Facilities and Capacity
Newly transformed into an elegant wedding venue, Stone Barn still retains its distinctive historical aesthetic that effortlessly blends into the surrounding landscape. Its generous interior is enhanced by flagstone floors, a huge open fireplace, and wooden beams. An undoubtedly idyllic setting, the barn can hold up to 120 guests for a ceremony and 250 guests for your evening reception, complete with a dance floor. Alternatively, the pristine grounds offer an enchanting wooden shelter for an outdoor summer ceremony, where you can 'I do' against a backdrop of rolling hills. The adjoining Dutch barns feature elegantly arched ceilings, beautiful corrugated iron roofs, and the most breathtaking views for wedding photography. Within this split-level space, guests can mingle with post-ceremony drinks at the gallery bar before tucking into the wedding feast below. Comfortably holding up to 194 seated guests, the Dutch barn also features a large, open terrace with roaring fire pits to keep loved ones warm.

Faultless. The perfect venue
Superb wedding venue
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
What a venue!!
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
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!
Beyond our wildest dreams
The BEST venue for our wedding
Magical venue with incredible staff
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!
I want all my friends to get married here so I can go again!
The best day of our lives!!
Fantastic wedding experience at Stone Barn - twice!
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.
