Facilities and Capacity
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 in front of you and celebrate in the Dining Barn, which is idea for wedding breakfasts and evening receptions for 40 to 140 guests. The lakeside Dining Barn offers a cosy atmosphere in the colder months with underfloor heating. For something truly different, you could hold your ceremony outside under the majestic oak Clock Tower just a few feet from the lake. You and your guests can then take to the verandah overlooking the water 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 stunning views through the windows. As well as exclusive use of the Oak Barn, you will 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 with your nearest and dearest at the end of the evening.

A perfect venue
Tai yed our wedding day
and the outstanding surroundings and fell in love with it as soon as we viewed it. Unfortunately, I wish I had gone elsewhere to the issues we had with them before the wedding day and on the wedding day.
Family members and my husband were spoken to quite rudely by one of the staff members that worked there, we were also unable to get through to them for various days as we needed to ask them a question regarding the rooms. This then made us feel that we could not ring them due to their attitudes which is unacceptable for a wedding venue.
The rooms are very small and need work doing to them. My parents staying in a room where the window was faulty and the wind kept on banging the window open and shut so they had no sleep. The bath in their room was dirty and the carpets looked like they need a good shampoo.
We unfortunately lost the key to the granary suite and was told by the security man that we could not enter our room until we found the key! If we did not find the key by midnight (when the venue shut) he would then let us in with his spare. I spent an hour of my wedding night looking under tables for a key, not the wedding of dreams! I was cold and wanted my shrug from the room and was unable to go in because we had no key and another one wasn't provided to us.
Breakfast was pleasant but no menus so unsure to what they actually serve.
We had top table cater for us who were amazing and highly professional.
I would not recommend this venue to gey married. I only expect to get married once and as lovely as my wedding memories are I also can not forget the above which is very sad when you are paying so much money for your big day!
I did email sandhole barn, one email was sent back to me and then silence.......
A Beautiful Day
The onsite accommodation was well appointmented and meant that people could relax and not worry about booking taxis.
The Sandhole Team were thoughtful and helpful even when Covid cancelled the first 2 scheduled days and were reassuring all the way through.
What a stunning venue! We fell in love with this venue from the moment that we saw it. We loved how exclusive the venue is and that there is on site accommodation. The venue looked great outside and in. The staff who worked there were so friendly and welcoming. Having access to the bridal getting ready room in the morning was great. It had plenty of space for us all to get ready in the morning.
Definitely would recommend this venue!
Beautiful Venue, Amazing Team.
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
