About Healey Barn

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

Healey Barn was voted the UK’s Best New Venue 2016 in the Awards run by Hitched, Perfect Wedding and You & Your Wedding.

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

    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

    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!!

    Hi Mr and Mrs Hutchinson, Thank you both so much for your incredibly lovely review!

    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!

    Best wedding ever said everyone!
    Venue Service

    By Tom & Ben, on 12 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

    Healey Barn....... phenomenal! I couldn’t have dreamt a more perfect day if I tried. The artitecture, the surroundings the whole atmosphere the barn has is just beautiful. I need to give special thanks to Charlotte, Frab and Doug. You and your team are such an assest to the barn. Your friendly approach and organisation skills would be hard to match. The food is 5 star everyone I spoke to said the food was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding. So again the chef and his staff who would often go unrecognised keep on doing your stuff because you excel at perfection! Our day was like a romantic film. I can’t describe the feeling I had when I saw all ours guests reaction. That feeling will stay with me until the end of time. Knowing that we could not have pick a better venue!

    Beyond Expectations
    Venue Service

    By Hazel Moran, on 04 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2018

    Healey Barn's staff were incredible from start to finish. They made every aspect of planning so easy and we were so touched with how they looked after us and our loved ones on the wedding day. We did not have to think of anything and they guided us through it all with such enthusiasm and care. The venue itself is stunning and needs very little decoration which saves on a lot of money and organisation. The food was outstanding and served in such a relaxed and attractive style, A few even said it was one of the best meals they had ever had which is high praise indeed for a wedding meal! We wish we could do it all over again - If you want the perfect stress free, barn wedding in the gorgeous Northumbrian countryside - Healey is the venue for you!

    The Most Magical Day
    Venue Service

    By Rebecca & Andrew Tatters, on 27 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2018

    I would just like to thank all of the staff at Healey Barn. The service from the initial showing of the venue to the day of and through out the wedding was nothing short of outstanding. All our guests have since came to us and said that it was without a doubt the most beautiful venue they have ever been too. It was a vision of a fairy tale!

    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 Ashleigh Patterson, on 11 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2018

    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.

    Charlotte, Assistant Front of House Manager at Healey Barn responded to this review on 02/10/2018 13:32:41

    Hi Ashleigh and Michael, Wow! Thank you for such an incredible review! We are so glad you enjoyed your day with us. It was an absolute pleasure looking after you all! We will certainly pass your thanks onto Fran and the rest of the team. Hopefully you'll be invited to a wedding at Healey Barn, so we can see you both again! Our very best wishes, the Healey Barn team

    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.
