The Venue

Oxfordshire barn wedding


Cogges is a beautiful wedding venue with over 1000 years of history, as well as being an integral part of the local area and a filming location for Downton Abbey.  Weddings are a really important part of life at Cogges as they raise money for the upkeep of the site so it can keep its doors open for the whole community. It also offers two stunning seventeenth century barns which provide a wonderful setting for celebrations and a perfect blank canvas where you can add your own personalised details to make your special day complete.

We offer a relaxed and flexible service to meet your needs – after all, your wedding is as individual as you are. We can offer guidance if and when this is something you want; however, you have the freedom to use suppliers of your choice to bring your dream barn wedding to life.

We have a limited number of wedding slots per year. Plus, we ensure that there is only one wedding per weekend. This means that you will have exclusive use of the barns and dedicated time to set up the day before your wedding (and tidy away the day after) giving you the chance to really enjoy your wedding day the way you want it.

More than just a barn, we offer lots of space (inside and out of the barns) where you and your guests can roam. There’s room for canapés on the lawn, a barbecue or hog roast, a fire pit, food vans, music and games, along with beautiful rural backdrops for photographs around the grounds. And after 5pm, as well as the barns, the rest of the site is exclusively yours to enjoy too.

Being in Witney means there’s plenty of nearby accommodation, ample parking and we’re even close to the bus route!

There’s a lovely laid back and friendly atmosphere at Cogges; you’ll feel like you’re stepping in to history whilst making lots of lovely new memories of your own.
