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.

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.

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!

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!

A fantastic wedding venue
Venue Service

By Portia & Tristan Maddick, on 26 May 2019Date of Wedding - 05 May 2019

We're so pleased we decided to get married at Stone Barn. The staff were incredibly helpful and efficient both during the planning and on the day. The food was all amazing and they were able to accommodate many different dietary requirements for our guests with no trouble. After the wedding we heard a lot of compliments about the food and how friendly the staff were. Also the feast evening we went to was so much fun! It was lovely to try all the food, see the venue all dressed up and to meet other couples getting married around the same time as us.

Clayton Shutt, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 30/05/2019 09:41:10

Hi Portia and Tristan, We're so pleased to hear that you had a lovely time, we're glad you enjoyed it as much as we did! If you are ever in the area again and fancy coming along to a feast night, do let us know! Our very best wishes, Clayton and The Stone Barn Team.

Best Day Ever
Venue Service

By Hannah and Ian Day, on 27 May 2019Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

From the moment we stepped into Stone Barn to look around we knew it was the wedding venue for us! From then on, from the second we booked to now (weeks after our wedding) the communication we’ve had with the team has been seamless and everyone has been incredible! The day itself was absolutely amazing. The venue looked beautiful and the food was outstanding, we’re still getting compliments! The team were also amazing and we can’t thank them enough. In particular, our host, Esmee, was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. Overall, we couldn’t have chosen a better wedding venue if we tried and we wish we could do the day all over again and change nothing. Thank you so much! Hannah and Ian (04.05.2019)

Esmee, Event Coordinator at Stone Barn responded to this review on 31/05/2019 12:52:06

Hannah and Ian, what an incredible day! It was a pleasure to have you and all of your guests at Stone Barn to celebrate your wonderful wedding. We are so pleased it was everything you hoped for. We wish you the very best, Esmee and the Stone Barn Team

The perfect day!

By Layla & Louis, on 01 May 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Apr 2019

We had our wedding reception at Stone Barn in April 2019. It really is the best venue! The building, staff and food were all incredible... we couldn't have asked for a better venue.

Incredible venue, amazing day
Venue Service

By Lee and Hayley, on 22 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Apr 2019

Stone Barn is an incredible venue and we knew it was the right place for our wedding the moment we arrived. Located in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside, surrounded by beautiful lush green and bright yellow fields. The staff are fantastic, so warm, welcoming and super helpful. The food is amazing too. Would recommend attending a feast night before choosing your menus. All of our guests had a great time and kept commenting on how superb the venue was. I can not recommend Stone Barn enough, it had everything we wanted for our wedding, and more.

Esmee, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 08/05/2019 16:40:05

Thank you very much for your comments Hayley and Lee, we are very grateful. We are delighted that you had such a great day at Stone Barn. Your two boys looked completely adorable walking down the aisle into the ceremony! Best wishes, Esmee

Made all our wedding dreams come true!
Venue Service

By Kate Bancroft, on 06 May 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Apr 2019

We couldn't be more grateful to the team at Stonebarn for making our wedding day truly wonderful. They made the wedding planning process easy and were on hand to answer any questions we had right up until the day before. An extra big thank you to Esmee and Sarah for their help and support on the day. All of our guests commented on how delish the food was, particularly enjoying the way the food was served on sharing platters. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect venue.

Esmee, Front of House Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 08/05/2019 16:37:00

You are very welcome, it was a pleasure to share your day with you and all of your guests! We wish you the very best in your future, Esmee

The Stonebarn is a beyond beautiful venue. It doesn't need many extra touched because it is incredible in its own right. All our guests (who travelled a fair way ) were all really complementary of the venue and said how much of a fantastic day they had. The staff are all friendly and were always on hand when you needed any questions answering. If we could do it all over again we would go back there in an instant.

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!
Venue Service

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!

Sarah Thuell, Barn Manager at Stone Barn responded to this review on 07/03/2019 14:10:54
