History

Lillibrooke was first mentioned in public records in 1376 when Thomas de Lollebrok appeared in court to prove ownership of the property. 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 King 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 until 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 has been under the care of new owners who focus on preserving and enhancing the historical estate.

Facilities

Lillibrooke Manor is unique in its flexibility to suit the bride and groom's needs. There are three barns and three gardens for you to enjoy throughout the day, as well as, of course, the grounds that they are surrounded by.

The Great Barn

The Great Barn is the largest Grade II-listed barn in the south of England. Its stunning, beamed ceiling, iron chandeliers and low red brick walls create a rustic style. This multi-use space has a bar, dancefloor and garden with an outdoor pizza oven. There is plenty of space for a DJ and the barn even has its very own built-in permanent PA system.

Civil ceremony capacity - 170 guests
Wedding breakfast capacity - 170 guests
Evening reception capacity - 220 guests

The Small Barn

As a smaller barn, it has a cosy and romantic feel. Its simplistic style, with white-painted bricks and wood wall features, creates a canvas for you to decorate in the barn in your wedding theme. It is the lighter of the two barns with a large window and wooden doors opening onto the Cloister Garden. This space is also ideal for your guests to mingle at a drinks reception if you wish to have your ceremony elsewhere.

Civil ceremony capacity - 130 guests

Cloister Garden

The well-manicured garden is coloured with seasonal flowers throughout the year, with a gorgeous central flowerbed and fountain. If you'd prefer to say your vows in the fresh air under an arch of flowers, this romantic space is perfect for you. It also suits well as a drinks reception and a space for garden games. When the weather is glorious, guests can enjoy Champagne and canapés in this hidden garden.

Civil ceremony capacity - 170 guests

The Engine House

The Engine House is an 18th century extension of The Great Barn, historically used as a place for threshing corn. This room has beautiful wooden beams and pillars and can be used as a breakout area away from the evening reception, with entertainment such as photo booths, or used a place to relax for those who need it.

Civil ceremony capacity - 80 guests

Reviews

  • Genevieve and Jack - August 19

    Thank you also for your help in making our day so special. We loved every moment and your team did a great job, and Sam was very helpful on the day!

  • Ella - August 19

    I was a guest at Nicole and Ibrahim's wedding on August 8th. I just wanted to say thank you so much to Vincent and the rest of the team for accommodating me so well - I'm vegan and gluten free, so I never expect to eat much when I go out, but Vincent and the chef made sure I had superb food and I could eat it safe in the knowledge that all allergies were catered for. It was a real pleasure, and Vincent went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable. It is a rare experience to be accommodated, and in such a way that I wasn't made to feel like a nuisance or a burden - such a treat! Many thanks for your hard work, and for making it such a pleasurable experience!

  • Kelly and Stefan - July 19

    Friday was by far the most amazing day, a day full of memories that we will cherish forever. Thank you so so much to the Lillibrooke team for making the day possible. Everything went so smoothly and there was not a single issue. Your staff were amazing and we cannot thank you guys enough! The venue was absolutely beautiful and we have had so many lovely comments about how amazing the food and staff were. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.

  • Penny - Jun 19

    It was the most WONDERFUL day. I cannot express enough how fantastic your venue, staff, and organisers were. From the first viewing to the last guests leaving, it was absolutely the best choice for the special day, and everyone commented on how beautiful it was. Your staff are professional, helpful and calming! Every step of the way I felt we were in safe hands and the end resulting party was just the best! I must single out Fiona (it's all going to be fine Mrs Maynard!), Jazz (who ran the bar with military precision), but most of all, Vincent. Vincent was the most professional, efficient, friendly and caring event manager I have ever come across (and I have run events, including weddings, for 40 years). He absolutely nailed the whole day. His attention to detail, and ability to spot potential problems and deal with them, was amazing. The guests all commented on how great he was and how well he looked after us all. Please do pass on my heartfelt thanks to him and tell him that he really did make the day extra special. So thank you Lillibrooke! I know probably everyone calls and writes to say how fantastic their wedding was, but I know that a brilliant wedding starts with a brilliant venue, and Lillibrooke Manor is certainly that.

  • Ksenia and Iain - June 19

    On the day, Vincent the event manager was fantastic! He kept everything in control in a very calm and reassuring manner, from the moment we arrived to after we left. He was so attentive to detail and making sure all guests were comfortable and looked after. The registrar was running a bit late, so Vincent made sure we had some water in the bridal room and chatted to us about the process whilst we were waiting. My mum was nervous I think and not sure where to walk (she was giving me away) etc so his advice really helped! He personally greeted us with bubbly after the ceremony which was much appreciated otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to get a sip with everything going on! He was flexible with timings on the day which was much appreciated by us and the photographer as we ran a bit behind due to the initial delay with ceremony. We had forgotten dietary requirements for our expecting friends. Two of them didn’t want to risk a carpaccio tuna or a soft cheese starters, so Vincent quickly sorted them out with vegan starters. They were very appreciative and told us how nice that was of him to check in with them. In the evening Vincent personally made sure that our vegan and dairy-free guests got vegan ice creams. All of them were so chuffed with being thought. The food was amazing! Everyone loved it, all of it. My husband’s auntie is a catering consultant and she was very impressed; that says something! The event manager Alys was very helpful in the lead up to our big day, answering the multitude of our questions and being so flexible with things that we wanted.

  • Deven and Carl - February 19

  • Matt and Katie - October 18

    Thank you for all your help in making our day, the day we wanted. The day went by in a flash and we want to do it all over again - even with the rain! All of the staff were lovely and our guests had only nice things to say. We will absolutely share some photos when we receive them.

  • David and Ines - October 10

    Our wedding day was simply perfect and exceeded our expectations by far! Louise did an amazing job of coordinating everything, and we didn’t even have to look at the clock once. All our guests said how beautiful everything was and how perfectly everything was organised. We couldn’t be happier with the Lillibrooke team and would always choose this venue again.

  • Becky and Ian - September 18

  • Lucy and John - September 18

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Vincent, Ellie, the chefs and waiting staff, and the whole team who made our day so special. It was such a pleasure getting married at Lillibrooke Manor, and so many of our friends and family commented on how amazing the venue was. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.

  • Pam - January 18

    My husband and I want to thank you and all the Lillibrooke staff for the excellent work you did on Saturday to make Aline and Matt's wedding so special. From the young women who set the room up, through the staff on the day to the organisation of our property for collection on Sunday, everything went smoothly.

    Our special thanks also to the catering staff for the delicious food. Even the rain, couldn't spoil the wonderful day you all worked so hard to create.

  • Angelica & Michael - March 18

    On behalf of Angelica and I, I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to the team, especially our event manager, Louise on the day.

    The day ran flawlessly and your staff were so accommodating. We received nothing but compliments about the venue from our friends and family, and we got some amazing snowy shots!

    Thank you so much again, it truly was the most amazing day of our lives thanks to you and your team.
