Yarlington Barn Testimonials

Yarlington Barn is a small family business and we put our heart and soul into every wedding we do – much of the work goes on behind the scenes, which many of our guests never see, but is all part of what makes the barn such a wonderful place, a place that we are very proud of. Here are just some of the kind words that makes it all worthwhile and we are very grateful that you all chose to share your day with us.

Lovely venue, great hosts, good food. We had a perfect day.


I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you both for a seamless wedding carried out at Yarlington Barn. The whole day was perfect in every respect with the majority of our guests taking the time to comment not only on your fabulous venue but also the organisation and service. You made the day exceptionally special.


Thank you so much Mark and Kate for making the day go so well. We understand now why the planning is so meticulous, because it certainly pays off on the day! Lovely venue, we keep wishing we could do it again – best day of our lives! Thanks very much with lots of love.


Absolutely stunning venue with fabulous hosts! Mark and Kate you made our day go perfectly my husband and I cannot thank you enough.

JILL, Mother of the groom

Thank you for making our day so magical and perfect! We really appreciate everything you did.

From start to finish Mark and Kate were absolutely brilliant. They made our wedding day even better than we thought it could be. They made mine and Clare’s life a lot less stressful by taking on a lot of the work and making it clear to us what we would have to do. The venue itself is gorgeous inside and outside. The food was delicious, staff were helpful and kind. I would recommend to anyone who is getting married to do it at Yarlington Barn because they know what they are doing and run the whole event superbly. And most importantly Mark and Kate are two lovely caring people who will do all they can to make your day as brilliant as ours. Me and Clare cannot thank you enough!
Patrick & Clare

WOW, what can I say about this amazing venue! Myself and my beautiful wife got married here and Mark and Kate were amazing throughout. The detail that these amazing hosts cover is simply astonishing. The venue was breath taking with all the guests commenting on how beautiful the setting was. The food was to die for and plenty of it. (We had afternoon tea). We really were lost for words on the most emotional day of our lives. To all future grooms and brides. I would not go ahead with any wedding unless you take a look at this place. We can’t thank Mark and Kate enough for everything. !!!!!!!!

Thank you both so much for a wonderful day on Saturday – you gave our daughter Jen and her new husband Dan an absolutely perfect day, which was more than we could ever have hoped for. Yarlington Barn is a beautiful venue and I’m so glad we came across your website when we first started planning the wedding and it has been a total pleasure to plan it with you. Thank you so much for your professionalism and personal approach – as parents of the bride we are beyond grateful. We wish you luck and success as you take your business forward – not that you need it, it is already a real credit to you.

Everyone of our friends thought the venue was stunning and that you were both Amazing hosts… One friend in particular commented on how efficient the bar was run, he was very impressed that Kate had his drink order almost ready before he’d ordered!! (He must have ordered several times!!) Take care and many thanks again xx
Sue & Andy Bartlett

We had the most magical wedding here on Saturday. The venue is the most beautiful location you could ever wish for and helps to create the most relaxing atmosphere for the day. So many people commented how beautiful the place was and some were even jealous they didn’t know about the place when they got married!! Everything was absolutely perfect from the staff, to the food and even the weather (we were so lucky!). I can’t thank Mark and Kate enough for their help both during the planning stages and on the day itself, they both worked so hard all day to make everything so perfect for us. They also allowed us to bring all our ideas to life and to make the day more than we could have ever imagined. I think anyone would be hard pushed to find anywhere better than Yarlington Barn, could not recommended the venue, and Mark & Kate enough. If you want a beautiful Somerset wedding this really is the place for you. Thank you again for everything! X

Emily D'ChaundyEmily D'Chaundy

Daniel & CharlotteDaniel & Charlotte

What a beautiful venue and how superbly it is run. Went to a wedding which was magnificent. Everything was perfect and the staff were excellent. The manger is a perfectionist which is just what you want and he is kind with it too. Thank you Yarlington for helping to make a wonderful day. X

Jane MarshallJane Marshall

We had a lovely wedding here, the weather was brilliant and the location is stunning. I can’t thank Mark and his team enough for all that they have done. From start to finish Mark was calm, understanding and organised and everything ran perfectly. I was lucky enough to stumble accross this place fairly last minute (6 months to go!!) whilst in a panic as my initial reception venue choice had fallen through. We never looked back. Yarlington Barn provides the perfect combination of a stunning location that allows enough flexibility for you to put your own stamp on the day if you wish, but has an amazing venue manager (Mark) to keep everything running smoothly on the day. Thank you again and we wish you all the best with the Barn and your own forthcoming wedding! Mr & Mrs Hockey x

Heather HockeyHeather Hockey
Thank you for all your help on our wedding day, we had an amazing day, everything was perfect. Everyone said what a fantastic wedding it was and the most beautiful venue it was! Yarlington is a treasured gem, with lovely hosts. Thank you for our perfect start to the rest of our married life together.
Tracey and Paul
Absolutely amazing. As an ex Events Manager who has overseen hundreds of weddings and has become a total perfectionist, I was obviously nervous at someone else looking after my daughters’ wedding. However, from the very first time I met Mark I totally relaxed. He and Kate are incredible, every detail is managed to perfection and their presence ensures that the whole day runs smoothly from start to finish. Could not recommend this venue highly enough.
Karen Sutton
We had such an amazing day! Yarlington Barn is truly gorgeous in any weather on such a rainy day we still had lots of options for great photos. Mark and Kate guided us through the day expertly and made our day entirely stress free. Can’t recommend this venue highly enough.

Quite honestly, this venue was AMAZING! I wish I could give it more stars, that’s how impressed I was!

Mark talked me through all the bits I had to do and was on hand when needed. The venue itself is simply stunning. The awe when you walk through the gate and see the grounds is breath taking. A truly magnificent day, made a thousand times better by Mark & Kate who worked so hard to make the day totally perfect, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you both for the magnificent facilities you placed at our disposal for Katrina & David’s wedding. We were blessed with lovely weather which showed off the beautiful grounds at their best. The lake with its fountain, is an especially delightful feature. I’ve heard of fairytale weddings, but never thought we would have the pleasure and privilege of having one in the family. It was the perfect day in every sense – a living dream!

Thank you so much to Mark and his wife Kate for hosting our wedding this weekend. From the first time we met at the venue, to waving us off last night they have been total professionals. They have provided expert advice, support and guidance and helped make our wedding stress free and I cannot compliment them enough.

Many of our guests complimented the venue saying how beautiful it was and that it outshone the venues they have previously attended. I can heartily recommend Yarlington Barn to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding.
