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.

A beautiful venue for a perfect day!
Lains Barn is such a beautiful venue and we had such a fab day!Sent on 20/09/2021
Rachel & Nigel were absolutely fabulous throughout the planning process and nothing was ever too much trouble…even throughout the pandemic when they were super busy.
They allowed us to create our dream day and everything went exactly to plan without any worry.
Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue and the food went down a treat! Thanks Lains Barn!

What an amazing day! We booked Lains Barn before Covid and like many others our wedding plans were significantly disrupted. Amongst all of the stress of the changes in restrictions communicating and rearranging with Lains Barn was far the easiest of all. We were always given options and they could not have been more accommodating. At one point, Martin ( the owner) even offered for us to get married at his house at Barton House! The events manager, Rachel, was always on hand to respond to emails morning and night and made the process so easy.
The venue itself was beautiful and they allowed for full flexibility in making the day as personal as we wanted it to be. The food and drink was exceptional and this was commented on by all of the guests. The service we had throughout the day was incredible and we couldn’t fault any of our experience from start to finish.
We feel very fortunate to have picked Lains Barn as our venue particularly during such a challenging time and we would recommend it to anyone.Sent on 27/08/2021
