Lakeside Wedding Receptions & Celebrations
The most popular location for marquees is a large beautiful tranquil area by the lake, which can accommodate both large and small marquees avoiding any restrictions to be placed on the number of guests you want to invite. Located away from the main Barleylands complex, it is also private and secluded.
Organizing your Wedding Reception, Party or event
We understand that a wedding or celebration can be very expensive, so we give you the option of hiring a beautiful piece of countryside for you to organise your own wedding reception, to tailor make your own reception to your style and budget.
- We can give you the contact details of companies that supply marquees, toilets & generators or you are welcome to arrange your own.
- The marquee companies (depending on who you use) will also be able to supply you with flooring, tables, chairs, generators and lighting.
- You can arrange for your own caterers or we have two restaurants based at Barleylands that would be happy to supply you with a quote for a sit down meal, buffet or even a BBQ.
- Plenty of space for a children’s play zone, where you could hire in a bouncy castles and children’s play equipment to keep them entertained.
- We have local hotels for your guests to stay or we have a campsite at Barleylands for those that wish to bring caravans or tents.
