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 day ever
    Venue Service

    By Kelly & Ashley, on 13 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Mar 2019

    Stone Barn as a venue speaks for itself, it’s incredibly beautiful. From the very beginning the staff have been fantastic. They’ve responded to any messages promptly and done anything they can to help make our wedding the most amazing day. From allowing us to visit for measurements, recommending the fabulous suppliers, amending figures quite a few times and stocking my favourite pink gin! Clayton and Esmee especially have really made us feel like we were the only couple getting married there. On the day they calmed a stressful bride(!) and helped with setting up. The serving staff were on hand to help with anything during the meal yet seemed to blend in with the guests. We couldn’t recommend it enough as the perfect venue to say I do :)

    Best venue ever!

    By Gillian and Marc Heggie, on 07 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Feb 2019

    We had our wedding at stone barn in Feb 2019. All the staff were absolutely amazing! From the moment we booked the communication was excellent and they made the whole experience totally stress free. They were so accommodating letting us set up the day before (as there wasn’t a wedding) which meant the morning of our wedding was perfect for everyone. Sarah on the day was so welcoming and had everything under control. All our guests have commented how beautiful the venue is and is really shows on the photos and will give us such special memories forever. Everyone has also said it’s the best food they’ve ever eaten at a wedding (which we also experienced at the taster which was the most fun evening ever!). Look no further than this venue because everything about it is amazing!! I wish we could do it all again because I don’t think I’ll ever top this day in my entire life!

    Cannot thank the team at stone barn enough, and would highly recommend them to anyone! It wasn't cheap, but you get exactly what you pay for, and the team know what they are doing. Everything was streamlined and all organising/communication was done on a online portal and they were more than happy to answer any questions. Clayton was our manager for the whole day and I was so impressed by how smoothly it all went. They really had thought of everything. Also-OMG the food, we picked a 'feast' so everything was included like canapes and desserts etc. which made everything so much easier. We made the best decision picking them for our wedding.

    Hi Amy and Pip, We're over the moon to hear that you had such an amazing day! We shall be sure to pass your thanks onto the team that worked that day. All the best for the future! Clayton.

    Perfect in every way

    By Bia & Stephen, on 23 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2018

    Such a fantastic venue. We had such a beautiful wedding day at Stone Barn. The place is stunning, so beautiful, the food amazing – everything perfectly cooked and the dauphinoise potatoes are ridiculous! The whole day was made totally seamless by the team, both the team through the day and the night shift who had to put up with the late night rabble – they were lovely, sorted everything with a smile, so calm and professional. (All the way through the process in fact, super attentive and patient with our endless stream of questions.) We have had so many guests compliment Stone Barn since the wedding, thank you!

    Hi Bia and Stephen. Thank you for posting this review! Its great. I know Flora and Sarah were very instrumental in planning of your wedding, we shall pass on your thanks! Kind regards, Clayton.

    Incredible wedding venue
    Venue Service

    By Jen and Rich Murphy, on 28 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2018

    Cripps Stone Barn made our wedding day incredible! The venue itself is a dream and we were so lucky with the weather but without all the staff it would not have been the same. Neither of us wanted for anything the whole day and everything went without a hitch. All of our guests have commented on how fabulous, friendly and attentive all the staff were and how amazing the food was. We have no hesitation recommending Cripps Stone Barn to everyone so we can hopefully come back and visit soon!

    By Hannah & Scott, on 13 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2018

    What a day. What a venue. A huge thank you to Clayton and all the staff at Stone Barn who made our wedding back in August the best day of our lives. From the moment we initially viewed the venue we knew it was “the one” and we 100% made the right choice! Every single element was perfect; from the amazing food, to the stunning view, to the beautiful lighting! I simply cannot recommend the venue enough!

    Hi Hannah and Scott, Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review! I remember meeting you at the open day for the first time and then being at the wedding itself was an absolute pleasure! We hope married life is treating you both well! Many thanks and kind regards, Clayton and The Stone Barn Team

    Summer wedding
    Venue Service

    By Sophie and Anthony Crocker, on 10 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

    As soon as we first viewed Stone Barn we knew it was amazing. With such pretty scenery and the actual venue itself is stunning. In the lead up the team were fantastic with connect as you have your own account set up so it's so simple to share information or ask any questions. The actual day was perfect, from the weather to the party in the evening. Everything went without a hitch. As it was such a lovely day we were able to get married outside and Sarah was on hand to instruct myself and my bridesmaids. The canapes and food throughout the day was brilliant, everyone commented on how good it was...and some have been to a lot of weddings! The whole day was perfect and we can't thank the team enough for all their help and support, it wouldn't have been the same without them.

    Sarah Thuell, Barn Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 29/10/2018 13:29:47

    Hi Sophie and Anthony, It was our absolute pleasure! Our very best wishes for your married lives together! Sarah.

    The Perfect Day
    Venue Service

    By Holly & Jamie, on 25 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Jul 2018

    From the first time we stepped inside Stone Barn we fell in love with the place and were blown away by the service we received. From start to finish they made wedding planning so stress free and seamless, and because of their hard work we were able to have the elegant, chilled out, fun, happy day of our dreams. We've had so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful location, helpful staff and the delicious food. "The most incredible venue", "wow" and "the best wedding food we've ever had" are things we've heard more than once. Clayton, the manager, and his team were exceptional - there whenever we needed them and super attentive, it felt like nothing was too much trouble. Looking back, there is truly nothing we'd change about our Big Day and that's in no small part down to Stone Barn, their staff, their food and the venue's unsurpassed atmosphere.

    Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 29/10/2018 13:27:33

    Hi Holly and Jamie, Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review. Ill be sure to pass this onto the staff that were working on your wedding day. We wish you all the best, Clayton and the Stone Barn team.

    Stone Barn such a fabulous Wedding Venue
    Venue Service

    By Katie Parry, on 06 May 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Apr 2018

    We got married at Stone Barn a few weeks ago and I have to say that I cannot rate this venue highly enough. We had such an amazing day from start to finish. The food was amazing right from the canapes through to the evening food and I can't believe how much of it there was. Our guests are still raving about it now and many have said to us that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to which really does say a lot. The staff were fantastic and I have to say that you didn't even know they were there (which is definitely a good thing) and I have to praise Vicky who made sure that me and my new husband had enough canapes on the day too to keep us going! The surroundings to the venue are also so beautiful and stunning that if you want a venue set in beautiful countryside with a rustic feel Stone Barn is definitely the venue to go for.

    Hi Katie and Mark, Thank you for sending in this lovely review! I shall pass your thanks on to Vicki too! Best wishes, Clayton and The Stone Barn Team

    Stone barn was the last venue we looked at and I am so glad we waited! It was the perfect venue as it was rustic but still beautiful and the fairy lights did help sell it for me. The staff have been amazing from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone of our guests had so many good things to say about how lovely the venue was and how much they enjoyed the food! I wish we could do it all again.

    Easter 2018 wedding
    Venue Service

    By Tom & Lucy, on 05 May 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2018

    A huge thank you to Clayton and the team at Stone Barn for looking after us so well on our wedding day. We chose Stone Barn for the beautiful surrounds and venue space for c 120 guests. We loved having a separate space for the ceremony inside (and outside if you are lucky with the weather) and wedding breakfast. When we then went to a feast evening and got stuck into delicious salmon, steak and veggies we were delighted with our choice. So many of our guests have told us that our wedding breakfast was the best they’ve ever had. Our meeting, messages and calls with Cara, Jason and Clayton gave us all the assurance we needed in the build up to the big day that they had it all in hand. On the day itself Clayton was so calm and helpful, and efficiently made it all run like clockwork helping us throughout the day. In the evening under the fairy lights Stone Barn really was a magical place. We’re so happy with our choice for our wedding, and really can’t recommend the venue, the food and the team enough.

    Hi Lucy and Tom, Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review, we really appreciate it! You know those Feast Nights are running all year round, if you would like to pop back for one, you're more than welcome too! Best wishes, Clayton and The Stone Barn team.

    A Perfect Day

    By Adam and Michelle, on 13 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Mar 2018

    We had a wonderful wedding day thanks to Sarah and Riley and all the staff at Stone Barn - from planning to execution they always went the extra mile for us. All of our guests loved the venue and the delicious food. It was a rainy day - but thanks to the plentiful room in the venue it didn't matter.
