Recently we have been scouting around to find the best Cotswold wedding and party venues, and would like to introduce you to these three little gems.
With a fantastic rural setting, Oxleaze Barn near Lechlade was traditionally a grain store, built from Cotswold stone, and its towering beams make an absolutely stunning setting for both weddings, parties and corporate events. Whilst the owner Katie showed us around the barn and the terrific annexe (great for getting ready for the big entrance, a children’s hideout, or for a quiet retreat away from the party), horses eyed us from the field of this family-run working farm.
The barn doors open wide onto a private courtyard and terraced lawn which is perfect for drinks and outdoor entertaining in the summer around the fire pit. The barn is warm and toasty on winter evenings, heated by the glorious open fireplace and under-floor heating. Katie’s mother has also worked her magic on the surrounding gardens, a perfect backdrop for photographs. You can really make this your own little piece of paradise, and we’d love to help you!
Looking for a venue for a Cotswold House Party then look no further than Barton Farm, on the edge of the Cotswold village of Guiting Power.
This beautifully renovated former farmhouse sits in around 13 acres of gardens, pasture and woodland (did we mention the tennis court, cinema snug, heated outdoor pool and barbeque barn?
Your guests can dance the night away in the stunning ‘party’ barn – and with seven beautifully designed bedrooms, a chosen few can stay over to be pampered by the in house staff – a restorative swim or game of tennis (or just a session in the steam room) before a breakfast of champions around the pool, the BBQ area or the cosy farmhouse kitchen – you choose!?
