About Hazel Gap Barn

Budby Road, Budby, Edwinstowe
Nottinghamshire, NG22 9EY

Flanked by two unusual watch towers which create a dramatic entrance for guests, this beautiful red brick wedding barn is set on the Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire. The barn was transformed by Cripps & Co, a family-run business with more than 25 years experience restoring barns and creating weddings.

With its traditional oak timber and elegant arches, the main barn is the ideal location for a wedding ceremony. A large fireplace, fairy lights and giant candelabra bathe the space in light and create a romantic atmosphere. The room is transformed and decorated for dancing after dinner, with a special late license until 1 am. The barn can accommodate 150 guests for a ceremony and 250 in total, including evening guests.

Our light-filled Oak Room has views over the gardens and woodland on one side and a bar that spills out onto the courtyard. Here, guests can feast in style. Our in-house chefs flame-grill food over a giant BBQ and rotisserie. We buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously. The Oak Room accommodates 150 seated guests.

Surrounded by the barn buildings, the Hazel Gap courtyard is sheltered and peaceful, with a fountain, mulberry trees, seating and planters. At night the courtyard is lit up with fairy lights, fire pits and lanterns.

Our on-site Hazel Gap team provides an exceptional service, helping with everything from the big ideas to the last minute details.

    The Perfect Wedding!
    Venue Service

    By Kimberley Woodcock, on 13 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2018

    The first day we walked into Hazel Gap Barn we fell in love straight away! We loved how we could personalise everything to how we wanted it and not to a standardised wedding package. We got married at Hazel Gap Barn on 11th November and it was the most perfect day. More perfect than we could ever imagine! The venue is stunning in itself but the staff here really do make it a whole package! Nothing was too much and you can tell every person we came into contact with is passionate about their job and making our day perfect for us. We cannot thank you enough! I have no doubt anyone else looking to get married here will be disappointed, it is perfect! We cannot wait to return to Hazel Gap Barn to try one of your feast nights! All our love Mr and Mrs Woodcock

    Perfect Venue for our Perfect Wedding

    By Miriam & Russell Sanchez, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2018

    When we came across Hazel Gap Barn on this website last year, my (now!) hubby & I knew it ticked all the right boxes for us. We eventually viewed the venue late October and signed on the dotted line then & there for our November wedding! From start to finish the team were amazing - always on top of their communication, always helpful and nothing was too much trouble. On the day of our wedding, Emily and Penny our managers, were incredibly well organised and kept us abreast of what was happening at all times. We felt in such good hands - they were so kind and looked genuinely happy to be looking after us. We've since had SO many compliments from our guests on the food (especially!), the venue itself, the service- just about anything really! It was simply wonderful and wish we could do it all over again. We'd recommend Hazel Gap Barn (or any Cripps barn venue for that matter) in a heartbeat. If you're looking for a venue with charm, class and exceptional standards but not stuffy/uppety, then this is for you.

Wishing you all the best for your future.

    Simply Stunning

    By Kerry and Mike, on 20 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

    We had our wedding here on the 8th September 2018. We held both the ceremony and reception here and cannot speak highly enough of Hazel Gap and the staff! We initially viewed Hazel Gap when it was still being built and even at that point we were filled with confidence about how they could bring our day to life! Beth was brill answering all our questions before the day and Alex was INCREDIBLE helping us both at our planning meeting, on the day itself and clearing away the day after! I was really nervous but she put us completely at ease throughout and went above and beyond to make our day special!! The venue looked absolutely beautiful - and even though it rained on the day it just made the atmosphere cosier because you could see the weather through all the windows and with all the candles on it felt like the perfect autumnal day! The extra touches such as the fire pits and toasting marshmallows in the evening were great and the opportunity for guests to spend time either on the Dance floor or in the bar was great where there was a relaxed but fun feel! Last but not least THE FOOD.... our guests have said it is THE best wedding food they have ever had!!!!! Everything was perfectly cooked and of ample quantity. I haven't seen such excited faces at a wedding like when THAT treacle sponge arrived at the tables. For vegans and vegetarians there was really great alternatives available which was great too! Just an amazing day - thank you!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us, we all wish you both lots of love and happiness for the future!

    By Nick & Sophie, on 20 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2018

    We arrived after a chuch service and the place looked stunning. We had dropped off loads of stuff in the morning and they had sorted it all for us. Given we arent the most organised of couples they have helped us all the way through the planning and made life alot easier! On the day the Beth, Alex and the rest of the staff were really friendly and super efficient. The food was to die for and everything went to plan. Couldn't be happier we chose Hazel Gap for our big day.

    The most amazing day
    Venue Service

    By Clare and Steph Burnham, on 16 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2018

    We were married here on the 8th August 2018. We had the most incredible day with everything we could have wished for and more. Not only is it a superb and beautiful venue, but the staff at Hazel Gap are fantastic. We did all of our planning with Beth who made the process enjoyable and easy, Beth showed us the venue whilst it was still being built to viewing the finished product!! Our Wedding Day finally arrived and we met with our day manager Emily. From the second we met that morning, she was an absolute diamond. Nothing was too much trouble and she was very calm and professional. She even took the time to settle one of the brides and the mother of the other bride!! ?? She guided us throughout the entire day which was seamless and perfect. A big thank you to Emily for our day. Also thank you to all the other staff on that day who were all smiley and friendly. The food at Hazel Gap was amazing, we opted for the Goats cheese and beetroot salad starter, the mixed grill from the BBQ with roast potatoes and veg and then Creme Brûlée for dessert. Our guests were blown away with the quality of the food and the amount provided, as were we. So compliments to the chef. All in all, we had the most spectacular day and this is all thanks to Hazel Gap Barn. Our photographs are proof of what a brilliant day we had in this amazing venue. Anyone getting married would be crazy to look else where. Love Mrs and Mrs Burnham Est 08/08/18 Hazel Gap Barn

    An absolutely amazing venue
    Venue Service

    By Alex and Becky, on 13 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

    From the moment we first visited the barn we knew it was the place for us to get married. The ceremony room was such a wonderful space and we knew it would feel really special to get married there, the rest of the venue just added to that. The staff were great throughout the planning process, really quick to respond to any questions and very helpful. On the day itself Beth in particular was great, even putting the button holes on all the guys and ensuring everything ran smoothly. The ceremony was wonderful, in such an atmospheric setting. After that we were taken in the back room for a drink and some canapés and it was lovely to have a few minutes to ourselves. The rest of the day couldn’t have been more perfect. The food and drink were outstanding and the venue really is so lovely - we had so many people comment on the venue and the food, for many the best they had had at a wedding. We would definitely recommend Hazel Gap! Thank you!

    Every little thing about this place is simply perfect! The venue has been lovingly restored and gives the most beautiful setting, the food outstrips most restaurants never mind other wedding venues, the staff and particularly our planners Beth and Emily were amazing and nothing was too much effort. We had the greatest and most perfect day, wish we could do it again!!

    What an AMAZING Day
    Venue Service

    By Richard and Donna Pooley, on 17 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

    Hazel Gap Barn was the first venue we viewed and from the moment we walked in we were made to feel special. Beth, Alix, Charlie and Lewis made certain the whole process from initial planning through to our wedding day was such an enjoyable and hugely memorable experience. Their attention to detail, helpfulness and dedication ensured our wedding day was not only special but everything we had dreamed of. The fantastic weather on our wedding day only enhanced what a stunning venue Hazel Gap Barn is. The beautiful scenery inside and out helped create sensational photographs and allowed our guests to thoroughly enjoy the day equally as much as ourselves. So many of our guests have commented on how stunning the venue is 'wow, what an amazing venue!', the quality of the food 'the best steak we have ever eaten' and what a great time they had 'the best wedding we have ever been too'. We highly recommend Hazel Gap Barn, it really is PERFECT, and indeed very much look forward to being invited back as guests at a friend’s wedding, so we can experience the venue (and food!) again! Thank you, Hazel Gap, you are AMAZING!!

    By Olivia & James Mountjoy, on 30 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Apr 2018

    Myself and my husband went to look at hazel gap barn as a last minute viewing after looking at one other place. As soon as we got there we were greeted by Beth, who gave us a lovely warm welcome and we knew straight away that this was where we wanted to get married. Everything about this venue is honestly amazing, it’s so beautiful. The staff- what can I say, everyone was AMAZING all the contact with Beth, Alix and Lewis beforehand was amazing and they were so responsive to every question I had no matter how ridiculous my question was! On the day the staff were incredible, everything went so well!! All our guests commented on how lovely all the staff were. The food was absolutely delicious, again all the guests commented on how delicious it was and how much there was!! Some little touches that were really nice were after we got married we went into the bridal room at the back and were greeted with a drink and a selection of canapés and we were left together for a bit to have some time on our own, this was really lovely! We didn’t have very good weather on the day (typical England) but it really doesn’t matter at this venue is so amazing it was stil beautiful being inside, there are also some sheltered spots outside to get some good photos. Thank you to everyone at hazel gap barn, particularly Beth, Alix and Lewis. We wish we could do it all over again, you gave us the best day of our lives Mr & Mrs Mountjoy xx

    Amazing wedding at Hazel Gap
    Venue Service

    By Kerry and Geraint Jones, on 15 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Apr 2018

    Hazel Gap is just breath taking. The venue is absolutely stunning. We were married there on Wednesday 11th April and it was beyond amazing. The staff, food and ambience are wonderful and everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was. Nothing is too much trouble for members of the Hazel Gap team. Beth and Alix, the wedding coordinators, are gorgeous people inside and out and make you feel like you’re the only bride on the world. Emily, Ashleigh and Mick go above and beyond their call of duty too to make you feel welcome and let you know you’re in exceptionally safe hands. Hazel Gap has, most certainly, perfected the art of weddings. We would recommend the venue to anyone thinking about getting married. Truly fantastic, professional and friendly venue. Love these guys. Thank you so much for everything you did for Geraint and I. Five stars all the way! Xxx

    By Helen & John Marshall, on 06 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

    We got married here on 14/10/17. It was the perfect day. Everything from the organisation, to the food, to the switch over of staff was absolutely perfect. Before the day the staff answer any questions you have through the Cripps online portal, which is incredibly handy as everything is there and nothing gets lost in translation. You can see everything that you're spending money on and the staff can't help enough. We were lucky enough to be able to set up the day before the wedding as no one had booked theirs. All the staff we on hand to help, they even made us coffee whilst we set up. Things we didn't want revealing until the evening were taken care of and I felt totally at ease leaving - which for a bride is #1! On the big day Beth was so helpful. She talked my husband & I prior to the ceremony. She got me into the bridal room and helped to organise everyone walking down the aisle. She was waiting with drinks for us after the ceremony and just helped everything run smoothly. The venue itself is just incredible. Everywhere is picture perfect; the bar is very reasonably priced; the courtyard is perfect for everyone to gather and the back is amazing for photos with all the trees behind the venue. You feel truly like it's just your place. The best part of the day was the food! Everyone said it's the best wedding meal they have ever had - we had the mixed grill & I couldn't recommend it enough! We also had the cheese buffet for the evening and all the guests loved it. The only problem is that we have no excuse to go back!

    Beth, Front of House Manager at Hazel Gap Barn responded to this review on 09/03/2018 11:55:16

    Thank you so much for your kind review, we're so glad you had the most perfect wedding day here. Hopefully you'll be back some day soon as a wedding guest so you can experience the food again! Congratulations again Helen and John, we hope we see you again soon!

    By Pete stewart, on 26 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

    Attended a family wedding here on 23 September and the whole experience was "perfect " The location ,staff ,food ,facilities and general ambience of this venue is outstanding !! I like the fact that there are several spaces indoor and out where you can talk to guests and not be straining to hear the conversation . The wedding meal was the best I've ever had at any function . The band were superb and the indoor space allocated for dancing is just right . The staff are attentive without being overbearing . The only niggle we had was that they were so keen to keep the place tidy and looking good that within seconds of putting a drink down they spirited it away for washing up !!! This minor blip did not spoil the day --- a memorable experience in a beautiful setting . Don't hesitate to book if you are planning a function -it will add a touch of "class" to your day.

    Beth, Front of House Manager at Hazel Gap Barn responded to this review on 09/03/2018 11:48:08

    Hi Pete, Thank you for your kind review, we're so glad you enjoyed Kate and Ed's wedding day!
