The romantic ambience of Bassmead Manor Barns in Cambridgeshire is apparent from the moment you arrive along the tree-lined driveway. Charming and elegant, this family-owned barn, nestled within the medieval moat of an ancient manor house, offers a heady combination of history and heritage, alongside contemporary style and exceptional service.
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 on to 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 gives you the opportunity 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 on-site catering and events team at Bassmead Manor Barns, 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.
As the sun goes down, the two barns become a spacious open-plan setting for your evening celebration. It’s time to dance the night away, or perhaps enjoying the patio outside and wandering in to 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. For your closest friends and family, Appletree Cottage can be reached just over the moat bridge and features seven beautifully designed bedrooms. Enjoy a private breakfast the following morning, or greet your guests in Appletree Cottage to share stories of a wonderful day. Welcome to Bassmead Manor Barns.

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.

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!Sent on 01/07/2021
