The Stone Barn

The Stone Barn is an impressive building, almost 100ft in length and is arranged on two distinct levels connected by steps and a ramp.

The Upper Level

The upper level of the building, dating from the mid-1800’s, provides a large reception area in addition to the entrance.

The slate flooring complements the sandstone and brick walls. There is under-floor heating throughout the Barn and a variety of lighting options to suit all moods and occasions.

There are two large openings, formerly loading doors; one provides the main entrance and the other access to an extensive raised, and south-facing terrace, that is ideal for receptions on a sunny day or as a stage for performances.

The Lower Level

The lower level of the building dates from the 17th century, with in-filled mullion windows and doorways set into its lovely rough sandstone walls. The tall vaulted roof and oak flooring provide ideal and well-proportioned space for comfortably seating up to 80 diners at round or rectangular tables.

More can be seated if the upper level is used as well. The comprehensive lighting incorporates pin lights that can be directed onto each table or into the stone recesses.


A further ramp and archway lead into a servery and through to the caterer’s kitchen. The two large openings, allow plenty of light and one provides access directly onto the lawn.

Both halves of the Stone Barn have floor boxes for power and data input. Ten ceiling speakers and the integrated sound system ensure that speeches, presentations and films can be easily made, shown and heard.

    It was a pleasure to photograph at Hendall! They were so understanding and thoughtful in the way they treated the couple and me throughout the whole day. Beautiful venue and wonderful staff, I look forward to working with them again in the future!

  • Everyone absolutely loved the day

    Molly & I are so extremely grateful for everything you’ve done which has helped gift us with the best wedding day. Our favourite position generally being background characters in events, we were approaching the day with a bit of anxiety and stress about all the attention and business of the day, however, we couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Everything ran so smoothly, the food was delicious, the waiters and helpers were wonderful and the venue provoked a lot of amazing feedback. Everyone absolutely loved the day.

    Once again, thank you for all you have done, your venue is amazing, we had a gorgeous day with gorgeous weather (somehow!!) and it was such a pleasure to get to know Peter & Nicola and the whole team at Hendall.
