Set on the outskirts of Bedford, just a short stroll from the town centre, The Barns Hotel is a charming venue for your wedding celebrations. The hotel enjoys a tranquil setting within three and a half acres of landscaped grounds with stunning views across the River Great Ouse.
We have an excellent reputation for holding grand occasions and are locally known as “the best wedding venue” in Bedford. With the beautiful surroundings, fantastic first-class service and a licence to hold civil ceremonies, the hotel offers all you could need for a wonderful wedding.
The Barns Hotel offers five well-appointed suites for your wedding. The stunning 13th-century Tithe Barn, with its timber frame and red brick, exudes charm and character. The Barn is both the oldest and largest venue on-site and can accommodate up to 90 seated guests for your celebrations. The light and spacious AA Rosette WineGlass Restaurant is another delightful option for your day. Both the Barn and restaurant have easy access to the wonderful outdoor areas which offer enchanting backdrops for your treasured photos. Alternatively, for a more intimate occasion, we have two smaller suites which boast views over the gardens.
We appreciate that your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and you want it to be perfect. You will benefit from the experience and knowledge of our wedding planner who will be on hand every step of the way to help you plan your dream wedding.

Could not have been more efficient...
Just a note of thanks for looking after us on our special day last Saturday.Sent on 08/08/2019
Such a lot of planning goes into those few hours but your venue, and of course the weather, combined to make it a beautiful and special day that we will remember for ever.
I would particularly like to single out Alec our Co-ordinator for the day who could not have been more efficient, and full of empathy for all of the Wedding party and their needs – something that is sometimes missing in staff who deal with customers on a regular basis, handling what are in reality the same old questions and issues!
The Hotel Manageress on the day and in breakfast the following morning, whose name sadly escapes me, could also not have done more to make us feel valued.
I trust you will pass on our gratitude to your team.

Good Morning Sam,Sent on 08/08/2019
We just wanted to say Thank you so much to you and everyone at The Barns involved in our day on the 3rd of May. Mags & Alec we’re so attentive throughout the whole day and made us feel nothing was too much trouble. Holly did a great job of running the evening and keeping me involved.
Thank you for your help on the build up, you must have so many weddings to plan but you knew exactly how to calm my over worrying mind!!
We just want to do it all again!!
We will be back!
Mr & Mrs Barker
