You made me feel very special
Hi lovely Monkton team, I'll send a proper 'thank you' soon but I just wanted to say that we had such a wonderful time and your staff were absolutely exceptional. Everyone commented on how lovely the bar staff were in particular, and thank you to the lovely bartender who kept providing me with alcohol free G+Ts the whole evening, before I'd even asked! Made me feel very special! 🙂 Every element was dealt with so well, the food was amazing and everyone was so impressed with the venue. So a big thank you from us! It was exactly what we wanted.

thank you so much for your hospitality
To Peter and the team, thank you so much for your hospitality. We had such fun planing our day and felt quite at home here by time the wedding rolled around. James supplied us with some fabulous food and we will always remember our tasting session, as it was our first 'night out' away from our newborn baby. Gabriela was so relaxed and efficient and made us feel confident that she had everything under control. Peter was so friendly and really sold the excitement of the day! Our guests loved the beautiful meadow and the impressive olive tree in the courtyard! The day turned out better than we could have imagined. Thank you again - and we hope to see you again soon for a lazy Sunday lunch! Lucy & Daniel (and baby Penelope)

BEST DAY EVER
Dear Peter, Wendy, Gabriela, James and all the team at Monkton Barn, Thank you all sooo much for your hard work and lovely welcoming, generous and warm service. We had the BEST DAY EVER yesterday at our wedding. We can't thank you enough for calmly steering us through the pandemic and crazy weather forecast leading up to our day. In the end it was so perfect. We had so many compliments (so, you really!!) about the beautiful venue and the amazing food. I wish we could do it all over again! Can't wait for Wendy's photos.

The day was perfect for us...
We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special – from start to finish you have all been so helpful and relaxed. The day was perfect for us and you all worked so hard to ensure it ran seamlessly. Eloise, thank you for being so positive, smiley and helpful – even at 2am when I am sure you would rather have been tucked up in bed! Thank you so much.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A civil ceremony in the barn, then across to the meadown for a village-fete styled reception with garden games, canapés and a saxophonist. This was followed by an Italian-themed marquee wedding breakfast. In the evening, a total of 140 guests returned to the meadow for a full-on festival themed party, including a big top marquee and staging for not just one, but 4 bands who performed over the course of the night! The event finished with fabulous fireworks, camping/glamping - and for our campers; a hearty breakfast the following morning! It was a truly brilliant and fun event to be part of.
