As soon as we saw Selden Barns we both knew it was where we wanted to get married. The barn and surrounding areas are beautiful and location was ideal. The wedding coordinators were amazing. Nothing was an issue and they were happy to answer the many questions we had! The on-site accommodation was perfect for all our close family. The setting is very romantic and you wouldn’t find a better venue.Sent on 27/06/2020

The location is simply stunning!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my experience of Selden Barns, having got married there last month. Rachel, Chloe and all the other staff were so helpful and knowledgeable in the planning stages and they helped us to have the most perfect day. The location is simply stunning, with picture opportunities everywhere you look. And the bridal suite was just amazing!Sent on 16/08/2019

We had the most perfect wedding at Selden Barns!Sent on 10/06/2019
Rachel is just fabulous and takes away all the stress....nothing is too much trouble. On the day the communication between the staff was excellent, managing people and timings perfectly.
We wanted a day of fun and laughter and that's exactly what we got. The new bridal suite is perfect and truly a special room. Our guests also loved their rooms and breakfast the next day was a fun and filling experience! We didn't look at any other venues as we knew from the moment we looked around that Selden Barns was the place for us! Thanks so much for everything x
