The Mythe Barn is an extremely popular, award-winning barn wedding venue in idyllic countryside in Atherstone, near Tamworth. In this guide, we’ll explain the background to the venue, the history and of course what makes it an awesome wedding venue.
I’m very much looking forward to popping along for a visit one of these days to get some photos of this stunning place (as I write this we’re currently ‘enjoying’ another lockdown because of Coronavirus, so not allowed out!)
Why do we think Mythe Barn would be an awesome wedding venue?
The beautifully restored Mythe Barn is an incredible place to get married. It is a idyllic, rustic barn wedding venue set amidst the stunning Leicestershire countryside. With a choice of tying the knot under the oak beams of the barn itself or an outdoor garden wedding surrounded by rolling hills, meadows and of course the gardens, there are so many spots for photographs. All of this together makes it one of the finest wedding venues in Leicestershire.
