The Barns Hotel

The Barns Hotel, Cardington Road, Bedford, Bedfordshire, MK44 3SA

A historic countryside spot

Just over two miles outside of Bedford, but with access to a main road and train station, The Barns is an accessible spot full of rural countryside charm. I've shot many weddings at this gorgeous hotel, complete 3.5 acres of luxurious landscaped gardens, a rustic barn and Manor House with views of Ouse Valley and the River Great Ouse.

Barn interior

Beautiful barns, manor & river to explore

A wedding at The Barns in Bedford offers opportunities for so many special photographs. From the ceremony in the barn itself, complete with enchanting fairy lights and rustic timber beams, to a drinks reception on the Riverside Terrace watching the sunset over the water.

The venue even has its own self-sail riverboat available for hire so newlyweds can really take advantage of their waterside location. And, you might even spot some birds on the river too!

The hotel offers a range of wedding packages and a wedding planner on hand to help, plus your guests can be accommodated overnight in the 16th Century Manor House right by the barn.
