Near Chipping Norton in the Cotswolds, this is a seriously chic country barn.

THE BEST RUSTIC WEDDING VENUES

Walls are lime-washed and ceilings lofty in the interconnecting Stone Barn and White Barn, making for a light and airy backdrop for both your ceremony and party. A courtyard with roses, lavender, jasmine and wisteria is ideal for drinks when the sun is out, and a cute cottage, The Pumphouse, is the top choice for your first night.

If you love the idea of a countryside barn wedding but are allergic to twee, Merriscourt, set in the rolling Cotswold hills, could be the one for you.

The two barns are airy and light, the ceilings are high and the walls are simple and neutral, so you can put your own stamp on the interior.

Both barns open out onto a flower-filled courtyard for drinks, before you sit down with your guests to a wedding breakfast prepared by the in-house chefs.

Ceremony capacity: 132; Packages per person: £63; Corkage: £8
