About

Set in the picturesque West Dorset countryside, the Tithe Barn here at Symondbsury Estate is an idyllic setting for a country wedding. Our 14th Century barn has been sympathetically renovated to enhance its natural elegance; from large arched entrances, exposed oak beams and discreet underfloor heating for those cooler months.

You can spend your whole day with us here, from your 'I do's', to your evening reception. We are licensed for Civil Ceremonies and partnerships, with a seated capacity of 120 guests.

Whatever, your taste, the Tithe Barn provides a stylish backdrop, allowing your imagination to run wild in dressing the space as you wish. Our beautiful private garden, with seasonal flowers and twinkling fairy lights, is the perfect spot for drinks and canapés, whilst having photographs taken and creating memories that will last you a lifetime.

Here at Symondsbury Estate we have many luxury holiday cottages and farmhouses available which are ideal for families staying together and allowing the celebrations to go on past your wedding day itself.

Viewings of the barn are by appointment, so do get in contact.

We look forward to meeting you soon and starting your wedding journey with you.

    Happily Ever After

    Words can not describe what a magical wedding day we had on the 11th of April this year at the Tilthe Barn. Amy and the team worked so hard to make sure our day ran smoothly and it really did. The barn is beautiful and understated, everything we could have wished for :-) Thank you, Mr and Mrs Main x

    Enchanting venue

    My husband and I got married at the tithe barn in April and could not have had a more perfect day. Kirsten was amazing throughout the lead up and the day and we could not be more grateful for just how magical our day was. The venue is truly beautiful and we would highly recommend it to all our friends and family :) thank you so much for everything :)

    Perfect rustic venue

    My husband and I cannot recommend the Tithe Barn in Symondsbury enough. The second that we walked into the barn we knew it was the perfect venue for us. The barn itself is stunning, and you are free to dress it however you like, which really appealed to us. The private garden is beautiful, both by day and by night. We got married in October and had an autumn theme, which looked stunning at the barn. Every single guest has told us how beautiful the venue was. Probably the best thing about the Tithe Barn is the incredible team that run the weddings. We initially met with Amy, who was amazing at helping us understand how the day could run and what we wanted. I don't remember her ever saying that anything we wanted would be a problem. Once Kirsten joined the team at Symondsbury Estates she became our wedding coordinator, and we could not have asked for anyone better. She genuinely cared about our day as much as we did! We did not worry about a thing on our wedding day as we knew Kirsten had everything in hand. Everything went exactly to plan on the day thanks to her. In all our experience at the Tithe Barn was perfect. We had the freedom to do things our way but with the support of an amazing and experienced coordinator. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day.

    Tithe Barn's reply:

    Thank you Gemma and Thomas for your lovely review. We really appreciate you taking the time to express your thanks :)
    It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your special day and the fact that it was everything you wanted and more makes us even happier. We wish you lots of happiness and love for the future and hope to see you again in Symondsbury one day.
