Anniversaries and Family Parties

Wedding anniversaries and family parties at Hendall have included anniversary lunches, dinner parties, christenings, birthday bashes and evening receptions.

We are totally open to what you would like to celebrate with us – whether it is a special anniversary lunch or party, or it could be a special birthday party or perhaps a family christening.

We have many guests come from East Sussex, West Sussex and even Kent, especially Tunbridge Wells, to have their celebrations in our beautiful stone barn or outside on our extensive lawns.

By choosing one of our highly experienced ‘approved caterers’, for you wedding anniversaries and family parties, clients can create an individual and homely occasion with precisely the right atmosphere and privacy required.

You can take advantage of the acoustic qualities in the Stone Barn with any of our recommended musicians and singers or introduce one of your own contacts.

The Stone Barn is the perfect building for a birthday or anniversary occasion. Numbers between 50 and 80 can be seated on the lower level allowing the upper level and the terrace for reception drinks and canapés to be served.  Our 6ft round tables, with a comfortable 10 to each table, can be arranged in any layout.

Alternatively we can provide one long ‘baronial style’ dining table.

There are lots of options with one of our approved caterers’ hiring in whatever style of table linen, glasses or place settings you might require.  We do not charge corkage allowing you to bring in your preferred Champagne, Prosecco, wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks.

The Stone Barn can be dressed or decorated internally and externally in any way you would like – families have produced their own floral displays and it does not take much to create a truly special setting for a memorable occasion.

You will find a large Christmas Tree outside the front of the Stone Barn in place for December events.

In the summer months you might wish to have a barbeque or hog roast on the lawn.  The enclosed nature of the surrounding buildings means that your family and guests are ever present.
