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 & Co 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".

Best day ever
Venue Service

By Alex habin and Ian black, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2018

We were originally meant to get married in 2015 at another venue. Due to some health issues we had to cancel. When we were ready to rebook our wedding we decided to go and view healey barn. Healey barn is stunning and we can honestly say that healey barn was always where we were meant to have our special day. To walk up that stunning aisle and see Ian standing there next to the huge amount of beautiful flowers was overwhelming and I nearly starting crying happy tears. It all went perfectly and Fran was absolutely brilliant and put us both at ease. The team are all very professional and the notes pages are brilliant for the organising stages we both felt well looked after. The food was fabulous and generous ( The Black family love their food and are notoriously hard to fill up) and everyone enjoyed the wine. We had several guests say that this was the best wedding they had ever been to. Harriet's flowers were amazing I can see why she comes highly recommended. We are so glad we waited for our wedding and had it at healey, it was better than we could have ever imagined. Thank you Alex and Ian

By far the best decision we made during the whole planning process, they were phenomenal. From start to finish they had everything in hand, we felt totally relaxed during the whole process. We were planning for 18 months and in that time the venue was constantly improving ... we already thought they were pretty perfect so were always surprised when they got better and better! on the day they just blew us away, I'm very emotional and can easily be stressed or anxious, I was worried about being rushed and overwhelmed but that couldn't be further from what I felt. Our coordinator for the day Fran was amazing.... I had absolutely nothing to worry about, from the moment I pulled up in the car I felt totally at ease, I didn't feel bombarded with information, there was no chaos, just relaxed and left to enjoy the day... really really can't thank her enough! Weeks passed and we were still getting people come up to us saying how good the day was, no word of a lie I lost count of how many people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The food, the flowers, the fire pits... everything was just exactly how we imagined it... it was better than we ever could have hoped for.

Healey Barn - Quite simply the best venue to get m
Venue Service

By Tom and Nadege Williamson, on 08 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2018

Healey Barn and their incredible team quite simply facilitated the best day of our lives. The entire day was handled with such precision whilst being flexible. The staff were calm and reassuring when the nerves were jangling and delighted and energetic when the celebrations kicked in. Leanne and Jack were pulling the strings with such style and charm during the day but there were so many people back stage working so diligently to ensure we had the most fabulous time. Everyone at Healey Barn takes such pride in what they do and the result is perfection. The bar staff were great fun and attentive and I must echo earlier comments - the food was sensational and people were falling over themselves to say so. Despite the back to back bookings at Healey Barn, they make you feel you are their most important couple. I could go on and on but you have a booking at Healey Barn to make. Thank you Healey Barn, we are eternally grateful.

Fantastic Venue
Venue Service

By Carly & Richard Nash, on 16 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2018

Our whole experience with Healey Barn has been fantastic from start to finish! The location and the venue itself are beautiful and made our decision to get married there easy. From the moment of booking the Healey team were supportive and extremely organised which made the whole process much less stressful! Despite being very popular, our questions were answered promptly and staff try to make the day as personal to you as possible. The day itself ran perfectly thanks to Ellis who managed everything fantastically! Our guests were extremely impressed with delicious food, the stunning venue and the staff. I would highly recommend Healey to anyone!

Our magical wedding
Venue Service

By Danielle and Laura, on 06 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2018

We knew as soon as we walked into Healy Barn that it was the wedding venue for us. The beautiful rustic atmosphere was just what we wanted so booked straight away. From start to finish the communication with the staff was fantastic. Any questions/ queries were answered immediately and nothing was an inconvenience. They made the planning process so incredibly stress free. As for the day itself, a huge thank you to Charlotte for coordinating it all. The excitement she showed towards being part of our day was heartwarming. Everything ran like clockwork and everything flowed effortlessly. We couldn’t have asked for more. The food was out of this world! We had the mixed grill from the BBQ and it surpassed all expectations. We had guests saying ‘it was the best food they’d ever had’ and no one went hungry. Jack and the bar staff on the evening were also fantastic. Friendly, helpful and professional. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and team around us. Every guest has said how magical and special Healy Barn is and we couldn’t agree more. Thank you for making our wedding day, a day we will never forget.

Healey Barn Review
Venue Service

By David & Stephanie Riall, on 06 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2018

Healey Barn were an absolute delight to be involved with from start to finish they were so helpful and supporting. Couldn’t have asked for better venue staff food and experience. I would recommend Healey Barn to anyone! If they could get sound permit for outside it would be flawless, but the foxes and deer not be to happy so it’s understandable really.

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!

By Suzanne & Matthew Gould, on 23 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Apr 2018

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
