Thank you all for helping us to have one of the best days of our lives. We cannot thank Jodie, and all of the team, enough for helping our wedding day run so smoothly. Everything was covered, and we really didn’t have to worry about anything. The food was amazing, we have had enless compliments. Ali & Rob - Nov 2017
We got married at Cripps Barn and the day was perfect. It was the only venue my husband would even entertain the idea of looking at. The staff were amazing and attentive, the booking system is easy, and so is communicating with the team. What more do you want than to get married by a fire, eat huge food portions (get the dauphinoise potatoes!) and dance the night away in a stunning barn. Sammy & Michael - Nov 2017
Cripps was the first and only venue we looked at when finding somewhere to get married and after Sunday it is clear why we did not look any further. Sunday was by far the most amazing day we could have ever asked for, absolute perfection and it was all down to the team at Cripps. Lucy was amazing, trekked all the way up to the back field in the cold just to bring myself and Ben some canapés. Dave was brilliant in the evening and made sure I always had some wine. Every single guest could do nothing but compliment Cripps. They keep telling us how wonderful the food was (and it was!) and how beautiful the barn is. Thank you to the entire Cripps team. Sophie & Ben - Nov 2017
My daughter was married here, it was an absolutely delightful day. This venue is truly amazing. The whole day from start to finish was exquisite, from the moment we arrived, to the saying thank you and good bye. The meal was amazing, very professional with a relaxed feel. The scenery is stunning, from daylight to dusk the lighting was perfect. Elaine (Mother of the Bride) - Nov 2017
We had the most amazing time and can’t thank you, and your staff, enough. Every single person commented how amazing the venue was and how incredible the staff were. We were left wanting for nothing. Lucy, thank you so much for standing outside in the cold with me and Heather offering us the canapes, that was very kind of you and you didn't need to do that, but another detail that just made the day so special. The food, again, was incredible. Also, a thank you from my parents for sorting all our bits out the next morning, you made the whole process very easy and stress free. We would, and will highly recommend the venue to anyone we know getting married going forward. Heather & Sean - Nov 2017
Cripps Barn is the perfect venue! The barn is cozy, warm and rustic and the grounds are lush and beautiful. All our guests were raving about how magical it was. The food and drinks are delicious. Most importantly, the Cripps team is top notch! They are professional, organized, creative and flexible. They went above and beyond to turn our ideas into reality. It never took them longer than 24 hours to respond to an email, which I have found to be extremely rare in the wedding industry. Thank you so much to everyone at Cripps. Caity & Charlie - Nov 2017
It was an absolutely amazing day and it really was the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect - the outside ceremony, the food, staff, the beautiful venue and of course Lucy's help in making sure everything went as smoothly as it did on the day. A lot of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have been to! It really was amazing so thank you again for making our day one that we will never forget. Lucinda & Dan - Oct 2017
Cripps Barn was the first and only venue we visited when planning our wedding. It was everything and more than we could have wanted. The grounds are just breathtaking, and the inside is just magical. The team were great and so patient with all our questions during the planning process and keeping in touch with them was super easy with their online system, meaning we got responses very quickly, usually within the hour! On the day, the staff were so professional. The guests all commented on how friendly and helpful they were and of course how incredible the venue looked. The food, well that was just out of this world. So so tasty, all the guests practically licked their plates clean. The choices available are amazing and it took us ages to whittle it down to what we had. We couldn't recommend Cripps Barn enough and encourage anyone who is looking for a venue to consider Cripps for your wedding, we promise you won't regret it! Amy & Sam - Oct 2017
We cannot thank Cripps Barn enough. We had the most amazing day. From the very start when we came to look around, to booking - everything was so easy. They were fantastic at helping us organise the most perfect day. They were always quick and efficient at replying to our questions. The feast night they organise to try the delicious foods was good fun too! Jodie was absolutely fantastic on the day, everything was exactly how we wanted it. She was so great even our little page boys took a shine to her! She went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day, thank you, The food was absolutely incredible, every single member of our party commented on how much food there was and how delicious it was, so huge shout out to the chefs. Baz and Fred pizza's in the evening also went down extremely well. The setting of the beautiful barn, the string quartet, reception drinks, canapés, food, decorations, ambiance was everything and more. We could not have wished for a more perfect day, thank you so much again. Celine & Jon - Oct 2017
Cripps Barn was the absolute dream! Not just because of the breathtaking Cotswold surroundings and not just because venue is so stunning you barely need to do anything with it, or because the food is out of this world.... It's the team that will ultimately give you your perfect day! They were amazing from day one, they made planning the wedding so easy and stress free. On the day everything ran like clockwork thanks to them. We didn't have to think of a thing and both got to really enjoy every second of our day. Cripps Barn was the only venue we viewed, after we looked around we knew nowhere else would compare and we weren't let down! Booking your wedding at Cripps will be the best decision you make! The second best decision would be using their amazing list of suppliers - we booked Beth Cox as our florist, Emily Tarrant for bridal makeup and Sheena for hair.... they were all equally incredible and I can't recommend highly enough. Cripps Barn is such a beautiful venue but Beth's flowers made it. If you've seen photos on the Cripps website of incredible hanging floral arrangements, chances are she did them, she's just amazing! Thank you so much to the whole Cripps team, I will miss everything about planning our day, you guys were amazing. Camilla & Chris - Oct 2017
We recently got married here and cannot thank all the staff involved enough from start to finish. Any questions we had were answered with ease from very friendly professional staff. Cripps barn is an absolutely stunning venue, and the food is also amazing. Abigail & Gary - Sep 2017
Wow, what an amazing wedding day we had. It was above and beyond anything we had ever dreamed of. Alice.... or maybe Super Alice... thank you for all your meticulous care with everything. Flora, thank you so much for your help too. You guys are all total superstars, so a big thanks to all staff, chefs and Cara and Dave who were there so much too. Beth did a superb job at turning the already stunning Cripps Barn into a breathtaking setting for our special day. We had no doubt in you all delivering a fantastic day but you all literally thought of everything and executed it all so perfectly which is such a skill. Mega impressive! Gabrielle & James - Sep 2017
Thank you for everything you guys have done for us. Right from the initial meeting you provided us with information that we had written down to ask with no prompting from us. Once we had booked if we had any questions for queries they were answered straight away on the online portal. The service on the day was fantastic, a big thank you to Jodie who had everything under control from the minute she arrived to the minute she left, nothing was too much trouble for her. The staff who handed out the canapes, presented the food to the table were all friendly and polite with constant smiles on their faces, a lot of people commented on how well presented your staff were. Dave the bar manager was fab, again nothing was too much trouble for him or his staff. The way the Oak Room was laid out was exactly what we wanted and you guys did it perfectly. Abi & Daniel - Sep 2017
Saturday was absolutely perfect, we couldn't of asked for a more incredible day and we would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and your team for everything you did to make our day so special. Amy & Sam - Sep 2017
Brilliant Venue, Brilliant Team, Brilliant Day! Gareth and I fell in love with Cripps from the minute we entered the car park. Every step we took after that just continued to confirm that this was the perfect venue for us. From the beautiful setting in rural surroundings, the magical glade and the fairytale forest, we didn't think it would be possible to impress us more, but the moment we set foot inside the barn we were completely taken aback. The amazing bare stone work, the roaring fire. Just the most romantic setting. Then we met our amazing wedding planners. Throughout the last 12 months we have spoken with nearly every member of the Cripps team and every one of them have been an absolute joy to work with. Right up until our last guest left they have made every step as easy as possible for us. For what you get, the venue offers fantastic value for money and whilst it is a little out of the way, many of our guests loved camping in the nearby field, and we stayed in the nearby Casina Cottage (part of the Cripps group) and that only added to our special day. We cannot thank everyone at Cripps enough for giving us the most incredible day of our life and we are completely confident that every single person that has gotten married either in the glade, or in the barn, will have had the time of their lives. Susannah & Gareth - Sep 2017
Chloe and I could not have wished for a more perfect day, and this was all down to the team at Cripps Barn. The venue is stunning; and we fell in love with it as soon as we arrived to view it. Throughout the planning process we felt completely supported by Flora and the rest of the team, who were there to answer any question we had either on the telephone or through their easy to use online system. We were extremely lucky with the weather on the day itself, yet despite the beautiful outdoor surroundings we decided to tie the knot inside the barn in front of a roaring fire, and it was fantastic. During the day we were looked after by Jodie, who took everything in her stride and was indispensable with her help, and her calm and professional manner (especially when the groom was running around like a headless chicken in the morning!). All guests were raving about the food; we believe it is by far the best meal we have ever had at a wedding, and the pizza in the evening by Baz and Fred was very well received! All in all, Cripps Barn is a fantastic venue for a wedding and we could not have wished for a more perfect and stress-free day. Chloe & Jack - Sep 2017
Thank you so much for making sure our day ran smoothly and for making everything perfect. We truly had the most amazing day in the most amazing place. We have had so many compliments about the food, right through from starters to the evening buffet. The vegetarians and vegans all said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Sandra & Jamie - Sep 2017
Both Alex and I fell in love with Cripps Barn from the moment we first went to see it. It's a really special place with a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Both the barn and grounds are absolutely beautiful, and once the whole place was aglow with twinkly lights and candles and covered in flowers, it honestly felt magical - the perfect setting for our fairy tale wedding! The food was absolutely delicious - all our guests said how much they enjoyed the meal. The barn was also the perfect space for our ceilidh, which was so much fun, and, at the same time, it was great to have the separate oak dining room, so that no tables needed to be cleared for dancing, and people could continue to sit, chat and relax after the meal. The Cripps Barn team were super helpful and supportive in the lead up to our wedding, and were always very quick to respond to any of our questions. On the big day itself, all the staff were brilliant - especially our wonderful front-of-house manager, Jodie, who made us feel perfectly looked after throughout the day. We really had an amazing time - thank you so much again to everyone at Cripps for helping to make our wedding so special and memorable! Sarah & Alex - Aug 2017
A big thank you for the wedding of our dreams. We had the most magical day, and everything was perfect - the venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. Thank you for helping to make the day of our dreams a reality for us - all your help in the run up, and on the actual day. We couldn't have been happier. Our guests had a wonderful time too, and we are still getting comments about the food. Everything ran so smoothly and the team were so helpful and professional. Jo & Nick - Aug 2017
A BIG thanks to Lucy and the team for Wednesday. It was an absolutely amazing day and it really was the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect - the outside ceremony, the food, staff, the beautiful venue and of course your help in making sure everything went as smoothly as it did on the day. A lot of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have been to! It really was amazing so thank you again for making our day one that Lucinda & I we will never forget. Lucinda & Daniel - Aug 2017
We had so many comments all day and the weeks that followed that the venue was beautiful, chilled out and that the food was the best wedding food they'd ever had. The staff were nothing but helpful and friendly from first contact to the days following the wedding. Stephanie & Kurtis - Aug 2017
It is the most special place for a wedding as we found out yesterday 8th August when our son Andy married the love if his life, soul mate and best friend Lois. The venue, the staff, food, drinks in fact everything was perfect. The venue is absolutely beautiful, all staff were so good and couldn’t do enough to help and accommodate our wishes, the food was AMAZING and the whole atmosphere was so wonderful. I would highly recommend Shustoke Farm Barns to anyone wishing to book a very special wedding day. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Wendy - Aug 2017
Best day ever! Cripps staff really pushed the boat out. The place looked amazing, The food was top notch and the service exceptional. They all went above and beyond, from Jodie our manager for the day, to the cleaners the next day when I couldn't find my phone. Thanks for making our day so special. - Aug 2017
Cripps have 100% got the whole organising a wedding finely tuned! Making planning the wedding easy! The website saved hours of trawling the Internet many options for suppliers, recommended by Cripps was very comforting. The messaging system made everything clear & simple My messages were always answered quickly. We met to discuss the details we were excited you guys made us feel like our wedding was the only one. Your staff's excitement & passion for what they do is extraordinary. Considering you do weddings most days that is a serious love for your job & a very happy team a credit to you. The theme for our wedding was woodland fairytale what better place to make this come to life than this beautiful venue. We got married inside the British summer didn't play ball but it was perfect & certainly not in anyway a disappointment in fact you could not have topped it. The feeling I got when I walked into the barn will stay with me forever it looked incredible and was so full of love & magic my heart was ready to burst. The whole day was seamless not even noticing the staff making everything happen. Jodie looked after us throughout the day she was superb felt like an old friend there whenever we needed. Nothing too much trouble & again full of that Cripps barn magic. You guys undoubtedly know how to throw the best wedding & anybody considering this venue needs to listen to this. Everything was perfect everything. Our hearts are full of magical memories & each time we think back to our special day we are filled with that magical Cripps feeling. Thank you truly. Tammi & Daniel - Aug 2017

We had the most perfect day we could have wished for at Cripps Barn. Nothing was too much for the staff there. We can't thank them enough for all their help leading up to the day and on the day. The venue location is just incredible and very picturesque.  Tiffany & Ryan - Jul 2017
The best day of our lives. Thank you everyone at Cripps for making it happen. Book this venue. Your guests will be wowed and you will never ever regret it. Kathryn & George - Jul 2017
We fell in love with Cripps Barn from the moment we saw it, and at no stage during the process did it disappoint! The venue itself is totally gorgeous, and all our guests commented on how stunning it was - it really was the perfect setting for our special day. The staff in the lead up to the wedding and on the day were brilliant, Jodie was so lovely and organised our day fantastically. The food was yummy, we had the meat platter - all our guests loved it. The desert was out of this world - we had the chocolate fondant - the only downside was that we were so full we couldn't eat more than 1 portion. We would both recommend Cripps Barn to everyone and anyone! Thank you to everyone at Cripps who was involved. It was the most magical venue for our perfect day. Sophie & Ben - Jul 2017
We had a sensational day with you, thank you so much. The venue was stunning of course, the food amazing (a vegetarian guest said it was the best vegetarian option they had ever had at a wedding, and even the vegan food was delicious). The team could have not been more helpful. Alex & Jono - Jul 2017
We were guests at a wedding last week and felt compelled to send our thanks to the team at Cripps Barn.  From the moment we drove into the grounds of what can only be described as a simply stunning venue to the moment we left we were left in awe of the sheer quality of every single element of the day.  The barn and grounds were jaw-droppingly beautiful (it's hard for a Yorkshireman to say this about anywhere other than my home county!). The staff were absolutely wonderful and attentive, the food was sumptuous and the overall experience was absolutely incredible. Once again our heartfelt thanks to the entire team who did such a wonderful job in the day. Ian & Chris - Jul 2017
The setting of Cripps Barn speaks for itself, it is surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside and has lots of outdoor space for your guests to spend time in. Before the wedding, the staff were incredible - so helpful and accommodating for our needs. The food tasting event was brilliantly organised and we got to try all the delicious food (which made choosing really difficult!). On the day, all the food was divine and our guests were raving about how amazing it all was. We would definitely recommend the beef brick with each table having a chef to carve the meat - was great fun. Cripps are booked up most of the year and for very good reason. It is a magical wedding venue with exceptional staff and facilities. You will be bowled over if you choose this as your wedding venue and we couldn't recommend them highly enough. Angharad & Sam  - Jul 2017
My daughter’s wedding was held at your Cripps Barn last Thursday and I just wanted to say thank you to your staff for making it such a fantastic day. The whole venue looked wonderful, the stone barn, the reception area, the gardens and patio were all prepared to a very high standard. The people serving and attending to our requirements were extremely attentive to each of the guests without ever appearing intrusive. They were invisible most of the time except when they were required, and I wasn’t alone in this comment. The food was the best that I have had at any wedding and there was plenty of it. Most of the guests I spoke to commented on the fun in dressing up in the apron and chef’s hat and carving the meat. You should be very proud of the people that are working for you and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who was thinking of arranging a wedding. Once again thank you for helping to make my daughter and son-in-law’s day so wonderful. Malcolm - Jul 2017
I just wanted to drop you all a little note now that we are home from honeymoon, to say a huge thank you for a wonderful day. The whole team were amazing, they felt like part of the gang whilst also making sure we had the most fantastic day and that our guests were well looked after. From the help with decorations, to recommending the very best suppliers, to making the most delicious food and keeping the drinks flowing. Everything was absolutely perfect, and your team managed all of this on the hottest day of the year without a pause. Our guests were super impressed with the food, the gorgeous venue,and the almighty rave up that followed. A massive shout out and special mention to Jodie, our fabulous front of house support who was a total rock and a joy to have around on the day. Well done Jodie, it was a scorcher and you soldiered on like it was nothing. Thanks Cripps, what a wonderful place and we will cherish the memories forever. Claire & James - Jul 2017
From the first time we came to see Cripps to the actual big day itself, we have loved this venue in its entirety. The venue itself is perfect, rural, tucked away in a beautiful location with perfect views all around (great photograph opportunities). Intimate enough for out 50 or so guests without making us feel swamped. We got married outside in the glade with a humanist celebrant. The wonderful thing about Cripps was that they had the option of inside the barn or outside, each equally as beautiful as the other. This really swung it for us in terms of choice. The staff are brilliant, they are extremely experienced and very good at what they do - making people's big days perfect. No detail was left out and our front of house (Jodie) and meeting planner (Flora) made the whole process smooth and enjoyable, taking a lot of stress as away. Always on hand to answer my last minute questions and handle my panics on the phone. Couldn't rate them highly enough. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food it was cooked to absolute perfection. The chef accommodated our dietary needs perfectly even at last minute which goes to show that this is a venue that does go the extra mile to make your day a perfect one. Quick and no-fuss serving on big platters. The waiters replaced drinks on the table timely and efficiently. Camping - this was a major positive for us. A lot of our guests opted to camp alongside the venue with us (Canvas Cottage - a glamping company can be found on the Cripps website). Sarah & Jonathan - Jul 2017
We have so much to thank you for, I don’t know where to start. The whole day was perfect from start to finish thanks to all of you. The food was sublime – we had a lot of people say it was the best wedding food they have ever had, and we definitely agree. The venue is just wonderful, and you just made everything look effortless, but I know how much hard work goes into it. It was truly the best day of our lives – so many amazing memories. We hope to be back very soon, we are encouraging our friends to get married at Cripps too! Florence & Ian - Jun 2017
Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for everything - we both agreed that there's not a single thing we'd change, or that didn't go perfectly. Much of that is down to how helpful and brilliant you all are. Thank you for making planning the wedding so easy and the day so stunning and seamless. Kate & Mark   - Jun 2017
Cripps Barn is a stunning venue and everyone was completely in awe of the place. The flower girls and page boy loved having all the beautiful grounds to run freely in - Jun 2017
I wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in our wedding, on the day and also the run up to the day. It was absolutely faultless and perfect. We can not put into words how grateful we are and how much we enjoyed the day. We have had so many positive and lovely words and messages and we really appreciate everything you did to help. On the day Jodie was fantastic, she was there whenever we needed her and was just brilliant thinking of all the finer details to help make the day perfect. Along with all the other staff. - Jun 2017
We had a truly wonderful day. Everyone has commented on how lovely the location and the barn were. Thank you so much to all the team at Cripps for making our day everything we wanted it to be. - Jun 2017
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help and support leading up to our wedding and the day itself. Everybody commented on how stunning the venue and location was and how amazing the food was. The team were great throughout the day and Jodie was always asking if there was anything else we wanted/needed and made sure we were introduced to the bar manager when she left. - Jun 2017
My husband and I got married at Cripps Barn on 21st April 2017. I can't believe it’s been almost 2 months since the wedding. Sorry we have not been in touch with you sooner.   We had such an amazing day, we only wish it could all last forever.   We wanted to send you a message just to say thank you so much for everything you did for us. Not only for helping our wedding to run perfectly on the day but also with all your help leading up to it.   The venue looked amazing, the food was delicious and we and our guests thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. So many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.   When we first saw Cripps Barn we knew straight away that it was where we wanted to get married. All the staff from start to finish were so friendly and always on hand to answer any questions. We visited the barn many times whilst planning and everyone was always so accommodating.    On the day everything ran so smoothly and all the staff were incredible. I wanted to particularly thank Lucy who was our front of house for keeping an eye on everything and ensuring everything ran smoothly, to John who was the Chef Manager; the food was incredible and to Dave the Bar manager who kept everyone's drinks full. We would definitely recommend Cripps Barn to anyone else looking to get married.   I was also hoping you could pass on our thanks to Baz and Fred for the fantastic pizza's they did. Everyone loved them. They were some of the best pizza's we have had.    Once again thank you so much for helping to create our dream wedding. We wish the whole Cripps Barn team the very best.   - Jun 2017
The most important day of our lives went without a hitch thanks to the amazing staff at Cripps. Lucy and the team made us feel so welcome and at ease. Everything worked like clockwork and our guests had only good things to say. Thank you so much for everything we couldn't have had a better day. - Jun 2017
I knew from the first time my daughter took me to see Cripps Barn that it was a beautiful venue, and on Sunday friends and family came together to celebrate my daughter's wedding and it was totally amazing. If you are looking for a wedding venue that stands out from the rest then Cripps is the one. The grounds are beautiful with the grassed area and decking - and the barn inside is stunning . The food and the staff were faultless and we had an amazing day. - Jun 2017
My daughter was married recently at Cripps Barn.  I wanted to thank you so much for the lovely day you helped to provide for her.  She didn’t stop smiling all day.  We visited the Barn a few days before the wedding and returned with all questions answered and our minds definitely put to rest!  I arrived with various flowers and other items at 10 am on the day, and Jodie was delightfully helpful and chatty while we were working there.  I barely noticed the organisation of the day which ran seamlessly, and I know this can only be achieved by lots of hard work in the background.   You have a delightful venue, and all the staff we came across during the day, including the bar staff, were very helpful and pleasant.    Thank you for giving my daughter (and the rest of her family) a day to remember.   - Jun 2017
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at Cripps. We had the most amazing day - everything was perfect and nothing was too much trouble. A special thanks to Lucy and Dave - they were both amazing and so helpful. They really did make sure our day ran smoothly, and we didn't have to worry about anything.  - Jun 2017
We had the best day- thanks so much to the Cripps team who made everything so easy and stress free! - May 2017
Thank you so much to all the team for making it such a special day. We couldn't have been happier with how it went. We had lots of complements about the venue, food, and how smoothly the day was run. - May 2017
The day was beyond our wildest dreams, Lucy and Dave were incredible and the whole team were just perfect. Thank you.  - May 2017
We could not have had a more perfect day - it exceeded all of our extremely high expectations! We knew that Cripps Barn was THE venue for us as soon as we saw a picture of it, and it was the only one that we visited. My husband and I are from Cheshire but the venues there really didn't suit us - Cripps is so rustic, real and beautiful inside and out. The food (lots of meat cooked on the outdoor smoker) was exactly what my husband wanted, and the interior (open brick work, greenery everywhere, wooden beams, tea light candles and warm white fairy lights) was exactly what I wanted. So we made all of our friends and family travel to the Cotswolds - they were all blown away by this stunning venue, the grounds, the delicious food and the surrounding towns. Most of them made a weekend of it. So no need to be afraid of straying from your hometown. During the planning, leading up to the day, the amazing people at Cripps always messaged us back within 24 hours, and they were there to help with absolutely everything and make the day our own. On the day our front of house Jodie was just fantastic - the day flowed perfectly, we were never without a drink (!) and we did not have to think about a thing. We hear it is a very rare thing for the bride and groom to actually relax and have loads of fun at their own wedding, but that's exactly how it was for us. The staff were unbelievable. Our 'best day ever' was exactly that - we could not have wished for more. We were also lucky enough to get Summer sunshine in early April. Thank you for everything. - May 2017
My wife & I got married at Cripps Barn on Easter Sunday, it was a magical day that we'll never forget. During the planning process all the Cripps staff were very helpful, responding very quickly to all our requests. They were accommodating throughout and especially on our special day. The venue is stunning, sitting in beautiful grounds in the middle of the Cotswold countryside. You will have the best wedding food you've ever tasted if you choose Cripps Barn, that’s a fact! All our guests raved about the delicious meal.... I'm still thinking about the steak bricks 3 weeks on! We've had so many lovely messages from friends and family saying it was one of the best wedding they've ever been to. I'm so glad we chose Cripps Barn for our wedding and would like to thank all the lovely people that work there for our incredible day.  - May 2017
We both wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help in making our day run smoothly on Sunday. Lucy was great, as were the rest of the staff and we had the best day... still can't believe how lucky we were with the weather!  - May 2017
Cripps Barn have been outstanding from the beginning, due to a family loss we wanted to postpone the wedding, and Cripps allowed us to change the date at quite short notice with no extra cost! The venue is lovely, the grounds surrounding the barn are perfect for couple photos, the fire pits and bonfire in the evening are a great way to help your day transition from the day celebrations to the evening party. The food is incredible, and the staff are all outstanding, They offer full support from start to finish, there is a real " can do" attitude to everything! We felt at ease the entire day, and we could have redone the day all over again. Amazing, if you are looking for a barn wedding then Cripps is perfect! - May 2017
My husband and I were guests at a wedding at Cripps Barn. We had such a wonderful experience that I wanted to email to say thank you to everyone working on that day. We are both vegetarians and the wedding meal was absolutely fantastic - really original, a good size and extremely tasty! We also both noticed how friendly, welcoming and professional all the waiting and bar staff were - they really were spot on. - May 2017
Thank you so much for the perfect day! You were all fantastic. - May 2017
We had an amazing time. The venue was perfect and so many people realised why we'd made them travel all that way! Jodie was absolutely brilliant and a real credit to you guys at Cripps. She did everything we could of asked for and more. Dave had a hectic day with the bar, he did an amazing job. We hope there was some alcohol left for the wedding the next day! - May 2017
A beautiful barn with a truly rustic feel, in a wonderfully private and spectacular rural setting. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the wedding planning process is made very easy and stress free. Everything on the day went smoothly, and we were able to fully relax and enjoy the whole day. The service was slick and the food was divine. We would recommend this venue to anyone. It was the perfect choice for us. Thank you Cripps! - May 2017
From the beginning, seeing Cripps Barn's gallery of photos online and visiting the venue for the first time, we fell totally in love. It's just beautiful - even when undecorated and as is. Just being there each time we visited brought our emotions to the forefront. The process from choosing the venue right the way through to the courtesy call a couple of days before the wedding date was seamless, thanks to the Cripps Barn friendly, approachable and understanding staff. They were excellent with communicating due to their online Notes system and responded to our many many queries over the planning period in good time, usually the same day or the next. Admittedly there were a few unexpected costs, as neither of us had been involved in the financial side of planning a wedding before, but I believe this is something you will discover with every venue, and Cripps Barn were always very clear about their costs and pricing. On the wedding day itself, we cannot stress enough how Cripps Barn exceeded our expectations, most especially with the food! Reading the menu written down sounds nice, but actually seeing it come out and tasting it is another thing altogether! Many of our guests agreed with our opinion that it was the best wedding food they had tasted. Not only this, the staff were so organised and professional in a "barely there" kind of way, that every moment of the day ran seamlessly. We cannot imagine our wedding any other way or at any other more perfect venue! Thank you so much to the whole team, you made our day perfect. - May 2017

Our wedding was on Saturday 29th October 2016 - nearly six months ago - how time has flown! But better late than never we wanted to message you a quick thank you. We had the most amazing day, and Cripps Barn made that day go so smoothly. We enjoyed the entire process - the planning meeting, the food tastings, and of course the day itself most of all. Everyone loved the venue. The food was fantastic. The ceremony felt so special in the barn, and it made a great space for our ceilidh later! - Apr 2017

Thank you so very much for making it a truly wonderful day. We so appreciated all the effort that you all went to in looking after us, our guests and our suppliers. The barn looked stunning and the food was as spectacular as we knew it would be. "Best wedding food ever" was the refrain - even from our videographer, who has no doubt tasted more than most! - Mar 2017

We had a great day. All the guests have given us wonderful feedback on the stunning venue and the amazing food, so well done to you all for such a fantastic day. - Mar 2017
We really can't speak highly enough of the team and the whole experience. The site is fantastic, the booking process transparent and straight forward, the staff helpful, friendly and approachable. Things could have been much more stressful, trying to put everything on in just 3 months, but you really helped to make the whole thing seem effortless and really enjoyable. I hope our friends look to book their weddings with you, or one of your sister venues, so we can come back and enjoy the whole thing again! - Mar 2017
Thank you to all the staff at Cripps Barn for making our daughters wedding day such a success. Alice was our contact for the day, and she never ceased to impress us with her commitment and attention to detail, throughout what must have been a very long day for her. The food was FANTASTIC, and that's not just us saying that, no end of people commented, so many thanks to your catering staff, as well as the Pizza providers. - Mar 2017
Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing weekend and for making everything so effortless and wonderful. We really had the best time and all our guests were highly complimentary about the barn, the food and all the staff. The beef went down tremendously well and people really had fun doing the carving themselves. We had so many comments about how tender it was and how delicious all the food was! - Mar 2017
It was such a fantastic day! Thank you for all your wonderful help. All of our guests were effusive about your delicious food, and some said that it was the best wedding food they had ever tasted. Many of our guests have also told us since how excellent your staff were. Throughout the day, there was never a point that we didn't feel absolutely relaxed, safe in the knowledge that your team was taking care of everything. You all consistently went the extra mile, and you have our complete gratitude for your fantastic work. We have received nothing to pass on but the most tremendous compliments from our guests, too.  From the drawn-out planning stage, to setting up, to the night itself and then cleaning up, Cripps took perfect care of us. Whatever you could do to make the day more fun and less stressful, you did it. We had a great day, so thank you all, so much. - Feb 2017
Hello Flora, Jodie and the rest of the team, A proper thank you will be on its way in a week's time, but in the meantime, this is just a line to echo that of my parents' - thank you so very much for making it a truly wonderful day. We so appreciated all the effort that you all went to in looking after us, our guests and our suppliers. Jodie couldnt have been more helpful in keeping us on track. The barn looked stunning and the food was as spectacular as we knew it would be. "Best wedding food ever" was the refrain - even from our videographer, who has no doubt tasted more than most! Thank you very much! - Feb 2017
Slightly random request to make I'm sure, but I attended the wedding on Saturday, and enjoyed the food so much I can't stop thinking about it! (So a huge thank you to the catering team of course). In particular I was hoping to try to recreate the pickled cucumber that we had with the smoked salmon starter; of course I have googled but there seem to be many different kinds and I don't want to end up with gherkins...so I thought I would just try my luck and see if you could point me in the right direction (or share the recipe with me that you use!). I'd be very grateful. - Feb 2017
