2016 Award winners Lains Barn, offers a unique and versatile licensed venue for weddings, including civil ceremonies and receptions.
With a long history dating back to 1750, the classic timber former grain barn is nestled in peaceful Oxfordshire countryside. Flanked by picturesque fields, Lains Barn stands at the gateway to the North Wessex Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Accommodating up to 180 seated guests you can hold the celebration of your dreams in the beautiful oak beamed main barn, glass fronted byre or outside on the large lawned courtyard.
The Main Barn
Following its sensitive conversion, the Main Barn creates a rustic ambiance with quirky features including minstrel’s gallery and oak vaulted ceiling. Perfect for ceremonies and receptions, the space provides a stunning backdrop for your choice of decorations. Huge barn doors open majestically onto the beautifully maintained lawned courtyard allowing you to make the most of both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Glass Fronted Byre
Full length sliding glass doors can be opened to the courtyard, making this stunning setting a versatile space for dining, receptions or drinks.
Open fronted covered wing
For long lazy summer evenings the open fronted covered wing provides an alternative to the glass fronted Byre. Overlooking the courtyard and situated directly opposite the main barn it is the perfect setting for outdoor ceremonies and as an extension to the other spaces.
