We looked around lots of venues but the minute we walked into Winters Barns we knew it was perfect for us. Everything we needed was provided and we could personalise our wedding exactly how we wanted. Our wedding planner, Lizzie, was absolutely amazing and we can’t thank her enough for everything she did for us in the build up to our wedding and on the day itself. We had so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the venue was and how lovely the food tasted. We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day the best day of our lives.

We had a the most special day of our lives at Winters Barns. When we first viewed the venue we fell in love with it’s charm and the process from booking to the day was fantastic. The team went above and beyond to made sure we had the perfect day and nothing was too much to ask. Sally was brilliant on our wedding day, she made sure I knew exactly what I needed to be doing and when and took the stress out of the preparations. We were both blown away with the little touches Winters Barns offered over some of the other wedding venues we viewed and the additions that were made to the venue even during the 14 months it took us from booking to our wedding day. We had so many compliments from our guests on the venue and how smooth the day ran, the attention to detail, and the professionalism and friendliness of all of the staff. Our wedding day was an exceptionally hot day and although the part of the barns is air conditioned, the wedding breakfast room got quite hot even with the doors open so this would be one thing that I would say could be a potential improvement to the venue in the future. Luckily we had purchased fans for our guests as a precaution, these came in very handy! We wanted to mention the staff from Scott Anderson, the way we were served during our wedding breakfast and the appearance of the staff was flawless. The waiters and waitresses were so in sync and it made the experience feel that bit more special by the way they all served at the same time and were so professional. Tim & the bar staff – exceptional. Could not fault the bar service at all. Tim made our booking process so simple and made sure we had everything we wanted and needed. If we could do the day again, we would in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for making our wedding day unforgettable.

A huge thank you for making our dream day come true! We couldn’t have asked for our day to run any smoother and that is down to you Sally! We will 100% be recommending Winters Barns to everyone we know, and many of our guests commented on what a beautiful venue you run. We can never thank you enough, but another huge thank you to you all.
Zoe & Mark
Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and this is almost entirely down to Lizzie and the team at Winters Barn. We knew from the moment we viewed the venue that it was the place for us and the fact we had the option of having Lizzie on board sold it to us immediately. Throughout the whole process, everyone in the team has been approachable, helpful and full of enthusiasm, not one thing we asked we were told we couldn’t do or have, everyone was so accommodating. We found the whole process very organised, was very grateful of the guidance from Lizzie and the professionalism at all times. The venue is beyond stunning and we visited a number of times, each time we were made to feel special. We were fully aware that this is a popular venue but not once were we made to feel like we were one of many couples getting married there, it was always only about us and our special day. Lizzie and the suppliers recommended on the day were unbelievable, the venue looked stunning and we were so touched by the amount of effort that was put into it for us. We loved the fact everything was broken down for us the following day and that the whole experience from day one was so seamless, easy going and relaxed. Not once did we feel worried or concerned about a single element of our day because we knew it was in very capable, caring hands. The best thing for us since the wedding day is the amount of compliments we’ve had about the venue, the staff, the food and location. We were unbelievably proud to say we got married at Winters Barns and loved all the compliments. We will never be able to thank you all enough for everything you did for us and for making our day so special. I will always be grateful and recommend you guys forever more.

I am so happy we chose the barns for our wedding, they were so helpful throughout the whole process but really did such a good job on the day organising everything and allowing me to relax and get ready. Every guest who attended has remarked on how beautiful the barns are and especially how fantastic the food was from Scott Anderson’s. The service from all staff was absolutely brilliant and I would recommend this venue to everyone.
