Postlip's tithe barn
A unique wedding venue un the heart of the Cotswolds
A unique wedding venue
Postlip's tithe barn is a magnificent medieval listed building nestled in a sleepy hamlet by the source of the River Isbourne. Everything about the tithe barn is authentic: the awe-inspiring oak beams, the lovingly cared for Cotswold stone roof, the massive limestone walls and the pocket of meadow it sits in.
Rural and rustic
The barn doors open out onto a small meadow, which provides a versatile extension to the barn for outdoor activities, games, bouncy castles or just a bit of fresh air.
Bordered on two sides by a gently burbling stream and a large, recently restored, pond, the secluded natural beauty provides a breath-taking backdrop for weddings and receptions.
The barn plays an integral part in community life at Postlip Hall. Out of the ‘party’ season it is used for repair, maintenance and construction projects and for storage of produce from our kitchen garden. During warmer months it’s proved a perfect setting for people looking for a venue that allows them to express their individuality because it offers them the freedom to organise their own catering, decoration and celebration.

Now taking bookings for 2022 and beyond...
Subject to current government restrictions, we are taking viewings for 2022 dates onwards. Please be assured that we will be adhering to social distancing regulations during viewings.
We have prepared a risk assessment to ensure our venue is 'Covid safe' for everyone.
Wedding parties have exclusive use of the barn, the meadow and access to the grounds around Postlip Hall by prior agreement. Our top terrace, woodland glade and pavilion are perfect for drinks or photography in good weather.
The barn itself is licensed for civil ceremonies so you can get married in the barn before the reception. There are also areas of the grounds available for non-religious, non-legal ceremonies (eg. handfasting, humanist).
The barn has ample power sockets, a kitchenette and bar with hot and cold running water and an adjacent loo block with disabled access. There is parking in the meadow next to the barn for about 50 cars, but most organisers arrange for a minibus to avoid guests having to choose between drinking and driving.
The cost of hiring the barn for your wedding reception - which includes the day before and the day after the event - is £3,200.
If you would like to include a licensed ceremony to your day then the cost £3,750 total. Please note that this does not include the registrars' fee - the extra charge we make is a proportion of our venue license fee.
