Hawke barn is a beautiful 16th century building which oozes rustic charm. Exposed heavy oak beams, a high open-vaulted ceiling, exposed stonework, flagstone floors and contemporary full-height windows allow a flood of natural warm light and combine to create a stunning venue for all styles of weddings and celebration. The timeless and natural aesthetic of the barn lends itself to any number of décor ideas, enabling you or your wedding planner to really let the imagination run wild. The main doors open out to the sheltered and landscaped south facing private courtyard, and an impressive cluster of mature Beech trees overlook from the southwest boundary with the horses looking out from their stable windows form the distant backdrop. Guests can mingle freely between barn and courtyard creating a relaxed & sociable vibe perfect for any occasion.

Peaceful, lovingly restored, unique barn.
Memorable summers day at Hawke Barn, pleasantly cool from the shade of the ancient Beech trees and thick centuries old walls, surprisingly spacious inside, and perfect outside seating areas allowed the outside & inside to flow seamlessly as one. We opted for trestle tables & matching antique wooden chairs. our pictures are beautiful with stunning panoramic back drops, ancient trees, water & wild flowers. We could feel the love in this very peaceful, lovingly restored, and unique barn.

Warm romantic atmosphere
Fantastic day at Hawke Barn. The Eco Stove created a warm romantic atmosphere on a chilly day. The scenery is sensational. A fabulous time was had by all. Great location, venue & facilities. Food from the suggested caterer was delicious. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a stunning secluded spot and a charming barn. We didn't want to leave!! Thank you for making it so special.

Wonderful Location
What a wonderful location Hawke Barn is - sheltered yet with fabulous views. The Barn itself has all the facilities you would expect, and is bright and welcoming. Having all the horses around was a real bonus too, and gave ample photo opportunities! It was especially nice for the bride and groom and several family members to be able to stay in the deluxe cottages onsite. Everyone involved were so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend Hawke Barn as a wedding venue
