A day as unique as you are

Winterbourne Medieval Barn is a beautiful wedding venue bursting with rustic charm. Built all the way back in 1342, the barn is a truly historic experience for your big day. We’re located just a stone’s throw away from Bristol, giving you and your guests easy access to the city while maintaining a secluded, country feel.

The Barn is suitable for a variety of wedding receptions, with the flexibility to create the event you want. The historic interior makes the perfect backdrop for a handfasting, a sit down meal, or a barn dance. And there’s plenty of outdoor space for garden games, drinks receptions, or even a picnic!

Our capacity ranges from 30 to 200 depending on how you’d like to use the space. We do not currently have a ceremonies licence but you are welcome to have a personalised ceremony at the Barn, with the legal marriage taking place elsewhere.

Useful things to know

The Barn is a historic building so while we can be flexible with arrangements in many ways, there are some inevitable limitations. If you have an idea but aren’t sure if it will work, we’re very happy to discuss arrangements.

  • You are welcome to choose your own catering supplier, or provide food yourselves.
  • The main Barn is not fully heated. From mid-spring to mid autumn it is comfortable, and pleasantly cool in the height of summer.
  • As our building is not sound proofed, we are unable to accommodate a fully amplified band or DJ. Background music and amplification for speeches is permissible, as is some reinforcement for acoustic musicians.
  • We are able to run a bar for you, or you are welcome to bring your own drinks.
