Thythe Barn 1

The Great Tythe Barn tucked away down a tree-lined driveway amidst 200 acres of privately owned land, is a secluded and picturesque venue for weddings and conferences. The stunning Grade II listed, C16th Cotswold stone barn is the focal point of the Estate which is surrounded by former farm buildings, now transformed into 11 self-catering cottages as well as Bed & Breakfast accommodation.
