Wedding Receptions at Fison Barn

Fison Barn

A magical location nestling in an Oxfordshire area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Aga Tomaszek PhotographyFison Barn is a stunning and beautifully maintained nineteenth century barn: a unique venue. The original oak beams have been lovingly restored and local Western Red Cedar has been used on the exterior cladding.

Fison Barn offers a picturesque ‘blank canvas' - you have the flexibility to organise the catering, decoration and entertainment exactly as you want it. 

*NEW for 2018* We're delighted to say that Fison Barn and its courtyard are now licensed for wedding ceremonies.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do

Our eco-friendly biomass boiler provides under floor heating during winter for all our buildings. We harvest rain water for our toilets and our solar panels generate greenhouse-free electricity to meet a substantial portion of our electricity requirements.

Surrounded by nature

The large barn doors open onto our tranquil courtyard where bats and swallows have made their homes in the barn eaves, red kites swoop overhead and there are floral displays of herbs and plants attracting butterflies and insects.  The courtyard area provides an ideal extension for events in good weather or an area for a marquee (separately hired).

Only 11 miles from Oxford

Nestling at the foot of the Wittenham Clumps nature reserve, Fison Barn is set amidst 700 acres of stunning countryside yet is conveniently located just 11 miles from Oxford and 18 miles from Reading.
