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.

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.
Venue Service

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

By Gillian, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Feb 2019

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
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.

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
Venue Service

By Lisa, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Nov 2018

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

The whole experience was fabulous

What beautiful place to have your special day. Went to a beautiful wedding and the whole experience was fabulous, the staff the location and the food was lovely

Just stunningly perfect!
Venue Service

By Graham Bower, on 19 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2018

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
Venue Service

By Emily, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2018

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
Venue Service

By Louise, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

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.
