"The Nook is an absolute triumph. It was the perfect setting to get ready in during the morning! It has such a comfortable and chilled feel but also it’s been made to feel very special. I loved the huge mirror and and places to put the dress, shoes etc. The mirrors to have makeup and hair done make a beautiful backdrop for photos. It was one of the highlights of my day getting ready in there." (Sam, February 2018)
We had an idea when planning The Nook...to create a comfortable and luxurious haven for the bride and her bridesmaids. A secluded spot where they could enjoy the experience of getting ready together. The styling of The Nook perfectly compliments the character and essence of the main Tythe Barn but we have also offered the bride a real 'home from home' in the hope that she is surrounded by everything she needs in order to allow her and her guests to indulge and pamper themselves on such a special day.
The Nook is divided in to two main rooms - one side caters solely for the bride whilst the other room has been created to offer a large space for the bridesmaids, mother of the bride, flower girl, page boy and so on. Both rooms have been carefully thought out and the needs of the bride and her attendants have been considered at every stage. Built to a very high specification you will notice seasoned oak beams above, under-floor heating in the ensuite bathroom and plenty of mirrors and lighting.
Both rooms have dressing tables with large mirrors, comfortable seating and additional mobile lighting. Lots of little extras and 'just in case' items are provided in a cute little silver safe. There are large, strong hooks set high up on the wall to accommodate floor-length dresses and in the bride's room there is a 4ft x 6ft ornate gold mirror. Also to hand - DAB radio (from which you can plug in your iPod), sofa, umbrellas (lets hope not!), small fridge and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities.
Should you choose to book The Nook, we will prep it for your arrival and provide you with fresh milk in the fridge, still and sparkling water, complimentary tea and coffee as well as clean towels, soaps and toilet rolls. If you would also like to order a bottle of Champagne, wine or some soft drinks just let us know in advance - (there will be a small additional charge for these items.) We hope you will find it a comfortable space and settle in and make it your own for the day.
'The Nook is such a delight. The Bridesmaids who had not seen it before were wowed by how every little detail had been thought about, that you might need in preparing for the day. It had more than enough space for all 8 of us to get ready. It was lovely to also be able to pop back into the Nook to use the bathroom or touch up any makeup during the day. It gave you a few minutes to process everything that was going on.' (Katie, Bride - March 2018)
The Nook is situated next to the main barn. On leaving The Nook you enter the gardens of the main barn through the beautiful stone archway and then follow a pretty garden path which creates a stunning natural aisle under the pergola - towards your partner.
By providing the bride with an opportunity to get ready on site we really hope to offer her the very best start to this incredibly special moment in her life. Please have fun, relax and enjoy it... it's all about you!

"I've had the pleasure of photographing weddings at the Tythe Barn several times - it's definitely one of my favourite venues to photograph. The staff are really on the ball and each wedding has felt really relaxed and comfortable. Their "Nook" is the perfect wedding preparation room. They've really thought of everything in there, from keeping the space private, to having lots of plugs for hair dryers and a place to hang everything. Top Notch Wedding Venue."
