Full Description
Whether you are planning an intimate civil ceremony, or a more lavish, opulent reception, Winters Barns offers versatile function rooms to accommodate all your requirements. The L-shaped barns, with the ceremony room at one end and the reception room at the other, mean that you can enjoy a wedding at the venue whatever the weather. The ceremony room in the smaller section of the two barns can seat up to 150 guests, while the reception room seats up to 200. After the ceremony, while you are enjoying your drinks reception, we will clear the ceremony room to make way for the couple’s first dance and the party can really get started! We believe a wedding should remain completely private and we limit ourselves to one wedding each day. You can be assured of getting our personal and individual attention without any distractions.
