My husband and I (!) cannot recommend The Barn at Alswick highly enough. We had to postpone our wedding due to COVID, and the team gave tremendous support over more than two years from our first viewing to our wedding day. They really were amazing through some very tough times, and always gave the reassurance that nothing was too much trouble, and that everything would turn out just fine. We couldn't have dreamt of a more beautiful day - and so many of our friends and family commented on how stunning the setting was. Everything seemed to run so smoothly, which meant that my husband and I - and our guests - could just relax and enjoy ourselves. From the big things (like arranging for our drinks reception to be held in the private gardens), to the small touches (like offering me a glass of water when I was melting on the dancefloor!), we felt in very safe hands. Go and take a look - and if your heart skips a beat as you travel up the driveway like mine did, book it just as soon as you can. You won't regret it.

Amazing service from the loveliest people
The Barn is a gorgeous venue and from our first visit, we have always received amazing service. Ellie is looking after us and our wedding and has been fantastic throughout, especially during lockdown. She has helped reassure us and been so accommodating in moving our dates. It’s so difficult for everyone so it’s lovely that Ellie has been so kind to us and understanding throughout. I would absolutely recommend this venue, it’s so stunning and has extremely supportive people working there!

It was the best day of our lives
Hi Kay and all the Alswick team! Where to start - we are so thankful we chose your wonderful Barn at Alswick to hold our special day. You and all of the team were absolutely faultless from when we arrived to set up on Friday until we left Sunday morning. Andy and I felt so supported, guided and gently directed through trickier / scarier bits of the day which we really appreciated and needed. Nothing was too much trouble. You had everything under control and orchestrated all our suppliers brilliantly, so the day went better than we could have ever hoped. You are such a professional yet warm and friendly team. It was the best day of our lives and we’ve been blown away by how many guests have told us how much they loved our wedding, and the stunning Barn. Our mums said it was one of the best days of their lives. This means the world to us and you played a huge part in making it happen. We want to come back to do it all again. We wish you all the best for the future and hope the Barn gives you and your husband many years of success. Thanks again, Anna & Andy

If I could score higher than 5 stars, I would!
Had our wedding here in Feb 2020. Ellie, Kay, Claire and all of the staff could not do enough for us. They really made sure the day went smoothly and I couldn’t have asked for anything more from them. Huge shout out to Ellie in particular who was INCREDIBLE. We had lots of guests travelling from outside Hertfordshire who (when seeing the address) made a few comments about how far it was. When they arrived everyone said, ‘We can see why you picked the venue!’ Everything was perfect. The changeover from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast was so smooth and wasn’t noticeable. The views are beautiful and I cant wait to see the professional photos. Cant recommend this venue enough!!! The catering options were amazing- I recommend the BBQ sharing boards! I recommend visiting an open day if you are considering this venue. This was how we first saw the venue and were very impressed with how welcome the staff made us feel. There isn’t a corporate feel to the place which we found at other venues. The glamping options also impressed us as did the bridal suite. If I could score higher than 5 stars, I would!

Highly recommend holding an event here.
We had our wedding reception at The Barn at Alswick and it was excellent. From the planning to all they did on the day it was brilliant. Ellie was so helpful and really cared about how the day would run. She interacted with all the suppliers (food, band, flowers) to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Highly recommend holding an event here.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

All of our weddings have been amazing but one of the most exciting things we have seen is having one of our brides perform a trapeze act as part of their drinks reception- in her beautiful wedding dress! The groom was also part of the evening reception and that played throughout the evening so there was a fab atmosphere.
