The feel

Cripps Barn is an 18th-century Cotswold stone barn set in its own in lovely countryside by the Coln Valley. With its open fireplace and magnificent floors, it is an ideal place for a civil ceremony or a party.

The venue, which comfortably accommodates all wedding sizes has the option of getting married inside within the magnificent main barn, or outside under the gorgeous wooden ceremony shelter within the stunning garden glade.

The Cripps Barn team has run weddings for over 25 years and each couple works closely with our wedding coordinators to ensure they have their perfect day!

We are known for our whole BBQ’d lambs, sirloin steak bricks, or butterflied leg of lamb. Alternatively, you can have rotisserie chicken, suckling pig or duck as well as some fabulous vegetarian options. We only use the best ingredients and serve it simply -generally in a feast style on boards and in bowls to the centre of the tables.

Cripps is available from 1st February through to Christmas and offers a combination of advantages:

A captivating woodland glade with a ceremony shelter for Civil ceremonies.

A unique setting and atmosphere which makes for informal and relaxed events

The friendliness of a family business

A 1.00 a.m. licence.

A bonfire area

Free camping for guests
