In 2012, Glenn and Donna Newman took over The Granary after falling in love with it’s secluded location and rustic charm. Immediately they could see that it would make a perfect barn wedding venue, with 10 ensuite bedrooms and a huge barn for holding receptions and parties. However, the barn had a leaky roof, concrete floor, was full of sheep feed, junk and a tractor...
Fast forward to 2015 and the barn was completely transformed into one of Northamptonshire's best barn wedding venues. The outside has retained it's rustic wood charm and the inside is just beautiful. Fully draped with a black and white dance floor, lots of lighting and a handmade bar it is simply stunning.
As a family-run business, our aim is to stand out from the corporate crowd by offering that extra little something special. We believe that when it comes to weddings, one size does not fit all. We love working closely with the bride and groom to help them realise their absolute dream day.
We strive to create a home-from-home atmosphere where the wedding party can relax and truly let their hair down, whilst safe in the knowledge that every little thing will be taken care of by our professional and dedicated team.
We are proud to operate on an exclusive-use only basis, When our venue is booked for a wedding, it is for your wedding party only. We do not hold weddings on consecutive days and allow access the day before so you can add your own personal touch.
As a small, independent business, it is very important to us to support other businesses that are independent and local. Where possible, we source all of our produce from local suppliers. Our free range eggs come from a local farm a few miles down the road, all our fresh produce from a family-run business in Northampton and our bread from a local bakery. We use a local wine merchant and many of the micro-breweries in the area to supply our beer and ale.
Where possible, we try to minimise our impact on the environment. We compost all our food scraps, recycle all our glass, cardboard and plastic and use a local company for our general waste collection. Our complimentary in-room toiletries are a British, vegan range. Our local laundry service uses low impact chemicals to clean our linen and towels and we use natural and eco friendly products when cleaning as this is both kinder to the environment and our on-site biological sewage treatment plant.
