Amazing Venue

They day was perfect! Our wedding coordinators really brought it all together. There was nothing better than arriving after the ceremony in the walled garden and being offered a Pimms. Its a great sized venue with amazing staff ready to help. We wish we could've done the whole day again because it really was perfect there!

We really couldnt have asked for a better day

We had our wedding at The Barn on the 24th Aug and I have to say, Lucy and the team at Old Down were just amazing. She made everything really easy and was very accommodating. Nothing we asked was too much trouble. On the day, everything went exactly as we wanted it to and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. All of our guests said how great the venue, gardens, food and staff were. We really couldn’t have asked for a better day!
Thank you to Lucy, Louise and all the staff at Old Down for making our special day super amazing!
