The Great Tythe Barn - Stunning Cotswold Wedding Venue

by Katie 12. May 2016 10:20

In the heart of rural Gloucestershire lies the Great Tythe Barn. A truly quintessential English gem tucked away down a tree-lined driveway amidst 200 acres of privately owned land, making it a secluded and picturesque venue for all occasions.

The stunning Grade II listed, C16th Cotswold stone barn is the focal point of the Estate which is surrounded by former farm buildings, now transformed into 10 self-catering cottages as well as Bed & Breakfast accommodation.

Sympathetically restored, this historic Tythe barn retains many of its original features such as exposed stone walls and wooden oak beams whilst incorporating 21st Century comforts such as under floor heating, tastefully decorated washrooms, wooden flooring, atmospheric lighting and tall glass entrance doors to allow plenty of natural light and views of the courtyard.

The walled garden and courtyard provides an outside drinks reception in the summer months as well as a beautiful place for photo opportunities.

There is a large, private car park for up to 100 cars providing easy access for all vehicles including coaches.

The Great Tythe Barn pride itself in taking a flexible approach to your wedding plans and catering ideas. Please contact a Wedding Co-ordinator on events@gtb.co.uk if there are any ideas you would like to discuss.

Best Western Hallmark Hotel Chester Llyndir Hall Wedding Venue

by Katie 3. May 2016 12:08

We wouldn’t wish to boast – after all, our gorgeous manor and grounds speak for themselves – but we freely admit the Best Western Hallmark Hotel Chester Llyndir Hall is one of North Wales’ most beautiful wedding venues. The Grade 11 listed villa surrounded by immaculate lawns dotted with grazing sheep, guarantees memorable photographs of your big day. Add in our al fresco sculptures and pergola with classical figures – perhaps even more beautiful when illuminated at night – and it’s a photographer’s dream.

It’s rather special inside as well. Our stunning new Llyndir Suite and conservatory, with its elegant interiors, chandeliers and state-of-the-art lighting and audio, spilling out onto an Italianate garden, can seat up to 150 for a magnificent wedding breakfast (120 for a dinner and dance). Of course we can also host smaller celebrations from a banquet for 80 in our restaurant to an intimate gathering in one of our lounges (even if it’s just the two of you, it’s not a problem). And if the weather plays ball – you’ll appreciate North Wales doesn’t offer a sunshine guarantee! – you could even have a BBQ reception, or ceremony in our Italianate terrace and garden.

We also have the suites to go with the teams. Our experienced and passionate wedding coordinator can lead you through the whole process from planning to recommending trusted local suppliers for everything from limos to flowers to photographs, while ensuring the tiniest personal details are taken care of. There’s also our award-winning kitchen that transfer their magic from the Garden Restaurant to your reception, and serving a dazzling range of banquets, buffets and brilliant canapés.

Naturally the Best Western Hallmark Hotel Chester Llyndir Hall, which is licensed for civil ceremonies, goes the extra mile to make it the perfect big day. We can provide bagpipes and a piper – a good double act with those wedding kilts – and a medieval sword for cake cutting, and thrones for the bride and groom as modeled by Posh ‘n Becs.

We understand no wedding is the same. We really do. It will always be a uniquely personal experience. But to take the hassle and intimidating workload out of your celebration we offer a range of great value flexible packages from spring, summer, sunset and winter  – Llyndir Hall is simply dazzling under a quilt of snow. If you know almost exactly what you want and are happy with a lead time of just a few months you can take advantage of superb Whirlwind Deal.

Whatever your choice, your big day always benefits from our 48 stylish rooms if guests wish to stay and drain every last drop of enjoyment from the party. They include our bridal suite with period four poster and double Jacuzzi bath. Go one, you deserve it. And don’t forget, our Secret Sanctuary Spa offers professional make up and hair for the bride and her party, along with, if required, recovery on the morning after!

To help your planning and start you on the path towards a dream wedding, the Best Western Hallmark Hotel Chester Llyndir Hall holds regular open evenings. Come and taste the canapés, sip some sparkling wine and meet a few of our most trusted local suppliers. You’ll also see the Llyndir Suite set up – a glimpse of just how lovely your day could be. Contact us to check the date of the next function.
