An idyllic venue

Hill Barn

In the heart of the Cotswolds

Located in Lower Swell, just outside Stow-on-the-Wold, Hill Barn is an exclusive event venue in the middle of the stunning Cotswold countryside.

Situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, Hill Barn is surrounded by 1200 acres of organic farmland. With two contrasting buildings, a modern rustic Dutch Barn and a beautifully renovated Cotswold stone barn, we offer flexible event spaces for up to 150 seated guests for wedding receptions, dinners, parties, meetings and conferences.

Contact: Clare Harris, Hill Barn Events Manager at

Stone Barn

The smaller of the two buildings, Stone Barn offers a more casual, intimate space suitable for smaller gatherings such as meetings, lunches, dinner parties, shoot breakfasts and drinks receptions. The barn is 1,300 Sq Ft and normally has a maximum capacity of 40 seated and 75 persons standing.

Dutch Barn

The 5,700 Sq Ft Dutch barn can accommodate 150 seated guests. It is suitable for conferences, away days, drinks and birthday parties, dinner/dances, and wedding receptions*. It’s a great space for photoshoots and product launches.

*Please note, Hill Barn is not licensed to hold wedding ceremonies, but there are lots of beautiful churches nearby.



We provide the highest standard of facilities in both barns for guest and staff use, including disabled WC access.

There is a modern kitchen in Stone Barn with a double catering fridge, oven/hob and two dishwashers. This can be used when hiring either barn. There is good wi-fi available in both barns. Dutch Barn has air-conditioning and Stone Barn has an open fire. There are solar panels on Dutch Barn, providing 27kw per day. Heating (underfloor) throughout both barns is from ground source heat pumps.
