The Barns Hotel description

The Barns Hotel, Bedford, is situated in a beautiful riverside location, within three and a half acres of landscaped gardens, yet it is just 10 miles from the M1 and 8 miles from A1.

Weddings at the Barns Hotel

From the moment you arrive at the hotel, set in three and a half acres of landscaped gardens, you will appreciate how both the stunning riverside location and the hotel's characterful 13th century Tithe Barn are magical backdrops for those all-important photographs, capturing treasured memories for years to come.

We pride ourselves on our personal attention to detail and when it comes to choosing from our hotel's five wonderful suites, you can benefit from the experience and knowledge of our professional Wedding Planner who will help you every step of the way. Maybe you'll choose the stunning Tithe Barn or light and spacious WineGlass Restaurant, both with easy access to the outside for riverside photos, or perhaps you would prefer the Riverside Suite with its sweeping bay windows. If your wedding is a smaller, more intimate affair we have two smaller suites overlooking the gardens.

Naturally you want it to be a truly perfect day for you, your partner and your family and friends, so let us help you with the planning and preparation. We are here to assist you every step of the way and we will do our best to see that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

The Northill and Southill Suites both have a maximum capacity of 35 in theatre style and offer air conditioning and natural daylight. Both suites are accessible for disabled guests and offer a calm environment for any meeting.

The Tithe Barn, dating back to the 13th Century, has a traditional timber frame with red brick noggin and a red tiled roof. Its size of 20m x 6m, with maximum capacity of 120, makes it ideal for a range of meetings, events and celebrations.

We recognise that no two events are the same, but the dedication and commitment of our experienced staff will ensure you won't have to worry about a thing as we help you plan your event right down to the very last detail.

We even have our own preferred suppliers for all Audio Visual requirements, including set design and sound systems.

Before you arrive, all equipment in the room is checked with each room set up and available 30 minutes before your meeting or event. When you arrive at the hotel, your dedicated member of staff - available all day long - will meet you to run through all the details. They'll confirm what's been booked and organise any last minute changes or additional requirements. Then it's the simple things like agreeing the preferred method of communicating of any messages on the day.
