About

Cripps Barn is a lovely old Cotswold stone barn wedding venue set on its own in beautiful countryside near Bibury. It has flag stone floors, an open fire place and a large south facing terrace with fire pits and a bonfire in the garden.

A wedding party in a smart hotel can be impressive, but some people are looking for something more informal, more romantic, more rural, where children can run around, where you can have a bonfire, where your guests can camp instead of driving home, where it doesn’t matter if a drink is spilled and where the party can move outside in good weather. This is what we offer at Cripps Barn.

Cripps Barn is a small family run business and the barn is the original party barn of all the barns now run by the company. If it is a relaxed feel you want, with incredible food and great service, this is the place for you. You can get married in the barn or outside in our lovely woodland glade. After the wedding and the meal the barn makes the perfect place to party. You can dance the night away right up to 1.00 a.m. in the morning.

Venue hire starts from £1000, 3-course meal starts from £35 per person.

Dear Flora, Dave, Tina and the Cripps Barn Team, We are finding it difficult to put into words how to express our gratitude to you all for making our wedding day so magical and fun. Mike and I had the best day of our lives and everyone was saying how it was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever seen and the food was the best they had ever eaten too! Everyone we have dealt with were great especially Flora, who made sure the wedding was planned to perfection, Dave for keeping me relaxed in the Bentley on the journey to the barn and Tina, who was not only efficient but so so friendly and kept the day moving but without ever rushing us. On the day the barn was breath-taking; it was like walking into a Magical Winter Wonderland with the log fire roaring, endless fairy lights, fire pits and lanterns; and of course the espresso martinis also went down a treat! A great day was had by everyone and no job was too big or too small. You have made the whole wedding experience over the last year easy and enjoyable for us and we have the most amazing memories (and photos!)

We were married at Cripps on 5th November this year and it rained... and rained... AND RAINED! I can wholeheartedly say that it didn't matter a jot, the venue lent itself perfectly to a rainy wedding venue and we had an unforgettable day. From the beginning Cripps have been great at communicating and the online booking platform was just brilliant. The organisation was flawless on the day and there was always someone on site to speak to. If you fall in love with the venue on viewing the way we did then just go for it! You won't regret it :)
Mr and Mrs Walker
Thank you all for making our wedding day so special! It really was perfect - from the location, food, atmosphere and the weather even managed to work for us! A special thanks to Coren for making sure the day ran smoothly!

You won us over straight away with your accepting, non judgemental attitude guys. We went to view a number of prospective venues in Gloucestershire before we came to you and all were (not so subtly) surprised and taken aback that two women were potentially looking to get married at their venue. As soon as Karen and I walked in to Cripps, we knew it was the place we wanted to be for the biggest day of our lives. Babs was absolutely excellent in showing us around and making us feel welcome and totally at ease. And not an eyelid was batted because we were a same sex couple. We did indeed have the best day of our lives at Cripps and all of our family and friends loved every minute, as they still tell us often. Thank you for the memories. We couldn't recommend you highly enough as a gay wedding venue.

Thank you so much for a fantastic job on our wedding on Monday. The venue was perfect and Alice and the team were superb in keeping everything relaxed and taking all the pressure and uncertainty out of the proceedings. Many Thanks

We had the most amazing day, thank you and the team so much! Tina and Dave were both fantastic, I'll be sending little thank you cards over for them. It really was perfect - everything we'd hoped for. We honestly had so many compliments on the venue, everyone thought it was perfect.

We had an amazing day on the 19th. Everything from start to finish was simply perfect & our feet have only just started to touch the ground. Can we just say that we received so many positive comments throughout the day on the barn, the staff and everyone mentioned the quality of the food. Everything added to a truly memorable day and we would like to thank all the team for the most amazing day of our lives!
Anon
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all your staff for making our day so special last week. We both had a fabulous time and we couldn't have asked for anything more. The food was lovely and the venue looked beautiful, all of our guests were very happy too. Can you also please pass on my thanks to Danny, he was absolutely brilliant on the day.

Mixed review (put positive as it was only one thing that made the experience negative)
Not a Bride or Groom, but a guest, I had a wonderful day attending the wedding of a close friend recently and I had an amazing time, the venue was stunning and the food was great!
However, when it came to the meal my chair was the only one placed in sunlight (through a window) and I got a second degree sunburn from sitting in that sunlight for too long, I probably should have mentioned it earlier however I didn't want to hassle anyone as I know how bad it can be to rearrange tables and all of that kind of thing (I really wish I did as now I can't raise my arms and it hurts to even type this review). My partner noticed how bad my burns were and offered to swap seats and he could only cope being sat in that spot for about 10 minutes before it became unbearable to him.
Anyway that was partially my fault, the worst bit was when I went to the bar later on to get a drink, a bar lady (I don't remember her name) came over and before i could order my drink she handed me an ice cube and asked how long I had been in the sun, I told her only for the ceremony and the meal as my chair had been in sunlight, her response was to tell me it's impossible to get a burn through a window in a rather rude tone and
then walked off, bare in mind she still didn't ask what i wanted to order so I had to stand there for five minutes with a ice cube I didn't want and no drink until another bar tender came over. I later found out that you can get a sunburn through a window if you sit there for too long.

TLDR:
Great venue! However be careful of your seating arrangement and some times you get a free ice cube when you want to buy a drink if you get bad sunburns!
