About

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.

    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.

    Incredible

    We could not have loved Stone Barn any more! Despite having to postpone our wedding 3 times, the staff always made us feel valued and cared for, which helped us through this journey. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and ideal for the relaxed, romantic feel we wanted. The food was exceptional and we are still receiving compliments on this now! (We had the amazing lamb). The staff we brilliant, a massive shout to Clayton who was there every step of the way and all of the other lovely staff who made the build up, day and after so great. We can not thank you enough for helping us have the most special day ❤

    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.

    The most perfect day at Stone Barn!

    We had such an amazing wedding day at Stone Barn. The venue looked amazing, their recommended suppliers were excellent, our guests all complimented the food and it was managed well on the day so that it all went seamlessly (thank you to Clayton!) Would highly recommend booking.

    Micro wedding

    Staff were very professional and the day ran smoothly. The venue is beautiful and food is great. We had our wedding during the pandemic so aspects of the day were compromised based on government guidelines therefore value for money was less than if we were able to go ahead as planned.

    Stone Barn's reply:

    Hi Jodie and Michael,

    Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled we were able to go ahead with your wedding, we are so sorry you were unable to have the big day you had planned but it was a beautiful day nonetheless.

    We wish you both the very best for the future.

    Kindest regards,

    Sarah and the Stone Barn Team

    It was worth the wait!

    Married late June 2021.

    The Stone Barn team were just amazing. We rescheduled once, from September 2020, and married just before the opening of all restrictions at the end of June 2021. The team were super flexible with our last minute table plan adjustments/music/DJ arrangements and let us visit the barn quite a few times in the lead up to the day. The team were super communicative during the lead up to our big day and definitely left us feeling confident that we were in very good hands. It was honestly the most magical day and we just want to rewind the clock and do it all over again! All our guests commented what an amazing venue Stone Barn is, how superb the food was and we had friends and family from all over the world watch the live stream video link - they all said the Barn looked wonderful!
    The team were fantastic on the night, Charlie and Sarah, we can't thank you enough for making everything run so very smoothly. We had nothing to worry about on the day and we were able to relax and enjoy every moment. It was just the most perfect day and everybody was so very happy. I will tell anyone who asks what an amazing team Stone Barn has!

    Thank you again for everything and making our day so magical

    They are not refunding the devastated brides who could not get married this summer due to the virus, disgustingly greedy

    Beautiful Cotswold wedding

    We were married at Stone Barn last week and had the most beautiful day. The venue was gorgeous and the food was absolutely delicious, it was perfect. The staff at the barn were so attentive on the day, so professional and relaxed. Throughout the whole process, from booking to rescheduling and with all of the uncertainty last year, the staff at the barn have been so approachable, friendly, understanding and so flexible. They offered us several options for our rescheduling and really put us at ease with our anxieties. I would recommend them highly to anyone who wants a beautiful, intimate, countryside wedding.

    Couldn’t find a better venue

    Stone Barn were truly amazing. Not only throughout the Covid regulation changes but from day one of viewing & booking to our wedding day. They were professional, helpful and thoroughly invested in our wedding day happiness. They didn’t stop on the day and were one step ahead.
    With 7 days to work through the new Covid rules and implement changes, they kept us updated and pulled it off with flying colours. Not only is the venue perfect for a wedding but the best wedding food I’ve ever had and the most sensational setting. We had the best day and I honestly don’t think you’d find a better venue to take all the choices off your hands.

    The very best day

    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.

    Stone Barn's reply:

    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

    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.

    Stone Barn's reply:

    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

    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.

    Stone Barn's reply:

    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!!

    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

    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!

    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!

    Stone Barn's reply:

    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!
