The feel

For an exquisite country escape and a delightful setting full of charm and character, this breathtaking barn wedding venue in Cheshire is the perfect place. Say ‘I do’ to rural bliss on the banks of a private lake at Sandhole Oak Barn. With rolling fields all around, you’ll feel miles away from anywhere, making Sandhole Oak Barn the ideal place for any country-loving couple.

For a ceremony with a difference, exchange your vows outside under the Oak Clock Tower, just a few feet from the lake. With the sun shining and your loved ones around you, there really is nowhere else quite like it.

The Oak Barn sits overlooking the tranquil lake and surrounding greenery and this enchanting space is divided into two parts. The Ceremony Barn lets you tie the knot with views of the lake behind you and the Dining Barn offers a wonderfully versatile space that’s ideal for intimate and larger weddings alike.

Wherever you hold your ceremony, soak up the tranquillity of Sandhole Oak Barn and enjoy a glass of bubbly and delicious canapes on the verandah. In the colder months, there is plenty of room in the barn to mingle with your nearest and dearest while still enjoying the gorgeous views through the panoramic windows.

The Dining Barn is naturally beautiful and comes with a neutral decor, making it versatile enough for you to decorate in any style. Throw open the French doors and let the summer breeze drift in or create an inviting feeling in the winter with underfloor heating and fairy lights all around. Whatever the season, the lake and verdant landscape provide an enchanting backdrop for your whole day. Expert caterers and wedding coordinators, Top Table, will ensure that your day runs perfectly to plan, while serving up the most amazing wedding food that’s all freshly prepared and locally sourced.

As well as exclusive use of the Oak Barn, you also have the Small Barn to enjoy. This characterful space sits just a few metres away and is ideal for welcoming guests before your wedding, entertaining younger guests, or for winding down at the end of the evening.

As the day turns to dusk, steal a few moments together as a married couple and watch the sunset over the lake from the verandah. It’s the perfect way to let your special day sink in at this unique Cheshire wedding venue.

Exclusive use of a gorgeous Dressing Room, spacious bridal suite, and extensive award-winning luxury accommodation is also available on-site through the separate Sandhole Farm B&B for you and 39 guests in their beautifully restored stables.

Sadly Sandhole Oak Barn can’t offer face-to-face show rounds for the time being. However, they are offering a virtual show rounds. Email [email protected] to book your virtual viewing today!
