This luxury self-catering barn - 'one of the top 20 barns in the UK', says The Times - is a hotspot for a weekend wedding.

The cathedral-like Banqueting Hall is ideal for a ceremony for up to 80 guests. A new woodland ceremony venue will open later this year.

After the service, head into the five acres of gardens for a barbecue or sit-down marquee wedding breakfast. The property is extensive, being part of an 80-acre farm that was bought in the 14th century by the poet Geoffrey Chaucer.

There's accommodation for up to 18 people, so that's the bridal party sorted!
