Reviews

  • Mr & Mrs Peckham

    We got married at Bassmead on the 25th of November 2017, the whole day ran so smoothly thanks to the amazing staff, nothing was to much trouble for them, especially Charlotte who organised everything for us, your enthusiasm and excitement really made our day. Our 2 year old boy loved staying in “Charlotte's house” (the cottage) he’s been walking around singing “Batman Charlotte Superman” since he met her.

    Our guests loved the place, and the food, it really is an amazing venue full of amazing people. The only problem was the day was over too quick.

    Thank you to everyone involved.

  • Nicola and James

    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.

  • Claire and Jonathan

    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.

  • Aimee and Richard

    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.
