• Gloucestershire wedding venue

Welcome to The Barn at Upcote

Situated on a family run farm, The Barn at Upcote has hosted parties, functions and barn dances for the last 40 years. Where flexibility, friendliness and a relaxed but professional atmosphere come together so you can take away memories that will last a lifetime. We aim, to help you create the day of your dreams, whatever the occasion, whether it’s a wedding, special birthday or baby naming ceremony. 

The Location

You’ll find us tucked away at the end of a long drive, in the beautiful Cotswold Hills, perfectly located between Cheltenham, Oxford and Cirencester, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Barn at Upcote is part of a stunning set of buildings that have been lovingly restored, with attention to detail and thought for the past but with the convenience of all things modern. Hidden away down a long private road, The Barn at Upcote has a unique outlook over a beautiful Cotswold valley and the local farm.

The Barns

Our main barn – the Threshing Barn – was untouched and still used as a working farm building until 2014. It has a special atmosphere all of its own and a beauty that is hard to find. A wonderful building to get married in and celebrate after the ceremony. It’s fully equipped with underfloor heating, lighting and sound systems; a harmonious mix of old and new.

Our newly built barn, the Sheep Shed, is built on the footprint of the old lambing shed. It contains a well-stocked bar, and provides the perfect place to have drinks and greet your guests after the ceremony. Our bridal suite, the Hay Barn, is conveniently located and provides some beautiful accommodation for the bride and groom, and a place to get ready. The old Grain Store, now ready to dance the night away. Finally, the Cart Lodge, restored back to an open fronted building, where people can sit outside and take in all of the day’s happenings.

What makes us different?

Maybe it’s the feeling of being away from everywhere… maybe it’s the beautiful view as you drive up to the barns… or the sheep grazing in their pastures… or the chickens and peacocks scratching around. We like to think it’s a combination of all of this, and the guarantee of the friendliest of welcomes with real flexibility on your big day. All of this with the most beautiful buildings means that The Barn at Upcote is truly unique.
