The Wedding venue at the Great Tythe Barn is the Great Tythe Barn itself. You could hardly wish for a better venue - late 16th century, as atmospheric as the best old chapels, with a suite of smaller rooms for the reception areas, all intercommunicating to make one large room. Modern facilities and well furnished, where necessary.
However, the guest accommodations need some uprating, which is why I have given an overall 4/5. The wedding venue is 5, the rooms/cottages are currently 3. Why? The cottages are suffering from a lack of attention to detail. The buildings look stunning, the facilities need uprating. Poorly designed bathrooms - broken hooks on the back of the door - nowhere to put anything down, no chairs/stools in the bedroom/bathroom, showers too small. Damp smells suggest saving on heating. The beds were awful, and you are not stopping one night but three, I went home after two - my back is the ultimate bed tester. No grill pan in the property and very old pans in drawer didn't make getting a cooked breakfast any easier than the B & B rooms. We were given one small red towel each, which smelt appalling. Hardly adequate for three days showers. Luckily I had taken towels with me, and warned others to bring their own Bath towels. If they told guests that they cannot supply the usual amount/size of towels, there would be less disappointment - this is not a hotel, but a venue with self-catering rooms, and it could be so much more - but they are already charging for that. If they read this - how about some cushions for those huge sofas? And don't you just hate it when the bottom of the bedroom door is miles from the floor! The service came from the caterers/ the venue coordinator/ the outside support. Beware the owner's dog!
