Full Description
The traditional barn stands proud beside the peaceful lake and surrounding greenery. Oak beams offer an authentic feel while expansive windows let the light flood in. Sandhole Oak Barn is wonderfully versatile and can be divided into two parts for the different aspects of your day. Tie the knot in the Ceremony Barn and celebrate in the Dining Barn, which can accommodate both intimate and larger weddings with ease. For something truly different, hold your ceremony under the majestic Oak Clock Tower just a few feet from the lake. There really is nowhere else quite like it. Take to the verandah overlooking the lake with a glass of bubbly and delicious canapés to toast your newlywed status and soak up the tranquillity. In the winter, the barn provides plenty of space to mingle with your guests while still enjoying the gorgeous views through the windows. The natural beauty of the Dining Barn makes it a flexible and inviting setting for your reception any time of year. Whatever the season, the lake and surrounding countryside create an enchanting backdrop throughout your day. Award-winning caterers and coordinators, Top Table, will ensure a stress-free wedding day and a wide choice of mouth-watering menu options for you to treat your loved ones to. As well as exclusive use of the Oak Barn, you also have the Small Barn to enjoy. This characterful space sits just a few metres away and is ideal for welcoming guests before your vows, entertaining younger guests, or for unwinding at the end of the evening. As day turns to night, steal a few moments together as a married couple and watch the sun setting over the lake from the verandah. It’s the perfect way to let your special day sink in at this unique Cheshire wedding venue. Exclusive use of the Dressing Room, spacious bridal suite, and luxury accommodation is also available on-site through Sandhole Farm B&B for you and 39 guests in their beautifully restored stables.

Definitely would recommend this venue!
We had our wedding here on Friday the 22nd of March and we had so many comments about how gorgeous this venue is! When we visited the venue to have a look round we just knew this was the place we wanted to get married. It’s a hidden gem, beautiful, peaceful, relaxing and romantic. Plus all the staff and Top table are amazing!! Definitely would recommend this venue!

What an amazing day we all had
Just had our daughter’s wedding at wonderful Sandhole. What an amazing day we all had. The staff were amazing and the whole celebration was so incredible. We are so lucky that we had such glorious weather for the time of year which only enhanced the whole day. With food by Top Table and entertainment from Giilan Edgar and his band I could not have wished for a more perfect wedding day for our daughter and her new husband. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants something a little bit special.

We couldn’t have had a more perfect day
Sandhole Oak Barn was the first venue we viewed. The bar was set impossibly high, and we immediately returned to Sandhole after viewing only one other venue to confirm our booking. The staff are friendly, and all the staff we spoke to knew what we needed as they themselves had been married at the barn. Our guests loved the venue and the accommodation was fantastic. The breakfast was great and catered for various needs that ourselves and our guests had. We couldn’t have had a more perfect day, and Sandhole was a large part of this. Thank you to all the team at Sandhole ! x
