The rear of the Carpenter’s Barn opens out to a large wooden deck partially covered by a 10m by 12m semi-permanent marquee. Single span, the marquee can seat 125 guests for formal dining in an uninterrupted space. There are windows on the south, east and west walls of the marquee and double doors on the west side. In the heat of summer wall panels can be removed.
A lining is available for this marquee as an “add-on”. This marquee is also ideal for less formal entertaining, furnished for example, with trestle tables and straw bale seating.
An outdoor wedding in England requires planning to deal with unpredictable weather. To ensure your guests enjoy their day we can offer complimentary use of our marquee heater. However there will be a charge for the fuel used. Please see our price list for details of fuel charge.
The marquee is lit with electric powered floor uplighters in each of the corners and we also have a three ceiling candle lanterns for use in the unlined marquee. Lined marquees are lit with chandeliers with electric light bulbs. You will need to supply your own candle lanterns for the tables, if desired. Please note we do not allow exposed flames either in the marquee or barn.
You may see gaps in the calendar but the site is not available for weddings on these dates. Please note that although we try to keep this calendar up to date we can not guarantee availability of dates. Please do not make any arrangements until availabilty has been confirmed.
