About


Situated in glorious English countryside, Bassmead Manor Barns is the ultimate rural setting for a romantic country wedding.

The romantic ambience of Cambridgeshire’s Bassmead Manor Barns is apparent from the moment you arrive along the tree-lined driveway. Charming and elegant, this family-owned barn, nestled within the medieval moat of an ancient manor house, offers a heady combination of history and heritage, alongside contemporary style and exceptional service.

Couples are invited to tie the knot in the 300-year old Rickety Barn, a lovingly restored traditional timber barn with solid oak beams and wrought iron chandeliers. With twinkling fairy lights, it’s the perfect space for that ‘I do’ moment. Seating up to 150 guests, it also features a ‘nook’ on the second floor, the ideal spot for a photographer or musician.

After the ceremony has taken place, invite your guests to enjoy reception drinks in the modern Moat Barn with its sophisticated bar, spilling out on to the pretty landscaped gardens to mingle amongst the peacocks.

We chose Bassmead Manor Barns from the first impressions of the whole place we fell in love with it. It was everything we were looking for. The most important thing to us was to find somewhere the civil ceremony would be held - it was special in its own way and not just a room like other places. When we saw the Rickety Barn our breath was taken away, we knew it was the place for us and the fact it was private to us and our guests, we could have as many guests as we wanted as we only wanted a small personal wedding. We felt so comfortable and that it was made it for us.
Everyone was so lovely and made us feel that nothing was too much, that we could make it personal to us and have what we wanted – this was the icing on the cake for us as for Richard to be able drive a truck to the wedding and have photos with it meant so much to him and made it more our day.

We fell in love with Bassmead on our first viewing (it was the first and only venue we ever saw). It ticked all the boxes of allowing us to have our wedding ceremony and reception in one place. There were gorgeous surroundings, the venue was set up to be easily accessible by all (including wheelchair users) and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The barns were rustic, but beautifully finished and everywhere within the venue felt light, airy and romantic. It basically gave us goosebumps as soon as we walked in.

We do not live near Cambridge but Martin took me on a romantic weekend there and we fell in love with it, the place has so much history. Also the venue is very idyllic and I wanted to get married in a barn as this is very romantic and wanted a more shabby chic/vintage type of wedding.

From the moment Nick and I drove up the oak lined drive we both looked and each other and said WOW! Set on acres of farmland it naturally creates a very private and quiet setting. We first went on an Open Day and despite the crowds the Bassmead staff were so inviting and welcoming. We then arranged a private showround, it was then that we just knew this was the place we wanted our family and friends to attend our special day. It had everything we wanted. The first time you walk into Rickety barn you get such a warm feeling. It feels intimate and special. The reception room blends the old with the new so well. The arched beams, fairy lights and perfectly placed drapes. Then what a bonus you not only have the Bridal Boudoir to get ready but Dove Cottage to stay the night. Additional extra was Appletree Cottage where our immediate family could stay. All beautifully decorated with luxurious fabrics and furnishings. But what really takes Bassmead to the next level is the service you receive from the Events Team. We were lucky enough to have Hayley and she is a real gem. Nothing too big or too small. Her attention to detail and calm nature really helped us pull off an incredible day.

We were looking for a barn style venue that could hold both the ceremony and reception. With James’ profession and my love of interior design and the countryside, we couldn’t have found a better venue. The exposed beams and brickwork in the Rickety Barn finished with fairy lights are stunning and the whole look and feel of the place made us instantly fall in love with it. We liked the warm, welcoming feel we received when we looked around and felt it had everything we could possibly need in the most incredible setting. The surrounding area provides the perfect backdrop for photographs and the outdoor area is ideal for warmer weddings where guests can sit outside. We loved that everything is in one place and easy to get from one area to the other, as well as the accommodation for family as well as the bride and groom.

We chose Bassmead because it had everything we wanted – a beautiful setting, it’s close to home, it had accommodation for us and our family, and we could have our ceremony and reception all at the same location. We loved that there was a rustic feel to Bassmead, but it was enough of a blank canvas that we knew we’d be able to bring our own ideas and style to it.

Having visited a couple of other venues it was only when we entered the 300 year old Rictory Barn could we imagine exchanging our vows with each other. The whole venue radiated an elegant charm with beautiful surroundings. We couldn’t imagine a better place to enjoy our special day.

I was lucky enough to get married at Bassmead on Saturday and I can honestly say it was the best day if my life! Bassmead was the only venue I had looked at and although everyone told me to look around plenty of venues, I don't regret it at all in the slightest! I knew from day one of looking around the venue that it was the one for me and I was certainly right!
The staff have been so supportive and lovely and made the whole experience so relaxed and stress free! With the build up to the wedding people kept asking if I was stressed yet and the answer was always no (aside from when I had to keep changing the table plan numerous times because numbers kept changing) but this was because the staff were always there to answer questions and help me to solve any problems my end! I must give a special mention to Becky...she's been fab and it was so nice to have her there on the day...so professional and attentive. I remember Becky saying to me that on the day she will be there when we need her and slip into the background when we don't and I've had soooo many comments about how guests noticed this too. Someone said to me 'it's like the staff can read my mind because if I wanted something I turned around and they were there, otherwise we didn't notice they were around'! It was just fabulous!
And now onto the food! It was incredible! And this is another thing that I have had so many comments about from guests! 'Best meal I've ever had' 'top notch food' 'that beef Wellington was the best I've ever had'. When I sat down at the table next to my dad he said 'did u have the canapés, they were incredible' then he got his main meal and he was so impressed with the high standard that he kept calling Becky over to tell her and in his speech he personally thanked the chef and staff in the kitchen. Much deserved. Thankyou Galloping Gourmet!
I know I'd be biased if I said it was the best wedding I've ever been to but it wasn't just me who thought it! So many people have told me that it was the best wedding they had been to...one even admitted it was better than her own!! I cannot recommend Bassmead Manor Barns highly enough. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for such an amazing day!
