Good venue and OK accomodation
Venue Service

By Varun and Ann, on 02 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2018

The majority of the staff are excellent. The planning and organisation was remotely hassle free, MB have preferred suppliers. 1. Accommodation: There is no food options at the venue, but you can try a local pub. The rooms were clean and well made up and the staff member looking after us was brilliant. In hindsight they not good value. The breakfast consisted of stale croissants, not enough cups/milk + mini cereal. This is what a basic continental breakfast consists of but for rooms starting at £100 a night we should have stayed at the travel lodge, saved about £600 and had a better breakfast. 2. Morning of the wedding: other couples being shown around. Unattended at times, in the accommodation. 1 person pushed the partition to enter the bridal changing room where my wife was getting ready saying “oh we are just looking around”. They even went into the main room. 3. Honeymoon cottage: as point 1, not good value, wedding finishes at 12, you take all of your possessions to the cottage and have to be checked out at 10am, you will probably spend the whole time asleep after your wedding day. £240 with the same breakfast (point 2) overpriced. 4. Morning after: again all of our items and possessions are packed back into a car and then dropped off at the venue. Been easier to leave things in the venue instead of ferrying to and from. Evening room has been cleared and anything you bought in is dropped/thrown in an outdoor room. Photoboards were bent, items missing. Katherine dropped us off assured us everything was there then disappeared. Bouquet was missing after many email exchanges was posted back to us. Obligations were complete from MB so we had to be gone is the vibe we got.

Perfect Place
Venue Service

By sean and emily, on 20 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2017

I hope you've had a good week so far. Emily and I wanted to extend our immense gratitude to everyone involved in making this day the best of our lives. That is not said lightly. We truly had the best time ever, as did all of our guests. Throughout the process you've all been so helpful and made it such a smooth process, for which we are very grateful. We've had so many lovely comments about the barn from our guests - the word perfect has been used quite a bit! They've all said that the barn was the perfect place for delivering the great atmosphere it did, and we couldn't agree more. Also, thanks for dropping in a card, that was unexpected and really brought a smile to our faces.

our 3rd wedding anniverasary
Venue Service

By lisa and nicholas, on 20 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2017

Dear, all the staff at Maidens Barn Thank you for letting us visit on our 3rd anniversary, you was so welcoming and it was so lovely to come back to visit. We chose Maidens barn for our wedding venue in 2014 and fell in love with the place from its rustic feel to the friendly team of staff. It had a feeling that we didn't get from any other venues. The barn is beautiful and the grounds are so picturesque the other big plus for us was that we were the only couple getting married and it's yours for the day. Coming back 3 years later we discovered several changes that make the barn an even better venue for hosting a wedding! The new ceremony room is beautiful and an improvement from what was there, the bar has also been made bigger (who doesn't want a bigger bar). When we got married in 2014 in house accommodation wasn't available at the barn (one of the few drawbacks at the time). Now they are building a whole new accommodation wing in an adjoining barn which will transform the barn into a complete venue - it will be amazing. In fact we almost wish we was getting married again! Thank you again for making us feel so welcome we walked out with massive smiles on our faces. Lisa and Nicholas

such a beautiful place
Venue Service

By michaela and james, on 20 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2017

Dear Maidens Barn, A little delayed, but we wish to send our thanks to you for such an amazing day on 12th August for our wedding. The staff have been absolutely wonderful from the start and we knew we had found the right place for us after our very first meeting. Carol has been fantastic at keeping us organised and everyone on the day helped make it effortless and very special for us and our families. We were also very touched to receive your lovely card. Maidens Barn is such a beautiful place and a lot of our guests commented on this too. It will always be a favourite place of ours, having met there and now married there. Thank you so much for everything you have done. Michaela and James Cross

Food outstanding, helpfula nd accomadating
Venue Service

By val morris, on 20 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2017

Further to my husband's phone conversation earlier last month I wanted to write to express our thanks for the most amazing wedding that we held at your venue, 5-8-17. Prior to the event Jessica was always given the best of attention in all her communication and never felt that anything was too much trouble for you all. The actual day was wonderful. This was our third daughter to be married in two years so we had a good idea of what we wanted and what to expect. You certainly surpassed all expectations. Every member of the team was so helpful and accommodating, the food was outstanding and we really appreciated the way in which you spoke to us throughout the event to check on the proceedings. We have one more daughter to go, but unfortunately she will have to go elsewhere to marry and your very high standards are going to be hard to beat. I notice that you are expanding and providing accommodation on site. I wish you all the very best in your new venture. Don't lose the amazing service that you already provide! With regards

I need to say a massive MASSIVE thank you for giving us the best wedding day we could of ever wished for. Every little girl grows up wondering how their wedding day will be and mine last Sunday was the most perfect I could of dreamed of, far exceeding all of my wishes and wants and then some Your venue is by far the most perfectly stunning one we could of chosen. We had, and have had since, SO many compliments! Even people saying its their perfect wedding venue! So many lovely comments. They way it is presented and decorated and its as beautiful as it could be. Its like a little hideaway from the world int he grounds and so stunningly beautiful inside. Also, I've never been so greatful for air con ?? hottest day of the year was tough going in a tight dress and the poor guests in their suits!I can not thank or praise your staff highly enough! It doesn't feel right to call them staff because of just how friendly and well they fit in on the day, makes them more than that. The lovely ladies who delivered the food and cleared the tables were all so happy and friendly, I just cant get over how everyone was. The bar staff were great too. I cant praise Juliette and the caterers enough. They couldn't of done more to make it any more perfect. The food was amazing, and all of our guests raved at just how lovely the food was, especially the sausage and mash.
