The Barn At Upcote

Jo and Andrew are the proud owners of The Barn at Upcote.  Over 25 years ago, they were married in the local village church and held their wedding reception at the farm. They are now delighted to be able to allow wedding couples the opportunity to hold their weddings in such a beautiful and secluded location.

They took a set of old farm buildings 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.

The existing barns have been lovingly restored and some new contemporary buildings built to complete the courtyard.  Jo and Andrew are now excited to share these beautiful facilities with couples on their special day and leave them with memories that will last a lifetime.

It is up to you to decide how you use the barns, to make your day as special and unique as possible. Combining beauty with flexibility you can create a wedding that lives long in the memories of your families and friends. You can decorate the barns to your taste to make your wedding totally your own.

The Barn at Upcote can accommodate up to 100 guests for ceremonies and the wedding breakfast in the Threshing Barn. Afterwards, over 150 guests can be accommodated for the evening’s entertainment.

The flexible set of buildings provides you with an opportunity to decide exactly how you set up your wedding breakfast.

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.

Parking is not a problem either, with more than enough space for all your guests and their cars. Mini-buses and coaches can be accommodated too.

The professional team at The Barn at Upcote will always be at your disposal to deliver the event of your dreams.

Jo and Andrew are so proud of the bridal suite, it’s the perfect place for the bridal party to get ready, with lots of space and wonderful, modern, comfortable facilities. This romantic bridal suite is also perfect for the wedding couple to spend their first night.

Additional accommodation is also available on request.

Maybe it’s the feeling of being away from everywhere… maybe it’s the beautiful view as you drive up to The Barn at Upcote… or the sheep grazing in their pastures… or the chickens and peacocks scratching around. It’s probably 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.
