Our venue is full of charm. We have stunning views across the urban landscape of Northampton to the rolling countryside of the South Northants Nene Valley. Dating back to 1776, this former working farm comprises of a complex of farmhouse, 2 barns and several outbuildings. After a sympathetic conversion to modern use, the barns still retain a lot of their features, with exposed wooden beams, stonework and solid wood flooring creating a rustic, country styled interior that lends itself wonderfully to intimate events.
Sitting in 13 acres of land, from well tendered English styled gardens to dense woodland areas, The Barns at Hunsbury Hill are part of a ‘Hanoverian’ tradition and a rare and unique example of a model farm. The farm complex was built in 1776 as the Hunsbury Hill Farm by Edward Bouverie and along with two smaller farms in the area, provided food to nearby Delapre Abbey.
An octagonal grassed courtyard takes centre stage with the Farmhouse, two barns, the larger High Barn and the smaller, more intimate Low Barn, animal sheds and ‘hovels’ wrapping themselves around this focal point. Not only does the courtyard provide a great flow to your event, but also great shelter, enabling us to use the outside as much as possible to offer a ‘typical’ summer English event.
We know that no two weddings are the same. Not only should your wedding look like the image you have created in your mind, but also, more importantly the day should be the most enjoyable day of your life. With that, experience is needed! We have bundles of experience and will work with you to make sure every detail is covered so we share your vision and thoughts.
The Barns make a perfect backdrop to your wedding, the rustic charm of exposed beams and brick give a warm intimate vibe. Not to mention our High Barn looks great against your decor, whether it be filled with tissue paper pompoms, jam jars of country flowers wrapped in lace, oodles of bunting, or left simple and elegant.
