Hello and welcome to The Barn at Upcote!

We want you to decide how you use the barns, to make your day as special and unique as possible. Flexibility and a relaxed & friendly but professional atmosphere come together to help you make memories to last a lifetime.

Your photographer will be spoilt for choice, with many opportunities available to capture the day, from your couple photographs to group shots with your nearest and dearest.

We can accommodate both intimate and larger weddings of 100+ guests for your ceremony and wedding breakfast, and then we have room for over 150 guests for the evening’s entertainment.

Your Ceremony

We are licensed by Gloucestershire County Council to hold weddings and civil partnerships in our Threshing Barn. Just call us to discuss your needs and we can advise you on the next step.

You’ll need to agree your ceremony date and time with the Superintendent Registrar, which can be done by calling Gloucestershire County Council Registrar on 01452 425060.

You can also find more information on their website www.gloucestershireregistrationservice.co.uk

Please note for after your ceremony we are happy for petals and bubbles to be used as confetti. We do not allow the use of non-biodegradable or rice paper confetti.

Your Reception

Our flexible set of buildings provides you with an opportunity to decide exactly how you structure your day following your ceremony.

You can start with drinks in the Sheep Shed, move to the Threshing Barn for a sumptuous meal and then dance the night away in the Grain Store.

Alternatively, you may wish to hold a drinks reception in the courtyard, and then move into the Threshing Barn for your meal, or the cosier area in the Grain Store for a more intimate meal.

You could have a hog roast or barbecue on the gravel area next to the Grain Store and eat outside on a warm summer’s evening. There are also plenty of places for children to play but remain close by and safe.

You can have round or trestle tables for your meal, which can be configured to your own particular arrangement.

We wanted to thank you for everything you did for us to give us a perfect wedding. You were so supportive and responded quickly to everything we asked along the way.

We had so many compliments about the venue, it really is beautiful, and we wish you lots of success. From the moment we came we knew this was the venue for us, we love everything about it! Thanks in particular for your support on the day, the weather caused some last minute changes which you handled brilliantly.


Thank you all so much for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. The whole day was more than we could have wished for and everything went without a hitch!
