One of Essex’s top wedding venues

One of Essex’s top wedding venues

The Reid Rooms is a converted, handsome weather-boarded barn set in the heart of the beautiful Essex countryside offering rural peace and seclusion.

Originally built in 1810 as stables for the working horses on the farm, The Reid Rooms have been tastefully converted to the highest standard to create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere.  Inside, there is a wealth of exposed timber beams and fittings; reflecting the long history of The Reid Rooms as barns for the working farm.

The Reid Rooms offers a linked series of rooms surrounding a landscaped courtyard. This gives great flexibility, allowing guests to enjoy reception time in either the courtyard and gardens or inside the function rooms and evening guests can opt to gather for quiet conversation in the lounge, whilst others enjoy a disco in the bar.
