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.
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.

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!
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 unforgettable 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!!
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!
We visited Upcote barn as the first venue on our search for our wedding venue. From the moment we drove down the driveway the image we were presented with make us love it straight away. As we walked down the steps I could imagine already my guests gathered on the grass and everyone enjoying themselves. The venue definitely has the wow effect and is all centred around the main barn as a focal point. Meeting Andrew and working out a date, we were excited that this was going to be our venue and we got planning. From then on the whole team were always on hand to answer questions and try their very best to accommodate our needs. As the days drew closer we were able to visit and measure things which was really useful. The venue truly has that family feel to it and we were really well looked after.
On the day things ran so smoothly thanks to their function sheet which enabled them to know what was going on and when- it also helped us! They were there all day ensuring the day was perfect but were so subtle that you didn’t realise how hard they were working. It was the best day of our lives and without Jo, Andrew and the team it could not have gone so smoothly. A special mention to Katie and Hannah who were always there on email and our numerous visits to help our every need. Even after the wedding.
Once again, Upcote barn is the perfect wedding venue and one that made our day the best it could be. Thanks again! Xx

Omg......what can I say?? An absolutely amazing venue it made our day utterly perfect and the staff were faultless. Andrew and Hannah were always there to help on the run up to the day and then did everything they could on the day!! I would love to relive it all again and have the pleasure of spending more time at The Barn @ Upcote
We had our wedding reception at The Barn at Upcote last month and it was great! The venue is beautiful and has lovely surroundings, whilst it also offers several different spaces that can be used -all of our guests commented on how wonderful the venue and setting was. Jo and Andrew and their team were brilliant, both on the run up to the wedding (answering all of our questions and nothing was too much trouble) and on the day itself (thanks to Hannah too!). Thanks to your friendly and flexible approach we were able to have a perfect, relaxed and fun day, exactly how we had wanted it to be. Would highly recommend this venue to all!
We held our wedding here last Saturday and it couldn't have gone better. Jo, Andrew and the team have been so helpful throughout the planning process and were fantastic on the day.
The venue is beautiful and has everything you need for both the ceremony and the reception, and Jo and Andrew have a great list of suppliers so if you are stuck on certain elements of your wedding, they're sure to know someone who can help you.
Thank you to the team for all your hard work, and for making the day so stress-free for me and my now husband!
