Full Description
Couples are invited to tie the knot in the 300-year old Rickety Barn, a lovingly restored traditional timber barn with solid oak beams and wrought iron chandeliers. With twinkling fairy lights, it’s the perfect space to say ‘I do’. Seating up to 150 guests, it also features a ‘nook’ on the second floor, the ideal spot for a photographer or musician. After the ceremony has taken place, invite your guests to enjoy reception drinks in the modern Moat Barn with its sophisticated bar, spilling out on to the pretty landscaped gardens to mingle amongst the peacocks. The Bridge Barn is the setting for your wedding breakfast at Bassmead Manor Barns. Modern and flooded with natural daylight, spectacular features include a dramatic timbered ceiling and impressive oak doors offering views across the gardens and moat. A delicate, neutral colour scheme gives you the opportunity to create your own style on a blank canvas, while its elegant simplicity needs little other than some beautiful floral arrangements. The on-site catering and events team will work with you to create delicious food for your wedding day. Menus are expertly prepared and beautifully presented, giving you and your guests a spectacular dining experience. Every element of the day is bespoke and tailored to your needs, from the more formal wedding breakfast, to theatrical street food, barbecues, canapés and cocktails. As the sun goes down, it’s time to dance the night away, perhaps even enjoying the patio outside and wandering in to the starlit gardens. You won't want your day to end so, with that in mind, newlyweds can spend the night in Dove Cottage – your very own honeymoon cottage. For your closest friends and family, Appletree Cottage features seven beautifully designed bedrooms. Enjoy a breakfast together the following morning to share stories of a wonderful day.

Perfect wedding
We had the perfect wedding here. The staff were always so helpful and quick at responding before the big day and on the day our wedding coordinator, Leah, ensured the day ran smoothly and went to plan. The food was delicious and was presented very well. The venue is beautiful and so peaceful. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for somewhere to get married, from the moment we saw it we both wanted to get married there and we're so pleased we made that decision. I wouldn't have wanted to get married anywhere else.

The most beautiful venue & hardest working staff!
We simply cannot thank Jenny and the Bassmead team enough for helping to make our wedding day extra special. If you're thinking of booking here - just go and have a visit and you'll see why it took our breath away! There is so much space here - so even if it's raining on your day, you won't feel closed in. And if it is dry, there are plenty of great places to go and get unique photos - from the bridge with moat, to that famous blue door and the fields with peacocks. Every inch of this place is photogenic. We had a specific vision for our day (lots of colour and some alpacas!) and Jenny and the team were completely there with us every step of the way to help bring this to life. No matter how many questions we had (and I had a lot!), nothing seemed like too much trouble. On the day, the team were always there making everything work behind the scenes and looking after us and the guests. Their attention to detail is incredible! It really does feel like they can't do enough to help us - so many guests commented on the superb service. The food is next level. We were told by so many guests that it was 'the best wedding food they've ever had' and we agree! We had custom dishes and some little changes from the main menu - so if you want something special, just ask! The chefs were more than happy to make something just for us. Walking into the Rickety Barn on my wedding day will remain one of my happiest and most special memories - the perfect start to what was such a wonderful day. My new husband and I can't recommend the venue and the Galloping Gourmet team enough. Thank you!

Best. Day. Ever.
The team at Bassmead we’re completely flawless in their coordination and execution of our wedding. Amanda was just the woman we needed to get the boys where they needed to be and to keep me calm. The day went without a glitch and I cannot thank Amanda, verity and the team enough. ❤️

Everything was PERFECT!
Wow! From the planning to the special day, Bassmead Manor Barns were AMAZING! Amanda was so helpful and lovely, we really felt like she was a part of our day! Amanda helped us to set up the day before and was so patient with us as we made everything just how we wanted!! On the day... everything was PERFECT! When we arrived in the morning to the bridal boudoir, the cleaner popped by and told us to just enjoy the day and not worry about tidying!! He was so lovely! Amanda then helped the day to run perfectly! She made sure that we had food and drink throughout the day and kept checking on us! The food was delicious!! Beautifully presented and tasted amazing!! People haven’t stopped talking about how good that steak was. We would recommend this venue 100%. We wish we could do it all over again!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

One of our favourite weddings was Jenny, our Senior Events Manager, right at the start of us opening up again in May 2021. We were able to make her day perfect for her and also enjoy being guests and self appointed bridesmaids!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't sweat the small things. Everything you are worrying about being perfect you won't think about on the day because you will be too busy having the best time ever!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Champagne bottles as table names. Each Champagne bottle was from a special life event for the couple and there was a story to go with them on each table.
