About Tythe

The Tythe Barn is a family business founded in 1998 and set on the working farm of the Deeley family. Our setting oozes character and style, while our approach is simple, honest and down-to-earth. As one of the country’s most established barn venues, we offer a wealth of experience and a deep understanding for what it takes to throw a fabulous event.

Once here, time slows down. There’s a serious commitment to detail, unwavering passion and welcoming smiles from a team that love what they do. You’ll feel at home and part of the family – from fairy lights, garden games and fresh, stone-baked pizzas to sheep in the fields and cows peering over the fence – they’re all waiting to be part of your occasion.  

Our Approach

At The Tythe Barn we are aware of our responsibility towards the environment. Over the years we have implemented a number of measures to reduce our carbon footprint and give back to the local community that we’re so much a part of. Our approach to sustainability is a fundamental part of how we operate and we are constantly seeking new ways to be greener, more socially responsible and environmentally friendly whilst running a successful business. Further details on our sustainability efforts can be found in our brochure.

Team Tythe

  • Will & Emma

    Will founded the business in 1997 and is as heavily involved today as he was back then. You will see him planting trees, cleaning toilets and re-arranging the tables, yet his vision is still the driving force behind The Tythe Barn. Emma is the creative head behind the business, directing all elements of the brand identity and interior styling of our spaces. Whilst she works tirelessly in the background, her husband takes all the credit! (She may well have written this, don't let him know!)

  • Sandy
    Mrs Moneypenny

    Sandy has the (un)envied role of sorting out the financial side of the business and is an absolute pleasure to work alongside. Her friendly and gentle approach brings a much-needed air of calm to the office, particularly Will's side of the office!

  • Marie
    Office Administrator

    There's always a lot of love around the barn (but in addition to our lovely couples) let us introduce you to Marie. A lady with a huge heart and incredible smile, whether you meet her in person, over the phone or by email. Marie takes the helm as Office Manager and is in the hot seat for all of your questions.

  • Laura
    Function Manager

    Laura has a wealth of experience as an events manager and is a super talented member of our team with many strings to her bow, one of which happens to be that she has recently trained as a Celebrant.  Rather handy me thinks! Fantastic at running events, Laura is kind, gentle and brilliant at adapting to whatever is thrown at her so you are definitely in great hands.

  • Tina
    Function Manager

    Tina has been working at The Tythe Barn for a number of years. Cool, calm and collected with a faultless memory and a keen eye for detail, she has a natural flair for event management and will have the look and feel of your event nailed down in no time at all.

  • Phil
    Top Trump Of All Trades

    Beverage manager, groundsman, handyman, DIY specialist and occasional Agony Aunt - what more can we say? Phil has been a loyal member of the team here for years, is a valued colleague and continues to blossom at the barn - real title 'Ground, Facility and Maintenance Manager'. Everybody needs 'A Phil'.

  • Joe
    Man About Town

    Joe is one of those team members that is always quietly busy in the background.  He'll be hidden from view and beavering away on some job somewhere on site - behind a flowerbed, beneath a ceremony bench, under the bar (cleaning pipes, not dozing) but when you need him he's there in a flash.  The backbone for much of what goes on behind the scenes during the week, he spends a lot of his time lifting, cleaning, fixing and sanding but he will then pop up impeccably dressed with a smile, as always, Front Of House for an event.

  • Vicki
    Social Media Superstar

    Vicki is the whizz behind most of our Social Media, so if you're into your Insta or love a dose of Pinterest then you've probably already enjoyed some of her regular posts. Social Media can be mind-boggling but with her calm, organised approach and thirst for what's 'trending' - Vicki is our girl!

  • Cleaners
    The Clean Sweep Brigade

    They are a brilliant, dedicated and loyal team who are vital to the smooth running of the business. They always arrive with smiles on their faces at silly o'clock in the morning and work tirelessly around the barn whilst the majority of us lay tucked up in our beds. We could not do without them!
