About Us

Monkton Barn: a proud Family Business founded in 2010

We, Peter & Wendy Aldiss are a multigenerational Marlow family, having first settled in Marlow over thirty years ago.  After various local moves and businesses, we finally settled at Monkton Barn in 2003.

How It All Started

When we found Monkton Barn in November 2003, we were immediately captivated and excited by the approach. Turning off onto the beaten track of Monkton Lane, with its tunnel of overhanging trees, we wondered what we would find – and we hope potential clients visiting for the first time, have the same feeling of adventure!

We are big foodies here at Monkton Barn, and one of our most memorable culinary adventures was a standout private dinner party held in 2010 at the Bull & Butcher Pub in Turville where, by coincidence, James Knight – now our Executive Chef – was busy earning Michelin awards. 

Little did we know in 2007 when we volunteered to host the parents’ summer fundraiser ball for our children’s primary school, that we would find ourselves in the hospitality business!
