About Stone Barn

Near Upper Windrush, Cheltenham
Gloucestershire, GL54 3RF

Stone Barn is situated on a peaceful hill with sweeping views over the glorious Cotswold countryside. This historic building was transformed into a wedding barn by Cripps & Co, a family-run business that has nearly 30 years experience in creating weddings. The barn is located between Burford and Northleach on the Gloucestershire-Oxfordshire border.

Stone Barn’s generous interior is enhanced by flagstone floors, a huge open fireplace, and wooden beams. It is an idyllic setting for a ceremony during the day and is transformed into a dance floor for the evening. This barn can hold up to 120 guests for a ceremony or 250 guests for your evening reception.

Our adjoining Dutch barns have elegantly arched ceilings, beautiful corrugated iron roofs and sweeping views over the surrounding landscape. This split level space is set up for post-ceremony drinks at the gallery bar and wedding feasts down below. A large, open terrace has roaring fire pits to keep guests warm. The Dutch Barns can hold up to 194 seated guests.

A wooden shelter in the Stone Barn grounds provides an idyllic spot for outdoor ceremonies in the summer, with views across the surrounding hills.  

Our in-house chefs design a personal menu and flame-grill food on a giant indoor BBQ (believed to be the biggest in the UK!) and rotisserie. We buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously.

An on-site team provides an exceptional service and can help with everything from the big ideas to the last minute details.

The very best day
Venue Service

By Emily and Aman Rai, on 21 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Nov 2019

Stone Barn has always held a place in my heart as it's former use was my Grandfathers lambing barn. My poor fiance was dragged to the barn, 18 months prior to our wedding, already knowing he was going to break my heart if he didn't agree to marry me there! Luckily as soon as he entered the venue he turned to me and said 'I love it'. From start to finish the team at Stone Barn have been amazing. Our wedding on 15th November 2019 was everything we had dreamed of. I was nervous not seeing the venue fully dressed before I walked down the aisle but every detail was there exactly as I had explained. The Stone Barn team run the day so calmly and expertly - you could not be in better hands. My only wish is that we could do it all again.

Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 22/11/2019 13:33:04

Hi Emily and Aman, Thank you for your lovely words. With already such a strong connection to the barn, it only seemed right that you got married there, and what an amazing day it was too! We wish you all the very best for the future! Clayton and The Stone Barn Team

What a day
Venue Service

By James and Siobhan Shackleton, on 16 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Nov 2019

We couldn't recommend a better location for a winter wedding. Looking back on the whole wedding from soup to nuts, I still wonder how it was so easy. We looked at two venues (Cripps Barn and Stone Barn), decided a date and to go with Stone Barn within half a day. The massive open kitchen and grill was the main selling point. From that point on, organising the day was made so easy by the team, the food choices, the wine, the admin on the day. All perfectly relaxed with all the required details. It hammered it down with rain on the day! However, this didn't dampen any spirits and the execution was spot on. Whole lambs roasted all day over the fire, garlicky dauphinoise, smooth red wine. Followed by mountains of cheese and pizza. It is a food and booze lovers heaven. Everybody we have spoken to since has spoken so positively about the day, the venue, and in particular, the food. Food aside, Sarah was amazing, incredibly chilled and helpful both in the build up and the morning of the reception. I couldn't recommend this place enough.

Sarah Thuell, Barn Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 19/11/2019 15:56:22

Hi James and Siobhan, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review. The rain definitely enhanced the atmosphere in the barn, it looked so beautiful with all the candles, very cosy. We will pass your thanks on to the rest of the team. Please do come and see us again when you are next in Cirencester. Kindest regards, Sarah and The Stone Barn Team

The PERFECT day to leave Miss behind
Venue Service

By Rebecca Everitt, on 05 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Nov 2019

With the 1st November looming, the nervous ticks and twitches started. How will the day go? Will everything run okay? Will the day be what we have been dreaming of? The answer to all of the above is an undisputed and encompassing YES! Myself and my now husband would re-live the day time and time again. All the worries and anxiety were soon forgotten the moment we drove down the drive. With staff waiting on us and our guests without comprise, the venue decked out with lights, candles and fires to the highest of quantity and food and drive around every corner, what more could any bride and groom ask for? Stone Barn and all its staff were the epitome of an excellent wedding venue. Could praise them enough. Would recommend time and time again.

Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 18/11/2019 14:05:25

Hi Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to write this, we really appreciate it! We shall be sure to pass on your words to the guys that worked! Many thanks once again, Clayton and The Stone Barn Team.

The Most Perfect Day!!
Venue Service

By Lauren and Greg Strong, on 09 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Oct 2019

I first saw Stone Barn around 3 years ago on a friends Instagram page when they shared photos of where their sister had been married and I knew immediately that it was the place I wanted to get married! We went to look at other barn style venues around the country but when we stepped into Stone Barn, the others stood no chance! We were told by many of our guests that it was the nicest venue they have been to for a wedding! Despite the gale force winds and rain, the venue did not disappoint and enabled everyone to feel comfortable in the vast space and actually made sure the inside was fully utilised! The fairy lights and candles made it feel so cozy and the open kitchen provided the extra warmth and made for brilliant people watching! The team (particularly Clayton and Esme who we spoke to most) could not have done more to ensure our day was the best it could have been! The whole staff were excellent and so friendly and attentive even in the early hours or the morning! The food served was some of the best we’ve tasted and there was enough to feed an army! We went for lamb to be carved at the table and this added another element of fun! The most beautiful venue, the most wonderful staff and the most delicious food! I can’t thank you guys enough!!

The Wedding Venue of Dreams
Venue Service

By Sophie & James Dawson, on 18 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Oct 2019

When me and my now husband first started looking at venues, we narrowed down a few barns in the area. However, as soon as I walked into Stone Barn I knew this was the place we were going to get married. Ever since then the process was seamless and easy, we had a planning meeting in September and took some wine away to try for the big day. Everyone’s communication was amazing from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. The venue really does speak for itself and all of our guests commented that it was one of the most beautiful venues they had ever seen - they’re not wrong! The food was absolutely incredible too. Sarah was our day manager and she was absolutely incredible. She makes you feel like you are the most important people and you are going to enjoy your special day. I cannot recommend this venue enough. Thanks guys!

Perfect day!

By Sophie & James, on 04 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Sep 2019

So we live nowhere near the Cotswolds but as soon as we saw the venue online we knew it was the one! And when we visited the venue it didn’t disappoint- it’s just beautiful! Our friends and family travelled from far and wide for our big day, but so many of them said how worth it it was- the venue is amazing and the food was fantastic and plentiful! I couldn’t fault anything about the day and all the staff were so Helpful and attentive throughout the whole process. Wish we could do it all over again!

Clayton Shutt, Front of House manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 07/10/2019 14:50:16

Hi Sophie and James, Definitely a long way to travel, but it was 100% worth it! We wish you all the best! Clayton and the Stone Barn Team!

An unbelievable day!
Venue Service

By Kim and Andy, on 05 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2019

From start to end, Esmee and the team at Stone Barn have been nothing but professional, helpful and lovely. It was evident from the beginning that they bring a lot of experience, and we're so happy as the day ran as smooth as clockwork with no input needed from us at all. The building and location are amazing, so beautiful whatever the weather! The guests (including veggie, vegan, gluten free, etc) were all blown away with the quality of the main meal, canapes and deserts. The evening pizza was an enormous hit (even with our friends who just came back from Italy!), the bar staff and waiting team were attentive (yet invisible!) If either of us got married again we would definitely chose Stone Barn again! ;) Thanks to the team for an unbelievable day!! Kim and Andy x

Esmee Barwood, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 07/10/2019 14:24:12

Kim and Andy, we are so pleased you enjoyed your wedding day with us! It was such a pleasure to have you and all of your guests at the barn to what was a phenomenal wedding day! Please do come and visit us if you are ever in the area again. Best wishes, Esmee

Simply perfect
Venue Service

By Johann Bagoban, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Sep 2019

Stone barn Aldsworth, what can I say..... the perfect day. The staff could not be more accommodating and go the extra mile to make sure everything is how you’d expect it (I’m not the easiest customer either). The venue is perfect for a great family celebration and even without flowers is beautiful. I’d love to do it all over again! Fantastic service fantastic venue they know what they are doing.

Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 01/10/2019 10:56:17

Hi Johann, Thank you very much for this. We really appreciate hearing great feedback and will be sure to pass it onto the team here. Please pass our thanks onto Suzy too! Best wishes, Clayton and the Stone Barn Team

Utterly amazing!
Venue Service

By Susie Burnett, on 22 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2019

This venue was utterly incredible! From the beauty of the stone barn to the amazing food and the brilliant co-ordinator! This was the first venue we saw (and we saw a lot following) and we both new immediately that it was the one for us. Go view it - it's so beautiful! The whole process was so much easier than we thought it would be and t co-ordinators make life so easy and are always there to answer any questions. Importantly for us the venue suits any weather (you can be completely inside all day if you need to be but also the outside is gorgeous - we saw many venues including sister venues of this one where you're reliant on being outside for at least part of the day and I just didn't want to risk that in the UK so stone barn was perfect). We have had so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was and also on how the food was the best anyone has ever had - it honestly was amazing! And Sarah our co-ordinator was fantastic - seriously can't recommend this place enough. It was our dream venue!

The best of the best
Venue Service

By Anna & Rhys Davies, on 07 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

We had the most amazing experience with Stone Barn. The venue is beautiful and location picturesque, but what really made it was the team. They were organised and friendly, always willing to help and share ideas where needed. On the day Esmee and her team were absolutely brilliant. Everything ran smoothly so we could enjoy every moment. The food and drinks are fabulous and we had so many comments about how wonderful the venue, food and staff were. Couldn’t recommend Stone Barn highly enough!

The most beautiful venue!!
Venue Service

By Sophie Coombs and Matthew Bluett, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Aug 2019

From the moment we stepped in to stone barn, we fell in love. It is honestly the most stunning venue and the staff are brilliant. The communication via the online portal was ideal for the planning and costs and we always had a response very quickly. Our day ran so smoothly, Clayton was absolutely amazing, I literally didn’t have to worry about anything. The food was incredible and so many of our guests commented on this. The way the tables were set up looked even better than I had ever imagined. I would not think twice about recommending this beautiful venue, our day was perfect and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thank you so much. Matt and Sophie Bluett

Theatrical and magical to really WOW your guests
Venue Service

By Olivia Gauld, on 20 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Aug 2019

What an absolutely smashing venue! From the incredible food, beautiful setting to the amazing staff. Our day ran like an absolute dream with the Stone Barn team. Nothing was ever a problem, right from our planning meetings through to collecting our final bits the following day. Working in events myself, Stone Barn were by far the best venue I have worked with to date. Quick responses, flexibility, a great communications portal to keep track of everything made organising our dream wedding ridiculous easy. Stone Barn has a real “WOW” impact for your guest from the roaring fireplace to the entire ceiling being lit up gives your day a really theatrical and magical feeling. It was our dream venue.

Sarah Thuell, Barn Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 10/09/2019 10:49:31

Hi Olivia and Craig, Thank you for your lovely message. We had such a great time hosting your wedding, what a great group of family and friends you have, very fun! We wish you all the best for the future. Kindest regards, Sarah and The Stone Barn Team
