The feel

Set in 250 acres of landscaped grounds on the Oxfordshire/ Northamptonshire border, The Great Barn is a beautiful, romantic venue which oozes historic charm. The converted 18th century barn is divided into two rooms, The Aynho and Croughton Rooms, which are both licensed for civil ceremonies. The Great Barn has been sympathetically converted to retain many of its original charm, along with the beautiful arrow slit windows, natural stone 2 foot thick walls, exposed oak beams and log fires. The Croughton Room can sit up to 144 for your wedding breakfast and holds up to 175 for evening guests. However, the barn has a wonderful relaxed, intimate feel and suits smaller weddings as well.

Family-run, we are within easy reach of Oxford, Banbury, Northampton and Milton Keynes and take great pride in making your day the best day of your life. Our wedding co-ordinator will help plan the event and allow you to enjoy your big day, safe in the knowledge that you are in expert hands. Couples have exclusive use of the venue and grounds and the day is tailored to suit your exact requirements with no minimum spend on the bar or catering. Garden Cottage is also available on-site to the couple on the night of their wedding.

Discounts are offered for weddings taking place in low season, please contact us or visit our website for more information.
