Baby Showers, Christenings and Naming Ceremonies
Baby showers are increasing in popularity in the UK – traditionally they are held in the expectant mum’s home, however this can be stressful if you’re restricted on space. Our barn allows you to invite as many friends as you like, without worrying about how you’re going to squash them all into your living room!
If you’re organising on behalf of the mum-to-be, think of her surprise as she walks into our beautifully decorated barn to be greeted by her nearest and dearest for an afternoon of fun games, presents and delicious food. And once the baby is born, why not visit us to celebrate their christening or naming ceremony? Our venue is a wonderful family friendly location to socialise with your guests after the formalities are over.
Tired of kids parties in the same old soft play? Our barn provides a unique and exciting venue that is sure to please both children and parents! Whether it’s for a princess tea party or a nautical pirate bash, the Hayloft is a blank canvas that can be decorated to fit your theme perfectly. Our outdoor space is also perfect for games, sand pits, messy play activities and picnics.
Hen Tea Parties
Hate the idea of a pub crawl whilst wearing L-plates and silly hats? Then opt for a sophisticated afternoon tea with your friends in our traditional tea room, where you can tuck into a delicious array of sandwiches, cakes and a glass of bubbly. We also have a hot tub in the garden – perfect for brides-to-be who want to feel pampered before their big day!
