The Setting

As barn wedding venues go you can’t get more picturesque than The Ashes Barns and Country House. The fifty acre estate rests at the foothills of the Peak District National Park, within the borders of Staffordshire in the West Midlands.

Amble up the mile long, tree-lined, private driveway through golden fields of corn and lush grassland, over a 17th century stone bridge and you begin to appreciate the charm of this stunning countryside wedding venue. From lush lawns with verdant borders, the idyllic pond and lustrous lake, apple orchard and bramble hedges to wilder things… wheat fields, bubbling brooks and starlit vistas, youʼll be overwhelmed by the variety of magical backdrops for your wedding photographs.

The Country House lawn offers incredible views across the surrounding countryside setting and the stunning collection of listed stone barns which make up The Ashes Barns Venue.

The Vibe

Licensed for civil ceremonies and comfortably seating up to a 150 guests, The West Barn features exposed oak beams, gorgeous stone flagged floor, original mullioned windows, a Juliet balcony for your musicians and a stunning aisle to sway down.

Choosing an historic barn wedding venue certainly adds a touch of magic to your ceremony. The West Barn is the oldest structure at The Ashes; a 17th century Grade II* listed rustic stone barn with warmth and charm.

Invite guests outside after your wedding ceremony where the waiting-on staff will be ready with trays of your chosen celebratory drinks. Relax, mingle, and enjoy being congratulated and hugged a lot!

There is plenty of outside furniture in the flagged courtyard in between the two magnificent stone barns. Guests can happily flow onto the Country House Lawn with drinks if you like and if it’s chilly the team will get the The West Barn toasty and serve your drinks inside. With their amazing no corkage drinks option, you can get creative with your drinks choices: will you invite guests to ‘pimp their prosecco’ or indulge in a craft beer (or two!)?

Held in The East Barn, your wedding breakfast is a celebratory feast of your choosing, enjoyed in the mesmerising setting of this stunning Grade II* listed wedding barn.

The warm tones of the natural stone, polished oak floor, exposed oak beams and super-cute stable doors make this a relaxed and delightful setting for your first meal as a married couple.

Barn wedding venues rarely offer clients the luxury of having a wedding barn so large that it can accommodate all your guests for the wedding breakfast, house an awesome dancefloor and a seriously cool bar with viewing balcony overlooking all the action below.

The East Barn is ideal for your wedding reception celebrations because everything you’ll need to celebrate in style is inside this amazing space and because no one has to relocate, you don’t lose any of the party atmosphere that’s built up during the day.
