the great barn, aynho
A privately owned idyllic 18th century venue set in 250 acres of rolling farmland – the perfect location to have your wedding, reception or private function. The capacity of The Great Barn is 140 for a sit down wedding breakfast and up to 200 for informal receptions.
The venue comprises two beautifully restored 18th century stone barns which were built in 1770 as part of The Cartwright Estate in Aynho. The Aynho Room and The Croughton Rooms are both licensed for Civil Ceremonies.
The Croughton Room seats up to 140 for a formal Wedding Breakfast and is also where your civil ceremony takes place earlier in the day. It then turns itself into a fantastic dance area. There is also a minstrel’s gallery which offers an excellent area for your photographer to take shots of your big day.
The Aynho Room hosts the bar and more relaxed occasional seating area - a great place for mingling during the Reception and an excellent vantage point for those who wish to sit and watch the throng without feeling left out.
The Dressing Room is a relaxing, luxurious space designed for the bride and her entourage to get ready in. Alternatively, the bride may wish to hire The Dressing Room for a half day after the ceremony and use it as a place to escape to and refresh her makeup etc.
Set in 250 acres of working farmland with beautiful landscaped grounds, The Great Barn offers stunning views over rolling Oxfordshire countryside. Stroll beneath our majestic beech trees or use the bridges over our lakes to provide fantastic back drops for your wedding photos.
The secluded Patio Garden and large terrace offers plenty of outdoor space for guests to enjoy the sunshine, play garden games or simply relax around the firepit in the evening. The patio has plenty of evening lighting and fairy lights festoon the trees and stables.
The Great Barn is able to offer Outdoor Ceremonies between May-September only (weather dependant). We can sit up to a maximum of 50 on the patio – although those seated at the very edges may have a restricted view.The Bride & Groom themselves must stand just inside the barn doors for the official part of the ceremony (where the barn is licenced) and the legal paperwork must remain on the tables inside.
