Our Story

Jo and Andrew are the proud owners of The Barn at Upcote.

Over 25 years ago, Jo and Andrew were married in the local village church and held their wedding reception at the farm. They are now delighted to be able to share with wedding couples the opportunity to hold their weddings in such a beautiful and secluded location.

With a background in designing gardens, to starting new businesses, to working in large companies both in UK and abroad, Jo and Andrew have used all of this accumulated knowledge and experience to create this stunning new venue in the Cotswolds.

We are passionate about each wedding that we host here at The Barn and we love that every single one is different – we’re here to help you translate that excel spreadsheet / Pinterest Board / word document into your perfect day and we love it! We’re also massive fans of cake and any sugary treats so feel free to pop by for a chat and cup of tea with a biscuit!

How it evolved

They took a set of old farm buildings, many full of rustic farmyard equipment and imagined how they could create the ideal wedding venue for couples. They were passionate about wanting to offer facilities that combine beauty with flexibility, giving wedding couples the chance to decide how they could make the wedding day of their dreams.

What was created?

They found a wonderful building company, Leckhampton Builders Ltd, who have a long experience of converting old Cotswold buildings and have lovingly restored the existing barns and created some new contemporary buildings to complete the courtyard.

They added their personal touches, including some elegant planting, an impressive willow fence that creates a fantastic backdrop for photos and some lovely furniture for the bridal suite.

They continue to be excited to share these beautiful facilities with couples on their special day and leave them with memories that will last a lifetime.
