Lains Barn is an idyllic wedding venue in the heart of rural Oxfordshire. A magnificent listed barn set within Its own spacious grounds and the rolling countryside just behind it.
You will have exclusive use of the whole barn for your special day whether it's for both a civil ceremony & reception or reception only. This includes the stunning main barn, the covered outdoor byre - complete with festoon lighting, a large indoor byre with its own custom- built bar and a large lawned courtyard. This unique space has great versatility and works fabulously for weddings throughout all the seasons. In Autumn / Winter the barn is cosy and well heated and in Spring / Summer the large glass barn doors can be opened directly onto the lawned courtyard. The courtyard is perfect for lawn games, canapés, barbecues, photographs and music.
The Lains Barn team know that the food, drink, and service are every bit as important as the venue itself. Taking a tailored approach to the food and drink, mix-and-match menus are available. The team work with local suppliers to provide the highest quality food and drink.
Lains Barn has retained its beautiful original features including rustic beams, a unique wood tiled floor, an old manger- ideal for floral displays and a quirky grain-store which is a popular photographic backdrop.
The location whilst picturesque and rural is within easy reach of the M4 & M40 motorways, or it is a 10 minute taxi ride from Didcot parkway train station, with trains to London taking just 45 minutes. What’s more, there is plenty of car parking and nearby accommodation.

We had the most amazing wedding day and this was replicated in the feedback from our friends and family. All our guests said it was one of the best weddings they have been to. The staff were great, nothing was a problem. Nigel and Katie and all the staff were so helpful. The food was great and again had so many compliments from guests. We had a wonderful wedding at Lains Barn.Sent on 12/02/2016

The perfect wedding venue
Lains Barn is perfect. We fell in love with the barn as soon as we saw it for the first time. The setting is gorgeous, the staff helpful and friendly, the food delicious and all of our guests loved it. On the day, the staff worked so hard to ensure that everything went perfectly so that we could relax and enjoy our big day. We really can't praise Lains Barn enough - they made our day so special.Sent on 23/08/2018

Perfect Wedding Day
Firstly I want to say a massive thank you to Lains barn for all their hard work which made our wedding day perfect. The barn is beautiful and has such a lovely cosy and intimate atmosphere. We arranged to look around and Martin was really helpful, and you could really tell he took pride in the venue. We booked really far in advance and I had a lot of questions but Rachel and Clare were so knowledgeable and helpful answering them all, we really felt that they made the process much easier for us.Sent on 11/01/2018
When we came to set up all the staff were brilliant! We had a lot of stuff but the decorations that are already in place are beautiful and really compliment the barn, you could definitely get away with not adding anything! The barns Christmas Trees also looked incredible.
The day was absolutely perfect and ran so smoothly, the staff worked directly with any suppliers and we didn’t need to worry about anything. Every part ran seamlessly into the next, and the work put into switching the room over from ceremony to meal to evening was fantastic. It looked amazing, and the food was incredible, the portions were great, everyone was completely full! The staff were great at providing for our vegetarian guests and anyone with allergies. In the evening there was lots of space for dancing or sitting down, as well as in the bar area if people wanted to sit and chat, we had lots of compliments from our guests on the venue and everyone had a great day.
I would absolutely recommend Lains barn. The whole day felt personal to us, with everything we could’ve wanted. It’s a beautiful venue that really adds to the atmosphere of your day to make it special.
