Wedding day

We have just had our wedding at the Outbarn and stayed close by at their wedding cottage and farmhouse.
From day 1 of attending the venue and speaking with Henry, Ruth, Emma and Alice, we have been nothing but impressed.
They have all been incredibly supportive and knowledgeable, making the whole event, from planning to the actual day, a breeze.
The venue itself is stunning and it is set in a location that makes pictures perfect.

All of our friends and family could not rate the venue any higher, all commenting on every aspect of it.

You will see comments about the staff, from management to bar staff, but I can confirm that this is far from true!
They have been fantastic and did everything they could to reassure us.
Once we left, we realised we'd left one of our jackets in the staff office, which was put their by them on our request. We rang Henry, who found the jacket and he kindly offered to post it to us, at his own cost, which again shows how willing they are to help, even after us leaving.

Use this venue, it will make your wedding the best it can be.

Our unforgettable day

Wow, just wow! We had our wedding at the Out Barn on Saturday and it exceeded every single one of our expectations!! From our initial visit with Ruth and Henry, right through to collecting our belongings this morning, the whole team at the Out Barn have been amazing!
Ruth & Henry thank you so much for looking after us from day one- making us feel so welcome and reassured at all stages.
Emma- dealing with you has been a pleasure. After endless emails (mostly from me) you ensured our day went to plan. Every detail was covered, and you couldn’t have done any more for us!
Alice- thank you for running our day for us. Again, you went over and above to ensure we were kept fully updated throughout the day and made sure everything ran on time. As a bride it was so lovely to have somebody as helpful as you on hand to support! So again, thank you so much.
Finally a thank you to Chris and the bar staff for ensuring our guests were fed and watered throughout!
Please please do not hesitate in booking your special day at the Out Barn- it was a day we will never ever forget!!

I knew The Out Barn was the perfect venue.

Thank you so much for everything you did to make Emma & Edi's wedding day so special and fabulous on 15th June 2019. From our first visit in January 2018, we knew we were in safe hands. With so many first time visits to Lancashire, I knew The Out Barn was the perfect venue to create a wonderful impression of our beautiful part of the country. It was a pleasure to work with all of you and I enjoyed every moment of organising the day, which was delivered in a lovely, welcoming, calm atmosphere with personal love and care. I look forward to enjoying future events at The Out Barn, it will always hold a special place for us all.

The most perfect wedding venue I have ever seen!

Honestly the most perfect wedding venue I’ve ever seen. We got married here 21.04.19 and the day went perfectly without hitch. Perfect venue, beautiful scenery, every detail taken care of, friendly staff. If you’re considering this for a wedding venue then you need to book it because nowhere else compares.

Wow... What a truly stunning & unique venue

Wow... What a truly stunning & unique venue in a beautiful setting. We cannot recommend them highly enough. Henry, Ruth, James & all of the staff are absolutely wonderful - so friendly & helpful. All queries in the run up to the day are answered straight away and on the day itself they cannot do enough to help out. The day ran so smoothly and there was a truly relaxed atmosphere which allowed us to enjoy our day - this was all thanks to them. The Barn is beautiful both indoors and out - in fact it tipped it down for most of our day but that did not matter as the inside is just as great. We had the best day of our lives and I really don't know why anybody would consider any other venue in Lancashire

It was the most unreal day.

We had our wedding at the Out Barn a few weeks ago and it was the most unreal day. Everything went so perfectly and it’s credit to Henry and his team, who were just brilliant to deal with through the whole process. Everything was dealt with so efficiently and they were always flexible and open to hearing about our ideas, and helping them come to life. We got so many compliments on the venue and it’s settings which are absolutely beautiful, and I’m so glad we chose to have our wedding here. I’m just upset we don’t have an excuse to come back now! Thank you so much for helping make our day so special

A hidden gem.

We had our wedding at the Out Barn on a very wet and rainy Bank holiday Sunday. The venue itself was PERFECT. This venue definitely shouldn’t just be used in summer, when it’s darker, the Outbarn inside looks so bright and having everyone in the main room was great. The staff were fantastic, especially Ruth and Henry who did everything they could to make sure our day would be perfect.
The separate room with the log burner was fantastic for some of our older guests to relax towards the end of the night.
So many gorgeous pictures have already emerged and all our guests couldn’t believe how fantastic the venue was. A hidden gem.
Thank you so much for making our day so fantastic

It was the most magical day of our lives.

We got married on 4th August 2018 and it was the most magical day of our lives. The scenery, venue, friendly staff, the dairy farm accommodation, room decorations and the personal touch that can only come from a family run business where everyone who works there is passionate about making your day amazing. Best decision to choose the Out Barn and I would recommend it to anyone. We haven’t had our professional photographs back yet as it was only last weekend but I have attached one that one of our guests took. I am still on a high and cannot thank them enough!!

The team were all very helpful and accommodating.

We had the most perfect wedding reception at The Out Barn 2 weeks ago. The location is absolutely stunning and the venue works perfectly. Henry, Ruth, James and the team were all very helpful and accommodating in any personal touches or ideas we wanted to introduce to the venue from decorations to drink requests and out door games. The indoor space comfortably fitted 105 people on long tables and we had lovely weather so all the outdoor space was used giving the amazing views. The main room was then rearranged by the team and an extra 40 guests were easily accommodated with the back room and seating space appreciated by older guests. We got nothing but positive feedback from all our guests and would definitely recommend this venue to all family and friends.
