Shustoke Farm Barns
As the name suggests, the idyllic Shustoke Farm Barns lie within the pretty village of Shustoke, deep in the rolling Warwickshire countryside. The venue itself is a perfect mix of impressive historic architecture and picturesque rural surroundings, making it the ideal hideaway for a wedding celebration.
Shustoke Farm Barns is a dramatic venue that will immediately take your breath away; its main 18th century red brick barn has been updated with stylish wooden doors and a welcoming glass entryway, while vintage features such as the flagstone floors and wrought-iron chandeliers speak to the venue's history. If you can bear to leave the beautiful main room, you can retire to the courtyard to enjoy a hog roast cooked in the outdoor kitchen amongst the Mediterranean olive trees.
