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
Venue Service

By Rhys & Harriet, on 02 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018

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
Venue Service

By James & Victoria, on 15 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2018

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!
Venue Service

By Pam & Craig, on 15 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2018

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
Venue Service

By Jon Lock and Lucy Brown, on 22 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jan 2018

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
Venue Service

By Keira Roe-Pearce and Gavin Roe-Pearce, on 11 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

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!

Stunning Cotswold venue with personalised service
Venue Service

By Joe Noel, on 08 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2017

You have to visit the venue to fully appreciate how stunning it is. The long drive gives way to a beautiful 'quad', surrounded by the main barn, the grain store and the bridal suite - all immaculate in Cotswold stone. All you can see from the venue is the surrounding hills and it's hard to believe you're only 15 minutes from Cheltenham. Once we'd decided to have our wedding there we received great service. The small team give off the impression of being relaxed but still on top of all the details. They were able to handle all of our requests and put us at ease that they could make sure everything would go smoothly. There were no hidden costs or extra services - everything was included in the initial price. On the day everything was handled brilliantly. The staff seem to be invisible but are behind the scenes making sure that everything happens as agreed. They liaised with the registrars, photographer, caterers and band which meant that we could enjoy our day with our friends and family.

Beautiful Barn and the Best Day Ever!
Venue Service

By mark rushby, on 30 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2017

The Barn at Upcote is a beautiful venue in the Cotswolds. We visited several venues in the area before settling on this one and we chose the Barn because of its laid back vibe and the fact everything is there in the one location and it is decorated to look gorgeous. All of our guests commented on how beautiful and unique the venue is and on the day the space really came into its own. We cannot praise Hannah, Andrew and Jo enough for their support in the run up to the wedding. This is a beautiful space with real wow factor and they helped make the day personal to us and were supportive of making all our ideas happen. They were also brilliant to deal with. We visited the venue a number of times ahead of the wedding and asked hundreds of questions but nothing was too much trouble. On the day itself they ran the bar expertly and interacted with our Musicians, photographer, creche and caterers expertly to make everything run perfectly with no fuss at all. We had the best day ever and we cant thank the Barn at Upcote enough for making the day so special (in a rain filled August they even made the Sun shine for the day). This was the perfect venue. Thank you so much. Chloe and Mark.

Perfect place for a country wedding!
Venue Service

By Beth and Joe Pettican, on 30 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Mar 2017

We had a wonderful wedding at The Barn at Upcote. Jo, Andrew and Hannah were excellent not only on the day but also on the run up. They were always available for a chat, for us to pop in and measure something or just discuss details for the day. They allowed us to make it our own for the day and have the spring country wedding we really wanted. We had the whole day at the venue - set up, ceremony, reception and evening party which made it really easy for guests (and us) to maximise celebrations. It is a wonderful setting in the Cotswolds and the period features of the barn and general surrounds were great for pictures. Their staff were fantastic and their catering vender Birch was amazing. I can see why they are recommended by the Barn. Thank you again for a perfect day!

Beautiful venue for a truly bespoke experience
Venue Service

By Michelle Gregory, on 14 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 17 Sep 2016

We got married in September 2016 at Upcote Barn. We planned the whole thing with Jo and Andrews help from engagement to marriage in 4 months. They left no stone unturned and the end result was an unforgetable day for us both which we were amazed by given the time frame. It is an incredible venue that was so versatile allowing us to put on the dream "festival" wedding centred around the beautiful courtyard with inside activities in the equally stunning renovated barns for when it was a bit chillier later on. The beauty of the venue for us was that we could do anything with it. It meant we could truly have the style of wedding we wanted, with caterers, photographers and entertainment all bespoke to us. Jo and Andrew were very open to all of our weird and wonderful ideas. The venue needed very little decoration as it has been very sympathetically renovated to maintain the lovely cotswold stone and oak features. It looks fab in all of our pictures....and there are many lovely spots for pictures!! Our guests were blown away which made it all the better for us. Jo and Andrew ran the day seamlessly with their team so we didn't need to get involved at all on the day and could just enjoy the celebrations. Communication running up to the event was spot on, all of our queries were answered within a matter of a few hours. It made for a very stress free experience. Would very highly recommend....who knows, we might be back for our silver anniversary one day!!

An Incredible Venue & a Wonderful Team
Venue Service

By Julia Chesney-Roberts, on 03 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2016

We got married at The Barn at Upcote on 2nd September 2016. The venue is just stunning - beautifully refurbished Cotswold stone barns set amongst lush countryside. Our guests were so impressed by the venue and we have received such wonderful compliments. It was great that the venue isn't just one big barn but a collection around a small grassed courtyard; as ours was an all day wedding - this allowed us to move activities and events during the day around the venue. From the moment we met Andrew and Jo we were so impressed by their friendly, approachable and professional attitude - nothing was too much trouble. Communication was great and they made the arrangements totally hassle free. On the day Andrew, Jo and the Team were brilliant running around making everything seem so effortless - everything went perfectly and we had just the best wedding day we could imagine - and we know no small part of that was down to the venue and the team at The Barn at Upcote. Can't recommend them enough!
