About Childerley Long Barn

Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for considering Childerley Long Barn as the possible venue for your wedding day. 

Here we are in Spring 2020 and we find ourselves in unprecedented territory.  Covid-19 continues to have a big impact, but we are working with our 2020 couples, talking through options, and being as flexible as possible to find alternative dates either later in the year or in 2021.

For those just starting to plan your wedding, rest assured we are following government advice, and we have good availability for 2021 and beyond.  As of 16 May, we are happy to arrange showrounds, following all Covid-19 Guidelines, but we are finding that a conversation with you prior to your visit really helpful, as it allows us to explore your ideas and talk about how Childerley can meet them.

We are a small, dedicated and experienced team, and are on hand to offer advice and support to help you realise your special day.

Childerley Long Barn is just 20 minutes from historic Cambridge and sits in the beautiful grounds and gardens of Childerley Hall. The Long Barn and the adjacent outside courtyard offer a fabulous informal setting for weddings with its stunning versatile space.  There is also the additional option of using the romantic gardens for your reception drinks or for photo opportunities.

Thought to be one of the longest timber-framed barns of its type in England, the Long Barn provides separate spaces for wedding ceremonies and reception, usually accommodating anything from 60 to 180 guests, with 80 - 120 being our average.The Long barn can also be transformed into an intimate space for smaller numbers, but it is also a fantastic space for larger numbers, with the absolute maximum being 320. 

Food and drink are essential elements of any wedding.  We work with a variety of excellent catering partners, each of whom can offer a variety of bespoke menus. They offer a superb front of house service, ensuring your day runs as smoothly as possible. We also recognise that on some occasions a specific type of cuisine is required and in such cases we would be happy to discuss the option of outside catering. 

Childerley provides you with exclusive use on the day and allows you access the day before to add your own touches, ensuring you’re not rushing around on the morning of your wedding. 

As of 15 May, we are resuming viewings, restricted to two visitors and following all Covid-19 advice and requirements. Please do get in touch and we will send you some information and would be very pleased to talk to you about your wedding plans and ideas.

We have good availability in 2021 and beyond, and have some availability in autumn/winter 2020.

Have fun planning!

    A completely perfect venue for a perfect day

    Childerley was the first venue we looked around. We fell in love with it immediately, and we could never top it. It was completely perfect. The orchard, the gardens, the barn - it is all gorgeous. Planning a wedding with the team there was a pleasure - they were responsive, helpful, and were genuinely committed to making it OUR wedding, not a cookie cutter day in any way. They perfectly managed the day itself. We couldn't have had a more wonderful experience, or a more perfect wedding day. Thank you to everyone at Childerley for their hard work, and for their kindness and consideration. We only wish we could marry each other again to we could have another wedding here!

    Beautiful barn for a Rustic wedding

    Childerley barn is the picture perfect location for a contemporary, rustic wedding. All our guests just fell in love with the venue. The venue offers so much variation for the day from the quirky chapel, to beautiful gardens and the lovely barn. The gardens offer such a beautiful backdrop for the photo shoot. The barn with the fairy lights, creates a magical ambience. Jocelyn, Emma, Clara and rest of the team are very helpful and supported us right from the day we decided to go for childerley to the wedding day. Jocelyn coordinated with all suppliers and our band on the day of wedding to help us have the day stress free and to enjoy.
    Also we had the barn available on Friday for the decoration and Sunday for a post wedding photo shoot which made things at ease for us to organise.

    Perfect Fairytale

    Childerley Hall has all you could possibly need for a perfect fairytale wedding.

    From the stunning old English gardens, to the lake, and the beautiful and accommodating long barn itself - the venue offers a relaxed and interesting flow from one stage of the day to the next.

    Andrew and I just fell in love with Childerley and found it to be both a relaxing environment for ourselves on the day, as well as an exciting space for our guests to enjoy themselves. Joss and the team are nothing short of the perfect hosts and organisers, we barely had to consider a thing.

    So if you are after a quintessentially English setting you can tailor to almost any event needs, I cannot recommend this one enough. Only wish we could do it all over again.

    Oh, and it makes for the most STUNNING pictures in any weather!
