Detailed Description

The main building, the Long Barn, has a spectacular oak “raised cruck” roof, three giant candelabra, wall-mounted candle holders, a fairy-lit ceiling and, of course, a barn-sized stone fireplace. This creates an enchanting and romantic atmosphere, perfect for Civil Ceremonies or for the arrival point after a Church Wedding – and this later becomes the dance floor! Joining the Long Barn is the Dining Room, the old cow byre, with another lovely oak roof, a glass wall looking into the Courtyard on one side, and windows to a fantastic Northumbrian view on the other. The Dining Room is spacious and luxurious for smaller numbers, but will accommodate higher numbers. At the end of the Dining Room is a copper-clad bar, which has a licence until 1am. The Courtyard is sheltered by the buildings and is perfect for post-ceremony drinks on a mild day, and at night looks magical with fairy-lit trees, fire pits and lanterns. There are 3 giant oak planters with seats around them, 6 umbrella-topped trees, and various benches, cosy sun traps and planted troughs and borders. There is also a shelter with garden furniture; providing a covered outside area and a smokers’ refuge. The northernmost building, the Store Room, contains smart toilets and also the Bride’s Room, where, before Civil ceremonies, the Bride can arrive discreetly and see the Registrars before making her entrance into the Long Room. Completing the package is our inimitable menus. Their formula is “Buy the best, cook it simply, serve it generously”. We like to make our food dramatic as well as delicious, so there’s an 8-spit rotisserie visible through a glass screen from the Dining Room, and large mobile BBQ which can be moved in and out of sight as appropriate.

  • Travel Notes:
  • From Newcastle; head out on the A69 towards Hexham. Before reaching Hexham, and just after a turning towards Newton, take the first exit on the large roundabout onto the A68. At the next roundabout, take the second exit (straight over the roundabout). You will drive up a slight hill which bears to the left, and when you reach the top of the hill you will see the first exit to Healey – however, keep on going until you see the second turning to Healey shortly after. This road is narrow, but there are plenty of passing places. Healey Barn is just off this road on your left, you will see the sign.
