Testimonials

"I would just like to express my sincere gratitude regarding the extremely well managed wedding of my daughter Rebecca in November 2021. The whole event was an overwhelming success and I would like to thank everybody involved. All of your staff were professional, friendly and attentive, as were the two ladies who conducted the official ceremony. The meal was excellent and well presented, as was the evening buffet. The locally produced sparkling and still wines were very nice and I was also pleased that the bar prices were not excessive, as can be the case at some venues. The venue itself is superb and finished to a very high standard. All the years of hard work have been worth it. It was a very special day for my daughter, her new husband and all of their guests. Thank you once again." Michael Thomas
From our very first phone call with Carol from Rackleys, we were so impressed with their level of professionalism and their desire to make our day exactly as we had imagined it. We never once felt like we were just another client to get through the door. Carol and Sophie listened to our ideas and built on them to help us create the most wonderful day! The barn and grounds at Rackleys are absolutely stunning and the team did a great job of decorating the barn that matched our theme perfectly. The food from Absolute Cuisine was incredible (especially the canapes!) and the level of service and care from the catering staff was exactly what you would want at a wedding. Planning a wedding during a pandemic wasn't easy but Carol and Sophie made the whole process run smoothly with fast responses to emails and phone calls. One of our favourite memories of the day was in the evening where all our guests were playing lawn games with a beautiful pink sunset in the background and we had an impromptu space hopper relay race with all the bridesmaids and groomsmen! Massive thank you to the Rackleys team, especially Carol and Sophie, for the most perfect wedding day!! Lots of love, Nikita and Joe x Joe & Nikita
Thank you so much to the Rackley’s team for hosting our wedding in June. We had many curve balls thrown whilst planning a wedding over the last 18 months as covid restrictions continued to create much uncertainty but the Rackley’s team, in particular Carol and Sophie, were immensely professional and supportive in helping to adapt our plans to the ever changing circumstances. The Bride’s Room was the most stunning place to get ready with my Bridal team, and the Barn was the most beautiful space to host our guests for our reception (it was no disappointment to move inside when the rain set in!). It is clear that much attention to detail has been made by the team to creating a wonderfully versatile and unique place to host your wedding. We received so many compliments from our guests on the delicious and high quality food served by the Absolute Cuisine Team. Please pass on our thanks to the wait staff who were so professional, friendly and helpful on the day. We can’t thank both the Rackley’s and Absolute Cuisine team enough for making our day so memorable. Saskia & Jonathan
From the very beginning Rackleys were absolutely amazing. From going to view their unfinished project on the grounds, we could see exactly how it was going to be. On the special day, upon arrival I was lost for words, it was perfect. Everything from start to finish Rackleys staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, and well organised. We had a small wedding which consisted of immediate family, it was a short wedding that we opted for but we could have stayed there all day and night. The food was top notch and went down very well too. The location and views from around the site were beautiful, and were a great backdrop for all the photography. Thank you to all involved with our day at Rackleys, we made memories we will cherish forever and would highly recommend them to anyone for any event. Jen & Marc

Rackleys Barn has a rich history. With most of modern Cadmore End, it was originally part of the Norman manor of Fingest. The first known owner was Sir Edward Unton; a staunch Puritan and also a spy in the court of Elizabeth I. In 1591, Thomas Tipping bought the land, and kept it in his family for 200 years. The Tipping’s also built the farm in the early 1700s, and the name Rackleys honours our first tenant farmer.

Rackleys Chiltern Hills has been lovingly restored to an impeccable standard and with meticulous care taken in preserving the character and charm. If you are looking for uniqueness, charm and elegance, then Rackleys barn is exactly what you have been searching for.
