The contemporary Orchard Barn was constructed in 2016 on the footprint of the original sheep sheds. It is dedicated entirely to your wedding breakfast and evening celebration.

Talented craftsmen and the interior design skills of Didi Vernon Miller have launched Blackwell Grange as one of the most exciting new wedding venues in the Cotswolds with a truly exceptional space for dining and dancing.

On the ground floor, a stylish copper and timber clad bar with a striking white volcanic rock bar top greets your guests before they enter the dining area. This impressive, predominantly glass filled space features grey sandstone floors with underfloor heating, magnificent oak beams and stunning chandeliers.

Bi-fold doors open onto a picturesque terrace and loggia beside the Cider Lawn with views over the farm and the Cotswold countryside beyond.

The Orchard Barn was specifically designed to be a blank canvas: you can realise your ideal wedding ideas to make this space truly yours. White linen, elegant chairs and various table sizes are available to create the flow and flexibility to suit your wedding party. You can invite up to 150 guests for a seated dinner and up to 200 for your evening party.

Elements of the farm’s heritage can be seen throughout this spectacular contemporary barn. The loo corridor is affectionately known as “Memory Lane” and a photographic montage wall shows the family’s history on the property from 1944, through the restoration project to the present day. Bar stools have been created from tractor seats, elements of the décor features hints of the Vernon Miller racing silks – pale pink and maroon in tweed cushions and the disabled loo which also has baby changing facilities.

The talents of the local craftsmen are in abundance, with basin taps and loo roll holders made from copper piping in the men’s loos and a branch of an old Ash tree from the farm to support the ladies loos basin unit. The new doors are clad with the original timber from the farm’s water tower. You will find yourself surrounded by stylish elements with the very highest finish expected of exclusive wedding venues.

In the bar area, a striking helical staircase leads up to the Snug; a mezzanine level overlooking the dining area. This separate ‘chill out’ space has an eclectic mix of sofas, armchairs, coffee tables and lamps that complement the copper, grey and teal colour palette, offering you and your guests an alluring space in which to relax as the party continues downstairs.

As well as using the Snug as a quiet area, you might choose to deliver your speeches from this elevated position or have your photographer capture the perfect shot of your first dance from the glass balustrade.
