We offer exclusive hire of The Barns and welcome applications from people looking to hold dignified and beautiful celebrations and other events, fitting for this wonderful venue. Set in beautiful Surrey countryside, Gildings Barns comprises of several interconnecting barns, all of which retain their original charm and character and have not been spoilt by modernisation.

Gildings Barns is also an ideal film location. Just 6 miles south of Dorking, Surrey, it is set in tranquil Surrey countryside, surrounded by open fields lined with mature woodland. The interconnecting traditional oak-framed barns create a unique and dramatic atmosphere, and are ideally laid out to ensure a natural flow of guests on site. The Threshing Reception Barn houses a collection of vintage agricultural tools and equipment, typical of those used in the era in which the front barns were built and our restored horse-drawn farm wagons provide wonderful photo backdrops.

We offer a choice of four local and absolutely first-class catering partners, and can also recommend other tried and tested local suppliers. Gildings is a licensed venue, meaning you can conduct your legally binding wedding ceremony on site, and then have your celebrations afterwards without your guests having to move on to another location.

Venue owners so lovely. What with the last year and potentially this year being rubbish too with Covid I just hope our wedding goes ahead. We haven’t thought of honeymoon yet because we are too worried so would love to win a honeymoon when we can do it

We had such a great day on Saturday - Gildings Barn was perfect and everything we imagined and hoped for. The lights looked great in the main barn and everyone commented on the great atmosphere it created. Thank you for all your help in organising the event both in the run up and on the night. Richard you were great along with Hilary in ensuring the temperature was comfortable. We will certainly be recommending Gildings Barn to other couples.

We had the most amazing day - the venue was so perfect and versatile. It has its own beauty and character but also scope to have your own unique wedding depending on how you wish to decorate it. The most important thing for me was to create a good atmosphere - a real celebration - and the venue was such a big part of this! The Gildings Barn team are also fantastic. Penny was so available for any question no matter how small and super quick to reply to everything - super efficient! Penny is also extremely helpful and was around when setting up for any queries and just making sure everything was ready to go smoothly. Hilary was also amazing and went the extra mile whether it was scoping out the stage for party games and just being around for some reassurance and help around the day. For both of them - all done with kindness and a genuine enthusiasm! Also special thanks to Richard who no doubt did a lot behind the scenes!

The whole thing was stress free and I always felt like I was in a very safe pair of hand and the results were incredible! Every guest loved it and so did I - thank you so much!

Just a line to thank you and your team for a spectacular day, the occasion of my daughter Freya's marriage to Luke. Nothing could have been finer!! Everything was a like the proverbial well oiled machine! Well done to you all.' (Father of the Bride).

We had the most fantastic day and I MUST say that Hilary was amazing! She is the most kind and collected lady and completely relaxed me on the day and I felt very well looked after!! Chris Moon was the bees knees and his staff were incredible! Very attentive and I was not without a drink in my hand the whole day and evening haha! Thanks again for everything!' (Bride & Groom).
