There are three main structures at Gildings; the main Gildings Barn, the Threshing Barn and the Side Barn.

These beautiful oak-framed structures reveal themselves in intriguing stages, eventually leading out to the expansive lawn, The Granary and adjoining open farmland.

For your ceremony and wedding breakfast, the maximum number of people that can be seated in the main Gildings Barn is 110.

In the evening feel free to invite up to an additional 20; the maximum capacity being 130.

Please see our Venue Layout, Furniture & Décor page for more details.


Guests are counted from 3 years upwards.

Venue Hire & Setting Up 

Venue Hire includes exclusive use of the whole venue, including several interconnecting barns, chairs, tables, permanent fairy lights throughout, our in-house PA system, large garden adjoining open farmland and parking.  It also usually includes the whole of the day prior to your wedding for setting up (the only exception being Bank Holiday Sundays when you will have from 12pm set up) and planning visits by appointment leading up to your day. You can decorate Gildings Barns entirely to suit your taste and organise your event as you wish. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space, providing lots of scope for fun and creativity. There are no restrictions other than those to protect guests and the property. 


We work with very carefully selected local catering partners. Between them they provide a wide range of excellent cuisine to suit a wide range of budgets. As well as delivering fabulous catering, they will work closely with you to understand how you want to organise your day. We expect them to be highly attentive to your needs, both on the day and in the lead up to your event. We regularly check client feedback and pride ourselves on only working with those where this is absolutely and consistently high.

You may either buy your own alcohol for your special day or use The Drinkery run by Brown Kitchens or a combination of both.

We do not charge corkage if you choose to bring in your own alcohol.
