You and your guests can take to the verandah overlooking the lake with a glass of bubbly and delicious canapés to toast your newlywed status. In the winter, the barn provides plenty of space to mingle with your guests while still enjoying the gorgeous views through the windows. As well as exclusive use of the Oak Barn, you also have the Small Barn to enjoy. This characterful space sits just a few metres away and is ideal for welcoming guests before your vows, entertaining younger guests, or for unwinding at the end of the evening.

    A perfect venue

    A gorgeous beautiful perfect wedding venue with just the right amount of space . The staff couldn’t have been any more helpful and made the whole experience from beginning to end so seamless. From planning the wedding to getting ready, the accommodation to the barn we held the ceremony and reception. Cannot fault it. Wish we could go and do it all over again just to experience everything again! Thanks for making our day so special!

    Definitely would recommend this venue!

    We had our wedding here on Friday the 22nd of March and we had so many comments about how gorgeous this venue is! When we visited the venue to have a look round we just knew this was the place we wanted to get married. It’s a hidden gem, beautiful, peaceful, relaxing and romantic. Plus all the staff and Top table are amazing!! Definitely would recommend this venue!

    Beautiful Venue, Amazing Team.

    What a beautiful setting for the best day of our lives.

    All our guests were wowed by the venue and everything was spot on. Trees and flowers out in bloom, sun shining, literally, perfect.

    The rooms were easily accessible for those staying, when stayed in, nothing but compliments, the breakfast the next day was brilliant, plus the views.

    What a day!! They made accommodating us easy, making us feel welcome and looked after before and after the reception. We can't fault one single thing.

    The team were fantastic, helped when we called, emailed and visited. Whole team, A stars for everyone

    What an amazing day we all had

    Just had our daughter’s wedding at wonderful Sandhole. What an amazing day we all had. The staff were amazing and the whole celebration was so incredible. We are so lucky that we had such glorious weather for the time of year which only enhanced the whole day. With food by Top Table and entertainment from Giilan Edgar and his band I could not have wished for a more perfect wedding day for our daughter and her new husband. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants something a little bit special.

    Beautiful December Wedding

    Just a quick message to thank you for the most fabulous day on Saturday. My daughter got married at Sandhole and the whole day was truly perfect. From getting ready together in the morning and the meal. It's really hard to single anything out as it was all marvellous. So many guests have commented on the beauty of the venue, the food (particularly those on special diets) and the excellent service.
    Sandhole Oak Barn is a very special place.

    Dream day

    What a privilege it is to be able make dreams come true. The people of Sandhole and Top Table were fantastic. The whole day was perfect and the logistics of the day went along seamlessly. We didn’t have to worry about anything. The day went on with staff doing everything they could for us. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you so much.

    We could not have had a more perfect day

    Sandhole Oak Barn was the first venue we viewed. The bar was set impossibly high, and we immediately returned to Sandhole after viewing only one other venue to confirm our booking. The staff are friendly, and all the staff we spoke to knew what we needed as they themselves had been married at the barn. Our guests loved the venue and the accommodation was fantastic. The breakfast was great and catered for various needs that ourselves and our guests had.
    We couldn’t have had a more perfect day, and Sandhole was a large part of this. Thank you to all the team at Sandhole! x

    Just stunningly perfect!

    I am the father of the groom.
    Our story started two years ago when the wedding was being planned. We were due to meet our son and ‘daughter’ on a Sunday as they were due to visit 3 potential locations. We intended to meet them at their last place. However, after visiting Sandhole second we received a call from them to say ‘don’t bother with the third, we’ve found our dream location.’
    Both sets of parents visited shortly afterwards and completely understood why.
    Since that time we visited several times to sort the menus, wine and everything else. It’s great how, despite how busy they were, the staff were only too willing to help. That also goes for Top Table too.
    The day ran like a dream and I can happily say it’s one of the best!
    We were also extremely pleased that Liz and Chris said it was perfect. And that’s the main thing.
    I couldn’t recommend the place highly enough. Thank you.

    We had the perfect wedding day

    We’d been to view a few different venues for our wedding but none compared to here. The view of the lake was just the icing on the cake for us. We had the perfect wedding day here on 28th August. Amazing venue and staff. Highly recommend to anyone still looking for their perfect location! Can’t wait to pop back on our 1 year anniversary

    And it really is something special

    As soon as we turned the corner and saw the lake we knew we didn’t want to get married anywhere else. Sandhole Oak Barn is stunning and we loved every second of our wedding day on Saturday 29th September. The staff were so helpful and friendly and it really is something special, thanks again.

    A dream wedding

    My husband and I looked at a lot of venues before visiting sandhole. We knew straight away it was the venue for us, such a unique private venue. A place you can leave in its rustic beauty or put on your own stamp. Our wedding day was perfect, nothing was too much trouble, the day ran so smoothly and our guest and ourselves were taken care of perfectly. The food was incredible. I cant recommend top table and the sandhole team Enough. A lot of the guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been too so it doesn't get much better than that!
