Flanked by 120 acres of private grounds complete with flower-filled walled gardens and a medieval courtyard, The Great Barn – affectionately known as the ‘thatched cathedral’ – never fails to captivate couples with its 15th century history, striking architecture and wow-worthy interiors. Thanks to its scale, most of the celebrations can take place in a single space, while the adjoining Roundhouse works perfectly as a bar area, chill-out lounge or space to entertain younger guests.
