In the secluded setting of the Surrey Hills, 5 miles south of Guildford lies Gate Street Barn, a truly magnificent place for any special occasion. Gate Street Barn is built in the traditional style using wood from oak trees lost on the farm in the 1987 hurricane. Gate Street Barn boasts beautiful landscaped gardens and views of the working organic farm and a hobby herd of English Longhorn cattle. There is ample all-weather parking!
Their colourful, evergreen gardens make an ideal setting for a stunning spring / summer reception and their atmospheric lighting and wood burning stoves enhance the cosy and warm ambiance for an autumn / winter event.
They have a capacity for up to 150 seated guests and can accommodate 200 for an evening reception or less formal occasion.
Their fabulous facilities are;
No additional venue cost for Civil Marriages.
Choice of 6 excellent Caterers to suit all tastes and budgets.
Tables and lovely oak chairs included.
Bridal Room with private bathroom and driveway.
Ample all-weather free parking.
Licensed paying bar available to hire.
On site accommodation for up to 28 people.
No music turn-down policy.
And, best of all, NO CORKAGE or chilling charge.
Luxury On-Site Accommodation
Adjacent to the venue, the Farmhouse has seven double bedrooms, mostly ensuite, two of which are on the ground floor for easy access. Some rooms can be made up as doubles or twins.
A traditional cooked breakfast is served in the dining room with a log fire in winter months, or outside under the loggia in summer. Check-in is midday, unless there is no booking the previous day, and check-out is 9.30am if there is another wedding the following day. This ensures exclusivity for each couple. In summer months, the heated swimming pool is open for an early morning dip and there is an all-weather tennis court.
The Shepherd’s Hut is their luxury ‘glamping’ option (although it does have a private bathroom attached to the Pheasantry). It is very much in the centre of the venue, complete with toaster and kettle. A continental breakfast provided.
The Hayloft is a more secluded option, which is all on the ground floor. It can be a double or a twin to suit, and has an ensuite shower room and mini kitchen. A continental breakfast provided.
The Stable Flat is a self-contained unit which is part of the main barn building. It has two double bedrooms, one of which can be made up as a double or a twin. There is also a sofa-bed option in the reception room. This is ideal for families or elderly guests, as it has a kitchen with all the usual facilities for making a full English breakfast which is left in the fridge for preparing at your convenience. Although there are a few steps, it is all on one level for easy access.
Choosing a Woodland Wedding means you have the freedom to create a completely personal ceremony and a unique setting!
The space is DIY so you have total flexibility to use it however you would like! You may decide to bring in more furniture and props or add to the woodlands with ferns and floristry. You can make the space wild and natural, go with a festival bohemian style or just the popular rustic feel. Be inspired by the space and the season of your wedding!
The natural light and greenery mean the area is already beautiful. With a traditional venue you can spend a lot of effort to bring the natural world indoors, with a woodland it is already all there!
We just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who made our daughter Susie and James’s wedding run so smoothly on Saturday. What a great venue for a winter wedding! Many guests commented to us about how perfect the venue was. We are so pleased we booked the farmhouse too – what a great asset that accommodation is… the rooms were all very warm and comfortable, and as for coming downstairs to the wonderful aroma of bacon cooking the next morning. Thank you team; we would have no hesitation in recommending Gate Street Barn to others.
Anne & Tony
A huge thank you from both of us for the most amazing day on Saturday. From our first visit to the barn with Lisa, we fell in love and knew it was the place we wanted to get married. Lisa made us feel comfortable and was super relaxed which is what we were looking for from our day. From that first meeting until last Saturday you have all been amazing. My stupid questions being answered efficiently and the clear timelines made it really easy and the day worked like clockwork. Thanks to Daniel for being our right hand man on the day and for ensuring everything worked perfectly – safe to say I was able to step off from my control freak perch so thank you very much! Nothing was too much bother for you and for that we are extremely grateful. A dream team, incredible venue and the best day of our lives. Thank you so much. We will never forget our day at Gate Street Barn.
Lucy & Jack
We wanted to send a formal thanks to you all for everything you did for us both in the run up and on the day itself! We were very wary that our format on the day was quite different to the norm, but although we’re pretty biased, we think it worked incredibly! It was of course also down to an amazing combo or yourselves, Gill Pike, Pesto and Chris Haslam each of whom really went above and beyond for us! It was truly the very best day of our lives and the photos we have to help us to re-live it on a pretty frequent basis. Many thanks again to you all!
Plum & Harry
Thank you ALL so much for such a perfect wedding day. We honestly couldn’t ask for a better venue or team, it was magical. Everyone was in love with the location and the beautiful barn itself. You have helped us so much and have been so responsive throughout all of the planning. It was such an easy and relaxed atmosphere from start to finish. We are so grateful for how lovely, kind and professional you all are. We can’t wait to return one day with all our incredible memories of our wonderful day.
Bethany & Joseph
To Everyone at Gate Street Barn – We just wanted to say a huge huge thank you for everything you did to help make our wedding everything we hoped for and more. You helped us stay organised and prepared before the day and ensured everything ran without a hitch. A special mention to India for calming Vicki’s last minute nerves and just generally being amazing. All of our guests have commented on how smoothly the day ran. You made everything happen whilst managing to be almost invisible! The venue is perfect, the surroundings are perfect and your team are perfect. Thank you again for making the start of our married life the best party we’ve had!
Olly and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you! From looking round in January 2018 to our wedding in December 2018, you were all absolutely incredible! It was the only venue we looked at as we just knew it was the one. Everyone was so communicative and helpful throughout the whole process and India was the dream on the day – thank you for keeping us all so calm and together! We have had so many compliments from friends and family about the venue and the whole day. If we ever do it again, we will definitely come back!
Lolly & Olly
Thank you SO much for all your help leading up to and on our actual BIG DAY! You made everything seem so easy and stress free. The Barn looked absolutely incredible! We are so thankful we were able to have our reception there. It was everything we dreamt of and more. Thanks to the two lovely female staff members who came to the rescue with umbrellas when I was getting out the car!
Annie & Jordan
We just wanted to say the biggest thank you to you all! We had such an incredible day! We are currently sitting on our honeymoon and all we can talk about are the little stunning details which you helped create. Everyone keeps saying to us how stunning the venue is and how we came across it! Your team were amazing from start to finish, more then we could have ever asked for. Even had Kirsty, the bar manager, tying my dress together at one point for the evening dancing. India you were amazing answering all of the emails and questions I asked you before the big day and keeping me organised with everything, which was a challenge in itself so well done! Just thank you so much again!
Maddie & Luke
I just wanted to drop you a quick note from Jamie and I to say a huge thank you for all your help. Talking to friends and family this week we have heard multiple times how slick, seamless and relaxed it was. Everyone loved the venue and were kept toasty warm even in early January. Thank you for all of your help with moving all the decorations to the kitchen so we could pick them up the next day too – made our lives so easy! We had the most wonderful day.
