Simply Amazing!

We can't thank Angie, Jasmine and the whole team at Stone Barn enough. We truly had an amazing wedding day with them. The venue itself is just beautiful, the food created by the team of chefs was outstanding, everyone commented so on the day and they were very accommodating to dietary requirements.
Our wedding day ran so smoothly thanks to our coordinator Jasmine. We can't sing their praises enough! We truly had the most incredible day so thank you Stone Barn.

The perfect wedding!

Quite simply, we couldn't have wished for anything more from our wedding venue. The venue speaks for itself, it is truly magical and we fell in love with it the moment we walked into the barn. As importantly, everyone we worked with during the planning process were professional, helpful and were a pleasure to work with. The culture amongst all the staff is fantastic and they mix up the right level of enthusiasm, support and knowledge. As for the day itself, it ran as smoothly as they promised. A huge thank you to Jasmine and Toby who were our day and evening coordinators respectively. They are so hard working, kind and we will be forever grateful to them for helping make our day so special. Thank you so much Stone Barn, Jasmine and Toby!

Faultless. The perfect venue

Stone Barn was incredible to work with and gave us a day that was better than we could have ever hoped! The staff were responsive, professional, warm and reassuring. Stone Barn really knows how to host a wedding and how to create a truly magical day. They take the stress out of your hands. The venue is designed in a way that feels welcoming, warm and wholesome. We had awful weather on our wedding day but it truly didn't matter. Would highly recommend Stone Barn to any couple looking for an intimate, personal, perfectly-executed day. Stone Barn holds itself to a very high standard - ourselves and all our guests could feel it. We had so many compliments on our venue!

Superb wedding venue

Stone Barn took our breath away the moment we saw it and the service we received in the year leading up to our wedding was sensational.

The building is beautiful, the food was superb and plentiful and the staff were amazing from the beginning of the process right till the very end.

I would highly recommend Stone Barn for a beautiful Cotswold wedding.

An incredible venue

We had our wedding at Stone Barn last week and it was incredible in every way. Our guests are STILL contacting us to say how amazing the food was (and how generous the portions were). The team were helpful all the way through the process and executed the day perfectly, and the setting has given us some stunning wedding photographs. Absolutely no complaints – I can't express how glad we are that we chose this venue.

What a venue!!

We got married at Stone Barn in July 2023…
What a magical venue, from the look around tour back in 2021 to the wedding day- a seamless and stress free process!

The venue is just incredible, in the middle of amazing countryside- the two different barns are stunning, and flow together so well…the fairy lights and lanterns, candles, give it such a magical feeling.

The new addition of the natural wood tables give it such a lovely rustic vibe and the new disco balls for the evening are a must- they make the barn look amazing!
We opted for the teepees for our 4 young family members, they loved the space and it kept them entertained with also a place to chill.

We had rain and sun on our day, meaning our drinks reception was half in/outside- the space is perfect for all weather. When it rained it made the inside look even more magical and dramatic with the twinkly fairy lights.

Jasmine was our coordinator and she was just amazing, the day ran so smoothly, stone barn are pros at what they do!

The food- wow, I can’t stop thinking about those bbq sirloin bricks! Everyone has commented on how amazing all the food was, the best wedding food they have had!

Wish we could do it all again!
Thank-you Stone Barn!

Magical Wedding Venue

We got married a couple of weeks ago at Stone Barn and had the most magical wedding experience. The venue is incredible - both the location and the building itself, which has been stunningly renovated with a lot of thought to how weddings and large parties function. Each space is beautiful, and you can move through them without feeling like you're stuck in one place for hours. The outside space with the lanterns and fire pits is also lovely.

The staff are extremely professional, charming and accommodating - everyone we spoke to from the moment of our virtual tour through the whole process really impressed us and was one of the reasons we decided to book here. On the day itself, everything happened seamlessly, and a few last-minute requests were easily accommodated. We really felt like we were in good hands and didn't need to worry about much!

The last reason, of course, is the food, which is outstanding. Everything is cooked on a wood fire. Most of our guests said it was the best wedding food they'd ever had, and the late night pizzas and s'more were a really fun and delicious addition. The drama of seeing it prepared on-site also added to the whole event!

We can't recommend Stone Barn and Cripps + Co enough - we wish we could do it all over again!

Magical venue with incredible staff

The Stone Barn was everything we dreamed for and more - and what made everything even better was the staff who ensured our day was magical. Thank you so much to Katie especially for being amazing from consultation to the day itself, and also for being super nice, friendly, and fun throughout the whole organisation process. (Basically, we wish were were besties with you Katie).

Everything from the Barn aesthetics to the food to the outdoor decorations and fire, to the amazing cocktails. Everything was perfect and the day ran seamlessley. We would 1000% recommend this to anyone who is interested. Their sister Barn - Cripps is also beautiful, however you won't get Katie and the amazing team from The Stone Barn if you go for Cripps ;)

Honestly gutted we can't do it all over again. Had THE most amazing day and all our friends and family loved it too. We can't thank you enough.

Best day ever!

Honestly where do I start! This venue is absolutely to die for, it’s so dreamy and intimate and all of guests commented on how stunning it was. From the start of the process to the end all of the staff were incredible and always on hand with any questions you may have and the attention to detail is second to none. The food was divine and all of our guest said it’s the best food at ANY wedding they’ve been to before. I couldn’t recommend this venue enough and want to do it all over again. It’s so perfect so thank you Stone Barn you were amazing!!

I want all my friends to get married here so I can go again!

Stone Barn is of the most beautiful, well-kept venues I've ever seen - the attention to detail and quality of everything is incredible. We fell in love with it as soon as we walked through the door. Not only this, but the whole process we went through as we booked and planned the wedding was seamless and enjoyable. I could not fault the execution of the day itself - Katie did a fabulous job at keeping everything on track, but we also felt like the whole day was so relaxed! It's definitely a pricier choice - but if you want a wedding where everything is taken care of for you, with exceptionally good food and drink, and a stunning venue both inside and outside - then go for Stone Barn. A number of our guests commented that it was the best food and venue they've ever been to. Cannot recommend it enough and I'd just love to do it all again!

The best day of our lives!!

Stone barn was one of the first venues we viewed and we knew straight away it was the one. It is so incredibly beautiful in both the day and night and fit so perfectly with our plans. We cannot thank the staff at Stone Barn enough, the day ran so smoothly. Katie was incredible running up to the wedding and also so calming and lovely on the day. So many of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they had attended and how beautiful the venue was. We honestly had the best day of our lives.

Fantastic wedding experience at Stone Barn - twice!

We really couldn't recommend Stone Barn highly enough, for their level of service (professional and friendly); the quality of their food; and the overall ambience of the venue.
Like so many couples, our wedding was re-scheduled (3 times) as it was originally booked for April 2020 with 86 people from various countries. After a great deal of stress, we were actually married on 6th December (with just 6 of us) and we finally had our celebration on 4th August with 50 people (Australian contingent couldn't join us, sadly).
Many thanks to the whole team at Stone Barn, but especially Rachel who was endlessly patient through the trials and tribulations of re-booking and who made sure that our (very small) ceremony in December was still extremely special and memorable.
Our celebration in August was wonderful, helped by glorious weather, as it was the first time many of our guests had socialised and it all felt very relaxed, safe and a good time was had by all.
With regards to the food, it is simply delicious (many of our guests commented on it) and we would definitely recommend going to a 'feast night' to test it yourself!
The venue itself is fabulous, it has a casual and relaxed ambience but is undoubtedly very special; the moment we saw it, we knew it was where we wanted to be married.
The communication with Stone Barn is very well run, through a central portal, which means that emails don't go astray.
Given the uncertainty and stresses of the past 18 months, we would like to say a personal thank-you to each and every member of the Stone Barn team for making both our days so fantastic.

Perfect Wedding Venue

As many weddings in 2021, our journey hasn’t been an easy one but we honestly could not have done it without the support from the team at Cripps. From booking our original wedding venue for October 2020, to moving to Shustoke to finally getting married at Stone Barn in July, everyone was so incredibly supportive and couldn’t do enough to make sure we had the prefect day. As we approached our wedding day, our suppliers (florist, videographer) ended up dropping out, Cripps once again stepped up and made sure that everything was as we wanted it to be. We must give a special mention to Clayton, Toby and Rachael from Stone Barn as they all went above an beyond to make sure timings were correct, we had petals to use for the confetti, elderly relatives were catered for, the list goes on. We could not recommend Stone Barn and Cripps and Co highly enough and it was honestly the best decision we made.
