If you are looking for a beautiful barn venue in the Cotswolds for your wedding then you may want to consider Kingscote Barn. Located a short 10 minute drive from Tetbury and a 15 minute drive from Stroud, Kingscote Barn is set in a stunning location surrounded by rolling hills.
Formerly the location of the current farm barn, it was converted to be a wedding and events venue when the owners decided to relocate the farm buildings further up the hill - not that the farm is really noticeable. The only time you really notice is during the Spring when the surrounding hillsides are thronged with bouncing lambs!
Kingscote Barn is a bit of a hidden gem, tucked away in a valley, not even visible from the main road. It isn't until you descend along the driveway that the barn can even be seen, emerging from behind the hedgerows as you make your approach.
It is a versatile venue that can be used for ceremonies and receptions for up to 150 people. The barn also benefits from a mezzanine level which can seat additional guests or can simply be used as a vantage point (I quite often find myself perched up there when shooting weddings!). The barn provides a rustic blank canvas that can be decorated to suit your own style. Lanterns and light canopies can provide an extra wow factor and maximise use of the space.
Over the years, Kingscote Barn has made lots of lovely additions and they can now provide outdoor ceremonies on the beautiful lawns in front of the Oak Linhay. Even if you don't want to have an outdoor ceremony, the Linhay provides a beautiful backdrop for photos.
You will find, however, that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to photos! There are beautiful vistas in every direction. There is also a games paddock where you can set up games to keep the young (and young-at-heart!) entertained, a boules court, vast lawns for a relaxed drinks reception and also plenty of outdoor chairs and benches where your friends and family can congregate to have a drink and a natter!
It truly is a beautiful place with lots of scope for adding your own personal touches. To find out if it the perfect venue for your celebration, why not arrange a viewing and see the place for yourself? If you are also looking for a photographer then I can happily say that Kingscote is one of my absolute favourite venues to photograph. I would be more than happy to meet you there for a chat to see whether I am the right photographer for you!
