Wall of Fame

"We cannot recommend Doxford Barns enough, our wedding was absolutely perfect and it was down to all the efforts of the staff, from the moment of booking to leaving on the Sunday they ensured myself and my husband and all of our guests were looked after. The venue itself is stunning, our ceremony in the Threshing Hall was beautiful and the food and service throughout the rest of the weekend was lovely."
