The Grounds

Let us take you on a virtual wander.

Green and gorgeous outdoor spaces

Views over the rolling Oxfordshire countryside; a sense of serenity and being in your own private world; beautiful photo opportunities galore. If these are on your dream wedding checklist, then the grounds and gardens at Stratton Court Barn are about to make you very happy indeed. Let us take you on a virtual wander through our green and gorgeous outdoor spaces…

The Rose Garden

The Rose Garden will be one of the first things your guests see as they walk through from the car park. This is our formal garden, lit up with splashes of colour for much of the year, and it’s a brilliant part of our grounds for couple portraits and group photos.

The Courtyard

From the Rose Garden, move through to the Tuscan style courtyard, the perfect space for canapés and catching up. With Festoon lighting, parasols and late night gatherings round the fire pit this is where you can spend your drinks reception and later watch the sunset too!

Enhance your courtyard drinks reception with one or more of these:

/Oak gazebo with cushy lounge furniture year round
/Oversized cream parasols on sunny days
/Fire pit with rustic benches at night
/‘Beer barrow’ filled with ice and bottled beer
/A food truck in the evening to keep hunger well and truly at bay
/Twinkling fairy light canopy

The Lake

Also nestled in our grounds is a lake. It’s small but perfectly formed, and it makes for a stunning backdrop at golden hour, especially on the little bridge over to Rory Island. Feeling extra adventurous? Take a turn around the island with your beloved in our rowing boat ‘Poppy’.
