Winters Barns 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 and wedding breakfast barn both seat up to 150 guests, while the whole area can hold up to 225 for an evening reception. 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.

Couldn’t have asked for a better venue and team of staff!!
Winters Barns was absolutely perfect for our wedding. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was, and we really didn’t need to do much work to add our own extra touch. The team on site were also amazing. Sally our wedding coordinator was perfect, helping me and Sam from the moment we arrived until we was partying on the dance floor, plus the bar staff and other team members were so good, always ensuring we had drinks and were happy. Couldn’t recommend this venue enough!

Perfect day
The scope of the venue hit us straight away, with the rustic charm, high beams, hops and light cascading into the venue. We visited in October and it felt perfect for an autumnal wedding. We could visualise our day straight away, places that would be great for photos, etc. We were both sold on that being our venue almost immediately on walking in. The day was perfect. Sally kept things running very smoothly and answered all our questions.

Our first impression was ‘wow!’ - the barn is just so beautiful and had everything we wanted for our wedding. We wanted to get married in autumn and being in the UK, we knew the weather is so unpredictable so we wanted a venue that had a beautiful outdoor ceremony area but also just as beautiful indoor alternative which is exactly what Winters Barns have. They also had the layout we wanted; for the evening party we didn’t want guests to segregate too much.

Everything we dreamed of and more!!
I was blown away by how beautiful it looked, we looked on a sunny day at the end of march in 2022, a wedding was taking place that day so it was set up beautifully. I loved that everything was in one place pretty much and not disjointed at all, with there being young children at our wedding this was perfect. We chose Winters Barns because it ticked every box for us, accommodation was a major bonus for us as the farmhouse was also so beautiful. We loved the barn and also how beautifully landscaped the outdoor area was. It was just perfect. We loved every second of our day. The grounds I always found beautiful but on the day they looked stunning, with everything in place and dressed, it was a dream. The winters Barns team… I can’t fault anything. Sophie was great and so so helpful too. I actually felt a bit emotional when we were leaving the next day and saying goodbye as I felt like she had been so helpful and such a big part of it. Our day was everything we dreamed of and more!!

The most magical wedding
The planning process was made easy by yourselves at Winters Barns. Any questions we had, were answered within 24hours, and when we wanted to visit the venue again with other family members it was never a concern. The team gave us the most magical wedding that was better than we could ever have dreamed of. We couldn’t fault the day or the team. Many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been too and couldn’t believe how stunning the venue was. Sally as wedding coordinator was amazing and was a huge part in ensuring everything ran perfectly, keeping us on time, yet making us feel incredibly special. It was a lovely, fun and relaxed vibe for the day, which is just what we dreamt of. Words can’t really describe how grateful we are to you all, and happy we are, we just wish we could relive the day all over again in slow motion. Thank you to you all.

I want to do it all again!!
We completely fell in love with the venue and booked it there and then, before we'd even left the premises. The venue is obviously beautiful, but we were impressed with the slickness and experience that clearly comes with being a sole wedding venue - you are experts in what you do. All your staff have been fantastic. Super quick and efficient at answering all my queries in the lead up to our big day and having Sophie come on board in the final few months was just fantastic. Everything has been explained really well to us and I never felt worried in the lead up to the day. AMAZING!!! Sophie was just brilliant from start to finish - there when I needed her, but never in my face and she just knew what we wanted at every turn. The little touches such as putting the gifts and some cake in our room at the end of night were just perfect. No wonder WB is such a popular venue - I want to do it all again!!
