Hazel Gap Barn
A New Cripps Wedding Barn on the Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire
Hazel Gap Barn is a gem of a building on the Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire. The Barn is set on its own in lovely countryside some distance away from the well-visited Welbeck Village. Hazel Gap has now opened for weddings and events, as of 15th April 2017.
Two traditional red brick farm buildings – the Barn itself and the Farmhouse – stand either side of a walled farmyard, now a stunning courtyard with a fountain, benches, trees and planters, sheltered from the wind and perfect for post-ceremony drinks. At night, this is a magical place with flares, firepits and lovely lighting.
The Farmhouse and Barn are fronted with two rather unusual and striking towers with wonderful tall arched entrances, providing a dramatic view to approaching guests. Between these runs the original farm wall, forming the front of the courtyard, while at the rear a new Oak Room forms the link between the barn and farmhouse, containing both a light-filled dining room with country views across the lawn and into the woods, and a fabulous bar opening into the courtyard.
The Barn has been re-roofed with traditional oak timbers, and a fireplace, fairy lights and giant candelabra have been added to make the most perfect Ceremony Room. After the evening meal, this room will be transformed into the dance floor.
The Farmhouse has been converted into professional kitchens and guest loos which will be accessible from the Dining Room.
We have a Civil Ceremony Licence for both the Barn and the Oak Room.
Cripps Barn Group has now developed five derelict barns into unique wedding venues. Please have a look at www.crippsbarn.com and browse the different barns. We hope you will see that each barn is totally individual, but that they share a certain style, and, from the testimonial letters, that each Barn’s team provide a uniquely personal service from booking to the delivery of the day.
