We were the photographers for Billy & Karen’s wedding yesterday and we’d like to say a HUGE thank you to Lisa and the whole team for looking after us so well. We were kept informed all thru the day... and the food was AMAZING. We both hope we get the opportunity to come back and work here again soon Julie and Andy xx https://www.facebook.com/AWPhotography111/ More...
Came here for a wedding in September, the venue is amazing, in an brilliant rural location with great views all round. The barns are all kitted out for everything you need and the people couldn't do enough for everyone. Food was fantastic, would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to get married More...
Amazing wedding venue
Lovely venue for a family wedding - great setting, super food and love the cows
The venue of fairytale weddings. We cannot thank everyone at the ashes enough for our dream wedding day. Special thanks go to the fabulous stef. She is an instant calmer, nothing is too much and just the nicest person. Everything went beyond our expectations and we loved every second of our day. From the service, the food, the atmosphere it was just incredible! More...
We got married at the Ashes yesterday and it was honestly the best day! Matt our wedding planner was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for him! Everything was perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you for a great day! More...
Had the most amazing day. Perfect venue and Matt the wedding planner was fabulous. Could not recommend anywhere better. We will always be grateful for making my daughter and son in laws day so special ❤
The most perfect venue for our wedding! Absolutely stunning! The staff are amazing, always on the end of the phone/email to answer even the smallest queries! Nothing was too much trouble on the day and everything just ran so smoothly! Special mention to our amazing wedding planner Jayne who was just brilliant!! Couldn’t think of a better place that we could have got married! Thank you all so much - love from Mr and Mrs Taylor ❤️ More...
Beautiful place stunning views
Fantastic venue and what great staff
Since our first visit to the Ashes we were really impressed by the attention to detail and all of the interactions that we had with the events team. On the day - all of the staff were absolutely superb. The housekeeping team are absolutely phenomenal at keeping the venue looking spectacular. We had Lisa as our Event Manager and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. As someone who is very detailed I felt reassured that Lisa was on top of everything - she went above and beyond. We’ve had so many comments about how amazing the venue was and all of the details that went into it. I would definitely recommend getting married at the Ashes and am slightly jealous as I would love to do our day all over again! More...
I went to my friend's wedding here and it is a beautiful, secluded venue. Literally, it was in the middle of nowhere.
Posh Cow Ice Cream have just finished their service at this most beautiful venue.
What a venue. 5 star.....

Today’s wedding was lovely the staff were very helpful and there was great wheelchair access
Amazing venue wonderful staff especially Matthew our wedding planner
Fabulous venue for a wedding, lovely food & great staff!
Just like to thank the Ashes for making our day better than we ever imagined. The venue is amazing the staff are so on hand to help with anything from the day you book and our events Manager Mathew was awesome. It flowed so well and he guided us in how to do this. Everything was laid out beautifully. Everyone has commented saying they have never been to a wedding as beautiful so thank you all so so much. Mr & Mrs Alizadeh x More...
Fabulous place couldn't fault anything about it. The food was superb and the planner worked really well for the bride and groom. Amazing place and location to get married. More...
5* review from Mr and Mrs Jackson, we had our wedding at the Ashes which was Perfect . From first contact to setting up for the big day right through to the end it was perfect. Nothing was to much to ask for when liaising with our wedding coordinator Lisa, even when we forgot to email her with a plan of where we wanted all our decorations it still ended up better than we could have imagined. thank you so much! The venue itself was brilliant, the views are amazing with the crops, ponds and scenery, even the cows! A real rustic barn which was exactly what we wanted. The on-site accommodation was brilliant! A huge thank you to everyone at the Ashes for making our day better than we could have ever dreamed of. More...
Great venue, great staff, great views.
It's a fantastic place for a wedding
Beautiful setting for a wedding. Country style and relaxed
As a wedding venue it was ideal. The surrounding countryside and historical buildings were an ideal backdrop for photos. There was a relaxing atmosphere in both barns used and the whole day was a complete success. The meal and the staff's attentiveness to those there was exceptional. I can highly recommend it. More...
Setting beautiful with lovely outdoor space with tables, friendly welcoming staff
What an amazing place and just the most beautiful back drop for my daughter and her new husband's special day. Everything was just perfect, the stunning venue, fabulous food and an incredible team who work so hard to make it all happen. A special thanks to Lisa, you were fantastic. Just wish we could do it all over again! Wedding date 20.7.2019 More...

We shot a Wedding here last Summer. If you are planning a Wedding, do not think twice about booking here for your special day. The venue is absolutely stunning, with beautiful scenery. We captured some spectacular drone footage on the day. We cannot wait to return next year and film another Wedding! Please find a link below to view our highlights video https://vimeo.com/341184813 More...
We got married at the Ashes Barns the end of June 2019. The venue is absolutely beautiful we couldn’t ask for anything more - picture perfect! ! All staff we have met couldn’t do anything more to help during our planning process. Big shout out to Steph our events coordinator she was fantastic on the day, set up all our decorations beautifully, calmed my nerves before walking down the aisle and even helped bustle up my dress when my mum was panicked as she forgot how to do it! Our guests were so impressed with the whole experience, from the scenery to the delicious food. Our perfect day and lots of memories shared xx More...
Lovely location, food was good, set out very well for the wedding reception we attended
Amazing wedding venue! Hope we get to go again.
Fantastic best venue ever
Was my wedding on the 29th of may. What a fantastic day it was. The ashes is out of this world.
Cannot praise this venue enough. Stunning backdrop for my daughter ebonys big day. Staff were wonderful nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was second to none. Food was amazing particularly the toffee apple creme brulee. This is probably the one day when perfection is a must and that was certainly the case thankyou More...
Very Picturesque and we'll layed out
Went for my daughter's friend's wedding what can I say stunning beautiful venue lovely day had by all
fabulous well organised brill staff very attentive and good fun . great day
A lovely scenic wedding venue, I liked the authenticity of the buildings, nice old converted barns made of brick. Warm inside, good food, well staffed and catered for.
Absolutly stunning location, you need to go to appreciate the full beauty.
Absolutely beautiful venue, would definitely recommend. Attended as a wedding guest and it was fantastic. Staff were great, and everything else to go with.
Where do we even start! What a stunning venue!! From the moment we found the venue online through to the completion of our day at The Ashes, we couldn't have been happier that we were able to have our wedding there. It is an absolutely gorgeous venue and the team at The Ashes have done a brilliant job of making it the best place in the world to have a wedding - no joke, we travelled from Melbourne, Australia to have our wedding there!The communication was amazing and we never felt alone in our planning. Emails were always responded to promptly and no question was too silly or too much. Everyone was friendly and there is so much valuable information on our personal booking website already on hand that it is a great resource to anyone getting married here. We loved that it was a No Corkage venue but also that the drinks packages were super reasonably priced and we ended up using that instead of bringing our own drinks. Our Event Manager, Jayne, was lovely and we are so grateful she was able to do our Planning Meeting over the phone instead of in-person due to not being in the same country. I have no doubt that the day ran perfectly because of her attention to detail. She was on hand from before I arrived with my bridesmaids and hairdresser at 10.30am and was still there when our guests were leaving after midnight!The site is beautifully maintained and the grounds were perfect for photos in every direction. One particularly big draw for us to the venue is that the ceremony barn can be converted to an indoor area during cold/rainy weather for the drinks reception. The Wedding Night accommodation was lovely and the bed so cosy - what a lovely place to sleep after the best night of our lives. Breakfast in the morning was yummy!I feel like I could go on and on as it really was the best day of our lives and I truly believe it was perfect because we had it at The Ashes. Thank you so much to everyone in the team that contributed to our day :) More...
The most beautiful place for my granddaughters wedding ..words can't express ..so so lovely.a day to cherish ...thank you the Ashes ..amazing place x
Our future wedding venue. Absolutely stunning venue and the wedding team are extremely helpful. Cannot wait to get married here
Lovely venue with beautiful views and great accommodation. Wedding was really well catered- thoroughly recommend.
Magical fairy tale venue for a wedding.
Beautiful place for a wedding
Candy Floss Palace
What a wonderful place for a wedding! Barn & cottages are completed to a high standard with attention to detail. The staff were spot on and couldn't do enough, including Lisa. Highly recommended!
We got married here in July last year and it was just perfect ❤️ the venue is amazing and we and our guests loved having it to ourselves. The staff are exceptional, especially Lisa who was our event manager, she was always on hand to help and answer any questions we had when planning the day. On the day she really did go above and beyond to ensure we had the best day, which we did. The honeymoon suite was beautiful and so comfortable. Honestly it was perfect, the best day of our lives and by far the best wedding venue in Staffordshire! Thank you Lisa and all the staff at The Ashes ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...
It’s so stunning beautiful venue
We celebrated our wedding at The Ashes in October and we couldn't have wished for a better venue. We fell in love with it all straight away- not only is the site stunning and so well designed, but the staff absolutely won us over. You are all so friendly and passionate about your work, and we couldn't have felt more at ease and welcome. A massive thank you must go to our wedding planner Lisa, and the fantastic staff that helped to create our beautiful day- we cannot thank you all enough! Gemma and Stewart Fletcher xXx More...
We had a fabulous wedding on the 2nd of November. I would highly recommend the ashes as your wedding venue. The grounds are gorgeous the staff and amazing and everything was perfect for us!! Thank you ❤️❤️
We, as a family went to a meal tasting evening and it was superb, the delivery of the night we were there was great. The staff were great and host did a great job, thank you. My daughter and future son in law are there today to pick there menu for there big day. Once again we thank you. More...
An absolutely beautiful venue for a wedding or celebration. Charming and rustic stone barns with modern facilities in a beautiful location near the lovely town of Leek. The staff were helpful and friendly and the surroundings stunning. Highly recommended. More...
Fantastic venue, very friendly staff, food was excellent,
Really nice wedding venue in beautiful surroundings.
What an amazing day ! I can't thank Stephanie enough, she was our wedding planner and she was on the end of the phone for even the smallest of queries. On the morning of our wedding she took all of the little bits I accumulated over years of wedding planning, and turned them into my dream wedding venue. She was fabulous, and the little touches like champagne and cake in the old dairy wedding suite made our day even more special. Nothing was to much to ask and everything ran smoothly all day... Not many people get to say they had the perfect wedding day and nothing went wrong, but I do, and that's all because of the Ashes wedding venue and the hard word of their amazing staff. More...
Excellent venue! Not the cheapest but then the best isnt
Our daughter got married at the Ashes in May everything went perfect. we had the most amazing day and our daughter looked stunning. she is the one on the profile picture where they are standing by the lake . I fully recommend the Ashes for a wedding venue, The country house wasnt open at the time but i am sure it will be fine. More...
Brill wedding venue, friendly staff, the food was brilliant and the organisation was great. Having the dressing room available all day for bridesmaids touch ups etc was also a lovely touch.
Had the most wonderful day , beautiful venue, gorgeous setting and the staff are amazing, can't speak highly enough of our whole experience here, my daughter and her new husband certainly picked the best venue to celebrate their wedding.
Perfect spot for a country wedding!

Christine Janet Gould
Was a very friendly clean and picturesque place
As a wedding makeup artist I often work here getting bridal parties ready and it is always a fabulous experience!
My husband and I (LOVE saying that phrase!) got married last Sunday 12th August 2018. We just cannot thank the staff at the Ashes and also Jenkinsons enough, but particularly Lisa. Lisa was our wedding planner and also my sister and brother-in-law’s planner last year. She was just fabulous! Nothing was too much trouble and she ensured that the day was a great one. The location of the Ashes is simply perfect. I grew up not far from Endon and my grandparents live minutes away, therefore the area means such a lot. It was literally the BEST day of our lives and we have this amazing venue and the staff to thank. If there is anywhere better, we would like to see it! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Lots of love and best wishes, the Rowleys(!) xxxx More...
Lovely venue for weddings. Only downside is the bar being upstairs, not ideal with a bunch a drunks!
Wonderful place for a wedding. Very picturesque. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommended
Had an amazing day here to celebrate my daughters wedding. Couldnt have wished for a nicer place and people. Very professional and accomodating.
Wonderful wedding venue. The hospitality was fantastic, the food was of great quality, and staff very friendly and helpful. Only slight negative is the lack of accommodation, with only one cottage available, although I believe this will be increased in the near future More...
Stunning wedding venue. Great food and staff too
Wow.... What a place. Everything about this venue is top notch. The staff are polite, the food is scrumptious, the setting along with scenery is brilliant and the whole place is very well maintained.
Great place for a wedding. Beautiful setting. Good food.
Gorgeous venue and fantastic wedding! Staff were helpful and courteous too.
Beautiful venue and the food served was amazing. Bar prices wernt too bad. Staff were friendly. Venue was spotlessly clean.
Had our wedding there this weekend and we could not fault a single thing. Our event manager (Lisa) was the perfect host. .the restoration team did an amazing job of setting the venue up as we wanted..the food that was prepared by Jenkinsons was beautiful! Overall an incredible experience..thankyou Team Ashes! More...
Nice venue with multiple barns set up for services and receptions. Nicely finished if a little tight for space inside. Plenty of parking and ancillary buildings for brides to change or just chill out.
Great wedding venue. Staff very helpful. Beautiful location for wedding photographs.
Beautiful wedding venue, food was absolutely amazing, the best meal we have ever had at a wedding.
Amazing venue. Always love shooting weddings there. The staff are super friendly and helpful

So so happy with how it all came together and how smoothly the day went! I want to do it all again! We honestly cannot thank you all enough! All the staff were so lovely and warm. The best day we could have wished for!! More...
We had the most perfect wedding day thanks to the team, Jenkinsons caterers and in particular Sarah Bootherstone, our wedding planner. The team were so helpful and always available to answer questions in the 18 months before the wedding, they made it so easy! We are so grateful to Sarah for being so amazing on the day, really went above and beyond. I had guests telling me it was the best wedding they've ever been to and the best wedding food they have ever had. I'd also recommend Joe from one little daisy photography, such a nice guy. We also stayed at a beautiful cottage called Gorsthead Mill Farm that has 5 rooms, 15 mins away. One of my guests is looking to get married here, hope they do, i'd love to come back. Thanks again to Sarah, you beautiful person! Xxxxxx More...
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Ashes in particularly our wedding organiser Lisa not only was she so helpfully during our wedding plans she was there from morning to midnight to ensure thst everything went smoothly.
The venue is a stunning place to get married you could have whatever you wish for, they made our dreams come true.
We had Angel an owl that brought us our wedding rings which was amazing, we would like to thank Wendy from Flying the knot.
Also to Erika from tickity boo Cheddleton for making our cake just as we had designed it, all three layes were so beautifully tasty, my wife sue made the cake topper which we can keep for the rest of our lives.
The flowers from Sarah Plant from Haughton Stafford were beautiful not only our bouquets but also our table decorations too, she made some lovely finishing touches for free just because she cares so much.
Also Joe from One Little daisy for the fantastic photos we've received so far, we can't wait to see the rest.
And lastly to Andy "doodle" Baker who entertained everyone with incredible characatur that were a great keep sakes for our guests.
We had a perfect Wedding made possible by The Ashes, thank you for making it a once in a life time experience.

We were married on Saturday at The Ashes and the day was seamless from start to finish. Steph was a fantastic calming presence and we can’t thank her enough for the work she put in to making the day so beautiful.
All our guests commented on how stunning the venue was and how the staff were all total professionals who couldn’t do enough for you.
I am a bit of a perfectionist and the day exceeded even my best expectations, it was an absolute dream. Thank you to all at The Ashes. Hannah & Matt France x More...
To Steph & The Ashes Team,
Thank you so very much to everyone for making Our Wedding Day as magical as it was. We loved having you there making sure everything ran smoothly - even helping me to breath and get ready for the most important walk of my life. You were there from the moment I arrived to get ready to the moment we said goodnight to our guests.
We loved The Ashes the moment we saw it, we knew we wanted to get married there before we visited and we really enjoyed our taster evening before our wedding, it gave us so much to look forward to.
Thank you so much, you are amazing Steph, I loved having such a calming person there for me.
Lorraine & Chris xx xx More...
We got married on Sat 2 Dec exactly a year after we got engaged in New York, from the moment we drove up the Ashes Drive we knew that's where we wanted to get married, we were shown around and the date 2nd Dec was available, from day one everyone was so helpful and the online planner was great for tips, advice and keeping upto date with everything.
We attended our taster event night to see and taste the food and see the venue dressed it was an excellent night.
Every single detail of our day was perfect (apart from the drizzle) the staff and the food were absolutely amazing and everyone commented how fabulous it was, Stephanie was our event manager she was amazing and was always there to answer our questions on the lead up to the big day we can't thank her enough for everything she did, also the jenkinson staff were fantastic the service and the food were excellent, it was a day we shall never forget and it's so sad it's over but we will treasure the memories forever.
Thank you The Ashes for being our perfect venue.

We got married at The Ashes on 21/12/2017. It was the first and only wedding venue we viewed as we knew straight away it was perfect for us.
The setting is just beautiful, with the long drive and lake, and the barns were just what we were looking for - a smaller, more intimate Barn for the ceremony and then a larger barn for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations!
All the staff were so helpful and prompt to reply whenever we had a question during the 18 months of planning. They helped with all the details, and gave great ideas and advice, which was much needed and appreciated!
We loved the taster evening which we attended. It was the first time we saw the barns set our properly for an event and it helped us confirm our food choices - we even made a new choice based on that evening which we hadn't considered before (it was the Mango and Brie parcels for starter, they are delicious!). The food from Jenkinsons is incredible and we received so many positive comments about the standard of the food on the day.
Steph was our Event Manager and she was just brilliant! Steph was there from start to finish on the wedding day and it was so nice to have someone you could completely trust to help keep the day running smoothly.
We can't thank The Ashes enough for our perfect day and we can't recommend it highly enough.
Thank you - Matt & Emma xx More...
We had our wonderful day on 23rd March 2018 and it was perfect. Huge thank you to Lisa and the team who made our day as amazing as it was. We didn't need to think about anything thing at all as they made everything run so smoothly. Would do it all over again and wouldn't change a thing! Thank you � More...
We got married at The Ashes on Thursday 5th April and the day could not have been more perfect!! Jordan and I visited the barns over two years ago and instantly loved its rustic charm and stunning grounds! The Ashes team made the planning process so enjoyable and stress free and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Steph, our event manager on the day, was absolutely AMAZING! She made us feel so at ease and she is truly fantastic at her job!! Our guests were also blown away by the venue and spoke so highly of all the catering staff for providing such great service on the day. The Ashes will always have a very special place in our hearts and we would like to thank everyone involved in making our wedding day the best day of our lives! Natalie & Jordan xx More...
We got married at the Ashes on 28/03/18 and it was the most incredible day! We had so many comments from guests about how lovely, approachable and accommodating all of the staff were on the day and they are so well organised!
We were really impressed with how smoothly the drop off and collection of our decorations were and the thought and attention to detail that went into decorating the venue for us.
The taster evening was absolutely fantastic for us to get a picture of being a wedding guest there and talk to other couples planning their big day at the Ashes!
Our allocated wedding planner was incredible in promptly answering all our questions on the run up, and when she was poorly on the day, the other staff made sure that absolutely everything went to plan! Nothing was too much to ask and the communication was brilliant all day!
The Ashes is a beautiful venue and we are so so happy that we chose to get married here not just because it looked so lovely and felt so special but because of how stress free and beautiful the staff made our day! We couldn’t thank you or recommend you enough! More...
We got married at the ashes at the end of may 2018. I could not recommend them more. It's so well organised, we had quite a DIY wedding with few contractors so we could save money, having the venue think of everything and do all the setup made it really easy to do this (we were anticipating everything being so much more stressful than it was). The venue itself is beautiful and the grounds are also lovely. The thing that really made the ashes great was the staff, they made everything so easy all the way through the planning process and it was amazing to turn up on our wedding day and see the venue set up exactly like we had pictured it when we were planning the wedding. Our designated planner was Vikki and she was brilliant throughout, but all the planners I had dealings with were friendly and helpful. I hope someone I know gets married there so I am able to visit as a wedding guest sometime too. More...
My husband and I got married at the Ashes at the end of June - just wow! The venue is absolutely stunning, with beautiful countryside all around and the barns have been really well done up. So many of our guests have commented on the venue and how perfect it was! But it would have been nothing without our amazing wedding coordinator Lisa, who made the day run perfectly. From our first meeting to her bidding us goodnight at the end of the night, Lisa was incredibly helpful and friendly, from small touches (making sure my train on my wedding dress was properly laid out before I walked down the aisle!) to the bigger things (my idiotic husband brought the wedding cake to the venue on the day with no idea how to put the dowels on it � and she told him to leave it to her). Could not recommend The Ashes any more highly, they made the day absolutely perfect and a really unforgettable one. Will forever be recommending you wherever I go!! � More...

We got married at The Ashes on the 12th of November and it was fabulous. It absolutely poured down and still all of our guests commented on what a gorgeous venue it is, so no need to worry about the weather here!
Every member of the team is so friendly and happy to help, from making our booking, the wedding experience evening, our countless emails and visits leading up to the day, dropping off our decorations the day before and the day itself.
Our wedding planner was the wonderful Dawn who worked so hard for us to make sure everything was perfect, always with a smile on her face! So many of our guests complimented her on how hard she worked and how lovely she was.
The whole team did everything they could to make the day run smoothly - our cake topper had broken in transit and Dave from the restoration team fixed it for us without us even asking; we had an issue with the bulbs in our festoon lighting, and Sarah B helped to organise replacements with the supplier and the restoration team helped my Dad to change them all. Everyone at The Ashes is a complete pro and they know exactly what they're doing to make your wedding day run like clockwork.
We couldn't recommend this venue highly enough, and if you're thinking of getting married here, you won't regret it! Thank you to everyone involved in making our wedding day perfect! � More...
We would like to thank Dawn and the Ashes Team for making our day truly special and lovely.

The location was stunning, the food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and professional and the day ran like clockwork because of their dedication. We would also like to thank Wendy the Catering Manager for going above and beyond. This venue is a truly magical place to get married and would really recommend it to anyone. More...

We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Ashes for setting to the scene to our amazing wedding on Tuesday 25th July. It truly was an incredible venue to celebrate our marriage with beautiful scenery and lovely barns to hold the ceremony and wedding reception. We would like to thank our wedding coordinator Dawn in particular for all of her help and support during the planning and the big day; she worked tirelessly to take on all requests and preparations, and was present throughout the day to ensure that everything ran smoothly. Dawn is a real gem and we absolutely loved her friendliness and warmth; very professional and helpful too, thank you so much and we hope to keep in touch! Many many thanks on behalf of our families and friends, Emma and James Walker xxx More...
We fell in love with The Ashes the first time we viewed it and we were so happy we could book a date. The communication from the team the whole way through was great and the taster evening was a fab way to see the venue dressed.
The whole team are fantastic and made our wedding morning relaxed by setting everything up and making the rain not matter a single bit.
Stephanie was our wedding coordinator and I can not express how amazing she is. She had everything under control and made us feel relaxed and able to just enjoy the day. She even came to the rescue with contact lens fluid! Her enthusiasm and love for her job clearly shows and helps make your day extra special.
To quote my maid of honour when when I showed her round in the morning "why would you not want to get married here" More...
I would like to say a huge thank you to Katie and the Ashes Team!
We got married on 30/03/2018, from the second we first viewed the venue we fell in love! Throughout the planning all staff have been so helpful! On the day Katie made sure everything ran smoothly and we were left knowing we were in safe hands. I can’t thank Katie and the rest of the team enough! You ensured we had a perfect wedding day!

We got married here on 2/4/18 and it couldn’t have been more perfect. From start to finish all of the staff made sure that our day was special.
On the day itself Steph really looked after us and made sure the day flowed perfectly so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Although the British weather let us down the venue is so stunning it really didn’t matter. A huge thank you to everyone at The Ashes who helped to give us the perfect wedding.

Our events manager was an absolute dream (Steph xx) and all the team make everything so special and stress-free. Thank you so so much The Ashes, we cannot recommend this venue enough xxxxxxx More...
What a fantastic venue ! We got married on the 25th February and the whole day ran perfectly thanks to the lovely Jayne and all the Ashes team, not forgetting Jenkinsons with the fabulous food, which everyone commented on. I can't recommend this venue enough and would do it all over again, keep up the good work � More...
Fantastic day spent here at my cousins wedding on Sunday just gone, beautiful location, faultless service and lovely very professional staff. Would highly recommend if you're thinking of your big day or special occasion. More...
We got married at The Ashes on 25.03.17 and it was the perfect day from start to finish - all thanks to Jayne and The Ashes Team. We viewed the venue a year ago and nothing else seemed to compare. The barns are gorgeous and the surrounding area is simply stunning. Everyone who came to our wedding has since commented on how amazing the venue was. Jayne and the team were super lovely and organised. We didn't have to worry about a thing. They dressed the venue exactly how we wanted and were always there in the background if we needed them. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day and so grateful for everything The Ashes Team did. Thank you so much, Nat & Niall. More...
We had our wedding here yesterday! Cannot thank Stephanie and the team/Jenkinsons enough for everything they did to make our special day perfect! ! It was absolutely seamless! Excellent venue loved by all of our guests. Thank you!! More...
The Ashes Barns is a truly magical place where our dreams came true. It is the most stunning venue and we knew from the moment we visited that it was the place for us to become Mr and Mrs Sellman! All the staff are the most friendly and welcoming people you could ever wish to meet. Everyone worked so unbelievably hard to make our day run smoothly, right from the first time we visited to collecting our things the day after. The staff are a real credit to you. Dawn you are amazing and we will be forever grateful for all you did for us on our wedding day, thank you so so much, Mr and Mrs Sellman xxx More...
It is one of the most beautiful places iv ever been for a wedding,food was lovely and the staff were very helpful in everyway,very clean and tidy. Highly recommend this for anyone looking to book a place for their wedding in this area. More...
Couldn't have asked for a finer setting for the best day of our lives!! Our co-ordinator Stephanie was on hand for every beck and call and made sure the day ran seamlessly. Simply superb xx
Lauren Elizabeth Potts
The Ashes is quite simply the most beautiful wedding location. We had our wedding here on 20/02/2017 and from the moment we booked to our special day we couldn't have been more impressed with everything. The Ashes Team are so dedicated to you and your day. We don't live nearby, but the team were so accommodating and were always on hand to answer any question, big or small. Katie who was our events manager for the day was absolutely brilliant and made our day run smoothly and making us feel so special! We would recommend anyone considering getting married in the local area or further a field to consider the Ashes, especially given the fabulous catering and the no corkage offered there. Our only dissapointment was that the day had to end! More...
Nicola Jones Prev Wilshaw
We got married here yesterday and what a fantastic job the team did. Everything went so smoothly and the venue is such a beautiful place for any wedding. The event managers are both well organised and helpful people. They were constantly checking that everything was running ok throughout the day and if we needed anything they were there. The caterers Jenkinsons did an amazing job of the meals. Would highly recommend this place for anybodys wedding. Thankyou all More...
Gorgeous venue, fantasic staff, we had the best day ever! Thank you so much Sarah you made our day amazing!
Hayley Rebecca Naden
We got married here on the 3rd January and the team were absolutely excellent, setting up the venue perfectly and being on hand if we needed anything. The venue itself is just beautiful and speaks for itself. X More...
Married 2nd January 2017. The venue is stunning, the staff go above and beyond and the pictures you get with the back drop are breathtaking. Cannot fault it one bit
What can I say absolutely stunning venue was there yesterday for our beautiful niece's wedding katie & James. Not only in the daytime but when night time fell the venue looked magical with the Christmas tree lit and the surroundings lit with Christmas lights .
Such an amazing wedding venue and the staff are so helpful and efficient! Stephanie was an fantastic wedding planner, in the build up she responded quickly to queries and on the day had everything set up ready exactly as planned! On the day we had summer downpours and a relative taken ill during the wedding and Steph was so great! Nothing was too much trouble and she went out of her way to make our day special. I found the ashes to be knowledgable and helpful without being pushy and the venue itself is stunning and really well looked after! Our guests travelled over an hour to be there and they could all understand why once they saw it! Thanks again! Xx More...
One of the highest blessings in being considered by many to be amongst the best Caribbean musical entertainers in the UK, is the opportunity to be invited to perform at the very best venues around the country. I can honestly say that The Ashes Barns wedding venue sits within that category. (wonderful in-house team) - A pleasure to perform there again and very much highly recommended... Gary (Steelasophical Steel Band) More...
Wow, what can we say! This place made all our dreams come true. Beautiful venue for our perfect day �x
We got married here on 7th November and had the best day ever! I didn't have to worry about a single thing, staff were fantastic and Katie our planner made sure the whole day ran smoothly! The decorations were set out exactly as I'd wanted, staff always on hand to help and were so enthusiastic - it felt like we were the first people to ever get married there! You really do get their full attention and are made to feel so special. I had the best time in the morning getting ready with all my bridesmaids in the dairy room. All the guests were commenting on how gorgeous the venue was and the food served by jenkinsons was absolutely fantastic! I wish we could do it all over again! Highly recommend this venue! Cannot fault anything! Katrina and Mathew. More...
An absolutely amazing venue with lovely staff. Couldn't of asked for a nicer venue for my sister and husband to spend their special day. And the food was amazing
Janelle Leah Rose Richards
Well what can I say? Myself and Lee got married at The Ashes on the 18th October 2016. We originally wanted to marry down South West where our family live (we reside in Staffordshire). But we struggled to find the right venue for the amount of guests we had and our needs. On the off chance I googled 'wedding barns Staffordshire' and up came The Ashes as the first listing. I had a look at their flawless website and gave them a call. I spoke to a lovely woman called Steph who instantly made me feel warm, she advised me to come for a viewing that Sunday and so we did. On the day the venue was far for what we wanted but it was too late to cancel, we arrived and the venue took our breath away. We were shown around by Ben Reeves and before he'd even talked prices we knew we wanted to get married here! The icing on the cake was having Steph as our Event Manager, this woman really knows how to chill you out and put a smile on your face. Arriving 40 minutes late (as Brides do) nervous as hell, and seeing Stephs huge smile was enough to make my nerves wither away into excitement. All day she was directing us and advising us and checking we were ok. The day was phenomenal and we couldn't have imagined it anywhere else. Everywhere you looked, our guests were smiling and laughing and the venue was dressed perfectly. We couldn't ask for a more perfect day!! More...
I have performed numerous times at the ashes barns, the staff are helpful and the venue is brilliant with its own tuned piano i'm a very happy wedding singer! Xx
Such a Beautifull venue, great staff too
We got married on the 29th September and were lucky enough to have a glorious day of sunshine for our 4pm ceremony. The staff were very polite and efficient and Ken the Registrar was highly entertaining. The venue is beautifully kept and a stunning setting for a rural wedding - we felt very lucky. Drinks were in full swing at the reception whilst we were having photos and guests made their way through to eat at 6pm. The decor looked amazing thanks to my external supplier Nerissa Eve Weddings, Topiary Tree Florist and cake from Tickety Boo, along with support from The Ashes team. Food was fabulous with most plates being completely cleaned! We had our first dance and cut the cake, then enjoyed dancing the night away with The Joe Strange Band. Most things on the day were just perfect, though my reasons for rating this a 4* rather than 5* is because there were a few things (in terms of the details and service) that could have been better for me - it was our wedding day and I would expect everything to be completely on the money and for staff to be on the front foot - it's what we'd expect from an "award winning" venue and small details make all the difference: - items weren't placed where I'd asked them to be in terms of decorations, despite leaving clear instructions - candles on mezzanine weren't lit and I had to ask for this to be done - decor from the courtyard was not brought inside and I had to ask twice before it was done - my husband was left without a drink through dinner and had to flag someone down for a refill - the table cloths for the top table had not been ironed/steamed, so were still full of fold marks which are clearly visible in our photos - fire alarm went off in the bar and no instruction was given from staff to our guests on what to do - our best man (who is a fireman) took over and then worked with the team to get the alarm turned off (took over 15 minutes, with some guests left outside not knowing what was happening) - no announcement was made after the speeches to tell our guests where the bar was, so myself and new husband had to do so - my in-laws were given very limited guidance when collecting items the next morning, nor did we get a call from the venue to say there were more items that needed collection than expected (we got an email late afternoon when we were already home in Nottingham!) They felt they were very much part of a conveyer belt process in which they needed to get out ASAP, in order to get the next guests in. All in all it was a very good experience and we had a wonderful day, though for me being an absolute perfectionist, the above were the details that could of made it faultless. Those aside, we thank The Ashes team for their hospitality and support on our wedding day. More...
I can't thank The Ashes enough. From the moment we first viewed it we just knew that we wanted to get married here. 17th June was our turn and Dawn was an absolute dream and we were so pleased that she was there the help the day run smoothly! We had the best day of our lives. Thank you team Ashes!! Xxx More...
Thanks so much for a fantastic day! It could not have run more smoothly. The venue looked wonderful, and Katie took care of everything without fuss. All of our guests were blown away by it all. More...
We were married here on the 24th July and it was the most perfect day. You honestly couldn't ask for anything more from a wedding venue. Not only is it so beautiful but the whole team are out to ensure you have a wonderful day. Our guests had a great time and loved the venue. Right from the first time we were shown around, we were always made to feel welcome. Our events manager Steph was incredible- so enthusiastic and made everyone feel at ease. Wish we could do it all again. More...
Ashleigh Toni Holloway
This place is an absolute dream. We got married here on the 18th August and from our first viewing to the wedding day this team went above and beyond to help and support us. We couldn't have asked for or chosen a better venue than The Ashes. To all the staff that assisted us Ben, Jayne, Vicki, Sarah, Paula, Dawn, Lisa, Jackie & Dave (any anyone I missed out) Thank you! This team are so positive and professional and always happy to help. But the biggest thank you goes to our lovely Event Manager Steph. We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work and support, not only during the run up but during the whole day itself. We couldn’t have been happier with our special day, it was absolutely perfect in every single way. We have received the most loveliest compliments from our guests and they couldn’t get over the venue and the surroundings. A special thanks from my parents (girl Ash), they have done nothing but sing your praises and were so grateful for everything you did on the day. We feel very fortunate that we had such a professional and lovely person there for us. We really couldn’t have asked for anymore. Good luck with all that you do in the future, you are a real asset to The Ashes team! Thank you once again 'The Ashes' you gave us a dream wedding day! Ashleigh & Ashley Holloway More...
We got married on the 1st August 2016 and we had the most fantastic wedding day! Our wedding events manager was Sarah, who was fantastic throughout, polite, professional, friendly and funny. She put the bridal party at ease on the wedding morning and the day ran as smoothly as it possibly could! A really fantastic and beautiful venue with fantastic staff. On the run up to the wedding they answered any questions INCREDIBLY promptly and with a personal approach. We had a brilliant day thank you very much! More...

From 2pm till midnight everyone and I mean everyone had the most fun filled relaxed wedding and I would do it all again and not change a thing. Thanks to everyone at the Ashes for a truly magnificent wedding. The most proudest and happiest day of my life giving my beautiful daughter away to my fab new son in law Sean. More...

Hayleigh Amorette Steele
Me and my husband got married here on 15th September 2015 and it was the most amazing and magical experience from the moment we came and viewed the venue. Our event manager Sarah was fantastic and so helpful with all of my billion questions emailing back and forth and she dressed the room better than I could have done myself it was amazing. The day itself was so smooth and everyone commented on how fantastic the service was from everybody and how beautiful the ashes was! One comment from my dad was 'I never knew places like this existed' which really does sum it up. The drinks reception and food was also out of the world, drinks kept coming and the food was delicious, it was one of the nicest meals I've ever eaten!! I just can't thank you all enough for making our day so special, keep up the good work everyone!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Lots of love Mr and Mrs Steele :) More...
We got married at the Ashes on 28/03/16 and it was perfect. The venue is so beautiful and well maintained, and the staff are so helpful. The food (provided by Jenkinson's) was wonderful.

We filmed a wedding on Bank Holiday Monday 28-03-16 and wow what a day, the staff were very organised.

Darren and I were married at The Ashes on 5 March 2016 and throughout the whole experience, from the initial first look around with Ben (the owner), the various subsequent visits to help us decide our layouts/ designs, the final communications with Jayne (our events manager) and the actual day itself, Darren and I can not fault the service and dedication the whole team brought to our day. Jayne was fully prepared to work with all our suppliers on the day and by the time I arrived at the venue at 10:30, nearly everything was in its place and Jayne was more than happy to walk around with me to check I was 100% satisfied. The remaining final touches were in place long before Darren and the guests started to arrive. A huge thank you to Ben and Sarah for allowing us to use their remarkable venue for our wedding, and to the whole Ashes team who patiently answered the many emails I sent! A final thank you to Jayne (with the help of Dawn) for making sure our day could not have gone even better. Would highly recommend The Ashes for anyone thinking of getting married. Thank you again so much, Ciara & Darren x More...
An amazing venue with amazing staff and all set in a beautiful location. We got married here recently and the day was absolutely perfect. The ashes team were always at the end of the phone when we needed them and were always very quick with responses. We would recommend this place to anyone and everyone who wants to get married in a rustic location. Thank you so much to all the team at the ashes, our guests were full of compliments throughout the day, and still are.... A memory we will hold forever x More...
I've photographed 2 weddings at The Ashes and have been hugely impressed at both of them. Staff are very friendly, and always helpful. Food was amazing at both weddings... and more importantly... wow! what a venue for lovely photographs. So many cool backdrops, and all within a small walk from the venue itself. I look forward to hopefully shooting many more weddings here in the future. Ed Godden Photography More...
Fantastic wedding venue, one of the best I've worked at in the country. Very friendly events team and spectacular grounds.
Mandy Jones Wheawall
Went to my nieces wedding 6/12/15. It was one of the most beautiful weddings I've been too. The venue was amazing and just so classy. The staff had everything under control and well organised. There's a lovely atmosphere and just the best views. Can't wait to see the photos. Perfect wedding from start to finish. One particular young member of staff I would like to mention who I watched work none stop all day and was friendly polite and helpful. Hope Ive got his name correct Jay. He needed complimenting I think. More...
What a great venue! We had such a fun and relaxed wedding, just what we wanted. The team were superb and Jenkinsons caterers took good care of everyone. The barns looked magical with the Christmas trees and candlelight. We are both still beaming about it as it couldn't have gone better for us. Highly recommended if you want the stress taken out of your day! More...
I photographed two winter weddings here consecutively last weekend and staff were lovely. Backdrop was fabulous for photos. A really special venue. Hope to be back soon to photograph another! More...
You can see why the Ashes has won lots of awards! Gorgeous venue, but more importantly, everybody at the Ashes really looked after us! Thank you all!

We love the ashes an hope to come back one day. Jenkinsons staff also deserves a medal for what they do, everything was faultless. Thank you all again love the Smiths xxx More...
I cannot sum up how amazing our wedding day was at The Ashes. The team were fantastic replying to my last minute frantic emails way last their bed time! They made sure the day ran smoothly yet running around quietly so not to disturb the party! It was hands down the best day ever. More...
What an amazing venue with staff to match. I would be happy to recommend The Ashes to anyone.
I just had to write this review. We attended a wedding at this lovely venue and I was completely captivated by the whole process. It was a lovely day.The place was stunningly beautiful. Old, stone, cobbles, nicely restored with sensitive use of subdued colours, natural stone throughout and simple elegant furnishings. I was particularly impressed with the dressing room, and en suite, where the bride and entourage can dress and freshen up.The small number of buildings, surrounded by Highland cattle and grazing ponies in the fields, looks out over a lovely duck pond, and close by, the gardens with the water feature, add to the idyllic atmosphere, so romantic.The staff were great, pleasant, attentive, professional. The food, well, five stars just are not enough. The only downside was choice of ambient music whilst we ate, and mingled. I don't know who chose it but it was a bit odd. The weather was terrific, very hot and very sunny. I am sure the Ashes didn't arranged that, but it was nice anyway. I few table umbrellas might have helped cut down on the sunstroke hazard,w e desperately needed shade on the court.All in all, a lovely place, well suited to the romantic nature of the wedding. Good facilities, great location.Please be warned, your satnav will lead you to the back gate - which is the old entrance to the farm and not open. You need to check you have the right post code to get to the front drive, which is not far away. Thanks to everyone who made this a lovely day and a great start to the marriage of Heather and Lloyd Fifield. More...
Kelly Lorraine Lundie
We had our wedding here on Monday 6th July 2015. I can't begin to recommend this place enough! We had such an amazing day, the setting was so beautiful and a relaxed atmosphere, everyone just loved it. Even though it rained for the start of the day, nothing was ever to much for them to help and move things etc. The staff were just brilliant and a joy to work with throughout, from the very first day we saw The Ashes to our Wedding Day. Thanks to Paula especially for just being amazing, but to everyone on The Ashes team for providing our perfect wedding day. It was the best and perfect day we could have asked for!!! More...
Just simply one of the best wedding venues I've ever experienced. All the staff were So professional. Made Louise and Martins wedding so personal and special. Thanks Ashes staff x

One of my favourite venues for filming weddings. Very attractive rural location. Good background for my video footage.
Obviously I loved my wedding. But the day ran really smoothly and everything was perfect
My daughters wedding was on Easter Sunday 2015 and it was the most amazing day. The Ashes is a truly stunning location and the team are amazing. Everything was organised efficiently and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly reccomend this venue. More...
Got married at The Ashes on Saturday 28th March and the day was better than perfect. I'd happily do it again tomorrow and the day after. Jayne and the team ensured everything went smoothly, the barns looked perfect and all our guests commented on how wonderful the venue was and how great the day went. We couldn't be happier now we're married and our wedding at The Ashes was the perfect start! Thank you so much! More...
Sarah Jane Mulvey
My husband and I, oh I love it!, are just climbing down from cloud 9 after our fantastic wedding day at The Ashes Exclusive Country House Barn Wedding Venue. From the build up to the big day up until my friends collected everything on the Sunday has ran without a hitch. Very friendly approachable staff, amazing venue. Brides to be did hair and make up, they calmed everyone's nerves and made us look fantastic! Jenkinsons Caterers were top quality, they even carved a fish out of cheese for my husband...wish we had bought it home! Sound solutions did a fantastic job in playing our naff playlist! Everything was just fantastic. Can't wait to see the photographs from Jane Gilbert, she did a great job . Thank you to you all! xxxx More...
Cannot wait to get married here 30.07.16 cannot come quick enough ... ❤️❤️❤️
Andrew James Lilley
Me too beaut!!! Goin be gooooood! Awesome staff and awesome venue
We have played here several times and the barn has great accoustics for a top class string quartet. A beautiful venue for a wedding.
When we booked The Ashes we knew we had found a special venue. But, a special venue is nothing without the right people running and working there. The Ashes staff worked tirelessly to ensure our day ran smoothly. At first we were skeptical about only one choice of caterer but Jenkinsons delivered to a very high standard, all our guest went away full and in praise. The Ashes and Jenkinsons were simply fantastic. Many, many thanks again to The Ashes for making our day truly magical. Rebecca & Ozzie aka The Hendersons More...
Lovely venue, very serene I have done a lot of weddings here in 2014, my last one of the year being tomorrow
