The Barn at Avington is the perfect venue for your wedding weekend. Days of fun, a relaxed setup and a knowledgeable team to support you. Situated on a working farm near Winchester, Hampshire, it is easily accessible by road and 10 minutes from the M3 Winchester train station, just 15 minutes away, with regular trains to London.
Set in a wonderfully peaceful location adjacent to the River Itchen, you are surrounded by the 500-acre farm. Swans fly overhead, and deer stroll peacefully through ‘The Quarry, ’ the secret hideaway for glamping or partying.
The Barn at Avington is a relaxed and friendly venue, offering a 5* luxury service. Professional staff ensure everything is thought of. The team work alongside your chosen caterers and suppliers. You can choose whether you want a traditional meal or food trucks appealing to all celebration styles.
The industrial barn has been transformed into an excellent, light space, your blank canvas to style. Designed for couples, The Barn offers something unique – time. They believe a wedding ‘day’ is never enough, and each couple should feel special. They have a limited number of dates each year, so that you can spend a week at The Barn. Getting ready should be part of the fun. The celebration should go on for days, and there must always be time for reflection (and sharing those stories about who made the most embarrassing dance moves!)
The ceremony space is next to the river – a magical backdrop for your ‘I do’s. Surrounded by trees, this shaded oasis is peaceful and unique. Licenced for ceremonies both in and outside – prepared for all weather eventualities.
Friends and family are invited to stay in the cottages and glamping site, suiting those wanting a festival-style wedding or a long wedding weekend.
Look no further if you are looking for a venue with relaxed vibes but professional staff. The beautiful countryside, contrasting with the modern barn, provides the perfect backdrop to a fantastic celebration of love.
