Cardington Road, Bedford, MK44 3SA

Set on the outskirts of Bedford, just a short stroll from the town centre, The Barns Hotel is a charming venue for your wedding celebrations. The hotel enjoys a tranquil setting within three and a half acres of landscaped grounds with stunning views across the River Great Ouse.

We have an excellent reputation for holding grand occasions and is locally known as the best wedding venue in Bedford. With the beautiful surroundings, fantastic first-class service and a licence to hold civil ceremonies, the hotel offers all you could need for a wonderful wedding.

The Barns Hotel offers five well-appointed suites for your wedding. The stunning 13th-century Tithe Barn, with its timber frame and red brick, exudes charm and character. The Barn is both the oldest and largest venue on-site and can accommodate up to 90 seated guests for your celebrations. The light and spacious AA Rosette WineGlass Restaurant is another delightful option for your day. Both the Barn and restaurant have easy access to the wonderful outdoor areas which offer enchanting backdrops for your treasured photos. Alternatively, for a more intimate occasion, we have two smaller suites which boast views over the gardens.

We appreciate that your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and you want it to be perfect. You will benefit from the experience and knowledge of our wedding planner who will be on hand every step of the way to help you plan your dream wedding.
