Full Description
Oxleaze Barn is situated on a farm in the beautiful Cotswold countryside and has been sympathetically renovated, with exposed beams and stonework disguising the addition of state of the art technology, stunning lighting and underfloor heating as well as kitchen and bathroom facilities. Oxleaze barn comprises of The Barn and the adjoining Milling Barn. if the weather allows, outdoor ceremonies can take place on our courtyard or the paddock. If it's a rainy day, the ceremony and wedding breakfast take place in the main barn, the open fire can be lit if it's chilly. The Milling Barn is available for the drinks reception and dancing. The Barns open onto stunning landscaped courtyards and firepit, with a wide garden gate available for late night street food vans. The underfloor heating, big open fire and fire pit keep guests warm for cool evenings. Oxleaze Barn endeavours to be a wedding venue without being a wedding venue! We strive for simplicity and flexibility, our aim is to offer a beautiful venue with all the necessary basics for your wedding - fully equipped kitchen, cloakroom and loos, chairs and tables, firepit and logs. However the decorations are up to the client to decide thus allowing them the freedom to create a day that reflects them rather than producing a package that is repeated every weekend. The client can choose from our handpicked selection of caterers or alternatively go off list. The bar is managed by The Watering Hole who can offer a number of packages to suit specific requirements. Oxleaze Barn is run by a family team who all pull together to make sure each wedding day is as special as the last. We only have 1 wedding a weekend in order to give each client the attention they require to get everything just right. Clients have access to the venue the day before to set up and decorate so that they can focus on one another on the wedding day! Week day weddings are also possible.

The best day
Oxleaze barn was the perfect place to get married. As soon as we visited we knew! The location is beautiful, both inside the barn and out. There was plenty of space for our guests throughout the day, when we ate and also later in the day there was the option to be on the dance floor, sit in the other part of the barn or be outside. All the staff were so friendly and answered all my questions quickly throughout the planning process. On the day Kath was fantastic and ensured everything went according to plan. We absolutely loved it and will recommend Oxleaze barn to everyone.

Best day of our lives!
I waitressed at Oxleaze Barn in 2014 and have wanted to get married there ever since! It was an amazing venue for our wedding, and every had an incredible time. We were looked after by the team from the first meeting, through a Covid postponement, all the way to the end of the day itself. We felt that we were in very good hands throughout. We mostly used the recommended suppliers which was helpful as Oxleaze know them very well, and lots of the organisation could just be passed onto the amazing team. We did have our own photobooth and ceilidh band who were both dealt with seamlessly. It ended up being a very hot day, but knowing that there were plenty of options if the weather was bad was one less thing to worry about. We loved how guests could choose between the dancing barn and the outside chill area (hay bales, fairy lights and a fire pit). It was great how the evening guests were looked after - they were given drinks and held in a separate mini garden until we were ready for them to arrive. Thank you to Oxleaze for the best day of our lives!

Our wonderful wedding day
We loved Oxleaze from our very first visit and knew it was the place we could see ourselves getting married. Our plans for the day altered over the last year, to reduce it to a smaller wedding of 30 in line with restrictions, but we had the most wonderful and relaxed day and cannot imagine it any differently. Not only is is a beautiful venue but Kath, Faye and Hannah were so helpful and friendly throughout, especially with the challenging backdrop of ever changing restrictions. It was brilliant having the freedom to choose suppliers which suited our taste and budget, along with having the team's knowledge and support to pull everything together. The recommend supplier list was a brilliant resource too. With the sunny weather we were fortunate to be able to have the ceremony outdoors and to make use of the lovely courtyard, as well as the surrounding grounds for pictures. We could not recommend this more as a wedding venue and give our thanks to the team once again!

The Oxleaze team were outstanding
We held our wedding at Oxleaze Barn and it is an amazing venue! So many beautiful options (both inside & outside) of where to have the wedding ceremony, lots of space for the guests to enjoy & so many lovely spots for pictures around the barns, gardens & duck pond! The Oxleaze team were outstanding in helping ensure everything ran smoothly both before & on the day, so we could enjoy the day without having to think about any of the logistics. It was also great being able to choose which caterers, florists, photographer etc we used at the venue. Would highly recommend Oxleaze Barn for your wedding or event!

We cannot recommend Oxleaze enough!
When we first visited Oxleaze in January we knew we had found the perfect venue for our daughter’s wedding. Then lock down came and we couldn’t see how a small wedding for 25 people could work at all in this beautiful place...but then Faye and Katherine turned problems into solutions, difficulties into possibilities and encouraged us to plan Em and Tom’s wedding for the original date, 16th September. We had an amazing day! The sky was blue, the sun shone, the food was delicious and the children stole the show. We cannot recommend Oxleaze enough for their help, encouragement and support, when nothing (and I mean, nothing) is too much trouble. Having Katherine with us on the day to help us through the various stages of eating a socially distanced meal together was so reassuring and we are all so glad, not least the bride and groom, that we went ahead with a small family wedding, so special in every way. It wasn’t our original plan but all who attended agreed that it was truly unique …. and we wouldn’t change a thing.
