Hay Barn Suite

The Hay Barn Honeymoon Suite is situated within the Barn courtyard for easy access. It is the perfect place for finishing off getting ready, with lots of space and comfortable facilities in easy reach. You can escape for a quiet moment during the day, and it’s available for your first night as a married couple too. 

The suite is included within our hire charges, and it is available for access from 11 am on the day of your wedding to 10 am the next day. We also drop off a continental breakfast for the next morning!

Getting Ready in the Morning

Before the Honeymoon Suite is available for you to access at 11am, your hair / make up artists may want to begin preparations. 

Whilst some of our brides and grooms start getting ready at their accommodation where they are staying the night before (making that early morning a bit easier), we do also have the wonderful option of The Bridal Prep Rooms nearby, a stunning bespoke studio designed for early morning wedding preparations! For more information, email:  theteam@thebridalpreprooms.co.uk

When you’re getting ready, our team at the Barn will be setting up the venue and placing your decorations around in conjunction with your suppliers. This means the venue will be ready for your guests to arrive, and you don’t have to worry about anything apart from getting dressed! 

End of the Night

At the end of the night for your guests we have a number of local taxis and buses that visit the venue often.

We also have the option of some glamping onsite for a few guests – ask the team for more information on what might be available on your date.

As we are so close to a number of towns, in particular Cheltenham which is 10 minutes away, most of our wedding guests book one of the many local accommodation options available. We do also have large minibuses and coaches visit us frequently, which are a great option if you are thinking that you want to provide your guests with assistance in reaching the venue whilst they arrange their own accommodation.

While you say goodnight to your guests, our team are packing down your decorations and items into your dedicated storage so that you don’t need to worry about the clearing or cleaning!
