Wedding Information

Weddings Receptions at Blithfield Lakeside Barns

Thank you for enquiring about holding your Wedding Reception at Blithfield Lakeside Barns.  

What we offer is the opportunity to hold the reception in a Marquee or Party Tent in a beautiful tranquil location overlooking Blithfield Reservoir.  You have to reserve all our six cottages in order to arrange a reception here and we do charge for the use of the Grounds but apart from that, you are free to organise whatever firm you wish to erect the Marquee and also the Caterers along with the Bar and the Band/or Disco can be of your choice for you to make the arrangements directly with them.

We have made some suggestions on the following pages but if you wish to use other companies we would wish to know who they are first but that would be no problem.  

We can provide a party tent which fits onto the Patio of Heron Cottage, and this is an ideal alternative if you only want to cater for up to 40 guests

Do telephone Kristina Brown if you wish to make an appointment to view on
