About Sandhole Oak Barn

A34 Manchester Road, Hulme Walfield, Congleton
Cheshire, CW12 2JH

For rural bliss and a delightful rustic escape, this breathtaking barn wedding venue in Cheshire is the perfect place to celebrate and is exclusively yours for a truly bespoke day.

With rolling fields all around, Sandhole Oak Barn feels miles away from anywhere yet is easily reached, making it the ideal place for any country-loving couple to hold their big day.

The traditional barn stands proud beside the peaceful lake and surrounding greenery. The oak beams and frame offer an authentic feel while floor-to-ceiling windows let the light flood in. Sandhole Oak Barn is wonderfully versatile and can be divided into two parts for the different aspects of your day. Tie the knot in the Ceremony Barn with views of the lake behind you and celebrate in the Dining Barn, which can accommodate both intimate and larger weddings with ease.

For something truly different, hold your ceremony under the majestic Oak Clock Tower just a few feet from the lake. There really is nowhere else quite like it.

Take to the verandah overlooking the lake with a glass of bubbly and delicious canapés to toast your newlywed status and soak up the tranquillity. In the winter, the barn provides plenty of space to mingle with your guests while still enjoying the gorgeous views through the windows.

The natural beauty and neutral décor of the Dining Barn make it a flexible and inviting setting for your wedding breakfast and reception. Throw open the French doors and let the summer breeze drift in, or create a cosy atmosphere in the colder months with underfloor heating and fairy lights to decorate. Whatever the season, the lake and surrounding countryside create an enchanting backdrop throughout your day. Award-winning caterers and wedding coordinators, Top Table, will ensure a stress-free wedding day and a wide choice of mouth-watering menu options for you to treat your loved ones to.

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.

As day turns to night, steal a few moments together as a married couple and watch the sun setting over the lake from the verandah. It’s the perfect way to let your special day sink in at this unique Cheshire wedding venue.

Exclusive use of a gorgeous Dressing Room, spacious bridal suite, and extensive award-winning luxury accommodation is also available on-site through the separate Sandhole Farm B&B for you and 39 guests in their beautifully restored stables.

Beautiful December Wedding
Venue Service

By Jacqui Binns, on 27 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Dec 2018

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.

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.

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.

A dream wedding

By Mr & Mrs Morris, on 23 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2018

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!

Keeping it short and sweet.. it’s the best place to get married in my opinion with the great old fashioned style barn and rooms that we stayed in.. great if you’re and old soul like me and the misses with fantastic staff they’re willing to help with anything you need and not to mention the brilliant scenery surround the place.

Venue Service

By Ashleigh, on 04 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Dec 2017

Sandhole Oak Barn is the most beautiful wedding venue we had ever seen and it took us about 5 seconds to decide we wanted to get married there. The lake and surrounding area are gorgeous so you will always have beautiful wedding photos and the staff are lovely, friendly and welcoming. Unlike some other venues we never felt that the staff were being pushy and they were never too busy to answer our questions. We had an amazing day at this perfect venue, thank you! Mr & Mrs Thorpe

It was the perfect venue
Venue Service

By Emily, on 04 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Oct 2017

We had the most amazing wedding day on October 8th at sandhole oak barn. The venue worked perfectly with our theme it looked stunning. Everything went so smoothly from when we first booked our wedding to the end of the wedding. It is a shame you will no longer be using sue Le Bonne as a caterer anymore as that was a big part in why we chose sandhole and how amazing their food was was one of the main things all our guests commented on. It was the perfect venue and we can't thank you enough!
