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 from June 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!

An unforgettable event at a beautiful venue.
We had an absolutely fabulous time, even better than we had hoped / expected! Everybody at the barn were exceptional and given the challenges we all faced in the run up to the wedding I cannot praise you all highly enough for putting on such an unforgettable event at a beautiful venue.

The best day ever!
From the minute we walked into The Tythe Barn, we knew it was the venue for us. The aesthetics are stunning and we were made to feel so welcome from day one. Having postponed our wedding of 100+ in May to a wedding of 15 in December due to Covid-19, we were unsure of how this small wedding would feel. The Tythe Barn worked so hard to comply with government guidelines but also to ensure our wedding felt like a wedding! Their communication and positivity were faultless throughout such a stressful time. Our wedding of 15 was perfect! Laura guided us through each step of the day and, together with Joe, they gave us the best day ever! We can’t recommend this venue enough!

The most beautiful rustic barn
The Tythe Barn Launton is as elegantly rustic as a barn can get. It is kept pristine by its staff and the pride of its owners. A barn that will always remain classically beautiful. I have worked at the Tythe, many many times and there's no other venue like it. Its warm welcome by the lovely people, all the rustic wood, the vintage milk churns, the perfectly kept grounds for amazing pictures and socialising. The place I work at and feels like home. I am a very proud recommended supplier that I hope to be part of, for many many years to come. Well done team x

Fantastic venue
From photo-video couple working point of view, we absolutely love the Tythe barn! We photographed a couple of weddings in the barn and we loooove it so much. Such a beautiful venue makes our work a lot easier. Working with the team is an absolute pleasure too and we're always very excited to go back. Totally recommend!

One of our preferred Venues to work with
The Flower Fairies love working with all the team at The Tythe Barn. Aside from the fact that is the most gorgeous Barn what makes it special is the people. We are never made to feel like just a supplier but part of the overall team and that we all share the same passion to do whatever it takes to make our couples dream day come true. Its very much a family affair and are so welcoming to all. Having worked with them for over 15years now there is a great understanding of what works well in the venue but they are always open to new ideas and working with all parties to make it happen. I couldn't recommend them enough!

One my of fave venues to photograph!
I love barn weddings, the vibe and the look of a rustic setting with loads of twinkling fairy lights really helps me to produce amazing photos for my couples, The Tythe Barn really takes this to the extreme and it always looks absolutely stunning. Photographing a wedding here is always such a pleasure, stunning setting, top notch service, all the staff are so friendly, I always look forward to weddings here!

My own, of course - (my husband would kill me if I didn't say that!!)
