    Absolutely Amazing!

    We cannot possible recommend The Barn at Upcote any more if we tried!

    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.

    Thank you!!
    Mr & Mrs Beesley xx

    10's across the board!

    Words can not describe how perfect this venue is. We first viewed the barn back in November 2019 and fell in love with it the moment we saw it even in the pouring rain.
    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.

    Look no further

    If you are planning a Cotswolds wedding and you’re looking for a venue, THIS IS IT!

    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.

    Our perfect day.

    From the first time my husband and I visited The Barn we knew that was the place we were going to get married. The staff were friendly, helpful and so lovely, giving us lots of information and answering all our questions from booking the venue to the day we got married. The Barns and grounds are beautiful and everything we wanted for our Autumn wedding.
    Thank you for making our wedding so special and helping us create our perfect day.

    Love at First Sight

    Wow where do a start! It was love at first sight for us with the Barn at Upcote.
    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

    The best day of our lives

    Our families and I just can't thank you enough: you 100% delivered the best day of our lives. The barn looked stunning, every detail was remembered and the day flowed so smoothly. Beyond the day itself, we are so grateful for your impeccable organisation and patience. You are so approachable and lovely - you gave us much of your time and made us feel so welcome. Our guests felt this too and most have gone out of their way to tell us what a beautiful, relaxed and happy day our wedding was. That is down to you. Thank you. Thank you for all the extras, above and beyond you did for us - the fairy lights, decorating my (very rustic!!) cake, organising the fire pit...you really looked after us.

    Beautiful

    We cannot thank the staff at Upcote enough for helping to make our wedding day perfect. The site means a lot to us because of 2000 trees festival but when we visited the venue we were blown away by how stunning it was. Everyone commented on the beautiful venue and the day felt very intimate and relaxed and everything went so smoothly because of the hard work of the team behind the scenes. Communication was very easy in the run up and we could visit the site as often as we wanted. Thank you to the whole team for helping to create our perfect day. We will miss visiting you!

    Happiest day

    We knew within 10 minutes on our 1st visit that this was the venue for us. Promptly booked and paid the deposit before having a proper look around. The venue is simply stunning. Everything we ever dreamed of in a wedding venue. Organising our big day was a very enjoyable experience and that's down to Hannah, Katie, Sally and the team. All our guests were amazed at the venue and commented on how lovely the staff were. We will miss visiting The Barn at Upcote. We'll be back to renew our vows!

    Perfect venue!

    As soon as we turned into the driveway and drove towards the barn we knew this would be the perfect venue for our wedding. After looking around we fell in love with it even more the scenery and the barn is just beautiful. Everyone here at Upcote have been fantastic. We could view the barn anytime we needed and nothing was ever too much for the team they were always at the end of emails too. The location is just perfect and so secluded which made our wedding photos just fabulous. The day itself ran so smoothly which I never doubted it wouldn't because everyone works so hard. We can't thank you enough for all you did for us. I will miss popping by to the venue we loved it so much.
