TESTIMONIALS

I am writing on behalf of my daughter, son-in-law and family to say a huge thank you for the thoughtful service and professionalism given to all family and guests on their wedding day - Saturday, 27th January at Hazel Gap Barn. I have received so many compliments (still getting them) that I wanted to make sure you knew.

The day went very smoothly and expertly and the organization on the day was superbly carried out. We have had nothing but compliments on the amazing service and food from all the guests. Your friendly staff looked after us extremely well and were always one step ahead of us.

A special mention must go to Carlos who is an exceptional, hardworking individual and gave us all excellent service. He was a model of professional efficiency combined with his cheerful, outgoing personality and he did much to further enhance our time at the Barn.

Everyone was blown away by the splendour of the building and the spectacular rooms we had at our disposal. I just kept saying ‘Wow’ especially when I saw the dining room all set up. Oh, and have I already mentioned the food! It was beyond superb!

All in all it was the most magnificent and wonderful day we could have hoped for. We have had so many people come back and say how much they enjoyed the celebration and just what a real gem Hazel Gap Barn is (glad we discovered it first!).
Thank you. Everything was perfection!

It was the perfect day. Everything from the organisation, to the food, and the friendly staff was absolutely perfect. Before the day the staff answer any questions you have through the Cripps online portal, which is incredibly handy as everything is there and nothing gets lost in translation. You can see everything that you’re spending money on and the staff can’t help enough.
On the big day Beth was so helpful. She talked to my husband & I prior to the ceremony. She got me into the bridal room and helped to organise everyone walking down the aisle. She was waiting with drinks for us after the ceremony and just helped everything run smoothly.
The venue itself is just incredible. Everywhere is picture perfect; the bar is very reasonably priced; the courtyard is perfect for everyone to gather and the back is amazing for photos with all the trees behind the venue. You feel truly like it’s just your place. The best part of the day was the food! Everyone said it’s the best wedding meal they have ever had - we had the mixed grill & I couldn’t recommend it enough! We also had the cheese buffet for the evening and all the guests loved it.

We had an incredible day at the venue, which looked stunning, and the organisation and helpfulness of the staff meant that the day ran so smoothly. We didn’t have to worry about anything and could just enjoy our day with the comfort that everything was in great hands. All the guests commented on how beautiful the venue looked, and how incredibly tasty the food was. There were so many food options to choose from - we chose the BBQ’d mixed grill for our main course and it was delicious. Prior to the wedding itself, the communication from Beth and the team at the venue was superb and everything was really easy to plan, even though we are living in Canada. I would definitely recommend Hazel Gap Barn to anyone who may be interested - you will love it! We couldn’t have been happier at how our wedding day went, and Hazel Gap played a big part in that.

From the moment we went to see Hazel Gap, we knew it was the place for us (even though it was still a building site then!). Beth made us feel completely at ease, and had everything under control from the moment we booked. Once booked, everything was so easy and straight forward to organise, and nothing was too much trouble for Beth and the team. The barn itself is stunning, with beams, candles and fairy lights everywhere which made for a truly beautiful setting. The grounds and building make for stunning photos and the food was fantastic (especially the steak!). So many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to and best wedding food they had ever had (some even said the steak was the best they’d had full-stop). All the staff on the day were so friendly and helpful, and Beth, Carlos and Charlie took care of everything so it all went smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We can’t fault anything about Hazel Gap, you definitely won’t be disappointed if you have your wedding there.

HAZEL GAP BARN WOW....My daughter married her beau on May 25th, 2017 the ceremony taking place within the walls of the barn. I walked down the aisle of the barn not knowing whether to look left or right, like a rabbit with eyes trapped by headlights! Delightful environment. After the Wedding Certificates were completed, we moved through to the bar and Oak Room. I think that I could write a small book about this particular day and venue. Concluding, the Hazel Gap Barn, is in my opinion a venue fit for many types of event. Together with the very attentive staff; those gathered enjoyed excellent food, wine along with a selection of draught and other drinks. The outside courtyard provides a beautiful setting whether by day or evening. For anyone placing their event here, be that for corporate or family occasion will not be disappointed. The weather could not have been better; I suggest most events can be designed in such a way, so they would not be compromised by the inclement British weather.

We were married here on 28 May 2017. The communication in the run up was great, the ease of customising the event was great and the flexibility was appreciated. On the big day itself, the venue staff were delightful (particular thanks to Beth and Carlos). The venue itself was everything we ever wanted it to be and the food was absolutely out-of-this-world (chicken tarragon terrine, steak, treacle sponge and custard). Running out of positive adjectives, but suffice to say we are immensely grateful and are confident this will go on to be an exceptionally successful venture for Cripps.

When we viewed Hazel Gap it was still an empty derelict barn, we viewed the concept art and saw pictures of the other converted barns Cripps has worked on in the past. It was a gamble as we’d be the 3rd wedding in and our date was only a few weeks after the completion date, but it was 100% worth the risk.The venue is stunning. A lot of care and attention to detail went into the planning and building, and it shows. Every single guest of ours complemented the venue and we’re still talking about it nearly a month later.The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and they really made sure our day ran smoothly and we both just enjoyed the whole day without any worries.Food was amazing, I loved the courtyard with the fire pits, it all helped to create a very relaxed atmosphere which is the main feedback we’ve had from our guests.Thanks Hazel Gap, I’m sure we’ll be back as guests as we know a lot of our friends are considering you for their wedding venue also, can’t wait!

We cannot rate Hazel Gap Barn highly enough. We were unsure about booking initially as when we first looked round it was still a derelict shell of a building. We’re are so glad we went with our gut, the venue is absolutely stunning, it definitely has the wow factor! The staff both in the lead up to the day, and on the day were superb. We cannot thank them enough for all their hardwork, they were very professional and friendly, and willing to go above and beyond to ensure that everyone was looked after. In particular, Beth and Charlie who were the managers during the day, did a fantastic job of keeping everything on track. The food was brilliant, we went with the mixed grill BBQ option and pizzas for the evening. Everyone commented on how good the food was, it was presented beautifully and tasted fantastic. Thanks so much to Hazel Gap for helping to make our special day absolutely perfect!
