Barnsley Resort was created nearly 200 years ago by Godfrey Barnsley. He built it for his wife, Julia, who he married on Christmas Eve. The manor was originally called the Woodlands and it was inspired by the work of Andrew Jackson Downing. Unfortunately, Julia passed away before ever seeing the completion of the house.

This venue is so beautiful on its own....how could your wedding not be beautiful? This truly is a magical place and provided the perfect whimsical location to host my fairytale dream wedding. From the very beginning, the sweet girls that coordinate and do the wedding/event planning were so easy to work with and very helpful all the way through the very end. They made sure that everything was to my liking an exactly the way my husband and I wanted. They made sure every detail was taken care of and helped me with any question or often gave very helpful advice regarding vendors and other wedding day decisions. Their staff and hospitality was always cheerful, inviting, and more than outgoing to provide true service and help in any way imaginable. Their catering and food service was out of this world delicious and served very high quality and beautiful dishes. My guests are still raving about the beauty of this location and how wonderful the food was that night. I could not imagine having my wedding day hosted anywhere else. The entire weekend was full of magic provided by this high quality establishment. We are so appreciative of all the work the Barnsley team did and are so thankful for their part in our wonderful wedding day! We look forward to spending our future anniversaries with a stay at Barnsley Gardens!!

Barnsley is a dream come true. My husband and I got married there one week ago and it seriously couldn’t have been more perfect. The venue speaks for itself but the staff I just could rave about all day. Nora and Megan especially, thank you for all that you did for us leading up to our big day and on our big day. From the food tastings (best wedding food EVER btw), making sure my guests were all happy, upgrading me to my own cottage because you know I need my space and then running around with me on the day of... I can’t thank you enough. It was a day I’ll never forget and I’m honored that I get to go back to this place for years to come to relive the love and excitement that we felt that day.

Just WOW! I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Barnsley for our recent wedding. The resort is just absolutely gorgeous, especially after all the recent renovations, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and fun weekend. The wedding staff went above and beyond and any time throughout the weekend that something wasn't absolutely perfect, they were so quick to accommodate and do whatever was needed to ensure our special day amazing. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves as much as the guests because we had nothing to worry about the entire weekend - they took care of it all. Wish we could do it all over again - we're already planning to go back for our first anniversary.
