Introducing Healey Barn

Healey Barn was voted the UK’s Best New Venue 2016 in the Awards run by Hitched, Perfect Wedding and You & Your Wedding.

Located in the tranquil countryside near Corbridge in the Tyne Valley, Healey Barn offers beautiful, open views south across the surrounding landscape. Yet despite its rural location, the barn is less than 20 miles from the centre of Newcastle.

The Healey Barn buildings were converted by Cripps & Co in 2015 to create a luxury wedding venue. Retaining the charm and history of the original building, the barn works as well in the summer, with doors opening out onto a sunny courtyard, as it does in winter, with a large stone fireplace and underfloor heating.

Lit by over 100 flickering candles and the canopy of fairy lights woven into its oak ceiling, the Long Barn is the ideal setting for a ceremony. The barn can be transformed into a drinks reception and dance floor after the ceremony. Underfloor heating and a roaring fire at one end means the barn is comfortable all year round. The Long Barn can accommodate 140 guests for a ceremony and up to 200 evening guests for drinks and dancing.

With sweeping views over the Northumbrian landscape on one side and out into the courtyard, with its glow of twinkling lights, fire pits and lanterns, on the other, the Oak Room can accommodate 140 guests seated to dine.

Sheltered from the wind by barn buildings on all sides, our sun-filled courtyard provides a large additional space for post-ceremony drinks and an excellent location for wedding photographs. The courtyard is transformed at night with lanterns, fire pits and fairy lit trees.

Our wedding feasts receive as many compliments as the barn itself. We buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously. Food is flame-cooked from fresh ingredients on a huge BBQ and French rotisseries in full view of our guests. Menus are designed collaboratively with our in-house chefs.

The wedding team at Healey Barn are on hand to help organise everything from the big ideas to the last minute details.
