Everything from start to finish for our wedding was amazing. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. The barn itself is a lovely venue - we wanted a smaller wedding and the venue was perfect. It is beautiful inside and out. The hotel is also great - the rooms are

Thank you the Tithe Barn for an amazing day! Kinga was brilliant before the wedding and on our day, she dealt with any issues that arose quickly and efficiently. Mags was also great helping with everything including my decorations, it was like she read our minds :) We had a perfect day, thank you

It was always a dream that if I was to get married it would be at the Barns venue having gone past it hundreds of time thinking what a lovely place it looked and I am glad that I did. From the onset of visiting the Barns (now Tithe Barn), booking the wedding, detailing what the wedding would entail

to the actual wedding weekend this July 2023, the staff have been wonderful, professional and caring about our wedding day and the details that we wanted. Despite the rain we had on the day, the wedding itself was an amazing day and the hotel and surroundings are absolutely beautiful. The food and drink chosen for the event was exemplary with no food going to waste, great portion sizes where no one went hungry or thirsty. Thank you to the staff for making our day so special.- Debs and Robbie x

are other elements that were poor but these have been dealt with. These things didn't ruin our day but also didn't improve it either.
