Beautiful Barn

We had our wedding at the beautiful Winters Barns and it was a perfect day. So magical and the staff were so attentive and lovely.
They knew every single thing they needed to happen and listened to our needs throughout the planning process.
Sally was our Co-ordinator and she was just so lovely and lively and made me feel so comfortable.

Thank you so so much to all at the winters barns team for being so incredible! We are so thankful and will always cherish the special day you helped us have xx

Better than perfect!

We had our wedding at winters barns in early march and we had the best wedding! There are so many photo opportunities at winters barns to choose from which are all stunning- interior and exterior. All the organising was easy for us as it was done in house by the wedding coordinator- in our case, it was Lizzie. Lizzie was absolutely brilliant with all aspects of our wedding and so organised and professional. The ceremony itself was perfect and was all ready to go very early for me to see over before the actual ceremony. The Bridal salon offered everything the bridal party needed, as did the pump room. The cottage was perfect, so clean and so tidy. As was all of the rooms in the farm house and the hop picking hut. Jon the barman was so kind and polite and really was a superb character, he also helped make the evening so memorable. there was not a single thing I found a fault with and our wedding day went so perfectly and smooth because of the beautiful surroundings and organised co-ordination from Lizzie, Jon and the rest of the team at winters barns. Absolute perfection, Thankyou so much for Making our day so special!

A Perfect Venue!

Winters Barns is by far the best venues we could have ever dreamed of. The venue is so beautifully decorated and had so much character that when we first visited, we knew there and then it was the right one for us. In the lead up and then on the day, everything was so well thought out and flowed perfectly. For someone who鈥檚 a bit of a control freak, I felt in such safe hands. Lizzie, our coordinator was amazing and smashed every part of the day. If anything went wrong, I certainly did not know about it. The function rooms, the honeymoon suite, the bridal/grooms prep, the guest house, everything was just gorgeous! The food and drink supplied by Scott Anderson was too amazing and we received a lot of lovely comments! Thank you Winters Barns and especially to Lizzie! Xxx

Outstanding, Breathtaking

Like most after numerous cancellations due to covid we were back to the drawing board. We were due to marry in Cyprus however it was cancelled twice and almost gave up trying. We found Winters Barns and planned to visit and look at booking for the following year or two due to UK wedding costs. On arrival the venue was breathtaking. It had everything you could possibly ask for under one roof. We fell in love and then panicked somewhere so beautiful would be out of our budget. Sophie gave us the grand tour and after our talks I realised it was within our reach. They also had one last date in October this was 7 weeks away. We decided to just do it. With 7 weeks to plan an entire wedding Winters Barns couldn't of been more accommodating. They were always on hand. They couldn't of done anymore for me if they tried. No question was ever to much or left unanswered. They were incredible. I wish so much I could relive my wedding day at Winters Barns over and over. It was the most amazing day I could ask for. The venue, the caterers the bar staff, the planners. Each and every one of them were faultless. Our guests continuously complimented all we had put together even down to entering the grounds which may I add were immaculate and gorgeous. It had so many photo opportunities my photographer was in her element. Who would have thought organising a wedding in 7 weeks could be so stress free. Although each and every person were amazing Sophie our planner was one of the most amazing girls I've met. She was out of this world and is unbelievable at her job whilst giving off a personal vibe. We are so grateful and thankful to all involved in making our happily ever after finally come together. I would highly highly recommend this venue to anyone that crosses our path.

A truly wonderful wedding venue

We couldn鈥檛 have been happier with our choice of venue for our big day. Winters Barns is absolutely beautiful and the additional festive decor around the barn really added a special touch for our winter wedding. The service we received from the start of our wedding planning process to the day itself was second to none. The whole team at Winters are absolutely fantastic at what they do and offer such an efficient and organised service. A particular thank you to Lizzie, who made sure our day ran smoothly, you are amazing! We would thoroughly recommend Winters Barns to anyone, thank you so much for making our wedding dreams come true!

A truly memorable day!

We could not have been happier with our wedding day at Winters Barns! All the staff looked after us through the whole process from the time we booked, to the finish when we picked up our decorations and flowers the day after our wedding. The support we had from Sally on our wedding day was tremendous and the attention to detail that was taken in setting out the venue for us was excellent. A gorgeous wedding venue with fantastic staff made it a truly memorable day. Thank you!! x

Total Perfection!

From the moment we saw Winters Barns we fell in love with it - it is beautiful! Stunningly restored and beautifully rustic with a great layout and gorgeous grounds, everything has been thought of to make guests comfortable from temperature control to plenty of outdoor seating and a decent plan for all weather scenarios! From our point of view, two separate salons for the bridal party and the groom's party to get ready in which was brilliant for photos and the video and a gorgeous cottage for the wedding night.

Whilst it was the most beautiful setting, it was actually the team that made it extraordinary. David, Lizzie, Liz and Sally are the warmest, kindest and most enthusiastic and organised people ever! We can honestly say there was no stress involved in planning our wedding and that is totally down to them and the wonderful people they recommended from photographer to make up artist. Our overall experience was that our wedding was perfect and so many of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We wouldn't change a thing - thank you!
