About Healey Barn

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

Healey Barn is proud to have been voted the UK's Best New Venue 2016 in the Awards run by Hitched, Perfect Wedding and You & Your Wedding.

Healey is near Corbridge in the Tyne Valley, set in the most peaceful countryside, with beautiful, open views to the south, yet under 20 miles from the centre of Newcastle.  The buildings were converted by the Cripps Barn team from a fine set of traditional barns in 2015.  We wanted to create a really enchanting wedding venue, comfortable to use, open to the outside in summer, and snug and warm in winter, and we wanted to retain the feel of the original buidings and their history.  We hope we've succeeded.  

The Long Barn is the most romantic place we know for a Ceremony, full of candles (over 100), with the most amazing oak roof which supports a huge canopy of fairy lights (you can't have too many!), and headed by a massive stone fireplace.   Like the other rooms, it's underfloor-heated and warm whatever the Northumbrian weather does.  The Long Barn is also used for the drinks reception, and later as the dance floor.

Leading off the Long Barn, there is an oak-roofed Dining Room.  On one side there are windows looking over the Northumbrian countryside. On the other side there's a full glass wall with three sets of double doors which bring the Courtyard into the Dining Room, as it were, adding, according to the season, sunlight, summer breezes, and enticing views of plants, flowers, spectacular BBQ's, firepits, lanterns and fairy lights.  The Oak Room is designed to feel spacious and luxurious.

The Courtyard is sheltered on all sides and perfect for post-ceremony drinks on a mild day, and great for wedding photos.  At night it's quite magical with fairy-lit trees, firepits and lanterns.

Completing the package is Healey's inimitable food. We like to make our food dramatic as well as delicious, with giant rotisseries and BBQ's. Our formula is "Buy the best, cook it simply, serve it generously".

What a venue
Venue Service

By Duncan & Jo, on 18 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Jun 2018

We held our wedding at Healey barn in June 2018. The staff were so good setting out the tables and our decorations on the morning of the wedding taking all the stress away. The venue itself is perfect, plenty of dancing and dining space. The food was amazing aswell, the amount of times I got told the roast potatoes were the best ever I have lost count. Everything about the barn was perfect thanks so much to everyone.

Venue to remember
Venue Service

By Duncan & Jo, on 17 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Jun 2018

My wife and I chose Healey barn for our wedding venue and what an inspired choice it turned out to be. The whole day was run superbly by all the staff, they were so helpful with setting up and laying out the venue. They venue is so beautiful in amazing quiet surroundings. There is nothing to fault about the venue at all, the food was amazing with people mentioning how the roast potatoes were the best they ever had. There is plenty room we even managed to have a ceilidh with most of the 100guests involved. We even had other couples getting married this year tell us they wished they had found our venue for their big day. Thanks so much to everyone

Wonderful wedding at Healey Barn
Venue Service

By H & U, on 17 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018

We had a fantastic wedding at Healey Barn. The Vegetarian Feast (prepared by Andy and team) was amazing, and the wood-fired pizzas absolutely delicious. They catered to nut allergies and vegans very carefully. The location and the buildings are a dream and make an ideal setting for a wedding (and wedding photos!) The staff was friendly and Fran made sure everything was running smoothly. The only downsides were that while their PA system is good enough for music during the ceremony, the speakers break up (due to interference from people dancing) if you try to use it for a dance party. While the staff warned us of this in advance, we would expect a proper sound system in such a venue. Also, the fact that there are so many weddings does reduce flexibility a bit (given a 30 minute window to pick up belongings the next day etc.). Overall, an excellent venue which we would definitely recommend!

Not only did we think that Healey Barn was the perfect venue, all of our guests commented on what a wonderful venue it was. The staff were faultless, and went above and beyond to make us feel completely relaxed so we could just enjoy the day.

The Most Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Sarah Wareham, on 16 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2018

I dont think I could thank the staff at Healey Barn enough for all the hard work they put in to making our wedding day perfect. We were looked after all day by Leanne and Charlotte and then Jack looked after us in the evening. I was insanely nervous and they made sure I had water to sip and kept me calm. My husband went early in the morning to set up and he said everyone was very helpful so that he could finish quickly. The food is simply incredible. They hold taster evenings at different times in the year and I highly recommend attending one. If the beauty of the venue and the friendly nature of the staff doesnt make you want to book, their food certainly will. I didnt have to think about the running of the day at all. We were able to fully enjoy our day with each other and our families thanks to the all of the staff. From day one, nothing was too much trouble and were always very quick to answer any queries we had (and we were pretty clueless... so there was ALOT of queries). Thank you all very much, Love from The Warehams

Just Perfect
Venue Service

By Katie and Steven, on 28 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2018

From the moment we walked into Healey Barn 2 years ago we knew it would be where we would get married. It is just magical! The staff are all wonderful and were in regular contact throughout the planning process. We used the DJ the barn recommended (AMDJ) and Ruby Tuesday Events who Healey also recommended. Both were incredible and I would also highly recommend both of them. The day itself was perfect. It went without a hitch and that was down to Leanne and the staff at the barn. We cannot thank them enough! They even ordered in beautiful weather for the day!! We had the best day of our lives.

Amazing wedding in such a Phenomenal venue
Venue Service

By Scott & Tammy Dobinson, on 28 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Feb 2018

Where do I begin with Healey Barn.. The Venue itself speaks volumes its outstanding, the more you go the more you notice. Leanne and the team have been amazing, we booked over 18 months ago and feel like we have been dealing with Friends and Family in the barn oppose to being customers. The planning prior is effortless, you sit down, discuss your day one to one. We had Charlotte, which is a wedding fanatic, which really helped us add bits, move things around and plan our day better. Some venues I have heard horror stories about them being like production lines of brides and grooms, Healey Barn is the polar opposite to that, yes, they are getting busier, but they have not lost their personal touch feeling, We were always greeted by name when visiting on open days etc. The big day itself, wow simply unreal, better then me or my now wife could have ever imagined, we were gifted with amazing sunny weather in the middle of Feb and it just set the mood for the day. Everything ran to time, even with a few sneaky photos to capture the amazing sunset. The food was phenomenal, we had so many compliments on the day from guests, even a week later we are still getting comments on how good the food is at Healey Barn – I cannot stress enough how good our wedding breakfast was! Overall Healey Barn is phenomenal, it’s a very unique and beautiful place, which is ran by very caring, dedicated and genuine people If you are looking at this venue, then don’t hesitate, go and visit the team and have a look for yourself it is truly a special place to create so many wonderful and lifelong memories in.

Leanne Cheek, Barn Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 09/03/2018 13:50:21

Hi Scott and Tammy. Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to post this review. We are delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful day; it was a pleasure to be a part of it and we are so happy that you had such lovely weather for your photos too! We wish you both all the very best in your future as Mr and Mrs Dobinson. Best Wishes, Leanne and the Healey Barn Team.

Healey Barn Winter Wedding
Venue Service

By Lindsey & Jason Parker, on 17 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Dec 2017

From the moment we first met the team at Healey to saying goodnight to them on our wedding day they couldn't have looked after or guided us any better than they did. The whole planning process is so well managed by them it really keeps things on track. On the day itself we were both looked after so well from our arrival, guiding us through what would happen, straightening my dress before I entered the Long Barn, waiting for us after the ceremony with canapés & drinks, an amazing meal to Charlotte checking in with me on a regular basis to make sure I was happy with everything. The venue is in a stunning location and meticulously maintained. The choice of menu options is fantastic. The food on the day was outstanding. Everything about this venue is perfect including the staff who really know how to help you create a wonderful & relaxed day.

The Storey Wedding
Venue Service

By Karen Storey, on 10 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Dec 2017

Healey Barn is the perfect venue for a wedding. The staff were amazing from day one and couldn’t have been more accommodating. The food was fantastic and there is nothing I would change about our perfect day

Perfect wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Claire and Tom, on 08 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

Thank you to the whole team at Healey Barn for helping us have a perfect day! The whole place looked beautiful and multiple guests have commented on how fantastic the venue was and the how lovely and helpful the staff were. Charlotte was particularly reassuring and helpful throughout. We loved how relaxed the atmosphere was - even from the first visit. We've also had fantastic comments about the food, lots of people have said it was the best wedding food/large group catering they'd ever had. It was absolutely delicious and we're just sad we can't have it all over again!

What a wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Jackson, on 23 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Aug 2017

If you haven't picked your wedding venue yet and you want something that is unique and different then this place is for you! We got married here on the 16th of August 2017 and we had 50 daytime and 100 nighttime guests. From the very start, the team at Healey Barn were very professional and offered a service that went above and beyond expectations. I have worked in the wedding industry before and know that some venues can make you feel like your on a production line but the staff at Healey Barn really go out of their way to make you feel that your day is the most important. They have an online system that makes contact easy and nothing was a bother to the team. Our guests have talked about how beautiful the place is and our wedding pictures reflect this. Everyone fell in love with this venue and it is easy to see why. The food is served generously and the roast potatoes were the best I have ever tasted!! We had the ham and cheese buffet and it was all gone, which was a pleasure to see. Thank you thank you thank you!! Leanne and her team at Healey Barn really are the best in the business and if you have booked your wedding here, you are in safe hands. Thank you, Mr and Mrs Jackson xxx

'Relax, we've got this.'
Venue Service

By The happy couple, on 28 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2017

From our first viewing and meeting the team we knew Healey Barn was the only place to hold our wedding. The venue is set among beautiful countryside and forests and is an amazing backdrop for a memorable day. The staff are first class: so helpful and their experience was invaluable. Hearing 'Go and relax, we've got this' put a very nervous groom's mind at ease when trying to arrange things on the morning! Nothing was too much trouble for them; from last minute requests to view the table layout on a random weekend to checking the sound system a week before the wedding. The food was amazing and our guests haven't stopped talking about the courtesy and friendliness of the staff and how relaxed atmosphere.
