The Oak Barn
Our spectacular Grade II listed threshing barn has undergone a meticulous restoration to create a versatile and unique space that retains it’s wonderful historic character. The barn is licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, and can seat about 130 guests for formal dining with additional capacity for evening receptions.

The magnificent high vaulted roof, floor to ceiling glass doors and latest technology will ensure both you and the barn are beautifully lit day or night. Underfloor heating and a wood burning stove will keep you cosy and warm in winter, and in summer our air-conditioning system will keep you cool throughout your function.
The Oak Barn's sliding glass doors flow into the courtyard that leads to Weaver's Cottages and this provides the perfect entertaining area, and if you require additional space, a marquee can be attached to the south side of the barn.
With classic elegance and tranquil views down the valley and across the pond, The Byre flows onto the terrace through floor to ceiling glass doors and into a sheep field - it is the perfect place to watch the sun go down with friends, be inspired, or relax and rejuvenate. Wandering away from the terrace you will discover a picturesque wildlife pond and listen to the trickling music of our waterfall.
This versatile space is licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships and provides a more intimate space for smaller events and functions and, like The Oak Barn, it has every modern convenience with underfloor heating and state-of-the-art technology.

Gardens & Grounds
The Oak Barn, The Byre, Weaver's Cottages and our well are all Grade II listed and clearly marked on historic maps of 1777 and 1800, which also show the farm track and gardens surrounding the farmstead have changed little during this time.
Accordingly, the landscaping is understated to improve the practicality of the farmyard for our guests, in particular, all areas flow into each other to allow wheelchair access. In the past the gardens have been beautifully tended and many well established specimen plants form the essence of the new planting. The gardens will remain naturalistic in style with our outside terraces softened with waving grasses and year round colour from perennials.
Beyond the gardens you will have the freedom of over 20 acres for a private walk away from your party guests or photographs beside the lily pond. We have excellent opportunities for team building exercises and other corporate activities.
You will only share the pasture and woodland with sheep and abundant birdlife. Kestrels and buzzards are frequent visitors and woodpeckers are heard daily. Indeed, we have planted 160 native broadleaved trees south of The Oak Barn and called it ‘Woodpecker Wood’.
