About Cripps Barn

Cripps Barn can offer all you need for a truly wonderful wedding day. Opened in 1990, the venue was one of the first party barns. When you hold your day here, you will enjoy delicious food in a relaxed, informal environment with stunning surroundings. With over 25 years’ experience managing weddings, Cripps Barn’s team will provide superb service from start to finish.

The venue enjoys a lovely countryside location near Bibury in the Coln Valley. The 18th-century Cotswold stone barn is beautifully finished with flagstone floors, rustic beams and an inviting open fireplace. For additional space, you and your guests can also make use of the charming Oak Room, connected to the barn by huge 12ft barn doors.

Following your ceremony, the main stone barn can accommodate up to 100 seated guests to dine, while the Oak Dining Room can seat up to 150 guests.

The outdoor spaces at the venue offer a number of special features, including camping facilities.

Best wedding food we have ever had
Venue Service

By July 2016, on 15 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2016

Thank you so much to everyone at Cripps Barn for making our wedding day so brilliant. Alice did an amazing job as front of house and lots of our guests have commented on how efficient all the waiting and bar staff were throughout the whole day and night. So many of our friends and family have said "that was the best wedding food we have ever had" and all our guests couldn't believe how beautiful the venue was. All in all it was perfect. Thank you!

Wonderful day

We had such a wonderful day - a complete whirlwind but everyone fell in love with Cripps. We were so impressed with everything - lovely food, atmosphere and staff. You, Dave and the team worked tirelessly every moment and it did not go unnoticed - we had so many lovely comments.

We just wanted to say an absolutely huge thank you for our wedding. It was absolutely perfect, and we couldn't get over how amazing everything looked. Thanks to all the team for the organisation beforehand and a huge thanks to Tina who was brilliant and really reassuring, and a nice calm face. The food was absolutely delicious, and so plentiful! We really couldn't have ask for anything more! We've been trying to think if we would've done anything differently, and we really can't think of a single thing!! Thank you again for making such an incredibly memorable day for us.

Best party we have ever been to...........
Venue Service

By Frances, on 14 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2016

Thank you so much for helping make our party so brilliant – we had the most fabulous time and could not have been happier with how the evening went! Everything was perfect – the beautiful garden, (the WEATHER!!!!!), the cocktails, the dinner, the staff, etc etc., it just went far too fast……. Flora, thanks for your efficiency, patience, good humour and the fact that you never once said ‘No, it is too late to change your minds’……….. Which must have been pretty tempting! It is rather nice to think that the best party we have ever been to was OURS! Thanks, once again, for everything and please thank the rest of the Cripps team on our behalf,

Wonderful venue but 'just another wedding'
Venue Service

By Sky Anderson, on 07 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2016

We had our wedding here in June and although we had a magical day, this was because of our hard work organising and our fabulous friends and family. Unfortunately we have been left with the feeling that we were 'just another wedding' at Cripps. This venue is great if you are very laid back about your day and have not invested too much in the decor you provide/create. We have been left with precious gifts just thrown away, ruined speeches and wedding cake we never had a chance to taste! Such a shame as this truly is a beautiful venue, but some serious tweaks need to be made in service!

Felicity Henriques, Owner at Cripps Barn responded to this review on 14/07/2016 15:05:00

Thank you very much for your feedback. We always take on board any comments that are made, so that we can improve our service for future brides and grooms.

Everyone fell in love with Cripps!

We have made some amazing memories!
Venue Service

By Cripps Couple, April 2016, on 25 Apr 2016

We would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone at Cripps Barn - our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and more – from the initial viewing to the wedding day itself – THANK YOU! Our wedding was a little over 2 weeks ago, and we still keep thinking of what an amazing day it was – we keep piecing bits together and getting together with friends and family to chat about it. Everyone even now 2 weeks on have said it was the best food they’d eaten at a wedding and what a beautiful venue and location it was – comments from our guests like these only highlight why we chose Cripps Barn, and we are so glad we did! Alice was brilliant on the day - from helping me get out of the car (or keeping me in it, as guests were still arriving!) to making sure we were OK during the day. We remembered half way through the day that Alice showed us round for our initial viewing and thought how lovely she was then and how perfect it was that she was there on the day! – Thank you :) We have made some amazing memories and so happy that we will look back in years to come and remember our amazing day at Cripps. x

Thank you for making our day so wonderful x

Once again thank you to all involved on our wedding on 31st March. We really did have the best day of our lives and everyone who came all commented on how amazing and perfect cripps was. Thank you for making our day so wonderful x

Really was an amazing day!!
Venue Service

By Joanna, April 2016, on 21 Apr 2016

We got married at Cripps Barn on 3rd April, and it really was an amazing day!! In the run up to the day, the staff were so helpful, informative and constantly reassuring. We visited the barn a few times and The New Inn at Coln before our big day, and always met with professionalism, great food and friendly faces. On the day itself, we could not have asked for better. Tina was on hand all day long to make sure the day ran smoothly- even to the point of helping friends in high heels into flip-flops and untangling me from a rose bush!! The venue looked absolutely stunning and all family and friends commented on how lovely it was. And the food was everything we hoped it would be!! The staff were attentive, though at the same time, discreet. The service could not be faulted at all. We could not have asked for a more wonderful day in a more wonderful venue. Thank you so much to everyone for making it so!! We just want to do it all over again!!! Joanna

Staff were brilliant!
