The Great Tythe Barn

Nestled on the outskirts of Tetbury, The Great Tythe Barn is tucked away down a tree-lined driveway amidst 200 acres of privately owned land, making it a romantic setting for your dream wedding. The stunning Grade II listed, C16th Cotswold stone barn is the focal point of the Estate . With five possible areas for your ceremony, including an outside lawn with gazebo, the Great Tythe Barn really is a venue for all seasons and large enough to accommodate up to 200 dining guests.

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.
