Review on TripAdvisor from an eloping couple at Lower Barns

“Excellent – Beyond Words!!”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 3 days ago NEW

What a fantastic and beautiful place Lower Barns is. 5 Stars just doesn’t do this review or location any

justice what so ever. My wife and i decided to elope here and from start to finish the whole process was flawless and intimate – well it was just perfect! In all fairness I wasn’t even up for getting married, it was finding Lower Barns that made me WANT to get married. It was personal, intimate, beautiful surroundings with amazing hosts – everything we ever wanted!

As soon as we turned up we knew that we stumbled across something very special. Im quite an outspoken person who usually has plenty to say but i was literally speechless for at least the first day. The grounds were stunning, the location was perfect and glorious, the accommodation which we stayed in (The Nook) was phenomenal, every little detail was above any expectation we had and far exceeded any previous accommodation we have ever stayed at.

In my opinion, a wedding is about the 2 people getting married and what that symbolises, not about the stress, the “people pleasing” and spending god knows how much money on one day. Lower Barns created our perfect day for us and we were made to feel beyond special. We were so relaxed on the day that my wife to be, was stressed that she had nothing to be stressed about, having previously been involved with friends weddings and being a bridesmaid etc and i was so relaxed that i was drinking a nice coffee on the grounds 30 minutes before the ceremony.

More importantly, which i feel i have to mention in this review is Janie and Mike, the hosts. From the minute we turned up, it was like we always knew them. Nothing was too much trouble and we thoroughly appreciated all that they did for us. We felt welcomed, looked after and more importantly they created the perfect wedding day for us which will be remembered for a lifetime. This was definitely not the usual run of the mill wedding which most locations seem to churn out in a business like fashion!

We were both extremely upset that we had to go home, not only because it was so nice here but because we would also miss Janie, Mike and of course Janie’s Mum Alice who was an absolute diamond! Thank you so much for everything and we look forward to seeing you next year where we will definitely return for our 1st anniversary.

Room Tip: I think any of the rooms that you would book here would be equally amazing!
