The barn

An 18th-Century Cotswolds Barn with romance built in


Grade II listed and many stories to tell

Lapstone Barn was a working farm until the 1980s, with hay barns at the rear and a sea of land around her. During the Second World War, Margaret Calkin James (a famous painter best known for her poster designs for London Underground and London Transport) lived and worked at Lapstone Farm. In the mid-90s planning permission was granted for conversion into furniture workshops. It was at this point, that the hay barns were extended to create the beautiful barn we have today for Cotswolds weddings.



Cotswolds as far as the eye can see

Step outside and into our carefully landscaped grounds. Perfect for garden games if you’re having a spring or summer wedding. Or canapes and mulled wine for an autumn event. Beyond the lawns, the open countryside of the North Cotswolds stretches to the horizon bringing peace and privacy to your day. For extra intimacy, there’s our English courtyard garden with its gentle fountain, low hedges, and flowerbeds bursting with lavender and fragrant roses.
