About

The romantic ambience of the wedding venue Bassmead Manor Barns in Staploe, Cambridgeshire, is apparent from the moment you arrive along the tree-lined driveway. Charming and elegant, this family-owned barn offers a heady combination of history and heritage, alongside contemporary style and exceptional service. Nestled within the medieval moat of an ancient manor house, couples seeking an idyllic escape will adore what this venue offers.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples are invited to tie the knot in the 300-year old Rickety Barn, a lovingly restored traditional timber barn with solid oak beams and wrought iron chandeliers. With twinkling fairy lights, it's the perfect space to say 'I do'. Seating up to 150 guests, it also features a 'nook' on the second floor, the ideal spot for a photographer or musician. After the ceremony has taken place, invite your guests to enjoy reception drinks in the modern Moat Barn with its sophisticated bar, spilling out onto the pretty landscaped gardens to mingle amongst the peacocks. The Bridge Barn is the setting for your wedding breakfast at Bassmead Manor Barns. Modern and flooded with natural daylight, spectacular features include a dramatic timbered ceiling and impressive oak doors offering views across the gardens and moat. A delicate, neutral colour scheme allows you to create your own style on a blank canvas, while its elegant simplicity needs little other than some beautiful floral arrangements to bring the outside in. The two barns become a spacious open-plan setting for your evening celebration as the sun goes down. It's time to dance the night away or perhaps enjoy the patio outside and wander into the starlit gardens. You won't want your magical day to end, so, with that in mind, newlyweds can spend the night in Dove Cottage – your very own boutique style honeymoon cottage. Appletree Cottage can be reached just over the moat bridge and features seven beautifully designed bedrooms for your closest friends and family. Enjoy a private breakfast the following morning, or greet your guests in Appletree Cottage to share stories of a wonderful day.

Services Offered

Bassmead Manor Barns will do everything to help you book with confidence. The dedicated staff would love to hear from you to begin planning your dream celebration. The on-site catering and events team will work with you to create delicious food for your wedding day. Menus are expertly prepared and beautifully presented, giving you and your guests a spectacular dining experience. Every element of the day is bespoke and tailored to your needs, from the more formal wedding breakfast, to theatrical street food, barbecues, canapés and cocktails.

    What a spot to tie the knot!

    We have had the absolute honour of being a recommended supplier for photography & video at Bassmead for several years, and it feels like a second home to us. The staff are incredible, and they just seem to have every part of the wedding journey covered form initial meetings, all the way through to getting their clients hitched! We have worked at many venues all over Europe and the attention to detail from the staff with our previous bride's and groom's has been second to none. Bassmead is one of those venues that just seems to tick every box. It's so obvious to us every time we visit how much the staff love working there and bing part of the Bassmead family, and this is so important when you're putting trust in someone and somewhere to cater for your celebrations. It's a stunning, rural location with beautiful scenery and incredible nooks, crannies, textures and shapes for pictures!! The food is outstanding and their customer service and welcoming atmosphere is second to none. We always look forward to working here, and always will. We cannot recommend this stunning venue highly enough.

    A rustic, all-in-one gem that’s full of charm

    What a venue. Our 9 month engagement became a nearly 3 year engagement, and Bassmead were there every step of the way. They were so polished and professional, but warm and friendly too. I knew I could turn up on the day and not worry about a thing. The food and drink were amazing (we certainly had a lot of clear plates and empty bottles!), and we had so many comments from guests about how beautiful the venue was. Bassmead was everything I could have asked for, a rustic, all-in-one gem that’s full of charm – and the best bit is it was right on my doorstep!

    Extra appreciation and thanks to Jenny – you really made our dream day come true!

    Nothing short of PERFECTION!

    I don’t even know where to start with this stunning venue! Bassmead was the first and only wedding venue that we looked at. The way they handled everything and treated their couples during the pandemic said enough about them, they made us feel like the only couple they had! And that didn’t stop once we had officially booked. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them.
    Getting closer to our wedding we were assigned our events manager which was Amanda and from day one she was just amazing! She reassured us with every concern we may have and didn’t care how many emails we sent with endless questions and last minute changes.
    We finally had our day on the 28th May 2022 and just wow! I gave my partner the job of setting up all our decor in the morning (and there was a lot!) he was so overwhelmed and all he had to do is say “Amanda I’m stressed” and she was like superwoman! She helped dress our wedding exactly how I imagined it and it was absolute perfection. She kept us updated throughout the day and made sure we knew exactly what was going on at all times. We got SO many compliments on how beautiful the venue was, not only how delicious the food was but how much of it guests got too (a lot!) and how attentive and friendly the staff were. I don’t know how they did it but the whole day just flowed so smoothly around us. There are no words to describe how utterly perfect our day was. If you’re looking to book your wedding day at this venue, then just do it, I can assure you that will not be disappointed!

    They're simply the best!

    We had our wedding at Bassmead in March 2022 and had the most perfect day. As soon as we viewed the venue we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate and everyone we met along the way at Bassmead helped make our dreams a reality.
    The setting and surroundings are idyllic and the venue itself (both the Rickety Barn and Bridge Barn) are so gorgeous you don't need lots of decorations as it does all the hard work for you. The food and catering was the talk of our day - we cannot fault a thing.
    And a huge thank you to Leah our event co-ordinator - she made sure the day ran perfectly to time and everything was set up exactly how we pictured meaning we could relax and enjoy every moment. I know it's a cliche...but the day really does fly by!
    If you're thinking of booking Bassmead - do it, you won't regret it.

    Amazing venue

    We had an absolutely perfect wedding day at Bassmead.
    Our guests commented on how good all of the staff were and how fantastic the food was.
    The day couldn't have gone any better. We felt so looked after all day by the staff at Bassmead.
    In the build up to the day they were easily contactable and were flexible in meeting all of our requests.

    I can't recommend Bassmead enough, just amazing!

    Made our day perfect.

    Got married here. Place is perfect, the team on site do everything to help, leah is amazing, helps with everything and couldn't do anymore to make our wedding the best it could be.

    Venue is very well maintained, they are on point with sorting everything out. Needs very little in way of decorations as looks perfect anyways.

    food is awesome, from taste to the way it's plated and the table service is very well planned out.

    Couldn't recommend enough. Well worth looking round if your thinking of getting married, you won't be disappointed.

    The perfect venue - the only venue you should choose

    What. A. Venue.

    Bassmead was the first and only venue we went to see after we got engaged and we instantly fell in love. We attended an open evening and we knew we didn't want to look anywhere else! From the moment we booked to our eventual wedding day, we could not have been better looked after. Amanda was our event manager, there really aren't the words to describe how incredible this lady is! No question was too silly or task too big. She made it her mission to make sure our wedding was the best day ever and it truly was.

    They worked with us every step of the way, from right up to our first wedding date being postponed due to lockdown, to finalising last bits and catering just a day or two before our wedding could finally take place, they really all went above and beyond and for this we will forever be grateful. The way Bassmead handled everything during the pandemic could not be faulted and if they could perform exceptionally like they did for us in the most trying of times, it demonstrates how truly special they are as a venue and what a special operation they are running here!

    Bassmead and in particular, Amanda, will always hold a special place in our hearts. It was a day we could have only dreamt about, the catering was unbelievable and the amount of comments we have had, from family and friends, praising the venue and all of the above speaks volumes.

    We will never be able to find the words to express how thankful we are to Amanda and Bassmead, but hopefully this goes some way to showing how blown away we were with the whole experience! THANK YOU!

    A fantastic personal touch and dedication to your day!

    I have been very privileged to have worked at Bassmead as a wedding photographer for a number of years now, and as a recommended supplier, I have had the opportunity to work with the excellent team they have multiple times.

    They are among the best in the business, nothing is too much trouble, and they will go above and beyond to make your day as special as it really should be. I really cannot rate them highly enough and I always get really excited about the prospect of working there with couples :-)

    p.s. the scotch eggs are simply incredible :-)

    Superb Wedding Day

    Bassmead Manor Barns is absolutely stunning. I had my wedding here and all of our guests commented on what a beautiful venue it was. In the lead up the staff were great at providing info and answering our questions and on the day itself they could not have been more helpful. All of our guests had a fantastic time as did we. A spectacular venue to host the big day. Also worth mentioning that their in house catering was incredible, again guests commented on what amazing food it was on the day. One of the extras we opted for was a Gin bar which was put outside in the sunshine and went down a storm. Incredible day

    June wedding dreams

    We had our dream day in June. We had a few hiccups along the way but the team at Bassmead made our day wonderful. The venue was decorated amazingly and the food was delicious. Our guests loved it as much as we did. The team made sure we did not go without all day. ❤️ It is the perfect venue.

    The made our wedding the dream

    Thank you so much to Bassmead Manor Barn for giving us such a dream wedding day. Verity and the team are incredible helpful and go the extra mile to make sure you are happy and have no worries on the big day. They where so helpful and answered any questions we had with all the uncertainty of the pandemic that surrounded the lead up to our wedding. The Bassmead bridal boudoir Is the most fabulous place to get ready In and having its own salon inside makes it so easy to have hairdresser and makeup artist making you look and feel beautiful. We got to have a first for an outdoor disco and a virtual zoom wedding and the tram at Bassmead made it so easier does us to achieve this. The rickety barn is the most mesmerising and such a lovely place to say I do it was beyond magical. The venue is so beautiful and so much to it. We had compliments from everyone who attended and watched the wedding. The in house catering food was incredible and the wine was the best. It was the best day of our lives. After our overnight stay in the honeymoon suite we didn’t want t leave this beautiful place we just wanted to do it again! Thank you again everyone at Bassmead Love Mr & Mrs Peters

    Wedding in 2019

    Everything was amazing, from the initial conversation to the day itself.

    A big thanks to Amanda, the head bartender, and everyone else. It was a great day with amazing food and table service. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could.

    Even now people tell me how it's the best wedding they've been to.
