Land owner Charles Perry rebuilt Templars Barn in 1998. The barn was originally used for threshing corn where the process of loosen the edible part of the grain from the stalks would happen. The entire barn is 7 bays long with wooden pegs in each of the bays, typical to the structure of thrashing barns. On the roof you will see a shade of pink because it reminded Mr. Perry of the family holidays in the south of France.To the west of the barn, Mr. Perry planted 180 trees in the meadow. This was because he wanted to replace the wood that was used in the restorative process. The property also comes with ample parking and a paddock for outdoor drinks and activities.Templars is still a working farm today so perfect for a rustic yet elegant special occasion!

Built in 2014 and designed by a top London architect, the Barn provides the ideal space for corporate parties, meetings, retreats, lunch parties, small wedding receptions for up to 30, talks, or as an indoor photoshoot location.

Capacity and Info PDF – The Barn

If dancing is required following a sit-down dinner for 24, the table will be left in place but the sofas normally grouped around the fire will be re-set around the walls of the barn, creating a very nice dance-floor.

If the Barn is used for a drinks party or bowl (standing) supper party, the sitting area is dismantled, the dining table shrunk to minimum. Space for 70-80 people.

For a presentation which requires theatre style seating, all furniture would be removed. Space for 120 chairs. 

A balconied mezzanine floor provides additional space that can be configured according to the occasion.

The Barn is equipped with a state of the art audio-visual system and office presentation systems.  It also has a regularly-tuned, good quality upright piano.

The kitchen is designed as a professional catering kitchen, and top-of-the-range crockery, glassware and table linen is provided.

Shower and loos are downstairs, with a further disabled loo at ground level.

 

A contemporary event space in a class of its own. A beautifully modern take on a countryside wedding venue. And, above all, the place to host. A new venue has opened at Snelsmore Common. Filled with  bespoke design, attention to detail and contemporary architecture. The gardens offer unique sculptured zones and it is available for all kinds of entertainment, not just weddings. They are excited to announce they are opening on 29th July 2021
