At Barley Wood we understand that each wedding is individual to each couple. We do not have packages to offer, but instead prefer to allow each wedding to develop into what you’ve always dreamed, with or without our help or with your wedding planner. In this way we offer an exclusive and bespoke service in the grand yet intimate surroundings of Barley Wood and its grounds and woodlands.
We only allow one wedding or accommodation booking per weekend, which maximizes access to the house and garden during the build up to your wedding on the Friday. This also relieves a lot of pressure on yourselves during the planning and preparation period, and allows you to further enjoy your special day. We don’t charge any further fees for the use of Barley Wood – there is no corkage charge (restrictions apply), no ceremony fee, no minimum number policy, and no additional service charge. We offer the flexibility of using your own suppliers or our highly recommended ones.
We operate our venue on a flat fee basis.
The House is limited to 100 guests for the ceremony and formal wedding breakfast, however if you’re expecting a larger number than this there is more than enough space for a marquee in the garden for 200 guests. Evening receptions can be held for up to 175 people using the whole house.
We would be delighted to provide you with any further information that you require and we look forward to being able to show you around the house and grounds in person- The setting is truely spectacular and deserves a visit!

The venue its self is an amazing space so pretty. It was so refreshing to find a venue that would allow us to have it our way. would could have the food we wanted and decorate the way we wanted. The staff were so accommodating with multiple visits to the venue before our big day so we could sort the planning. On the day they helped with the organisation so they and our responsible member of the family sorted all the little things so we could just enjoy our day.Sent on 11/12/2020
Barley Wood's reply:Thank you so much Kat for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you and Nick had a great weekend with us and we still have fond memories of your day especially the Pagan ceremony on the lawn! It was stunning. All the best, Holly and the team at Barley Wood.

Very special venue
I stumbled across Barley Wood after working on the bar at a wedding and I am so glad I did. After taking my now husband for a visit we knew it was the perfect venue for us. The house, accommodation and grounds are beautiful and the staff are so helpful. Special thanks to Holly and Tracey for you organisation in the run up and Tracey for being on hand throughout the weekend to ensure everything ran smoothly. I love the flexibility that the venue offers, being able to bring in our own decorations, suppliers and extra touches that other venues sometimes don’t allow. And being able to stay at the house for the weekend made it so special for us and our families. Thank you again to barley word and all the staff!Sent on 16/12/2020
Barley Wood's reply:Thank you Sophie! You were such a beautiful Bride and Groom inside and out and we thank you for your kind words. Tracey thoroughly enjoyed being there for you on the day and I enjoyed helping with the planning and providing the venue for your special weekend.

Absolutely stunning location for this awesome place to be. With accommodation and a couple of rooms to make the most of for the whole weekend. The price for hiring this place is great which supports the YMCA in the local area. The staff are friendly from start to finish and professional throughout the day in assisting and being on hand. With such superb grounds to walk around there is so many photo opportunities for the couple to be away from the guests too! Even the guests loved the place! You get to choose the suppliers you want to work with and are not limited to on site other than the bar! Would recommend to anyone looking to get married in the area.Sent on 11/12/2020
