About Barley Wood

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 week, which maximizes access to the house and garden during the build up to your wedding. 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, although each booking has an individual price depending on which areas of the house and grounds are to be used and for what.

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!

    Beautiful Venue

    What a special find! We first saw Barley Wood on a murky day in December at a Christmas Market they were holding and we knew straight away that it was the venue for us. The spaces work so well; we opted to get married indoors and the orangery/garden room was perfect for this. The bedrooms are fantastic, especially the first floor ones, and were a huge selling point. We really enjoyed being able to host our families for two nights.
    Tracey, Amie and Gary were all incredibly helpful, nothing was too much trouble but equally they were great at melting away and leaving us to it.
    It was brilliant to feel like this was 'our house' for the weekend, if only we could have stayed longer. I wish we could do it all over again!

    It is incredibly beautiful and magical

    We first visited Barley Wood on a cold January day, and straight away knew it was a special place. Amie made us feel welcome, and we went away knowing it was the place for us (despite it being the first venue we visited!)
    It is incredibly beautiful and magical. You have everything you would need for your wedding, and more!! Our whole weekend was incredible and we have so many special memories and hope there will be opportunities to always return to Barley Wood.
    However, what really makes it are the staff and values. We loved that it was run by the YMCA and it didn't feel like a 'wedding factory'. Amie was so helpful, all the way through and her and Tracey were an amazing help. They really can do anything! Gary was fantastic on the day, making sure everything ran smoothly and was all in the right place.
    I could go on and on! Barley Wood will always be an important place to us and we hope it never changes!

    Thank you everyone!

    A very heartfelt thank you to all the staff at Barley Wood for helping to make Carolyn and Chris's wedding the most spectacular weekend. Gary, thank you in particular for all your help and for always being at hand in the background if anything was needed. I'm so sorry for waking you to find out where my car keys were! All the guests told me how kind and helpful you were and it was fascinating to hear some of the history of the building.
    We hired Barley Wood for 3 days and it is the most immaculate, beautiful, perfect place for a wedding celebration! Some of our guests, best men and the Groom stayed over and were extremely comfortable in your beautifully refurbished rooms and bathrooms to die for! Other guests were in tents on the lawn! We were able to decorate the house as we wished, cooked in the kitchens and felt very much at home there. All our guests and the Bride and Groom had a wonderful time! Thank you.
    The Italian garden was the perfect venue for the barbecue on Sunday and the views are spectacular.
