A contemporary barn wedding venue set in a haven of idyllic countryside; Mythe Barn offers an exceptional combination of traditional elegance with modern sophistication. Located on the borders of Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Leicestershire, the barns were converted in 2012, and each space is dedicated entirely to exclusive-use weddings.
Ceremonies can take place both inside and out, under the garden gazebo on a summer’s day, or in the spectacular Oak Barn. With an oak frame reaching up two storeys high, and full-height windows, this light-filled room can seat up to 150 guests for your civil ceremony. A perfectly positioned minstrels’ gallery is just the place for musicians, and for your photographer to capture some magical moments. The new bridal dressing room means you have a peaceful and light-filled space to primp and preen with your loved ones before you exchange your vows, just a few steps from both ceremony settings.
Welcome drinks and canapés can be served in the connecting Cart Barn or outside in the beautiful Courtyard, with delicious treats and exemplary service from the on-site catering experts. The contemporary Grain Store was designed with the wedding breakfast in mind. Floor-to-ceiling windows open onto the garden and views beyond, making this a wonderful setting for both summer and winter celebrations. Elegant décor includes stylish chandeliers and ceiling drapes, offering every couple a neutral colour palette upon which to impart their chosen style. As the sun goes down, this versatile space becomes your party venue with ample space for a band or DJ to entertain you and your guests.
Mythe Barn, pride themselves on offering delicious food, from the more formal wedding breakfast to casual evening feasts. On summer evenings, the impressive Outdoor Kitchen in the Courtyard can produce all manner of spectacular street food options. From wood-fired pizzas to sizzling wok food and mouth-watering barbecue, you can really treat your guests to something special. You’ll find a fully stocked bar in the Cart Barn too, just a few steps away.
As evening turns to night, your day doesn’t have to end. With that in mind, stables have been converted into seven luxurious en-suite bedrooms for your nearest and dearest. And for you, the sumptuous Hayloft Honeymoon Suite awaits with its lavish bed, exquisite bathroom and private entrance above the main barns. You may never want to leave!

I had a terrible experience with this Venue. Unfortunately, our wedding could not take place due to corona virus. Mythe Barn made this experience so painful. We no longer plan to have a big wedding as we feel so upset over the whole situation. Eventually we have been able to get a refund from Mythe Barn, but it took 3 months, numerous emails, phone calls, consumer rights service and eventually a solicitor. Mythe Barn fought us all the way on getting any kind of refund. They initially offered to move our date from a Saturday in April to a Weekday in September, due to the difficult situation we were tempted to accept this (despite the £4,000 difference in venue price between dates that we would not get back) however we requested a refund for some of the guest meals that we knew would no longer be needed (as we knew many people could not attend including my father and sister). Despite many emails and phone calls they absolutely refused this request. They then told us that if we did not want to accept the new dates (for late 2020) then we would be cancelling the wedding and therefore not entitled to any kind of refund. Since our wedding insurance did not cover ‘acts of government’ we felt so crushed. Eventually we had no choice but to hire a solicitor as we believed we were entitled to at least a refund on some of the meals as the venue had not incurred costs here. After numerous weeks, emails and letters, Mythe barn eventually agreed to give us a refund. (Even though the solicitor’s communications, said nothing we hadn’t already told them). They did however retain some money for costs incurred – in the region of £800 – they would not give us a detailed breakdown of why they kept this much other then to say it was the tasting event, Catering meetings , correspondence and event planning. I’m still upset that they will not explain why they have kept the £800, especially as we have incurred at least this to have a solicitor involved to claim back the refund we were so clearly entitled to. I feel for the couples who did accept the later dates for fear of losing all their money as they have now ended up stuck with a wedding so different to the one they had planned for so long. Eventually Mythe Barn did start offering similar dates for next year which would have been an acceptable alternative, if only they had offered that months ago it would of saved us so much heartache. I can’t begin to tell you how hurt we are over this whole situation and I still cannot believe the way Mythe Barn treated us.Sent on 26/07/2020

Great location and venue, however some guests sat nav will take then past the entrance so make sure directions are clear. Ceremony room (slate floor) was very spacious and allowed our 90 guests to be seated with no issues but in the summer months I would ask for the glass doors to be opened as it can get very hot. The courtyard and the new bbq section is great and allows guests to relax especially when in warmer months.. bar area is great but a little small, and prices are extremely high.. selection on beers is decent, no drinks are served before the ceremony. The main hall can easily cater for 100 guests with plenty of room between tables.. again in the warmer months I recommend that the doors be opened to allow some air in. Food service is ok however we had to wait along time for all tables to be served and change in menu orders for vegetarians can be difficult without notice. All in all the venue is very decent and the standard of food was excellent, the onsite accommodation is very good however the bridal suite has a strong smell of sewers and there is NO signal what so ever so make sure that ALL transport is organised before hand. I would definitely recommend this venue but make sure that your wedding organiser for the day communicates and make sure things run smoothly as we found ours wasn’t great. Also NO pets are allowed at the venue, not even on the grass area outside for pictures as we found out to our surprise.Sent on 05/05/2018
