Full Description
Cripps Barn is the original wedding barn from the family-run Cripps & Co. Cripps Barn is an 18th century Cotswold barn, set in the heart of the countryside near Bibury in the beautiful Coln Valley. With its flagstone floors, rustic beams and roaring open fireplace, this historic building has been transformed to provide a wedding barn for all seasons. Ceremonies are held in the main barn, whose solid stone structure is finished with a medieval chandelier, a large stone fireplace, a huge candelabra and two huge entrances bringing light in from a large terrace on one side and the sun-filled Oak Room on the other. We can accommodate 120 guests in this room, with a further 30 guests seated in the Oak Room with a view through to the ceremony. Alternatively, we have an Oak Pavilion in a woodland glade in the gardens of the barn, for those wishing to hold their wedding ceremony outside in the warmer months. The grounds of Cripps Barn are as lovely as the barn itself and provide an excellent backdrop for wedding photography. A vast glass and timber door opens out onto a large terrace with views over the Cotswold countryside and onto our woodland garden, complete with fire pits and a large bonfire. Guests can eat in style in our light and spacious Oak Room, with further dining capacity in the Ceremony Room. We can accommodate 150 seated guests in the Oak Room and 84 seated guests in the Ceremony Room. Wedding feasts are created by our own chefs, who flame-cook food on a giant rotisserie and BBQ grill. We buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously. The main barn is transformed into a spectacular dance floor after dinner, where guests can celebrate into the night thanks to our special late 1 am license. Our on-site wedding team are on hand to help with everything from the big ideas to the last minute details.
