We had the best time!
Venue Service

By Vicky & Jonny, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Dec 2019

Just a quick email to thank you and the team for doing such a great job hosting our wedding last Saturday. We had the best time and all of our guests were completely in awe of the venue. Also Amanda was absolutely fantastic all weekend, we didn’t have to worry about a thing and she was so lovely and friendly and really made us feel so comfortable. We couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have run our day. Please pass this on to her as we are so grateful.

Amazing weekend
Venue Service

By Peter and Sonia Rodgers, on 18 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Nov 2019

Our daughter Amy and her groom, Chad were married here and what an amazing venue. The cottages were filled with family and guests and they were cosy and comfortable. The whole pace looked wonderful and the staff could not have been more helpful, working hard to ensure everyone had a great time. Our family and friends were very impressed with the venue and the chosen menu which was vegetarian, was amazing. Thank you for making their special day a truly memorable experience for Amy, Chad and all their guests.

Can not fault the service!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Aldridge, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Nov 2019

We had an amazing time on Saturday and can not fault the service everyone at Doxford Barns provided on our big day. We are on honeymoon now but please be assured we will be putting nothing but good things on your social media as the day was fantastic. Thank you again for all the work you done and the work your team put in.

So so
Venue Service

By Grant Bowater, on 13 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2019

The venue is ok and the accommodation is ok my main bit of advice is to watch how much you are being charged at the bar because despite having a list of the bar prices we were charged nearly treble the price we paid for a drink at 2pm compared with buying the same drink at 8pm at which point the bar staff just created there own price list and then to make things worse a guest that I was with was charged £2 for a slice of lemon for her gin and tonic.

The chef for fixing the damaged cake was amazing.

By Gabriella & Mads, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2019

Everything was seamless
Venue Service

By Craig Birnie, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

We booked a 3-day wedding & got married 8th June 2019. The cottages were spotless and really well equipped, we had a great time in them on Friday night after decorating the venue. We can't fault Abi, Gemma or any of the staff at our wedding - everything was seamless on the day and communication running up to the weekend was brilliant. All our guests raved about the food and the venue itself - we have to agree! In the evening when it cleared up our guests loved the outside spaces and the fire pits.

I would recommend Doxford Barns to any coup
Venue Service

By Gemma Robinson, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 26 May 2019

We got married at Doxford Barns a couple of months ago (only just figured out how to leave a review ??) and we had the most perfect day! I cannot thank the staff enough for all their help both in the run up to our wedding and on the day itself! Everything went so smoothly and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Big thanks especially to Ellie for answering my endless emails ?? The venue itself is just gorgeous and I still can’t get over how amazing the threshing hall looked as I walked down the aisle. The cottages are so beautiful too and we loved that we could have a three day wedding and extend the experience with our closest family and friends. I would 10000% recommend Doxford Barns to any couple!

Definitely the best day of our lives!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Murphy, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

My husband and I had the most amazing wedding weekend here at doxford barns, all of the staff were amazing, the venue was stunning and our wedding day couldn’t have ran any smoother! Definitely the best day of our lives! Wish we could do it all again!

The venue itself is GORGEOUS!
Venue Service

By Ami Matthews, on 22 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Mar 2019

Absolutely phenomenal. The staff are incredible and took such good care of us. The food was top notch and guests are still talking about it! The cottages were beautiful and well catered for - even had milk, tea, coffee and treats for all guests. The venue itself is GORGEOUS! People said ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘Harry Potter’ ‘magical’ ‘fairy tale’ ‘perfect’ ‘rustic’ and so much more. Our entire wedding from Tuesday through to Thursday was seamless and we owe it entirely to the staff at Doxford Barns. Claire, Gemma and the team were all incredible and I cannot recommend them enough. They made our wedding the ‘wedding of the century’ (or so says a very happy guest)! Thank you so much from a very happy newly wed couple.

A Magical Experience
Venue Service

By David and Kate Greenwood, on 26 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Feb 2019

We knew that we wanted to get married in a rustic, rural setting, and after looking online we thought Doxford Barns would be perfect, We went for a viewing, and were delighted to discover that the venue looked exactly as good in real life, so we decided on a date and made a booking. The staff at Doxford barns - especially Claire, our wedding coordinator - were very helpful in the lead up to the wedding. They accommodated all of our requests as fully as possible, kept us informed, and allowed us to make last minute changes to the guest list. A particular highlight was our menu tasting, which left us both extremely full and very confident that our guests would be blown away. When the wedding itself came around, the service we received from Doxford Barns stepped up. There was always somewhere there to help us, but they also gave us the space to make the whole event our own, Everything ran so smoothly on the day, and that's all thanks to how well organised they are. The venue was just as lovely as when we first viewed it (lovelier, in fact, thanks to the addition of a light tree in the Threshing Hall), and the whole event was so easy for us. Having the cottages on site was also really great, as it meant we could spend more time with a lot of our closest friends. A final brilliant surprise was that when we woke up the day after the wedding, all of our decorations had been carefully tidied away and easy for us to load up, making our departure very smooth. We are not planning to get married again, but if we did, we'd come back and do it all the same!
