The Great Barn

Upper Aynho Grounds, AYNHO, Banbury, Oxfordshire, OX17 3AY

Encircled by a patchwork of tranquil fields The Great Barn offers a versatile and idyllic setting for weddings and civil ceremonies.

The venue is comprised of two traditional 18th Century barns and set in 250 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. Within the grounds, are lakes and woodlands which provide a stunning backdrop for photographs.

Despite its secluded ambiance, The Great Barn is conveniently located close to the M40 and offers ample parking for up to 300 cars.


The venue encompasses two interconnected charming barns, The Aynho Room and The Croughton Room. Both are licensed for civil ceremonies and have a combined capacity of up to 140 dining guests or 250 reception guests. Following a sensitive conversion in 1986, the barns boast an array of historic features including stone walls, minstrel’s galleries, exposed wooden beams and feature fireplaces. An additional dressing room was added last year to provide a peaceful space for either the bride and her entourage to prepare.


The dedicated and hugely experienced wedding team offer a range of customisable packages. They will support each couple throughout the process from the initial meeting right through to the last dance.


The Great Barn’s flexibility is also reflected in their catering with a la carte to informal hog roasts available. The Head Chef works alongside each couple to create bespoke menus that utilise fresh, locally sourced and seasonal produce.
