The Barn, the main hall, is 15.8 metres long by 8.5 metres wide with a vaulted ceiling making it very light and airy.
It has a heated sprung timber floor which is ideal for fitness and wellbeing activities such as Pilates, Yoga and dance classes. It is also ideal for performance events, exhibitions, weddings, children’s parties and any larger gathering.
It can accommodate up to 100 people seated at tables or up to 125 seated in rows for stage performances, conferences, seminars etc.
There is a service door from the Kitchen direct to the Barn if required and the external doors can be opened to make use of the adjacent patio and the grassed area beyond, giving great additional space in good weather.
Measuring 9m x 4.5m, The Cart Shed has lots of north facing natural daylight from the wrap-around windows. It is perfect for business meetings, social groups, arts & crafts, smaller dining functions and children’s group activities.
Tables and chairs can be arranged in a variety of layouts to suit gatherings of up to 20 people.
Bi-fold glass doors to the Lobby can be fully closed for a private, quiet space or with the doors fully opened up, it can be utilised in conjunction with the Lobby to make a very spacious area.
There is a sink hidden behind the sliding cupboard doors, adding to the versatility of The Cart Shed for arts & crafts and children’s activities in particular.
Upstairs, the large and light Gallery is a mezzanine room with a glass balustrade and sloped ceiling, looking over to the large Lobby & Bar below.
It is often used alongside The Barn or The Cart Shed, or even just with The Lobby, and adds extra space and atmosphere to larger events.
It is also perfect as a break-out area for business or community meetings, a great space for more informal classes and meetings, and a lovely exhibition space.
Much more than simply an entrance to the rest of the building, our Lobby is a striking, full-height spacious & stylish space of its own. It offers a useful addition when used alongside other parts of the building, or occasionally on its own.
The Lobby is ideal for social uses, for a drinks reception, as a quieter area to a larger event or for community gatherings. It is frequently used by our regular Community activities – Coffee Mornings, Pop Up Pub and Farmer’s Market.
Our Bar is housed in The Lobby, a service that can be provided for functions that require it.
