The Barn at Upcote is a stunning wedding venue near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Our Cotswold barns are situated around a courtyard offering an intimate atmosphere for both small and large gatherings. Each barn has been sympathetically restored with attention to detail and thought for the past, with the convenience of all things modern. Though it feels tucked away down its long private drive, the venue is easily located from all major routes.
Facilities and Capacity
Upon your arrival, surrounded by spectacular views, all the essential areas you need for your day are located within the courtyard. Many locations around the venue and surrounding farmland offer unforgettable backdrops for your wedding photographs. Host your ceremony and reception in the various barns, each featuring tasteful design elements like exposed brick walls, wooden beams, and ample natural light.
You have the flexibility to decorate the event areas, ensuring that your wedding looks just like you envisioned. Depending on your preferred seating and layout plan, the venue can comfortably accommodate up to 100 of your nearest and dearest during the day and up to 130 guests in the evening. There are also spaces for your DJ or band in the evening, with plenty of room to dance the night away.
You and your guests have exclusive use of the venue throughout your day, with our staff on hand to coordinate and answer all your queries. The venue has ample parking spaces available and is wheelchair accessible for complete peace of mind. There is no need to rush home after the wedding, as on-site overnight accommodation is available for the wedding couple and glamping is available for a few of your guests.

Dream come true
A perfect day and venue!
We had planned out quite a particular day, but on the day we did not have to lift a finger! The venue staff absolutely understood everything that we wanted, and executed it perfectly, from how everything looked to the timings for everything. It was incredible to be able to communicate what we wanted and then not have to worry at all about it getting done because of the exceptionally kind and competent staff. All we can say now is thank you so much to this venue for giving us the best day of our lives. And they even managed to swing us perfect weather, too! Please do choose this venue for your special day, you will be so happy you did.
From the first meeting they were amazing. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, but the team are what truly makes it. They are just wonderful, so professional but lovely, friendly and informative and always on hand to support with ideas and recommendations. I must have asked 100 questions in the build up, and was met every time with a quick response!
They go above and beyond in every possible way to make the day run smoothly, they acted as a real backbone to me and my husband both in the build up and on the day, and as a result, the day went perfectly. Even when things that happened (out of their control) like insane rainfall- they acted fast and smart. Between themselves and the caterers, they saw every single guest out of the ceremony in twos under umbrellas!
Nothing was too big of an ask or a trouble, and they did everything they could to make the day amazing. They have got both the set up and close down operation down to a tee, so everything runs smoothly. They are true professionals and you are in good hands.
We had a biggish wedding party, 106 day guests and it felt so lovely and intimate but not crowded in the barn. And everything is right where you need it, so it never feels like everyone is too spread out!
The surroundings are breath taking too, never mind the secret garden!
If you make the decision to book the Barn - you won't regret it.

10's across the board!
We had our big day a few weeks back and I could not picture getting married anywhere else.
The staff are so welcoming and made us feel at ease every step of the way! (even when my husband's suit split they were on hand with a sewing kit for us)
If you are looking for an intimate venue with amazing staff and stunning views then look no further than The Barn at Upcote.
The perfect venue
Lovely addition of a bridal suite, meaning you can stay on site the night of your wedding.
Really responsive to messages leading up to the day which meant my wedding anxiety was kept at bay!
Book Upcote, you won’t regret it 🥰
Look no further
We had not one, but two perfect days at Upcote, with our microwedding in April, followed by a reception in August. This is was in no part down to the team who work here - Hannah, Alice, Alice and Jennie made everything run smoothly and feel effortless. They are the friendliest, most helpful team and every time I spoke with them I was at ease. They communicate regularly and clearly, with no question considered too small.
The venue itself is light, airy and spacious, with lots of different areas to accommodate your needs. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery and so many spots where you can have romantic and intimate moments for photography. You can do lots to decorate if you want to but it really isn’t necessary as it is already so picturesque.
I really wish that we could have our days on repeat because I loved the feeling of butterflies I had every time I was at Upcote.
Thank you so much for everything...
We appreciate these times are not easy for you and so thank you again for being amazing! We cannot wait for the 'new' big day!
Our perfect day.
Thank you for making our wedding so special and helping us create our perfect day.
Best Day of our Lives... literally
We have had so many messages praising the venue and the setting. With our friends and family saying it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!
We felt stress free throughout the day, and had full trust in you to make sure everything was perfect, and it was — so we can’t thank you enough!
Love at First Sight
From the moment we laid eyes on the venue till the carriages took us home on the wedding day we were so impressed. The staff were there to help with every question and supported us through our planning. The day went perfect, the location is stunning and venue helped us create the relaxed feel we longed for. The guests were blown away with the whole day and we now have very fond memories to look back on.
We could not recommend the barn any more it is truly amazing. Thank you for everything you did for us. Just wish we could do it all again F&S. xxx
