The most amazing day!!!!
Myself and my Husband booked this venue back in 2018 due to get married 25/04/20. However, just like many other couples out there we had to postpone due to Covid. After many dates and even more postponements we were finally able to tie the knot on 10/07/21. And what a magical day it was! All through the postponements and rearranging, Mark and Clare were on hand to help and answer any of our worries. We hired the venue the day before to decorate and again all staff that were on hand to help were amazing!!!! The whole day from start to finish was an absolute dream! All of the staff, Mark, Clare and Amelia were just fantastic and our guests couldn’t stop complimenting the waiting team :) The bridal sweet was the perfect touch too!! They do absolutely anything they can to ensure it is your perfect day and we really can’t thank you all enough!!

A perfect wedding day
Really lovely day and everything went as planned. Mark, Russell and the team at swallows Oast put in so much effort to making sure we had a perfect day, we cannot thank them enough and couldn’t have asked for more! A beautiful venue from the oast to the bridal suite, a wonderful team and amazing food! Would highly recommend them.

Beautiful Venue Come Rain or Shine
Well where do I start?! We finally married at Swallows Oast on 4th June after it being the 3rd date due to covid having meant our plans were cancelled twice. Mark and the team were INCREDIBLE. Nothing was too much for them when rearranging and were so relaxed with us and our plans etc. It made a confusing time so much easier. The venue is stunning and with a blank canvas I was in my element when it came to the decor. Mark was so laid back and just gave me the go ahead to basically do what I wanted. I couldn't have asked for more. Having the bridal suite to get ready in and for the night of the wedding was just the perfect touch. They have thought of everything, beautiful modern decor to the hanging rails being high enough for a wedding dress. The staff were great, attentive and always around when you needed. Russell's food is out of this world.... Everyone is wanting to go back just for the food!! We cannot thank you enough for hosting our wedding day.

Absolutely Perfect Day
From the day we booked, through confusion of covid and all the way to the wedding day Mark and Russell were so great. The venue was beautiful and perfect and the food was incredible, we got so many compliments on the food! I can't recommend this venue enough and my only advice is definitely book the bridal suite, getting ready there was so much fun, it made the morning after so much more relaxed and it felt like our honeymoon started early.

May wedding 2021
We cannot thank Mark and the swallows oast team enough for making our big day as amazing as it was! Mark has been absolutely super, after 3 date moves, short notice changes (it absolutely chucked it down) and tons of questions we finally got married in May! All of our guests commented on how beautiful the barn is and how tasty the canapés were. The bridal suite is absolutely gorgeous as well, everything you could need for the bridal party. As many couples will sympathise it wasn't exactly the day we had imagined but it was an extremely special and intimate day, which we wouldn't have changed! We look forward to hopefully celebrating some wedding anniversaries at the barn in the future.
