Wedding Guest Information

Helpful Information

We hope you’ll have a wonderful time here at The Manor Barn. Here are a few frequently asked questions but if there’s anything else you’d like to know please call Pippa on 07545988479 or send an email:

Finish time – Weddings at The Manor Barn finish at midnight. We highly recommend pre-booking a taxi for 11:45pm to end the night on the high. We have a list of local taxi numbers at the Barn.

Parking – There is plenty of parking on-site just outside The Manor Barn. Cars may be left overnight but must be collected by 11.00 am the following day. Sleeping in cars overnight is not allowed.

Getting here – The nearest train station is Salisbury, it is about 15 minutes away and has a taxi rank. There is a bus stop in the village (Winterbourne Stoke). We can also accommodate large coaches if you would prefer to arrive as a group.

Walking to the Church – If you are attending a wedding in the village church please park at The Manor Barn as there is no parking at the church. It is a 10min walk on gravel, grass and tarmac from The Manor Barn to the church.

Civil Ceremony – If you are attending a civil ceremony at The Manor Barn please arrive at least half an hour before the ceremony start time. Alcohol consumption is prohibited within the designated ceremony room. However, pre-ceremony drinks will be available to buy from our bar.

Confetti – If you plan to bring your own confetti please choose the biodegradable kind (natural petals) rather than paper or metal.

Smoking – There is a no smoking policy within The Manor Barn. Smoking is allowed outside and there is a designated smoking area.

Bar – Both our bars are cash bars so please make sure you bring enough with you – the closest cash machine is in Shrewton (2miles). We have an iZettle card payment machine but we would always encourage bringing cash as a back up if our rural wifi fails us!

Disabled Access – The car park is grass (with a clever plastic matting system that avoids cars getting stuck), please ask the car parking attendant if you would prefer to park closer to the Barn. In good weather the wedding reception drinks are located outside on the tarmac and gravel areas. We have disabled toilets and a downstairs bar.

Accommodation – There are plenty of B&Bs and hotels in the local area. Please click HERE for a comprehensive list.
