The Barns at Redcoats - New Hertfordshire wedding venue review

The Barns at Redcoats - New Hertfordshire wedding venue review

A warm May evening with a glass of prosecco, surrounded by beautiful countryside and great people - this is how I spent my Thursday evening.

I had been invited to the Barns at Redcoats, nr Hitchin as they opened the doors to their brand new barn wedding venue for their launch party.

The Farmhouse at Redcoats dates back to the 15th Century and is surrounded by beautiful views of the Hertfordshire countryside. I have visited the Farmhouse many times for afternoon tea, dinner and recently a fragrance making hen party.

Until recently I hadn't even noticed the barn on the site, which has always been there but had been left unused and was falling down. 37 weeks ago building work began on the site and WOW what a transformation. The barn has become a beautifully restored exclusive use barn wedding venue and it is truly stunning.

Chicheley Hall Review - A romantic night away

Chicheley Hall Review - A romantic night away

Last weekend I was invited to stay at Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire. Chicheley Hall is an 18th Century Grade 1 listed mansion set amongst 80 acres of beautiful grounds. Only a few miles from Milton Keynes and the M1 it's easy to get to, but once you arrive you feel that you are in the middle of nowhere.

As you enter the tree lined driveway you can see Chicheley Hall in front of you in all its splendour. The Hall itself is stunning to look at, so it's no wonder that it has been used as a location in many films.  The venue is split across two areas, the original hall and a modern event space, also within the grounds.
