Full Description
Ash Barton gives you get the opportunity to celebrate your wedding in style and spend a few days with friends and family in an ultra-laid back yet luxurious surrounding. You’re free to organise your own bar and caterers with your own choice of suppliers at no extra charge. Ash Barton can also put you in touch with some fabulous local planners/co-ordinators to help you with the planning/on-the-day duties. There are numerous indoors and outdoor locations where you can get married including the old chapel, the walled garden, the threshing barn, the wildflower meadow and down by the lake under the the old oak tree. Then afterwards you can celebrate in the big party barn, which holds up to 200. The house itself is beautifully appointed with crisp white cotton sheets, warm duvets, big fluffy towels, huge squashy sofas and unlimited logs for the log burners. It sleeps approximately 45 but there's also plenty of space in the grounds to camp or glamp. And there's a 'camper pamper' facility with hot showers for your camping guests. There’s also a heated indoor pool and a huge, heated games barn with full size snooker and pool tables, a five-a-side pitch, trampoline, table football, badminton, table tennis and more. Ash Barton can be booked over the weekend from Thursday to Monday or Monday to Thursday. And as there are special rates for those midweek bookings, it’s possible to book an incredible wedding venue at a very affordable price.

You can truly make this your own and have the best day ever!
Planning a wedding and then having a pandemic really was a kick in the teeth but throughout the 9 months from booking to our date, we were looked after so well by Simon and the AB team. They make everything possible with reasonable arrangements and alternative options, was so flexible, accommodating and calming! Not only that he made all of our dreams come through with a Covid secure wedding. I can’t recommend this venue enough. The house is insane with great facilities and cosy rooms, fire places, and a great amount of character. The chapel is so charming and the barn has everything you need for a memorable reception. You can truly make this your own and have the best day ever!!

We will definitely be booking The Ash Barton!
We catered at Ash Barton recently and when our daughter gets engaged we will definitely be booking here for the wedding. Beautiful location with so many activities and facilities. Just a stunning location and super people on site to make your wedding everything you want it to be. So impressed by their absolute commitment to making people feel at home and to have their wedding of their dreams :) Not all venues are as relaxed and as welcoming to their guests. Thank you to the whole team for all your help :) from the How on Earth vegan team, Heidi Chloe & Dan :D You truly have a wonderful place!

The best wedding!
We got married at Ash Barton on Saturday 7 December. Its hard to summarise or find the right words to express just how amazing this place is. It blew us away from the first moment we found it online and then again when we went to visit. For our wedding, it somehow blew us away yet again! Tom and Pete are unbelievably helpful and generous with their time, going way above and beyond! If you're considering booking Ash Barton - do it! Everyone who came said it was by far the best wedding venue they'd ever been to. We would certainly agree! They let you create the day you want and we will never be able to express just how grateful we are for this! We're already planning a big anniversary party here to reminisce!

We can't recommend it enough!
We got married at Ash Barton in November 2019. We can't recommend it enough. The house and grounds are so beautiful and a truly unique place to call your home for the most important few days of your life! The venue is run by a team who have created something really special and support you to make it your own. Simon, Tom and Pete we can't thank you enough. Dan and Gen
