The Oak Barn is a high quality bespoke wedding venue overlooked by the medieval St Andrews Church in mid Devon. Surrounded by picturesque gardens and the rural Devon countryside, this venue is ideal for couples looking for a relaxed rural wedding celebration. Katharine and John run The Oak Barn which features four converted historic barns.

Facilities and Capacity

Situated in an 18th Century granary, The Oak Barn has been transformed into an elegant hall. It still maintains its rustic charm with its oak cruck trusses and romantic interior. Couples can hold their ceremony in The Oak Barn, the smaller Acorn Barn, outside or in the adjacent St Andrews (booked separately).

The venue accommodates up to 90 guests in the day and 125 in the evening. There are eleven bedrooms in the various barns offering high quality accommodation. There is a self contained bridal suite for the bridal party to prepare for the ceremony.

Services Offered

As a venue only rental, The Oak Barn welcomes outside vendors and other arrangements to transform this space into your own. John and Katharine will be available throughout should you need any help or advice. You will have access to the property from Friday mid-day until Sunday mid-day. The venue comes with 17 oak trestle tables, 90 chairs, garden furniture and use of a sound system.

The Oak Barn is well established, opening in 2012 and has hosted over 300 weddings. It is ideally suited for relaxed, more informal weddings with good personal support from the owners.

Amazing wedding weekend

As soon as we saw the Oak Barn we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding. An incredibly beautiful set up in an amazing location. Katharine and John were hugely helpful in the planning process and nothing was too much trouble. The weekend was incredible, this was made all the more special by Katharine and John going way above and beyond for us, from collecting morning newspapers for our guests staying in the beautiful accommodation to allowing our smaller guests to borrow their beautiful playroom. John and Katharine did so much work behind the scenes which allowed us to have the best wedding weekend and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

We had an amazing weekend

We had the most amazing weekend celebrating our wedding with our friends and family. Katherine & John were incredibly helpful and The Oak Barn is a beautiful venue. We loved the flexibility of being able to use suppliers of our choice and we were able to decorate the Oak Barn as we wanted. The accomodation available for family to stay was fantastic. Thanks again for a great weekend.
