About Barnston Lodge

Parsonage Lane
Barnston, Gt Dunmow
Essex, CM6 3NZ

Barnston Lodge, Essex, is the ideal venue for a wonderful marquee wedding reception. With a stunning Georgian mansion in the backdrop and magnificent surrounding grounds, the tranquil venue is a timeless example of rural England – complete with surrounding paddocks, grazing horses and farmland.

As a family home, all guests to Barnston Lodge are made to feel relaxed and welcome from the moment they arrive. When you hold your wedding here, you will have exclusive use of the grounds for the entire day. Yours will be the only wedding taking place on the premise, allowing you and your guests to have a superb, private celebration.

Originally a cart lodge, the ‘Brew House’, complete with a large open fire, offers a ‘quiet room’ for some of your guests to relax in during the evening festivities. In addition, a variety of games can be arranged to take place on the lawn for your younger guests, while you enjoy the enchanting atmosphere of Barnston Lodge.

You can place the marquee wherever it suits you, offering you the unique opportunity to pick your own view. Barnston Lodge is a photographer’s dream; the backdrop of the lovely Georgian Mansion, glorious lawns and rose garden provide a delightful setting for your photographs. The lake, a haven for wildlife, is home to ducks and guinea fowl and boasts a charming jetty, ideal for photos. Unique aerial photographs are also available.

We have approved local wine merchants and caterers, but you are more than welcome to plan this yourself. We can also provide some guide prices for your catering on request. We do not insist that you use our own suppliers, and we do not charge corkage. We have even known guests to drive straight from Calais to Barnston with their wine requirements. Your wine can be stored in our cellar until you need it.

For more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

• Exclusive use available • Peaceful and secluded setting • Access to a private lake and jetty • Over 100 rooms available locally, from budget motels to Country Hotels • Conveniently located between Chelmsford and Stansted, within a short distance from A12, M11 and M25

Sending you the biggest thank you we are capable of!! Barnston Lodge was the most perfect venue, and you were more helpful and accomodating than we could have hoped for from a reception venue. All our guests have told us how wonderful your gardens were, and the photographer has been so complimentary about you that I think he would like to be your go-to photographer:) We cannot tell you how over the moon we are with the way everything turned out, and we really are so pleased we found you!!!

A very big Greek wedding thank you!
Venue Service

By Koulla Eleftheriou, on 04 Apr 2012

I just wanted to say a very big Thank You to you and your husband for Stephan and Louise's wedding. They chose well in their quest to find the right place. They could not have found a more perfect venue. Everything went so smoothly. It was such a happy day and it was made possible by your attention to detail even down to the Cypriot flag, which made us feel very welcome. This was my first marquee wedding and I didn't know what to expect, it was picture perfect. I wouldn't have wanted it to be anywhere else. Thank you for making their wedding day so special June 2011
