“From the first time we stepped inside Stone Barn we fell in love with the place and were blown away by the service we received. From start to finish they made wedding planning so stress free and seamless, and because of their hard work we were able to have the elegant, chilled out, fun, happy day of our dreams.
We’ve had so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful location, helpful staff and the delicious food. “The most incredible venue”, “wow” and “the best wedding food we’ve ever had” are things we’ve heard more than once.
Clayton, the manager, and his team were exceptional - there whenever we needed them and super attentive, it felt like nothing was too much trouble.
Looking back, there is truly nothing we’d change about our Big Day and that’s in no small part down to Stone Barn, their staff, their food and the venue’s unsurpassed atmosphere. We’d not hesitate to recommend them.

“We had an incredible wedding day at Stone Barn last weekend. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and ensured everything ran totally smoothly. Our guests loved the canapés and the meal - there was loads and it was all delicious! The venue was absolutely beautiful, even though the weather wasn’t! If you’re in two minds about the venue, try visiting it in the dark as well as the day, because it’s just stunning in the evening, with the ceiling lights and fire pits adding that something special. The venue were also really helpful with suggestions for suppliers and things to include. We loved absolutely everything about the venue and day!
— Katie & Jonathan, March 2018
“Wow, what can we say! This venue is simply stunning and the staff, the food and the atmosphere that comes with it are amazing. From the very beginning Stone Barn was the perfect choice for us and the team there have been incredibly helpful. We had the most beautiful wedding and all of our guests completely fell in love with the venue and the surrounding area and we cannot thank you enough for making our day as fantastic as it was.
— Lois & Josh, March 2018
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and support last weekend. Your organisation of the whole event was amazing and all your colleagues were very calm and attentive, particularly Clayton who was our event manager on the day. He was really helpful and sorted out any of our queries no matter how small they were.
The venue and atmosphere was exactly what Hannah and Mark had hoped for. Our food was perfect and really high quality.
Many of Hannah’s family are Yorkshire farmers and so there was a lot of interest in the way you have developed the barn and the venue and much admiration for you.
I wish your business continued success.
— Mother of the Bride, March 2018
“What a wedding venue! Set in the beautiful Cotswolds and surrounded by rolling hills you’d be forgiven for thinking this was ‘just another Cotswold barn’. It isn’t. The moment we walked in were hit by such glowing warmth, an ethereal atmosphere and the faint wandering smell of fire and BBQ. The dutch barn with its ceiling of twinkling, hypnotising fairy lights and far reaching views, to the intimate, romantic stone barn provide the perfect contrast to one another. It’s such a versatile venue you can do nothing with, or fill it with all sorts of styled items and either way it will look and feel amazing.
For us, food was a very important part of our wedding. We weren’t disappointed. Serving dishes that are carved and served at the table provided such a great atmosphere and ice breaker for guests. It’s the kind of food we would serve to people in our home and for us this gave us a really relaxed, personal feel that we wanted. And can we just say it was absolutely scrumptious! We had so many compliments on the food – compliments to the chef indeed! Oh, and definitely go for the pizzas in the evening – nothing can beat dancing on the dance floor in your wedding dress (or suit) with a slice of pizza in hand!
But enough about the food, the fire, the lights, the building and the views. The staff at Stone Barn were truly exceptional. Correspondence was always quickly and comprehensively answered (so helpful when planning a wedding to be able to make decisions and finalise details quickly). Nothing was ever too much trouble. Staff were so attentive to our guests. On the day, Clayton and Sara in particular, were so professional and really looked after us making the day run effortlessly. They worked so hard but made it looked like a breeze and fun. Clayton and his team at stone barn have a real talent for helping people have the best day ever. Thank you!
— Abi & William, February 2018
“Thank you for making our wedding day perfect. From the first time we stepped inside Stone Barn, to our big day itself, you could not have been more professional but most importantly welcoming.
A special mention to Clayton and Flora who helped us decide that we couldn’t imagine having our reception anywhere else, and Jason and Nikki who were a delight leading up to our wedding and, of course, amazing on the day itself. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
After our wedding Rob asked me if there was anything I would change. We honestly said no from the bottom of our hearts. This is in large part down to all of you, the amazing team you are and the time and effort you have put in to sourcing suppliers who are just as amazing. Pia at Vanilla Pod Bakery and Beth at Go Wild Flowers were brilliant.
— Anna & Rob, January 2018
“Stone Barn is the perfect venue for a barn wedding in the Cotswolds. During the summer the grounds, outdoor fire pit, pagoda and views of the rolling countryside cannot be equaled. In the winter the fireplace, fairy lights covering the ceiling and under-floored flagstone floor heating make it the perfect cosey location for a winter wedding. We got more comments about the venue than anything else; everyone loved it! It was also helped that we had the perfect weather for a winter wedding; it snowed overnight just enough to stick but not so much that people struggled to travel there. The whole venue and setting was magical. The management team were also flawless from the very start of the process; from making a booking enquiry to after the wedding I cannot fault them. They were extremely responsive, very accommodating (everything from venue layout to dietary requirements) and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any of my engaged friends. If you want a barn wedding in the Cotswolds - I promise you won’t find a better venue or team to help look after one of the most special days of your lives.
— Hazel & Tom, December 2017
“Thank you for giving us a really beautiful wedding day. We have had nothing but amazing feedback from our guests. Best food, best atmosphere, venue, fireplace!
We will always hold a very special place in our hearts for Stone Barn.
— Zoe & Daniel, December 2017
“Thank you so much for providing the perfect setting for our big day, everything was absolutely perfect. A special thank you to Nikki, Jason and Clayton for everything running so smoothly and for such incredible food. You nailed it!
— Gayle & Simon, December 2017
“Thank you for making our wedding day perfect! Without your Barn, food and staff it would not have been possible. Everyone loved it. Your service was magical, and you helped the day run so smoothly. Thank you for replying to my 101 emails.
— Emma & Chris, December 2017
“Perfect all round - beautiful venue and exceptionally helpful staff, who made the day seem effortless and went above and beyond on everything. The food is superb.
— Philippa & Thomas, November 2017
“We had the best day ever! We are still on cloud 9.
— Katie & James, November 2017
“Amazing venue! As soon as we found it we knew it was the one. The prep up to the day was easy with the online log in. Both Cara and Nikki helped with all enquiries and helped make the day perfect. We got married 19th October and used the venue to its full potential using the fire for the ceremony and the fire pits outside. It looked gorgeous and really does have that wow factor. Jason did an amazing job with food, it was lush. Compliments all around.
— Katie & Wes, October 2017
“Magical venue. Nikki and Clayton were great, the food was amazing, we have had so many complements about the venue, staff and food from our guests. Wish we could do it all again. Thank you.
— Paul & Rosie, October 2017
“What can we possibly say but a massive thank you for absolutely everything you’ve done. Tuesday really was the perfect wedding.
We had so many people come up to us saying it’s the best one they’ve ever been to. Everyone loved the venue and Beth did an amazing job with her flowers.
— Steve & Rachael, October 2017
“We just wanted to take the time to say a huge thanks for making our wedding day so wonderful. Stone Barn is a beautiful venue, and we fell in love with it the moment we viewed it for the first time. Our whole experience from viewing, to planning, to the actual day was seamless and this is thanks to your incredible staff. We want to say a particular thanks to Clayton who was fantastic on the day. Stone Barn is clearly a very popular wedding venue and it speaks volumes that your staff still managed to make our wedding day feel so personal and not something mass produced.
One of the things that initially sparked our interest in the barn was the food on offer. We both share a love of cooking and eating generally and the food at the wedding did not disappoint. Everything was delicious and we’ve had so many compliments from our guests.
We really did just have the most incredible day and we can’t thank you enough.
— Ruby & Ashley, October 2017
“From the first time we saw the venue we knew it was the perfect place for us, and the subsequent meetings with Clayton and the team (and the amazing food tasting!!) cemented this in our minds.
We had the most wonderful day of our lives - from start to finish everything was completely handled by the team. We felt more like guests ourselves than hosts as we didn’t have to worry about a thing! All our friends and family had the most wonderful day too which was so important to us.
— Nell & Luke, September 2017
“Just a quick note to say a huge thank you. We, and our guests had an absolutely amazing day. We loved the barn from the moment we saw it and your team exceeded our expectations. The place is wonderful and you looked after our ‘big day’ so well.
— Lucy & Sarah, September 2017

“Thank you so so much for our beautiful wedding day.

— Lucy & Steve, August 2017
“We’d like to thank all of your team (including Riley and Cara) for putting on such a fantastic event last Thursday.

— Michael and Beeta, August 2017
“From the minute we walked in we knew Stone Barn was the perfect venue for our wedding. From that moment onwards the whole thing fell in to place and we, and our guests had a wonderful, happy day.

“5 stars is not enough for the team or the venue! From booking the venue nearly 2 years ago to arriving on the day, everything was so clear and easy. They remained in constant contact and the online portal made things so easy to ask any questions or check any pricing etc. On the day, the venue looked just beautiful and the team worked really hard to make it as stress free as possible and the food was delicious! I wish we could get married all over again. Thank you so so much for everything you did to make our day so special!
— Lucy & Steven, August 2017
“A huge thank you to all the staff on Saturday. They were totally amazing. They were magical people who you didn’t even realise were there, and just made the day go so smoothly. If someone asked for something they made sure they came back and found them. Everyone said how great they were.
Jason and Clayton were also fab. Clayton was so professional and just lovely to have there on the day. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to look after us. It was truly more than I could have hoped for. I felt so happy all day and that was partly because I felt in very safe hands.
— Emma and Chris, August 2017
“We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Cara, Clayton, Jason and the rest of your team. We had an amazing day, that went by without a glitch. We’ve had so many compliments on the venue, atmosphere and food. You really did out do yourself and we had the perfect time.
— Steph & Luke, July 2017
“We just wanted to say another massive thank you for making our wedding day so perfect, it was exactly as we imagined and better. We really couldn’t have asked for anything more! The venue is so beautiful and the weather happened to be perfect on the day, the food was amazing (we would have loved to take the leftovers home!) and all the staff were friendly and knew exactly what they were doing. A special thank you to Clayton for making the day go to plan and letting us know what was going on!
— May 2017
“We thoroughly enjoyed the feast evening back in February; the food was absolutely amazing and it’s made trying to choose what we’d like very difficult!
— May 2017
“We absolutely loved our day, the venue was superb. Clayton was brilliant at trying to sort our DJ out for us, and the food was gorgeous. Thank you so much.
— May 2017
It’s is somewhat hard to write a review of our experience of Stone Barn and the staff there without sounding clichéd, but it was truly a fantastic experience from start to finish. Having visited other venues, we were sold on Stone Barn within two minutes of walking through the door, the pictures online cannot do it justice. Even though we visited several times during the build-up, we were still taken aback by how good it looked on the day, and how the feel of the place changed. During the day it was light, open and spacious, but then as it got dark, the fairy lights, flares and fire pits all contributed to making it feel more intimate - it genuinely felt like we’d got two venues for the price of one. The staff too were excellent. Jason and Clayton, who met us on several occasions during the build up, were relaxed, friendly and approachable with a real attention to detail that put us at ease from the outset and was certainly a contributing factor in our deciding to choose Stone Barn. Thank you for such an amazing experience, we couldn’t be happier and could not recommend highly enough.
— May 2017
I just wanted to write a massive thank you to everyone at Stone Barn for the most wonderful wedding day! It really is the most stunning venue, the food is amazing and everyone is so friendly and helpful, I soooooo wish we could have our day again! I also wanted to say thank you for the recommended suppliers on your website because it led me to Beth for our flowers and she is amazing! and it meant we found Will as our DJ and he was awesome - we’re already hoping to book him again for my dad’s 60th birthday at the end of the year! I also wanted to pass on an extra thank you to Baz and Fred for the pizzas in the evening, not only were they delicious but I have recently been chatting to my Auntie and apparently they made her her own pizza on the night when she mentioned she was dairy intolerant - she was so chuffed! All in all, we had the perfect day and we’re very grateful.
— Apr 2017
“Where to begin... I think it’s probably easiest to bullet point this: - The staff and service are the most helpful and friendly people ever, hugely accommodating and passionate about what they do - a few to look out for: - Jason - head chef - knows his stuff, wonderful menu, delicious food. - Clayton - front of house - reassuring, friendly and excellent organisational skills to help run your day smoothly - All the people behind the “notes” system, answering our stupid questions and supporting us throughout planning! - The venue itself is absolutely stunning, well maintained and thoughtfully designed - we knew that it was where we wanted to get married from the second we stepped foot in there, and we hope you do too! - Very accommodating to different things - we had sparklers, crackers, smoke bombs, a bring-your-own cake table and temporary tattoos during the day, and Stone Barn worked to accommodate that. - Great at swapping out things - we wanted cocktails for reception instead of bubbly, and the team at Stone Barn made that happen (including buying all the mint for the Mohitos (my wife is called Chloe, so “MohiChlos”!), thank you!!!) A huge thank you from my wife and I to all at Stone Barn, we really appreciate all the support and assistance you gave us, and everything you did to make our day extra special!! Thinking about it is making me a little teary so I’m going to end this now, but thank you all so much. Thanks to all for your hard work, you made our wedding an absolute dream.
— Apr 2017
“Stone barn is simply stunning! Not only that but the meat for your wedding meal is cooked on open fires - we were sold in an instant!! It was everything we were looking for and absolutely perfect for our wedding day! The staff at Stone barn are so friendly and helpful, in all the notes, emails and questions leading up to the day and everything they do on the day to ensure it runs exactly how you want it to. We have had endless compliments from our guests on the beautiful venue, the incredible food and the wonderful staff. if only we could have our wedding day again, and if we did we wouldn’t hesitate to choose Stone barn again!!
— Apr 2017
“We had an amazing day on Thursday. Clayton, thank you so so much for your help, it was fantastic to have you there as Front of House - you did a great job of nudging us along and getting us to do the right things at the right time!! Can we also send a generic thank you to all of the Stone Barn staff that made our day extra special - everyone was superb and we really had a wonderful time. Thank you again for such a wonderful day that will stay with us forever, for all the support and assistance you and the team have given us whilst planning the wedding, and for enabling such a super day.
— Apr 2017
“Just a quick note to say thank you so much for an absolutely amazing day on a Saturday. We have multiple guests who say it was the best wedding that they have ever been to and so many fabulous comments about the venue and food. We will send a proper thank you when we get back from Honeymoon but huge shout out to Clayton and Jason who were fantastic.

— Apr 2017
“We could not have wished for a better venue or staff for our wedding and cannot recommend this venue or the company enough. They were a pleasure to deal with from the moment we booked, through to the day itself. They are willing to do anything they can to help you have the best day of your lives, and they do a great job of removing the stresses for you. Their staff run everything like clockwork and you hardly notice they are there until you need something! The food is fantastic - as good as some of the fine dining restaurants we have been to. In fact, we would still like to attend more of the feast nights if there are spaces for alumni! We would recommend hiring a band for the evening as the acoustics in the stone barn are superb: easily the best we (or our guests) have ever heard at a wedding venue. Thanks again for all you did. We will never forget our day and the huge part that your venue and staff played in it.
— Feb 2017
