The brick haybarn is a bright space, with a charming and stylish interior, high vaulted ceilings and huge doors opening onto a private terrace.

Cannot wait to spend our weekend here

Our second viewing of Marshwood Manor as a venue and we love it! So many different areas for your big day to take place, from the woodland ceremony area to the barn, gravel courtyard and bar. You can tell the entire development has been a passion project of Romla’s and she is equally passionate about providing the best service possible. The cottages are incredible and we definitely can’t wait to spend our weekend here.

I can't speak highly enough of Marshwood Manor as a wedding venue. Our families from two countries were able to be together but have their own space in the six cottages. We walked through a field of wildflowers and into the woods to the little chapel where the brides were married, lit up by dappled sunshine. The bar and reception area were like something out of a magazine--in fact, a magazine had done a photo shoot there earlier in the week. Romla has renovated the old buildings with excellent taste and attention to detail, and she brought that same care to organizing the wedding itself. We really appreciated her warmth and professionalism for what could have been a hectic and stressful occasion. She worked with my daughter for over a year to bring about the wedding she had envisioned, and the result was a meaningful, inviting, and colourful occasion that we will always remember with great fondness.

We loved having you here for our very first wedding! So glad you had such a fantastic weekend and that we kicked off with two such beautiful brides and their fun-loving families.
