We just wanted to send a quick message to you all to say thank you so much for making our wedding run so smoothly. We had the best day of our lives, literally! We have had so many messages praising the venue and the setting. With our friends and family saying it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! We felt stress free throughout the day, and had full trust in you to make sure everything was perfect, and it was — so we can’t thank you enough!

Love at first sight
Wow where do a start! It was love at first sight for us with the Barn at Upcote. From the moment we laid eyes on the venue till the carriages took us home on the wedding day we were so impressed. The staff were there to help with every question and supported us through our planning. The day went perfect, the location is stunning and venue helped us create the relaxed feel we longed for. The guests were blown away with the whole day and we now have very fond memories to look back on. We could not recommend the barn any more it is truly amazing. Thank you for everything you did for us. Just wish we could do it all again F&S. xxx Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope were not too much of a pain to deal with.

Venue location is stunning.
I had a privilege to photograph wedding at Upcote in August. The day went very smoothly because of the hard work of the team behind the scenes, not to mention the venue location which is just stunning. Look forward to photograph here again. All the best, Martin Dabek Photography

We were blown away!
We first viewed The Barn on a frosty December morning in 2016. We were blown away on first sight; the long sweeping driveway on the approach to The Barn give it a private and exclusive feel, the Cotswold stone barns are set around a pristine courtyard and grassed lawn with uninterrupted views of the surrounding fields. We were met by the owner, Andrew, having called him 30 minutes earlier to arrange a viewing. His friendly, relaxed and professional manner made us feel welcome as he showed us around The Barn. My fiancé and I looked at one another and immediately knew this was the venue at which we would be married – we booked for August 2018. The communication from Andrew, Jo, Hannah and Katie for the following 18 months was great, always replying to emails promptly, answering our many questions and meeting us for a chat at The Barn. Our big day was perfect, Katie and the team worked seamlessly to ensure every aspect of the day was just right. We decided to have the ceremony, wedding breakfast, and our evening band in the main barn which gave the team a challenging task of turning the room around in a short time-frame, this was done without us even noticing whilst our guests enjoyed a drink and some games on the lawn. Our guests have all commented on how beautiful the venue was and we all thoroughly enjoyed our day. The setting of The Barn with its beautiful gardens and surrounding fields made for stunning photographs including one with The Barn's peacock! We cannot recommend The Barn enough to anyone looking for a beautiful, well-managed and unique wedding venue. Thank you again to all the team for making our day so perfect
