It’s a real credit to both of you and your staff for the hard work you have put in to making the venue such a fantastic place for a wedding.”

Thanks to the immaculate professionalism of all at The Out Barn and all at Absolute Hog Roast, we enjoyed a seamlessly successful  event yesterday. 

Everyone involved performed outstandingly well. From the great organisation of Chris and her team at The Out Barn,  to the delicious food served by Absolute Hog Roast’s chefs and team. 

The location of the Out Barn is breathtakingly stunning and so very discrete, the perfect beautiful location for private functions.

Jayne and Ben Palmer – May 2014 – (Bride and Groom)

Ben and I had our wedding at The Out Barn at Clough bottom in May. We had been looking for months at various venues across the area but there were none that suited the ideas of our dream wedding. We wanted a beautiful venue that we could put our own stamp on and organise ourselves down to the last detail making it unique to us and as far away from a ‘package’ wedding as possible.

We heard from a friend about The Out Barn and as we don’t live locally my mum went to visit-Ben and I didn’t even see the venue but upon my mums reaction we booked right away! And we weren’t disappointed! The venue is stunning, it is modern, finished with the finest quality yet they have managed to keep all the country features and charm. Jane, Harry and the team were so helpful from the start and answered any and all of my many questions! Jane offered help and advice on local suppliers and ensured the smooth running of things throughout the run up to our day.

Although it rained through the afternoon of our day the venue looked incredible, and we didn’t even notice! We managed to get a few photos on the lawn with that amazing view in the background and the lighting of the main room during our evening reception really set the atmosphere. We had an amazing day and the guests haven’t stopped talking about it. Thanks again Jane, Harry and team we hope to be invited to another wedding or event at Clough Bottom soon!

Mrs Hartley – July 2014 – (Mother of the Bride)

“We were all staggered by The Out Barn, its design taking every advantage of what must be one of the most beautiful sites in the Ribble Valley through its glazed Southern aspect”

“Our requirements for the reception were admirably catered for. A magnificent room for the Wedding Breakfast and all the festivities that followed.”

Guests “mingled and chatted in the afternoon sun, some played croquet and lawn darts on the newly mown grass area. No-one had been to a venue like it!”

“After speeches and the Wedding Breakfast in The Out Barn dusk fell and the building took on a magical atmosphere with family and guests dancing on the dance floor or sitting and relaxing outside listening to the music.”

Shelley & Tyrone Matthews – September 2014 – (Bride and Groom)

Firstly, thank you for an amazing wedding. Everybody loved the venue and said how amazing it was. Thank you for all your help.

A special note to Chris, our dedicated Wedding Planner….

Tyrone and I were just talking and saying how wonderful you were yesterday. You had everything covered and made our day so so special. Every time I thought of something and turned around there you were sorting it out. From sewing my dress to the lovely hay bale sofa. You were honestly brilliant, we can’t thank you enough.
