About Healey Barn

Riding Mill, Corbridge
Nr. Hexham, Newcastle
Northumberland, NE44 6BN

Healey Barn now has luxurious accommodation for up to 34 guests in the recently renovated Healey Hall.

Located in the tranquil countryside near Corbridge in the Tyne Valley, Healey Barn offers beautiful, open views south across the surrounding landscape. Yet despite its rural location, the barn is less than 20 miles from the center of Newcastle.

The Healey Barn buildings were converted by Cripps & Co in 2015 to create a luxury wedding venue. Retaining the charm and history of the original building, the barn works as well in the summer, with doors opening out onto a sunny courtyard, as it does in winter, with a large stone fireplace and underfloor heating.

Lit by over 100 flickering candles and the canopy of fairy lights woven into its oak ceiling, the Long Barn is the ideal setting for a ceremony. The barn can be transformed into a drinks reception and dance floor after the ceremony. Underfloor heating and a roaring fire at one end means the barn is comfortable all year round. The Long Barn can accommodate 140 guests for a ceremony and up to 200 evening guests for drinks and dancing.

With sweeping views over the Northumbrian landscape on one side and out into the courtyard, with its glow of twinkling lights, fire pits and lanterns, on the other, the Oak Room can accommodate 140 guests seated to dine.

Sheltered from the wind by barn buildings on all sides, our sun-filled courtyard provides a large additional space for post-ceremony drinks and an excellent location for wedding photographs. The courtyard is transformed at night with lanterns, fire pits, and fairy-lit trees.

Our wedding feasts receive as many compliments as the barn itself. We buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously. Food is flame-cooked from fresh ingredients on a huge BBQ and French rotisseries in full view of our guests. Menus are designed collaboratively with our in-house chefs.

The wedding team at Healey Barn are on hand to help organise everything from the big ideas to the last minute details.

  • Candlelit stone barn with oak dining room

  • Countryside setting with sweeping views

  • Giant BBQ, rotisseries and Gozney pizza oven for flame-cooked feasts

  • Capacity - 140 for ceremony and dining, 200 total (including evening guests)

  • Exceptional service from on-site team

  • Late license until 1 am

• ACCOMMODATION FOR UP TO 34 GUESTS IN THE LUXURIOUS HEALEY HALL • STUNNING VIEWS AND COUNTRY SETTING • BBQ, ROTISSERIE AND FEAST MENUS, AS WELL AS OUR OWN GOZNEY PIZZA OVEN! • RENOVATED STONE BARN WITH OAK DINING ROOM • ROMANTIC, CANDLE-LIT BARN

Many thanks from Pedro and Shirley
Venue Service

By Shirley & Pedro, on 06 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2019

We can't praise Healey Barn enough. We fell in love with this place the moment we set foot there. Everything is impeccable, from the service and staff, the surroundings to the food and wine selection. The staff was extremely helpful from the beginning and throughout the entire planning and during the wedding day itself. They were always available to answer any questions and were also very flexible to accommodate any requirements we had. The venue is so charming and unique that it barely needs any extra decorations. If you're thinking about getting married and are unsure about the venue, PLEASE visit Healey Barn.

Leanne Luke, Barn Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 07/10/2019 16:10:09

Hi Pedro and Shirley. What an amazing review, thank you so much. We are absolutely thrilled that you had such a wonderful time, and it's so lovely to hear how you fell in love with the venue right from the start. It was our pleasure to have you with us at Healey Barn, and we are so glad that you have such fond memories of the venue, food, wine and staff. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together. Congratulations, once again, from us all at Healey Barn

Perfection
Venue Service

By Andy and Andrew, on 11 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2019

From the moment we walked in, we both knew this was our venue. We were already excited driving up to the barn because the surroundings are stunning. Then you go inside and WOW! It’s absolutely beautiful. It’s done to such a high standard - a perfect blend of rustic and elegant. But they don’t just rely on the aesthetic. The staff are incredible. Every single person is helpful, professional and incredibly friendly. It really makes the experience. Massive shout out to Jack (our front of house on the day) who was beyond brilliant. I’m a bit of a control freak but I was completely relaxed knowing he had everything in hand. He made our day so special and is just an absolute star! We must also thank Charlotte for answering all our questions on the open day and at the feast night (not to mention her napkin folding skills, ha). To top it all off the food was incredible. So many people told us that they were the best canapés they’d ever had (the beef sirloin is a must) and that it was the best meal too. I think it’s fair to say that every single person at our wedding was blown away by Healey Barn as much as we were.

Leanne Luke, Barn Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 07/10/2019 15:59:28

Hi Andy and Andrew, Thank you so much for leaving us such a lovely review, we have passed on your kind comments to the team, in particular Jack. Charlotte is thrilled to hear you were impressed with her napkin folding skills! We are so pleased that your guests enjoyed our food, we will certainly let our chef know you both enjoyed it too - you are always welcome to come back to a Feast Night to enjoy the food again! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness together. All the very best from everyone at Healey Barn.

Beautiful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Sarah & Ollie, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2019

Healey Barn is a stunning venue set in beautiful countryside. When we were first looking at wedding venues it was the stand out from online searches, the pictures speak for themselves but seeing it in person was even better. It’s absolutely stunning. Once booked, the whole process was an absolute breeze from start to finish, the team are so friendly and helpful that we never had any stress at any point. There are cheaper venues but for everything you get here it’s well worth it. When it came to our actual wedding day, Charlotte, Doug and the whole team were great and made sure we didn’t have to worry about anything. The food was amazing and the portions were properly generous, and there were a lot of compliments about it. The licence is until 1am too which seemed a bit later than other places. Highly recommended.

Jack Rasor, Bar Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 05/09/2019 12:29:02

Hi Sarah & Ollie, Firstly thank you so much of your kind words - the whole team here at Healey Barn are pleased you and your guests had such a wonderful day!

Our wedding day 29.07.2019
Venue Service

By Louise & Richard Davies, on 08 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2019

We were so blown away by the beautiful barn and the amazing surroundings we didn't even view anywhere else. It was perfect for the rustic theme we wanted. I can't speak more highly of the staff. They communicated through a message system which works brilliantly. The responses are immediate and we felt like special guests! We loved visiting the barn to show our friends and family and they are very accommodating. Our planning meeting was perfect and communications leading up to the day made me feel at ease. They were flexible with our choices and amazing when it came to specific dietary requirements. The evening before I received a call from our planner Jack in which we ran through the day putting my mind at ease. On the day I arrived and was met by Jack he was kind and really supportive. I am an anxious person and worried about how I would cope but I can't explain how much I loved and enjoyed every minute of our day. From walking down the aisle in the beautiful barn with the gorgeous fireplace to the lovely reception room which was even better than I had hoped. The added bonus is the courtyard we were so lucky the sun shone down on us and the guests made the most of the outside area. The firepits were brilliant with marshmallows and sparklers during the evening. We had a brilliant disco and we danced the whole night. The food was out of this world. Amazing afternoon tea and the evening choices were delicious. We can't stop looking at our photographs they are so perfect in the barn and outside with views of Northumberland. We would do it all again and choose Healey Barn every time. Thank you for making our day so special!!

Simply Magical From Start To Finish
Venue Service

By Jonny & Katy Allan, on 02 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2019

My husband and I were married at Healey Barn on Sunday 28th July and could not have asked for a more perfect, magical day :) from the moment I arrived, Jack, our wedding coordinator, was attentive, wonderfully caring and incredibly organised. The whole day went off without a hitch! The food was second to none. We had quite a few 'foodie' guests at our wedding, who kept coming up to us during the meal and saying how unbelievable the food was! To anyone wondering what to go for, I would highly recommend the mixed grill with roast potatoes as well as the creme brûlée. Hands down, the best I've ever had (and I've had quite a few...) The online booking and messaging system that they have in place makes life so much easier when it comes to organising everything, because it just feels like they really know what they're doing. I didn't feel overwhelmed or lost in information at any point which is a huge bonus for any bride and groom. If I could do it all over again at Healey Barn, I would :) the photos we have will last a lifetime and I couldn't be happier with how our wonderful wedding day went! Thank you x

Jack Rasor, Bar Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 08/08/2019 13:00:44

WOW, thank you so much for your kind testimonial! Thank you, so much, Mr and Mrs Allan, for taking the time to write this review. We are so pleased you had a wonderful time with us and everyone enjoyed our delicious food and venue. We will certainly share your comments with the whole team involved. Wishing you both every happiness in your life together as Husband and Wife. Congratulations, once again, from us all at Healey Barn.

By Alex and Chris Shepherd, on 25 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

Where to even start with how amazing this venue this! We booked Healey for our wedding last week back in Nov 2017, after viewing other potential venues none blew us & our families away like this one did. The barn itself is beautiful, the courtyard and surroundings are stunning! Healey Barn uses an online booking system right from the day you book, which makes it really easy to communicate with the venue/ask questions. You can use that as much or as little as you like, we only had the odd reason to use it right up until the last 2-3 months where you start pulling everything together. You also get a planning meeting with one of their team, we loved ours and before we even had a chance to ask any questions they had covered them! The most important part (apart from the marriage of course) FOOD - absolutely amazing! Every single one of our guests loved it, the only downside is that on your wedding day you’re so pumped with adrenaline you aren’t as hungry as you are at other peoples weddings! We had the pizza oven on the evening as well which is a great way to add some theatre and entertain your guests as well as feed them. (They also let any left over be boxed up and taken away - another thing our guests loved because it sorted out their hangovers!) You get offered the chance to go to a feast evening in the run up to your wedding, this is an additional cost but we honestly found it amazing!! There is so much more we could say about Healey Barn but we would never fit it in, the team here are amazing and we had the best most perfect day of our lives!

Amazing food and service
Venue Service

By Mike and Sophie Cooke, on 25 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Jun 2019

Fantastic service and a wonderful wedding day. At no point did we feel like customers or that we were being made to fit what they wanted to provide rather than what was personal to us. On the day when a few things went wrong (from external suppliers we'd booked) the staff went above and beyond to troubleshoot and look after our guests. The food is the reason we chose the venue and it didn't disappoint - we got more comments about the potatoes than the bride! If you are at all unsure about where to book try one of their feast nights and let the food choose for you.

Leanne Luke, Barn Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 26/06/2019 10:22:03

Hi Mike and Sophie, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review! We are thrilled to hear that you had such a wonderful day and enjoyed our food, especially the potatoes! We will be sure to pass your kind words onto Charlotte, Dan and the rest of the team. Congratulations, once again, and we wish you the very best for your future together - from us all at Healey Barn!

By Claire Coxon & Elliott Coxon, on 23 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2019

We had the most amazing wedding at Healey Barn. The staff made sure everything ran smoothly and constantly checked if we were happy. Through the planning process right up until the day we had contestant contact and everything we needed. Charlotte our front of house was fantastic and instantly made me feel at easy as soon as I arrived at the barn. It is a beautiful venue and our wedding was perfect!

Just perfection
Venue Service

By Dan and Jackie Carter, on 01 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2018

My husband and I are still on cloud 9 and cannot get over what a perfect day we had thanks to all at Healey. We stumbled upon an open morning by chance in January and fell in love with the place- it is warm and welcoming with amazing views and everyone I spoke to raved about the food- we booked there and then and never looked back! The whole booking process was easy and broken down so clearly, their online communication system is so efficient and it meant that both my husband and I were in the loop, very handy as he works away! I know a lot of couples worry about "wedding factories" but Healey is not one of those places, they have vast experience which means everything runs so smoothly, I really felt I was in the hands of experts and no task or question was too small or frivolous- they make you feel like the only wedding they host all year! The food is outstanding and the family style serving meant people can choose what they like and have as much or as little as they want, so many guests commented that they hadn't had such good food in a long time- and this was 2 days after Christmas! So many people commented on the beauty of the place and how the informality helps add an atmosphere of ownership- you can leave the barn as it is or really make it or own and represent you as a couple. Perhaps the highest accolade I could tell you is that the best man asked permission for his wedding to be there too- not yet engaged but they must have done something right!! Thanks to all at Healey for our perfect day xxx

By Beth & Jesus Milburn-Galeano, on 02 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2018

What a perfect location for the best day of our life! Our wedding was on 18th November 2018, and we could not have wished for a more amazing day! From booking the wedding all the way to the wedding day itself, we had a great experience with all the staff that helped us along the way! Unfortunately we had to cancel our first wedding date in August, due to unforeseen circumstances with the home office, and we can’t thank all the kind hearted staff at Healey barn enough for all the help that followed! A special thanks goes out to the lovely Charlotte who kept in touch with us during this difficult time and helped us to reorganise our dream day! I would recommend Healey barn to anyone looking for a gorgeous wedding venue! We had so many comments from gusts on the venue and especially the food!! Which was absolutely delicious! I wish we could do our day all over again! Thank you so much again to all at Healey barn! Xxx

Amazing Venue
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Hutchinson, on 04 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Nov 2018

We could not recommend this venue enough!! Right from the start, when we came to visit and book, all the way through to our wedding day, the staff were absolutely brilliant!! They kept us updated and made the whole process as easy and as stress free as possible and on the wedding day they were so attentative and helpful. All of our guests commented on how lovely they were. The venue speaks for itself and is completely beautiful and has a calm and cosy atmosphere and we instantly fell in love with it! The food served on the day was out of this world. We chose the mixed grill for our main course and the cheese board for the dessert. The portion sizes were huge and the quality was outstanding. We had a wedding definitely to remember and it was all down to this amazing place!!

Leanne Luke, Barn Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 05/12/2018 12:07:41

Hi Mr and Mrs Hutchinson, Thank you both so much for your incredibly lovely review! Our staff are delighted to hear you both had such a wonderful day and that you received so many compliments from your guests. Our chef is so happy that you enjoyed his mixed grill and cheese.

Venue Service

By Kathryn and Louis Maggiore, on 20 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2018

We got married here on the 2nd November 2018 and it was the most perfect day. From booking the wedding at the beginning of the year, our experience could not have been better. The staff are fantastic, professional and so helpful throughout the whole process. The venue is just beautiful, and the food is amazing and there is so much of it! So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food. Throughout the whole of our wedding day the staff made it so perfect and without a single hitch. We had the most amazing day at Healey Barn and we would do it all over again im a flash. We would 1000% recommended it!
