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

Barnston Lodge is the perfect wedding venue. Jane is extremely professional, helpful and kind. She made sure that the the days running up to and our actual wedding day ran smoothly and did everything she could to ensure we had the most wonderful wedding reception. She even allowed us to bring our three dogs to our reception. We are so pleased with how our day went and cannot praise Jane and Barnston Lodge enough. A massive thank you for giving us the day we always dreamed of!

Thank you so much for everything you did

A huge thank you for providing such a lovely venue for our wedding reception on 2nd June. From the first time we met you, through all the planning and on the wedding day itself, you really could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We absolutely had the best day of our lives and we have had so many comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed it and our venue also. You worked so hard on the day and everything went absolutely perfectly, we really couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you so much for all of your advice, help and suport during the planning and leading up to our wedding and the big day itself. All of our guests said how perfect it was and it was a priviledge to plan our day exactly how we wanted it with our horses and dogs.
