Wedding Reception Areas:
We now have two buildings, the Stone barn and the Green barn and we find the best weddings use all the different spaces as your guests will love the variety and the space.
The Stone Barn – Upstairs – Main Room:
The large, wooden-floored room upstairs is 14 metres by 5 metres and well-lit with natural light. It is licensed for wedding ceremonies and dining for up to 80. It can be used for other functions as well.
There are plenty of power-points around the room. You are free to decorate the room to your preferred taste. There is no wheelchair access however there are two accesses and the external fire escape is suitable for ambulant disabled.
The Stone Barn – Upstairs – Anteroom:
Also upstairs is a separate room measuring 5 metres by 4 metres. It can be used as an extension of the large room, for catering or serving purposes, or even as a creche area for weddings.
The Stone Barn – Downstairs:
The reception room is 8.4 metres by 5 metres, and has original stone walls, and a wood-burning stove. French windows open out to the barbecue area, tennis court and garden. The marquee can be adjoining if required. The room can be set up with any combination of furniture and used as a dining area, for receptions or for dancing! There are ramps at the front and rear of the building for disabled access to the yard and garden.
The Stone Barn – Tables & Chairs:
Unlike some venues we include our tables and chairs in the hire. We have 100 blue banqueting chairs which you may wish to cover, 8 5ft round tables and 12 2ftx6ft trestle tables for you use. You can see them in the pictures above. We also provide tablecloths and napkins.
The Stone Barn – Kitchen:
Equipped with modern stainless steel gas appliances and worktops, the kitchen can cater for fairly large numbers. Again, included in the hire are plates, glasses and cutlery for up to about 90 people. We charge the caterers for the use of the kitchen charge to cover wear and tear and fuel. Wedding groups can choose a caterer from our list or choose their own.
The Stone Barn – Breckenhill Marquee extension
We have 2 marquess 10m x 4m. You can join one onto the rear of the stone barn to extend the ground floor space for a bar area or additional seating etc. If the weather permits this can be opened up to give full access to the patio area which benefits from good afternoon and evening sun.
The Stone Barn – Other Marquee extensions
There is a large area outside the back of the stone barn which can be used for larger marquess as well, by arrangement. Marquess up to 27m x 9m have been erected here in the past.
