Kind Words

I covered a fantastic wedding at Monkton Barn in Spring 2017. The grounds and building itself are stunning. Lot's of character and plenty of space. Additionally the field attached is a fantastic location for photo's and has fabulous views. The staff are very professional and ensure the wedding day run's as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend this venue.

Delicious, freshly cooked Italian food. An inspired menu with something for everyone. The lamb was outstanding and my watermelon granita pudding was up there with the best. Charming service - truly a laid back Sunday treat.

Hi lovely Monkton team,
I'll send a proper 'thank you' soon but I just wanted to say that we had such a wonderful time and your staff were absolutely exceptional. Everyone commented on how lovely the bar staff were in particular, and thank you to the lovely bartender who kept providing me with alcohol free G+Ts the whole evening, before I'd even asked! Made me feel very special! 🙂
Every element was dealt with so well, the food was amazing and everyone was so impressed with the venue. So a big thank you from us! It was exactly what we wanted.

To Peter and the team, thank you so much for your hospitality. We had such fun planing our day and felt quite at home here by time the wedding rolled around. James supplied us with some fabulous food and we will always remember our tasting session, as it was our first 'night out' away from our newborn baby. Gabriela was so relaxed and efficient and made us feel confident that she had everything under control. Peter was so friendly and really sold the excitement of the day!

Our guests loved the beautiful meadow and the impressive olive tree in the courtyard! The day turned out better than we could have imagined. Thank you again - and we hope to see you again soon for a lazy Sunday lunch!

Eloise, thank you for being so positive, smiley and helpful – even at 2am when I am sure you would rather have been tucked up in bed!
Thank you so much.

Eloise – you are a saint! Thank you so much. Wendy – you made it run like clockwork. I can’t wait to see the photos. We are so happy we chose Monkton Barn. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Thank you so much for all your help and support in making Helen and Rich’s wedding celebration such a prefect day.
The location is obviously spectacular but it was the ease of setting up the day before, lack of rush combined with your availability and support that made it all such a pleasure. The guests had a great time too! Thanks again.

A massive thank you for hosting our wedding. We were able to realise our vision of a relaxed, laid-back, crazy day with all of our loved ones. To sum up how we feel; we felt like Monkton was our home and we’d invited all our friends and family for an impromptu house party.
Eloise in particular, was exceptional on the day and no task was too much trouble. She even managed to make a highly strung bride feel calm. Amazing food from Mel and OF COURSE, the irreplaceable Peter. Thank you all.

Peter, where do we even begin! Charlie and I loved your endless enthusiasm, brilliant ideas and all your help from the very get go. Monkton is the most beautiful venue and you make an exceptional host. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect wedding day. We will forever cherish our memories made here.

Wendy went above and beyond taking the most amazing photos that really did capture the spirit of our wedding. Wendy was friendly and professional and great at gathering and instructing our guests to photos whilst seamlessly blending in. We love all the photos and it was almost an impossible task whittling down the photos for the album. Would definitely recommend Wendy!

My daughter and her husband have had the best day of their lives at Monkton Barn. Peter and his team have looked after us to perfection and his wife Wendy, is an amazing photographer and a nice lady with a wonderful manner with everyone. As the father of the bride, I cannot recommend this fantastic venue highly enough.
I would have to single-out the maÎtre d’ as being special of Peter’s staff. Eloise went beyond what we would call normal working hours. Still there at 2 in the morning sorting out the smallest of problems i.e. bringing a large container of logs to the bonfire, and doing this with a big smile on her face – a very special lady.
If I had to mark Monkton Barn from 1 to 5 stars, I’d give it TEN! We fell in love with the friendliness and warmth of everyone that looked after us. Thank you Peter and Wendy and all your team.
