Full Description
In these unprecedented times we are all having to re think how we work/ live and look after each other. We have been working closely with our couples to find them suitable dates to move to. We have spent the last week as a team working out what we can do for our present couples and future couples in need of a venue at short notice. We are on the phone and on email throughout these uncertain times to help answer any questions and navigate through the next few months. Once we are able to get back to work (which we will) to show couples our lovely Barn we will let you all know.

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!

Our wedding
Whilst we’re not married yet due to COVID the team at the barn have been outstanding with sorting out moving dates and making everything as stress free as possible. The barn and the grounds are absolutely perfect and we are so excited to have our day!

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.

The Barn at Alswick is such a special place
he Barn at Alswick is such a special place ?? The venue was great for us as it’s not only gorgeously renovated but also disabled friendly. Ellie was great when we were planning our wedding, always replying to emails quickly and helping our ideas come to life. Ellie, Kay, Claire and the team were superb on the day, so calm and reassuring, we knew we were in safe hands! We loved staying in the glamping pods too - so comfy and the honeymoon suite is stunning ?? So many of our guests said how much they loved the venue and the chilled day. We can’t thank everyone at The Barn enough, we had the most special day! X

I instantly knew i wanted us to get married here!
As soon as I walked into this beautiful venue and explored the stunning gardens, I knew it was the right place for our wedding. It really offers everything all in one location. Ellie was wonderful throughout the planning of the wedding and was always available to answer any questions and offer advice. A huge thank you to all the staff at the Barn for making our wedding so memorable for us and our guests!
