The most perfect venue EVER


We truly loved every second of our wedding at Stratton Court Barn, we cannot thank the team enough. From the second we drove along the tree lined avenue to the main barn, we fell in love. The wide open windows, beautiful flagged stone floors and foliage everywhere makes the venue so beautiful, bright, airy but also relaxed. All of our guests commented on how gorgeous the venue was and the staff went above and beyond. Karin and her team moved heaven and earth when covid struck to provide us with alternative dates and ensure our day was a fairy tale.
Don't hesitate, come and view the venue and see for yourself. Stratton Court Barn will forever have a place in our heart.

The Perfect Venue

We booked Stratton Court Barn in November 2021 and had our wonderful wedding there on 7 October 2023.

From the first visit we knew it was the perfect venue! We were looking for a barn venue that felt intimate, beautiful, relaxed and warm and it ticked all these boxes and more. Karin was there from day one up until our actual day (and after lol), answering all our questions, giving ideas, solving any problems before we even knew they had happened. We were so impressed how super organised she is but also how she really cared. We hadn't felt this from the other venues we had visited.

I could honestly talk all day about how amazing this venue is and still not do it justice, but some of the things that really stood out for us were;
- Karin is the USP, she honestly will look after you from day one and always be there to help
- All the staff were very friendly, professional and helpful, we didn't have to worry about anything before or on the day. They knew exactly what to do and when
- The beauty of the whole venue, there are so many places for guests to relax and enjoy and also photo opportunities. There is the courtyard, rose garden, field, lake, cottage. There is something to meet everyone's wishes
- The fact you can have the venue all day to yourselves with your wedding party
- How they catered for our rescue dog to be involved and allowed us to visit before so she wouldn't be so anxious on the day. This also was what helped us know it was the venue for us
- They work with your suppliers to make sure everything runs effortlessly before and on the day
- We hired the fire pit and lawn games which were fun for all the guests and gave it that cozy feel, like a family party
- The cottage is wonderful to stay the night and was the perfect way to end our perfect day. We sat talking for hours after feeling very relaxed and at home. Breakfast was also amazing!
- How easily accessible it is, we had guests from North and South and everyone came. Lots of free parking and local hotels to stay in. Advice on prebooking taxis from Karin was also very helpful so all guests got home safely
- We went to nearly every open day before the wedding as this helped us plan and make everything real. We could try menus, plan decor, seating etc and also we met quite a few of our suppliers either at the open day or found them through SCB Instagram. They have wonderful relationships with everyone who works with them that makes planning so much easier!
- Finally all our guests commented on how perfect a venue it was and what a wonderful time they had

As soon as we picked our venue everything else seem to fall in place and that was largely due to SCB, especially Karin. Thank you to everyone who works there for caring so much about making the day perfect, we couldn't have done it without you and wouldn't have picked anywhere else. It was a day we will never forget :)
Love Kim & Dean xxx

I can’t recommend enough

Where do we even start?

This venue was beyond our wildest dreams. It had everything you need for a perfect wedding day, and our guests couldn’t believe its beauty.

Karin is without a shadow of a doubt incredible, she answers every single little question, knowing the answer straight away. Her love for the venue makes you want to get married there and then, every open day is flawless and she has the nicest way with people.

Jess was our wedding manager for our perfect day, and it wouldn’t have been perfect without her. Jess went above and beyond the entire day, she fluffed my dress, pinned my dress, set up our decorations better than I ever thought, seamlessly went from ceremony to wedding breakfast without even knowing she was doing it, played with my son, looked out for my son repeatedly (and made friends with him!!) and was my guardian angel all day. Nothing was too much for her, she guided me the whole day, made sure my guests were happy, the list is endless. I will forever be grateful for Jess, for making our day absolutely beautiful and special.

I can’t rave them enough, if you are thinking of booking them, do it. The pair are absolutely amazing and they make the venue even more special.

Thank you to you both, we had the most perfect day and it wouldn’t have been that way without either of you.

Love Mr and Mrs Hayward xx

Speechless!!!

No words can describe how beautiful and perfect this venue is. Karin the wedding manager is a literal queen at the venue, the most organised person you will ever meet, Karin was quick to reply to any questions I had and nothing was too much trouble. She is the perfect person to help plan a wedding!
The venue is something else, from the fairy lights, to the cottage feel, makes this venue ideal for someone wanting a barn wedding with a vintagey/boho vibe. And an added bonus is the venue is dog friendly!! It was everything we wanted and more!!! We wish we could do it all over again…if you’re thinking of booking here, then do it and you’ll have no regrets! Thank you so much Karin and Stratton Court Barn

We couldn't have been happier with our wedding

We wanted a fun, colourful wedding – which is exactly what we got. Had we asked for stylish and sophisticated, Karin definitely would have made that happen too.

Organisationally, our day was a flawless masterpiece - axe throwing, ping pong and cocktails all happened as if a magic fairy was in charge. We have to imagine the hard work that went on behind the scenes because we didn’t see a second of it.

Stratton Court Barn is beautiful and Karin decorated it with natural flair. She also generously gave us her time beforehand, in person, by Zoom and by e-mail; even at the height of summer we felt like we were the only couple getting married there.

The perfect venue

This is the perfect venue. Nothing is too much for Karin and her team. Since the moment we booked Stratton it has been perfect. On the day there was nothing to worry about as it was all taken care of! Wish we could do it again

Best venue ever!

Our wedding day at Stratton Court Barn was absolutely perfect in every way. From the initial planning stages to the actual day, everything went incredibly smoothly, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Karin, the event manager at the venue, was simply amazing. She was incredibly supportive and helpful throughout the entire process, ensuring that every detail was taken care of. Her expertise and attention to detail made us feel confident and at ease, knowing that our special day was in capable hands.

The venue itself is truly beautiful. From the moment we arrived, we were captivated by its charm and elegance. Everywhere you looked, there was something stunning. One of the highlights for us was having our ceremony in the gorgeous woods. The soft, dappled sunlight created a magical atmosphere, and it was an incredibly picturesque setting.

The barns at Stratton Court are equally impressive. They are thoughtfully designed and well laid out, providing the perfect space for a wedding celebration. We particularly loved the courtyard, which was ideal for our summer wedding. It added an extra touch of charm and allowed our guests to enjoy the beautiful weather and the firepit!

On the day of our wedding, Karin truly went above and beyond. She ensured that everything ran seamlessly, taking care of every little detail so that my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Her dedication and professionalism were evident throughout the entire day, and we felt so relaxed and well taken care of.

We were fortunate enough to stay in the cottage on the night of our wedding, and it was absolutely gorgeous. The accommodations were comfortable and luxurious, allowing us to enjoy the breathtaking views as we savored a peaceful morning coffee. It was the perfect way to start our new journey as a married couple.

Overall, we can't recommend Stratton Court Barn enough. It exceeded our expectations in every aspect, and we would urge anyone looking for a wedding venue to choose Stratton Court Barn. From the stunning location to the outstanding service provided by Karin, everything was absolutely flawless. It truly was the wedding of our dreams.

The perfect venue!

We got married at Stratton Court Barn in November and we just had the best day ever! The venue is absolutely beautiful and you can feel all the love and care that goes into it all. And, the team there were incredible. They were there with us ever step of the way, so quick to reply and there for advice whenever we needed it. On the day, they just made it all feel effortless and everything went perfectly. The team were so fabulous. I can’t thank them enough for helping make our day so perfect. Wish we could do it all again!!

Fantastic throughout

We had an absolutely amazing experience with our wedding at Stratton Court Barn. The location and venue are beautiful. Our day went without a hitch, and that's all down to how well everything was run. Both on the up-front organisation and the day itself everything was made very clear and easy for us. We can't thank you enough!

The venue was perfect for our wedding size (we had 60 guests), the space really didn't need much decorating as the space is already so charming. Lots of photo opportunities around the grounds, too.

We had such a fun and fantastic day, I don't know what else to say other than this venue is perfect!

Beautiful venue and perfect day! made possible by Katie, Karin and the rest of the team.

Claire & Leigh Married on 14/07/2022

We loved the Barn from the photo knew were sold as soon as we had a video call with Karin (covid times), she was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
The whole day went incredibly smoothly with the great organisation and planning by Katie and the team on the day. The Barn is a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony and Wedding Breakfast. We were lucky to have sunny hot weather, allowing us to take advantage of the pretty courtyard space which friends and family enjoyed until the late evening. Katie and Karin were always quick to reply and encouraging for any ideas to make the day more special and unique for us.
Our friends and family all commented on how lovely the venue and team were. We couldn’t have asked for more and have the best day!

The BEST venue!

Woah what a venue! From the moment we viewed this venue we knew this would be the one. Karin and Katie made us feel like we were the only wedding they were managing, and were always on hand to answer questions - no matter how big or small! Our wedding day was everything we could have dreamed of in this perfect rural setting. The sun was shining so we were able to make full use of the outside space. Spending the wedding morning in the bridal suite over looking the fields was the perfect start to the day, and finishing it staying in the cottage onsite meant we could stay in the magic just a little longer. I'd recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!
