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.

Couldn’t of had a better venue
Our wedding was postponed from 11th Aug 2020 to 25th May 2021 and we couldn’t of went with a better supplier. Emily, Beth and the Hazel Gap Barn team have been absolutely amazing to us, so friendly especially with the worries of wedding having to be postponed, you hear so many horror postponed wedding stories but we have been so well looked after by the team. Not once did they take advantage of our wedding during the pandemic, if anything all they wanted to do was to help us deliver a really wonderful wedding and making it as memorable as they could for us even with the restrictions included of 30 people and COVID rules applied. We had so much fun on our big day, we really enjoyed it, the staff and the service is perfection. This venue was the first place we had chosen, we have been to 2 Cripps & Co venues before for weddings and knew the food was always so good. As soon as I walked into this venue, it was so breath taking the moment we turned the car in, soon as we walked in for the first 30secs, we fell in love as it’s such a beautiful venue and we knew it was the one. We booked it straight away on the same day and knew we didn’t have to look elsewhere. The layout of the venue flows so well, so spacious, the ceremony hall is so peaceful, the courtyard is gorgeous and the back is garden gives you such a magical feeling. On our day, we really enjoyed our food and if you are a fan of dessert, the crumble was the best I have ever eaten! You cannot go wrong, everyone loved it so much, we all had seconds. Thank you so much again to Emily, Beth and HGB team for making us feel so welcomed and for smashing it! We wish you all the very best.Sent on 31/05/2021

Just perfect considering covid!
Originally booked for May 2020 and postponed to September 2020. Throughout the government changes Beth and Emily constantly kept us up to date.Sent on 15/10/2020
We had options of postponing, splitting the day, having the basic ceremony and postponing the evening etc. We were so grateful of this as we know many couples haven’t had any options with other venues!
We swapped the wedding to a day earlier than expected 5 days before the date to allow 30 rather than 15 and all staff were more than happy to accommodate us! Tim the bar manager is lovely! So friendly and welcoming making sure everyone is happy and comfortable.
All our guests complimented how beautiful the food was as well as the barn itself.
The venue hire and candle package is a little pricey but you can’t have a wedding without the candles!! If you want a beautiful setting and venue unfortunately you pay for it. Saying that, the food prices and drinks are around average for a wedding, however, have gone up since our 2018 prices as expected.
Either way, if you can afford this venue, go for it! You won’t be disappointed at all.
Thanks again to everyone at Hazel Gap, we can’t thank you enough!

Really got to give it them, they were brilliant throughout from initial booking to final message post wedding. Very helpful in answering questions posed and supporting in basically all aspects.
Special mention to Alex on the day for wrangling the buttonholes of many of my Groomsmen including myself. Tim also provided grand support on the evening by keeping things in check.
Do yourself a favour, have your wedding here.
Hazel Gap Barn's reply:Hi Alex and Michelle, many thanks for your review, we are so pleased that you all had a wonderful day with us. We shall pass your special thanks onto both Alix and Tim who were running your day. Thank you for taking the time to write to us and we wish you both all the very best.
