Venue Setting

Cripps Barn is a lovely old Cotswold stone barn 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.

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.

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. 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.

There is free camping available in the next door field. We also have a back-up generator in case of power cuts.

Do come and have a look, give us a ring or drop us an email.

Venue Features
The Scene:

Civil Wedding Licence or Church Wedding 

We have a civil wedding licence so you can get married in the barn in the afternoon and follow on straight into your reception.

There are lots of churches local to Cripps, so if you choose to get married in a church, then you can still use Cripps Barn as your venue for your reception, wedding breakfast and evening party.

Outside Ceremonies

We have a beautiful oak ceremony shelter in the glade next to Cripps, which is also licensed for civil ceremonies.

An informal and relaxed location

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.

Make the most of your day

Most venues will close around midnight, just when everyone is really enjoying the party. At Cripps your hire period runs until 1.00 a.m., when the music stops and the bar closes.

Extra Perks:
With each wedding/event comes a personal wedding/event coordinator! 
We have a long list of decorations for clients to choose from to create their perfect event. These include a bonfire, lanterns, fire pits, tea lights, disco lights, gorgeous gardens with outside ceremony shelter. 
Eats & Drinks

Food, Restaurants, Cafes:

At Cripps Barn we buy only the best raw materials, regardless of cost (sorry, accountants!) and we then we hand them over to Head Chef who will deliver them to you, precisely cooked and served with the simplicity that such fine ingredients deserve.

At Cripps Barn our food is prepared and cooked on our 8-spit rotisserie, on our BBQ (in ANY weather) or with our own Smoker. Seated at round tables or long tables, eating in the barn or oak room, inside or outside, plated food, feast food or buffet …. you choose.

Bars & Lounges:

We provide a licensed bar which will be the only source of drinks after the meal.
The bar will close at 1 a.m.
Corkage option available.
