The Setting

The Great Barn is an 18th century spacious double stone barn set in 250 acres of beautiful farmland and grounds. Their lakes, woods and fields provide a beautiful, romantic backdrop for your special day, away from it all.

Situated on the Oxfordshire/Northamptonshire border, they are easily accessible from the M40 (junction 10) and 10 minutes from Bicester and Banbury train stations.

The Vibe

The Great Barn is a warm, relaxed rustic venue where you can make the day your own. With high beamed ceilings, open log fires and creamy stone walls, it is lighter, larger and more spacious than many barns. The three-foot thick stone walls keep guests cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Outside, guests can enjoy a sun-soaked summer afternoon on their south-facing patio backed by a gorgeous trailing wisteria while the happy couple have a moment to themselves down at the lakes or in their grounds. The Patio has extensive seating, rose arches and outside sofas around a fabulous firepit for cosy summer evenings and BBQs.

For more intimate ceremonies (max 50) your guests can be seated on the patio whilst you tie the knot under the wisteria framed doorway.

The venue hire includes:

Garden Cottage

Light and airy, and recently refurbished to a high standard, the cottage has a small fully fitted kitchen downstairs and two large bedrooms upstairs – one with a kingsize bed, one with twin beds.

The bathroom is also huge, with a shower and original herringbone parquet flooring. Complete with Egyptian cotton linen and soft fluffy towels, the cottage offers a luxurious yet relaxing experience. A short walk across the Patio Garden from the barn, the front door is only 50 yards away and is the perfect place to rest and recover from the excitement of the day.

Continental breakfast is provided with plenty of croissants and pastries with jams & butter, yoghurts, and fresh fruit. Keys will be available from 1pm (their team are happy to put your bags in the Cottage for you) and guests must have vacated before 11am the following morning.

Available at extra cost to the bridal couple and their children (under 16s) for their wedding night only.
