We have been hosting weddings, parties and theatrical events in our wonderful 19th century barns for over 20 years but have rarely advertised. Most of our couples come to us through word of mouth or by stumbling on our website www.combemanor.com.
We have recently redecorated and lightened the palette of the interiors which shows up the antique beams, and the tapestries can be left hanging for a decoration or removed to create a blanker canvas.
We help you organise civil ceremonies in the barns or religious ceremony in the 12th century chapel next door. The 17th century manor house and gardens can be used for photography and there is a beautiful bridal suite available for the bride and her entourage to prepare in before the big event.
Our family-run team do all we can to ensure you have a special day and entirely personal to you... you are free to access the space for several days beforehand and can come to collect your things up to a couple of days afterwards... no "conveyer belt" style functions here!
Our boutique venue is truly exclusive and best of all is the location: uninterrupted views of the stunning, rolling valley of Combe with no sound or sight of roads nearby... and only 25mins from Newbury or 90 mins from London! We can advise you with caterers/bar staff/florists etc so that you can tailor make your own event according to your own budget. More information is on our website or you can follow us on Instagram @combemanorbarns. Please call to arrange a visit, we look forward to showing you our unique venue.

Covid wedding made perfect...
My wife and I got married here June 2021 amid the restrictions imposed on us by the pandemic. 18 months in the planning, we were determined to get married even if it was only 28 of our nearest and dearest with us. Combe Manor could not have provided a more idyllic venue. They were flexible in the booking, supportive of the vendors and on hand throughout our big day. I cannot speak more highly of a venue that needed very little decoration and spoke for itself in its stunning setting and beautiful building.Sent on 20/06/2021
I would not hesitate to encourage anybody to go and see the venue and speak to the owners (who are second to none) as I firmly believe, like us, you will fall in love with the place and end up celebrating your big day as we did.
Thank you Sybille and her team for making our day as magical as possible and for giving the best advice on vendors, layout and decoration from your vast experience.
Combe Manor Barn's reply:Thank you so much David for putting this into words and I am so thrilled that your wonderful marriage and day shared with friends and family went so well. We will never forget that sunny day when we could all start celebrating again! You are a lovely couple whose positive and relaxed attitude will stand you in good stead in the future. All the best x

Incredible experience - if I could give 10 stars I would!
The most amazing wedding venue! Beautiful barn in the middle of stunning countryside, amazing owner who has been incredible during Covid 19 - we are yet to have our reception but we have felt extremely lucky to have such a kind and flexible host - we can't wait to celebrate there one day!Sent on 15/06/2021
Combe Manor Barn's reply:Thank you Becci! It was such fun getting to know you and Charlie and your enthusiasm for Combe was lovely. You will be most welcome to celebrate with all your friends and family one day (anniversary party?) ... I'll have the 8th August pencilled in for you..!

Beautiful wedding venue inside and out
Combe Manor is a beautiful wedding venue and I knew when we went to look at it for the first time that it would be the perfect place for us to get married. It’s great that you can have a few days to prepare before hand as this takes some of the stress away and all the facilities are on site already. Sybille is always on hand to provide support and guidance which really helps to make sure you have all that you need on your special day. Sybille went above and beyond to make sure our day ran smoothly. All our guests commented on how lovely the venue is. Thank you so much.Sent on 19/09/2021
Combe Manor Barn's reply:Thank you so much Katie! I really appreciate your lovely words and hope you and Iain have a long and happy marriage ahead... keep in touch!
