About Us

Milling Barn is a beautiful barn wedding venue in Hertfordshire, located near the rural village of Throcking, close to Royston. Milling Barn is a stunning wedding venue in the rolling Hertfordshire countryside set around a wonderful 17th Century oak barn.

This romantic and spacious barn incorporates the traditional character of a breathtaking 17th Century barn, alongside the rustic charm of the old farmyard.

The impressive traditional barn is a magical setting for weddings, with its high ceilings, and exposed beams, Milling Barn has a rustic feel and period charm which lends itself perfectly to both your ceremony and wedding breakfast.

Spacious and sophisticated, the Barn is truly beautiful and a breathtaking place to celebrate your special day. The Barn is illuminated with soft lighting which further highlights the original timber framework and beams, and gives a special glow that complements the natural daylight which floods in through the windows. By night, the lights are dimmed and the Barn’s atmosphere changes to provide the perfect backdrop for dining, drinking, dancing and celebrating your big day. The garden and patio provide the perfect space to relax outdoors once the formalities have been completed.

Milling Barn also offers a number of outdoor ceremony options, including the Middle Garden and Blunts Wood. The woodland is an enchanting and unique position for brides and grooms to exchange their vows as it’s totally secluded in a natural clearing within the trees.

There are an endless array of photo opportunities in the well-tended gardens, throughout the farm, and woodlands.

With outstanding transport connections, Milling Barn is within an hour of London, 30 minutes from Cambridge, 20 minutes from Hertford, and 15 minutes from Stevenage.

  • This was the first and ONLY venue that my now husband and I viewed at the beginning of the year, fell in love with it, and decided to go ahead and book. Working with the venue team was extremely easy from the outset, and we got everything we wished for in our wedding day, and more. The venue is incredible and beautiful even without any additional decorations, the chef's at the Chopping Block are great, and very accommodating of special requests, and all other staff were fantastic. The most amazing and memorable day in my life at Milling Barn.. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thank you for hosting our wedding this weekend. The venue is beautiful and the planning team was brilliant. All queries answered quickly and everyone loved the barn! Milling Barn was our first venue we looked at and we didn't even bother to look at any others. Thank you again for being a massive part of making our big day so wonderful.
