One of the most popular wedding venues in Gloucestershire
Just a stone’s throw from Cirencester and the pretty village of Bibury, Cripps Barn lies in the picturesque Coln Valley. For a gloriously rustic-luxe country wedding, this 18th-century Cotswold stone barn with soaring beams and flagstone floors is perfect. Picture exposed stone walls adorned with greenery, large fireplaces, twinkling candles and the peace of the surrounding countryside. It’s the most wonderful setting for luxurious country weddings where romance takes centre stage.
Ceremonies take place in the main barn, a truly atmospheric and impressive space. The vaulted ceiling is adorned with a huge chandelier, wall-mounted candle sconces line the walls. It is ideal if you are planning a romantic ceremony by candlelight, and at one end there is also a fabulous open fireplace. After the ceremony you then step out onto the terrace overlooking the countryside. A beautiful start to your new life as a married couple.
For your wedding breakfast, the Oak Room can accommodate up to 150 guests. This beautiful room is both light and spacious, easily fitting any style of theme that you have chosen. The food and drink provided at Cripps Barn is a lavish affair. Their feasts cater to all dietary requirements and are cooked over the open flames of their signature BBQs and French rotisseries. They use the finest ingredients, and you can rest assured that none of your guests will leave unsatisfied.
In the evenings fire pits are lit outside so guests can spread out and mingle. Enjoy drinks under the stars and toast marshmallows as you make the day last as long as you can.
During the summer months you can celebrate your nuptials in the woodland glade. The oak ceremony canopy holds a license for civil ceremonies. Gathering your friends and family in this picturesque setting creates a magical atmosphere and you will of course cherish the memories for life.
