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.

We got married at Healey Barn on 20th October, it was truly the best day of our lives. The venue is beautiful, we wanted somewhere with character and charm, we fell in love with it instantly back in 2018. The venue speaks for itself but the staff are just as brilliant as the setting. The atmosphere was so relaxed, all of my guests commented on how comfortable they felt and how amazing the staff were. From booking, all the way through to the wedding day, the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was brilliant, and we have been told so many times since that it was the best food anyone has ever had at a wedding. We are going to go to the next feast night with our family just so we can taste the food again! The only downside is that we can’t do it all again, I honestly can’t stress enough how amazing Healey Barn and the staff were, a truly magical day!Sent on 28/10/2019

Many thanks from Pedro and Shirley
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.Sent on 06/10/2019

Perfect from start to finish
From the minute we walked into Healey Barn we knew we'd found the perfect place for our wedding - even though it was absolutely chucking it down when we looked around!Sent on 16/11/2019
Throughout, Charlotte, Leanne, and the whole team had answers for every question (however specific or strange)... right up to the day before the wedding. The whole process was incredibly smooth and stress-free, nothing like what we'd expected!
Our brief was 'a massive party with a bit of a wedding in the middle' - and Healey Barn delivered.
On the day itself the Charlotte and her team were there for everything - from helping wrangle bands and DJ kit to sorting wonky button-hole flowers, We didn't have to worry about any of the logistics on the day, as the team made sure people were ushered here and there... or at least they made sure the Ushers knew who needed to go where and when! The bar staff were great, too. They kept everyone going until 1am (another bonus is the late licence!).
And, echoing every other review here, the food is second-to-none - if you're even thinking about having your wedding at Healey Barn, go to a Feast Night. We've had non-stop good reviews on the food from our guests... even the picky ones.
One final note is the next day. The last thing you need is to have to get up early, then sort things out at the venue. But the guys tidied everything together and organised everything perfectly, leaving it all in one place to be picked up. A little thing, but something that made the day after that much better.
Overall we couldn't be happier. Not sure if we're ready to do it all again... but if we did, we'd be straight back to Healey Barn!
