Absolutely amazing venue
What can I say, our day was perfect from start to end. All went so smoothly thanks to the team. We had lots of meetings, calls and emails prior with our wedding coordinators to ensure our day was just as we wanted it. Couldn't have asked for better

We would highly recommend to everyone!
We were looking for somewhere low budget, intimate and unique and that is exactly what we got! The minute we saw the oak barn we knew it was the venue for us. From start to finish the staff were so welcoming and helpful and they really felt like part of the wedding. Communication was great and they were more than happy for us to amend things along the way. On site accommodation was perfect too as we had guests travelling across the country. We would highly recommend to everyone!

Emma & Stuart Wedding 21st August 2022
We had our wedding at The Plough on the 21st Aug 2022. The venue is stunning and the new orangery was perfect for pre - drinks. The canapes, wedding breakfast and evening food was out of this world. Everyone commented on how amazing it was. The staff from start to finish were unbelievable, the initial planning was so good and all staff are so experienced in guiding you to make everything perfect for your day. On the actual day I literally didn't have anything to do apart from turn up, they made the day seamless and there were no hiccups. All the staff are so down to earth and made sure me, my husband and guests were comfortable and happy all day. Can't thank them enough! Emma & Stuart

If your thinking of getting married then I highly recommend the plough, great value for money . We picked a package they had on at the time and it suited us perfectly for the amount of people we had . Thank you so much to the plough girls gabs and Laurie and everyone else who made our day so perfect !! The attached photos were taking from our photographer Paul wellburn ( recommend him aswell) .
