We’re really proud to receive testimonials from happy couples and their families after a wedding. Here are just a few of the wonderful messages we’ve received since we opened in 2012.
We are still on such a high from the most incredible weekend and a really big part of it was due to how professional, supportive and helpful you were leading up to the day and all through the weekend. You have the most stunning venue and I don’t really think photos can do it justice! We wouldn’t have changed a thing.
The Linhay was the perfect place for our bridal party to prepare, for us to spend our first night as a married couple and to prepare a delicious post wedding breakfast. Many of our guests commented on how relaxed and enjoyable the day had been.
The rooms were cleaned immaculately with luxurious touches, Katherine made sure that everything was kept clean and tidy throughout our stay and John was always on hand with a ladder! As if by magic, the outdoor games and seating were all set up for us during our ceremony, the transitions between daytime and evening were so smooth.
Our wedding day was just perfect, everything we had dreamed it would be. The Oak Barn is a stunning venue for a celebration, the breathtaking gardens with beautiful flowers and wildflower meadows were a joy to explore. Waking up to the gentle sound of rain and the glimpse of a wild rabbit hopping across the garden path made for a delightfully tranquil start to the day.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to have such a magical wedding day. You have been absolutely amazing every step of the way through these difficult months. We couldn't have got here without all your support, flexibility and patience with our ever changing plans!
The facilities at The Oak Barn are second to none, and it was lovely to be able to make the place our own for the weekend in order for Faye and Ben to have the relaxed, informal and fun wedding they wanted. Huge thank you for helping make the event so memorable.
Thank you both so much for everything last weekend. Your venue was truly perfect for our wedding (and the grandparents can’t stop raving about how lovely the accommodation was!). It was magical and I think Storm Dennis made it more exciting!
Thank you both so much for having us at your beautiful venue. It was perfect for our special day and we cannot thank you both enough for all your help and support in the run up and on the day also. It was truly magnificent - everyone is still talking about it!
We couldn't have found a more perfect venue for our day. The moment we saw The Oak Barn we fell in love with it and its surroundings. We wanted a fun, yet relaxed atmosphere and that's what we had.
Thank you so much for being part of the best day of our life and helping with the whole weekend!
Thank you SO much for everything. We are so pleased we chose The Oak Barn, it was everything we wanted and much more. We don't believe there is a better venue in Devon to celebrate a wedding!
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your support and help on our wedding day and over the days surrounding our wedding. We genuinely couldn’t have done it without you. The rooms were all absolutely incredible and our guests have commented on the cleanliness and just how beautiful they were. The Oak barn truly was a dream venue for us; thank you so much for having us!
Our wedding day was a complete dream & we want to thank you Katherine & John for everything you did to help us have the most perfect day! Also thank you for letting us visit quite a few times before our wedding day! :) haha!
We knew the first time that we visited The Oak Barn that it was the perfect wedding venue for us! We loved the rustic style & that it was a completely DIY venue. Everyone has said how gorgeous the venue & accommodation was & I truly wouldn’t have changed a single thing!
We had the best day at The Oak Barn, and couldn’t have found a better venue if we tried. Everybody commented on just how beautiful and unique a venue it was, and the barn itself makes for such an amazing atmosphere both for the wedding breakfast, but also the evening party.
We can honestly say this was our dream wedding venue! We both knew as soon as we saw the Oak Barn that it was where we would get married, it was so perfect for us.
A massive thank-you to Katherine and John for everything you did to make our wedding planning and our special day as stress free and utterly incredible as it was.
Your accommodation is of such a high standard – beautiful. Your gardens are stunning with lots of little nooks to take a breather and have a quiet (happy) cry!
A huge thank you for making our day so special. You were so helpful and kind - thinking of her nan's comfort, making up an extra bed, getting ice for the gin and tonic etc. John was patience personified when hanging a ridiculous number of lanterns at very specific heights from very high beams. Maddie described her day as "just the way she imagined, perfect".
Chris and Rachael’s wedding was such a lovely occasion in the beautiful setting of The Oak Barn. Everyone we’ve spoken to says it’s the best wedding they’ve been to. Thank you for helping them to make it so special.
A huge thank you to you both for making our day so special! You have the most beautiful venue and are the friendliest host ever! You made us all feel so welcome and like nothing was ever too much trouble.
