The Thatch Barn Full Description
This magnificent Grade II listed, thatched barn is in the heart of the Cambridgeshire countryside where we offer tradition, tranquillity and a totally unique location for your wedding receptions. The barn itself boasts original 400 year old oak beams spanning the width of the building and emphasising the enormous vaulted roof, all adorned with fairy lights. The glazed oak entrance allows light to flood in whilst the slotted windows are all subtly glazed. We have even had a bar built from timbers taken from the roof that needed replacing! To top it all the stunning thatched roof, which keeps the barn cool in the summer, makes this a truly magical venue. Due to the size of the barn, the minimum number of guests would need to be 30 and we can seat up to 100 for the wedding breakfast. Set on a working farm, the Heritage award winning barn is situated beside crops of wheat, beans, lavender, wild flowers and daffodils, all providing a splendid backdrop for photographs, depending on the time of year you visit. Our modern facilities include a fully fitted kitchen, licensed bar and car parking.

Our dream wedding day
There are no other words to sum up our wedding day other than absolutely perfect! From start to finish Sanchia and her team were absolutely incredible - nothing was ever a silly question and she helped us so much on every step of the way including the planning process. I can honestly say I was a stress free bride! The Thatch Barn is the most beautiful venue and we can not recommend it enough. From the views, the beautiful barn and the perfect church location across the road (if you're thinking of having a church wedding, this is also ideal!). We had the most relaxed, beautiful wedding day all thanks to The Thatch Barn and could not have asked for anything different. Thank you!!

Our special day
I couldnt recommend The Thatch Barn more! Sanchia and the staff go above and beyond to make the day as special as it can be. They organised absolutely everything on the day/evening that we were just left to enjoy ourselves and not give anything a seconds thought. All of the guests had nothing but nice things to say about the friendly bar staff. The barn itself is beautiful it’s everything you can imagine and more. It’s simple, elegant and creates such a romantic relaxed atmosphere. We were given the opportunity to explore the grounds and take some amazing photos which also gave us an opportunity to escape and enjoy some bride and groom time. If we could do it all over again we would in a heartbeat!

Amazing venue and team Sanchia and the team are fantastic, we had the most amazing wedding day and that wouldn’t have been possible without Sanchia. With Sanchia also being a florist, it took away another thing to worry about. We couldn’t have asked for a better day! Thank you Sanchia and the team at the Thatch Barn!
