Barn Hire

We are pleased to offer our beautiful Grade II listed 400 year old
Barn for hire.

The Barn has a large character interior with a wood floor and is adjoined by a large kitchen area which is included within the hire and can be used for breakouts / teas & coffees etc.

Nb. Please note we do not hire out the barn between October and March as it is not cost effective or easy to heat.


Workshops, Training Days, Courses, & Meetings

Please note we primarily run as a quiet meeting place and residential retreat centre and therefore offer our venue spaces for workshops, small retreats, courses, classes, meetings and occasional business and church groups only. We therefore don't offer facilities for weddings, family parties, functions, childrens parties, ceremonies or any other large gatherings or events in the Barn or at the venue.
