About Cripps Barn wedding venue

Cripps Barn is an 18th-Century Cotswold stone barn wedding venue in a lovely, isolated position by the Coln Valley in Gloucestershire. We offer both indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies.

We offer free camping on site, and there is also plenty of accommodation nearby including self-catering cottages, lovely pubs with rooms and B & Bs, as well as boutique and spa hotels.

You will see from the Customer letters on our website that we cook amazing yet uncomplicated food using the best possible ingredients, and that we have great staff who will look after you fantastically well but in a relaxed and informal atmosphere that some have described as the antidote to the stuffy hotel wedding.

We're very up front with our prices. We give you the opportunity to complete an online quote which gives an accurate idea of costs, before you book or view the barn. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to have a look round.

Additional details:

The barn will accommodate 10 round tables, each of which seats a maximum of 10 people. There is also an attached purpose built Oak Room which is beautifully fairy-lit and has wonderful views of the Cotswold countryside. This will seat up to 150 people on round tables.

We are really proud of our food: We cook great, open fire meals on our 8-spit rotisserie or our giant BBQ (try googling "Godgrilla"), which can accommodate 5 whole lambs. If that sounds like too much meat, we love catering for vegetarian and vegan guests (and entire weddings) with our expertise in mediterranean and middle-eastern food.
