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.


  • The new Cart Barn is just gorgeous

    We had the most wonderful wedding at Hendall in October. From the very beginning, Viki, Nicola and Peter were so helpful, and we fell in love with the venue at first sight.
    On the day, everything ran so smoothly with their help, and we had the most wonderful day. What a beautiful venue and grounds to celebrate in, thank you so, so much to all of you.
    And the new Cart Barn is just gorgeous!

  • We will absolutely come back to stay in the cart barn again!

    We booked the accommodation – The Old Granary and The Cart Barn which were equally wonderful. It made the day even more special, knowing that we would be staying at Hendall with our nearest and dearest the night before and the night of the wedding! Highly recommend Hendall for your day. We will absolutely come back to stay in the cart barn again!
