Lillibrooke Manor and Great Barn offers a stunning venue and exquisite food; surrounded by 15 acres of meadows and paddocks. The Great Barn is one of the largest in the south, and shows off its impressive periodic features, like the wrought iron chandeliers. Large enough for 170 guests for a sit down meal and 220 guests for the evening celebrations, this barn is full of character and charm.

The stunning Great Barn, the intimate Small Barn, the romantic Cloistered Garden and the quirky Engine House; it's the ideal venue for a rustic style wedding, with surroundings including the medieval manor house and gorgeous gardens.


Lillibrooke Manor was first mentioned in public records in 1376 when Thomas de Lollebrok appeared in court to prove ownership of it. The land had been in the family since 1292 and thrived in the area for well over 100 years. In 1412 it was taken away from the family as a result of them supporting Richard II. It was then passed to the Martyn family who built the manor house in 1490, which currently stands there today.

During Oliver Cromwell's commonwealth, the estate was confiscated as a penalty for the family's catholic beliefs. There were rumours of an existence of a priest hole in the property.

Up to 1988 Lillibrooke Manor and Barns were part of a working farm. In the same year, the grain drying bins were removed from the barns to reveal the space that is the Great Barn. Since 2015 it's been under new ownership who focus on preserving and enhancing the historical house.


Lillibrooke Manor is unique in its flexibility to suite the bride and grooms needs. There is a choice of three barns and gardens to use however you desire.

The Great Barn

This is one of the main features of the manor and is the largest grade II listed barn in the south of England. Its stunning, grand beamed ceiling and wrought iron chandeliers create a rustic style. This multi-use space can be used not only for your breakfast and evening but can also be used to accommodate a larger ceremony.

There is plenty of space for a DJ and dance floor and the barn has its very own built in permanent PA system. They also have a fairly large sized bar built in to this space.

Ceremony capacity - 170 guests
Wedding Breakfast capacity - 170 guests
Reception capacity - 220 guests

Small Barn

As a smaller barn, it has the feel of a small country church. Its simple style creates a canvas for you to decorate in the style of your choice. It is the lighter of the two barns with a large windows and patio doors opening onto the gardens.

This space is also ideal for your guests to mingle at a drinks reception if you wish to have your ceremony elsewhere.

Ceremony capacity - 120 guests

Cloistered Gardens

The beautiful, quintessential gardens surrounded by fountains is perfect for a vintage reception. If you'd prefer to say your vows in the fresh air under an arch of flowers, this is perfect for you.

When the weather is glorious, guests can enjoy champagne and canapés out here.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 170 guests

Engine House

The Engine House is an 18th century extension for the Great Barn, historically used for threshing corn. This space is held up by beautiful wooden beams and pillars and can be used as a breakout area away from the evening reception or a chill out place for children.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 80 guests


The in-house caterers have over 30 years' experience in banqueting for large events and will create bespoke menus designed around the bride and groom. You can choose from a traditional three course breakfast, a BBQ or a Hog roast. They also offer canapés. Click here for sample menus.
