About

2022 Wedding Awards Winner
Up to 250 Guests

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 best day ever!

    We got married at Hazel Gap Barn on 30.12.2021 after already postponing from December 2020. The venue were excellent at rescheduling our big day, everything was done with such ease and was totally stress free.

    When originally looking at venues Hazel Gap Barn stood out miles above the rest that we looked at, it’s absolutely beautiful!

    When our big day arrived the whole day ran smoothly Beth, Chris & the team were fantastic! And the food was amazing! We had so many lovely comments from our guests on the venue, staff and food :)

    If you’re thinking of booking Hazel Gap Barn as your wedding venue I would not hesitate, we had the most magical day and we wish we could do it all over again!

    Outstanding

    The team at Hazel Gap are some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

    Navigating planning (and postponing) a wedding during a pandemic was challenging to say the least. The team were always calm, kind, professional and helpful.

    Hazel Gap is a truly stunning venue. Beautifully presented and well maintained.

    The food and wine are next level, not just “for a wedding venue” but for a restaurant too.

    If you’re considering Hazel Gap, please make the trip there to see it in real life and meet the team. It will exceed expectations, I promise.

    Thank you so much to Beth and Chris who made our day run so perfectly and all the staff who helped make our wedding the day of our dreams!

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review and your very kind comments about our team. It was our pleasure to be a part of your special day and we are so pleased that you had a great time with us.

    Wishing you both all the very best

    Exceptional

    We had our dream wedding at Hazel Gap on 26.10.21. From our initial visit to the barn, right through to our wedding day, the whole team have been just perfect. The journey was so smooth and the communication through Cordero was exceptional. No question was too much. All of our guests commented on how stunning the barn was. The food was divine and multiple guests said it was the best wedding meal they have ever eaten! Call us bias, but the atmosphere at Hazel Gap is second to none - it is the most magical venue and there is not one single thing we would have changed. Much love to the Hazel Gap team - you made our dream wedding a reality. Mr & Mrs Bartlett. xx

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Mr and Mrs Bartlett,

    What a lovely review to read! Thank you for taking the time to write to us - your comments are so kind and we are so pleased that you enjoyed the whole journey with us. We will also pass on your comments to the kitchen team - we are pleased to hear your guests enjoyed the food!

    Wishing you all the very best for the future from us all here at Hazel Gap Barn. x

    Way beyond perfect

    We can’t thank Hazel Gap enough for the day they put on for us. Everything was flawless from start to finish and the team went above and beyond to make our day as perfect as everyone deserves their wedding day to be.
    The one standout moment was how they handled a situation for us where our cake person let us down and failed to let us know, only to not turn up on the day. The staff at hazel gap responded to this situation incredibly quickly and efficiently to ensure we didn’t go without a cake on our wedding day by sourcing a few cakes themselves… which were equally as stunning given they turned this around so quickly!
    All the staff at hazel gap contributed amazingly to our day and we honestly can’t say thank you enough for how perfect our day was. A special mention to Felicity who organised the ceremony and the cake replacement and to Tim who made our night time an absolute party, two great people.

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Hi Jordan and Megan, Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are so pleased you had a great day with us and it was our absolute pleasure to ensure you had a very special day. We wish you both all the very best for the future from us all here at Hazel Gap Barn! xx

    Mr & Mrs Parsons

    This venue is beautiful as you can see but the staff are the best so easy to approach while planning and on the day, nothing was too much hassle for them. Everything flowed really well but didn’t feel like you was to a time line, we had a supplier problem they dealt with everything perfect didn’t bother us with anything! Really attentive staff realised we was In a queue for bar didn’t let us wait.

    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.

    Wedding of Our Dreams

    Thank you so much to the team at Hazel Gap Barn. The day ran so smooth and Beth really is an angel! She is worth her weight in good!
    The venue, food, staff and just overall hospitality of the day was 10/10.
    Obviously, we are 1 of the many others that had to postpone but the end result was so worth it! Everyone went that extra mile on the day to cater for our needs! ❤️
