The most perfect day
We got married at Milling Barn in December 2022 and could not be any happier with our choice of venue. From the very beginning at enquiry stage, Gemma was really helpful with answering our (many!) questions promptly and concisely, so when we went to visit we already knew it was the perfect venue on paper. Seeing it in real life confirmed that it was the one for us; we absolutely loved all the spaces and the set up / layout is ideal to keep everyone conveniently together and everything to run smoothly. The menu tasting confirmed that the food is also incredible - something that was very important to us as big foodies! There are a wide choice of menus available to choose from and the team also allowed us to be a bit flexible and include exactly what we wanted, which was really hard to come by when venue hunting. Our wedding manager left suddenly a week before our big day, which could have been a very stressful situation, but Martina seamlesslessly picked everything up and ran the day perfectly from beginning to end (our hero)! We were lucky enough to have snow on our wedding day, which made for the most amazing photos and really added to the magic of the day, but when this meant some of our guests were stranded for a few hours at the end of the night, Becca really went the extra mile to ensure everyone was warm, safe and comfortable - an usual situation that probably hasn't happened before, but still handled with efficiency and professionalism. The bedrooms are lovely and breakfast the next morning was delicious and a really nice touch. On a number of occasions we felt as though the Milling Barn team went way above and beyond for us, and we are so grateful. Although they do weddings day in day out, they made ours feel like the super special, once in a lifetime occasion that it was for us. We had so many compliments from our guests on the venue, food and staff / service so thank you to all of the team for an incredible day :)

The Perfect Venue and Perfect Day
The team at Milling Barn were fantastic from start to finish. All the elements of communication were hassle free and the day itself was absolutely perfect and everything we hoped it would be. A special mention goes to our wedding planner Lorca who was faultless and fun throughout the whole process. A fantastic venue we could not recommend highly enough. Thanks for everything.

Amazing venue
Book this venue if you are looking for a rustic and laid back look. Gemma in the event planning team was amazing at keeping everything running smoothly on the lead up and on the day so I really didn't need to worry about a thing. The food is amazing, all our guests commented on the evening pizza. Only sat marked down is because we weren't able to do a food tasting. Would thoroughly recommend the Milling Barn!

The perfect day!
From start to finish the team at Milling Barn make the process of planning a wedding so much smoother, I can’t imagine organising the entire thing ourselves! The simplicity of the website quote builder, and the ability to actually see which dates are available without sending an email told us from the get go that they know what they are doing! We had a few different members of the team support us through our planning process and all of them were extremely helpful. Martina was our planner for the lead up and on the big day and she had every detail and timing sorted for us, including making sure my train was perfect before walking down the aisle and producing sun cream for my husband when it ended up being sunnier than we expected! It was great to know we didn’t have to worry about any of the details on the day! So many guests have complimented the venue, which added to their enjoyment of the day. There was somewhere for everyone to be in the evening, whether that was dancing in Milling Barn, relaxing in the outdoor seating area, grabbing pizza from the stone bake oven or tucked up in bed, for the older relatives that had rooms on site. It was important to us that we had onsite accommodation and a dressing room for the bride as we don’t live locally - so this worked out perfectly. The only thing that would have made our experience even better would have been, being allowed longer before being off site in the morning, however, I completely understand why this needs to happen (for the rooms to be cleaned for the next wedding). All of our overnight guests managed the 9am check out and enjoyed the yummy breakfast. Huge thanks to the team - we honestly had the best day of our lives!

Wedding Venue - 19/08/2022
The venue was the first we saw and we immediately fell in love with its stunning setting and grounds - other venue visits after didn't compare. The staff from day 1 were so accommodating to all our needs and always so prompt with answering our queries we had prior to the day. Martina our wedding planner was amazing, she went above and beyond making sure the venue was set up so we didn't have to touch anything, and the day ran so smoothly we could just focus living in the moment. The food was amazing - we had so many compliments from the guests particularly the brownie and evening pizzas! We can't thank the team enough and wouldnt hesitate to recommend to any future couples!

Brilliant Wedding Venue
We had our day here in August after we originally booked back in 2018 but had to postpone by 2.5 years after being one of the early couples effected by the pandemic. We had a new coordinator, Martina, by the time our date approached as our previous one had moved on, and she was absolutely brilliant! She was so organised and accomodating, we had some ideas that we had been told previously in 2020 might be difficult but she couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful! She made everything really clear and concise which made it so easy knowing what was happening and when, which was invaluable for the other suppliers too. The day itself went really smoothly, we had to make.some last minute adjustments and although I'm sure it was a real pain for her as it was more work she was so helpful, made sure it was all sorted and was really kind about it all. The food was absolutely gorgeous, the timings went well and it was the meal of dreams so HUGE thank you to the incredible catering team, we had so many compliments on the food in the day and the evening! The rooms were also really beautiful and comfortable, with a lovely breakfast for everyone too. The staff on the day/night were just so lovely, everyone was so helpful, they made sure even when we had photos we had some of our canapes and drink too, we felt so looked after. They were an amazing help with setting up and packing things away too, we were a little worried it would be stressful but they really took all the anxiety out of it all, nothing was any trouble at all. Even down to the maintenance and housekeeping staff, everyone was chatty and so lovely and kind. The venue and grounds are absolutely stunning, the Oak Barn is absolutely breath taking for a ceremony and the space in the Dairy and Milling barns give so much choice for entertainment and what you can do for the day, I would highly recommend Milling Barn as a venue. A huge thank you to everyone involved in our special day, you truly made it a day to remember and were do grateful for all the help to ensure it ran smoothly.
