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.
Bassmead Manor Barns are delighted to announce that their doors are open again for you to visit. To arrange your private showround, speak to the team on 01234 860006.

On the day... everything was PERFECT! When we arrived in the morning to the bridal boudoir, the cleaner popped by and told us to just enjoy the day and not worry about tidying!! He was so lovely!
Amanda then helped the day to run perfectly! She made sure that we had food and drink throughout the day and kept checking on us!
The food was delicious!! Beautifully presented and tasted amazing!! People haven’t stopped talking about how good that steak was.
We would recommend this venue 100%. We wish we could do it all over again!!
