Award Winning Venue - Winner of Best Barn Wedding Venue in the UK 2024. Stretton Manor Barn is a unique and exclusive wedding venue set within 22 acres of Derbyshire countryside. The barn is full of rustic charm, with reclaimed stonework and traditional timber cladding.

The most memorable weddings are those with energy. A rare energy which quickly gathers momentum and grows in confidence, until it becomes an unstoppable celebration of love, laughter and excitement.
We believe in the power of design! No more long and narrow rooms, broken and separate spaces or inaccessible outdoor areas. We are a contemporary barn conversion, “one of a kind” impeccably designed with open plan and connected spaces, home to the most enjoyable celebrations!

Stretton Manor Barn was lovingly built back in 2020 exclusively for weddings. The luxuriously designed open plan spaces and 8m bifold doors lead you to panoramic views of the surrounding Derbyshire countryside.
Natural rustic materials including reclaimed stonework, traditional timber cladding and handcrafted oak furniture provide a beautiful contrast to the soft, contemporary, and refined bar and lounge interior.
We offer you the choice of an indoor or outdoor wedding ceremony for up to 100 guests, a capacity of 140 guests for a wedding banquet and up to 160 guests throughout the evening.

You can enjoy exclusive use of the barn and all couples have access for photographs within a further 22 acres of private grass meadows and wonderful native hedgerows. Fairy lights, chandeliers, freestanding firepits and outdoor heaters all help to give the barn a beautiful and natural glow.

If like us, you are a family of “Foodies”, you will appreciate those rare occasions when you enjoy a truly exceptional meal. Your wedding breakfast is the greatest celebration of your life together, a special gathering of your closest friends and family, a pinnacle moment and this one has to be extra special. We are proud to have an in house team of incredibly talented chef’s.
We passionately source fresh and local produce wherever possible and we always provide generous portions of excellent quality food. Our banquets are simple, delicious and reliably fantastic.

Exceptional, above and beyond from everyone

I can’t believe our big day has been and gone! All of the team at Stretton manor barn are amazing. Nothing is too much all of my suppliers said how much of a dream they were to work alongside.
The food was delicious everyone complimented how lovely it was and how much there was.. not a hungry belly in sight all day
The bar staff were attentive myself and my husband were never without anything all day they always popped to our table to see if we needed anything and to take away glasses, refresh table waters

Ellie our beautiful wedding coordinator was amazing from start to finish with every detail, the day ran super smooth and I cannot thank her enough!

Simply the best wedding venue

We cant thank the whole team enough for making our day so perfect. Everything went to plan, if not better!
From our first visit we knew this was where we wanted to get married, we instantly felt welcome and comfortable. The attention and care all the staff put in is incredible, they are so polite and helpful, nothing seems to be too much trouble.
The location is perfect, in beautiful surroundings, very quiet and private and makes for brilliant photo opportunities!
The food is incredible, we upgraded to the Banquet Trio, and had hog roast for the evening, and well, wow! The amount of food you get on each platter is very generous, but the quality and flavour of everything is insane! Just for food alone everybody should have their wedding here.
Simply, Stretton Manor Barn is the perfect wedding venue.
Thank you all so much again for making our day so wonderful, we will be forever grateful

Stunning and seamless wedding day!!

We can’t express enough how amazing the staff have been from booking until picking up our decor after our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble and they made us and our wedding feel truly special - a special shout out to Beth and Ellie! We had endless comments on how beautiful and intimidate the venue is as well as how seamless the day went. Oh and every guest has raved about the food - we wish the barn was a restaurant so we could return! Thank you so much to everyone at SMB!

Incredible Venue

Stretton manor barn was the first and only place we viewed for our wedding venue. As soon as we seen it we knew it was the right place for us. Everything about the venue is absolutely stunning.
Beth our wedding coordinator could not do enough for us even last minute requests she fulfilled. She was there every step of the way even on the day going above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. Our day couldn’t have been any more perfect and that is because of the staff at stretton manor for making that happen. They really couldn’t do enough. Nothing was too much trouble and even our guests complimented how good they were.
The food, we had canapés after our ceremony which were out of this world. Every single guest loved them. Especially the pork sausages and mash!! The wedding breakfast itself was again absolutely delicious and the pizza we had at night was so good. Couldn’t have asked for better food.
So just a massive thank you to Beth and the team at Stretton manor barn for making our day as special and perfect as it was.
Highly recommend this venue to anyone.

A Complete Dream

Wow! Where do I start?

I remember finding this amazing venue when we first got engaged. At that point it was still is development.. We only saw concept art but could already tell it was going to be incredible and would have to visit.

Fast forward to 2021 we began to plan our wedding. We arranged a visit, and it ended up being the only venue we viewed. Even though there was still a tiny bit more work to be done, and no official weddings as of yet, the place completely took our breath away. We could imagine every little detail for our day, and all our family and friends around us. I remember saying to my partner as soon as we got home that we simply had to reserve our date.

From the minute we booked our wedding, even 2 years ahead, the team at Stretton have been nothing short of remarkable. The level of communication and care from Amanda, and everyone was a weight lifted off our shoulders. We couldn’t ask more from anyone. Amanda was our coordinator on the day and she was simply outstanding and couldn’t do enough for the both of us! The day before she was there helping us set up, and on the day of, organising everyone, fluffing my train and helping me walk across the car park a nervous wreck before our ceremony, and just having the most fun with us. We can’t thank her enough for everything she has done to make our day so special.

The barn is a lovely mix of contemporary modern and rustic, giving off a really warm atmosphere. I had always dreamed of an autumn, barn style, rustic wedding and here all of my dreams became real. What we love about Stretton Manor Barn is that you are encouraged to style it however you want, and show off your personalities. But in truth it doesn’t need much doing to it at all, it’s just stunning by itself. Table runners with scattered candles and flowers made ours the dream we had visioned for ourselves right from the beginning; we wanted to show off the tables, chairs and beautiful wooden arch that just makes the venue what it is. There are so many extras included with the barn as well that we didn’t realise; the Mr & Mrs sign really added to the vibrancy of the atmosphere.

The food is on another planet. Phenomenal. The starter was sublime; light and flavourful with a lovely bruschetta each. Gorgeous humous, olives and a lovely range of breads. We went for the Char-Grilled Chicken for our main and Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. Both were out of this world and portion sizes were huge for everyone! We got to try the dessert at the Prosecco & canapés night a couple of months prior and knew we were on to a winner! I only wish I’d of had a bigger appetite on the day as everything was just delicious! We went for the pizzas for the evening option which were again just beautiful! I can’t remember going to a wedding, let alone being my own where the food was THIS GOOD.. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it, even days later! From the variety of options available to the portion sizes, there is something for everyone and not to be missed!

The day itself was just perfect. Everything just went exactly how we dreamed with little to no stress at all. The weather was gorgeous too which was an added bonus! From the getting ready, photos, food and dancing, everything felt so seamless. We would like to thank everyone involved for helping to make our day so magical, from the coordinators and chefs, to the bartenders, waiting staff and our DJ on the night, you are all absolutely wonderful and really make the barn somewhere truly special.

Absolutely amazing

We found Stretton Manor Barn through Instagram and knew straight away it was where we wanted to get married. The photos genuinely don’t do it justice of how stunning the barn and surroundings are. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather which meant we could have the outdoor ceremony we wanted and we are so glad we did!

One of the main reasons we loved Stretton was the packages they offer! So much was included it made our lives a little easier and less stressful! They also allow dogs which is an huge bonus! Our wedding coordinator Victoria was also amazing, she was extremely helpful all they way through and didn’t get annoyed at our constant emails! On the day Victoria and all the staff went above and beyond, nothing was too much trouble and they had everything in hand so we didn’t need to worry!

Lastly the food, a big thing for us because it’s all anyone asks you after you’ve attended a wedding, was simply incredible! We upgraded to the banquet trio of meats and hog roast for the evening, everything from the presentation, quantity and taste was out of this world. We still have guests telling us now how amazing the food was now.

We had the most amazing day, everything was perfect from start to finish and Stretton Manor Barn played a huge part in that. We would recommend it to anybody. Thank you for the best day! Xx

The best wedding venue we could have possibly chosen.

We absolutely love Stretton Manor Barn! From the first meeting up until the day itself, every member of staff was helpful, personable, available for anything we needed, accommodating, and genuinely appeared to be invested in making our day exactly what we wanted it to be. I cant speak highly enough of the venue and it's staff, and would highly recommend everyone to, at the very least, visit them and see how beautiful the venue itself is. We could never thank them enough for everything they did, and have absolutely no regrets about choosing Stretton Manor Barn for our big day.

Also, the food was incredible!

Incredible wedding venue!

Couldn’t recommend Stretton Manor Barn as a wedding venue highly enough. Beth and the whole team were so attentive, patient and happy to help and made our whole day and planning process so simple. The venue itself is beautiful, the food is delicious (and very accommodating for dietary requirements), and communication with the team in the run up was super quick and helpful. We have had nothing but positive feedback from family and friends about the whole day!

One of the best days of our lives!

We had such a beautiful day. All from the day before setting up, to getting dressed at the on site dressing room, walking down the aisle, the magnificent food & then the party!! There wasn’t a moment in the day we’d change. The staff are so kind & accommodating, they really did make us feel at home. The venue is absolutely stunning & the views are breath taking. Our photos are beautiful with the back drop of the fields behind them. It’s lovely that it’s so private & intimate. No one was left out at any point as we were all together. The choice of food is amazing, & we thoroughly enjoyed it. The packages that are offered are brilliant & very customisable with upgrades if wanted.
Thank you Stretton Manor Barn. We love it!x

Our wedding at Stretton manor barn was better than we could have ever hoped for

As soon as we viewed the venue we knew this was where we were getting married. The barn itself is beautifully rustic and really well thought out, it was important to us that everyone be together in one room so that we can enjoy our day together, rather than losing guests in various rooms. The bar was really well stocked and the service was very quick.

The little touches really do set this venue, and it’s team, apart. The couple welcome sign and the glass of Prosecco when we first came to view and the canapés evening where we were invited along with other couples with imminent weddings planned to an evening of live music, canapés and Prosecco. As it was a Christmas wedding mince pies were also offered to our guests along with Canapés at no additional cost (best mince pies we’d ever had!) Amanda braving the rain and wind to ensure I had an umbrella (or 4!) over me as I arrived at the venue! We also had a canapés board put together for the bride and groom as we were outside having photos which was very thoughtful and appreciated.

The food deserves a paragraph of its own! We upgraded to the banquet trio and it’s the best decision we made! Our guests couldn’t stop complimenting the meal and we were receiving messages for days after saying how delicious it was! The quantity was also amazing, no one went hungry! The desserts that weren’t eaten were laid out on our desserts table which was a lovely touch and meant they could be enjoyed by evening guests too.

Lastly, if you book your wedding with Stretton manor barn then you are in the best hands. The team, and in particular our wedding coordinator Amanda, were absolutely amazing from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and they were so quick at responding to my emails. It can be stressful planning a wedding but Amanda really helped us along. The staff on the day were also very polite, happy and helpful.

We realise Stretton Manor is a very popular venue with lots of weddings booked but the team made us feel like our wedding was the only one. We had the best wedding day ever, we just wish we could do it all again tomorrow!

Mr & Mrs Dennis

Firstly, we would like to thank every team member at Stretton Manor Barn, from our first viewing when the venue was still only a building site right to the morning after the wedding they were all amazing, no question or request was too much and the communication was excellent throughout.
On the wedding day everything was really well organized and relaxed, all our guests have commented on how smooth everything was changed around during the day and how friendly all the staff where.
Then the food !!! Even now our guests and us are still talking about the food. It was amazing and there was plenty to go around.
Again we would like to thank Stretton Manor Barn for providing our perfect day would 100% recommend to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue.
From Grace & Josh
