Best Day Ever!

Initially thought HG would be too big for us, but knew it was the one when I stepped into the ceremony hall on a lookaround - the team have looked after us so well - very responsive to messages ahead of the day, and were available to us all day on the big day!
It's a beautiful venue, and the food is amazing. HG clearly know what they're doing, everything was slick and professional, we couldn't have asked for a smoother day. We were a little unconventional in that we wanted to walk down the aisle together after a first look, HG were very accommodating and made it work without spoiling the surprise!
HG will hold a very special place in our hearts, we couldn't thank them enough for helping to create the most special day with us! Xx

Breathtaking, flawless and magical

A perfect venue for the perfect day. Breathtaking venue with incredible food and friendly staff. Made the whole experience stress free. The online portal system made correspondence so easy with the friendly and approachable staff.
Our guests were just as blown away with the day as we were.
The evening was just as spectacular with the outdoor fire pits, our guests felt it was magical driving up to the venue all lit up.
On the day, everything was seamless due to the attentiveness of the venue.
Couldn鈥檛 have wished for a better day.
Would 100% reccomended this venue to anyone!

From the moment we stepped into Hazel Gap Barn for the very first time we knew the venue was for us and we have not looked back since. We have just had the most incredible wedding day there and we cannot thank the staff at Hazel Gap enough. As soon as I pulled up at the venue I was put at ease, nothing was too much trouble and I really felt like every single staff member at Hazel Gap ensured that we had the best day ever. The planning process was so smooth, the communication was great and I can honestly say nothing was a stress! The grounds were beautiful, the venue was super clean and the food was fantastic! Thankyou so much Hazel Gap 馃

The Perfect Wedding Day!

We got married at Hazel Gap on 27th May 2023.

We are based in Leicestershire and struggled to find a venue that was exactly what we were looking for within our area. After looking further afield and coming across Hazel Gap online, we knew that we had found 'the one', which was only confirmed upon viewing the venue.

Everything went absolutely perfect on our wedding day, from the food to the weather - we couldn't possibly have wished for more.
The staff at Hazel Gap are amazing and so well organised. Alix and Amanda were brilliant on the day and helped to make sure that everything ran smoothly (as well as keeping us both calm pre-ceremony!)

Our family and friends have not stopped talking about how gorgeous the venue is and how incredible the food was on the day!

We can't thank Hazel Gap enough for making our wedding day so incredibly special, we will treasure the day for the rest of our lives.

Thank you so much to everyone at Hazel Gap, you guys really are the best!

Amazing service from the start

When we viewed Hazel Gap Barn we instantly fell in love and knew it was the venue for us. The service was exceptional from the very beginning and Chris and Alix guided us all the way from the planning phase all the way until the end of our wedding day. Without the amazing staff at Hazel Gap Barn our wedding would have been a lot more stressful but their professionalism throughout the process meant we were calm and could enjoy our day - Chris and Alix literally took care of every detail. Thank you so much to everyone at Hazel Gap Barn for giving us our perfect day!!

We were absolutely overjoyed with our experience at Hazel Gap Barn from the planning process to the actual day itself. The staff were incredible, attentive and made everything run smoothly. Jodie was a joy to work with and really made our day. Thank you to all of the team! We are sad it鈥檚 over.

If you鈥檙e looking to book here I can鈥檛 recommend highly enough - great value for money and absolutely stunning. Our guests all commented on the high quality of the food, beautiful setting and smooth running.

Wow, this venue truly is stunning. Every inch of its surroundings and the barn itself is just absolutely breath taking. I was so proud to have my wedding is such a stunning setting. Not only that, every single member of staff we spoke too through the planning process was exceptional, a true credit to themselves - friendly, helpful, professional- the list could go on! No question was too much trouble, they were attentive and held high standards which they ensure are met on your wedding day. I found out after my wedding the lengths the staff went to for my guests - as an example one of the waitresses got some of our canap茅s cooked -
'Well done' for a pregnant guest.

No words can ever thank Hazel Gap Barn enough, what an absolute privilege to have my day amongst a beautiful setting and outstanding staff. I would recommend entirely!

I am so glad we chose Hazel Gap Barn for our venue. I used to drive past it when on courses for work and always loved the look! Finally when we visited we knew we had to book!
It is the most gorgeous venue, set in the most beautiful place. Our day was perfect! The staff have been there throughout the process and have answered questions quickly and helped when guidance was needed.
On the day of wedding the staff were so friendly, warm, welcoming and couldn鈥檛 do enough for myself, my husband and our family and friends.
The food was outstanding! So gorgeous!
All of our guests commented on how beautiful the place was and how the food was the best they had tasted at a wedding.

I would definitely recommend Hazel Gap Barn to anyone looking to get married.

Thank you so much to the team there for making our day perfect 馃巹馃巺馃徑鉂わ笍

Worth the wait

From our very first visit to Hazel Gap Barn almost four years ago now, we have had a perfect experience. Due to get married Christmas 2020, we of course ended up postponing for two years, but managed to bag a closer to summer date at the start of October 2022 (which we're so glad we did as it was lovely being able to use the courtyard in the sunshine). During the pandemic the venue had feast nights which we went to many times being only down the road, almost becoming the 'regulars', which meant we got much closer to the staff who were always so welcoming and helpful. In fact throughout the whole process, whether it was venue visits, zoom calls or chatting through the online message system, the staff were absolutely fantastic. On the day we had Alix and Amanda who were always there when you needed them, keeping you updated with anything important and generally just wanting to help make sure the day went perfectly - which it did. Also would love to shout out Emily, Beth and Jodie who have all at some point really helped make our day as special as it could be. A lot of guests noticed how effortless the day was, whether it was canap茅s, the dinner, first dance... it all flowed nicely. The food as expected was outstanding (100% choose the wood fired pizza for the evening), and guests loved be able to order literally anything from the bar. The venue is beautiful, and it felt cosy with our 100 guests, but equally enough space to party. Speaking of which, we had a guitarist plug into the system which sounded great for our first dance as did the playlist we made for the rest of the night, which went down really well and was great to have exactly the music we wanted and not let a DJ takeover! We had fire pits lit in the evening and the venue recommended marshmallows to toast over them which both the kids and adults loved. I honestly can't fault anything about the venue, they provided us the perfect day, what else could we ask for? Myself and my husband two months on still keep getting flashbacks to so many lovely moments that we'll remember forever. Thank you to everyone at Hazel Gap Barn for making it a reality. 10/10, would highly recommend.

The perfect venue

We had some 'unusual' requests for our wrestling-themed wedding, but nothing was too much trouble for the fantastic staff who helped to make our day absolutely unforgettable. From the very first meeting to dropping off guests after the evening do at 1am, we couldn't have asked for more. Not to mention the incredible food!

The Perfect Wedding Venue

Where to start? There's literally not enough positive words available to explain how good Hazel Gap is. The venue itself is picturesque and full of character, the staff are extremely attentive and selfless, and the food is exceptional.

Hazel Gap was the first venue we visited when we started looking at venues and we immediately fell in love with it, so much so that none of the other venues could compete (even within the Cripps portfolio). We didn't fully appreciate the quality of this venue until we went for one of their feast nights before Christmas, this really was a taster of what to expect in terms of food and service. After booking our date and going to our first planning meeting, we were made to feel like we were the only people getting married at Hazel Gap which made us feel very special. The whole planning process was seamless, the online portal is so easy to use and it ensures nothing gets missed. Most of our suppliers were booked from the recommended list that Hazel Gap provided but where we deviated from this Hazel Gap were incredibly flexible and helpful.

Our wedding day went as smooth as possible and even if there had have been issues, we wouldn't have known as everyone at Hazel Gap make sure that the Bride and Groom have the best day of their lives. From the minute I arrived to deliver the cake, Beth was on hand to help me and fill me with confidence at how nice the venue looked with our chosen decorations. She also went out of her way to make sure the cake survived the heat (we got married the day after the hottest day on record). Throughout the day Beth and the rest of the staff were incredibly attentive, not one person had an empty glass at any point and without them, our day would not have been perfect. This also continued through the night when Chris took over. He made sure that the band were welcomed and shown around, that the cake was moved with no issues and that everyone went away full of pizza and cake. There's lots of formalities at weddings and certain things have to happen at certain times but what was great about Hazel Gap is that it is done in such a relaxed and subtle manner which adds to the atmosphere and enjoyment of everyone.

The real test of a venue is not just how the bride and groom are made to feel, it's also about how special the guests feel. Every single one of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was inside and out, how it was some of the best food they have ever had and how helpful all of the staff were throughout the entire day. They made sure that two of our guests got some 'well done' steak and plated up some food for another couple who had to dash away from the venue for a few hours, something they didn't really need to do.

If you are looking for the most beautiful wedding venue then this is it. If you want to make sure your day goes as smooth as possible then it needs to be here and if you want to ensure that your perfect day is actually perfect then you need to book Hazel Gap.

Beth, Chris and everyone else at Hazel Gap, thank you so much for making our day perfect.

A huge thank you to all the Hazel Gap barn staff! Professional throughout, superb organising and the Cordero app was extremely helpful, always rapid responses. I loved that I could relax knowing the day was being looked after by the day and evening managers who were lovely. The food was the best! Everybody enjoyed the food and commented how generous the servings were. The day absolutely flew by, I just wish I could do it all again. Thank you all wholeheartedly! Much love, Peter and Holly 01.07.22

Perfect venue, perfect day

Hazel Gap helped us plan our perfect wedding. The venue was exquisite, all our guests commented on how every part of it was beautiful. They were very attentive via the Cordero messaging (particularly leading up to the wedding with last minute stresses) and got back to us usually within a few hours. During the wedding, they helped us feel relaxed and organised the day for us so we didn鈥檛 have to worry. In particular, Jodie helped make our day so perfect. The food was delicious and we had great wine (which wasn鈥檛 all drank so they refunded us for it- very much appreciated!) The indoor and outdoor package available is well worth the money, it helped set the ambiance- particularly for the night and just illuminated the already beautiful venue and showed off its excellence. Hazel Gap allowed us to choose and change all aspects of the day so it was exactly how we wanted, being perf os alises to us (our ski theme) and guided us where we needed it. We cannot thank them enough for allowing us to celebrate our special, unforgettable day there, it was truly magical. If only we could do it all again, we鈥檇 choose to get married at Hazel Gap Barn again in a heart beat.

Hazel Gap Barn exceeded our expectations (twice)! The venue鈥檚 beauty speaks for itself, and the team鈥檚 organisation, attention to detail and execution on the day were outstanding. On both occasions, our wedding was perfect! Would highly recommend.
