The Great Barn comprises two large interconnecting barns, The Aynho Room and The Croughton Room, which are both licensed for Civil Ceremonies. The Croughton Room seats up to 140 for a formal meal and is also the main dining and dancing area. Once the ceremony is finished guests make their way through to The Aynho Room for drinks, canapés and photographs whilst The Croughton Room is prepared for The Wedding Breakfast. The Dressing Room is also available for the bride and her entourage to get ready in.
The barns have been sympathetically converted to retain many of their original charm, along with the beautiful arrow slit windows, natural stone 2 foot thick walls, exposed beams and boasting two log fires. Decoration of The Great Barn includes historic tapestries, solid oak furniture with leather sofas and candles and tea- lights in the recesses.
There are two minstrel galleries, one small one in The Croughton Room and a larger one in The Aynho Room. These galleries make excellent areas for photographers to take large group photos and for Quartets to play.
The capacity of The Great Barn is 140 for a sit down wedding breakfast and up to 250 for informal receptions. There is no minimum number requirement and the barn suits both small and large functions.
