We are located near to three outstanding wedding barns (Stone Barn, The Barn at Upcote, Cripps Barn) and the newly opened The Frogmill. We have hosted many wedding party groups for each of these venues. Let us know if you’re staying with us for your special day as we have lots of local knowledge with recommendations for taxis, flowers, makeup, hairdressers, cake makers, photographers and bands. We can arrange for pre-prepared food to be delivered to you so that you concentrate on the big day (see Dining In). For the location map of each wedding venue (see Location Map).
Wedding Party Review
Just wanted to let you all know about the wonderful time we had at Southwold Barn recently for my daughters wedding weekend. The barn was beautiful, quiet and private. The bedrooms nicely presented and the accommodation just what we wanted. We stayed for three nights. The Friday night and Saturday night we had food prepared by Bex Tarling, on the Friday we had a small family gathering and Bex provided a buffet of wonderful home cooked goodies, like Scotch Eggs and pork pies and also local cheeses. On the Saturday evening it was just the bridesmaids, Bride and me mum of the bride. The food tonight was Moroccan Lamb Tangine and Lasagne. One of the bridesmaid was a vegan and a special meal was prepared for her on both nights. Nothing was too much trouble and the food tasted delicious and was extremely reasonable.
We were woken each day by Richard the Cockerel, who entertained us as he wandered around the outside of the cottage and sat and looked in on us from the sitting room window. It was also lovely to be so close to Emma's friendly herd of sheep, who liked to come and say hello.
Emma was lovely and was available if we needed anything. The morning of the wedding, my daughter the bride and her bridesmaids 6 in all, had plenty of room to get ready and being there made everything very comfortable and no-one got stressed. The sun shone for the photos on the front patio and the setting was beautiful for the photos before the journey to the wedding venue at Upcote Barn just a few miles away.
Thank you Emma for letting us stay and your beautiful Barn/Cottage and thank you Bex for your wonderful food. I would definitely recommend both Southwold Barn and Bex Tarlings Food to anyone, it all made our life much easier on a weekend that could have been full of stress
