round, but which is the ideal season for your special day?

The venue and its surroundings come to life during the spring months. Cygnets and ducklings make a home on the lake, which is surrounded by a ring of delightful yellow Iris, providing a beautiful natural backdrop for your wedding day.

The idyllic outside space at Sandhole Oak Barn makes it perfect for a summer wedding. Tie the knot outdoors under the impressive Clock Tower and celebrate long into the evening with your guests on the veranda, overlooking the lake and rolling Cheshire countryside.

The surrounding greenery gives way to glorious reds, golds and browns, creating a wonderfully colourful setting for your special day. The exposed timbers and white walls of the barn lend themselves perfectly to autumnal flowers and decorations, helping you create that stunning, rustic wedding.

The Oak Barn provides a wonderfully intimate and cosy setting for a winter wedding. Twinkling fairy lights and seasonal decorations transform the versatile barn into a warm and relaxing escape from the cold, while the large windows offer views out over the crisp gardens and lake.
