I’m not long back after extended travelling and wanted to write to you re my booking with you at Barnabrow on 19 July. In short I want to extend a huge THANK YOU from myself and Julien to everyone at Barnabrow, and here’s why:

We had high expectations for our wedding, however Barnabrow

managed to exceed them on every level.
The service you provided on the day was beyond what we could have hoped for. Everyone of the staff were really friendly and engaging with everyone. Many of the wedding guests have commented on it. They were also really efficient and carried out their work on the day efficiently and professionally.
The food was truly amazing. From the breakfast experience to the wedding lunch and also the food provided later in the evening. The wedding lunch was exceptional and I can’t count the amount of positive feedback I have received. The shared plates was unique and delicious, and everything was cooked to perfection. Many of our wedding group are discerning foodies and they were all really impressed. And we all loved the wine, including the French

We would like to thank you all so much for our recent wedding at Barnabrow House (July 6th 2019)

Myself and Stephen were blown away by Barnabrow from day one and after
Seeing the venue knew it was for us. It was actually the only venue we visited.

From the day we booked to check out the day

after everything at Barnabrow has been so easy and made the whole process of wedding planning so much less stressful.

Every single guest on the day commented on the beauty of the house and the grounds, the very relaxed feeling and the outstanding food. It was our main hope for the day that everyone was well fed and relaxed and Barnabrow most definitely made this possible.

I would like to thank the reception/ wedding planning team, especially Amy, Susan, Jessica and Jess who were so helpful in guiding us through the entire process and the fastest email reply’s I have ever experienced.

Also thank you for being so accommodating to guests of mine who changed accommodation and had issues the day of. It was very much appreciated.

Can I in particular pay complement to the three bar men on the night. I apologise I didn’t get all their names. For the size of the wedding compared to the bar there was never a wait and everyone was complimenting them for their professional management of the bar and speed.

Can I pay a particular compliment to one of the bar men, Blake( I hope I have the name right). On the night we needed something to eat for my Mom who has recently been ill. As she had gone to
Bed we never thought to keep her some of the afters food and he really went above and beyond to help us in getting something for her late that night. He looked around and managed to find something suitable. This small gesture meant a lot to us and we are very grateful to him and impressed by his professionalism. We hope you will acknowledge this with him and please pass on our sincere gratitide.

We cannot fault the amazing service we received from Barnabrow from day one and would have no hesitation in recommending the venue to anyone for any occasion. We definitely hope to be back for celebrations in the future and make many more happy memories at Barnabrow.

Many thanks again,
Una and Stephen Grogan

We had our Wedding in Barnabrow last Month and I must say that from the second we drove up we knew it was the place for us and after dealing with Susan and Amy that certainty was further cemented. They are the most amazing ladies you could hope to have helping you plan your wedding. They were super

fast in all their responses and were always there to answer all our hundreds of questions! The day itself was pure magic, the sun shone even through there was a storm the day before and after and we'd like to think that the magic that Barnabrow holds was sprinkled on us that day. We got ready in the Cottages which are huge and well equipped, we had family from abroad and our own kids as well so the cottages were ideal for our needs. The drinks reception and canapés were delicious and with the weather so nice we were even able to have our musicians play outside while everyone enjoyed the decking and outdoor seating. Now the Food, there is only one word for the Food That Stuart sends out of his kitchen, Flawless! Every single guest adored the food and many have said they will be going back again for sunday lunch. The grounds are beautiful, spread out and quiet, but do bear in mind that there is a lot of steps if you have people in a wheelchair or elderly but there is always a solution so don't let that deter you from going to take a look at Barnabrow, you wont be disappointed. A special mention too for Marcel and all the amazing staff that looked after us during the day, you were all friendly, happy and courteous to the guests and many were singing your praises the next day! As we were there for a few days we had a BBQ the day after in the cottage, to be fair we had to eat inside as the weather was so shocking outside but wow again the food was amazing and lots of it. From both of us thank you so much for helping make our wedding such an amazing and memorable day.
