    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.

    Best Day of our Lives... literally

    We just wanted to send a quick email to you all to say thank you so much for making our wedding run so smoothly. We had the 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

    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

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope were not too much of a pain to deal with.

    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!

    The Perfect Venue

    e Barn at Upcote was the perfect venue for our wedding, and we had countless comments about how beautiful the venue was and also quite a few saying this is now where they want to get married.

    The whole planning process was made easy and the day ran without a hitch which is credit to all of your staff. We had the most amazing time.

    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.

    Genuinely, just a perfect day

    We really can't thank the staff at the Barn enough. Both on the day itself, and in the year leading up to it, everyone at the Barn was an incredible source of calm words, sound advice and reassurance. We never doubted that our wedding was in safe hands, and the day went perfectly. We didn't even have to think about the logistics of moving people around, changing the rooms over etc, as the team at the Barn handled everything. Truthfully, they made our day perfect. From the moment we first saw the venue, we knew that this was where we wanted to get married. After our wedding, we knew we'd made the right decision. Cannot recommend enough. A beautiful venue and a fantastic team. Thank you.

    Wonderful rural wedding venue

    From first booking, through all the planning and to the very day, the whole team at Upcote were amazing! So helpful and friendly. They felt like family by the time we said goodbye.
    With the Barn being in it's own courtyard and off the main road, it felt like our own private land for the day.
    A perfect venue, wonderful people and all of our family and friends at our wedding said it was the best wedding they had been to.
    Our caterers - Birch Catering were so much more than just our caterers, providing help from the planning of our menu to setting up with us the day before.
    Then Maddie, one of the girls when helping beautifying my bridesmaids and I before the ceremony. We all felt amazing and Maddie really helped us feel excited and not at all nervous.
    We are now looking to any excuse to have another party so we can book at Upcote again!

    Thanks for helping us make our day the most amazing day for us and our guests!
