Full Description
We do many events here at the barn but weddings...they're our 'thing'. We are pretty lucky to have such a professional team of chefs as our in-house caterers but we are also fairly confident that, having done a few, we know how to put on a good wedding. We listen, we sit down and talk and we are really passionate about getting it right - for you. Every wedding is different and that's what keeps us alive. Tythe provides you with a blank canvas upon which you can create the wedding day of your dreams. Corny? Okay, but it's true and we are a small, friendly and dedicated team who are here to help you every step of the way. Arrive with us in the morning and do the whole thing in one place, ceremony - indoor or outdoor, food - whatever you want and party - a civilised affair or a rave. The choice is yours... and if you can't bring yourselves to leave, then new for 2022 we are thrilled to be able to offer you our beautiful farmhouse accommodation available for a two night mid-week break or an entire weekend! It has seven double bedrooms, including a bridal-suite, two large reception rooms, a dining room, country kitchen, open fires, a tennis court, a wonderful wood-fuelled hot tub and there's an adjacent Shepherd's Hut with sleeping for two, all right next door to the barn! For more information on our barn and accommodation please head over to our website: https://www.thetythebarn.co.uk/stay/

Incredible - Blew us away and completely surpassed our expectations
The Tythe Barn completely blew us away on every level possible. From Tori helping us plan & manage our day, to the Farmhouse accommodation, to the caterers - absolute taste, to each and every one of the individuals working on the day 7 everything in between. They have the most incredible team who made sure that everyone attending the wedding from the night before to the morning after wanted for nothing. Tori, Jess, Joe (bar) & Joe in particular are a HUGE asset to Tythe. Their service & attentiveness was just incredible & anything anyone needed or wanted was managed with ease & with a huge smile on their faces. It honestly felt like they were a part of our celebrations & not just doing their job which was beautiful. The facilities themselves were incredible. The farmhouse was where we spent a lot of our time & honestly it was amazing! It was pristine, clean, smelt great, the kitchen facilities were stunning & the note for every couple in each room on the bed on arrival was a real nice personal touch. We didn't unfortunately make use of the hot tub because of the freezing temperatures & we couldn't use the tennis courts either which was a shame so I can imagine anyone having a warmer/drier wedding would have an absolute blast with these! The gardeners keep the gardens immaculate which was also noted by all. The word we used when we came to view this venue for the first time & a common theme amongst all our guests was that the venue looks & feels truly magical. Especially at Christmas time with the fairy lights/branches & Christmas tree. The food. It was... INCREDIBLE. Absolute taste (Tythe's caterer) were just a dream. They understood the kind of menu we wanted to go with which was a relaxed fusion of our English & Indian heritage & our favourite foods... A banquet of burger sliders, chips & curry - what more could anyone want?! Our guests could not get enough & neither could we. We loved the food tasting so much that we took advantage of catering the night before the wedding at the Farmhouse too & yet again Absolute taste delivered with some delicious pasta dishes & cheesecake for our special guests. They are absolute gems when it comes to catering for dietary requirements too. They made our niece her very own gluten free cake for her Coeliac disease & on the wedding day ensured anyone with allergies had their very own portion specifically for them so they didn't go hungry. They ensured canapes on the wedding day were brought out hot (which is difficult to do for 130 guests) & they were all over rotating the room to ensure everyone got to try everything. We had breakfast cooked for us both mornings by the lovely Jess who put in incredibly long hours to ensure we all had a fab time and as mentioned previously, she really felt like a part of our weekend as opposed to just working. The cocktails also deserve a shout out - we had a cocktail hour & a Gin bar which everyone really enjoyed. The Tythe work with some fab suppliers - we booked our music entertainment & celebrant via their recommendations & they were both awesome and really added to the laid back/fun day we wanted to achieve! Everything on the day ran to plan & Tori was all over every element. Nothing felt like a chore with planning & we completely trusted her with running our special day & allowing us to really bring our personalities to the day whilst applying her suggestions & expertise. We had feedback from a lot of our guests to say this was the best wedding they'd ever been to & looked like something out of a magazine. Nit & I truly had the most magical day and we honestly would not have changed a single thing if we had the opportunity to do it all over again. Anyone getting married at The Tythe Barn in 2023 will have THE most incredible day if it was anything like ours & you won't regret it :)

The best day of our lives
The venue, the team, the food, the attention to the detail - everything at Tythe Barn is 5 stars. All our guests have said what an amazing wedding it was. Jack and I truly had the best day of our lives. It surpassed all our expectations. On the day, everything went perfectly with Tina and Joe ensuring each and every transition from one moment to the next was smooth. Absolute Taste provide fantastic catering. We also stayed in the farmhouse over the weekend, which is honestly the most beautiful house I have ever stayed in. Thank you a million times for the most amazing celebration of our marriage.

A wedding that dreams are made of
From the first enquiry and visiting the open day, communicating with the Tythe team was truly sublime at every interaction. You could not imagine for a more experienced, reassuring and warm group of people if you tried. Huge shoutout to Tori who was just our rock through the whole planning and event, we could not have done it without your expertise and professionalism! We chose to stay in the Farmhouse and take advantage of the Weekend Wedding package new to Summer 2022 and it was just the weekend of our dreams. From the moment our guests arrived on the Friday they all fell in love with the setting and decor of the farmhouse just as much as we did. The highlight was the bridal and groomsmen preparation area and the bridal suite, just gorgeous. Every piece in the farmhouse is so carefully curated and the care truly shows. The whole venue is yours for the weekend, supported by a wonderful team of staff, present, but unobtrusive, on hand to prepare meals and assist with enquiries. The Main Barn, is such a beautiful canvas that, if like us you don't opt for a hugely overdecorated theme, the backdrop speaks enough for itself and envelops you in warmth even if not majorly dressed. Our pictures were gorgeous taken all over the grounds of the venue, with lots of photo opportunities, even in an Autumnal/Winter wedding like ours, the pictures look just as radiant and opportune as a Summer wedding. The food prepared by Absolute Taste was incredible, our bespoke Barn Feast was raved about by our guests for months after. A combination of wonderful people, a beautiful setting and a truly exlusive venue made this the wedding of a lifetime for us, we will remember it so fondly, and be on cloud 9 from the happiness it brought us, forever more.

The perfect venue!
What a magical venue, perfect for our autumnal fairy lit wedding. The Farmhouse to stay in is beautiful and perfect to be on-site, lovely addition to have the bridal suite half way to the venue and the venue itself offers everything you could possibly need. A wonderful relaxed atmosphere yet elevated and wedding perfect. The team are really friendly and supportive throughout the process and on the day. Can't thank Tythe enough!

The most perfect day
Our wedding day at Tythe was perfection and honestly, we could not have asked for a more amazing day, surrounded by the people we love. Tori and the team at Tythe were faultless - everything ran like clockwork, without us ever feeling under pressure. The venue was utterly beautiful and the farmhouse completed our experience, giving us the run of the place for the weekend. We really couldn’t imagine our wedding being anywhere else!

The attention to detail is immaculate.
The venue is absolute luxury. The attention to detail is immaculate and Tori the wedding coordinator managed absolutely everything whilst always remaining calm with a smile on her face. My suppliers commented on her professionalism and helpfulness.
