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".

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.

A wedding venue like no other!
Venue Service

By Jennifer & Steven, on 12 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2017

This venue was perfect for our intimate wedding of 50 guests and 100 evening guests. Leanne and her team were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help us on what could have been a stressful day. Healey Barn looked magical with fairy lights, candles and fire pits. We only added a few personal touches as the venue itself looks amazing. The food was out of this world and we really hope to go back for a taster night!! All of our guests have said how unique the venue was and how they had never experienced a wedding that gets everything just right. We've all got the wedding blues and wish we could do it all over again!!! Anyone reading don't hesitate this is the best wedding venue by far!! Thanks again Leanne and team you were amazing (even getting me thread for my dress!) Jennifer and Steven-Mr and Mrs Hardy xx

Wedding 30th July - Everett
Venue Service

By Richard and Megan Everett, on 03 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2017

Myself and my wife Megan had an amazing time at our wedding at Healey Barn. The quality of service, helpfulness and attention to detail was first class from start to finish. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating of all of our special requests and made sure the day ran really smoothly. The food was amazing, we had the sirloin steak bricks and lemon tart for dessert. All of our guests commented on how delicious it was. We do not have a negative word to say about the venue and would highly recommend Healey Barn to future couples. Thank you so much for making our special day so perfect.

Not a cloud in the sky
Venue Service

By Nigel McQuoid, on 01 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Jul 2017

As father of the bride, combined with my rampant OCD, I must have been a demanding client for Healey Barn. However, such is the manner and professionalism of the team at HB, I felt there was nothing that was too much bother for them. They were flexible, responsive, relaxed and precise, and this meant that our day went off without a hiccough. The weather was not good in the morning but the sun came out in the evening, providing a fitting backdrop for the pictures which were taken in the Barns and grounds. We had a Religious Ceremony followed by a brief Civil Ceremony, Breakfast and Evening Ceilidh, all of which were smoothly co-ordinated by Leanne and her colleagues. The food was abundant and beautifully straightforward and our guests enjoyed the informality of self-serve. I cannot recommend HB more highly for, even if the weather is unkind, they made our day 'cloudless'.

Dream wedding
Venue Service

By Rachael and Rhoy, on 11 May 2017Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017

We got married at Healey Barn on 6 May 2017 and it was wonderful. We wanted a relaxed and informal barn wedding and Healey could not have been more perfect. We cannot recommend it enough! The staff were brilliant, from our first viewing in November 2015, right up to our wedding day last week. Nothing was too much trouble, and they were always on hand to answer any queries we had. We knew from the outset that we were in safe hands, and that was clear on the day itself - the staff helped calm us (a very nervous bride and groom!) down and the day went without a hitch. We have had so many compliments from guests already about the venue, the staff and the food...! The food was AMAZING! If you are looking for a wedding venue in the North East, you must, must, must, visit Healey!

Fantastic venue
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Smith, on 02 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Oct 2016

If there was a 10 i would put this instead, I can recommend this venue to any couple who wants to get married in a rural setting, the surroundings are beautiful, but once you get inside it is stunning. The staff are friendly and helpful and are happy to accommodate your requests. Some of the other venues we went to were very restrictive, and everything with the staff at Healey Barn was so easy. They helped to make the day memorable and less stressful. The food is also 10 out of 10 and all of my guest thoroughly enjoyed it.

Perfect Venue
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Honeyman, on 25 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 20 Aug 2016

Our wedding at Healey Barn was perfect. From the very start of the booking process to the wedding day itself, all of the staff have been amazing and so helpful. It absolutely poured it down on the day so Fran made sure out guests were still able to throw confetti inside which was lovely. The food was fantastic, receiving so many compliments. The venue itself is beautiful and even though it was raining, there were still lovely places around the barn to take photos. This is a stunning venue and the perfect place to host your wedding.
