Wedding Receptions & Civil Ceremonies
Our glorious split level Stone Barn is very adaptable for receptions, formal dining, civil ceremonies and dancing. This lovely building has rough stone walls dating from the 17th Century, sophisticated lighting and excellent acoustics. We encourage clients to use the internal space creatively with a wide range of tried and tested caterer’s to choose from. The south-facing terrace, lawns and self-catering barn (offering bridal or family accommodation) combine to provide a lovely setting for your special day.
Corporate Events & Business Meetings
We provide complete privacy and easy accessibility for company conferences, meetings, private lunches, staff events, team building and client entertaining. Using both our furnished Conference Room and the Stone Barn there is tremendous scope for smaller or larger events – be they formal or informal in style. We are happy to quote for anything from a short meeting to a three day conference. We can also help with finding and transport to /from suitable hotels or local accommodation.
Special Family Occasions & Anniversaries
Family gatherings and parties at Hendall have included anniversary lunches and evening receptions. By choosing one of our highly experienced ‘approved caterers’, 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.
Charity, Local & Community Events
Anyone wishing to organise any event with a charitable or not for profit purpose will find us enthusiastic to assist and able to offer discounted or nominal hire rates.
So far we have hosted several lunches, a vintage tea/fashion show, a performance of As You Like It and a WW1 commemoration. A classical concert, singing groups and a Pilates class have used the buildings to great effect.
Creative Workshops & Courses
Hendall is an ideal place to hold any kind of creative, artistic, musical, dance or culinary group activity.
The Studio/Conference Room has been used for art classes, the caterer’s kitchen for cookery classes and The Stone Barn for singing groups.
This is something becoming more and more popular at Hendall, due to the beautiful location. There is tremendous scope for courses, demonstrations, tutorials, training and teaching.
Exhibitions, Performances & Photo-Shoots
Art exhibitions, book launches, lectures, award ceremonies and photo-shoots would all work brilliantly in the Stone Barn. Each event is tailored accordingly, and we love seeing the barn used in a different way and set up.
We have seating for up to 130 attendees, a sound system and disabled access throughout the buildings.
Additionally we can hire in any props, lighting or AV requirements for your needs.
Hendall offers exclusive use of the barn, terrace and lawn when hosting a Christmas party. A Christmas tree always adorns the lawn at the front of the barn, offering a festive feel upon arrival to Hendall. Inside, the barn can be adapted and decorated according to your needs and requirements and can look beautifully festive with a few simple touches. Lunchtime or evening events are possible for up to 100 guests and one of our approved caterers can provide you with a traditional Christmas meal or offer something completely different and alternative.
