tythe.

Located on the outskirts of Launton in rural Oxfordshire, Tythe is a collection of 14th century barns and a 15th century farmhouse. This utterly charming setting has an abundance of character and charm evident from the moment you turn down the long sweeping drive. Hidden behind the huge rustic barn doors you will be transported into a wedding haven; oak beams dressed with glittering fairy lights, festoon lights peeking out from below the thatch roof, a sunken pizza oven deep in the Cotswold stone wall and the earthy smells of the outdoor wood burner.

The Tythe barn is one of the most established barn venues in the country, with its small but perfectly formed team having a wealth of knowledge and an unwavering passion to ensure your wedding day is pure magic. There is a wonderfully honest and down to earth vibe that oozes from this venue; they say as soon as you set foot in this rural location that you enter Tythe time and the world stops spinning. This is your time to relax, enjoy and soak up the enchanting setting of this divine wedding venue.

History

Built over 600 years ago, Tythe has always been the property of Manor Farm, which remains a working farm to this day.

Likely originally used to store produce provided by the local community, there are rumours that the barn was also used as a hiding place for priests during the English Civil War, and that a Bishop Skinner secretly ordained over 500 priests during this time in the nearby Norman church of St. Mary's. There's even believed to be a secret tunnel that runs from the farmhouse to the church!

Lovingly renovated in recent years by William and Emma Deeley, whose family runs Manor Farm, Tythe is now the perfect venue for a stand-out wedding, sure to be enjoyed and remembered by all.

Facilities

The Tythe Barn

With its mostly original 22-foot long oak beams, high ceilings, and full-length windows, the Tythe Barn is as versatile as it is unique, and can be decorated and laid out however you like.

If you wish to hold your ceremony and reception in the Tythe Barn, the space can be easily converted whilst you and your guests enjoy drinks in the gardens.

Civil ceremony capacity - 160 guests
Seated banqueting capacity - 160 guests
Evening reception capacity - 220 guests

The Cowshed

This smaller, yet equally charming space adjoins the Tythe Barn and is ideal for smaller celebrations.

Civil ceremony capacity - 40 guests
Seated banqueting capacity - 40 guests

Marquees and the Gardens

For larger weddings, marquees can be set up in the gardens of the Tythe Barn, allowing the barn itself to sit as the perfect backdrop to your big day. You can also choose to hold your ceremony outdoors in the gardens. (Weather permitting, of course!)

Catering

Your wedding food can be tailored to suit you, whether you're looking for gourmet fine dining, hearty homecooked food or something totally different, the team are passionate about delivering the goods. The team believe that good food is at the forefront of every celebration and your wedding breakfast should be a fun-filled feast.

Accommodation

The impressive 15th century farmhouse is available for a one or two night stay, sleeping up to 16 guests. This well-loved manor house has been within the Deeley family for over 500 years and sits at the heart of the Tythe estate.

  • Ellie and Josh – September 2023

    The most perfect venue and the most incredible day. As soon as we arrived at Tythe we knew it was the venue we wanted for our wedding - and it was well worth the 18 month wait!! The Farmhouse is simply exquisite and the grounds are stunning. Tori was a pleasure to work with and she ensured our day went without a hitch. She made everything so easy and was so kind. The whole team was so welcoming and made our lives very simple.

  • Matthew and Sarah – August 2023

    We had a wonderful day at the Tythe on our wedding day, staff were professional and friendly and dealt with all my random requests with ease. The venue was perfect and looked even more stunning on the day. The day went smoothly with many people commenting it was “prefect”. The food was amazing, generous and delicious. It’s the kind of venue you felt comfortable in straight away and never wanted to leave. I would recommend it 100 % as a wedding venue.

  • Lauren and Josh - August 2023

    We married here 24.08.23. We could not have chosen a more amazing wedding venue. I saw Tythe online when looking for venues, it was a little further away from our local area however nowhere else compared to the pictures online so we still decided to take a look. Within seconds we both knew it was the one!! The grounds were stunning, the barn was just gorgeous and exactly what we were looking for and the added Farmhouse & The Nook sealed the deal. Tori was our wedding coordinator she was so lovely! She took care of everything on the day and made it so easy. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We got the outside ceremony we were hoping for and walking down the aisle of wisteria was my favourite, our photos looked fab. We cannot thank Tythe enough for making our day so special. Our friends and family have not stopped complimenting us on such a fab venue choice and especially loved the surprise dancing from the carvers during our wedding breakfast!! We would recommend Tythe to anyone, it was just PERFECT!! We miss it already.

  • Amy, Bride – July 2023

    I don't have enough words to say how amazing Tythe was, from start to finish the whole experience was just perfection.

    We visited on an open day which is when we first met Tori, who ended up being our wedding coordinator. She is wonderful.

    Tythe was the first and only venue we visited. As soon as we walked in we knew it was the venue for us. The barn is beautiful with the fairy lights and exposed brick. The farmhouse accommodation is UNREAL. Everyone who works at Tythe is so welcoming and friendly.
    Tori was perfect and I couldn't have wished for a better wedding day coordinator. She went above and beyond to make our day perfect for us it felt like we had a friend with us, helping us on our day.

    The grounds of the Tythe are stunning and perfect for pictures. The options to have your ceremony inside and outside are both as beautiful as each other and difficult to decide between.

    Every single one of our friends have commented on how amazing the venue is, and 2 couples have even asked if we would mind if they got married there!
    Food with absolute taste is PERFECTION. Many comments on the food being the best food they've had at a wedding!

    If I could do it all again I'd go back to Tythe in a heartbeat, no question.
    Thank you Tythe, especially Tori, for giving us the wedding far beyond our wildest dreams.




  • Anne, Mother of The Bride – March 2023

  • Hannah and Tom – April 2022

    Our day was absolutely magical. Tythe is such a special venue and all of our guests loved it and couldn't believe how beautiful it was.
    A special thank you to Tina and Joe who were unbelievable all day and night and made our day so special. Your team are so wonderful and we loved working with them.

  • Hannah and Ryan – April 2022

    The whole team at Tythe are amazing. They are kind, accommodating and are experts in Weddings. The whole process from start to finish was amazing.

  • Jo and Jonathan – September 2021

    Our wedding day was the best day of our whole lives and so much of that was down to all the staff. The Tythe Barn is such a special, special venue and everyone was blown away by it. The grounds are stunning, it makes for such a beautiful, romantic ceremony and turns into an incredible nightclub in the evening! You get the best of everything at Tythe. The staff are all so kind, helpful and passionate about what they do- they make you feel so special and take all the stress away. I can't thank you all enough, our wedding day is everything we dreamed of and more. I would recommend getting married here to anyone, I wish I could rewind and do it all again! Thank you for everything, you're all so amazing.

  • Fiona and John - August 2021

    We had the best day at The Tythe Barn and are so glad we picked it for a venue. As well as it being a beautiful space, on the day Tina made sure it all ran totally seamlessly and we didn't have to do anything or worry about a thing. Having a space and such an experienced team who could guide us and let the day run, meant we felt totally relaxed and it just made the day and evening so much more enjoyable - it really was just the perfect day.

  • Beckie and Tom - August 2021

    From start to finish we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The comments from our guests regarding the venue, the food and the service have been nothing short of amazing. Thank you so much for hosting our perfect day.

  • Emma and Mike - December 2020

    From the minute we walked into The Tythe Barn, we knew it was the venue for us. The aesthetics are stunning and we were made to feel so welcome from day one. Having postponed our wedding of 100+ in May to a wedding of 15 in December due to Covid-19, we were unsure of how this small wedding would feel. The Tythe Barn worked so hard to comply with government guidelines but also to ensure our wedding felt like a wedding! Their communication and positivity were faultless throughout such a stressful time. Our wedding of 15 was perfect! Laura guided us through each step of the day and, together with Joe, they gave us the best day ever! We can't recommend this venue enough!

  • Billie and Jonny - June 2019

    We couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else. From start to finish the service was unparalleled and no question was too big or small. There aren't enough words to thank the team for all the effort they put in to giving us the day of our dreams. It was everything and more than we could've imagined

  • Mother of the Bride - July 2019

    We had the most amazing day here for my daughters wedding . The Tythe Barn is such a beautiful venue. It is maintained to a really high standard, and you can tell that it is run with a lot of love. The staff are like a family and will do everything they can to make sure you have a perfect day. The day itself ran like clockwork, and the food was incredible. It's also a photographer's dream, as there are so many incredible photo opportunities here. If you want a barn wedding, look no further, this place is really quite magical.
