Facilities and Capacity

You and your loved one can kickstart your day by tying the knot either in the gorgeous Tudor Barn (seats 115), which is complete with massive wooden beams, vaulted ceilings, exposed brick walls and more, or outside in the glorious sunshine or shade of the trees. After your ceremony (whether it is here or at a nearby church or registry office) you and your guests can make their way to the stunning courtyard for a splendid drinks’ reception. Here, you can chat and mingle with friends and family, sip on drinks of your choice, and admire the beauty of the buildings and venue. You will probably follow this with a delicious wedding feast in the Stackyard Marquee, using a caterer of your choice. This expansive area can accommodate your entire guest list of up to 120 and can set the tone for your magical day. A night of laughter and dancing can then unfold back in the Barn with music and stunning light-show. There is space for seated guests, a bar, dance floor, and live entertainment or disco again of your choice. With the option of using only the Barn (for 50) or having a giant marquee in the paddock (200+), you can perfectly tailor your exact requirements around the venue.

Services Offered

Upon booking your big day at The Sancroft Barns, the venue staff will be on-hand to ensure that everything runs smoothly. But being a dry-hire venue, you have the freedom to work with all outside suppliers to best match your specific requirements. The venue staff can advise you in the complete setup of the venue, which you will then transform into the venue of your dreams for this very special day.
