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 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

Above and beyond!!
Venue Service

By Robyn Tilley, on 15 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2019

We knew from the moment we stepped into The Stone Barn that we had to get married there. We were welcomed with such warmth by the team and blown away by the venue and its beautiful surroundings. From then on the planning process was seamless, Nothing was ever too much trouble and there was always someone within the team to speak to if we ever had any questions. Their client portal makes its really easy to communicate and keep track of whats included and the costs - we couldn't fault it! But the day itself, was above and beyond anything we could have wished for. Sarah and Esmee in particular worked tirelessly to make sure the day ran perfectly, which in turn meant we could just enjoy every element to its full. The food blew us away and we've had nothing but the most amazing feedback from all of our guests - most saying its the best venue and wedding catering they have ever had and it looked like something out of a movie set! The best advice we could give, is not to give it a second thought and book The Stone Barn for your wedding as soon as you can, because we can promise you will not regret it! Thank you SO much to all the team at The Stone Barn - you're amazing at what you do and we are so grateful for all the effort you went to to make sure we had the best possible day.

Hi Robyn and Damian, Thank you for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to be part of your big day. You dressed that barn so beautifully, great vision! We will pass your kind words onto the team, thank you. If you are ever in the area we would be delighted to see you again. With our very best wishes to you both. Sarah and The Stone Barn Team

Exceeded expectations
Venue Service

By Andy and Sarah Baillie, on 24 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Jul 2019

We fell in love with the Stone Barn as soon as we saw it. The Feast Night was exceptional and made choosing one meal so difficult! Throughout our planning process, everyone at the Stone Barn was super helpful - their communication and organisation cannot be faulted. Our actual wedding day, last weekend, blew our minds. We had high expectations but they were exceeded on the day. From the most delicious roast potatoes to the sterling service with saw servers lined up waiting to deliver food at exactly the right moment... all in a chilled and gorgeous environment. It couldn’t have been better. And our guests haven’t stopped raving about it since. We’ve received endless comments about the exceptional food, the space itself and the service. The open kitchen was a unique experience for guests and so attractive to look at. Thank you team Stone Barn.

Hi Andy and Sarah, Thank you so much for leaving this wonderful review! You guys are great! We hope to see you again! With our very best wishes, Clayton and The Stone Barn Team.

Amazing wedding venue in the Cotswolds
Venue Service

By Mark & James, on 09 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2019

What a can I say about this place but wow! We fell in love when we first drove there, and the team did not disappoint!! Our guests had an amazing time, and the team could not have been more helpful. The whole day was made so much more relaxed by the way the team worked with us to deliver the best possible wedding - I would highly recommend.

Better than our wildest dreams!
Venue Service

By Claire & James Young, on 07 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2019

Our wedding at Stone Barn in June 2019 was better than we ever could have imagined! Everything from the setting, styling, food and the super helpful team was far beyond our expectations. The moment I saw Stone Barn I knew it was for us - it was beautiful, relaxed and just a little bit different. On the day, Esme, our Duty Manager was not only all over it but incredibly relaxed, she would check in with James and I and no ask was too much, all our wedding party commented on how capable and efficient Esme was - a huge thank you to her! We also had heaps of comments on the aesthetics of the venue (gorgeous both in the day and evening) and the food - we might be biased but it was definitely the best wedding food we have ever had and the sharing platter style was really chilled and sociable. In the run up to the event as we were planning the event from China (James and I live in Shanghai) we would often send emails at strange hours, we would always get a swift response from Clayton, Sarah and the team and they were always so helpful. Everything about the day was perfect, I wish we could do it all over again. It is such a special venue but the team don't make you feel like 'just another wedding' - I could not recommend this venue enough. Thank you team - Claire & James x

Esmee, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 08/07/2019 16:56:01

Claire and James it was an absolute pleasure to be part of your incredible day! We are so pleased you and your guests had such a fantastic time, we too wish you could do it all over again. We wish you the very best and please do come and visit us in the future when you are back visiting from Shanghai. Best wishes, Esmee

The best decision we made in our planning
Venue Service

By Jen & Nick, on 03 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

We had seen quite a few venues in our search but when we visited Stone Barn, we really did know that is was the venue for us. From the beginning, Clayton, Sarah and the whole team were incredibly friendly, helpful and professional. So many of our guests commented on how fantastic the venue and food were and how well run it all was. We knew we were in safe hands in the lead-up and on the day! We had the most amazing day and we can't recommend Stone Barn highly enough.

Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 05/07/2019 23:38:30

Hi Jen and Nick, Thank you for taking the time to write this review! We do love the food here, its one of the many reasons why I love working here so much! We can't thank you enough for choosing us and hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Clayton and The Stone Barn Team!

Our best day ever!
Venue Service

By Hannah & Gary, on 13 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Jun 2019

We saw two Cripps venues but for us, when we walked into Stone Barn it was a no-brainer. It was everything we were looking for without being too 'wedding-y'. The open fires, fairy lights and warm welcome from all the staff made you feel instantly at ease. On our wedding day, everything ran so so smoothly, with our day manager being there at any point should we need anything and making sure everything ran seamlessly. I can not praise the venue or recommend them more highly. The food is INSANE with a number of our guests saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had. In fact, a number of them said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, with lots of comments on the stunning venue. The venue are also very fair, which is refreshing, making sure they give you back money for anything you don't end up using on the day. It is not hard to see why the Cripps brand is growing so rapidly - they have got it spot on. Thank you Stone Barn for making it the best day ever.

Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 13/06/2019 11:21:07

Hannah and Gary, What can we say? You have both been a delight to work with and it definitely reflected that on the wedding day itself, I think we enjoyed it as much as your guests did. We wish you all the best for the future and hope to see you again soon (at a feast night!) Clayton and The Stone Barn Team.

The most incredible place to get married!
Venue Service

By Lizzie and Will, on 29 May 2019Date of Wedding - 25 May 2019

From the moment we walked into Stone Barn we knew it was the venue for us. It has a relaxed, but special feel, with so many lovely little touches. All the staff at Stone Barn were incredible from start to finish and we can't thank them enough. The food was mind-blowing and there is an excellent selection of alcohol and soft drinks too. The setting is absolutely stunning and there is a real sense of tranquillity in beautiful countryside. We wish we could do it all over again!

Esmee, Wedding Coordinator at Stone Barn responded to this review on 31/05/2019 12:54:44

Lizzie and Will, we wish you could do it all over again too! A huge congratulations to you both. The welsh choir you booked for your ceremony was just one of the incredible touches you added to your fantastic day. We are so pleased you picked us! Sending you the very best wishes, Esmee

The most AMAZING day ever!!
Venue Service

By Kirstie & Simon Pattimore, on 16 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 23 May 2019

I’m not even sure where to begin...from the moment myself and my now husband stepped foot in Stone Barn we just completely and utterly fell in love with it... the look, style and decor of the whole venue plus the stunning open kitchen and beautiful grounds just completely sold it for us and we knew it was the perfect venue for our special day! From day 1 we were given all of the information we needed and the booking process and communication throughout has been second to none, Clayton, Sarah & Esme in particular were all so helpful both in the lead up to the wedding but also on the day, ensuring everything ran smoothly for us. You are spoilt for choice with the food and wine options but whatever you choose it is all mouth-wateringly delicious. The service on the day from the entire team was also second to none. We had the most fantastic day and all we wish is that we could relive it all over again...we are now both very sad that we don’t have any reason to return to Stone Barn again! We cannot recommend enough!

Absolutely perfect
Venue Service

By Tim and Natalie, on 29 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 18 May 2019

We loved our wedding at Stone Barn so much, it really was perfection. The location is beautiful and the venue is even more stunning. The food was incredible, and the team running the show could not have been more helpful. They have thought of everything and the whole operation is so smooth. We must give a special mention to Clayton who was our point of contact on the day; he was so helpful and always around to assist with any request, no matter how small or ridiculous! We really couldn't recommend this venue any more, it exceeded our expectations in every way.

Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 05/07/2019 23:33:15

Hi Tim and Natalie, Thats a review for you! Thank you very much for everything over the last couple of months, we wish you the very best for the future. Kind regards, Clayton and The Stone Barn Team!
