The Perfect Wedding Day!
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!

If you’re looking to book here I can’t 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.
'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!
5+ star ❤️
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’t 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 🎄🎅🏽❤️
Worth the wait
The perfect venue
The Perfect Wedding Venue
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.
