Facilities and services

Indoor and outdoor ceremonies are available. There are a variety of ceremony options from civil ceremonies to celebrant ceremonies as well as post-wedding celebrations. There is a bespoke barn that has been specifically restored for the exclusive use of the bride, her bridesmaids and mother of the bride to get ready in. There is a bridal suite with en-suite and a complimentary fresh farmhouse breakfast is available. The venue offers amazing caterers as well as a wood-fired pizza oven and a number of additional items such as a bespoke wooden sweet trolley, Pimm's and prosecco cart, Landrover for photos, and pre-ceremony drinks.


Special features

The barn is a 14th century Tythe barn and has been part of the family's working farm for more than 500 years. This beautiful barn has been restored using many materials from the farm so it retains an incredible amount of character, however the barn is equipped with all the up-to-date mod-cons and the venue has been kitted out with top quality products so the result is very much 'Rustic-Luxe'. The Bridal Suite is a charmingly rustic Shepherd's Hut while The Nook is the luxurious barn exclusively reserved for the bride and her bridesmaids to get ready in. It's perfection in the country.

Further special features include the expansive manicured lawns, pretty pergolas and pathways, and the large stone barn which oozes character think thick stone walls and exposed beams that are perfect for decking with fairy lights, flowers or bunting.

The family-run business is well known for its faultless attention to detail and the venue's award-winning in-house caterers are top-notch. The Tythe Barn provides you with a blank canvas upon which you can create the wedding day of your dreams and there's a small, friendly and dedicated team to help you every step of the way. The flexibility at The Tythe Barn is rather difficult to beat with options to wed indoors or outdoors; from choosing to share pizzas in the evening from the wood-fired oven and hog roast in the back gardens to the gin station on the old cart versus drinks from the old Landrover. Whatever you go for the dedicated and close-knit team provide on-going support and everything is executed to the highest of standards.
