About Cripps Barn

Cripps Barn is the original wedding barn from the family-run Cripps & Co.

Cripps Barn is an 18th century Cotswold barn, set in the heart of the countryside near Bibury in the beautiful Coln Valley. With its flagstone floors, rustic beams and roaring open fireplace, this historic building has been transformed to provide a wedding barn for all seasons.

Ceremonies are held in the main barn, whose solid stone structure is finished with a medieval chandelier, a large stone fireplace, a huge candelabra and two huge entrances bringing light in from a large terrace on one side and the sun-filled Oak Room on the other. We can accommodate 120 guests in this room, with a further 30 guests seated in the Oak Room with a view through to the ceremony.

Alternatively, we have an Oak Pavilion in a woodland glade in the gardens of the barn, for those wishing to hold their wedding ceremony outside in the warmer months.

The grounds of Cripps Barn are as lovely as the barn itself and provide an excellent backdrop for wedding photography. A vast glass and timber door opens out onto a large terrace with views over the Cotswold countryside and onto our woodland garden, complete with fire pits and a large bonfire.

Guests can eat in style in our light and spacious Oak Room, with further dining capacity in the Ceremony Room. We can accommodate 150 seated guests in the Oak Room and 84 seated guests in the Ceremony Room.

Wedding feasts are created by our own chefs, who flame-cook food on a giant rotisserie and BBQ grill. We buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously.

The main barn is transformed into a spectacular dance floor after dinner, where guests can celebrate into the night thanks to our special late 1 am license.

Our on-site wedding team are on hand to help with everything from the big ideas to the last minute details.

    A magical venue

    We had a truly wonderful wedding day at Cripps Barn. The venue with the log fire, twinkling candles and fairy lights made for a magical, cosy setting to our very special day. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel special, both on the day and in all communications prior to the event. We were so well looked-after, the day ran like clockwork, and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests have commented on what a perfect venue it was and agreed it was the best food we'd had at a wedding. Whilst government restrictions meant our plans were altered including having a much smaller number of guests, the Cripps team were very understanding, helpful and flexible. We are so pleased we chose Cripps Barn as the venue to celebrate our wedding, and have such fantastic memories of our day.

    Thank you Cripps

    Our wedding day was something out of a fairytale as cheesy as that sounds. Cripps Barn is the most idyllic place to get married. Every one of my guests commented on the beautiful décor and the amazing location. I had a lot of "that's the most beautiful wedding venue I have ever been to". I knew within minutes of being at Cripps for our first visit that I wanted to get married there. I also can't praise the wonderful crew at Cripps from James who answered my thousand of questions promptly and put me at ease whenever I worried about anything. Lucy our front of house manager in the day was amazing, she made sure our day went according to plan and I didn't have to do a thing. Dave our night manager was also brilliant, anything we needed he sorted. I have to also mention the food because it really is incredible and something all of our guests mentioned. I wish I could have my wedding day all over again at Cripps, it truly was magical thank you so much Cripps team xxx

    Amazing venue and staff

    We instantly fell in love with Cripps Barn and the love story continues even after our wedding.

    The barn and setting itself is beautiful and the food and drink were unbelievable. We married in October and I still have people telling me how impressed they were with the food.

    The staff also deserve a special mention - the staff throughout the planning process and the day were exceptional and really couldn’t have helped us more! They were so patient with our many many questions and requests and nothing was ever too much trouble! On the day everything ran so smoothly and they helped to guide us through the process of the day as we were pretty clueless! I would recommend anyone to marry at Cripps - you couldn’t ask for a more special venue!
