The History of Lapstone Barn
Nestled in the tranquil Cotswold Countryside in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, stands the historical Lapstone Barn. This beautifully restored 18th-century barn has a rich history running for more than two centuries. Originally, Lapstone Barn was a part of Lapstone Farm, functioning as a mixed-use farm for thriving Cotswold’s agriculture until the mid-20th century. In the 1950s, its role transformed into a hub for local craftspeople who were producing premier hand-made goods. Throughout the 90s, the barn served as a well-known craft shop, attracting visitors from around the world who admired traditional Cotswold crafts. Despite its transformation over the years, the barn retained its original stone structure, its rustic charm gently preserved. In 2017, a significant restoration project commenced to convert Lapstone Barn into a high-quality wedding venue. Today, it features a blend of old-world charm with modern sophistication, reflecting its centuries-old history while providing contemporary services for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The architectural adaptation and careful restoration of this historical structure have breathed new life into it, making Lapstone Barn an iconic and cherished wedding venue in the heart of the Cotswolds.

I take great pride to subtly merge into your day and to be approachable for all your guests. The Cotswolds is an area I grew up in and I am all too familiar with everything the region has to offer.
