If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!
Had our wedding here in Feb 2020. Ellie, Kay, Claire and all of the staff could not do enough for us. They really made sure the day went smoothly and I couldn't have asked for anything more from them. Huge shout out to Ellie in particular who was INCREDIBLE. We had lots of guests travelling from outside Hertfordshire who (when seeing the address) made a few comments about how far it was. When they arrived everyone said, 'We can see why you picked this venue!' Everything was perfect. The changeover from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast was so smooth and wasn't noticeable. The views are beautiful and I can't wait to see the professional photos. Cannot recommend this venue enough!!! The catering options were amazing - I recommend the BBQ sharing platters! I recommend visiting an open day if you are considering this venue. This was how we first saw the venue and were very impressed with how welcome the staff made us feel. There isn't a corporate feel to the place which we found at other venues. The glamping options also impressed us as did the bridal suite. If I could score higher than 5 stars, I would

The Barn at Alswick is such a special place
The Barn at Alswick is such a special place The venue was great for us as it’s not only gorgeously renovated but also disabled friendly. Ellie was great when we were planning our wedding, always replying to emails quickly and helping our ideas come to life. Ellie, Kay, Claire and the team were superb on the day, so calm and reassuring, we knew we were in safe hands! We loved staying in the glamping pods too - so comfy and the honeymoon suite is stunning So many of our guests said how much they loved the venue and the chilled day. We can’t thank everyone at The Barn enough, we had the most special day! X

Amazing day!
From start to finish, Kay and Ellie, the main points of contact for organising and planning, were fantastic with helping us achieve our dream day, always making us feel like we were in good hands. We used the brand new yurt village as accommodation for us and some of our guests - all the yurts were so cute and cosy and the bridal yurt (which is more like a mini house with separate rooms, tasteful furniture and an en suite bathroom) was simply stunning. Many of the guests remarked on how comfortable the beds were, saying they had a great night’s sleep! A lovely continental breakfast was provided too.

Kay and Ellie were so good with letting us set up for a few hours on the day before and were fine with me coming to the venue on the day a few hours earlier than originally planned, as well as letting my husband-to-be get on with set up in the morning on the day.

As an added bonus, the gardens are stunning and such a great setting for photos. We really wouldn’t have changed a thing about our day and are really happy we picked this venue.

Thank you so much Kay, Ellie and Claire!

Spring wedding
The Barn at Alswick was the first wedding venue my now husband and I went to view, we went up on an open day and fell in love with the venue. The simplicity and elegance of the place is amazing, we had a tour of the grounds from Ellie and fell more in love with it and knew it was the place we wanted to get married.

Kay and her team helped us through every decision and made our wedding smooth and stress free, and they couldn't have done anymore for us. The staff are excellent and so friendly.

All our guests were amazed by the venue and we have had so many compliments about it. Can't wait to get our pictures back from our day and be reminded of what a fantastic day we had at the barn.

We had our wedding day here and it was just the perfect venue. The staff are all amazing, and Kay helped us through everything, she couldn’t have done anymore for us. The venue itself is amazing, we had so many compliments since the wedding about how lovely it was, how well everything ran and well thought out things are. We got married here and it worked really well. The pictures for this place do not do justice for how incredible it is. We cannot recommend this venue enough. A massive thank you to everyone who helped on our day. You made it the best day ever for us.

Our wedding was enjoyed by everyone weve spoken t
Our wedding was enjoyed by everyone we've spoken to! We had a fantastic time and everything went so smoothly that we felt we could relax and really enjoy our day surrounded by family and friends. Thank you for your organisation, work behind the scenes including with our suppliers, and for being so reliable and flexible. Everyone we've come across at Alswick has been so friendly and absolutely lovely to work with. The Barn itself is such a beautiful building and will forever be special to us. It also looked great with all the candles on tables and in the windows! Overall, a massive thank you from us both :)

All the best,

Wonderful Wedding
We just wanted to say thank you so much to the Barn at Alswick for our wonderful wedding on the 20th October. We loved the barn from our first visit and couldn't have been happier with how the day went. Kay, Judy and the team were brilliant and made sure everything went to plan from start to finish. The staff on the day were attentive and friendly and the day ran so smoothly. All our family and friends commented on how lovely the barn and grounds were and there were so many lovely spots for photos. The courtyard was fantastic for our drinks reception and we especially enjoyed making the confetti runway! Ellie from Rose and Dandy captured the exact decor and style we wanted for the barn and we loved how everything looked from the wedding arch to tables! We also used one of the barn's recommended caterers - Saffron Catering, who were fantastic throughout the whole process. We couldn't recommend the barn enough as a wedding venue, thank you again for helping us create such amazing memories.

So many venues become a conveyor-belt of events, where weddings become less personal, less distinctive somehow. We saw an opportunity to offer something different, a far more individual experience, where we don’t have to abide a set format and strict rules.
